President George W. Bush said his younger brother Jeb Bush would make a great president, as speculation builds that the Republican former governor of Florida might mount a run for the White House in 2016.
Jeb Bush, a favorite of the Republican establishment, has maintained a high public profile in recent weeks, appearing at GOP fundraising events and weighing in on debates over immigration and education policy. He has publicly backed at least two GOP candidates in 2014 races, including his recent endorsement of California gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari.
I hope Jeb runs, the former president said during an interview on CNN. I think he would be a great president. I have no clue whats on his mind, and we will talk when hes ready.
In a GOP presidential primary, a new poll shows Jeb Bush and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at the front of the pack, but by an extremely narrow margin. According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released this week, 14% of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents each support Bush and Paul, while 13% back former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and 11% line up behind Wisconsin Rep. Paul D. Ryan.
But the former president said his brother, who has said he won't make a decision until after the November election, is unconcerned with polling....

How deep do they want their dynasty buried? They seem to be wielding the backhoe themselves.
No, he wouldn’t!!
Alright, so he has his brother’s endorsement. Big deal.
NO he wouldn’t
Please go away.
I want another Bush in office like I want another Clinton in office.
A great president for whom? The illegals that would bury the country with their parasitic ways?
Haha! Good one!
He's more qualified to run after V. Stiviano than run for president.
Good point! Maybe they should have him manage the family fortune first!

I never agree with Jesse EXCEPT this one time.
I don’t even like looking at Jeb Bush.
W doesn’t know what a good president is, much less a great one.
Should ask them if they knew who Calvin Coolidge was heh.
They could probably learn a thing or two.
For the hundredth millionth time...NOOOOOO!!
Let's hear it for Neil! Bob Dole's daughter! Amy Carter! The stoner Gore kid! Patty Reagan!
Thank you for getting real jobs and not using your family ties to try to rule me.
One comment there states that George Bush Sr gave us Clinton and George Bush Jr gave us obama.
Jeb would gives another Clinton!
fta... According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released this week, 14% of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents each support Bush and Paul, while 13% back former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and 11% line up behind Wisconsin Rep. Paul D. Ryan.
Who do these Eastern rags/media contact for polling?
They all seem to be pushing Jeb, Rand, Huckster, Ryan and Christi. ....Rand has spent the last month losing support from Conservatives. The others have no support from Conservatives beyond the East Coast. They are all squishy RINOS who favor amnesty for illegals, along with Rubio.
Prime example of a “push” poll. I don’t think folks here in Texas or flyover country are in favor of the “pushed” possible candidates.
