George P. Bush weighing run in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- George Prescott Bush is gearing up to run for a little-known but powerful office in a state where his family already is a political dynasty and where his Hispanic roots could help extend a stranglehold on power Republicans have enjoyed for two decades.

The 36-year-old Fort Worth attorney says he is close to settling on campaigning for Texas land commissioner next year. He doesn't expect to make up his mind until he knows what Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a fellow Republican, decides to do.

"We for sure are running, the question is the office," Bush told The Associated Press during the first interview about his political future since filing paperwork in November to seek elected office in Texas.

Bush's father is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, his grandfather is former President George H.W. Bush and his uncle is former President and Texas Gov. George W. Bush. Perry has been governor since George W. left for the White House.

4. A new law should ban any progencies of Prescott Bush or anybody convicted with Trading with the

 

Enemy Act during WWII or otherwise should be forever banned from running for any office except rat-catcher in the sewer jobs.

It just keeps coming back.

Will somebody please drive a metaphorical wooden stake thru the heart of the Bush family?

8. If Republicans think P. Bush and Marco Rubio will win over Hispanics

just because they have Hispanic blood, think again. We didn't vote for Ted Cruz and we have our own Hispanic superstars.


Go, Julian and Joaquin Castro!
