Jeb Bush shaped by troubled Phillips Academy years
In the fall of 1967, when a 14-year-old Texan named John Ellis Bush arrived on the bucolic campus of Phillips Academy in Andover, great expectations preceded him.I don't really think to much of Jeb Bush who has proven that he's a RINO of the highest caliber but the liberal/commie media going back 44 years and depending on hazy memories is a bit much. Especially how they didn't seem to concerned over Obama's past activities at all.
Jeb, as he was known, should have been an easy fit in that elite and ivied world. His much-accomplished father and his older brother had both gone to Andover; no one was surprised that Jeb had followed suit.
But this Bush almost ran aground in those first, formative prep school days. He bore little resemblance to his father, a star on many fronts at Andover, and might have been an even worse student than brother George. Classmates said he smoked a notable amount of pot — as many did — and sometimes bullied smaller students.
Resolutely apolitical despite his lineage, he refused to join the Progressive Andover Republicans club and often declined even to participate in informal bull sessions with classmates. In a tumultuous season in American life, he seemed to his peers strangely detached and indifferent.
“He was just in a bit of a different world,” said Phil Sylvester, who said he was a Bush roommate. While other students “were constantly arguing about politics and particularly Vietnam, he just wasn’t interested, he didn’t participate, he didn’t care.”
Meanwhile, his grades were so poor that he was in danger of being expelled, which would have been a huge embarrassment to his father, a member of Congress and of the school’s board of trustees.~snip~
How come we didn't get the "real story" behind Barack Obama's drug use or,more importantly, stories about his academic transcripts?
I'm still waiting for the republican party to offer a real leader as opposed to a vetted RINO but it's pretty plain what we can expect from the biased lapdog media as they circle their wagons waiting to anoint another liberal hack.
