(Newser) – Even as one son packs his bags to leave the White House, former President Bush is waxing poetic about seeing another move in one day. And since "right now is probably a bad time" with Americans Bushed out, HW suggests Jeb Bush would make "an outstanding senator." Poppy Bush also defended the former Florida guv, telling Fox News that the media—particularly the New York Times—have been "grossly unfair" to the reigning president.

"There were some things that clearly he deserved criticism for," Bush says of Dubya. But "it's been tough on his mother and father. We're not very good sports about sitting around and hearing him hammered unfairly."
