The Hill: Jeb Bush Considering 2016 Run (stay out of da Bushes alert!)
Conservatives4Palin ^ | 11/24/2012 | Steve Flesher

The Hill is reporting that supporters of Jeb Bush are claiming he’s already considering a presidential run.

Jeb Bush, brother and son of former Bush presidents, is said to be mulling a presidential run in 2016, according to the New York Times.

The Times cites Bush supporters and friends in its report that the former Florida governor is “weighing financial and family considerations” for a future run.

Though Bush remains popular in Florida and has garnered national attention with his support for immigration and education reform, there is lingering concern that the persistent unpopularity of the last Bush to hold the White House, his brother President George W. Bush, could hinder his bid.

Money shot is at the end....sound familiar?

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I will await the liberals on MSNBC to begin telling us how worried they will be at facing down Jeb in 2016 while begging us to run Governor Palin since she’d be so easy to beat. But while they’re screaming it from the rooftops, just remember they said the same thing when Romney was forced on us, too.

16 years of Bush is bad enough. Any more is unthinkable.

just wait, they’ll declare it is Jeb’s turn, or Rick S. turn, or Rob P. turn, or any establishment GOP elite approved candidate.

The liberals probably should be worried about Jeb Bush, because he was an excellent governor of Florida and left the state in great shape when he departed. He’s an engaging person and a good speaker and very conservative, and he had a lot of appeal to everyone of any ethnic group.

His big problem, in my opinion, is his age: he is the product of a time when every candidate had to get the imprimatur (approval) of some strange, hostile, liberal GOP central command...and remember, they didn’t like Reagan, either.

I think there were too many times when Jeb stayed within the limits that they dictated, but on the whole, he’s much bolder than his brother. GWB had great instincts and did many good things, but he constantly let himself get talked out of the follow up or taking credit, and never defended the many good things that he did.

So if Jeb presents himself, take a look at him. If nothing else, this encourages us to get a line-up of possibles before convention eve, 2014...we need to decide on a slate of candidates within the next year.

He might be one, and there should certainly be others. So get behind somebody who is at least floating his or her name.

The only reason Romney got the nomination was that he had been running since 2008 and did nothing but spend his money and time on trying to get it. Santorum had also spent a year running in Iowa, which is why he won it.

So we have got to look at different candidates now and get a selection of possibles. In my opinion, Jeb Bush is a possible. And then we choose.

Here’s how I suspect it will go: Jeb vs Hillary in 2016. Hillary wins in close race. The end.

Liberals are all for it, so I say it’s over before it begins.

Palin is a Free republic masturbatory fantasy who failed to complete a single term as a tax-raising governor of a tiny red state.

LOL! That's a little harsh...but there's an element of truth there. I think she simply couldn't hold out against the massive negative pressure from the press and the GOP itself.

And I don't think she's coming back.

We need to move on. She did nothing to help in this last election and I got the feeling she was burned out. Frankly, I think she'd probably be happy if we moved on.

If a Bush wins the nomination, I’ll vote Dem and fight for secession.

He, like his brother, stood by and let Terry Schivo die. No thanks.
