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.
Im considering Im going to think about it later, he said. So I dont wake up each day saying, oh, what am I going to do today to make this decision. Im 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. Its a pretty pessimistic country right now. And is it right for my family? I dont want to even think about that until the right time and thats 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....

I’ll be waiting with bated breath. /sarc
Don’t bother. You are a loser.
Jeb, Huckster, and Santorum -— all the re-treads -— need to go away.
Gee another Bush vs Clinton election.
“At this point, what’s the difference?”
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.
Monarchy by fixed election machines.....
If the Gelded OLD Party shames us thrice, they are doomed. Stay out da f’n big grubment Bushies.
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”.
He basically called her senile, in a nice way. Did you watch the video?
Bush versus Clinton redux. We have ruling families vying for the throne.
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.
The old Mena Airport coalition.
[ Gee another Bush vs Clinton election.

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...
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you've got to choose
Every way you look at this you lose.
Jeb, just say NO and go away. Thanks.
Exactly! The Three Stooges.

Gelded Old P****ys
That is my new name for the GOP....
I’m not opposed to Jebbie running for president so long as its for a country south of the Rio Grande.
