George W. Bush is Jeb Bush’s Biggest Liability in Quest for White House
Former president George W. Bush admitted what most of us knew was true of his brother, Jeb Bush, that he has a “me” problem. Yep, he is tied to his sibling in every way possible. Babara Bush called it right the first time when she was adamant against another Bush in the White House.
“It’s an easy line to say, ‘Haven’t we had enough Bushes?’ After all, even my mother said, ‘Yes,’” the former president told an audience of 7,000 health IT experts here on Wednesday.
“That’s why you won’t see me out there, and he doesn’t need to defend me, and he’s totally different from me. The role of family is not to be a political adviser or a policy adviser — there are plenty of those around — the role is to say, ‘Hey man, I love you.’
“The president needs people around him who are there to say they want to help. Imagine if instead Laura had been saying to me, ‘What the hell did you get us into this for?’ You’re living in a museum. It’s cold. It’s not your furniture. It’s Jefferson’s furniture.” Source: Politico
Um, no surprise here…Jeb Bush has a George W. Bush problem that will dog him on the campaign trail. Well, just as soon as the rest of the GOP field figures out that Hillary Clinton isn’t their immediate adversary.
