stay out da bushes.
This George P guy should run on his military record. Young guy who came of age right around 9-11. Must surely have some time in Uniform.
Too bad he’s a Bush. Definitely looks Hispanic. DEFINITELY good looking—to those that care.
how about no family political dynasties whatsoever
those in these dynasties say they are just very “public service” minded
but my own view is that they don’t see themselves as doing anything better for themselves than what they might do banking on the family name
it is done in businesses and industries as well
I just don’t think its good for good government
It won't allow opposition from the Evangelicals, Liberatrians or TeaParty.
It is time to let them win elections without us.
None other than the CBC was already talking about a possible Jeb Bush run next on right in election night.
What about no more stupid articles?
Without it, limp wristing wins nothing, and the media, which is the actual rat party, the politicians being an extension therof, will eat them up whole.
“On the heels of Ronald Reagan, the GOP could have gotten a chef salad elected president in 1988.”
I disagree with the article on that point. The GOP brand was a little bruised in 88. Nothing like the toxic levels of 2008, but between the Savings and Loans scandals, questions about H.W.’s role (if any) in Iran-Contra, and some other issues, a GOP win was anything but certain in 88. Had the DNC run a southern Democrat (or pretty much anyone else but Mike “The Human Punching Bag” Dukakis), it would have been a close race, IMHO.
I agree, though, that H.W. moved away from Reagan’s principles on domestic policy at warp speed. He never really believed in them anyway, if one remembers the 1980 primaries.
I’d still take him in a heartbeat over Obama, of course.
So, you think it runs in his genes or something?
Why not examine what the guy actually thinks and believes?
Look at what he says and actually DOES.
It looks like he’s going for Texas office of some kind ... fine ... let’s see what he actually does in government before he’s rejected out of hand.
Looking at his educational path, it’s certainly different from the other Bushes ... Rice and the University of Texas Law School. Both are excellent programs, and not part of the Ivy League world and all the connections that brings. Who knows???
I’m willing to watch and wait and see what he says and does. If he gets into office and serves ably and holds solid positions and articulates a vision and agenda with which I — as a Conservative — can agree ... and if he serves at the National Level (House or Senate) and has a good Conservative Voting Record ... WHO KNOWS? Just because he’s a “Bush” doesn’t mean that, by 2024 or 2028 he won’t be a possible contender for the Presidency.
And, who knows, perhaps by 2024 the Democrats will have stopped claiming all their messes on GWB.
GOP elites -> rove -> bush -> obama 1.0 & obama 2.0
