MIA - Bush - Cheney

Although President G.W. Bush gave a satellite speech to the Republican Convention that is about the only time he was mentioned by name. Even his acceptance speech Senator McCain does not utter the name President George W. Bush but rather refers to him in this way " I'm grateful to the president for leading us in those dark days following the worst attack on American soil in our history, and keeping us safe from another attack many thought was inevitable; and to the first lady, Laura Bush, a model of grace and kindness in public and in private. And I'm grateful to the 41st president and his bride of 63 years, and for their outstanding example of honorable service to our country. " Notice that he refers to Laura Bush by name, I guess her name isn't as toxic to the Republican Party as G.W.Bush.

The Republican brand name is so soiled by the last eight years of the Republican Bush Cheney Administration that you couldn't even find the word Republican or the symbol GOP in their Convention. Senator McCain wants Americans to forget that he is a dyed in the wool Republican who supported 90 % of the agenda that the Bush Administration wanted Congress to Pass. Yet, now, he wants us to forget he is a REPUBLICAN and instead would rather us think of him as a "Maverick". Yes, McCain is a Maverick, he opposed the Martin Luther King Holiday, he supported the invasion of a Sovereign Nation that did not threaten the United States and he once said that our commitment to the occupation of Iraq could last for 100 years for all he cared.

Then there is Vice President Cheney, who goes all the way back in the Republican Party to the Nixon White House, yet not one mention of The Vice President throughout the entire convention. Not a thank you for your service, not a video tribute not even a gold watch. The Republicans are so afraid of being associated with Dick Cheney that he wasn't even invited to the Party of his own Party.

John McCain and Sarah Palin don't even want us to remember that they are REPUBLICANS, are they ashamed of something?
