Bush cousins launch pro-Kerry Web site
BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- There goes the invitation to the Texas ranch.
Seven distant relatives of President Bush have created a Web site urging visitors: "Please, don't vote for our cousin."
The Bush relatives, supporters of Democratic challenger John Kerry, say they've never met the president but disagree with his policies ranging from the war in Iraq to the environment.
The Web site was launched in late September "to help America heal from the sickness it has suffered since George Bush was appointed president in 2000."
"I don't really feel like it's a betrayal," said Sheila House, the president's second cousin and co-creator of the site. "I'll definitely admit that we're using the relationship as a hook to get people to talk about politics."
The people behind the Web site are all grandchildren of Mary Bush House, the sister of Prescott Bush, who was the father and grandfather of the two Bush presidents. That makes them second cousins of the president.
The idea came about when Kerry spotted Sheila House's cousin, Jeanny House, at a rally waving a sign that read "Bush Relative for Kerry." They shook hands and Kerry joked about creating a Web site, Sheila House said.
The site, which includes the headline, "Because blood is thinner than oil!" offers testimonials from the Bush relatives.
The Bush campaign did not return a call seeking comment.
