I don't think there cousins, but they are related. Both of them are "Old Money" blue bloods.

Yep, what a choice America has.

Two blue blood Yale grads who were blood brothers in a secret fraternity.

At least Clinton had a couple strikes against him.

The common man had to love the 2000 election, a Senator's son against a President's son.

They do have 'kin blood lines' and are both skull n bones members--s/b's forsake all other intersts for the beloved skull and bones. Marriage, religion, etc.

You are an idiot. Nepotism has nothing to do with getting elected by a constituency, regardless if a family member held the position before.

What a dumbass. Use your dictionary.

You must be a complete moron if you believe the Bush familys clout in Washington isn't the only reason he GOT the chance to run in the first place. So its just by chance his Grandad was a senator, daddy was president, and his brother is a govenor? Give me a break!

Nepotism is when a family member *hires* another family member. Asinine is when a poster doesn't know what the fuck his talking about.

I do believe sons and daughters of the power elite have greater advantages than most people.

You have a better chance of going to college if your mother or father went to that college.
Plus your parents can train you in the ways to succeed. And extra money can always help in elections, just ask Kerry & Theresa.

Your own link shows that nepotism has nothing to do with getting elected, but yet you still insist it does.

You are insisting that it was GWB's family that got him elected to the governor's chair in Texas. Unless the Bush Family has a million or so registered voters in the state, you lose again. In fact, you lose either way, as being elected to a public office has nothing to do with a person in authority *hiring* or *promoting* another family member.

Same goes for President. GWB had to be elected by thousands of delegates nationwide. Then he had to be elected by the electorate at large throughout the country. Nepotism had nothing to do with it.

But don't take my word for it. Just follow the link you provided, it'll show you who the dumbass is.

I swear you must be retarded. I SAID HIS FAMILYS CLOUT GOT HIM THE CHANCE TO BE ELECTED. Is it pure chance his entire family is in politics?

You are the moron. If anything, GWB's dad's performance as president WORKED AGAINST his chances of being president. Family clout has got little or nothing to do with it. If GWB was as much of a dumbass as you are, family or no family, he wouldn't have gotten elected, or even gotten the CHANCE to be elected.

Voters weren't wooed by daddy. They weren't voting for daddy. They weren't bought off by daddy. This has been GWB's gig, not his father's.

Luck had little to do with it. Nepotism even less. Hard work, determination, and lots of money, yes. Nepotism, no.

You really need to look up the definition of "nepotism."

Your a joke and you also do not understand the definition of nepotism, even though you keep acusing me of the same thing. Do yourself a favor and go look it up, becuase you are WAY off base. Answer this question, is it just pure "Luck" that the Bush family has Presidents, Senators, and Govenors? Consider this an IQ test?

nepotism

nepotism was Word of the Day on April 8, 2001.


Source: Dictionary.com Word of the Day


nepotism

\Nep"o*tism\ (?; 277), n. [L. nepus, nepotus, nephew: cf. F. n['e]potisme. See Nephew.] Undue attachment to relations; favoritism shown to members of one's family; bestowal of patronage in consideration of relationship, rather than of merit or of legal claim.

From nepotism Alexander V. was safe; for he was without kindred or relatives. But there was another perhaps more fatal nepotism, which turned the tide of popularity against him -- the nepotism of his order. --Milman.

Nepotism is when a person in authority hires, patronizes, or otherwise *promotes* a family member.

Unless George Bush Sr. hired his son to be governor and then president, it's not nepotism. It's not even luck, either.

Hard work, determination, and truckloads of money did it. Not daddy, not nepotism.
