How is Jeb going to downplay the multiple arrests of his daughter
on drug charges when he runs in 2008?

And don't give me any of that "Let's not bring the children into it crap."

What will they do? Get her "saved" in time for 2006 or 07? Will she give a moving speech about how her father never gave up on her at the RNC in 08?

They put lipstick on W and got him elected. How will they handle this problem? Her arrests are more public, and there is a less tolerant environment out there for hard drug use vs. W's documented arrests for DUI.

1. Not to mention his wife's problems with customs
remember back when she tried to sneak some stuff (fur coats?) pass them? She got off with a small fine.

The daughter will probably meet with an unfortnate accident after her sit down with Bill Graham fails to take hold.

2. What arrests? She was never arrested.
It never happened. Why are you so filled with hate toward the Bush family. :evilgrin:

5. Haven't seen it in the newspapers...can't find any legal papers
Anyone who has brought it up has committed suicide or been involved in aircraft accidents.

Nothing to see here -- move on.

4. He'll pull a "Lynne Cheney" and --
-- accuse his opponent of being a "bad" man/woman for stating what's already public and obvious.

6. That's not fair game if you ask me
There's plenty to run against Jeb on than to do the Repug strategy of attacking his family. Leave his wife and kids out of this.

Let's have some civility in all this.

10. No, it's not A fair game, anymore.
I used to feel that way, but it is no longer appropriate to play fair.

This is my own opinion. I'm glad that there are some who still have the faith to take to moral high ground.

8. They'll probably try and get her sober enough to make it through the...
...nomination and convention, then tuck her away somewhere.

9. He won't have to.
The obedient media will do it for him. Just wait, pretty soon we'll be hearing talk of another repug camelot.

11. And if the Dem nominee has a similar issue in his/her family
the whisper campaign would be in full swing, i.e.,

"I heard that she's addicted to drugs because of abuse in her childhood. YES, that kind of abuse."

Then FOX would pick it up, "Does child sexual abuse lead to drug addiction?"

13. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Worked for W!
Nothing better than a shiny new redeemed soul!

14. The boilerplate P.R. solution.
Similar to Rush Limbaugh. They'll put her through rehab again for good measure. Then, of course, she'll find the lord and get some plastic surgery and a stylist.

After that it will be a "private matter" which the media will take great pains to respect. No public downplay by Jeb required.

17. They'll remove her from the family tree
just as they did with retarded family members or others with lurid pasts/multiple marriages of which they disapprove (as per Kitty Kelley in her book). "Daughter? Jeb has no daughter."
