Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's son arrested
21-year-old charged with public intoxication, resisting arrestAUSTIN, Texas - The youngest son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was arrested early Friday and charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest, law enforcement officials said.
John Ellis Bush, 21, was arrested by agents of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission at 2:30 a.m. on a corner of Austin’s Sixth Street bar district, said commission spokesman Roger Wade.
The nephew of President Bush was released on $2,500 bond for the resisting arrest charge, and on a personal recognizance bond for the public intoxication charge, officials said.
“My son’s doing fine. It’s a private matter. We will support him. We’re sad for him. But I’m not going to discuss it on the public square with 30 cameras,” the governor told reporters.
You are a public figure, you moron! Whatever your family does is subjected to scrutiny and a reflection of you.
Alcoholism must run in the family. No wonder Bushy can't finish a declarative sentence on his own. His speech in New Orleans lacked compassion and empathy. I honestly don't understand why he is our president.

"To the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility," Bush saidSlipping in the polls, NOW he's accepting responsibility? He'd been dodging that all his life.
CUT THE CRAP! YOU, BUSHY, DIDN'T DO YOUR JOB RIGHT!
If only he'd follow Brownie's lead and resign. Unfortunately, this all didn't happen before the last election. He doesn't even apologize.

Laura Bush Calls Criticism Of Husband 'Disgusting'
Yeah, keep telling yourself that, you little "Stepford Wife." Oh right, he cares about people. He only cares when he needs a photo op. His true colors are showing. Even his father wouldn't have been so stupid and insensitive.

An open letter to George Bush. Love, Michael Moore.

Dear Mr. Bush:
Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.
Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?
Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!
I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?
And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!
On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.
There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.
No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!
You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Instead of playing up to the media and acting like everything is fine and dandy, get your stupid lame ass moving and do something. He shows a genuine lack of concern and I don't know what people see in him.
I'M ASHAMED AND EMBARRASSED TO HAVE HIM AS OUR PRESIDENT!
“People need to remember when Terri Schiavo was about to be taken off life support by her husband – President Bush and the Republicans in the U.S. Congress traveled through the night (on a Sunday) back to Washington, D.C. to pass a bill to try and keep her alive despite the wishes of her and her husband. Now four days into the worst natural disaster in U.S. history Congress remains on vacation, George Bush took three days to get to D.C. and the people of New Orleans still await assistance from the Federal Government.”
I just watched one news program and Bush was touring in Biloxi. He didn't miss a beat! Hugging and kissing these two black girls while the news photogs snapped away. He's trying to promote himself as benevolent. He should be down in New Orleans. It's a third world country down there. We live in one of the richest nations, and though our government has shown support for the tsunami relief victims, our government can't even take care of its own. I think Bush should be impeached because the bottem line is that HE is accountable for all the mistakes. I'd post pictures, but they are too overwhelmingly sad.
