New Jeb Bush ad knocks old order but is that the really the Bush family

 This new campaign ad for Jeb Bush comes from Right to Rise PAC, run by one of Bush's top advisers, Mike Murphy. 

The ad begins with a shot of President Obama and Hillary Clinton appearing to be on the steps of Air Force One. The video quickly shifts to Bush saying "We need to disrupt the old order in Washington, D.C."

Bush appears in the ad speaking to a "town hall" gathering in what Donald Trump might call a "high energy" fashion.

The "old order" theme is interesting for Bush considering his family history. From his grandfather who was a U.S. Senator to his father who held several political offices before becoming vice president and then president to his brother George W., the Bush family has been part of Washington for most of the past 60 years.

Sen. Prescott Bush held office from 1952 to 1963.

George H.W. Bush was a congressman from 1967 to 1971, U.N. Ambassador 71-73, RNC chairman, 73-74, Chief of Liaison Office in China, 74-75, CIA director, 76-77, Vice President 81-89, President 89-93.

George W. Bush was president 2001 to 2009.

There are not a lot of gaps there in the Bush's family time spent involved in Washington politics.

Apparently, the definition of "old order" is just the last eight years.

One wonders if Bush would be better off embracing the family's Washington legacy than pretending he's not part of it while dearly trying to extend it.
