Pierce Bush, the grandson of former President George H.W. Bush and the latest member of the infamous political dynasty to run for office, lost a Republican congressional primary on Tuesday night.
Bush was running to represent Texas’ 22nd District, which covers suburban Houston. Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls and businesswoman Kathaleen Wall came in first and second in the primary, and will compete in a May runoff election. Bush came in third.
Pierce Bush is the son of Neil Bush, George W. Bush’s brother. One of Jeb’s sons, George P. Bush, is currently Texas’ Land Commissioner.
The defeat represents the first for a member of the Bush family running for office in the state of Texas for over 40 year, and the decline of the once-invincible political dynasty. Bush lost a primary for a seat in a district that overwhelmingly voted for Senator Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican Primary, suggesting that the Bush family has worn out its welcome among Republicans who aren’t even hardcore original Trump supporters.
Bush ran with a mixed approach to President Trump, declining to style himself as a Trump Republican in the manner in which his opponents did.
The Bush family’s track record as previous stewards of the Republican Party is a dismal failure at the very best. George W. Bush oversaw the most disastrous foreign policy error in American history, opened the borders to unprecedented levels of legal and illegal immigration, and orchestrated a bailout of corrupt Wall Street elites after they crashed the economy.
Members of the Bush family should accept that they’ve had their run and ride off into the sunset of national politics and the Republican Party.
Michigan Republicans Demand Inquiry Into Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Murderous COVID-19 Nursing Home Policies
She is as guilty as Cuomo.
Republican lawmakers in the state of Michigan are pushing back against Governor Gretchen Whitmer for her genocidal COVID-19 policies that have resulted in the needless deaths of countless elderly individuals.
State senator Jim Runestad is leading the charge to hold Whitmer accountable in a similar manner that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now being held accountable for implementing similarly murderous policies in his state.
“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy placed patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” said Runestad in a press release.
“Questions remain regarding the accuracy of data, compliance with CDC guidelines and compliance with our state’s Freedom of Information Act. There is a critical need for a full investigation into these matters,” he added.
Runestad believes a federal investigation is needed into Whitmer’s actions because of how her COVID-19 approach has lacked transparency.
“Michiganders understand there are many, many similarities between Gov. Whitmer’s handling of the virus and Gov. Cuomo’s: their unilateral overreach (both struck down by the courts), their allusion to vague metrics and data, their questionable vaccine distribution plans, and their outright defiance to losing their emergency powers. The alarming similarities with New York raise serious questions about what really happened in Michigan,” Runestad said.
Runestad and other Michigan Republican lawmakers have sent letters to Attorney General Dana Nessel and the Department of Justice demanding accountability, but Democrats are not likely to police their own behavior.
Big League Politics has reported on how Whitmer doubled down on her policies to murder elderly nursing home patients by housing COVID-19 sufferers next to them:
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed a bipartisan bill on Friday that would have protected the elderly and vulnerable by banning COVID-19 patients from being quarantined in nursing homes.
“Protecting the health and safety of nursing home residents and their staff continues to be a top priority for my administration,” Governor Whitmer said while announcing her veto.
“Senate Bill 956 is nothing more than a political game that would relocate vulnerable seniors without any requirement for consent, doctor’s approval, or notification to patients and their families. It’s time for the Republican legislature to get serious about protecting our most vulnerable and addressing the public health and economic crisis faced by our state. We look forward to continuing our work with stakeholders and legislators on the task force to develop real solutions that make sense for Michigan seniors and their families,” she added.
Senate Republicans are firing back at Whitmer for her cruel and callous decision to veto the common sense legislation.
“In a mean-spirited move, Gov. Whitmer announced she vetoed a plan that would have prevented COVID-19 patients from entering our nursing homes,” they wrote.
While Michigan Republicans may be putting an effort toward pushing back against Whitmer, she is not likely to be held accountable until she is up for re-election in 2022.
