The "multiracial" Republican convention reminded me of these Bush quotes:
1) In 2000, George Bush Senior referred to his son George W's nephew, George P. Bush and his siblings, all of whom are half Mexican, as "the little brown ones".

2) WASHINGTON - It was Condoleezza Rice, national security advisor, who helped her boss out of the embarassing situation. During a conversation between the two presidents, George W. Bush, 55, (USA) and Fernando Henrique Cardoso, 71, (Brazil), Bush bewildered his colleague with the question "DO YOU HAVE BLACKS, TOO?" Rice, 47, noticing how astonished the Brazilian was, saved the day by telling Bush "Mr. President, Brazil probably has more blacks than the USA. Some say it's the country with the most blacks outside Africa."
Later, Brazilian president Cardoso said, regarding Latin America, Bush was still in his "learning phase."

3) "SOME people don't believe Iraq can be free; that if you're Muslim, or perhaps brown-skinned, you can't be self-governing or free." - 13 April 2004

4) "You know there's a lot of people in the world who don't believe that, that people whose skin color may not be the same as OURS can be free and self governing. I reject that. I reject that strongly. I believe that people who practice the Muslim faith can self-govern. I believe that people whose skins aren't necessarily, you know, are a different color than white, can self-govern." - 30 April 2004

3. The GOP is all about illusion...
And, in reality, everything about them is a lie.

4. Great Post!-You ought to hear how Bush & Buds talk at Houston C-Clubs!
You wouldnt believe it. I would not even repeat their comments on this Forum, that is how racially bad they are!

Bush and his Houstonian "Texas Mafia" friends embarrass the hell out of some of our Houston Cartel members with their racial comments. The Bush-GOP "Texas Mafia" is full-blown white supremacists, excuse me Im being politically incorrect, White Nationalists that uses the Southern Baptist Convention and Christianity to hide behind.

Many key people in the GOP Power Party are flat David Duke style KKKers, like Pat Buchanan. Hell, David Duke's own organization has some of Pat Buchanan's published work, and other GOP "Power Party" individuals, reflected in what they fully support and reference!

I swear on a stack of Bibles, as a White Christian, my statements here are 100% accurate on this subject! - R.E.

I thought his article was interesting:

In 2000, GOP paraded their diversity - Now Shows their True Color, WHITE!
