Jebby's boy joins Navel Reserve

Not exactly hot off the presses, but a little news story and the failed to catch.

From that:
George P. Bush, a nephew of President Bush who was a hit on the campaign trail, has been accepted in the Navy Reserve as an intelligence officer and has begun the process of being commissioned for eight years of service.

Bush, 30, said in a telephone interview from his office at a real estate development firm in Fort Worth, Texas, that he was moved to join the service in part when he attended the rainy commissioning in October of the aircraft carrier named for his grandfather -- the USS George H.W. Bush.

Bush said he had not intended to announce his plans. "Honestly, I'm kind of a little disappointed that the word got out," he said. "I was hoping to keep this as confidential as possible. I'm not doing it for political purposes or anything along those lines.

Bush wouldn't talk about any political plans of his own, but friends say they believe the family may soon be in store for another gubernatorial campaign.
George P. is one of "the little brown ones" gandpa George H.W. spoke so lovingly about to wing nut diety Ronald Reagan and Dragon Lady Nancy at the Repub national convention in 1988. He is the older brother of Xanax junkie Noelle.

Here's what one reader, fubar43, of posted at the site's comments section:
Young George enlisted in the Reserve knowing full well that not many Naval Reservists are activated. It's primarily the Army and Marines that they call up. He knows that Uncle George W. will do the same for him that George H.W. did for junior. He will never see combat. This enlistment is just to quiet all of the people that have been wondering why no one from any of the Bush families is serving in the military in this "noble cause". It's everyone else's kids. Well, we will see if he is as noble as say, Prince Harry, who has asked to go to Iraq with his men. That is real courage. We will see if this Bush as any. It seems none of the other Bush's do. Where are Jenna and Barbara? They should join their cousin.

Nuff said.
