Gentry GOP Matriarch: Jeb Bush Is Best Qualified to Run for President

Barbara Bush: No more political dynasties – Jose DelReal – POLITICO.com

The former first lady, while giving her son Jeb Bush a strong vote of confidence, said, “[T]here’s no question in my mind that Jeb is the best-qualified person to run for president, but I hope he won’t … There are other families. I refuse to accept that this great country isn’t raising other wonderful people.”

Best qualified person to run for president?

This is being spun as Ms. Bush’s disapproval of a Jeb candidacy, but it’s a far cry from, “If nominated, I will not run, if elected, I will not serve.”

I can think of no circumstances under which I would ever vote for another member of the Bush family, given the disastrous record of previous Bush presidencies.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
