Former President George W. Bush says his brother Jeb is the best candidate for president in 2016. “He’s got a proven track record. He was a governor of a big state. He’s very articulated. He bends at the elbows and waist.”
Bush made the comments on the eve of the opening of his presidential library – the first library that will contain no written material.
Producers of the HBO series “Game of Thrones” are being criticized for using a dummy head in the likeness of ex-President George Bush in a scene showing decapitated heads on spikes.
“It’s not a choice, not a political statement!” one of the writers says during the series DVD commentary. “We just had to use what heads we had around. We also used Bill Clinton’s head during the oral sex scenes!”
Bush has garnered complimentary reviews for the appearance, with several critics saying his performance is “very natural”.
Ex-President Bill Clinton apologized for making statements that sounded like an endorsement of extending Bush-era tax cuts on wealthy Americans. “I thought something had to be done right away – I forgot the first rule of being a politician in an election year: doing things is dangerous. Election years are a time to talk specifically about things your party has done that you know are popular with your voters, and speaking in sweeping generalities about the future. Under no circumstances do you actually do anything!”
Clinton looked tired as he made his recantation – as if he had been up all night being brow-beaten.
