Last year when Barbara Bush was asked about her son Jeb possibly running for president she said she thought the country has had enough Bushes. This was the first time I agreed with her. We have had 12 years of Bush presidencies and that is enough. Over the weekend the matriarch changed her mind, but I didn’t change mine. There has to be more than the Bushes and the Clintons qualified to occupy the Oval Office. Yes, I said it the Clintons. Hillary is the lady in waiting and I have to believe that someone will stop her ascendency. She was invincible in 2008 and she is invincible yet again, but we know how that cloak of invincibility worked for her in 2008. So she needs to be looking over her shoulder because I for one am looking for an alternative.

Former first lady Barbara Bush was asked today if her son Jeb Bush should run for president. She said he was the best qualified but she said no. She said there are many talented families and people in this country and “we’ve had enough Bushes”. I agree with her and I think we have also had enough Clintons. What do you think?
Preisdent Bush’s new book Decision Points is coming out this week. He chronicles a lot of events that shaped his life but one of them is down right disturbing. President Bush opposed abortion, but in the book he shared that as a teenager his mother suffered a miscarriage and she placed the fetus in a jar to take to the hospital with her, and seeing this fetus helped solidify his opposition to abortion. What???? Please tell me why would a mother show this to one of her children? To me this borders on child abuse. To place that kind of indeligble imprint in the mind of your child is simply cruel. There was nothing edifying about this act.
