Jeb Bush will make decision on presidential run late this year
The Daily Caller ^ | January 30, 2014 | Jamie Weinstein, senior editor

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Jeb Bush is considering a run for the White House — no matter what his mother thinks.

With two recent national polls showing Jeb among the top potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders, a local Florida reporter asked the former Sunshine State governor Wednesday about a potential run.

“I’m considering — I’m going to think about it later,” he said. “So I don’t wake up each day saying, ‘oh, what am I going to do today to make this decision. I’m deferring the decision to the right time, which is later this year.”

The son and brother of former presidents continued by laying out his thought process.

“And the decision will be based on, can I do it joyfully? Because I think we need to have candidates lift our spirits,” he said. “It’s a pretty pessimistic country right now. And is it right for my family? I don’t want to even think about that until the right time and that’s later on.”

Jeb also addressed comments by his mother, Barbara Bush, who has spoken out on at least two occasions panning another run by a member of the Bush family....

After some of the statements she has made since 1992, I can’t think of a Mom I’d like to see thrown under a bus more.

I’m as dismayed by the rise of political dynasties in our supposedly republican polity as the next person here at FR, and would probably vote for a third party candidate if faced with the Bush dynasty v. the Clinton dynasty in 2016, but a grown man not taking his mother’s advice on a matter within the sphere of his chosen profession hardly constitutes “throw[ing] Mom under bus”.

GOPe Desperate for a candidate that they might consider some even thinking of voting for. I’ll bet the doners just want someone who is not a TEA Party.

Pathetic. They have no interest in a majority party, only one that greases the wheels of comrade capitals.

Might be a great time for a third party as long as the third party candidate doesn’t freaking pull out in the summer like Perot did....

Perot could have won in 92 but he pulled out when he was on top......

Lot of conspiracy tin foil wrapped around that one...

I would say no one who has run before...and no one related to anyone who has run before...should get into the 2016 race. The past several cycles have been an abomination, and we need all new blood to get this party out of the hell it is currently in.

A PPP poll just found that Palin has higher favorables among GOP primary voters than Jeb—or any other Republicans.

And she’s an actual conservative who isn’t pushing amnesty.

THANK GOD JEB IS RUNNING! I thought for a terrifying second that America would abandon it's Royal Family Monarchy and try going back to a Constitutional Republic.

....and that JUST won't do.

“At this point, what’s the difference?”

Bush would never remind anyone of those words, and the results would not be different either. The Hildebeast will win in an absolute, total, complete landslide, but she will beat ANY RINO that runs against her. We just don't have the same kind of country anymore.

As soon as I saw that Christie was going to be cut off at the knees, I immediately thought they’re going to trot out Jeb. Hillary vs Jeb. . .I literally shook my head after I typed that.

In reality, unless there’s a mass awakening, what difference does it make? I suppose the only upside of getting a traitorous GOP scumbag elected is that the left might actually protest the illegal, treasonous crap he gets up to now and again. The media might even start investigating things in an attempt to educate people as to what is going on.

Wow, I just realized I had a tiny bit of unfounded, unrealistic hope left in me. I honestly didn’t think there was any left. :)

Most of the country regard Bushes to be some kind of radioactive. Jen has zero charisma, personality, energy, principles. Democrats have to be salivating at the prospect.

““At this point, what’s the difference?”
Bush would never remind anyone of those words,”

great point he would spend most of the time praising her like he has constantly in the past.

If Bush is in Im out...

Not to worry after the gravediggers in the house past amnesty this year there wont be any republican party anyway.

End of the year. Hmmm.

That probably messes up Hillary’s schedule. I think she would not run if Jeb is in. Not in these black and blue times for Democrats. Besides she knows he could match her dollar for dollar.

Not all that sure she runs at all, unless it’s a cakewalk strewn with money, and some schlub RINO for an opponent.

Jeb Bush is considering a run for the White House — no matter what his mother thinks.

****************************

Imho, it's his mother who has been pushing all of the men in the family to run. Also imho, she is, and has always been, relentlessly ambitious.

I don’t see it happening. His wife is a total negative. She’s as elusive as Bigfoot, always rumored to be a troubled marriage. She’s got some baggage from trying to sneak jewelry and clothes in through customs from a trip to Europe. Its a non starter.
