Jeb Would Make a 'Great President,' Bush Says
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

The second -- and current -- President Bush suggested yesterday that his younger brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, would make a "great president."

"I would like to see Jeb run at some point in time, but I have no idea if that's his intention or not," Bush said in an interview with Florida reporters, according to a story on the St. Petersburg Times Web site.

If that sounds familiar, the Bush brothers' father, former president George H.W. Bush, made a similar statement last year, telling CNN's Larry King that Jeb Bush would be "awfully good" as president.

"This guy's smart, big and strong. Makes the decisions," the first President Bush said then.

3. Oh, goody. A dynasty.
I noticed DUH-bya came down here to FL to tell us the woods were dry, and it was easy to start brushfires.

Gee, thanks DUH-bya. You're a friggin' genius!

5. "George would make a great 'ex-president'", driver8 says.
"I have no idea if that is his intention", driver8 continued, "but I think it would be great for the country if he would consider it."

"This guy is dumb, ignorant, and weak. He makes horrible decisions and fucks over everyone," driver8 said.

10. Takes one to know one
And since Dubya is the worst ever, his opinion on the matter of "great presidents" means nothing.
