  •  There have been several diaries (3+ / 0-)

    about George P. Bush filing papers for elective office...one of those diaries is mine, in fact, but this one is the most detailed.

    I actually like that picture of Senior with his grandson even if it's at some upper crusty school (I assume)

    and The Bushes are pretty much the only Republicans in the Party that have a history of winning a good chunk of the Hispanic vote, so the truth may be that the GOP needs the Bushes more than the Bushes need the GOP

      the rear of the White House, but I could be wrong.

      One thing that George P can do is campaign in Spanish, which will help him in Texas. My guess is that given the name recognition, and fund raising ability, he isn't going to have much trouble winning the race for Land Commissioner.

        the Governorship at some point...or any statewide office that he desires...in Texas that is.

          as a place to hang out until Perry leaves? It's a real possibility.

            at least according to aspects of the job description I'm looking at.

            Although do you really want a Bush in charge of this?

            The Texas General Land Office is the lead state agency for managing disaster recovery grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Highly experienced in disaster recovery, the Land Office coordinated the cleanup of the Texas coast after hurricanes Dolly and Ike, and is the administrator for long-term recovery efforts for these hurricanes as well as for the 2011 wildfires. The agency's management of disaster recovery grants gives local communities a single contact, cuts red tape, and reduces administrative costs.

            The State received 2 separate allocations of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) from HUD totaling $3.1 billion for Hurricanes Dolly and Ike. The distribution occurs in three main phases: Round 1, Round 2.1, and Round 2.2. Housing funds are administered locally by 18 different subrecipients across the impacted region, and non-housing funds contracted to more than 200 grantees for infrastructure projects and economic development activities.

            Recently, the State of Texas received another allocation of $31,319,686 in CDBG funds from HUD as disaster recovery assistance for wildfires that occurred between August 30, 2011 and December 31, 2011. The State has been directed by HUD to target at least 80% of this assistance to Bastrop County.

              Not only would a natural disaster be the absolute last thing I would expect for George P. Bush (aka "the little brown one") fuck up, I would expect that if such a disater hit the Governor of Texas would allow GPB to get the facetime.
