Skip to comments.Bush/Palin 2016 called 'the GOP's only chance'

Earlier this year, Jeb Bush told ABC that both his father George H.W. Bush, and brother George W. recommended he run for president in 2016. Mama Barbara Bush is not keen on the idea, declaring in April that the nations probably had enough Bushes.
But in the constantly shifting equations of potential Republican hopefuls for future president and vice president, the former Florida governors name has been tied with another former governor: Sarah Palin.
The pair have now been framed as a the GOPs only chance in the race by American Thinker contributor Michael Sheppard.
Would Jeb Bush have as good a chance, or better, than any other prospective GOP candidate? Most certainly he might. As a popular governor of Florida, married to a Hispanic, and who garnered a good proportion of the Hispanic vote, Bush would be in a strong position to carry the state, he says, reasoning that Mr. Bush, as a southern governor, could also hold sway in Virginia and appeal to Iowa evangelicals and centrist voters in New Hampshire.
Should Hillary Clinton emerge as the Democratic candidate, it could also improve Mr. Bushs electability. Then there is the Palin factor, Mr. Sheppard says. She brings ardent fans with her, of course.
A Jeb Bush/president - Sarah Palin/vice-president ticket covers all the Electoral College, Evangelical, pro-life, centrist-conservative, experienced governorships, male/female bases, he notes.....

I support exactly half this ticket.
The Stupid Party is quickly becoming the Suicidal Party.
Forget the GOP — how about saving America?
It maybe the GOP’s only chance but that says that the GOP is way past its use-by date already. Why elect people who are loyal members of a subsection of the Democrat Party?
please....No Palin....I’ve got a pink baseball cap from her vp run....I love the woman...but she is not going to be elected.....sure, she’s been borked...but it is what it is...
They haven’t covered the African American and gay bases. No way that works.
Didn’t Governor Palin say today that if amnesty passed the House she’s no longer a Republican?
Where is the Porcelin Comode God, I feel the need to pray!!
Frankly what the GOP needs to do is two things:
First off, elect Palin.
Second off, we need to stop sending American jobs elsewhere. We need Americans, in America, making things.
That is not what is currently happening. Every day, more American jobs go to other places.
Bring them back.
And elect Palin.
And why not? The Republicans aren’t Republicans anymore. They are just Democrats now.
2016 means nothing but Dictator change. Exe Branch, Congress and Senate are nothing more than a Bananna Republic government that has ruined this Country. King George would be proud!
Bad thing there is no new world to sail to!
Bush + Michael Palin would make a great comedy team!
for crying out loud, so now they lay their platform for ole Jeb and now they get ready to push another Bush on us.
A Ted Cruz/Rand Paul ticket would cause heads to explode across the political spectrum.
As much as Palin has many good characteristics, the GOPe and the media have irreparably Dan Quayled her.
I agree about Palin. Love her, but she cannot be president.
I’ll even tick off a lot of Freepers here and say that women are not inherently qualified for the position of President of the U.S. (Even though we have one now.)
“Didnt Governor Palin say today that if amnesty passed the House shes no longer a Republican?”
I would be honored to walk out that door hand in hand with her.
No one wants Bush ... except the DNC.
Were you having a nightmare. Palin yes, Bush or any other Rino, NO!
