Jeb Bush in 2016? Not Too Early for Chatter
New York Times ^ | Nov 25 2012 | JIM RUTENBERG and JEFF ZELENY

Posted on 11/23/2012 5:16:22 PM PST by WilliamIII

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Now that the Obama and Romney campaigns have closed their headquarters in Chicago and Boston, the attention of the political world is shifting to an office suite tucked behind the colonnades of the Biltmore Hotel complex here.

The suite is where former Gov. Jeb Bush manages his consulting business, his education foundation and, now, the (very) early decision-making process for a possible presidential run in 2016.

Nice to know ahead of time that the GOP has absolutely no intent of winning anytime in the foreseeable future.

It’s too early and too late, both at the same time. Even Jesse Jackson knows better so I don’t understand why the GOP can’t see it.

Other than a fleeting chuckle at the idea of lib heads exploding over another Bush possibly being President I can’t imagine why we would want Jeb.

I can't go through another fours years of another President Bush refusing to defend himself against the attacks from the left. The housing crash wasn't Bush's fault, it was the Democrats who lowered loaning standards and refused to reign in F&F. The collapse of the US auto industry wasn't Bush's fault, in that he didn't force Americans to buy foreign makes instead of their own. Katrina wasn't Bush's fault, but was the failure of the local and state leaders, both Democrats, for failing to act. The deficit wasn't Bush''s fault, because he was paying for the WOT that Clinton had punted on, and the deficit was 165 billion and shrinking when the Democrat controlled Congress replaced the GOP controlled Congress in 2007. None of this was Bush's fault, but he allowed the left to blame him for all of it.

Instead of using the pulpit to defend himself, Bush "reached across the aisle" and literally let the left walk all over him. I can't go through another four years of that.

Sorry, but READ MY LIPS, NO NEW BUSHES.

Ok, how in G-d's name does the EGOP still have that much of a rectal cranal inverson after some 14 days ago. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.

They are insane....

With all I said, as a backdrop how do we not finally say goodbye to the EGOP and start our own gig...

And so it has been foreordained. Rove and Ann Coulter will begin pushing it, and their GOPe flying monkeys will begin creating accounts on FreeRepublic and browbeating anyone who opposes it.

Why does GOP keep having to run Bush relatives? Can’t they find any descendants/relatives of Herbert Hoover to run? Maybe he has a great nephew, Jeb Hoover?

We'd have to take care of that in the primaries. If we wins that, then that's what we'll be stuck with in the general elections. But I doubt he'll win the primaries if he runs.

Nobody named Bush will get a single democrat vote, nor will he get 75% of the typically reliable GOP vote.

Brother Jeb hasn't a snowball's chance in HELL of being elected president.

I don't know what the party is thinking.

I still get email from Jeb for his Foundation for Excellence in Schools, but he can drop off the face of the earth with his prostituting himself by pushing John Podesta being keynote speaker for one of his forums.

He was a great Governor, but he needs to just go far away, and take his Mama with him. He needs to never open his mouth again, anywhere on behalf of Republicans. Snowball's chance in hell of ever being anything again.

We should really strive for a Republican candidate who will appeal to Hispanics.

That way, when the Hispanics vote really heavily for the Democrat, we can all be surprised and disappointed.

It doesn’t matter who the Republicans run unless the voter fraud is stopped...and that’s not going to happen.

Over 50% are sttill blaming Brother George for the bad economy, based on exit polls.

If the GOPe are stupid enough to put a Bush on the ticket during the next 50 years, they are going to hand elections to the Dems.

Let Jeb run and get it out of his system. I doubt he would make it very far in the primaries anyway.

We’d have to take care of that in the primaries

If there are eight or nine “conservative” candidates splitting up the vote - per usual - the establishment’s guy will win with a plurality. That’s how Romney won primaries
