Jeb Bush Moving Closer to 2016 Run
News Max ^ | 2/5/13 | Cyrus Afzali

Posted on 02/05/2013 2:04:41 PM PST by illiac

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will speak for the first time at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, a clear sign that he is mulling a run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

The American Conservative Union, which sponsors the conference, announced Tuesday that Bush will address the group, set for March 14-16 in National Harbor, Md., just outside Washington. Bush has been invited by the group to speak at CPAC several times, but this will be his first appearance.

“We are pleased to announce that my friend Gov. Jeb Bush will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013,” ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said in a statement.

To Paraphrase a certain show:

You can defeat us one by one, and those who follow us, and those who follow them, on and on, every conservative, every tea party group. Until there’s no one left to defeat. You will have failed as leaders of the GOP Establishment. And you will be alone.

It’s over because we’ve decided it’s over. Now get the hell out of our Party!

In regard to the Republican Party, this would be strike three for me. Enough of the Bush bunch.

Just another fine example of how the GOP is grasping at straws - they long ago abandoned conservatives.

If Jeb is the candidate for 2016, say hello to Hillary. At least it will put an end to the Bush dynasty.

I like Jeb Bush (I live in Florida, and he was an excellent governor) but I don’t think he has much of a chance.

However, getting any even possible candidates into the ring would be an improvement.

Last time around, we had NOBODY who was willing to run, except Romney who had been running for years, and Santorum likewise. But they obviously were not great candidates, because Romney had to be shoved down everybody’s throats when he was selected by the GOP-E because he was the only rich WASP RINO candidate they had on hand. That seems to be the sole qualification.

Let’s get a lot of people out there and make decisions. We’re not like the Dems - we can’t run a total unknown, stupid, loser, mysterious, non-native born candidate and have the press run out cheering.

I am 99% against Jeb as a candidate (leaving a little wiggle room depending on who else is in the race), but the one good things from his candidacy is a guaranteed win in FL...which seems to be eluding us recently. Jeb is extremely popular here.

nothing like an insider’s insider to get immaculated into the WH. If Jebby is their man, consider it a done deal, unless of course the insiders want the Hildabeast. Daddy Bush is a criminal, W is a criminal, Neil is a criminal, how can Jebby not be a criminal too? Since the US government is now the largest criminal organization on the planet, Jebby is perfect to be the president of the US. Loose all the felons, pardon the obozo, the Hildabeast, Holder, Guithner, Benny B, and the rest and free drugs and money for all their associates and friends!!!!

Idea: Don’t bother with the election, just hand the office to Hillary or Michelle.

Maybe Jorge “La Raza” Bush can run in ‘20.

Are these E-GOP-er's this flippin' stupid?

Don't they get we have had enough of this type of candidate?

I mean what is worse?

These Politicans that are way beyond their exporation date or the Rolling Stones going on tour one more time!

Both situations are an unmitigated pile of suckage and someone ought to tell them your time is over, get out of the flippin' lime light!
