FATHER... (President G. H. W. Bush):
"If we have some of these wild Democrats in charge of these committees, it will be a ghastly thing for our country. I would hate to think what Arlen's (Specter) life would be like, what Rick's (Santorum) life would be like, and my son's life would be like if we lose control of the Congress" - Philadelphia. October 5th 2006.
AND SON (President G. W. Bush):
"He shouldn't be speculating like this because... he should have called me ahead of time and I'd tell him they're not going to..." - Washington. October 22nd 2006.
"He is the wrong father to appeal to for advice. The wrong father to go to, to appeal to in terms of strength. There's a higher Father that I appeal to..." - Washington. 2003 [Taped conversation with Bob Woodward. Quoted in "Plan of Attack"]
So dear readers... Here they are. To conflate and tweak a couple of song titles by Cat Stevens and Paul Simon - it's the ultimate "Father And Son Disunion". Grandpop Prescott must be very proud of his spawn...
What are to make of this pair? And what speech or thought balloons would you attribute to this photo. Or perhaps a caption.
(Notwithstanding the trend in recent caption contest entries - perhaps think more 'Freud' than 'Fart'!)
Here are a couple just to get you going...
• Dislike Father. Dislike Son!
• "Relationship George" with "Independent George"
Now - go for it!
