Skil, dealing with Nazis in the 30's like dealing with Facists in the 30's (or much later in the case of Spain and Portugal), was not treasonous.

It was only after December 11, 1941 when Germany declared war.

It wasn't 'good' -- for sure, but not treasonous.

Others in the US 'dealt' with the Nazis. For that matter, a stalwart anti-fascist such as Churchill -- wasn't all that anti-fascist -- look at his correspondence with Mussolini in the 30's and up to Italy attacking France in May 1940.

The Bush name is tainted no matter what you say. Dealing with Nazis is always treasonous. It's one thing to trade with them when it was legal. Grandad Bush found it lucrative to deal with them even after a US ban on trade with the 3rd reich was institute. Thats a heartwarming tale if their ever was one. Nobody wants to talk about where the Bush's made their money. Now you know

Skil, you should know better:
Prescott Bush's Alleged Nazi "Ties"
Tuesday, December 16, 2003

Rumors about the alleged Nazi "ties" of the late Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, have circulated widely through the Internet in recent years. These charges are untenable and politically motivated.

Despite some early financial dealings between Prescott Bush and a Nazi industrialist named Fritz Thyssen (who was arrested by the Nazi regime in 1938 and imprisoned during the war), Prescott Bush was neither a Nazi nor a Nazi sympathizer.
