George Prescott Bush on Saturday discussed the possibility of launching his own political career in an interview with EL UNIVERSAL and spoke of the importance of Latin culture in the U.S.
Bush said he was undecided on whether he would try to be the third U.S. president from his family.
"In politics, you have to make a lot of sacrifices, and forget your personal interests," he said. "I like sports and travel. I think I will dedicate myself to those areas."
Bush is the son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. His mother, Columba Garnica Gallo is from Leon, Guanajuato.
He said that some critics of the growing Latin influence north of the border who claim it is corrupting traditional U.S values are mistaken.
"Latin culture has changed the face of the United States," Bush said. "According to statistics, there will be more Hispanics than any other minority by 2025."
He added the Spanish language will continue to be important there, and could become essential in the future.
Bush, who is a lawyer, said he still speaks Spanish with his mother, but speaks in English with his father. He added that if and when he has children, he will teach them Spanish.
You do that, George P.
Only if we let it.
Apparently Latin culture didn't do much for Latin countries like Mexico --- if this guy wants to be president, maybe he could do that in Mexico and promote their ways over there. He seems to forget why his ancestors abandoned that place.
Two Iranian friends saw each other on a Miami street. One greeted the other in Farsi.
"No, no," said the other. "You're in America now. Speak Spanish!"
I read an article this a.m. (don´t remember when it was posted, but it had been posted within the last 24 hours) that little Pee was born in Mexico. And contrary to popular belief, his Spanish is not that great...and I´m being kind.
"This is are land"
Make your time.
Latin culture is so wonderful - yet George P. lives in which country?
He hasn't come across too good in these recent articles.
