    Re: Your Favourite of the Bush-Family

    President Bush-41 has given me my best memories.
    1. My all-time favorite is "voodoo" economics.
    2. "Read my lips" is right up there--Bidenesque.
    3. Praying he would live every day with Dan Quayle waiting in the wings.
    4. Lee Atwater/Willie Horton.
    5. a thousand points of life--and a great foundation--which Bubba kept going but didn't get the UFO info from GHWB like Carter did.
    6. the Iran hostage connection--the old CIA director.
    7. The USA Flag guy.

    sure wish I could remember that secret government he formed in the 1950s-
    didn't realize how many were Bilderbergs--Kissinger, Colin Powell, Condi Rice-

    The 1996 Texas election against Ann Richards who coined the phrase "silver spoon".
    They both agreed to invoke the 7-year CIA rule about previous drug use .

    I'm familiar with the term but not its use then, aside from the obvious.

    to invoke the 7-year CIA rule
    What does that mean?

    Apparently their key component died during that time. Apparently Lee Atwater was running lots of Republican campaigns at the time. I think he was an extremely aggressive campaigner.

    Pretty ironic accusation coming from Mr. "Left-libertarians are just Democrats with a gun rack."
    That's actually pretty funny.
