Bush?

Well, some of you may be thinking that Little Bush is like Big Bush, but let's take a closer look at Great Big Bush.

LOL, This is what I like, "After graduation, Prescott Bush served as a field artillery captain with the American Expeditionary Forces (1917-1919) during World War I. He received intelligence training at Verdun, France, and was briefly assigned to a staff of French officers. Alternating between intelligence and artillery, Captain Bush came under fire in the Meuse-Argonne offensive. Controversially, Prescott Bush wrote home about receiving medals for heroic exploits. His letters were later published in Columbus newspapers, but were retracted a few weeks later when it was revealed that he, in fact, had not received such medals."

Some of my favorite tidbits...

Bush was born in Columbus, Ohio to Flora Sheldon and Samuel Prescott Bush, a steel company president and later a federal government official in charge of coordination and assistance to major weapons contractors during World War I.

Hmm. Steel Companies (which Kennedy said was screwing us like the Oil companies are now - oh wait, I guess his family moved to Oil). In charge of major weapons contractors.... what a shocker.

where his business efforts generally failed

now we know where he got THAT from

"We must maintain strong defenses, military and spiritual," he said. "It is our conduct, our patriotism and belief in our American way of life, our courage that will win the final battle."

And they haven't stopped using that speech since.

early financial backer of the Nazi party

would explain his current policies

The assets were held by the government for the duration of the war, then returned afterward. UBC was dissolved in 1951. Bush's interest in UBC consisted of one share. For it, he was reimbursed $1,500,000. These assets were later used to launch Bush family investments in the Texas energy industry.

So Bush's oil money started with Nazi Germany money

Allegations that Prescott Bush profited from slave labor or the Auschwitz concentration camp remain unsubstantiated.

There are unsubstantiated rumors concerning Prescott Bush's associations with the Nazi party. The Anti-Defamation League has stated, "Rumors about the alleged Nazi 'ties' of the late Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, have circulated widely through the Internet in recent years. These charges are untenable and politically motivated." [1] The rumors began with extreme right-wing attacks on George H.W. Bush during his 1980 presidential run and were renewed during his 1988 run.

The great bit about this part is that it was the RIGHT-wing that was attacking him.

and then if you look at HIS father's page (Bush's great grandfather) and go down past all the Oil+Steel industry stuff, you see them talking about how HE was viewed:

evil arms dealers ("Merchants of Death") who caused wars, underplaying the social, intellectual, political, and cultural currents of the 1930s

So looks like Bush's family has been antipatriotic for over 76 years. not too surprising.
