W appointed Roberts. Patrician, big-government W and his father stripped the GOP of ALL its Reagan values. W’s tepid response to Barney Frank’s mortgage plan for crack dealers, along with the social liberal values of his mother, burqa-wearing wife Laura, and lefty twin daughters, is ample proof of the Latin dictum of “Qui tacet consentit”, silence implies consent.
The Bushes HAD the bully pulpit of the Oval Office but NEVER used it to forcefully argue a single conservative economic or social principle. They are NOT conservatives.
At most, they were adequate SecDefs for a brief spell, and merely slightly better than the alternatives, Dukakis, Gore and Kerry would have been.
There is NOTHING else to praise about the Bush family, and their Saudi-smegma-licking legacy. They COULD have done what Newt rightly called for, which is to overturn the US State Department and purge it of its Wahhabi-pensioned diplomats and lackeys. It was under W that the State Department ACCELERATED the visas of Saudis AFTER 9/11. It is because of the lucrative Saudi gravy train that Hillary sought to be SecState.
“So in a Gingrich administration, the opening day, there will be an executive order about two hours after the inaugural address; we will send the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as of that day.
If you will accept it, I will ask John Bolton to be Secretary of State.
But I will only appoint him if he will agree that his first job is the complete and thorough transformation of the State Department and the replacement of the current Foreign Service culture with a new entrepreneurial and aggressive culture dedicated to the proposition that defending freedom and defending America is the first business of the State Department, not appeasing our opponents.
And I will ask the Congress to liberate the intelligence community, so we can once again go back to effective covert operations and to effective intelligence gathering, and not be forced to rely on pseudo-allies such as the Pakistanis who, clearly, had to be conspiring to hide bin Laden for eight years, since he was hiding in the national military city. “ – Newt Gingrich
The Bush’s f-ing corporate cronyism and tolerance of GOP pork-barreling through 2006 literally HANDED the country over to Pelosi, Reid and Obama for their socialist cronyism and pork-barreling.
GHW Bush gave us 19 years of Souter. W tried to give us Harriet Miers, then Gonzales and we wound up with Obamacare-loving Roberts.
If Jeb or anyone with Bush DNA is still on your tongue as a candidate for ANYTHING, to HELL with you as a Republican.
