Barbara Bush hopes the “beautiful” Sarah Palin stays home in Alaska. George Herbert Walker Bush doesn’t understand TEA Parties. He’s not shocked at his wife’s comment. It’s likely a well-discussed topic around their dining table. And the senior Bush doesn’t understand TEA Parties. Isn’t Taxed Enough Already clear enough for anyone? History shows us the only way not to be TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY is to be an advocate for constitutional legislation. It’s not that hard. No one should know this better than George Herbert Walker Bush. See the video below.
Bush 41 set the bar to the new low when he promised Republicans “read my lips, no new taxes.” He raised taxes. In some ways, the TEA party movement got an unrecognized start with that event – latent thought it was. It was a very tough lesson for conservatives. How many times have you uttered: “Read my lips, no new taxes?” I’ve shouted it at my television more than once.
Barbara Bush’s comment was rude, and she knew it, and it was sexist. A woman who has had a husband and a son occupy the Oval Office, apparently thinks being “beautiful” is enough. I know she is a bold, out-spoken woman, but she cannot dispute the fact that millions love Sarah Palin. Like it or not, Sarah is on the world-stage. How about letting the voters decide?Surprise! Surprise! Voters know best. It’s a TEA Party thing.
I suggest Mrs. Bush focus her laser tongue on Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins. Few in the Republican party have damaged conservatism, more than these two. Send them back to Maine, Barbara.
Or how about suggesting loudly what we all knew but no one would say: Barack Obama is a socialist at best, a communist at worst (almost “worst) – ‘please stay home in Chicago.’ Or how about telling John McCain his candidacy would be devastating to this country – so, ‘John, I hope you stay home in Arizona.’ Shame on Barbara Bush.
