Posted on 02/11/2014 2:45:42 PM PST by jimbo123
The fourth-generation heir to the Bush political dynasty, groomed for office since his childhood, is coming of age and building a political network.

The 36-year-old son of Jeb Bush and nephew of W. is Hispanic -- his mother, Columba, is from Mexico -- with brown skin, thick black hair, and a toothy, gleaming smile. He's a lawyer, a Navy vet who served in Afghanistan, and a political fundraiser who works to expand the Republican Party's outreach to Latinos and young people. Chatty without being overly polished, he lives in Fort Worth with his wife, whom he met in law school at the University of Texas, and runs half marathons in his spare time. It's as if the ruling class kept pumping out new, less WASPy, more modern products to keep up with changing demand.
Bush has been touted as a political prospect practically since he was old enough to walk. At 12, he spoke at his grandfather's first nominating convention; at 24, he recorded TV commercials for his uncle's 2000 campaign. ("I have an uncle who is running for president because he believes in ... opportunity for every American, for every Latino," he said in the ad. "His name? The same as mine, George Bush.") Of George H.W. Bush's 17 grandchildren, he once boasted of being the favorite.

George Pee Bush is going nowhere.
Actually, ever since he was old enough to pee. That's why he is known as Pee.
Tell him there’s room in the democrat party.
And take his whole family with him.
“George Pee Bush is going nowhere.”
He is running for Texas Land Commissioner and will likely win.
since 98% of Texas is privately held, what does he do? I know the last one walked around and showed everyone his guns.
