DALLAS –  George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of one-time Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has made a campaign filing in Texas that is required of candidates planning to run for state office, an official said Thursday night. The younger Bush, a Fort Worth resident, filed a campaign treasurer appointment Wednesday, a requirement for someone to become a candidate under campaign finance law, Tim Sorrells, general counsel for the Texas Ethics Commission, told The Associated Press.

Good! This is the handsome young son of Jeb... He is fluent in Spanish, and I believe a bit Conservative- more so than Uncle.

I love it. Texas remains fond of the Bush family. Welcome, P.

Stay out of the Bushes. They are a major cause of the mess we are in now.

~~Bush also has Navy service on his resume, including a six-month deployment to Afghanistan, where, for security purposes, he was given a different name. Not even those he was serving alongside knew he was a Bush.~~

A little unknown news here. Good for him. He's a good one.

If George P has what it takes to do a good, and honorable job of the office he seeks, I don't care who he is related to, more power to him.

#6 -- There are plenty members of the Bush family that have NOT gone into politics. Actually, there are more of them that haven't run for office or served in the public sector than have.

Good for George Prescott Bush! Not only is he conservative, but he is handsome and articulate in two languages.

As an aside, I think the GOP would be smart to really build the Hispanic population in Texas. We desperately need to keep Texas a RED state, and I think winning Hispanics in that state will be key as they will help us export the GOP to Hispanics around the country.

Just what the GOP needs, folks that can relate to the Latino Community. If we ever want to see a Repub in the WH, its the only way to go in the future. George P. is a perfect fit for the Conservatives.

One issue politics is bad form. Except when an issue threatens the American way of life, such as uncontrolled, illegal immigration followed by amnesty, repeat. Our sovereignty is at stake. Our culture is under attack from within. The Bush family is wrong on immigration. They have a romanticized view of it. I’d like to invite them to my public work place to witness the blatant anti-American attitudes prevalent among the “students.” In our “mock” election, Romney received 8 percent. That’s about what I expected because hispanic youth are brainwashed to vote democrat from the time they are 18 months old. One platitude that is dead wrong says hispanics have a strong work ethic. Perhaps former generations were hard workers, but the newest waves are entitlement class. Gimme, gimme, gimme.

As with the Kennedys and the Clintons, I fear we will never be free of the Bush clan. Unlike some on this thread, I want to see more of him before I swoon at his feet. There are lots of handsome young men(and pretty women)who can speak Spanish fluently and have done all those other things young P has done.

If Obama can call himself African-American, why can't George P call himself Hispanic? Works for me.

Sorry, no. No more Centrist Bushes. If this guy is a TEA Party patriot, okay, but it is unlikely.

We have held our noses, and voted for the GOP nomination. We have done everything that 'the Architect' and all the beltway insiders have told us to do, and voted for the person who would win.

Only, guess what? They didn't. Either the GOP changes, and puts TEA Party principals at the head, and returns to it's founding principles, or I'm out. It is better to vote convictions and lose (we are losing anyway), than abandon them in the hopes that the moderates we elect will help stop the destruction.

Most of the moderate Republicans get to D.C., and cave. Centrist Republicans are the new 'blue dogs', Boehner is a classic example. We are being sold out from within.

George P. Bush is a friend of mine. I was with him less than two weeks ago. He's a great guy, very conservative, and will be a great Republican, whatever office he seeks. The fact that he is Hispanic doesn't hurt. Remember the Whig Party? I thought not.

I have nothing at all against him. He seems to be a fine young man who appears exactly as he has been raised and groomed to be - the next Bush President someday. He may be very conservative but so was W. Two Bushes enough. As a Texan, we love the Bushes but even my old Ranger pals have no intention of voting for one in a Presidential election again.

Those who urge us to court the hispanic vote remind me of collaborator Parisians who urged their daughters to date German officers; thinking of self interest, not the country. We should concentrate on removing illegals and above all, denying them the privilege of a stolen vote.

No more Bushes. If GWB had reined in the Reps from spending like drunken sailors early in his term we would likely not be in the debacle we now find ourselves.

Who is ´Boo´ Burnham?

It is astonishing and cannot go unremarked that Mississippi’s Gov. Frank “Boo” Burnham, the conservative who won a 2011 landslide, gave an interview Friday in which he demonstrated all that is wrong in American politics—all its division, its intolerance, its ignorance and sickness. Burnham damned and removed from the rolls of the respectable everyone in his state who is pro-choice, who is for some form of gun control, and who supports gay marriage.

North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber II courted controversy over the weekend when he called Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), one of two African-American members of the U.S. Senate, a puppet. Scott recently responded to those comments by saying that he thought it was regrettable for an NAACP official to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend to attack a black elected representative. “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber is quoted as saying of Scott in an extensive profile in the South Carolina outlet The State..

Would Democrats embrace JFK now?

As Democrats begin maneuvering for the 2016 presidential race, there isn’t one who would think of disparaging John F. Kennedy’s stature as a Democratic Party hero. Yet it’s a pretty safe bet that none would dream of running on Kennedy’s approach to government or embrace his political beliefs. Today’s Democratic Party — the home of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Al Gore — wouldn’t give the time of day to a candidate like JFK.

Much is wrong with Washington these days, including much of what is said about what is wrong. Many Americans say there is “too much politics” in Washington. Actually, there is too little. Barack Obama deplores “politics as usual” here. But recently Washington has been tumultuous because politics, as the Framers understood it, has disintegrated. Obama has been complicit in this collapse.

President Obama promised that NSA surveillance activities were aimed exclusively at preventing terrorist attacks. But secret documents from the intelligence agency show that the Americans spy on Europe, the UN and other countries. The European Union building on New York's Third Avenue is an office tower with a glittering facade and an impressive view of the East River. Chris Matthews, the press officer for the EU delegation to the United Nations, opens the ambassadors' room on the 31st floor, gestures toward a long conference table and says: "This is where all ambassadors from our 28 members meet every Tuesday at 9 a.m." It is the place where Europe seeks to forge a common policy on the UN.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
