What are you more afraid of, another round of quantitative easing (QE3), or another round of phony conservatives back in the WhiteHouse again (George W3)? Are you more concerned about putting billions of dollars of more phony money on the streets, or the prospect of putting hundreds of more phony conservatives back in power in Washington D.C. again? What presents a bigger threat to America’s future? Is it printing more money out of thin air, or nominating another RINO Republican to run for President, like George W. Bush’s phony conservative brother,who is the Governor of Florida? Should Jeb Bush run for President in 2016? What do you think?
We don’t really have to wait for 2016 in order to find out if Jeb Bush wants to run. He does! What’s worse is that we don’t even have to wait for Jeb Bush to run in 2016, in order to be faced with the prospect of having another phony conservative run for the Republican Party’s nomination for President! We are already faced with that same scenario right now, in 2012! Furthermore, Jeb Bush actually flirted with the possibility of running for the nomination in 2012, so if current aspirations are a good a predictor of future behavior, then we already know that Jeb Bush wants to run in 2016 if the opportunity arises. 'A.R.A.B.' stands for: Any Republican but Another Bush!
But we can’t afford to focus our attention on Jeb Bush right now, because there are plenty of other RINOs Running, and many progressive Republican Want-To-'Bees' just waiting in the wings to run! There is Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, John Huntsman, and possibly Donald Trump, to name just a few. There is also Chris Christie, Mike Pence, and Paul Ryan. None of these Republicans are really conservative by any stretch of the imagination. Their conservative bona fides are all a bit questionable! So why do I mention Congressmen Paul Ryan’s name? You probably thought that he was a real conservative. While Congressman Ryan talked real tough about balancing the Federal Budget, reducing the deficit, and cutting spending, actually when push came to shove, his Deficit Reduction Bill of 2011, which promised to cut between 30 billion and 60 billion dollars from the Federal Budget, actually cut only about 300 million dollars for the current fiscal year! All of his tough talk was merely a lot of salesmanship and mathematical gymnastics! In other words, Paul Ryan sold us a ‘bill of goods’! He also voted along with the entire Republican Party Establishment to raise the Federal Debt Ceiling by another 1.3 trillion dollars! So, in addition to selling us a ‘bill of goods’, Paul Ryan sold our children down the proverbial river too! With these two votes on the Budget Control Act of 2011, and the Debt Control Act of 2011, i.e. the ‘Bonehead Boehner Bill’ all of the RINO Republicans in Congress put America’s future on a not-so-slow boat to China! That’s why I mentioned Congressman Paul Ryan’s name here in this list of phony conservatives just waiting in the wings! A couple of months ago when Donald Trump was verbally attacking Congressman Paul Ryan, and telling him to sit down and shut up, it was actually two RINO Republicans attacking each other, and both of them were just vying for public attention in different ways!
