Skip to comments.(Jeb) Bush Attacks Rubio Plan as He Eyes 2016
Posted on 01/28/2013 11:50:47 AM PST by Olog-hai
Neither former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., nor Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. have announced their plans to run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, but both are already speaking and acting like contenders, going head to head on issues such as immigration and education reform.
Bush said in a Wall Street Journal op-ed last week that efforts to tackle immigration reform on a piecemeal basis are short-sighted and self-defeating.

RINO Kabuki. The GOP-e have already anointed Bush-Rubio to be the losing ticket of preference for 2016.
How much longer until he GOP-e announces that Jeb Bush will be our next - failed - nominee?
NO JEB on RUBIO!
Need a graphic of a lawn shrub superimposed with a red circle and a line through it.
Jeb, just go home.
“Tokyo” Rove gets a new contract with Fox News and days after we get this load of crap!
The oligarchs elbowing their way up to the trough.
If Rubio ran to the left of Jeb on immigration, he’s made a major, major error. Jeb is terrible on this issue, Rubio’s road to the White House is an immigration reform bill that most of the conservative base can accept. It would skyrocket him as a principled pragmatist.
Exactly right... Kabuki. Playing bad cop, good cop.
They are total allies in their desires for open-borders, here trying to play a little game to fool the GOP electorate.
NO MORE BUSHES! We need a full grown mature tree with a different name and a different outlook.
Please no more Bush family members. My G-d we have a country of 300 million people, surely there is someone else...
Please God, not Jeb Bush. I will not waste my time defending another Bush.
There’s two sons of Witch’s I won’t be voting for.
This has to be made very apparent ASAP! What he has said recently tells me he has no chance with conservatives.
I guess that cowardly scumbag Jeb wants “comprehensive” reform, ie., a big bill that hides all the crap that would never get approved “piecemeal”.
NO Jeb Bush!
No to Rubio!
No to Tokyo Rove!
No to Faux News1!
NO NO NO!
Jeb's mom will let them know the proper time.
Pffft! Like we have any input into the GOP!
Well, I'm sure they are indeed trying to grease the skids for Jeb, but I can't see an all-Florida ticket.
I suspect the ticket they really want is Jeb Bush/Pork Porkie.
Fighting over who gets to lose in the end.
No more dynasties.
No Bush’s, no Kennedy’s, no Rockefellers, no Clinton’s, no Roosevelt’s, no Jackson’s, and definitely no Obama’s.
No more dynasties.
So we have a Bush III attacking a supposed tea party candidate for not being liberal enough with his amnesty proposal. We have officially become the Bizarro-Republican Party.
In 2016, it will be Jeb's "turn" for the nomination--just as it was Dole's "turn" in 1996, McCain's in 2009, and Romney's in 2012.
Jeb is big on immigration reform as well. Can i get a candidate who says. “go home and we’ll let you know when you can return.”?
This is GOOD!
Get Jeb out there ealy, and let him fall on his face, such that he fails early in any Primary bid.
Hey, Rove--as they say in Tokyo, Mizūmi ni tobikonde iku! (Go jump in the lake!).
“Can i get a candidate who says. go home and well let you know when you can return.?”
Yes, you can find such a candidate.
And their name is loser. And none shall remember him.
You don’t have to like it.
Just know that what you’d like has no correlation with what is possible in this culture.
O-M-G I do not think I can handle 4 years of this garbage! Give the public a break all you would-be contenders and WAIT. I’m a politicaholic and even I’m sick of it right now.
As far as BUSH - just NO, NO, NO - we the people are sick of dynasties. If we wanted that, then why not just elect Bush king?
As far as RUBIO - NO. I’ve heard enough to know you aren’t who you pretend to be.
Grrrrr......stepping off the soap box now.
Im making my calls and emails from out of the country and will continue when I return...hope my fellow freepers are doing the same. Dont let up and dont cave in!!!!!!!
We need to restart HUAC ~ the first idiots to call before the committee will be Bush and Rubio. Throw in Pericaliente for show and we can destroy the RINOs and pro-Mexican crowd right now!
A full court press in the fall of 2015 here on FR to support Jeb in the primaries by the usual suspects spewing the usual Team GOP talking points and sanctimoniously villifying any FReeper that opposes them. Yawn....
More of the same from the Gee oh Pee.
I agree with you, but why all the apostrophes?
And then blaming everyone else for the loss.

Some people NEVER learn.
Will be very interesting when it comes down to Rubio vs Cruz.
I have no doubt that the next republican prez candidate will have a ‘latino-sounding’ surname. I have whimsically suggested before that all republican candidates will change their name to a latino slant. It’s our only hope . . . . Obe Wan Diego!
Even El Rushbo has done it.
Plenty of Freepers promoting Rubio, the NOT NBC candidate.
Then they would be violating the Constitution.
But, then again the Constitution is so old hat isn’t it?
F 'em. That's why we're pushing the Jebby meme now, so when they start that bilge we can say it's old news.
I can swap mine out from Breton to Spanish with the addition of a single consonant ~ then, there are the Salinas ~ “flag of the lines” ~ all about Breton or Cornish mounted knights ~ I think the Spanish think it’s about salt or something ~ foolish people ~ they work for us!~
Are we really going to wind up with Clinton vs Bush in 2016....really?
A great many Americans are stupid, and it is not just on the left.
Yeh Jeb just wants to cut through the red tape and make all 11 million illegals citizens on the spot.
