Well, you knew at some point the Republican Party was going to try to inflict another Bush upon us, and it looks like the attempt will be made in 2016 with Jebby.
Will another member of the Bush family dynasty make a run for the White House? In an interview in College Station, Texas, this week, George P. Bush told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl he thinks his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, will “more than likely” run for president in 2016.
“I think it’s actually, I think it’s more than likely that he’s giving this a serious thought in moving forward,” George P. Bush told Karl aboard his campaign bus in College Station, Texas.
“More than likely that he'll run?” Karl asked.
“That he'll run,” Bush said. “If you had asked me a few years back, I would've said it was less likely.”
Bush said his family will support his father “a hundred percent” should he decide to launch a bid for the White House.
Jeb's other son, Jeb Jr., also agrees.
“No question,” Jeb Jr. said in an interview, “people are getting fired up about it — donors and people who have been around the political process for a while, people he’s known in Tallahassee when he was governor. The family, we’re geared up either way.” Most important, he added, his mother, Columba, the prospective candidate’s politics-averse wife, has given her assent.
Everything old is new again. The prospect of Jeb vs. Hillary, Clinton vs. Bush, has our Village Elders practically peeing themselves with excitement, surely.
America on the other hand is going to be doing a lot of eye-rolling and nose-holding over the next two years.
Looks like I'm going to get some more use out of that Unfinished Bush Business tag.
