Grandpa Bush sure appears to have had a lot more on the ball than Jeb.
In the below 1953 interview, for whatever it is worth, Preston Bush comes out in favor of higher interest rates to fight inflation.
He also has some interesting comments on eminent domain, which I am sure Trump can twist to use to his advantage.
There is definitely a sharpness and energy gene that wasn’t passed along to George H.W., George W. and Jeb that grandpa had.
