From such disaster might come sanity

Success - Article sent! close

Jeb Bush for president in 2016? You've got to be kidding. Haven't we suffered enough from 9/11, unnecessary wars, outsourcing American jobs, huge budget deficits, the "Great Recession," paying for NATO and Japan's defense and a constant drumroll to slash domestic spending as a result?

If we elect another Bush, maybe we can get Paul Ryan as VP to gut Medicaid and speed up our Medicare vouchers, John McCain as secretary of Defense to "bomb, bomb Iran" and Donald Trump as Treasury secretary to declare bankruptcy and privatize Social Security for his pals on Wall-Street? Hey, let's go all-the-way and let Rush Limbaugh tell us how to run the country from his perch atop right-wing radioland.

Maybe from such a disaster will come sanity and the end to Fox News fear-mongering, reactionary conspiracy theories, austerity for the middle class and military adventurism?
