President Jeb Bush? Noooooooooooo!
Former President George H.W. Bush said his son Jeb should run for president and blasted the New York Times for its “grossly unfair” criticism of another son, President George W. Bush.
During an interview on “FOX News Sunday,” the nation’s 41st president said Jeb, the former governor of Florida, is “as qualified and as able as anyone I know in the political scene” to be president.
“I’d like to see him run,” Bush said. “I’d like to see him be president some day.
“As president, it’s about service, service for the greatest country on the face of the Earth and the honor that goes with it,” Bush said. “I think Jeb fits that description.”
He added: “I mean, right now is probably a bad time, because we’ve got enough Bushes in there.”
Let me just be the first to say: No more Bushies in the White House, ever, for any reason. I don’t even want “Cletus Bush” in there taking out the trash.
We have a nation of over 300 million people. Surely, we can find someone without the last name of “Bush” to be President — especially given that one of the two previous Bushies was a one term President and the other spent a large chunk of his 2nd term with a sub 30% approval rating.
As far as I’m concerned, if I have to choose between a random Republican out of the phone book and Jeb Bush, it’ll be, “Hello, President Reggie Clekarsky!”
