    dang!

    what a nuisance these lawyers are for asking such questions, and newspapers for printing that stuff, even if 6 months late...;)

    the guy had no clue what they were paying him for, nor why, but he sure knew how to have fun, though :D

    wonder if gwb says a prayer for him at night ;)

    It was prohibition illegal alcohol profits that made the Kennedy family wealthy. At least the Bush family made their money legally.

    Not to mention how the whole incident involving PT 109 was JFK's fault because he was direlct of duty, but that's besides the point.

    Why does it matter what his brother does? I remember when stuff came out about Roger Clinton people were complaining about the press and how they were being unfair to him and to Slick Willy. If it's ok to pick on Neil Bush why wasn't it ok to pick on Roger?

    Yea, but the Kennedy family is like 5 times the size of the Bush family and has half the scandals. Also, the scale is smaller. 1 billion to tax payers after S&L conllapse? Iran Contra/American hostages being freed only after Bush is sworn in-current kill Iraqis for oil contracts Chaney- steal presidency with brothers help in Florida, Eron, energy crisis, etc. Kennedy's had some sex going on and you'd have to leave the immediate family to get any real skeletons.

    LOL, that's a great line.

    You do realize that Reagan was President at the time and Bush Sr. was merely the veep. Bush wasn't the one who brokered any deals.

    You do realize that JFK was the first President to send troops to Vietnam right.

    This is SO OLD. The laws were followed, you may not like it but they were.

    What do these have to do with the Bush family? NOTHING...

    Enron had been brewing since the mid '90s. Was Bush President then?? Nope.

    The energy crisis didn't happen over night, was Bush president when it started? Nope

    You're GRASPING at straws.

    Leave the immediate family? You must have forgotten about Joe Kennedy's dealings during prohibition, JFK's derelict of duty that resulted in the PT 109 incident. You must not have known how Joe Kennedy bought the entire first run of JFK's book, which in turn made it an instant best seller.

    You must have also forgotten about Teddy Kennedy and Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick.

    How about Joseph Kennedy III's reckless driving that left that woman paralyzed. Or David Kennedy's death from a cocaine overdose. Or Michael L. Kennedy, who was accused of having an affair with his family's teenage babysitter.

    The point is that many families have their dark secrets. Next time make sure the ones you're trying to defend don't have so many.

    Bush family versus Kennedy family is a pointless comparison anyway. Both were sleazeballs.

    You seem to be confused. It's OK to pick on the Bush family because they are Republicans. It would only be mean-spirited to pick on them if they were Democrats.

    Hope that clears things up.

    You people are absolutely rediculous.


    Seriously, if you've never known someone or been someone to cheat on a girlfriend or a spouse than you can talk but seriously... get off your high horse.

    Actually, wdlove, one of gw's granddaddies was in cahoots with hitler and made a fortune selling Nazi Germany stuff that he wasn't supposed to. There has also been some questionable activities by both sr. and jr.

    Here's a Link to some of the more recent ties between the bush family and organized crime and other assorted misdeeds. It's not pretty and makes the Corleone family look lily white.

    What gw's bro did in bed is nothing in comparison to the hefty handouts he got solely for being the prez' brother. Along with his daddy's connections to the oil biz. Don't you think it's sort of funny that there has been a virtual blackout on news about sr? WHy is that I wonder? Maybe because he #1 isn't doing anything for the public good in the public eye and isn't doing anything that he wants revealed to the public. The bush family is very scary.

    Don't read much, eh? Lets look back at Harkin, Arbusto Energy, the Texas Rangers deal, Annan Kashyogi, being backed by neo-con run corporations for sweetheart deals. The Kennedy's did their deeds 60 years ago. The Bush family has no shame RIGHT NOW. Our culturally "historical amnesia" strikes again.

    Please supply your sources for your statement about JFK. And are you implying that Clinton was treated generously by the press? If so, could you tell me what color is the sky on your planet.

    When you read in history books that some of the old mainline capitalists made their first fortunes in shipping in the so-called "tea" trade, remember that what they were taking to China was opium which was forced on the Chinese by the British. So there's a great deal of truth to the old cliche that behind every great fortune is a crime.

    Yep. You do realize this Iraq war has been an absolute windfall of sweetheart deals to Bush donors, right?

    BZZT. Wrong. Katherine Harris - head of the Bush campaign in Florida) illegally disenfranchised over 55,000 votes (many were that of minorities). She is being sued over this.


    BZZT. WRONG.

    Ken Lay was a close friend of Dubya waaaay before the Enron crisis. And what did Bush do to help fix the situation? Nothing, and his new Energy bill makes it worse. Better, the investigations into this fleecing of the American people isn't going anywhere.

    As for the energy crisis, we're going to see an oil peak in 2015-2020, and it's the 1970s oil crisis all over again. This time, however, it'll be worldwide. What's he doing to support alternative energy (like he said he would)? Nothin'.

    Pfft. Defend a Kennedy's integrity? That's like trying to defend Microsoft as being a security success.

    I'm attacking Bush as a pResident who has given huge windfalls to corporations and screwed over the American public.

    Also, you should note that the Bush family fortune was gotten from trading with the Nazis. I believe someone has already posted on this. Caio!

    From Nazi Germany?

    Redefine "legal" first.

    The Kennedys have their sordid scandals, but they never worked for Hitler.
    Unfortunately, we can't say the same about our current President's family.

    Wow, really? How many other American families made their fortunes by committing treason in order to work for Nazis?
