The new Bush candidate, George P. Bush, Jeb's kid

by Ziks511 / November 26, 2012 / 6:32 AM UTC

he's half Hispanic, speaks fluent Spanish, and served in the Navy on station off the coast of Iran during part of the Afghan war. Then again, the article in Slate magazines web site says he served "in" Afghanistan.

Am I overly nit-picky when I point out that Afghanistan has no coastline? or is the author Geographically Challenged?

GP wants to be Texas Land Commissioner as his first step into politics. Well, I suppose the good news is that he's Jeb's kid and is thus unlikely to suffer from genetic impairment.

In that case he'd be Canadian

That would make him ineligible, since he wasn't born in the USA. I'm surprised you missed that. Wink

Not really, the child of two Americans in a foreign country

isn't a citizen of the US. The paperwork is already filled out in the Embassy in Ottawa. 2 Citizens produce a citizen.

Since you didn't post a link to the Slate article....
by Josh K / November 26, 2012 / 6:59 AM UTC

.....I'll have to guess that the writer or editor didn't know that the Navy would only be "in" Afghanistan by way of aircraft flying over the country. I'm sure it's just an editorial mistake.

As far as genetics goes, I've said before that if the Bush family was the Corleones, Jeb would be Michael, W would be Fredo and Neil would be Sonny.

If that was true

then it begs the question of why Obama is still around? You are both so full of it, you can only see the crap that squeezes out past your eyeballs.

For that matter Josh,I think we could cast Axelrod as the ..

traitor,Frankie Pentangeli,he even looks like him Happy

I can see it now,Tom Hagen(played by Judge Andrew Napolitano)visits Axelrod in prison and talks him into committing suicide. Grin
Hold on now,I'm on a roll... We could make Kerry play the part of "Carlo",who is married to Michael's loud mouth sister(Theresa Heinz).
Carlo gets into the front seat of the '49 Plymouth at the Corleone estate and Fat Clemenza(played by 'Round Boy') wraps piano wire around his neck while saying "Hello Carlo". Bwahahaha !!

Hey, I wasn't belittling his service, or even saying he
by Ziks511 / November 27, 2012 / 12:19 AM UTC

wasn't there. I was just pointing out that it's hard to find a beach in Afghanistan, at least a salt water one. Sand you can find.

The hell you weren't
by TONI H / November 27, 2012 / 3:47 AM UTC

You hinted that the kid lied about his service record, just as you have posted previously that his uncle did, and took to insulting the author instead.........and you're still doing it within the newest post. This is the kind of crap that BO pulled regarding Romney........it started before Romney was even the nominee and never let up. You've decided to start early as well.......why? because he's a BUSH and a Republican. Spread a lie early and long enough and people will believe it, right?

He hinted at no such thing

He questioned the accuracy of the writing in the article, not the subject's service record.

>>>says he served "in" Afghanistan.

The 'hint' was that either the subject of the story lied about serving "IN" Afghanistan since there is no way any SAILOR could serve IN a country with no coastline (so YES, he DID question the subject's service record)........."OR" the author is mentally deficient.

I've read it numerous times
by TONI H / November 27, 2012 / 8:12 AM UTC

and it still comes out the same.......either the subject lied saying he served "IN" Afghanistan because he couldn't possibly have done that since there is no coastline 'or' the author is a mental defect. Which indicates that Rob was questioning the subject's service record (just as he did with Bush 43) AND/OR the author. If he was only questioning the author, he would have said so.....he didn't.
