    The Bush family doesn't waste any time indoctrinating the next generation into the world of politics. George H.W. Bush's baby great-grandson Prescott joined his father George P. Bush in the voting booth yesterday as daddy runs for Texas land commissioner. Baby Prescott was swept up by his mom Amanda just as dad went into the booth - but he still got an 'I Voted' sticker.

    George P. Bush hopes to be the next in the political family dynasty to hold public office, he said in an interview with Fox News Latino on Saturday. Bush, who generally has avoided discussing his plans for his own political future, said that possibly “in the next election cycle” he’ll focus on holding public office in Texas, where he lives. Some political insiders in Texas have been raising 2014 as a year when Bush might figure prominently as a candidate. Though he did not get specific about what office he is eying, political observers have mentioned Texas State Attorney General...

    Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul asked for some advice from Texas GOP rising star George P. Bush on how to reach out to Hispanic voters — and got a simple recommendation: Show up, Politico reported. “Really I wanted to get advice from him, as much as anything, about how the party grows in Texas and states with large Hispanic populations,” Paul, who's considered a possible GOP candidate for president in 2016, said after stumping for a state senate candidate in Dallas. Bush, whose mother is from Mexico, has pushed for expanding the GOP reach to Hispanics. Paul said Bush recommended...

    AUSTIN, Texas — George Prescott Bush stood among the ladies at the Concho Valley Republican Women’s meeting in San Angelo as they spoke about how attractive the contender for the Texas General Land Office commissioner was. A Hispanic woman joked in Spanish to him that the boyish man of 37 with a broad smile looked better in person than on TV. George P. Bush is the nephew of former President George W. Bush and the son of Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida. At the meeting in late September he had already been campaigning for 11 months, having delivered...

    George P. Bush, a son of a governor and a nephew and grandson to U.S. presidents, has filed to run statewide in Texas, the latest member of the powerful political family to seek elected office. Bush, 37, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and his Mexican-born wife, Columba, is seen by some as a transformative figure - a Hispanic candidate for a Republican Party that wants to appeal to the growing and increasingly influential electorate of Latino voters. Bush filed on Tuesday to run for Texas Land Commissioner, a position which, among other duties, manages the Alamo in...

    George P. See. I don't even have to use the last name and many of you know who this is, though his tio, W, has him beat on name abbreviation. Many calculate that P is a future governor, attorney general, land commissioner or, apparently, holder of whatever statewide office presents itself first in Texas. And someday? You didn't hear it here first — President P. But, of course, were it not for the surname-that-need-not-be-mentioned, he'd have to work much harder to be mentioned. No, that's not quite right. Mexican roots also burnish his star stature. He represents the perfect mixture...

    George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of one-time Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has made a campaign filing in Texas that is required of candidates planning to run for state office, an official said Thursday night. The younger Bush, a Fort Worth resident, filed a campaign treasurer appointment Wednesday, a requirement for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law, Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, told The Associated Press. Sorrells said the report does not specify what office Bush might seek, if any, and he had no other details...

Bush, has taken his first step toward running for office by filing an “appointment of a campaign treasurer” with the Texas Ethics Commission, according to The New Republic.

    George P.

    A generation's future hangs in the balanceIf you're in your 20s or 30s, why should you care about retirement when it's more than three decades away? Because if Congress doesn't act now to reform Social Security in this session, our generation will not enjoy one of the most cherished entitlements sought by all working Americans. The problem with Social Security is a simple mathematical issue: There are fewer people paying into the system and more people taking out. And it's getting worse.People are living longer and having fewer children. The result is that the number of workers paying Social Security...

    It would be the perfect media match, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton versus First Lady Laura Bush for president in 2008. Not possible, you say? Mrs. Clinton, after all, is almost certain to be running for her party's nomination. After her recent hilarious and deft comic performance at the recent White House correspondents' dinner in the nation's capital, Mrs. Bush, already far more popular than her husband, is now clearly the most well-liked woman in America.

    For a nation born of a revolt against monarchy, America has an odd weakness for crown princes.From the republic's earliest days, Americans have been fixated by young men seemingly born to rule - smart, dashing men with weighty names, such as Adams, Kennedy or Roosevelt. America's latest heir-apparent carries a greater weight than most. He is George P Bush, 28-year-old son of Florida's governor, Jeb Bush, and nephew of President George W Bush. It would be burden enough that George P has been praised by the first President Bush as the most politically aware of his grandchildren. Though he graduated...
