The family that defined Republicanism for decades, is the Bush’s dynasty, they clashed on Monday with the new and sarcastic face of the party, Donald J. Trump, in one of the most intense and powerful displays of battling in the presidential primary campaign so far.

A Big Brother call for rescue

Jeb Bush, who facing increasing pressure in South Carolina after a dull or unattractive displaying in previous state contests, which made him to invite his elder brought, George W. Bush, and the former first lady, Laura Bush, to attest for his a great potentials and judgment here in a race that has been driven in recent weeks by fierce and heavy language, anger and personal attacks.

“There seems to be a lot of name calling going on, but I want to remind you what our good dad told me one time — labels are for soup cans,” the former president told a crowd that the campaign estimated at 3,000 people at a civic center here. “The presidency is a serious job that requires sound judgment and good ideas and there’s no doubt in my mind that Jeb Bush has the experience and the character to be a great president.”

Trump continues his range and assaults on the Bush’s family

The former president Mr. Bush commended his younger brother’s “deep and genuine faith” — “faith that reveals itself through good works, not loud words,” he stated. He encouraged Republicans to nominate a candidate who can win the general election in November.

“All the sloganeering and all the talk doesn’t matter if we don’t win,” he said. “These are tough times, and I understand that Americans are angry and frustrated, but we do not need someone in the Oval Office who mirrors and enflames our anger and frustration.”

George W Bush’s remarks came hours after Mr. Trump, who is right now leading in polls here. Trump held a news conference nearby in which he continued his rage and assault on Mr. Bush, making jest of his famous “Mission Accomplished” program during the Iraq War and he categorically said the country was not “safe” during the president’s tenure.

What does that mean, he kept the country safe after 9/11?” Mr. Trump asked, repeating a broadside — that the 43rd president was responsible for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 — that he used in Saturday’s Republican debate. “What about during 9/11? I was there.”
