George W. Returns to Politics to Lobby for Jeb!

“It’s not going to be a habit.”

Dubyah came out of the ex-POTUS protection program Monday night to campaign for his younger brother, Jeb Bush, saying Jeb!™ was “a man of deep and humble faith that reveals itself through good works, not loud words.” Besides completing the occasional painting and the 2014 Ice Bucket Challenge, former President George W. Bush has lived a life mostly outside the public eye since he left the White House seven years ago. With is Texan twang, the former president lobbied for his brother in North Charleston. “Americans are angry and frustrated,” the older Bush said, “but we do not need someone in the Oval Office who mirrors and inflames our frustration. … Strength is not empty rhetoric. It is not bluster. It is not theatrics. Real strength, strength of purpose, comes from integrity and character.”

But can the former president do what $100 million couldn’t do in New Hampshire and propel Jeb! to a good finish in South Carolina? Sixteen years ago, South Carolina helped Bush secure the nomination, and support for the Bush brand is still strong there. Still, don’t expect the rest of the Bush family to carry Jeb’s campaign. Bush 43 said in an interview that his return to politics, “It’s not going to be a habit.”
