[VIDEO] Terry McAuliffe: ‘Bush Family Should Be Thrown in Jail’

Note: I’ve seen Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story, and really enjoyed it. If you get a chance to catch it on Netflix, or via Amazon, or the public library, I recommend it.

Jim Swift writes:  A 2008 documentary reveals that Terry McAuliffe, who is being sworn in today as governor of Virginia, thinks that members of the Bush family “should all have been put away in jail.”

The documentary, Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story, features a clip of President George H.W. Bush’s 1989 Inaugural Address, where Bush discusses the need to “make kinder the face of the nation” with regard to “those who cannot free themselves of enslavement to whatever addiction—drugs, welfare, the demoralization that rules the slums.”

The film cuts from the inaugural footage to novelist Ishmael Reed, who thinks it’s hypocritical for Bush to talk about “demoralization” since his son, future President George W. Bush, had his own struggles with addiction. Then former DNC chairman Terry McAuliffe weighs in:

“These folks should all have been put away in jail. But you know what? Because of their power, and because George [H.W.] Bush went into office and he got to pick the attorney general, the U.S. attorneys, it all got hushed up. And George [W.] Bush—he’s now the president of the United States of America. Chief law enforcement officer!” McAuliffe then laughs.
