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.

Of course, Hannity can’t get his years right. He’d mean 2016...

I voted for my last Rino in this election. No more. Maybe Bush can pick
up an illegal vote to replace mine, because I won’t be voting for Bush
Christie, or any other Rino ever again.

I don't see it that way. At first, Bachmann was winning, but she gaffed herself out of contention. Then, Cain was winning, but he either couldn't control himself or caved under false, easily refutable accusations. After that, what was left? Newt had a woman problem, and Freepers did such an effective job dissing the other Conservative choices that Romney was the only one left standing when it was over.

I'm not sure what the solution is, besides possibly agreeing who we're going to support early on and hope they don't collapse as Bachmann and Cain did.

On the bright side, Bachmann did manage to retain her Congressional seat, so maybe she learned from her gaffes. I hope so, because I though she was right on most of the issues.

Oh, and no more trying to stand by candidates who shoot themselves and our side in the butt with "legitimate rape" and "God's will" comments. We saw how well that worked.

Easy, we just ran one of the most liberal men in the history of major politcs in America, and he was the GOP nominee.

Romney kept Palin out of the convention and made Christie the keynote speaker.

If they can make Romney, who was too the left of HW, the nominee, then they can sure make the most conservative Bush the nominee.

The GOP just ran the failed governor, Mitt Romney of Massachusetts for President!

2016??? will the social structure of this country survive until 2016 under the obozo?? I doubt that it will and even if it does, if anyone seriously thinks that voting actually determines who becomes president of the US, well, there’s a fool born every minute.

Romney won the primaries by ignoring the base and winning urban areas that weren’t going to go for him in the general. Rush Limbaugh made the astute observation that Romney won Detroit and Santorum won the rest of Michigan which led to the tie due to the way we awarded delegates.

Limbaugh said Romney’s primary win map looked like Obama’s win map.

Bachmann gave us Akin, and had to spend $20,000,000.00 to barely hold on to her seat, after serving as an Ed Rollins stalking horse for Mitt, to keep out Palin.

I really don't expect to see comments like this on Free Republic.

You been in a coma for the last year or so, when those kind of comments were regular on FR?

"Give up to win!", "Principles are for losers!", "Your vote doesn't matter!", "Your vote cost us the election!"

I had hoped to have a couple of years respite. Alas...

I really, really tried to give Hannity a final chance this election. Even so, I would still tune to another station whenever the words “The Architect” spewed from his lips. I could not stomach the fat little worm Rove.

After this election, though, I’m done with Hannity for good.

OK my friends. He is from Florida-that’s good. He has a Mexican wife and speaks Spanish-that’s better. Third-his family has a history of winning the WH.
Not only will the GOP establishment push him but the Rats will be shown that they are nothing but (Bush) haters. I didn’t like them either but a GOP majority didn’t have to give W everything he wanted, thereby hurting the GOP big time. Kasich(Ohio) as VP would help seal the deal.

I'd be happy without a GOP in my future. Ever. I'm glad the Whigs are gone, too. Republicans can go to the same place.

I'm a conservative, not a republican.

I am convinced that the Bush family got their hands on data mining software described by H.W. Bush, as the “linkages” of unfathomably complex national and international relationships.

This gives their family incredible abilities to strategically plan, both for political ascension and in international affairs.

As an example of this, a year before the Republican primaries, W. Bush had already lined up all the big name Republican donors to support him. This gave him an unbeatable advantage even before the primaries had begun.

Then through a shadow organization in Texas, he arranged the construction of the “Bush family ranch” about the same time the primaries began, which would have been completed a month before his inauguration, except for last minute changes ordered by his daughters, namely an indoor swimming pool.

Thus through strategy (ironically dubbed “strategery” by Saturday Night Live), he was able to defeat all comers and take the presidency.

The next use of the family software was the planning of Gulf War II.

This data mining software is extremely powerful stuff, and assuming Jeb Bush has access to it, he will likely pursue the same course of action. So it is none too soon for those opposed to the Bush dynasty to come out swinging, before soon it may be too late.

Just shoot me now. Jeb Bush might steal .00001% of the Hispanic vote from the Dems. His nomination would be a great way for the GOP to divorce itself from the negative nonstop media associations with the GW Bush administration s/.

“Nice to know ahead of time that the GOP has absolutely no intent of winning anytime in the foreseeable future.”

That must be why we are majoring on campaigning now instead of dealing with issues and any corruption in our nation.

And of the last 4 losing Republican Presidential campaigns, only 1 involved a Bush.”
(pensive professorial “uhhhhhh...”)
“Not to mention his crusade for education, multi-cultural family and mixed ethnicity children.”
“I think Jeb could be the Democrats worse nightmare.”
