Cruel Conservatives Make Disco Jesus Cry


I hate Donald Trump. Let me rephrase that. I love Donald Trump. Not for his crass racism and misogyny, but for the fact that this man is no longer the presumptive presidential nominee of the Republican Party.
Republican Donald Trump is pulling away from the pack in the race for the party's U.S. presidential nomination, widening his lead over his closest rivals in the past week, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Friday.

Republican voters show no signs they are growing weary of the brash real estate mogul, who has dominated political headlines and the 17-strong Republican presidential field with his tough talk about immigration and insults directed at his political rivals. The candidates are vying to be nominated to represent their party in the November 2016 general election.
Things are not going well for our former governor. Things are so bad for Jeb that he has now, in desperation, come out as bi-racial.
A Jeb Bush-supporting Super Pac has issued a campaign leaflet that appears to show the Republican presidential candidate with one white hand and one black. “Why Jeb?” asks the mailer, which was sent to 86,000 early-voting Iowans and shows the former Florida governor standing before the Third Avenue Bridge in Cedar Rapids, city hall rising in the background. As Bush, the establishment favorite, trails Donald Trump by double digits in most polls, the question may have seemed worth asking – and answering. But among the public, the image prompted only bemusement and ridicule.

Ridiculous Photoshop failures aside, let's entertain the question – why Jeb? Because we love war and recession? Because sadomasochists need love too? Because America is that stupid? We had that dolt Sarah Palin running around saying that Obama was palling around with terrorists, but the Bush family has been adopting them. Remember Bandar Bush?

But you can't hold Jeb Bush accountable for the failures of his brother, right? Bunk! As a signatory member of Project for a New American Century in the late 1990s, Jeb Bush was an early architect of the failed policies that cost this country trillions of dollars and thousands of lives. He has now surrounded himself with almost exactly the same foreign policy team. Maybe Cheney can be his running mate?

Former Governor, Senator, and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Bob Graham lays out a stunning incitement of the failures of the most recent Bush administration in his 2004 book, INTELLIGENCE MATTERS The CIA, the FBI, Saudi Arabia, and the Failure of America’s War on Terror.
In sum, I will argue that the Bush administration’s action and inaction—in protecting a foreign government which played a central role in the loss of nearly 3,000 lives(Saudi Arabia); in failing to alert government agencies of known tactics of terrorists; in diverting the nation from the real war on terrorism in Afghanistan to a falsely justified war in Iraq; and in politicizing and falsifying intelligence in order to build support for that war, and then in covering up these and other actions—constitute an indictment of President Bush’s leadership so serious that it warrants his removal from office.
When it comes to the plague of the Bush family, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Even Donald Trump would be an improvement.
