The Houston Chronicle reports on the life and political history of George H. W. Bush, a single term Republican president. Many remember him dooming his second term presidential aspirations with this now famous 1988 statement: “Read my lips, no new taxes!” It was a pledge he reneged on amid looming budget deficits and fierce Democrat opposition.
Bush “41” was a two-term Vice President to President Ronald Reagan. During his own presidency, he made a positive impact on the U.S. Supreme Court when he appointed federal appeals court judge Clarence Thomas as an associate justice in 1991.
A World War II hero and patriarch of a political dynasty, he was the father of President George W. Bush and Florida Governor “Jeb” Bush, who lost his own bid for the presidency.
The George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation has his complete biography and his “official obituary.”

In all, there will be 2,500 participants in the parade, with an expected 45,000 spectators along the route.

The question is, who’s the actual candidate?
Cindy Hensley McCain is not letting any grass grow under her well shod feet. According to the Daily Courier, she appeared at an election eve Republican campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona — coincidentally at the same location where her now deceased husband, John, kicked off his presidential election bid. The Yavapai County Courthouse steps were initially used by former Senator Barry Goldwater to launch his presidential campaign in 1964. Although the territorial capitol moved several times, Yavapai County held that distinction twice.
SRAZ has covered Cindy’s reemergence in two separate posts.
Sept. 9, 2018: Supercharged Cindy Hensley McCain emerges
Oct. 25, 2018: The “Maverick” is not gone: The hustle goes on
In retrospect, an excerpt from the October article becomes even more intuitively intriguing. We wrote:
In September, when appointed as a senate place holder, former Arizona Senator Jon Kyl made clear his intention to leave in December 2018. This reemergence of Cindy McCain sounds a like a priming of the pump for Gov. Ducey to appoint her to finish out her hubby’s term. Cindy recently endorsed Ducey as he campaigns for a second term, but their relationship is much deeper than the political. When Ducey first arrived in Arizona to attend ASU, his first job was working for Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship. The Ducey’s have remained close to the McCain’s, even visiting John in his final days at the McCain’s Cornville compound. John McCain encouraged Ducey’s political career.
Clairvoyant predictions have been known to make the hair stand up on the nape of the neck. Few among us are telepathic, but astute conservatives should be excused for experiencing an eerie sense of foreboding.
