AAAAAA! Daddy Bush thinks he’s got another great candidate for president lined up: his second son Jeb. People, after Jeb he’s got two more sons, Neil and Marvin, and a daughter, Dorothy. SOMEBODY STOP HIM BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
His remarks: “I’d like to see him run. I’d like to see him be president someday.” When asked if he was serious, he said: “Or maybe senator. . .Whatever. Yes, I would. I mean, right now is probably a bad time, because we’ve had enough Bushes in there. But no, I would. And I think he’s as qualified and able as anyone I know on the political scene. Now, you’ve got to discount that. He’s my son.”
Lord help us. It does sound like Jeb is doing some résumé burnishing: apparently he is considering a run for the Senate. This is a man who has helped end affirmative action in Florida, who signed “Terri’s Law” relating to the Terri Schiavo situation, opposes gay marriage, domestic partner benefits, gay adoption and gay hate crime laws, calls feminism a “modern victim movement”, wants to build more prisons, supports abstinence education, wants more money for the “Drug War”, wants welfare recipients to feel “shame”, and believes that abortion should be banned except in the event of rape, incest or threat to the health of the mother.
