Is George H.W. Bush a Neo-Con?
On the one hand he really belived in working through international institutions, even if we didn't like his policies. He opposed a full scale war in Iraq to depose Saddam and occupy the country. He reduced the military budget and he did order a humanitarian mission to Somalia. Is he really a neo-con?

1. I don't think he is. He is a Carliler (they are bigger than
some countries).

2. He's a war profiteer and a thief. Comes from a long line of war
profiteers. He's using religion in order to solidify his wacko base.

3. He's a "whatever will make me a winner" mentality.
And nothing else...

4. Stupid is as stupid does.
I think that makes him a neocon.

5. a humanitarian mission to Somalia
PLEASE; that man has never done a humanitarian thing in his LIFE. Pissed off at Clinton beating the tar out of him, he ordered troops over there to give Clinton something to deal with.

6. All the Bush Family + Neo Con


Pappy must be one now because Georgie can't think without help.
Have you noticed that Daddy is a silent partner in all thi, he hardly has anything to say now days.

Still water run s deep and I bet when they get to the bottom of this,Pappy will be a major player.

Remember too that Condi was hand picked by Pappy. That means she is his mouth piece.
