    His resume reads whacko enough to get elected in Texas.

    A decent looking Bush with a tan, yep he's in there. People will vote for him because he's a Bush and desperate housewives will vote for him for his looks. He'll be POTUS by 2020.

    I remember, when Hillary looked like she was going to be the Dem. Nominee in 2008, that Grover Norquist was ranting against Political Dynasties/Royalty in American Politics. Has Grover said anything about George P.'s Candidacy?

    Is it just me & my Grade School Civics Teaching, but isn't there something Un-American about Political Dynasties in American Politics? And isn't there an "ICK" Factor about Little Political Princes being "groomed" to Rule His Peasants ?

    His right eye's got a thing going on with it. His teeth: less of them and get them straightened.. a looker he is not.
    POTUS by 2020? Not IMO.
    But hey, we elected Dubya twice, so one never knows....

    Well DM, I've only seen a few pics of him but money will take care of all of his flaws..... And he IS a Bush. I'm going to have to google him to get a better look.

    Is there any person who is not pro life? When one say I am pro life that means there are other people who are not, isn't that pathetic way to mislead people? to which century this guy belongs

    I remember him as a boy during his grandfather's campaign – and he had passion for the political stage even then. He is definitely up and coming.

    "A decent looking Bush with a tan," Actually, his mother is Mexican, and he speaks fluent Spanish, so he is in a good position to understand and communicate with the Hispanic population in America – as a Republican.

    @feedom, thanks for the laugh, your thoughts of him up and coming might have nothing to do with politics.

    @ freedom
    Doesn't Marco Rubio speak spanish also freedom? I don't think that's helped him one bit in regards to communicating and more importantly clicking with the Latino community as a Republican.

    You're right of course Wake up.
    Looks really shouldn't matter ultimately, but that Bush thing is going to be something get over if you ask me.
    After all, after Duhbya, even mama Bush had to say "No more Bushes".
    Time will tell though babe, won't it?
    We're just sitting here talking smack!

    I don't remember any kids on the campaign trail. The man is 37 years of age, which puts at ages 15 and 11 for the two campaigns. I don't recall any kids, and George H.W. Bush doesn't seem the type to drag a young teen on a grueling campaign trail. I'm not saying it didn't happen. I'm just saying that it seems extremely unlikely. Maybe you saw GWB.

    Looks like the hate and vitriol is out in force today on the left (as usual). The kid is running for LAND COMMISSIONER! Who the heck cares?! Leave him alone and let him do his civic duty if he gets elected.

    Obama has done nothing to help his own race in this country, let alone the Hispanics. They are smart enough to know they have not been helped. And they're not afraid of work – like Obama would like them to be – only dependent on the almighty government. They have family values and faith and want to make a living to support their families. Obama is trying to destroy this ethic.

    He was on the stage at the end of the Republican National Convention, with all the confetti in the air, shouting "Viva, Bush!"
