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.

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.

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..

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.

It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
