A Sentimental Father

The senior Bush, the one who fought the first Gulf War but stopped the troops from going into Baghdad thus setting up his son for the sequel, was heard on the radio lamenting how it was harder to hear the Democrats bashing his son than himself. It was all warm and fuzzy fatherly stuff, but surely he did not expect his son to run for the presidency of the United States on behalf of Republican Party and be left alone by the other party. This "oh-my-poor-son-has-done-the-best-he-could-and-everybody-ought-to-be-nice-to-a-sitting-president" stuff is so Bush-like and intellectually lazy. Apparently some people go for that kind of cheap sentimentality, and that is why the family members get elected repeatedly.
