Bush for Clinton

Posted by on Fri, Aug 16, 2013 at 2:04 PM

My head hurts when I try to digest this information:

Former President George W. Bush’s daughter would like to see Hillary Clinton make another bid for the White House.

Barbara Bush, 31, tells People magazine in a new interview that the former first lady is “unbelievably accomplished,” and that she wants Clinton to run for president.

It's not an endorsement—when the time comes, Bush will fall in line and endorse whoever the Republicans pick—and it's not really important in the long run, but it's still totally fucking weird.

Worst news for a Clinton candidacy yet; a Bush ... nod?

It's really not that unusual for republicans to raise kids who are dems. Look at the Reagans, or my parents for that matter.

Maybe only liberals are 100% partisan 100% of the time.

That doesn't surprise me. She lives in New York City and is kind of a hipster (for her class background anyway). It would surprise me more if she were a Republican activist.

Not really surprising. The 0.01% E-leets are all in it together, and any perceived differences in their agendas are due largely to the corporate media's phony political circus.

No, fucknuts, neither your father's nor husband's crimes are inherited.

W wants Hillary to run because he wants the sadistic satisfaction of having his brother Jeb steal the election away from her.

She's not a politician, is she? Why do we assume she'll "fall in line"?

Is there any other independent voters who crave candidates that are not ascendants to the throne? Fucks sake, it's barely better than medieval times.

Trust not a Republican who expresses a preference for a potential Democratic candidate. He/She has shit up his/her sleeve.

I seriously hate to be the one to awaken the slumbering commenters here, but the Clinton and Bush families have made some serious big bucks working together lobbying for all those "free trade" agreements.

And Chelsea went to work at McKinsey & Company, helping to continue the neocon/neolib dream of offshoring all the jobs in America!

Nothing could be as predictable as this!

A. I, too, wish for my rival party - every party - to nominate a competent candidate. I love my country a bit more than I love my party.

B. The Bushes and Clintons are friends. Their grandkids will marry and combine the dynasties. Their great-grandkids will simultaneously govern 12 states.

Why wouldn't Barbara vote for Mrs. Clinton in 2016? I could see her voting for Clinton over Santorum, Paul or any of the other clown car occupants who get the nod on the Repub side.
