Thank goodness at least one GOP Great Hispanic Hope isn't just another Cuban white guy, but is instead a genuine Mexican mestizo who is succeeding despite his lack of White Privilege and the virulent hate directed at his ancestors

George P. Bush

No more Bushes! The whole Bush family is a family of wheeler-dealers.

Or, he paid a coyote a few grand to smuggle him through them

George Bush III?

O/T, sorry, but I wonder if you've been following Andrew Sullivan's recent discussion of steroids, Steve, in which he seems to affirm many of the observations you've made about him and his steroid usage of the years.

Lookin' tanned, rested and ready. That's the way we like our Republican Presidential candidates, fresh off the set of Dynasty.

He looks just a bit...crazy.

Why don't racialists give the Bushes some credit? They always point out that elites preach diversity but never bring into their lives. Here are some elites living up to their ideals! hear, hear

One can tell by the look in his eyes that he's the genuine article.

Wow! Finally! A real mestizo!!!! I somehow doubt a real mestizo would get very far in politics in America Latina but hey, this is the land of opportunity baby! Besides, I'm sure he appreciates and doesn't harbor any resentment.

So Jeb Bush's son is a Hispanic Hispanic, and not a White Hispanic like George Zimmerman ?

Maya said...

Is that just a really unfortunate picture, or is he a bit, you know, waiting for Superman?

You think you could cut a little slack to those of us who, for one, would not like to welcome our new Hispanic overlords and don't fixate about which of them is which?

Looks like a WASP with a spray tan.

why does P always look mentally 'off' in his pictures? I think it's the eyes but something seems extremely off about him.

Who is Mr. Whitesmileyteeth in this photo?

And regarding Hispanic STEM experts, a good source is here.

Check out the names on the page listing the owner execs, editors, design and admin employees. One can find there many traditional latina/o surnames such as Lo, Bogart, Hamilton, Roberts, etc.

Bad thoughts, bad thoughts!

Does he spend time in a tanning salon to make himself look more stereotypically Hispanic? Because I've seen pictures of his mom, she looks mostly European.

And his facial features look basically white as well, rather than Amerindian.

He also seems to be always wearing a 5 o'clock shadow - to make his face look darker?

In this picture he looks even more imbecilic than his uncle GW.

Question of the day: who's whiter, George P. Bush or Enrique Peña Nieto?

vandelay said...

He already looks exactly like how the South Park guys would draw him.

Alte said...

I like what you've done with the title.

ATBOTL said...

He looks like a tanned white man.

The GOP base hates the Bushes so much now, I think there is no chance a Bush will ever be nominated to run for president again.

Whenever Jeb or George P. are mentioned on conservative web sites, the comments are venomous.

George Psycho Bush

Is there some law that every male Bush must be named George?

The sad thing is, marrying into Hispanics actually raised the IQ of this offspring.

This is the look that MSNBC hosts get in their eye when they see pics of Obama.

It looks like a spray tan. It probably is a spray tan.

I wouldn't be all that surprised if P had focus groups picking out his socks, or telling him how to pronounce "nuclear" in Missouri.

From what I've seen of Jeb Bush's wife, she doesn't look Mestizo, which explains why her kid doesn't either.

Real Mexicans are not noted for heavy beards, though Isuppose some Spanish beard genes must be floating around there.

What is it about the Bush family that makes them such a force in the Republican establishment. Is it a gay mafia thing?

Farbar Beeston said...

It is pathetic to see how Whites, who should know better, are bending over backwards to find a lively, vibrant, diverse who will give them credibility and fight their battles for them.

I used to comment over at a very popular Tea Party blog. They are good, decent people who understand how their country is being destroyed and how they are being dispossessed. And yet they allow the Left to define them as racists and they are constantly turning hopeful eyes to some Black or Hispanic tool who they think they can support and have a twofer: One, it proves they have diverse friends and can't be racists; Two, they abdicate responsibility for fighting their own battles because the Left has forbidden them to do so.

Whites will be on the road back when they begin to openly support right-wing, White men as their leaders. Until then, the Left will win victory after victory.

When I explained this over at the Tea Party blog, I was tolerated for a while, but then they banned me. This kind of denial is literally insane. They are playing the Left's game.

Wasn't there a whisper of a William Kennedy Smith type problem that caused him to disappear from the 2004 campaign some time after his "I am a proud latino--my uncle is running for president," commercial?

diversity means more white people ruling over colored people, and with perfect legitimacy, give up a bit of US to gain the whole world!
now only if the stupid prolish party could see the subtlety..

Dennis Dale said...

My God, look at that face! It just screams mediocrity. A face like that makes schoolyard bullying somewhat more understandable.

He has that unsettling thing where the expression in the eyes doesn't match the expression on the face.

He looks just like a 'regular Bush', but with the 'tar-brush' (if I am allowed to use that arcane dodgy term), run over him.
A Tar-Bush from the Sonoran Desert perhaps?

I would be extremely disappointed if I ended up with non-white grandchildren. I remember George Sr. referring to them as the "little brown ones" suggesting he was less than thrilled.

The Bush family: proof that regression to the mean sometimes, pendulum like, swings beyond the mean.

Shouldn't the caption be "Jorge P. Bush"?

Dutch Boy said...

There is something in his eyes that is reminiscent of former Sen. John Tunney of California (of whom it was said that when you look in his eyes, there's nobody home).

Dennis Dale said...

He looks like Ben Stiller's disabled, Hispanic brother.

Anonymous said...

Spot on. White with a tan or simply an olive skinned Caucasian. May be George stephanopolous' brother. Unless his mom is Amerindian, he is not mestizo. His facial features are very Caucasian, he's a castizo at most.
Steve, if you're looking for a genuine GOP mestizo check out Abel Maldonado from central California.

I think you have to look at this Bush "dynasty" thing as an accident borne of GHWB's career.

Bush Sr. made it to the WH, not by charisma or ideological purity, but by being a competent technocrat who handled a lot of charges with an almost neurotic level of modesty.

He also assiduously cultivated personal friendships, pumping out thousands of 'thank you' and Xmas greeting cards. His joke, that he ran for President by campaigning one friend at a time, was fairly accurate.

In short, GHW, though voted out, left office with a level of professional and even popular respect and goodwill almost never seen in such a circumstance.

It made it easy for many to believe that he passed on these qualities to his sons-- or at least their handlers.

George W. may well account for much of why Romney lost-- he is toxic to the GOP brand, let alone the Bush name.

Jeb today is bitchy and brittle, and has the swollen look of a repressed-homo Pentecostal tv minister.

This George P. character-- well. We'll see if TX bites. Or if anyone wants to take him higher.

I doubt that. Godspeed GHWB, but when he passes, there won't be any more chits to cash in for the Bush brand.

In 1952, Utt was first elected to the 83rd Congress. He polled 106,972 votes (63%) against the Democrat Lionel Van Deerlin, who drew 62,779 votes (37%). Utt had no serious challengers in what became an increasingly "safe" seat for him. For instance, in the heavily Democratic year of 1958, he polled 152,855 votes (58%) to Democrat T.R. Boyett's 109,794 votes (42%).

In 1962, when Richard M. Nixon lost the governorship to incumbent Democrat Edmund G. "Pat" Brown, Sr., Utt won reelection with 133,737 (68.5%) to Democrat Burton Shamsky's 61,393 (31.5%). In the wake of Barry Goldwater's landslide defeat in 1964, Utt still polled 65 percent in his district. In 1966, when Ronald W. Reagan blocked a third term for "Pat" Brown, Utt received 73.1 percent in his district (his strongest showing ever). In 1968, when Nixon was elected president, Utt drew a similar vote of 72.5%. That turned out to have been his last election, for he died in office before completing the 1969–1971 term.

Utt was an outspoken conservative; one of his unachieved goals was to remove the United States from the United Nations.

He voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1960, 1964, and 1968, and against the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

In 1963, he claimed that "a large contingent of barefooted Africans" might be training in Georgia as part of a United Nations military exercise to take over the United States. In 1963, he also claimed that black Africans may be training in Cuba to invade the United States.[1]

In 1964, he had been a strong supporter of fellow Republican Barry Goldwater for the presidency. Goldwater had also voted against the 1964 civil rights law on constitutional and libertarian grounds but later repudiated his position.

He died at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, of a heart attack, which he had sustained while attending church. Utt is interred at Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana.

Utt was succeeded in the 35th Congressional District by fellow conservative Republican John G. Schmitz. Schmitz won the seat for a full term in the 1970 general election, aided in part by the presence of Governor Reagan, who was winning a second term. Schmitz polled 192,765 votes (67 percent) to Democrat Thomas B. Lenhart's 87,019 (30.7 percent). The turnout in the district continued to grow along with the Orange County population. (Schmitz later abandoned the GOP on grounds that the party had grown "too liberal." He was the American Independent Party presidential nominee in 1972 but won no states in his opposition to Richard Nixon's second term.)

The Bush family is like a cancer to the conservative movement. I wish these cancer RINOs would just go away.

I think Lucius's take is spot on. For political donors, the Bush's were thought of as amiable, moderate, and willing to cut a deal. George W. Bush, who slashed taxes on the rich and is still pushing for more cheap labour 4 years after leaving office, did nothing to disappoint his patrons, but they're leery of backing anymore of the Bush's because the brand's reputation has been poisoned.

W's recent speech advocating amnesty may be an attempt to show his family's patrons that he's still willing to push for their policies, perhaps as a way to get them to back his nephew's political aspirations in Texas. If George P. Bush fails to gain traction as a Hispanic in Texas, then the family's done - at least for a while.

To me, the notion that Jeb and W were pushing for more immigration in order to boost GPB's career prospects always seemed a little unlikely. It's just what their backers wanted in exchange for contributions. Now, however, the two go hand-in-hand. They still need to advocate for cheap labor, but identifying the famnily with support for amnesty makes doubly good sense while running George P. Bush in Texas.

Well, Republicans lost in every county that had 50 percent or higher Mexican population and won heavily in white counties in Texas that bordered Oklahoma. They will never learn. Harris County Texas the third largest county Obama win in a tight race, Houston has blacks, hispanics and even asians. The nice suburbs went for Romeny and more likely don't have more than 25 percent of the above groups mention. The Bushes are pushing Texas in 15 years to swing state status and some of the white population near the large metro areas will start moving to Oklahoma and so forth. In fact not all the people going to Texas from states like California are white many are Mexican and some are black and some asian like whites they are in serach of cheaper housing.
