'Next Bush' makes campaign filing in Texas
My Way News ^ | 11-9-12 | By SCHUYLER DIXON

Posted on 11/10/2012 3:13:01 AM PST by afraidfortherepublic

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 on the filing, which wasn't available online. Bush did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment, and no phone listing for him could be found.

The 36-year-old said in September his goal was to run for office and acknowledged that he had his eyes on several statewide offices.

Raised in Florida, Bush decided to settle in Texas, home to his uncle and his grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush. He runs a consulting firm and has been active in Republican Party outreach to college students. He's also the co-founder of Hispanic Republicans of Texas, a group that seeks to elect Hispanic candidates.

Did Meghan McCain do the same in Arizona? When are Barry & Michelle’s girls going to run for Congress? What’s up with Amy Carter? Wasn’t she an expert on nuclear proliferation?

Beware of any politician with the last name Bush.

While they might be people of good character.....they have proven to be RINO’s......

And what have two RINO Repub candidates in a row done for us in the last two presidential elections?

Agree with you both. I liked W a lot, and respected his love of country and what he did to protect us, but for the only time in my life I agree with Jesse Jackson: “Stay outta the Bushes.”

The time is ripe to (unbelievably) quote the Rev. Jackson.

“STAY OUT ‘THE BUSHES”

enough already.

I can't go through another fours years of another President Bush refusing to defend himself against the attacks from the left. The housing crash wasn't Bush's fault, it was the Democrats who lowered loaning standards and refused to reign in F&F. The collapse of the US auto industry wasn't Bush's fault, in that he didn't force Americans to buy foreign makes instead of their own. Katrina wasn't Bush's fault, but was the failure of the local and state leaders, both Democrats, for failing to act. The deficit wasn't Bush''s fault, because he was paying for the WOT that Clinton had punted on, and the deficit was 165 billion and shrinking when the Democrat controlled Congress replaced the GOP controlled Congress in 2007. None of this was Bush's fault, but he allowed the left to blame him for all of it.

Instead of using the pulpit to defend himself, Bush "reached across the aisle" and literally let the left walk all over him. I can't go through another four years of that.

Sorry, but NO NEW BUSHES.

This Texan votes NO. Let this family bow out of politics and do something useful. We ought to consider political office one step above welfare, because both classes are a drain on taxpayers.

“The Bushes are the GOP version of the Kennedy’s - - - “

That has been my understanding for a long time. Today’s party of RINO’s are now what the Kennedy Democrat party was in the 60’s. (I think this is why many cannot see any difference between Republicans and Democrats.)

The democrat party is now a commie socialist party that belongs in Europe.

The only party that represents conservative values is the Tea Party.

It will be interesting to see which statewide office he maybe interested in pursuing which could occur in 2014.

Well, if you clicked through the link to read the whole story you will find that he served a tour of Afghanistan, among other useful services. When he served in A, he had to do so under an assumed name. Even his collegues did not know his real name.

Have either of you served a tour in Afghanistan?

Good observation. Sadly, Mitt and his four sons had no military experience.

Note that most US Presidents have had daughters - weird - GW Sr. had one, W had 2, Nixon 2, LBJ 2, JFK 1, Carter 1, Reagan 2, Clinton 1. Ford 3. Obama 2.

Rule of thumb; If a candidate for POTUS has a son - he had better be in the military - or have served. I think it may be subliminal.

GWH Bush had another daughter who died and 3, or 4 sons. LBJ had an illegitimate son. (Spittin’ image. Died before it could be proved.) JFK had 2 sons, one who died at birth and one who died in his 20s. Carter had several sons. Reagan had 2 sons (one adopted). Ford had only 1 daughter and 3 sons. We’re not sure whether Clinton had any children at all ;)

So, I count 15 sons vs 15 daughters. Seems to me that the sons are holding their own.

George P. Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush, is the one who campaigned in Mexico for George Bush...

I predicted *years* ago during the second Bush disaster, this guy would eventually run for President, to continue the Bush dynasty.

I am convinced the Bush dynasty understood, if they could flood the country with tens of millions of illegals, P. Bush would have a shot at POTUS.

W. Bush in fact during 8 years as POTUS, made American citizenship all but pointless, and in fact emboldened tens of millions of illegals, to march on our towns and cities, while waving foreign flags and making demands and threats.

Dallas Texas, 2006, so emboldened by Bush, 500,000 illegals and their supporters march on Dallas Texas, making demands and threats.

Those capable of critical thought, years ago were able to see the Bush family and their enablers continually push and support their dynasty.
