Moms, got to love them.
 
2014-03-05 02:56:40 PM  
Based on her choice of mates I'm not sure I have any faith in her judgement
 
2014-03-05 03:00:24 PM  
Which country?
 
2014-03-05 03:26:17 PM  
Jeb probably won't make it, but they're grooming George P. now. Watch out in 12-20 years.
 
2014-03-05 03:27:04 PM  
My mom says I'm cool.

Can we at least wait until Pappy and his children are dead first. I'm not wishing ill on GW, Jeb, Neil, Jerome, or Tito mind you, but we can at least put up the facade that there's no such thing as an inherited aristocracy in this country.

They're just going to keep pumping out "George ?"'s until they run out of alphabet.
 
2014-03-05 04:09:33 PM  
And who better to objectively rate a person's abilities than their own mother?
 
2014-03-05 04:10:53 PM  
Look you crazy old biatch... my mom says I'M the best qualified person in the country to be POTUS. Are you calling her a liar?

She tells me nice things about you too.
 
2014-03-05 04:22:36 PM  
The White House has air conditioning, so it will work out well for them.
 
2014-03-05 04:22:40 PM  
That's so sad, how did Barbara Bush die? Oh, she isn't dead? Then I don't give a fark what that rotten mummified vagina of hatred has to say.
 
2014-03-05 04:22:45 PM  
*rolls eyes*

OK, Mrs. Bush...
 
2014-03-05 04:23:28 PM  
It never ceases to amaze me that anyone buys this despicable woman's disingenuous Aunt Bea act. She's about as close to a real Lady Macbeth as you're ever likely to see.
 
2014-03-05 04:23:28 PM  
Well, the economy has started to recover so we do need another republican to come crash it and who better than a Bush.

How is it inherited if they still have to campaign and get elected?
 
2014-03-05 04:24:43 PM  
Didn't she say recently that she didn't want Jeb to run? Or am I misremembering?

A Mister Gore from Tennessee objects to your assumption that getting elected necessarily means you have the job.
 
2014-03-05 04:26:25 PM  
The Venn diagram of people cheering this statement and people who look at Hilary Clinton and say "NO MORE DYNASTIES" bears a curious resemblance to a spicy meatball
 
2014-03-05 04:27:44 PM  
That's some funny shiat.
 
2014-03-05 04:27:54 PM  
I'm led to believe that her birth canal has a sign a la the Notre Dame locker room exit that says "Do Whatever You Can To Screw Up the Country Today."
 
2014-03-05 04:28:30 PM  
As opposed to what. my dog?
 
2014-03-05 04:28:36 PM

Meh. If there's one person I won't begrudge supporting Jeb Bush, his mom gets a pass.
 
2014-03-05 04:30:58 PM  

SHUT UP YOU OLD COONT!

 
2014-03-05 04:31:24 PM  
I'll vote for her son if Barbara will tell the country where her husband was when JFK was murdered.

George doesn't remember.

I remember where I was when the Challenger exploded. I remember where I was when 9-11 occurred. I remember where I was when Charo's red tube top almost fell down on live TV in the middle of the night.

You remember the important things.

Oh? Are you using some sort of alternate definition of "inherited"? Please, share with the class.

Yes.  She said "We've had enough Bushes."

Yes, and the Kennedies got their jobs by hard work and personal sacrifice.
 
2014-03-05 04:32:08 PM  
Yeah, I'm still not going to listen to someone who blindly follows what a random obit tells her to do.
 
2014-03-05 04:33:52 PM  
The Bush name is dead when it comes to national politics.  They can thank GWB for that.

Even if Jeb was a good candidate, his brother's baggage will sink any chances he's got.
 
2014-03-05 04:33:55 PM  
She is untroubled in her beautiful mind by the fact that her family is further along the non compos mentis scale than a latrinas-dwelling rodent.
 
2014-03-05 04:35:12 PM  
Why does anyone care what a relative has to say? Do you actually expect someone's mother to be unsupportive of their child? When they interview someone's wife, do they really expect them to be supportive of their husband? This isn't a Bush family thing, mind you. This is a media and journalism thing. Unless the family is estranged, there's no point in interviewing them for a 'different' perspective since they're going to support or parrot their relative/spouse/whatever.
 
2014-03-05 04:35:29 PM

Well, there's a difference between saying "He's perfectly qualified for the job and I think he'd do marvelously." and saying "There's no one more qualified for the job in the entire country."

One is being nice and supportive.  The other is just straight up delusional.

You misunderstood her, she was promoting pubic shaving.

You're certainly not asserting that there was no primary campaign, primary election, general campaign, or general election that all had to be won in order to succeed to office, because that would be stupid.

Well sure, that's delusional. But why ask Jeb Bush's mother to begin with? This isn't even softball journalism, this is tee-ball journalism.

Mere cynicism isn't really edgy anymore. You should get a fedora and some white sunglasses. Maybe a big, bushy beard, too.

Because she might say something like "There's no one more qualified in the entire country" and people will flip their shiat and post it to Fark.

Maybe.

That's not journalism, that's tee-ball trolling.
