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.

What does anyone see in Jeb Bush that makes them think he could turn this country around? I just don’t see that in him. I saw it in Mitt Romney and to me I think Romney would be much better and have a much better chance of pulling this country out of it’s death spiral. He is a proven business and financial leader. He was a successful governor of a state that led the nation in education. He balanced his budgets and worked across the isle to get things done. Jeb Bush’s Florida on the other hand, still can’t carry out elections in an orderly and legal way without having lawsuits over missing ballot boxes and 100+ turnout in various counties. Florida’s election system and it’s personnel are disgraces. Jeb Bush??? That doesn’t even get my engine to lukewarm. Someone better has to emerge and maybe Romney will give it another go, or Sarah Palin, etc.. Someone must rise to the challenge.

Versus Hilary Clinton.

To be followed by George P. Bush versus Chelsea Clinton.

To be followed by Michelle Obama versus some relative of the Bushes.

No thank you to Jeb.

I agree with you. Hispanics love Jeb. And that might be enough to win all those battleground states, especially Florida.

RINO File.

BTW, if Jebbie B. runs for POTUS and then loses, IT WILL TRULY BE ‘BUSH’S FAULT.’

Hispanics could care less about Jeb or little Jorge. They are and ever will be democrats.

“Republican bigwigs announce the anointing of Jeb Bush, and CBS now projects Hillary Clinton (or insert any democrat name) as the winner of the 2016 election!”

Stay out da Bushes!!

We really don't have a lot of time to prepare for 2016.

Two major hurdles:
  1. restructure the GOP
  2. control our narrative by taking control of how it's disseminated.

The smoke-filled room has moved to semi-secret meetings of money men, four years before the election. The primaries are only for show.

We’re doomed.

Under no circumstance will I vote for Jeb Bush, or any other Bush. No royal families. Sorry, you Bush’s got your share already.

Jeb bush refused to save the life of Terri Schiavo. I will never forget.

All he did was ask the judge to stop the murder. When the judge refused, Jeb curled up on the floor and sucked his thumb.

The only ones dumb enough to vote for another Bush would be the RINO's. I'll bet the media would love him as the candidate, though.

I’m interested in the idea, though I have to be honest I’m not sure how much help I could be.

How about some progeny of Calvin Coolidge?

I think I'd be far closer to silent Cal than most -- the sad thing is that people are so dumbed-down/hyped-up they can't think straight on this simple question: what is the legitimate role of federal government as defined by the Constitution? (i.e. "what is the federal government authorized?")
{Look at how many people think the President can "create"/"destroy" jobs; or make laws; or how many think "the Constitution is what the Supreme Court says it is"; or how many people think that inflation is caused by companies; or how many people think that we have a national constitution?}

Never Ever will I vote for a Bush. We don’t want a royal family. The Kennedy family was enough.
