This is for my Rice friends. Somehow, the Owlmanac missed this:
Even though we just trudged out of the last Bush era, everyone wants to know when George P. Bush, Jeb Bush’s eldest son and the family’s fourth-generation standard-bearer, is going to run for something. But P., as he’s known, has bigger things on his mind. He’s thinking about parachuting onto the frontlines of his uncle’s War on Terror.
Lt. Junior Grade Bush, 33, joined the Navy Reserve in 2007 as an intelligence officer. The Navy recently told him, like thousands of others, that the two ongoing wars required him to go active-duty overseas, potentially in Iraq or Afghanistan. “It’s been communicated to me that it’s not a question of ‘if,’ it’s a question of ‘when,’” Bush told The Daily Beast. “It’s just a matter of time.”
He’s known as P.? Since when? P. seems like a particularly terrible nickname.
With his uncle and dad in semi-retirement, P. has become the de facto keeper of what his grandfather once called the “legacy thing.”
I know I am burying the lede here: George P.’s going overseas. He’s building his political resume. He may even run for office.
Just what the world needs most: Another politician named George Bush. Right?
In all seriousness… eh, nevermind, I can’t be too serious about “P.”
There’s way too much material to work with.
Still, good luck to him– George P. is doing something his uncle never did.
