George W. Bush never mentioned Donald Trump.Trump's rise has confounded the Bush family and its allies. The race has entered an increasingly nasty phase in South Carolina, with numerous negative ads airing on local television following an unusually caustic debate this past weekend in which Trump confronted Jeb Bush about his brother's record as president.Bush is trying to pull ahead of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich to emerge as the more mainstream alternative to Trump and Cruz, both of whom the party establishment considers unelectable.Trump has also repeatedly reminded voters that the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks happened on Bush's watch.The 43rd president left office deeply unpopular with a nation fatigued by the Iraq War and angry over his botched response to Hurricane Katrina. He's also a reminder to voters eager to break with the political establishment that Jeb Bush would be the third man from his family to serve as president.The former president is the latest member of the prominent political family to hit the campaign trail to help prop up Jeb Bush.
