Skip to comments.Bush/Palin 2016 called 'the GOP's only chance'
Posted on 06/28/2013 6:20:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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!
Palin is number 3 in the last poll I saw.
Chris Cristie is number one. Don’t remember the second. And Palin is number three.
It’s a somewhat old poll, but there you go.
Shove Jeb up your backside!!!
Obama gets homosexuals and black racist with a few white guilt self hating fools are all he;s go.
As for Bush , no thank you, Bush and the establishment should have been talking social issues and homosexuals and their agenda but instead the fools like them tell us to shut up and stay quiet as they’re cowards or they agree with the homosexual agenda\\\and they’re not gay they’re homosexuals, turd pokers, feces sex queers or what evr but they are not gay as they took that word to try and put a positive word on a perverted disgusting communist agenda and yes back in 63 the communists were pushing homosexuality in America to ruin us\\\
Just like to say to all those so called republicans who said don’t mention social issues, yea that really went well hey\\frigging idiots
I don’t seem to recall hundreds or thousands of articles, mentions, postings, references and asides about Judge Bork five years after he was voted down. If she’s been “Borked” why is the only political figure who gets more press than Governor Palin the chief executive of the world’s only hyperpower? If you can explain that to me, I’ll agree with you.
I didn’t write this weird article, man.
and talk about social issues instead of being quiet while the left gets their agenda passed
Sarah and Cruz and yes we will have to fight the estbalishment
Here ya go, FReepers, the RNC’s choice for us. Rinse Prebus has already pre-selected Jeb and, to the best of my knowledge, Sarah isn’t onboard.
So, if Jeb is supposed to be at the top of the ticket in ‘16, how many or you are willing to wait until ‘20 or even 2024 to get a conservative back in the WH? Or even on the ticket, for that matter?
I know what you mean, but ultimately, there is.
Screw that for pro illegal , pro homo Paul
Sarah and Cruz
No Bush...none whatsoever
Cannot support any Amnesty Liberal
Yeah, like Sarah would tie her fortunes to another RINO anchor before going for a swim.
Put Jeb Bush on the ticket and insure with 100% certainty a GOP defeat.
You posted the garbage!
NOT IN THIS LIFETIME!
No more Bushes. Seriously. No more Bushes.
Let’s look on the bright side....It couldn’t be any worse than McCain/Palin...
Hey cut the poster some slack.
It’s a relatively positive Palin piece, besides.
It would be just like 2008, one true Conservative and one huge RINO, totally unacceptable to Conservatives. Why next try 2012 again where BOTH candidates are unelectable?
I won’t vote for Bush even with Palin on the ticket. I’m not sure I will bother voting at all if they pass amnesty.
I’m not holding my nose one more time and the only republican (little r) I will vote for is Cruz. I’ll leave the rest blank or vote 3rd party.
Chirp, chirp kma GOP. I’m going to sit home in middle earth.
The Republicans, if Bohner brings up the amnesty bill, will have committed suicide and relegated the USA to become California from coast-to-coast. The east coast liberal Republicans have finally won by destroying themselves and have decided to become democrats. The liberty, once hard-won, has been frittered away by the feckless Republican leadership. We enter the dark ages of a chosen servitude to tyrants. If freedom is to be regained, it will be the same way our founders won it. The glorious liberty gifted to us by the blood of the men who came before us, has been counted as nothing by those who run Washington D.C.
Well if you were a Libertarian you could just do drugs.
Mama Bush is right!
How about neurosurgeon Ben Carson — the one who told Obama the unvarnished truth at the National Prayer Breakfast?
He made a lot of sense and is not afraid to say what needs to be said.
Yes, we’ve had enough Bushes to last forever.
Palin is not going to run. She has rejoined FOX news just like the last time. We can hope she puts a chink in the Jeb Bush run if we are lucky.
If a person is going to run in 2016, they have to already be putting together the financing and apparatus as Reagan did, otherwise they are not going to have a prayer.
I do not see Sarah doing that.
She seems to be doing what she likes. Commenting and firing up folks.
I put a Palin run at better than 50%.
It’s a very long way, until the election now.
