Poppy "Dying Inside" - Bush JR Has Repudiated Everything Bush Sr Stood For
Advertisements [?]
One proud Poppy ... but

W follies mar legacy, ex-Prez's aides gripe

BY THOMAS M. DEFRANK
DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU CHIEF

..................

Indeed, one of the worst-kept secrets in Bush World is the dismay, in some cases disdain, harbored by many senior aides of the former President toward the administration of his son - 41 and 43, as many call them, political shorthand that refers to their numerical places in American presidential history.

For five years, the 41s have bit their collective tongues as, they complain, the 43s ignored their counsel. But as the war in Iraq has worsened and public support for the current administration has tanked, loyalists of the elder Bush have found it impossible to suppress their disillusionment - particularly their belief that many of 43's policies are a stick in the eye of his father.

"Forty-three has now repudiated everything 41 stands for, and still he won't say a word," a key member of the elder Bush alumni said. "Personally, I think he's dying inside."

.........

"By comparison, the old man looks better and better," a senior 41 hand said, with undisguised satisfaction.
