Will the 2016 Presidential Election Be Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton?

Posted on 03/19/2013 10:31:43 AM PDT by ComtedeMaistre

There are strong indications that Jeb Bush will be a candidate in 2016:

http://todaynews.today.com/_news/2013/03/04/17179710-jeb-bush-i-wont-rule-out-2016-white-house-run-but-i-wont-declare-today?lite

It also well known that Hillary Clinton is preparing to run in 2016.

Did you know that there has been a Dole, Bush, or Clinton running for President or Vice-President (including primaries) since the year 1976, with the sole exception of the year 2012? That is a total of 9 Presidential elections - 1976, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2008! If either Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton is a candidate in 2016, then America will have officially become a banana republic, and the property of 3 families.

Jeb Bush's son, George P. Bush, is running for a state-wide office in Texas in 2014. If that happens, then Chelsea Clinton may seek a Senate or Governor's position. The big corporations will support those establishment candidates with a Tsunami of cash.

America will become a third world hell hole like Cuba, Syria, Jordan and North Korea. In Cuba, Fidel gave the presidency to his brother Raul, while in Syria, Bashar Al-Assad got the job from his father, Hafez Al-Assad. King Abdullah of Jordan inherited his job from his Dad, King Hussein. Kim Jong Un of North Korea inherited the Job from his Dad, Kim Jong Il.

It’s like we’re a scratched-CD starting from ‘88 and just constantly skipping over the same crappy part of the song over and over again.

Mark Levin said that his ‘private’ sources tell him Jeb B is quietly talking to the big money people behind the scenes.

Jeb B did not get such a rousing reception at CPAC and, per some sources, he requested that his name not be placed on the CPAC straw poll.

Watch out for Carly Fiorina...

She sure sounded like a candidate on THIS WEEK with Liberal Georgie.

Ill be seeing you;
In all the old, familiar places;
That this heart of mine embraces;
All day through.

In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The childrens carousel;
The chestnut tree;
The wishing well.

Ill be seeing you;
In every lovely, summers day;
And everything that's bright and gay;
Ill always think of you that way;
Ill find you in the morning sun;
And when the night is new;
Ill be looking at the moon;
But I'll be seeing you.

Obama did.

Hillary got derailed on her last trip to her coronation. In 2016, she will be packing another 8 years of wear.

I have my doubts she could hold up, especially if some upstart jumps in and gives her a rough primary season.

If it is, half the GOP vote will stay home. That is a sure recipe for 8 years of having Billy Jeff Clinton as First Dude.

The Bush’s have done even more damage to conservatism than the Clintons.

I don’t want to vote for Virgil Goode again, but I will. Or whichever REAL conservative is running.

Nope. Jeb doesn’t have the support unless something changes.And, I personally do not believe Hillary is going to run. All the skeletons she has in the closet will start rattling again,and she will have to answer a lot of questions that she doesn’t want to.
JMHO, and Idon’t know who will be tagged,either.

At this point, it doesn’t matter. Nobody the Repubs nominate will defeat Hillary.

The GOP needs to re-direct its energies to the Senate, House and Governorships.

It's painful to have to acknowledge that, but it's an undeniable fact. The GOP will not win the White House again. The national demographics have shifted too far.

She doesn't have to be. There aren't enough votes to put a Republican in the White House now.

1. The GOP doesn't have a messiah candidate like an "Obama."

2. Hillary is a Clinton, a woman, and a Democrat.

Whether or not the last name is "Bush" only makes a difference in the electoral vote margin of defeat.

The money spent on campaigns is sort of like a tax. The money is distributed among the State Controlled Media, and the upside is that the people think they are helping their party.

It actually makes a lot of sense to go with Jeb Bush. We obviously don’t want to win. Look at the past two nominees. The fix is in.
