I think the Bushies want to lose the 2008 presidential election.
Edited on Sat Dec-08-07 04:03 PM by Bleachers7
I feel like the Bushies are looking to lose this election. That's why they're pushing left leaning nobody's like Romney and Guiliani. I think they want to lose 2008 and run Jeb in 2012. If a guy like Huckabee runs and wins, they'll be out of the white house until at least 2016. I also think they might want to run Jeb for VP. Romney and Guiliani would be more willing to select him than Huckabee.

Anyway, that's my conspiracy theory for the day. What do you think?

:tinfoilhat::tinfoilhat::tinfoilhat:

EDIT: And to take it one step further... Huckabee might be more willing to prosecute Bushco.

3. This coming from the guy that said Huckabee had no chance.
I think your opinion goes with your credibility, and you've got none.

6. No chance--fatal flaws. Talk to me when he's Preznit, and I'll say I have no credibility.
But your post is still the dumbest...post...EVER! As if Huckabee isn't trying to ingratiate himself with anyone who will pay attention to him--he would LOOOVE the Bushies' support, if he could get it. Huck's proven that he'll jump to the RW master's call when he set Dumond free at the sound of the Freeper dog-whistle--he'll do anything to get people to like him. He'll no sooner prosecute the Bush family than I will vote Republican in 2008. I do believe the Republican party will shut him down--because he's a lightweight lunatic and will have his ass handed to him on a platter.

7. His biggest problem (non issue based) is that he's a lightweight in the party
Edited on Sat Dec-08-07 04:16 PM by Bleachers7
I do have doubts that he'll be able to overcome that. It depends on if he can galvanize evangelicals. There was something posted last week saying that Falwell's son likes him. His support has skyrocketed since then. I don't attribute one directly to the other, but it helps.

I think another part of the reason that he's taking off is that the other candidates are just terrible. As for you, you've got a track record of being wrong on Huckabee, so I don't think you're one to judge.

4. That sounds really possible. While they're at it, the BFEE is also grooming
George P Bush (Jeb's son) to succeed Jeb.

5. Yup, this is no secret.
I've heard all the BS about how P. is better than W. or H.W. He's the next in line after Jeb.

8. Well, they did loot the public treasury...
Edited on Sat Dec-08-07 04:38 PM by liberalmuse
worse than they did in the '80's, and they raped the land for as much natural resources as they could get away with. They've put policies and laws in place that will have them raking in the dough for years to come at everyone else's expense, and when the 'pubs get down to their last personal 10 million, they'll steal another presidency, "Pigs at the Trough, Part III", and start looting the treasury, raping the land, killing darker skinned peoples and fucking the poor worse than they ever did before. That's the way these vile scumbags operate.

9. I doubt it. It was supposed to be a 25 year rule. They never thought
Americans would punch through the myths to the truth. America did. Now the neocons run around trying to detach their actual actions from the results of those actions.
