It's stupid, this is a man with a shitload of money, why would he sacrifice his son to get this done? Why not use someone else? If i want to kill you, ill kill you - not do it in a way which ruins my son's life. That's totally illogical.

You have to admit, some of the coincidences are eerie. Bush did run the CIA so I wouldn't be surprised if he was involved.

Prescott Bush was part of a coup attempt right around WW2 so it wouldn't be too shocking if GDub would try to pull something similar.

Fvck the Bush family.

H.W Bush: coat tail rider. He wouldn't be shit without the GOAT Reagan.


W. Bush: tied with Carter as the worst president of all-time.

Jeb Bush: RINO.

that isnt necessarily true at all. He ran against Reagan in 1980. Its not like he was unknown. Hell, it could be argued Reagan doesn't win vs Carter without him. He was important in keeping the centrist wing of the Republicans as well as getting Independents and Blue Dog Dems.

Reagan taking Bush also helped the Repubs look more organized and willing to hash out differences vs the Dems where Ted Kennedy refused to drop out of the Dem nomination race vs Carter even though Carter had 60% of the Dem delegates.

The most underrated conspiracy is the one by Kuwaiti intelligence to fake an attempt on H. W. Bush's life that was designed to fail and designed to look like Saddam was behind it.

Agreed. This isn't talked about enough. Bush lost to Reagan in the primaries, then was essentially forced to make him the VP candidate.

Then, RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING of Reagan's first term, assassination attempt. The fact there is almost a direct connection (or one degree of separation) between Bush and the killer is beyond eerie, and the media never talked about it.
