George W. Bush is out on the campaign trail stumping for Jeb, a development that definitely does not give us chilling flashbacks and stress diarrhea. Last night they went on Fox News together, where Sean Hannity beamed at them with delight and W. joyfully mangled the English language as though not a single day had passed since his moment in the sun.
W. told Hannity that he’s supporting his brother because he knows about being president and he knows what it takes:
“I love America and I know we face enormous problems, but I know we can deal with them. I know we can handle them. I’m not an expert in a lot of things, but I’m pretty knowledgeable about what it take to be President, since ‘I were one’. And he’s got what it takes. He’s got character, backbone, philosophy, vision, and he’d make a really good President.”
In fairness: yeah, he were.
Nothing could be as enthusiastic as Barbara Bush noting that her son “seems to be” the best candidate, but this is pretty good.
