Gov. Bush would like to see ship named for dad based in Florida
Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Navy should put a new aircraft carrier at the Mayport Naval Station once the USS John F. Kennedy is mothballed, Gov. Jeb Bush said, and suggested it should be one that's named for another president, one the governor knows well.

Bush was in Virginia earlier this month for the christening of the USS George H.W. Bush, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier named after the 82-year-old former president - and father of the Florida governor.

The younger Bush said this week that he has made a case to the Navy that Mayport needs to remain a carrier port and that the ship with his family name on it would be nice to have.

"It makes all the sense in the world from the perspective of protecting the homeland and our national security that it would be housed here, berthed here," Bush said. "And it would be fantastic personally for me to have the George H.W. Bush at Mayport."

2. Excuse me...but dosen't "Poppy" already have an aircraft carrier....
named after him? Didn't I just see a christening of that the other day?

An aircraft carrier, a freaking AIRPORT AND CIA Headquarters all bears the name of "41". For fuck's sake. :eyes:

6. Sounds like Jebbie is positioning himself for a new disposition
in Poppy's new Will as well as taking financial well wishes from sources with interests in maintaining the new ship.

9. That's a bit much. But I'd be in favor of a garbage scow named
for his mother.

11. Bushes should get over trying to think of the country as their own
private realm, filled with mostly peasants from coast to coast, ready to drop everything and lay down their lives for bogus wars for them.

I think Jeb believes it would be too cool to take the George H. W. Bush carrier to launch an invasion of Cuba, seeing his pops gave two of his boats to be used in the Bay of Pigs long ago. They've had a determination to get back there and destroy the Cuban government and return all those greedy, violent, dirty, imperious, racist right-wing monster "exiles" to power who drove the Cuban people to revolution in the first place, like fighting the Civil War all over again, so the slave owners can win next time.

13. What will the ship be called? "Bail out early and get your buddies killed"
GHWB was shitty pilot that got people killed during WWII. He didn't sign up for duty until his Nazi supporting father got nailed for helping Hitler. He's hardly worth the admiration.

14. I'd like to see the ship renamed
And the entire Bush clan behind bars.

But since I'm just an honest American citizen, I'm not likely to get my wish.

15. Who'd want to be stationed on the Failure Part I?
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 04:24 PM by seasat
They can name Shrub's Failure Part II. It's possible they may have a garbage scow available, though.

The Navy started naming ships for living politicians, instead of famous battles and dead hero's

24. llmart would like to see.....
a ship with the whole Bush family on it sink in the Atlantic. There must be some hungry sharks that need feeding. Why, Babs alone could be a meal for several sharks.
