Bush Dynasty Shifts To The Right

Though the two Bush presidencies certainly look much more appealing when viewed through the lens of the disastrous Obama regime, conservatives can easily find in both, policies that with which they disagree in both administrations.

The Bush name, however, as with Kennedy on the other side of the aisle, continues to be a powerful draw for voters. It is no surprise that the next generation of that family is now expressing interest in politics.

One of the most prominent young Bushes, George P., is the grandson of former president George H.W. Bush and the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. While the name is familiar, his viewpoint indicates a refreshing move toward principled conservatism.

The younger Bush recently announced his intention to seek the office of Texas land commissioner; though he made it clear he does not want to rely on his family name. In fact, he indicated his desire to leave much of that heritage behind as his campaign continues.

“On social questions, national defense, economic issues,” he said, “I’m a strong conservative.”

Instead of carrying on the establishment values embraced by others in his family, the 37-year-old prospective commissioner cited a number of more conservative politicians as his ideological forbears. Among the greatest influences of his current worldview, he explained, was the 1994 “Contract with America” promoted by then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Furthermore, George P. has been a vocal supporter of fellow Texan Ted Cruz, especially during the senator’s filibuster against ObamaCare. Bush’s own father, Jeb, was adamantly opposed to Cruz’s stance.

According to a former campaign manager for Cruz, the support can go a long way in spreading the conservative message. While Cruz and the Bush clan might butt heads on many issues, the staffer indicated that “George P. tries to cross that divide.”

While it is possible the younger Bush is trying to capitalize on a groundswell of conservative support in his state and beyond, he is now firmly on record as a warrior for the cause. With no GOP opposition heading into the election, his chances look good in the consistently red state.

As too many politicians – including some in his own family – have proven, though, rhetoric is notoriously untrustworthy. Voters taking George P. at his word now must remain vigilant in keeping him honest should his first electoral bid prove successful.

    I would like to believe that a Bush is finally realizing that his father grandfather and uncle were nothing but RINOs.Somehow his family will disown him.

    President George H.W. Bush assisted in the assassination of JFK. That's really all you need to know. As a 33rd degree Mason, he is also a Luciferian NWO globalist. He was also a personal friend of Margaret Sanger, an abortionist and eugenicist. He supported population control and Planned Parenthood. He is the undisputed leader of the US Shadow Government CIA Mafia, which includes the Obamas, the Clintons, his sons, Romney, many federal judges, many FED Chairmen, Senators, and Congressmen. As the leader of this mafia, he has engaged routinely in drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, money laundering, bribery, blackmail, and even human trafficking. He encouraged George W. and JEB to run for Governors of Texas and Florida respectively to eliminate drug interdiction. Soon, he will answer to God for his crimes.

    For God's sake and your own, do not believe any word coming from any politician associated with the Bushes.
