Bush relatives support John Kerry for president

Gersh Kuntzman writes in a web article for Newsweek.com:

"George W. Bush should not be re-elected because he lied to the American people, has presided over record deficits, has removed scores of environmental regulations and is incapable of rethinking his positions even when confronted by new information.

But for once, don’t take it from me. Take it from his second cousin. 'He’s guided by an extreme narrow-mindedness and an inability to consider the full depth of an issue,' says Chris House, whose grandmother, Mary House, was a sister of the president’s grandfather, Prescott Bush. That makes him the president’s second cousin twice removed—although he’ll settle for removing the president just once. 'He may be a relative of mine, but nowhere in my side of the family do you see that sense of entitlement that he has,' says House, who lives in Olympia, Wash. 'He just projects this feeling that this job belongs to him and that he can do whatever he wants.'

House is one of six members of his branch of the family that set up a Web site—bushrelativesforkerry.com—to help spread the news that not everyone in the Bush clan supports the president."
