Compare and contrast

Political "dynasties" suck.

And let us look at the alleged dynasties.

George kids.

For a democracy great strategy.

John Adams and John Quincy Adams...sort of the original Bushs only with some real accomplishments outside of the office.

Thomas Jefferson...well, let us just say...ineligible then.

The not count, they were actually distant cousins, which is why Eleanor (who was TR's niece) could marry Franklin (fifth or sixth cousins).

The Kennedys well, let's face it, they've been rendered ineligible via Second Amendment and it's exercise (abuse).

So why do we keep getting's not like the first two have been awesome?

Because they're political poontang sniffers.

They can't help it. Their family motto is, "public service for private gain." And they really do think of themselves as American aristocrats, that high office is an entitlement due them.

Don't forget those wacky Harrisons. Plus, the Tafts wanted to be a dynasty, but no one in their right mind would let Bob near nuclear weapons.
