The speculation can end. George P. Bush is running for Land Commissioner (Sources: CNN, Dallas Morning News, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post). I honestly can’t remember a Land Commissioner race getting this much national attention (which would be any).
This office isn’t exactly known as a launching pad for higher office, but it’s going to be an open seat that will probably not see much competition in the primary. The only commissioner since 1900 to successfully achieve higher office was David Dewhurst (elected Lt. Gov. in 2002); a couple others tried and failed. The current occupant - Jerry Patterson - is planning to run for Lt. Gov. in 2014.

That’s right guys! A Bush in office! Here are some more details on the George Bush who was 18 when Weezer’s first album was out.
