THE THIRD BUSH SAID, "THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION":

A push to make Jeb the third Bush in the White House is just a dream - at least until 2016  (THOMAS M. DEFRANK, 2/12/12, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)

[T]the second son of George H.W. and Barbara Bush is everything Romney is not: smooth, reliably conservative, with a natural bedside manner.

Two weeks ago at the Alfalfa Club dinner, an annual gathering of the bipartisan crème de la crème of the Beltway establishment, Jeb brought down the house as he accepted the clubs whimsical nomination for President.

In the presence of his father and brother, Jeb touted his qualifications as the governor of a large and important state.

In my family that makes me an underachiever, he cracked.

During family squabbles, he added, he'll sometimes ask, Who put you in charge?

Dad says, The American people,' he deadpanned. George says, 'The Supreme Court.'

The star turn had some Republican attendees wistful for what might have been.

People walked out saying, Too bad its not Jeb,' one noted.
