Jeb Bush in 2012 (Vanity)

Posted on 11/04/2008 7:20:28 PM PST by MinorityRepublican

Yes, we lost tonight. But let's regroup for 2012 and come back stronger than ever. That's why I support Jeb Bush, he was a popular governor of Florida and he'll win the battleground state easily. Also, in four years from now with President-elect Obama's disastrous policies, people would welcome another Bush in the White House for a return of stability.

The WRONG Bush was chosen in 2000. Jeb was an OUTSTANDING governor, who, unfortunately, is now tarnished with the Bush name.

Anyone with the name Bush will be lucky to win an election for Ombudsman of the Skagway chapter of the Gay Truckers Association...

Right! We don’t need a third Bush. The entire Bush family is soiled by this time.

There are others, give them a chance to succeed or fail.

And while we are on the subject: No more Baker, Kemp, Dole, Cheney, Ridge, Powell, Gergen, Wilson, Arnold, etc..

Is it a law that every Republican administration uses the same warmed over members of this group?

NO! IF Jeb wants to help his country he should take the Senate seat from that democrat idiot down there.

The Bushes have had two times to get it right. And fail miserable.

Jed was a great governor in florida. But he will be fighting is own name and Obama in 2012.

Not good. I wish him well.

Jeb Bush in 2012

Jeb Bush may indeed be the best Bush of the bunch, but never again will I vote for the Bush family.

Bush 41 & 43 have been disasters for the Republican Party and conservatives.

I don’t like to jump to conclusions, but I don’t think that this particular idea is going to fly! If only we Floridians had elected Jeb the first time he ran, we would have elected him in 2000 and the world would be a much better place. Now he needs to run for Senator, or maybe Governor again.

In my current opinion: Jeb Bush should not be elected to any office ever again. He does not deserve the public trust.

I am sorry to say this, but I was deceived by him. I only found out after he left office and did not address a serious concern he knew I had for a long time, about criminal conduct I reported to him. Instead of doing something about it, his brother fired all those US attorneys. Again, I am sorry to tell you all this.

Here is my parody site about the Bushes, and again, I sincerely hope no one from this site votes for any of them again. Surely there are better people to represent a conservative point of view, as I believe such a view does include respect for the law:

We Don't Follow No Stinkin' Law!

The Bush dynasty is NOT a social nor fiscal conservative blood line. Let’s not forget, Ronald Reagan did NOT want Bush senior as his running mate, the GOP forced Bush on Reagan.

“I can’t take him,” Reagan said of Bush. “That ‘voodoo economic policy’ charge and his stand on abortion are wrong.”

I will NOT cast my vote for another Bush. They are all moderates.

Well, I took the time to update my profile here today, added my favorite quote about Einstein on my profile page, and reread what I wrote earlier on this thread about
Jeb Bush (”In my current opinion...”) — as I found myself thinking about FR the other day.

Maybe the “serious concern” I mentioned in my last post here was a crime not committed by the person I initially thought must have committed such.

Or maybe such situations just can’t be addressed because of other reasons.

Who really knows why certain things happen or don’t happen?

Or maybe Jeb Bush wanted to do something about it, but it was too late or he couldn’t. Or perhaps there was some other reason.

In any event, I know right now he publicly says he is retired from politics — however, people can and do change their minds about future plans.

Consequently, if he should change his mind and want to come back to public life, he would probably want the support of his base here on FR.

So, if you are someone here on FR reading this, just remember: you should make up your own mind about a candidate.

Sometimes we grow wiser, sometimes not; sometimes we think we understand more, and sometimes we do not.

But, I certainly don’t know everything.

And, to Jeb Bush, if you are reading this: I am sorry — maybe there was a lot more to it than I recognized at the time. I certainly don’t know everything.

I should have added:

But no more Bushes in elected office.

I have come to agree with the people here who believe that scenario would be best: No more Bushes in elected office.

Well, I have concluded I really have no idea what goes in politics and I get a headache trying to figure it out. So, I would rather not have a headache. Best of luck to all.
