(CNN) – For only the second time in nearly three decades, there won’t be a Bush on the presidential ballot this November. But that absence may not be a permanent one, the current White House occupants hinted Sunday.
President Bush was asked by a SkyNews correspondent whether the end of his term marked the end of the Bush presidential dynasty that began with his father’s Oval Office tenure 20 years ago.
In response, Bush singled out his brother, who has often been mentioned as a possible Republican presidential contender. "Well, we've got another one out there who did a fabulous job as governor of Florida, and that's Jeb,” he said. “But you know, you better ask him whether or not he's thinking of running. But he'd be a great president."
There had been wide speculation in 2000 that Jeb Bush would enter the Republican primary race that was won by his brother.
During the SkyNews interview, first lady Laura Bush added that public service was an "unbelievable” life.
"One of the reasons George and his brother, Jeb, served in office is because they admired their father [Presient George H.W. Bush] so much," she said.
Asked whether that meant her husband was not “the last Bush," she responded: “Well, who knows. We'll see."
Oh no...not again...please God...not again.
HELL NO!!! the country wont be that stupid for real.
If this country elects another Bush, God help us.
Why is it OK for our potential president to have a history of anti-American connections?
Seriously? Do they honestly believe the country has not had enough of the Bush dynasty?
Why even bother to have elections when executive is turning into a competition between two families?
It's ridiculous to think that, in a nation of 300 million people, the only qualified people all come from the same families.
No more Bushes, No more Clintons.
Please no more Bushes – they are the reason why we are in the shape we are.
Ha, yeah as if anyone would ever vote for a Bush again. I kinda wish he ran this year to prove that fact.
The president may not be the last Bush to run for public office, but he's certainly the last one to be elected.
Fool me once sham on you.
Fool me twice sham on me.
We have already been shamed by the Bush’s. This country would become a laughing stock to elect another.
Yeah right.....this country will put ANOTHER Bush in the Oval Office. Right..... That's hilarious. Dont these political people realize that we are sick of these so-called political dynasties??? What are they thinking?? This is so funny that this is even KIND OF news!!! Another Bush in office.....that's SO FUNNY!!!
No one with at least 2% of brain usage would put another Bush in office!!!
Go ahead Jeb and run...
I dare you...
And see the landslide you lose by.
Geez, know when to call it quits. We're not interested in dynasties. We want CHANGE. No more Bush. Ever.
In all honesty, I think Jeb is a lot better than GW, and he was a decent governor here in Florida, but WHY does everyone in that family think they need to be president? NO MORE!!!
Please, God, no.
nooo more Bush!!!!!!! American be smart
GOD HELP US ALL!!
Dear Lord , I hope not.
Jeb is probably the most capable of the three ... however, we cannot afford another Bush. We simply cannot afford it.
oh hell to the no! Bush is NOT a good president. Stating he'll be a good one means he WON'T!
enough of all the Bush
please, God, no.
I'm confused. "For the first time in nearly three decades, there won’t be a Bush on the presidential ballot this November." What about 1996? Dole/Kemp v. Clinton/Gore.
Uhhh...Is this some kind of joke or what???
Enough already! No More!
Lord, help us all!! Will the nightmare never end??
