A New Bush Embraces the Tea Party

George P. Bush, "the 37-year-old grandson of one former president and nephew of another, is launching his political career by running for Texas' little-known but powerful land commissioner post," the AP reports.

"But rather than campaigning on the mainstream Republicanism embodied by the family name, Bush says he's 'a movement conservative' more in line with the tea party."

"As if to underscore the point, he says he draws the most inspiration not from the administrations of his grandfather, George H. W. Bush, or his uncle, George W. Bush, but from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who engineered the 1994 Republican takeover of that chamber."
