George P. Bush, nephew of the former president, reportedly takes first step toward political office
Dallas Morning News ^ | Nov 9 2012 | AP

It turns out the calls for a stronger Hispanic voice in the GOP — more urgent than ever after Barack Obama’s massive support among the demographic Tuesday — were heard loud and clear in North Texas.

George P. Bush, son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of former President George W. 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.

He can do everything he can to try and get Hispanics to vote Republican. I’ll be impressed if he succeeds.

Never going to vote for him for President though.

One of his first steps should be to change his name. He’ll never get elected as a “Bush”.

And now we know why Jeb has been laying the groundwork. Not for himself. For his son.

I oppose these dynasties on both sides of the political fence. I want to see some politicians that have families that live and work in realville. Not kids that went to a prep school, Ivy league and then intern in DC.

I agree. He should change his name to:

Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho

(For those of you who don’t recognize the name, Google it)

Doesn't matter, this country has passed the tipping point.
All Hispanics want are handouts and free-bees.

Whats the point.

If the repubs want to compromise their principles (which they will do in the belief that that will get them elected), why bother.

Does anyone disagree with me on that point?

Socialism is here to stay. It has gained a firm grip now and will only get worse.

Yes. Run on your own merit. Not your connections.

And we shouldn’t reject a person just because.

I despise every bush that draws a breath. george bush... both of them... are directly responsible for what we are reaping. They had the Republic through Reaganism... they turned their back on the Gipper and both worked to destroy all that he had built. I have more to say... I will refrain for now. The bush dynasty will never see another ounce of support from me.

George P. is betting that by the end of this administration the Bush name will take on a new polish and glow.

I would not bet against him.

Let Jeb and P fight it out and knock each other out.

The Bush name has become tainted in politics for decades to come.

Even 2012 exit polls showed people will still blaming Open Checkbook George for most of the economic problems.

Well. In addition to his pedigree, he is a Navy veteran who served in Afghanistan. Plus he’s half Hispanic (which is a bonus for the GOP).

Downside: His last name.

He could be the best candidate in the country, but democrats have poisoned the “Bush” name to the point he will never get a fair chance.

Not that it matters, but George P Bush doesn’t look *anything* like Jeb. Gotta wonder if the wife cheated on him, given her personal problems and all. Heck, I can’t tell if Noel is Jeb’s biological daughter. Whereas it’s pretty clear GWB’s daughters are his flesh and blood.

Downside: His last name.

No problemo gringo

His birth name is George Prescott Garnica Bush, the Garnica from his madre, Senora Jeb Garnica-Gallo Bush, she is Mexican-American.

El Presidente Jorge Garnica Arbusto!!

Viva Mexico! Viva Los Criminales del Norte!

he is a Navy veteran who served in Afghanistan.

*****************

Interesting tidbit about his Afghanistan deployment.

Snip
Bush also has Navy service on his resume, including a six-month deployment to Afghanistan, where, for security purposes, he was given a different name. Not even those he was serving alongside knew he was a Bush.

End snip

Let him run if he wants to. I wouldn’t write him off just because his last name is Bush. Also, he likely isn’t running for anything big, maybe just the Texas House.

Have I ever tried to do anything but tell it the way I see it? It is your mind to make up and no one elses. Conservatives lost in part because we cannot unite. We either unite or fall. Until then... I will speak truth to evil.

if i could be a truly benevolent tyrant with one job, goal and mission, to sit above our governmental units and protect our essential Liberty from our government systems themselves behaving as tyrants, i would ban political family dynasties - yes I know their members are inidividuals too; I just don’t believe they are good for us, and I don’t accept their members as all “just wanting to give ‘public service’ “; no, they just look around and don’t see themselves capable of doing anything so great as trading on the family name

tell all the Bushes, Kennedys, Cuomos, Clintoons, etc., etc., to just go away - puhleeze
