And I still get so much joy just saying these words: President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Not a small thing, people. Thanks to all who worked and helped make it happen.
America is in very good hands and that bodes well for the world. Peace.
are the same reasons fearful and cautious Democrats said that...
Jerry Brown could never be elected if he ran for Governor...
Tom Bradley could never be elected Mayor of Los Angeles...
Hillary Clinton could never be elected as a Senator from New York...
John Kennedy could never be elected President...
Elizabeth Warren could never be elected Senator in Massachussettes...
Ann Richards could never be elected Governor of Texas...
And Barack Obama could never be elected if he ran for President...
And on and on and on and on...(I mean really goes on and on and on...)
If Ashley Judd runs, she will be elected.
Senator Ashley Judd. Yep. Sounds just fine to me, but what do I know? I supported all of the above when all I heard was "voters aren't ready for this yet."
Well, they are ready. And so is Kentucky.
(Edited for my typos: the hallmark of any of my OP's)
Jeb Bush wants to be President of the United States? Really?
Before you laugh it off, the list below is just a brief sketch of the stamp the Bush Family has left on our nation. It does not begin to address their cronies who they hand selected to fill the U.S. government from Cabinet positions to the lowest federal office in the land for over 60 years. It does not touch on the dictators (including those euphemistically we still call "Royal Families" that they also put in power...or the ones they pulled from power when the Bush shit got a little to close to the fan.
No, the list below is just a sober reminder to all who think Americans are weary of the Bushes. Laugh it off if you will. Others have laughed before you. The Bushes usually get the last laugh.
The Bush Family is a fully operational government-in-waiting ready to take office on Day One in 2017. They always have been. Who do you think got Ronald Reagan up and running so quickly in 1981...and got those weapons delivered to Iran so quickly after the inauguration? You actually don't believe it was Ronald Reagan, do you? George did it. He later said "I wasn't in the loop" with Iran/Contra. Of course, not. He was outside the loop drawing it.
The 2016 Republican nomination might just already be a done deal. Karl Rove is ready to move all the other Republican primary candidates out of the way. Just pay close attention as to how any credible challenger to Jeb's chances in 2016 will be compromised...destroyed. Any challenger should watch their back or have their price ready to present to Karl for dropping out. Karl can arrange things. He's a win/win kind of guy. One by one they will be picked off or convinced not to run against Jeb.
They have the means and the motivation.
Yes, Prescott Bush's grandson has now told us all that he's ready to "serve". Why not, after all, what's another 100 years of America's future for anyway if it doesn't belong to the Bush Family?
Others can add to this list, but I'll just say this: Past is Prologue.
