The White House described it as a social call, but feel free to speculate. Jeb Bush’s presence was unexpected — the White House hadn’t said anything about him being invited. It’s all very… bipartisan.
The Bushes were at the White House for just over a half-hour, emerging in a driving snow that over the next few hours will blanket the capital with several inches of fluff.
“Good meeting, good meeting,” the elder Bush, 85 and walking with a cane, said in response to a question called out by a reporter.
This may seem like a silly post, but out-of-the-ordinary events, especially Obama meeting with “progressive” GOP operatives, will always make one eyebrow go up. Don’t think Bush 41 is a progressive? What about a ‘New World Order’?
