Friday Open Thread: NextGen Bush
Is America ready for the next generation of Bush family politicians? Here comes George P. Bush, son of Jeb and Columba Bush, and brother of Noelle and John W. Bush. He has one thing in common with his uncle GW: a "youthful indiscretion" which didn't make it to the criminal justice system. (police report here.)
George P. Bush might be a hunkalicious young Republican, but he still seems a bit creepy. So TSG wasn't too surprised to learn that "P" was involved ina troubling 1994 incident described in this Metro-Dade Police Department report. On December 31, 1994, Bush showed up at 4 AM at the Miami home of a former girlfriend. He proceeded to break into the house via the woman's bedroom window, and then began arguing with his ex's father. Bush, then a Rice University student, soon fled the scene. But he returned 20 minutes later to drive his Ford Explorer across the home's front lawn, leaving wide swaths of burned grass in his wake. Young Bush avoided arrest when the victims declined to press charges.
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
