BUSH UPS THE ANTE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

No, we’re not talk­ing about for­mer Pres­i­dents Ge­orge W. Bush, Ge­orge H.W. Bush or for­mer pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Jeb Bush. We’re talk­ing about Ge­orge P. Bush, son of Jeb, and cur­rent com­mis­sioner of the Texas Gen­eral Land Of­fice, a sur­pris­ingly pow­er­ful po­si­tion in the Lone Star State.

There has been per­sis­tent chat­ter that the younger Mr. Bush, 41, the new cus­to­dian of the Bush fam­ily’s po­lit­i­cal dy­nasty, boast­ing both a sturdy re­sume and track record. He is also an at­tor­ney, a Naval Re­serve of­fi­cer, real es­tate in­vestor, en­ergy con­sul­tant — and has an­nounced he will seek re-elec­tion to his of­fice, con­tin­u­ing his mis­sion, he says, “to turn a bold, con­ser­va­tive agenda for Texas into con­crete con­ser­va­tive re­sults.”

Among other things, Mr. Bush says he has fought off big govern­ment and rad­i­cal en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists, he ad­vises, and stood up for pro-life val­ues, mil­i­tary vet­er­ans, ed­u­ca­tion and the preser­va­tion of the Alamo.
