The end of the Bush dynasty

It would have been preferable to see it end sooner, but the main thing is that America's worst political dynasty is coming to an end:
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.

The land commissioner job – which manages state-owned land – was perceived to be a stepping stone to higher office, but the evisceration of his father, Jeb, in the 2016 Republican presidential primary showed that as it lurched to the right and was seduced by sound and fury, the GOP was no longer in the market for a quiet moderate named Bush.

Though he has far more campaign cash than his rivals and has reportedly spent $2m in the past month, Bush has run an anaemic – one might say low-energy – campaign, with scant media availability and no events listed on his website. He is still the favourite, but if he fails to get above 50% of the vote on 6 March – when Texas holds the country’s first primaries ahead of the 2018 midterms – he will face a potentially dangerous runoff.

“It’s quite possible that the Bush political dynasty, at least for this generation, could end in the spring of 2018 because if George P Bush fails to win the GOP nomination for land commissioner it’s tough to see him coming back from that any time soon,” said Mark Jones, a political scientist at Rice University. The dynasty began with Prescott Bush – George P’s great-grandfather – becoming senator for Connecticut in 1952.
The Bushes have done more than enough harm to the nation. About the last thing that America - what is left of it - needs is a watered-down fourth-generation edition to deal with the damage meted out by his ancestors.

A gamma for a sire and a squat Amerindian troll for a dam. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Please clap.

Not that I particularly wish to do violence to anyone based on appearance normally, but Jeb's face induces a punching reaction in me. Does anyone else have that reaction?

The Bush family have been traitors to the right-wing and to America since the very beginning. I have always believed that, with a Bush VP, the deep state attempted to assassinate Reagan.

I do hope the article is correct and the Bush horror show is at an end.

Most real men feel that way when encountering a gamma. It’s almost instinctive.

Enough of the Bushes, I'm bushwhacked!!

Blogger Duke Norfolk March 04, 2018 7:21 AM  

Yes, thank God for the G-E. On that other timeline this Hispanic infiltrator would be par for the course, and another clear sign of the impending doom of our nation.

May he drift into total irrelevancy and no doubt help fritter away the family fortune.

Now if only something could be done about the Kennedys.

A dynasty so terminally inbred it puts the Hapsburgs to shame.

Witness this year's model, Joey-Joe-Jo The Drooling Princleing of Camelot.

A blank slate with a good looking face. The Democrats have been absolute chumps for both since his great grand uncle stole the throne.

Name the enemy --> The enemy is the NWO/Globalists, and the Left is merely one branch. The Bush Family are NWO/Globalists, and thus the enemy.

Trump joked yesterday (or did he?)about President Xi's new lifetime leader position, and said "He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great," Trump said. "And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day."

Make it so.

Blogger Rick March 04, 2018 9:49 AM  

Jeff — that’s called (now) strategic deception. Like throwing fish guts to wharf cats. Keeps them occupied. Plus it drives the left insane, and gives the supporters joy.

Damn... I was hoping 41 had f'in' croaked. I will literally stop, stand and applaud when I hear news of him or his prick son Shrub biting the big one.

As I did with Teddy and Janet Reno.

I trace the corruption of the modern scientific enterprise back to Vannevar Bush and his influence over post-WWII science policy. I had always assumed that he was part of the Bush political dysnasty, but it seems that I was mistaken.
Still, his corrosive influence on scientific integrity continues to this day.
Also, he founded Raytheon.

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother March 04, 2018 11:02 AM  

George P Bush is hell bent on literally ripping our heart out in Texas, by dismantling and relocating the cenotaph. The cenotaph is the memorial to the Texians who died at the Alamo. Its location is central to our state and our identity. Its location is the spot where the damnable Mexicans piled the dead bodies of the Alamo defenders and burned them in a mass funeral pyre.

Even discussing moving the Cenotaph is a sacrilege, and evidence of treason against Texas.

Blogger pyrrhus March 04, 2018 11:03 AM  

Prescott Bush, errand boy for the Rockefellers and known for trading with the enemy (as Rockefeller nominee) during WW2, was the perfect scion for this corrupt family of Deep State apparatchiks...

Blogger pyrrhus March 04, 2018 11:08 AM  

The sheer idiocy of Jeb telling Americans that he liked brown skinned invaders better will stand out forever...

Blogger pyrrhus March 04, 2018 11:12 AM  

When you think about it, treason seems to be the Bush family's stock in trade....Press Bush trades with German banks during WW2, George is a CIA agent involved in the assassination of JFK, who later lies about his presence in Dallas on that day, W lets Cheney engineer 9-11, passes the Patriot Act, invades Iraq to make fortunes for everyone involved; Jeb is all in for brown skinned invaders to replace the American population....Wonder what George P's ideas are?

Blogger James Dixon March 04, 2018 11:50 AM  

> Does anyone else have that reaction?

My desired reaction to anyone in the Bush family involves a bit more violence than that.

> As I did with Teddy and Janet Reno.

You have no idea how glad I am Reno suffered with Parkinson's for years before she died. If anyone deserved it, she did.

> Wonder what George P's ideas are?

See the above comment about the Alamo.

Move the Cenotaph?!!!

He wants to fail at politics, and this is the only way to an early exit.

Thanks for info.

Good Grief. What is wrong with these people?

Effeminate and childlike (not as in honest, but as immature).

@24. Correct. Don't mess with the Alamo. Don't mess with the Cenotaph.

Anybody who has lived in Texas for any length of time should know how sacred the Alamo site is to Texans. Even though George P. Bush was born in Texas, it appears his Mexican mother didn't teach him about the Alamo. And, he married a Yankee who apparently has no appreciation for the significance of the Alamo.

Blogger Akulkis March 04, 2018 1:47 PM  

I'm from Detroit, and everybody who is even remotely American knows about the Alamo, and its significance.

Even Pee Wee Herman remembera the Alamo.

He's spending that much money to be f-ing "Land Commissioner"? And the best he's got is jack with the Alamo?
Like that drooling Kennedy...the gene pool's gotten shallower with each bastard generation.
TX voters, please end this now!

@28 I suspect that trashing the Alamo legend is only a first step for a Bush politician....

All he cares about is the next office. And ruining everything along the way that he can.

While I generally think voting is a waste of time, my husband and myself went and early voted precisely to vote against George P. Bush (and a churchian corrupt candidate for a state senate seat). I gritted my teeth and said nothing whatsoever to the barely comprehensible Chinese all-American working at the polling station.

Blogger Wynn Lloyd March 04, 2018 5:47 PM  

I'm guessing she would do a better job, since they will at least honor their enemies (after they're good and dead, of course).

I'm guessing a bunch of low-caste Mexican immigrants have no such tradition.

Oh, I suspect she did, but the Santa Anna version.

A journalist with superb writing skills is required to tell the tale of a power hungry dynasty started by a Yankee in Connecticut whose descendants end up as governors of Texas and Florida. The other questions that the (((media))) will never investigate is why George P. Bush is not running for office in Florida, where his father was governor.

Blogger B.J. March 05, 2018 9:18 AM  

Would Prescott Bush be proud of his mestizo great grandson I wonder?

Families are always rising and falling in America.
