The Royal Family wants another run at it

Former President Bush touts son Jeb for top job - Yahoo! News

Former President Bush touts son Jeb for top job

WASHINGTON – Another President Bush?

Perhaps so, says former President George H.W. Bush, who has already seen one son, George W., serve in the Oval Office. The nation's 41st president said Sunday that he would like to see a second son, Jeb, be president one day.

Jeb Bush is the current president's younger brother and a former popular governor of Florida. He is mulling a run for Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla.

Asked in a broadcast interview about Jeb Bush's consideration of the Senate seat, Bush 41 said: "I'd like to see him run. I'd like to see him be president someday."

When asked if he was serious, he said: "Or maybe senator. Whatever. Yes, I would. I mean, right now is probably a bad time, because we've had enough Bushes in there. But no, I would. And I think he's as qualified and able as anyone I know on the political scene. Now, you've got to discount that. He's my son."

The former president spoke on "Fox News Sunday" in an interview that was taped Friday in Houston.

He will be at the White House on Wednesday for a lunch with President George W. Bush, President-elect Barack Obama and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.

The senior Bush said he does not plan to offer advice to Obama and mainly wants to wish him well. "I talked to him right after the election and did that then, assured him that he was my president," Bush said.

The former president also plans to go skydiving once again, in June, to mark his 85th birthday. He will do so in tandem with an expert. "Just because you're an old guy, you don't need to sit around sucking your thumb drooling in the corner," he said. "Old guys can still do stuff, and that's the main reason."

Well, GHWB needs something to clean the palate. W pissed on the family legacy so much that it would require some kind of Jeb run to even attempt to bring it back to adequate.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

LOL, I read the same article this evening and even contemplated posting it, but decided not to. Did not see any point in rubbing it in.

Yes he is, but here's the catcher, people that voted for him are old and senile. And the rest are just Dumber.

I predicted Jeb was groomed for the next POTUS a long time ago when GW took his fat ass to help the tsunami clean up. Guess that was one heck of a job that his "expertise" rendered total worthless. Since that helicopter ride and photo shoot, not a word peeped from that dump fat ass, which is a very good thing.

If he runs, I think someone will no doubt take a pot shot at him as:
1) The Bush name leaves a very bad taste in many people's mouth, and many angry people out there about that family.
2) Many people still think he helped manipulating votes to benefit his brother, which ultimately fucked the country at the end.

To me, I wish he will run. Some gardener will no doubt will trim a bush one of these days.
