George P. Bush Files Paperwork, Could Be Next In Family To Seek Office

George P. Bush Files To Run For Office

George P. Bush files paperwork in Texas to run for office, making him the latest in the Bush clan to seek political office.

He is the nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of Jeb Bush, the one-time governor of Florida. News that George P. Bush files paperwork reach the media on Thursday.

As The Associated Press reported, George P. Bush filed a campaign treasurer appointment, which is the first step under campaign finance law for someone who wants to become a candidate.

The report didn’t say what office George P. Bush might be looking for, and Bush didn’t immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press for a comment.

Though George P. Bush was raised in Florida, he decided to move to Texas, where he runs a consulting firm and is active in the GOP’s outreach to college students.

News that George P. Bush files to run for office doesn’t come as too big of a surprise. The 36-year-old said a few months ago that he had a goal of running for office and was considering several statewide posts.

The news could also be a boon for the Republican Party, as Bush could help create inroads with Hispanic voters that the party desperately needs. George P. Bush, who has a Mexican mother, can speak fluent Spanish and is the co-founder of Hispanic Republicans of Texas, a group that helps elect Hispanic candidates.

George P. Bush, also has pull within Hispanic Republican circles. Ana Navarro, who was the national Hispanic co-chairwoman for John McCain during his 2008 run, tweeted her enthusiasm that Bush filed to run for office.

“Wrote check for my friend, @georgepbush newly formed exploratory committee for office in TX. Young, pragmatic, Hispanic, just what GOP needs,” Navarro’s tweet read.

As George P. Bush files paperwork to become a candidate, he brings the culmination of a build-up to running for office that included campaigning for Mitt Romney this summer, NBC of Dallas-Fort Worth reports.

    Wasn't he arrested for stalking his former girlfriend and driving his car through her yard? We don't need a psycho like that in office.

  2. Kelly Stout

    Well, he's not a career politician, so that's nice. However, he is an heir to a political family. His uncle ruined America pretty bad. His Grandpa wasn't horrible though.

    The Bushes are part of an elitist, globalist bloodline that can literally be traced back several hundred years throughout the ruling "elite" of the past. There are many families like this & they intermarry to keep their bloodline "pure". They are all distantly related, & this includes most of today's royal families- ESPECIALLY the House of Windsor (i.e., Queen Elizabeth's clan).
    You see, long ago when the People starting rebelling against monarchy rule, these kings, queens, princes & princesses simply went underground & combined their resources to SECRETLY remain in power. They set up fake democracies & created the ILLUSION that the People have a Choice in who their "leaders" are. It is a verifiiable fact that ALL major candidates that the mainstream media/Establishment PRESStitutes shove in our faces are part of these elitist bloodlines. Al Gore AND John Kerry are cousins of George W. Bush. Remember that Obama is half-white- he is related to Dick Cheney while Mitt Romney also comes from a distant "royal" lineage.
    The same story goes for almost every so-called democratic republic around the world…

    IT'S ALL A THEATER OF POLY-TRICKS (i.e., politics)- A SCIENTIFIC 2-PARTY DICTATORSHIP!!!
    Notice how Obama has not only continued the fascist policies of the Bush regime (e.g., Patriot Act, which he COULD eliminate if he truly cared about Freedom), he has even amplified them (e.g., NDAA, just research the anti-American dangers of it). Aside from the petty & superficial, the exact same agenda rolls on! We still have the TSA & other Liberty-crushing measures, ongoing & escalating wars of conquest carried out in the name of "liberation", world policing, the phony war on drugs (research how our government brings in & runs most of the dope- read "Dope, Inc." & watch the CRUCIAL documentary "American Drug War" by Kevin Booth), self-destructive economic policies, torture camps AND MORE!… It is absolutely amazing how well the Obama propaganda machine has completely mesmerized & pacified so much of the once-unsettled masses.

    If we are to have a decent future, we must SOON manifest the Courage to confront the verifiable conspiracy FACTS- not speculative "theories"- behind the plight of the Human condition.
    After all, to escape enslavement, we must first be albe to PERCEIVE the chains that bind us…

    I wonder if the "P." in his name stands for Prescott, as in his grandfather Prescott Bush who helped finance 50% of the Nazi's steel production used for armaments in World War 2. Thankfully, this traitor was caught & charged for "trading with the enemy"…
    It doesn't take much research- but it does take some sanity & common sense- to learn how the Bush family is.
    DEEPLY involved in an agenda that defies the best interests of the U.S. & really all of Humanity.

    If we are to have a decent future, you better SOON manifest the Courage to start confronting the conspiracy FACTS- not "theories"- behind the plight of the Human condition.

    I wonder if the Kennedy in the last name of John, Robert, and Teddy Kennedy comes from their father Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. who was the ambassador to Britain from 1938-40. He continued to attempt to meet with Hitler and continued to insist on a policy of appeasement and insisted that the U.S. should not get involved in WWII while millions of people were being killed in Germany and the Nazi's were attacking western Europe.

    He also made his fortune in the unregulated stock market doing what would become considered insider trading.

  6. Linda Gonzalez

    Omg well I think we are smarter than that this just tells you ow republicans think we Hispanics are stupid and fall for this. Wow this just makes me sick!!

  7. Jaime Martin

    I wonder if the Smith in the last name of Danny comes from Joseph Smith, the false profit worshipped by Mitt Romney.

  8. Anonymous

    we don't need another one of them in office pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeese.

  9. Amanda Smith

    Like obama is any better. Obama has racked up more debt than all presidents combined. Unemplyment has went up too with obama

  10. Michael Dougherty

    Great just what this country needs another RINO. Let's hope that he doesn't win and we can nip this thing in the bud.

  11. Nancy Hutchins

    He comes from good stock, his grandparent's are good people so is his dad. Why must this nation hold the whole Bush family responsible for the GW Bush presidency? Jeb Bush would be a viable candidate for President. He is not his brother and this nephew is not his uncle. It is 7th grade junior high logic to expect a whole family to be like one member. The only mistake I see this young man making is campaigning for Mitt Romney – Repubs should forget party loyalty and step forward and make a change, this young man just might do it.

  12. Jason Kelly

    Once again the republicans fail to understand that it's not the color of your skin, but the content of your character and this guy's a psycho from a family of psychos.

  13. Don Doyle

    Amanda, Try reading some books rather than getting all your "facts" from Faux news channel. You are an Idiot!

    @Amanda Smith
    Don't be an IDIOT! Is those damn Republicans who in 8 years time took the country's SURPLUS and burned it down to ashes. Not to mentions 2 full on wars, one of which was accountant for and another was out of pure stupidity. Add to all that a – TOTAL deregulation of the banking system promoting filthy and greedy corporate "NOOBS" to create a the Housing Bubble. Shall I go on? How about all that Republic MESS which equated to a TOTAL meltdown our financial system leaving MILLIONS without jobs -the auto industry to name a few. So for every year that a TOTAL IDIOT, AKA Bush, ran the country, the next president has 3 to 4 years to undo the damage. Name a president in history who had this daunting task? And now you crack down on a Chicago lawyer who had the actual BALLS to lift the country? Ignorant… total IGNORANT!

    Danny Smith The decision to go to war or not go to war usually depends on how we need to protect US interests. The fact that we had not gotten into WW II by 1940 had nothing to do with JP Kennedy's views on appeasement. We got in when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Wilson didn't get us into WWI until years later because the influence of US business. The CIA's involvement in helping to over throw social governments in Central and South America, were also to protect the investments of US businesses.

    Regarding how Kennedy made his money – if it was unregulated, then you are holding him accountable for something that didn't become a law until much later. FYI – W Bush dumped his Harken stock after the SEC warned him he would be subject to the ACTUAL Insider trading laws – but got off because of daddy's connections. Seems like a double standard considering Martha Stewart went to jail from profiting less than 10% of the profit Bush made on Harken.

  17. John Mercuro

    @Amanda – you shouldn't believe everything you hear on right wing shows. That fact is a misnomer because in addition to any programs Obama proposed, it also includes the all programs from all the previous Presidents that are still on the books. We are still paying for those unfunded programs. For those government contractors that benefit from those programs – think of it as the Gift that keeps on giving.

    So when Democrats say, some of that debt was created by Bush, they aren't talking about the debt Bush ran up in the 8 years he was in office, they are talking about his programs we are still paying for today – that are now being tagged to Obama.

    Even though one war is over and the other is winding down, Conservatives do not want any Defense cuts. That doesn't make any sense. Yes, we still need a strong defense but we shouldn't be spending what we did when we were fighting those two wars. But it goes beyond Defense, the No Child Left Behind was an unfunded – flawed Bush mandate that has not been rescinded.

    If the GOP controlled house is concerned about the fiscal cliff, they can start by cutting those Bush programs.

  18. John Mercuro

    His mom, Columbia Bush – was born in León, Guanajuato, Mexico

  19. Patrick Frye

    John Mercuro What specific programs do you speak of? That might make an interesting article.

    Also, No Child Left Behind was written in the Clinton years by House Representatives John Boehner (R-OH), George Miller (D-CA), and Senators Judd Gregg (R-NH) and Ted Kennedy (D-MA). It was then passed under Bush. Any blame has to be bipartisan and even Bill Clinton agrees on that: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/02/bill-clinton-bl/

    Amanda Smith Are you serious? So, someone messing up their finances for 8 years doesn't expect that all their bad decisions will cause a ripple effect – that goes on and on???? Cuz that is exactly what happened. Bush started the Avalanche- you go try stopping one – see how long it takes you and how much destruction is left in it's wake – that's why we are where we are – Obama did not put this in motion and it's hard to stop a moving train/Avalanche –

  24. Denise Treesh

    I get your point – However, if you remember John F. Kennedy was on the opposite point of view of his father – he was a free thinker – maybe got that from mommy

    I also know – the brain gets mostly wired by our "mothers" (read Becoming Attached by Robert Karen for further explanation and any parent should want to know how the brain gets wired) – read up on it – anyway, dishonestly seems to be in the family and apples don't fall far from trees with the Bush's who are not exactly your average citizens – I am extravagant according to my family – but she has me beat hands down – and I never lied to customs – TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Jeb Bush said Monday that his wife misled U.S. Customs officials about $19,000 in new clothing and jewelry she brought into the country because she didn't want him to know how much she had spent on her five-day Paris shopping trip.

  25. Jeffuu signs

    Amanda Smith those are GOP talking points and as you saw, they didn't work….. one of the effects of recession is high unemployment..Obama was ready to work but do you know how many job bills the GOP blocked in the house?

  26. John Mercuro

    Patrick Frye The legislation was proposed by President George W. Bush on January 23, 2001 and he signed it the following January. It's a Bush program.

    Sorry Pat, but I'm not a paid journalist. I was responding to Amanda's comment on my lunch break. A full analysis of every program Bush proposed and signed into law would take a few weeks. Maybe you could suggest that to the Inquisitr. I was only using that as an example to explain to the uninformed. Since you didn't comment on the point of my comment, you must agree with it.

  27. Tanya Dmitrieva

    What about the Kennedys? I mean we can't even get together as a country and decide we just do't want these corrupt people. I mean do we decide oh being a politician you have to have family in the system. I would say the more different people you have the more exposure and the more people that have to be paid off and it could weaken their control on us. Nobody can say politicians get the job because they want to make things better. They do it because it pays them well and dont have to work and they can pass laws to benefit them and their cronies

  28. Tanya Dmitrieva

    trading with the enemy? The enemy was Communism. That system had murdered 35 millon innocent people, before HItler came along. BUt it was behind the iron curtain and so now we know it happened does that mean Germany was not the bad guy?

  29. Tanya Dmitrieva

    I don't know why we don't put up a wall of protest to keep them out of office, because the Bushes are filthy rich and all they can do is pass laws to protect their money and their buddies. I mean imagine if you could ve voted in county commissioner and only people in your family you could see the corruption.

  30. Tanya Dmitrieva

    How many people died because George Bush lied about 9/11? The guy committed treason and that means he should have been executed. I mean how can someone walk around after doing that? He gets 200,000 for speaking engagments and should have been hanged

  31. Tanya Dmitrieva

    Kennedys are still in politics and we know how corrupt they were. But I believe the voting system is totally rigged, because you never see a third party person win. When David Duke won in Louisiana the kosher boys decided we aint' having that, because they will totally screw us, so it was at that time they came out with the diebold machine. So we go to vote which is the only thing we can do where we think we have any control and the truth be known if someone they don't want runs they have diebold machines installed.

  32. Patrick Frye

    John Mercuro Could you please name any Bush programs off the top of your head that are large enough to contribute a dangerous amount to the deficit and are not bipartisan? TARP is one and that continues to be supported by Obama. Really, the only thing I can think of is the Medicare drug benefit of 2003 which is hypocritically still supported while bashing Obamacare: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/09/18/gop-2012-candidates-opposed-to-repealing-unfunded-medicare-drug-benefit/ Apparently, Democrats do not want to repeal since it's popular with seniors. They also had the opportunity from 2008 to 2010 under Obama when they had a majority in both the House and Senate.

    I'm not here to argue, but I did want to provide facts instead of partisan arguments.

    Ted Kennedy was the biggest backer of NCLB. If we use your metric even Fast and Furious could be blamed on Bush since it was proposed under the Bush administration, cancelled when they realized it was a bad idea, and then restarted under Obama.

    The Republicans have plenty of blame for the debt, since they controlled the Presidency and all of Congress from 2001 to 2006. In 2001 the deficit started at $158 billion. From 2000 to 2004 Federal revenue was dropping sharply and spending was increasing just as sharply so the deficit peaked at $413 billion. After that the Bush tax cuts began taking effect, Federal revenue went up, and thus by 2006 the deficit was down to $161 billion. The Democrats then took control of both the House and Senate after the 2006 elections and thus in 2007 the deficit spiked to $459 billion. Then to $1.4 trillion and so on.

    As everyone can probably guess by now I'm not a big fan of either party.

  33. Andrew Caldwell

    Bush ignored threats from al queda for almost a year when he took offince. clinton told him the day he took office that they were the biggest threat to america and are planning an attack on large buildings in the u.s. with planes. bush ignored this saying that al queada poses no threat. and when 9/11 happened he still didn't do anything he sat there and was scared. his small goverment did not know a damn thing that was going on and air traffic control was missguided.

  34. Andrew Caldwell

    also remember that the twin towers were hit while bush was in office. even though he kind of ignored the threats, thats part of the reason national debt went up. i mean it takes a while to recover from an attack like that.

  35. Tanya Dmitrieva

    Danny Smith We've had a lot of politicians executed by the Jews. They do it blame it on Arabs like so many of the airplanes they have bombed and Arabs got blamed. But Israeli companies provide security at airports and it is they who can easily slip bombs onto planes. They will also get jobs loading the luggage. So think they want to get rid of someone and they are the security and they load the luggage and they put bombs on planes. The Arabs have no way to do this.

  36. Brian Watson

    Amanda Smith You are wrong about Obama and deficit spending. Bimbo Ronald Reagan set the all-time record, lining the pockets of crony capitalists.

  37. Brian Watson

    George P. Bush operates a "consulting firm." And what might he be advising his clients about? He and his family are a disgrace, especially to Rice University.

  38. Brian Watson

    The elder George Bush taught at Rice while I was there, but I don't know much about what he had to offer. As is the case with all academic institutions, funding and related politics are a constant focus. I just think that the Bushes were given too much credit relative to whatever contributions they made in attracting resources and students wise enough to use them effectively. When George P. Bush graduated from Rice in 1998, school publications covered the Bush family's presence in excess, but said nothing at all about their involvement in the attempt on Reagan's life in 1981, their arrogance, their progenitors' involvement with German industrial firms prior to WWII, and George W. Bush's tendency to fail at everything except killing people (his girlfriend's fetus, death row inmates, Iraqi civilians, etc.). I tire of corruption and do not like seeing the name and reputation of the university tied to those evil, incompetent heirs to power.

  39. David Edwards

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts Brian. I appreciate your forthrightness. This is the first time I have heard any reference to a Bush involvement in the assasination attempt on Reagan. Had breakfast with Jeff today. Let us know when you come this way!

  40. Brian Watson

    Old man Kennedy's net worth jumped from $4 million in 1928 to $100 million in 1935. After he was notified of the pending crash in 1929, he sold most of his holdings, only to buy most of them back for pennies on the dollar as he worked to reestablish capital markets. He also made millions with bootleg liquor, movies, and retailing. In a way, it has been said, he signed his sons' death warrants by getting so involved in criminal activity. Did the Kennedys really kill Marilyn Monroe? Probably. But what about the beneficial activities that the family has promoted, like the Special Olympics and the Peace Corps?
