Skip to comments.Editorial: We recommend Bush in GOP race for land commissioner ("minimally experienced")
Posted on 02/13/2014 6:38:29 AM PST by jimbo123
As Texas land commissioner, Jerry Patterson was a staunchly conservative, hard-charging powerhouse. We didnt always agree with him, but he commanded respect. Too bad, now that hes running for lieutenant governor, the GOP primary doesnt boast a candidate of similar caliber. Voters must choose between the minimally experienced George P. Bush and his tea party opponent, David Watts. In this race, Bush is the better choice.
The 37-year-old energy consultant no doubt benefits from his familys political dynasty. But Bush told us that, while he respects his family, his persuasiveness on the campaign trail is what will sway voters toward him.
Although his answers sometimes reflect a lack of depth, we like others, such as his ideas for bringing in third-party auditors to ensure that the General Land Office is running as efficiently as it can, especially in regard to the administration of Veterans Land Board programs.
The job would stretch Bushs management background. The General Land Office has 620 staffers, oversees veterans housing and manages millions of acres of state holdings.

lack of depth?
stretch Bushs management background?
Not a ringing endorsement...
If his name wasn’t Bush, he wouldn’t be elected to dog catcher. No more Bushes, ever!
Still though millions of TX Repubicans revere the Bush name, but no one really knows why.
If he were a democrat, he could be president.
It’s also clear by this editorial the Dallas newspaper will endorse the democrat in the general election.
Go David Watts ! Stay out da Bushes !
Ha haaaaa! For whom?
Oh. Right. His DemocRAT opponent.
No mas Arbustos!
you should hear the ad’s he is running here in Texas.
This is George P Bush and I will do everything in my power to fight abortion, cut taxes, and repeal Obamacare if you elect me .... Texas Land Commissioner?
what the heck does Texas Land Commissioner have to do with abortion and Obamacare? Does he REALLY think people are that dumb?
George P is definitely following the Obama playbook of racial pandering and a fawning media to cover up his utter lack of any type of leadership and real world experience.
“Its also clear by this editorial the Dallas newspaper will endorse the democrat in the general election.”
Editorial not needed.
It’s a paper from your typically corrupt liberal MSM.
No education, journalism degrees, and a computer terminal.
Of COURSE they’ll endorse the dim-bulb-crat.
I thought it was parody ad at first, couldn't be real, had to be from his opponent.
No more Bushes!
We recommend you support David Watts for TX Land Commissioner.
You got it.
This is the insanity that the Revolution was supposed to end, dynastic rule is repulsive. Somebody needs to show some restraint and recognize that life is unfair and sometimes you’re family name can bar you from some occupations.
Does he REALLY think people are that dumb?”
According to some fellow Republicans they are voting for Bush and the fact that he is not qualified has absolutely nothing to do with it. Yes, they really are that dumb.
Is George P. Bush padding his resume?
Stay out...the Bushes!!!!!
In America the unqualified gravitate toward politics to learn their management skills.
Just look around and tally up how many of our sorry “Professional Politicians” have never had to:
*work for a private company
* meet a payroll deadline,
*supervise more that 7 people,
*fire an employee,
*or save more than a year of their salary.
B. Hussein Soetoro-Obama was chosen by the Democrat voter BECAUSE he had NO management skills, and HE BUILT OBAMACARE.
We, the taxpayers, have paid for the “on the job training” of the politicians we choose how to spend our tax money that WE work for.
Yeah, shame on the politicians and all that chest-beating, but remember that WE were the ones who put them in power in the first place!
GPB is asking us to pay for his “on the job training.”
WE should be asking him to first GET A PRIVATE JOB first.
BTW, Mrs. Bill Clinton, “The most admired Woman in America,” in one of her early jobs was fired by her boss for lying, among other things, when she was a Lawyer at the Watergate Scandal Hearings.
Get a REAL job Georgie P., get a job!
Georgie P, come back when you have a solid resume’ proving that you are worthy of spending our hard-earned tax dollars, and we will then have a “chat.”
what if his last name was Crumpercake, would he still have their support?? Would he even be a contender for public office?? I presume the answer to both would likely be no. Time to stop this Bush dynasty crap.
Translation: Vote for someone with no qualifications except that he’s not backed by the TEA Party.
Fortunately, very few Texans are influenced by the big-city papers,all of which are liberal rags and out of touch with voters.
I would support Charles Manson over a Bush
Go Watts...stay out da Bushes, y’all!
Stop the Magnet endorses: http://www.stopthemagnet.com/candidate-page/david-watts-candidate-for-texas-land-commissioner
Informed voters recommend David Watts.
Actually, he's never given that a thought. People are such stand-patters.
Georgie P has the same resume Andrew Cuomo has - born on third and thinks he hit a triple... Same resume Chelsea Clinton used to get a job with CNN...
No, they don’t subscribe to as many newspapers as they once did, but given the choice between a Bush and an unknown, they will go with the Bush every time.
As long as the Low Information Voter falls for the con-artists who run to feed at the public trough, we, the tax payers, will pay, pay, and pay - - - - .
I would bet that GPB has more relevant experience and common-sense for Land Commissioner than Obama had when he ran for President of the United States!
Okay. So, what’s your point?
Texans don't revere the Bush name. They still have a fondness for GW Bush because he was a good and decent man who loves his country.
Don't fool yourself that we conservatives supported his policies and performance as President. We didn't, but we don't dislike the man.
And you don't seem to disagree with that at all. As a matter of fact, you seem to be pushing that view on FR, with every post. Even your tagline promotes a win by the establishment.
Oh? Just like we accepted the RINO establishment's candidate in the last US Senate election?
Yeah....how's Senator David Dewhurst doing anyway?
I'll bet you'd like that, but it's a non sequitur reply, and typical of a GOP drone.
Tell me, do you support John Cornyn for a third term?
As a U.S. Senator, John Cornyn's performance in office affects all 50 states. Yes, your opinion does matter.
Perhaps you'd like to see David Dewhurst give it another whirl? What say you?
Sorry, let me clarify my tag line.
Go on. I'm listening.
