CBS News ^ | July 22, 2013

Posted on 07/22/2013 11:10:24 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

...George P. Bush is running for state land commissioner, a post unfamiliar to most Texans, because he says it best suits his skills, not because it could launch him to bigger things in the largest Republican-leaning state.

"It's a legacy that I embrace and that I'm not going to run away from," Bush told The Associated Press.

Good. I hope he’s got more guts (for fighting Dems) than GWB. The whole “reach across the aisle” thing was what did in GWB, who honestly seemed to think until the very end that the Dems were going to reciprocate.

It will be interesting to see how he does.

Run for office in Mexico you rat. You are a bush and America cannot survive another of your progressive clan... and we are on to how much you hate Conservatives... the feeling is mutual.

Another pro-abort “conservative” whose only claims to fame are good looks and family connections—with a little Hispanic veneer to make him “diverse.” He’d make a great Kennedy.

I’m generally one to view and judge people as individuals, as opposed to where they came from. Blood guilt spent fly with me.

So I’ll judge this Bush on his own merits alone. But also in the context that having GOP candidates who can draw Hispanic voters into the GOP (leveraging common ground on things like social issues) is going to be essential in keeping Texas from going Blue in another 20 years.

This is the guy who went down to Mexico to campaign for W Bush...

You can bet the rent the Texas insiders, La Raza and those in D.C. will continue to flood the U.S. with illegals, then make them all legal... It's only a matter of time until these same people run this guy for POTUS, as part of the Bush dynasty..

He’s been shilling for amnesty for at least a decade. I can’t believe some FReepers are going to fall for another swindler.

It’s just the state land commissioner. By the time he’s ripe for a Presidential run, amnesty will be ancient history. Believe me... we’re going there. It’ll be a done deal, and we won’t be to blame for it.

If you ever read the novelist William Faulkner, you know about the Snopes family. THAT is the Bush family, 60 years earlier : )

The original Prescott Bush must have been a real gem to turn out two generations of this ilk. The next generation doesn’t deserve the blame yet, but who in their right mind would take a chance knowing who their leading advisers within the family would be.

It’s like a Kennedy going to Ted for driving lessons?

“Sure kid, just pick me up out back of O’Shawnasee’s! We’ll pick up some babes and look for some quaint old wooden bridges to drive under.”

Faulkner lived in the south, and knew what a “carpetbagger” was.
