    "Most disastrous dynasty"?  It's not fair to tar the elder Bush with the Dubya brush. He consulted fully with congress on his war, declined to make it a big loyalty test, brought it to a conclusion when its (reasonable) goals were fulfilled, and instituted tax hikes that gave Clinton a leg up in balancing the budget. He has more credibility with me than any other Republican on the current scene, and I class him as the fourth best Republican president of the century, after TR, Eisenhower, and Clinton. I can't imagine who else in the party would be better for the few remaining sane GOPers to consult.

    The only seriously disastrous thing George H W ever did was to inflict his offspring on the world.

    Oh, wait.  You're right. That more than outweighs everything else in his legacy.
