Barbara Bush No Longer Minds Another Bush In The White House

The matriarch of matriarchs, Barbara Bush has changed her mind about Bushes in the White House. In a 2013 Interview with NBC's "Today Show," she was asked whether or not she thought Jeb Bush should run for president. Her response was, “He’s by far the most qualified man. But no. I think it’s a great country. There are a lot of great families, and it’s not just four families or whatever. There are other people out there that are very qualified. We’ve had enough Bushes. He’ll get all our enemies and half our friends."

Yet, it seems she's had a change of heart. In a coordinated Skype announcement at a Bonita Springs, FL dinner for hundreds of her son's supporters she said, “What do you mean, ‘Too many Bushes’? I've changed my mind." She hasn't divulged what caused her to have a change of opinion, but Jeb Bush has seen an increase in popularity since he announced he was considering a 2016 White House bid. Right now, he is the most active, announcing a new super PAC to raise funds and hire staff in early primary states. In addition, he is garnering support from Mitt Romney's wealthy wall street donors.
