    "At age 91, President Bush is retired from politics," McGrath said in an email. "He naturally did a few things to help Jeb, but those were the 'exceptions that proved the rule.'"

    It could be he thinks Trump is a good idea, but he just doesn't want to get involved. He is retired. The press is just piling on. It wouldn't have the same ring if they left Bush 41 out.

    The Bush' are fiercely loyal to one another. The taunting and verbal abuse Trump delivered to Jeb is the only reason these two are sitting it out. It is perfectly understandable. Many people say one thing and when they are alone in the voting booth, do another.

    "these two" Again. Bush 41 doesn't have much to say about anything these days and should not be included in those opposing Trump, unless an excited imagination is more important than evident fact.

    I don't know if you include Barbara Bush as a Bush, but Barbara Bush said openly to the press that she didn't want to see Jeb Bush run for the president.

    Former first lady Barbara Bush has some advice for her son Jeb about running for president: Don't.

    Mrs. Bush told C-SPAN that the country should look to other families beyond "Kennedys, Clintons, Bushes" to take charge of the White House.

    "If we can't find more than two or three families to run for higher office, that's silly," she said, "because there are great governors and great eligible people to run." She added: "There are a lot of ways to serve, and being president is not the only one, and I would hope that someone else would run."

    Last five election cycles:

    1. Romney/Obama
    2. McCain/Obama
    3. Bush 43/Kerry
    4. Bush 43/Gore
    5. Dole/Clinton

    ---------

    6. Bush 41/Clinton
    7. Reagan/Mondale (Bush 41 VP)
    8. Reagan/Carter (Bush 41 VP)

    I think we've had enough of the Bushes with their "acts of love", their interventionist policies, their free trade treason NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA ETC. crap. If they only care about our party when the party is doing their bidding instead of the party doing the bidding of the people of our country, they can all take their self-serving policies that have truly destroyed our nation and hike it back to Houston or Kennebunkport or Dallas or wherever in the hell they're really from. They've made it clear through their political lives that in spite of their well-written "fake-out" speeches to the contrary, none of them gave a hoot, not one whit, about the United States or the American People.

    From that link:

    Barbara Bush wasn’t always so sanguine about her eldest son’s bid to become the third Bush to hold the presidency.

    “We’ve had enough Bushes,” she declared in 2013 — only to have to walk back the comment once her son started angling to join the 2016 field of Republicans. She has since become an enthusiastic supporter.


    “If there’s anybody more powerful in my family than my mother, then I don’t know who it is,” Jeb Bush said Thursday night.
