Former Gov.shops recognition for his brother former Pres. : A commentary
Anchor for Allvoices
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is a gracious brother of former US President George W. Bush. He does it as he shops for recognition for the former president. The former governor’s recent appearance on CBS’s “This Morning” he said, “Presidentought to give his brother George a “little tip of the hat” for his leadership on national security and foreign affairs.”
Furthermore, Jeb said, “I would argue in some ways, by reality seeping into his life as commander in chief, that a lot of [Obama’s foreign policy] is modeled after [Bush] 43,” Jeb Bush toldon CBS’s “This Morning.”
In view of these pronouncements of former Governor Bush, recognition for somebody’s achievements is not something to beg for or to be solicited. Recognition comes naturally from people to discern the truth with independence and freedom. Recognition is not an imposition but it is given naturally out of goodwill.
It must have been more meritorious for the former governor to wait patiently for the time to enable President Obama and the entire American people to recognize the accomplishments of his former president brother rather than going around shopping for it.
Certainly, there is graciousness that resides in the incumbent president which initially been recently demonstrated when he invited to White House the former president and first lady for the unveiling of their portraits.
Probably, next to that must been the recognition of a former president by an incumbent one. However, with the recent appearance of former governor Bush on CBS has preempted it.
Nonetheless, irrespective of party affiliation and ideology, the former Florida governor taught and demonstrated on how to give credit to anyone who deserves it. He praised Obama for the work his administration had done in education while urging him to give at least some credit to his brother, George W. Bush for his accomplishments.
Though, it is a commendation for Obama that necessitates a specific price in return, still it accrues certain good for the incumbent president.
However, will this thing favorable for the future presidential ambition of the former governor?
