  • George P Bush's Struggle In Texas May Signal End Of 70-year Political Dynasty

    03/03/2018 6:31:51 AM PST · by Helicondelta · 96 replies ^ | 3 Mar 2018
    George P Bush is the young, half-Hispanic, grandson of the 41st president, nephew of the 43rd and son of a former Florida governor. When he was elected Texas land commissioner four years ago, that background gave him a significant advantage as a fledgling Republican candidate seemingly on a fast track to stardom. Now, with conservative politics turned on its head by Trumpism, Bush is facing a tough primary election that threatens to doom his political career – and with it, bring to a close his family’s 70-year political dynasty. “It’s quite possible that the Bush political dynasty, at least for...

    The new Texas land commissioner was a future governor or senator, maybe even a future president, in waiting. But somehow, less than four years later, Bush’s future is uncertain. “Yours truly is stuck here in Texas this week, but will be out on the trail,” Bush said. “There’s no better experience than getting involved in a presidential race because you truly do absorb so much more information than say, running for dog catcher like I did in Texas.”

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said he believes former President George H.W. Bush is a “pervert” while condemning the Bush family for speaking out against President Trump. “I really detest them,” Bannon said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “I mean, the old man is a pervert. He’s a pervert. Grabbing these girls and grabbing their asses?” The former White House official was alluding to recent reports of several women accusing the former president of sexual assault, to which he has publicly apologized. “To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke, and...

    Jeb Bush on Monday joined growing Republicans calls for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to step down after Moore allegedly had a sexual encounter with a minor. “This is not a question of innocence or guilt like in a criminal proceeding, this is a question of what’s right and what’s wrong. Acknowledging that you’re dating teenagers when you’re 32 years old as assistant state attorney is wrong. It’s just plain wrong,” the former Republican presidential candidate and Florida governor said during an interview on CNBC. “We need to stand for basic principles, and decency has to be one of...

    Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she...

    The White House punched back at both Presidents Bush on Saturday over their criticism of fellow Republican President Donald Trump as a destructive force in the party. “If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had,” a White House official told CNN. “And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history.” The Bushes let loose on Trump in a new book on their careers and presidencies, “The Last Republicans,” said media reports. “He’s a blowhard,” said President George...

    Both former President Bushes had choice words for current President Donald Trump in a new book scheduled to be published later this month, with the elder Bush reportedly calling the billionaire commander-in-chief a “blowhard” and flatly stating he does not “like” him. Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd top executives respectively, spoke to author Mark K. Updegrove for the book “The Last Republicans.” It detailed the relationship between the father-and-son presidents and how they were fretful of what Trump had done to the Republican Party. Furthermore, both ex-presidents admitted they did not vote for Trump....

    The morning after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton for the presidency, twins Jenna and Barbara Bush, 35, woke up together in Jenna’s bed (her husband, Henry Hager, was away), “filled with gratitude that we had each other for comfort,” they write in their upcoming joint memoir. The divisiveness that marred the 2016 election—and how their profound connection as sisters was a force to lean on through that and other milestones in their lives—were key inspirations for the former first daughters’ book, Sisters First, out Oct. 24. In the deeply personal, emotional and often funny book, the sisters, who called the...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush urged President Trump on Tuesday to act as a voice for "moral clarity" and more forcefully reject racism and hate groups. In a series of tweets, Bush, who once battled Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said the president should quit parsing blame for the recent violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., on various groups and call instead for unity. This is a time for moral clarity, not ambivalence. 1/3 — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) August 16, 2017 I urge @POTUS to unite the country, not parse the assignment of blame for the events in Charlottesville. 2/3...

    What does it take to get Jeb Bush to learn? Nine months after the losing the primaries and then watching his rival Donald Trump go on to win the presidency, he's still displaying the same passive aggressive hostility, the same entitlement mentality, and the self-congratulatory accolades enveloped with a bow in fake claims of civility. He's out shooting spitballs at Trump, offering his words of 'wisdom' to big dollar hedge fund groups in the sad hope of turning his own situation around and browbeating voters into voting for him maybe in 2020. It's as transparent as the light of day....

Jim McGrath, official media representative for the 92-year-old former president, said Bush was hospitalized on Friday "for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest." "It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved," McGrath added in a statement.

Bush told Kathie Lee Gifford on "Today." . . . Upon realizing that the former first lady may have never disclosed not having a full set of toes, Bush Hager appeared to regret revealing the personal details. "Ganny, I'm sorry! I shouldn't have said anything."

    Former Florida governor and Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized President Donald Trump for “saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand.” Bush made the criticism during an interview that aired Sunday with WFOR’s Jim DeFede. “He hasn’t shifted to being President in the way that people are used to, and I think that’s the problem,” Bush said, adding later: “He’s a distraction in and of himself.”

    Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will headline a Planned Parenthood fundraiser next week in Texas, according to a report from the Texas Tribune. Bush is expected to be the keynote speaker at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas's annual Fort Worth fundraising luncheon. President Bush pushed for anti-abortion policies during his time in the White House, but his wife Laura Bush has supported legal abortion in the past. The announcement comes amid the continuing debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a variety of reproductive health services to women, including abortions. Barbara...
