Two Major Party Dynasties Are Under Attack As Never Before

The Bush and Clinton dynasties seem to be grinding to an end. You can tell that it is happening by all the wailing and flailing that are coming from the two camps. It is apparent that they are trying to resist, but it will not stop their fall. Donna Brazile’s book has opened the floodgates into the wicked world of Hillary, while the Bush families try to take out President Trump. It is their last gasps for relevancy. Read more here.

Republicans (and more than a few liberals) have begun to miss the virtues of both Presidents Bush after prolonged exposure to Trump’s vices.

Nevertheless, the underlying political conditions in both parties appear to be moving against the Bushes and Clintons. Look no further than Virginia, where no less of a Bush Republican than Ed ……
