George P. Bush told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that although he wishes his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, would enter the 2012 race for the White House, he doesn’t count him out as a future presidential contender.
“I think that time will only continue to benefit not only my uncle’s record [former President George W. Bush], but my dad’s opportunity to run for higher office,” the younger Bush said, while answering whether the notion of “Bush fatigue” has weighed heavily on his father’s electoral considerations. “Make no mistake about it, I think a lot of people sorely miss and would relish some sort of return of that type of approach to leading our country.”
“It’s not do or die in this cycle by any means,” Bush added. “My dad’s a young guy.”
