Son: George H.W. Bush wants Jeb to run
The Politico ^ | April 24, 2014 | Maggie Haberman

Posted on 04/24/2014 11:11:12 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Barbara Bush may believe her son Jeb should pass on a 2016 bid because there have been enough Bushes in the White House already. But her husband, former President George H.W. Bush, disagrees and thinks Jeb should go for it.

So revealed Jeb’s younger brother, Neil Bush, in an interview with CNN on Thursday that shed additional light on the conflicting sentiments within the former first clan about another potential Bush presidential run. Neil Bush spoke about his father’s desire to see another son seek the White House and said Barbara Bush’s cautionary words won’t affect Jeb Bush’s decision.

The comments from Neil Bush came amid feverish speculation about what the former Florida governor will do and were among the most candid, on-the-record assessments from someone inside the close-knit family.

Neil Bush described the reaction from his family when his mom said ahead of an event at the George W. Bush presidential library in Texas that there had been “enough Bushes” in the White House.

“We’re sitting in the waiting room of the hotel waiting to go to the Bush library event, and mom said that, we were all watching Jeb standing over in the corner nervously, just, like, what’s your response to that?”(continued)

How could Jeb be any improvement over Obama...he’s already said he won’t enforce immigration laws...

I had a scary thought (besides another Bush moving into the White House)... I thought who actually would move in after the Obamas got done with the White Hut? Seems like a “last tenant” kind of scenario, with the Obamas leaving it uninhabitable after squatting in there for so long. And you know how much trouble it is these days to remove squatters. Ugh.

34 years of this family. They destroyed the spirit Reagan brought to this nation.

America has never been the same since George Sr. beat Dukakis(by default)in 1988’.

We’ve been ruled by Ivy League fools who can’t even build greatness with $17 Trillion of debt!

Fine people, but I wish they would have chosen a different profession.

“He should consider being VP though.”

Why?

All of these spoilers are there to divide the vote so we can’t get a real conservative nominee. Please unite in the primary so they can’t slip through the cracks like they always do. Things are dire. It’s over if we can’t do this.

Why should we vote for the family who basically took all the progress Conservatism made under Reagan and turned around and surrendered to the DEMs? This is all about TRADE!!!! Just as W's term was all about trade and expanding government. The morons in the two house GOP Majority under W's tenure gave him more powers and more programs to increase the size and powers held by federal agencies. Worse was the damage W and Rove did to conservatives in the primaries.

A well organized effort is going on both within the GOP-E and media to make certain nothing changes policy wise meaning the supporting of GOP-E as front runners. I want a POTUS who is looking out for the USA and not focused on their long time Trade buddies in Communist China.

The man is weeks away from being 90 years-old. Which is terrific, the Bushes seem to stay thin and have good longevity. But notice that the libs trot out Republicans when they are ancient and have gone “soft” politically, or in the in case of GHWB, even softer than he was already. They are pulling the same stunt with Bob Dole. Like they did with Barry Goldwater in his waning years.

We don’t need any more Bushes. They are recipe for electoral defeat or, if they win, Establishment liberalism (Rockefeller Republicanism).

Looks like the Bush family might be suffering with a case of self-importance. God resists the proud.

I’ll vote for Hillary twice, once legally and once illegally before I vote
for another Bush. And I despise Hillary.
