    Pretty easy to see Bush Sr spent his entire political career in Texas before his VP nomination and move to DC. And when he wasn't in politics he was in the oil or finance business.

    George H. W. Bush - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    After graduating from Yale, Bush moved his family to West Texas. His father's business connections proved useful when he ventured into the oil business

    Bush served as Chairman of the Republican Party for Harris County, Texas in 1964, but wanted to be more involved in policy making, so he set his stakes high: he aimed for a US Senate seat from Texas.


    Bush did not give up on elective politics and was elected in 1966 to a House of Representatives seat from the 7th District of Texas, defeating Democrat Frank Briscoe with 57% of the vote;[15] he became the first Republican to represent Houston.


    After a Democratic administration took power in 1977, Bush became chairman on the Executive Committee of the First International Bank in Houston.[26] He later spent a year as a part-time professor of Administrative Science at Rice University

    Except for gibberish, where are all out liberal friends? Don't they have anything to add?

    Keyes?

    No, he couldn't even beat Obama...AND...when he was losing the races in 2000 he started blaming it on "racism", so to hell with him.

    She is accepted by many because most of the negativity was about nothing.

    She removed herself because of the ethics complaints that had been filed against her, which were costing her and the state a lot of money. The Anchorage Press said it was mostly salaries that were already paid that she was yapping about, but I'd think some of it was her out of pocket expenses.

    Why? You got a problem with a white woman and a black man running on the same ticket?

    Says you.

    Also, if someone is so ineffectual, they're ignored.
    The press and Lefties are all over her like a pig on ****, they're been out to destroy her... which tells me she's a very serious threat.
    Yes, a threat to the office of the President because she is dumbing down politics to rally the lowest common denominator.

    Thank you for this, I was worried there wasn't going to be enough race-baiting in the next electoral cycle.

    How would Obama react if his girls were talked about by Letterman the way Palin's were? I'd say there'd be hell to pay.

    Obama isn't as good of an orator as he used to be. He's losing it. He was a master-campaigner because nobody challenged him, or found ways to pick on everything possible.

    Watch the clips of him trumping for Coakley. Pretty sorry stuff. He tried to make fun of Brown, but didn't know his record, and his truck comment wasn't funny. He's losing it. I'd say he's getting flustered. Life isn't as easy as it was in the Senate. Tsk! Tsk!

    After Obama's record, anybody might look better.

    It was sarcasm and no, I didn't expect you to get it.
