Americans Should be Terrified of the Bush Family Dynasty’s Future Aspirations

jeb-1We’ve already had 12 years of a Bush in the White House. The first was George H.W. Bush, who served one term as president (and tried but failed to win a second term). Then, of course, we had George W. Bush who served from 2001-2009. And I think all of us with any kind of decent memory know what kind of horrific damage his presidency did to this country.

Let’s also not forget that George H.W. Bush was vice president during Reagan’s administration. So if you want to count that, since 1981, we’ve had someone from the Bush family in (or directly associated with) the White House for 20 of the last 33 years.

And you would think that after George W. Bush’s horrific tenure as president, that no other Bush would stand a change in hell at becoming president again. But you’d be wrong.

If all indications I’m seeing are correct, Jeb Bush seems poised for a run at president in 2016. In fact, it’s been my belief all along that Jeb is the son the Bush family really wanted to run for president. It just so happens George managed to get there first.

But Jeb isn’t the only problem. His son, George P. Bush, is another huge issue. Because the Republican party is clearly priming him to run for president one day as well. He’s currently the “up and coming” golden boy in Texas for the GOP. And at 38-years-old, he would be the perfect age of 48 to run in 2024 if his father managed to become president and serve two terms.

Just think about that for a second. If that were to happen, we’d potentially be facing sixteen straight years of the Bush family being in control of the White House. But not only that, say Jeb and George P. Bush served two terms each (2017-2033), that would mean that between 1989-2033 a Bush would have controlled the White House for 28 of 44 years. And that’s not including the 8 years George H.W. Bush was vice president. So, when you factor in those 8 years, that puts a Bush as either president or vice president for 36 of 44 years. And if that doesn’t strike at least a little bit of fear into every single American, I’m not sure what will.

And for anyone taking this as simply hypothetical nonsense, do so at your own peril. It’s not at all out of the realm of possibility that Jeb Bush could be elected president in 2016. In fact, I think if he runs, he’ll win the GOP nomination. And trust me when I say they are grooming his son, George P. Bush, to run for president one day.

Will it be immediately after his father’s potential presidency? I obviously can’t say for certain. But I can promise you it is coming.

And I’m not sure about all of you, but the thought of even one more Bush occupying the White House absolutely terrifies me. Let alone a “Bush empire” being placed upon the American people where we’re subjected to a potential sixteen straight years of Bush presidencies.

Liberals, let’s make damn sure we don’t let that happen.
