Promise Makers not Keepers

"Read my lips. No new taxes." Vice President George H. Bush pledged in 1988 not to raise taxes if he were elected President. Bush 41 was elected and America saw a tax increase sign by him.

President George W. Bush promise to appoint strict constructionists justices in the mold of Clarence Thomas or Antonin Scalia during is campaign. Bush 43 seem to be back stepping on his word and is testing the waters for a less than conservative judge.

Is father like son? That’s the question I find myself asking. If President George W. Bush screw over conservatives like his father did then Jeb Bush the son and brother of Promise Makers not Keepers hopes and wishes to one day run for the Nation’s highest office will be set in cold stone in the hearts of millions of Americans. NO MORE BUSH’S

Is so easy to make a promise you have no intention of keeping or will to keep. I am tired of so-conservative Republicans politicians who boast their conservatism during their campaign for an election to stab the people who put them in office in the back. These back stabbing politicians have no conviction of their own, just a wish or desire for high office.

President Ronald Reagan was a great President because he was a President of Promises kept. Unlike most politicians today, what Reagan said is what Reagan did. It is a shame that George H. Bush didn’t learn this virtue from his friend Ronald Reagan during their 8 years in office together. Now we are all wondering if Bush 43 is a man of his word like President Ronald Reagan or a man not of his word like his father. And I wonder if Bush 43 will turn to making excuses like his father to he couldn’t keep his word.

I hope President George W. Bush will keep his word and work to restore is family’s name and not disgrace and dishonor it farther. A man’s word is only as good as his family’s name and a family’s name is only as good as their word.
