I think the Bush family has a stranglehold on our country ...
How's that exactly? Obama has had the white house for the last four years and is going to have it four more. It's a democratic administration. The SCOTUS supported Obamacare. NONE of the Bush family is holding any office at all and they haven't for a while now. So how exactly does the Bush family have a stranglehold on our country?

Wasn't Jeb the guy that got caught screwing with the vote count? That doesn't sound like a very trustworthy dude if it's the same guy I am thinking of.

Jeb never called for martial law in Florida, and there never was martial law in Florida even after 9/11. There was some lockdown on the military bases, but that is to be expected. Jeb was a very popular Florida Governor, even after the scandal with his daughters, and even during his brother's disputed presidency.
“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”
“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”
"I hereby delegate to The Adjutant General of the State of Florida all necessary authority, within approved budgetary appropriations or grants, to order members of the Florida National Guard into active service, as defined by Section 250.27, Florida Statutes, for the purpose of training to support law-enforcement personnel and emergency-management personnel in the event of civil disturbances or natural disasters and to provide training support to law-enforcement personnel and community-based organizations relating to counter drug operations. This Executive Order shall remain in full force and effect until the earlier of its revocation or June 30, 2003." This Florida EO places the Florida National Guard [which is not a lawful militia], a unit of the Federal U.S. Army, in control of all Florida law enforcement [State FDLE, County Sheriffs, and local PD's] and the Florida Emergency Management Agency [Florida's FEMA under federal FEMA control]. This took place four days before the World Trade Center disaster.
On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, Pres. "G.W." Bush was in a Sarasota, Florida classroom reading a story about a pet goat when his Chief of Staff whispered in his ear about the WTC "terrorism". Rather than attend to this national disaster, "G.W." continues to read the goat story to these second grade children and then, 30 minutes later, makes a brief statement to the press. More about this odd behavior can be read at The Obscure Goat Story.
Governor "Jeb" then signed Florida Executive Order No. 01-262 immediately after the second WTC tower fell. Florida was the first STATE to declare a "State of Emergency" and did so before New York State or the Federal Washington City leaders did, yet there were no "terroristic" incidents that had taken place. Florida EO 01-262 states, in part :
"I hereby declare that a state of emergency exists in the State of Florida... The authority to suspend the effect of any statute or rule governing the conduct of state business, and the further authority to suspend the effect of any order or rule of any governmental entity... The authority to seize and utilize any and all real or personal property as needed to meet this emergency... The authority to order the evacuation of any or all persons from any location in the State of Florida, and the authority to regulate the movement of any or all persons to or from any location in the State; The authority to regulate the return of the evacuees to their home communities... I hereby order the Adjutant General to activate the Florida National Guard for the duration of this emergency."
There is no declared expiration of this Florida Executive Order. In case you haven't figured it out yet, Florida is now under martial law and will remain so until this EO is revoked. We tried to warn the people of Florida about this in 1998 when our State Constitution was changed in order to allow this to take place.

It means his Mother was born in Mexico.....
Moreover it means that he's going to have a shot at capturing a much wider demographic than this cycles POTUS and VP candidates were capable of.

Oh jeesh. Look out for this one. He's better looking that his predecessors, but I'm fairly certain the mentality is EXACTLY the same.
Then we have his black sheep sister Nicole, busted a few years ago for trying to pass a forged prescription for Xanax in an all-night Miami pharmacy because she was coming down from a coc aine binge and couldn't cope:
This one will take Texas if he wants it, because of the heavy hispanic population who will vote for anybody who promises them freedom of immigration, amnesty, jobs, whatever.
Same rich family, same sense of entitlement and the same idea of putting their boys through law school in order to catapult them into public office.
I cannot say anything nice about this family. It's just not in my nature to lie.
11:22AM EST November 9. 2012 - It looks the first of a new generation of Bushes is preparing to run for office.
George P. Bush, the son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush but now a resident of Texas, has filed a campaign treasurer appointment, a requirement for running for office in the Lone Star State.
Bush, 36, did not specify which office he might seek.
The younger Bush, a Fort Worth resident, is the nephew of former President George W. Bush, and the grandson of former President George H.W. Bush.
