Just what we need. A politician turned lobyist turned politician. The wheels on the bus go round and round.


Not to mention the fact that he worked for and supported this moron.


Really? GWB's campaign manager? The republicans are a bankrupt party. This election may bring some cheer for them but after that, they are on the road to extinction. I hope that something better takes their place. I used to be strongly in favor of the two-party system.


Until people realize the two party system is a heads they win tails you loose system nothing will change. It will continue to result in bigger government, more debt, a devalued currency, and a usurpation of the United States Constitution. Now lets go get ISIS.
