Ah, the Bush years. A deteriorating economy, two deadly wars, every child left behind, no international credibility, lots of wiretapping, and an unbounded sense that nothing was possible. Wouldn’t it be great to return to that?
Laura Bush and George W. think so…
Former first lady Laura Bush wishes there were one more candidate in the Republican presidential primary: Jeb Bush.
Speaking to a sold-out Sarasota audience on Wednesday, Bush said she had hoped that her brother-in-law and former Florida governor would have jumped into the race this year.
Husband George W. Bush "and I wish he would," Laura Bush said when asked if Jeb Bush will run for president someday. "We wanted him to this time."
What does one look for in a potential president? Education, leadership experience, vision? Nope. Apparently, the most important credential for a prospective leader of the free world is just a big old Bush at the end of your name.
Of course George would endorse Jeb. W staked his entire presidency on non-existent weapons of mass destruction, so it only makes sense that he would endorse a non-existent candidate.
I'm just surprised it's not this guy.
