As President Bush prepares for Thursday's opening of his library on the campus of Southern Methodist University, he's already pushing his younger brother Jeb to begin the next chapter of the Bush family political legacy.
On the eve of dedicating the presidential library of the man he blames for much of the country's ills, President Obama said George W.

Mr. Bush's basic penchant for earthy fare is still active. Very active, in fact.
