Watching the Bush’s walk into the Chinese Olympic stadium reminded me of all the Bush family financial ties with China since the 70’s.
HW Bush’s time as Ambassador to china in 1974 helped open this closed country to Bush family financial investments. These investments and other lucrative ventures continued after 41 became Veep and then Pres.
with uncle buck and brother neil in mind, the current press bush never had much doubt about whether he would go to these opening ceremonies. Was a foregone conclusion. Was a chance to bring the family together to count their dividend checks, say thanks and make plans for 43’s post presidency.
Makes W’s human rights speech yesterday all the more quaint, w/ wink and nod.
