Years ago when the current President was still out of control his father had him talk toÂ Billy GrahmÂ to help straighten him out.
As President the junior Bush made a point of saying that he listened to his Father…the one in heaven implying that he wasn’t inclined to pay any heed to his own Father’s advice. Now, many people are pointing to the Iraq Study Group as the latest intervention by the elder Bush to help his struggling Son.
YesterdayÂ the former President broke up repeatedly in talking about the honor of his son – Florida Governor Jeb Bush.Â
Andrew Sullivan speculates that it is because the former President is grateful to have at least one son whoÂ wh is livingÂ up to the high standardsÂ the elder BushÂ would like, or would have liked, both his sons to live up to.
