Since Roosevelt, No GOP Presidential Campaign Has Won Vote Without a Bush or Nixon on Ticket

http://www.truth-out.org/buzzflash/commentary/item/17632-since-roosevelt-no-gop-presidential-campaign-has-won-vote-without-a-bush-or-nixon-on-ticket-jeb-bush-2016-ugh

I read this political trivia the other day and was in disbelief for a moment: no Republican presidential campaign has won an election since Roosevelt without a Bush or Nixon on the ticket.

Then I started backtracking and it's true.

1. You have to go back 84 years for the last GOP ticket without a Nixon or a Bush that won

 

Hoover/Curtis, 1928.

2. OUCH, watch out for Jeb in 2016.

 

There's a slew of GHW's grandchildren who are of age to start seeking office, too. George P. just filed to get on the Texas State ballot.

4. Here's another weird fact

 

Romney/Ryan was the first GOP ticket without a Bush or a Dole since Nixon/Agnew in 1972.
