26. I'm pretty sure I read here at DU that W is not supporting Trump.

I also think I read that he is both supporting and voting for Hillary.

11. Poppy Bush was always a moderate Republican

at heart, who intitially criticized St. Ronnie's 'voodoo economics', and who was challenged from the right by Pat Buchanan, raised taxes, favored a safety net, etc.

It is rumored that the Bush women are pro-choice, pro-gay rights, etc and may even be Dems. In an interview a few months ago Laura Bush criticized Trump and (may have) implied that she would support Hillary.

12. At least Clinton isn't soiled by an endorsement from Bush the Lesser.

 

Which would likely really piss her off

13. This Could Be First Major Shot in Republican Civil War

if it leads to an Avalanche of Republican endorsements of Clinton

If they lose this election it very well could lead to a irrevocable split in the Party

16. Fossil fuel or snake oil


This news is snake oil for the slippery slope in essence designed for those emotions portrayed daily on television. Carl Jung uses the term Godhead; we can infer that to or relate those embedded individual conservative control freaks that side line then ambushes the electorate psyche to collect the vote.

Some missed that phycology class called bate, and switch. Herbert Walker with his archetypes are posed to cease the moment. Making it appear as synchronicity again as Jung describes as what is called a meaningful coincidence to turn voters. Yet actually a hackneyed initiative lacking significance having been over used; unoriginal and trite. Herbert Walker is what the French call a bricoleur, loanword, likely another big bank deal is on the way. Herbert Walker does not show up for free.

20. Trump is a danger that goes beyond the old left/right divide

 

Any republican or conservative that comes out against Trump should be applauded. The old partisan hatreds/feuds need to be put aside in the face of Trump and what he represents.
