Next to Willard Romney and his right wing buddies, GW Bush looks almost moderate. Almost. On a couple of things. Maybe.
Romney has bent over backwards to please conservatives, and in doing so, he's backed himself right into a very uncomfortable corner, and Nephew George P. knows it:
(CNN) – George P. Bush, nephew of George W. Bush and grandson of George H. W. Bush, said he has “reservations” and “concerns” about the Republican Party’s rhetoric on immigration.
In a sit-down with CNN reporters and producers Tuesday, Bush said that he and other Republicans wish the party would “return to George W. Bush on this issue,” referring to the former president’s bipartisan push to reform the nation’s immigration policy.
But with Election Day fast approaching, Bush said it’s probably too late for Republicans to pivot away from the party’s conservative base and seize the political high ground on the immigration issue.
“I am a pessimist as to the timing right now,” said Bush, a co-founder of the Hispanic Republicans of Texas and a fluent Spanish speaker.
As for running for office, Bush said he has “no specific plans” to do that, saying, “I have been asked to look at offices in Texas" but that his wife “would be perfectly content if I didn’t run.”
Please. No more Bushes. PLEASE.
