Fact of the Day: Brother John

While former President George W. Bush's brother (and former Governor of Florida) is known as Jeb, it's not exactly his real name. His name is really John Ellis Bush, the nickname Jeb is really the initials of his full name.

Interesting that he was even 'officially' known with this abbreviation!

Have a fantastic weekend,

Oh, good to know!

That is really interesting.
But please for the love of all that's holy, no more Bushes!

Actually, Jeb is probably the best of the Bushes, best able to reach across the aisle. Jeb is a more folksy name than John.

What a great fact...love this. I like him, too. I would LOVE for him to be president because, like his dad and brother, I think he really cares for America and it's people.
GO, JEB !!
