Skip to comments.The Case for Jeb Bush Entering the 2012 Race (massive barf alert)
Posted on 12/01/2009 8:51:22 PM PST by rabscuttle385
Jeb Bush is unique in that he is both unknown and known. He can certainly win a GOP primary, and can raise the money to compete with frontrunners Palin and Romney. I think Jeb will be getting more involved over the next several months, starting with the Florida senate primary. I also think Cheney is a Jeb proxy, and that his attacks are meant to undermine Obama while moving the country back into the Bush/Cheney policy direction, awaiting a new leader to take the torch from the former Vice President. Remember, Cheney earlier this year, unprompted, suggested he would support Jeb Bush for president in 2012. Considering that there are significant people in the party harping about a Cheney run, as well as a media fascination with such a run, coupled with the realty that a 71 year old with a bad heart simply will not run, opens the door to Jeb Bush taking up the mantle in 2012. Bush would fill that media desire to clash Obama with Cheney, only enhancing it.
With Huckabee and Palin potentially sitting out in 2012, there is a huge opening for someone to take up the anti-Romney position. Bush, with his vast network of connections, his organizing potential, and the generation of political chits collected by the Bush family, puts Jeb in as good a position as a Pawlenty or a Daniels to make a bid and challenge Romney. Now if Palin runs, and the field fills up, then Jeb will likely wait until 2016, or simply stay out of public life and let his son, George P. Bush (nicknamed 47 by the family) take up the presidential legacy down the line.

I will not vote for another Bush ever again!
Nooooooooooooooooooooo! Aaaarghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !
>>I will not vote for another Bush ever again!<<
So, michell obama in 2016 for you? I mean, look how great sticking to our ideological guns has worked out so far. 11 months of “hope and change” brought to you by ideological purists.
The perfect is the MORTAL ENEMY of the good.
I will never vote for another Bush! Period.
I'm not asking for perfect; I'm asking simply for something that is good instead of just less evil than pure evil.
The Bush family has brought us from Reagan to not having a single lever of power in national politics. They have done enough damage.
LOL! I love closed minds!
So Obama vs Jeb in 2012?
Good god... could it get any worse?
Not even for dogcatcher.
No more Bushes. Both Bush president were never movement conservatives. They both used capitalism as their scapegoat. As the result the movement was hurt from it
Is that you Newt?
No more same old same old.
This is your last chance with me, GOP.
No more Bush’s. Never again!
Well, Jeb is no rino,. He would have to go hard right to prove it, but it would be an easier move for him than Romney. He was a better governor—and more conservative—than Romney or his brother.

Bush wasn’t evil — just short-sighted (which can and did have evil results).
Look at the field — Sarah may be mortally wounded going into it. The entire (R) field which ran for 2008 are all 100% flawed. Our only hope was Thompson and he ended up being a wussy. Where can we look? As bad as the numbers are for teh kenyan one, we can’t mount up anyone.
Gingrich? Dead to most of us after NY 23. Steele? Please — more of a RINO than Bush ever was. Jindal? had his chance and put a big old post-it note on his forehead reading “lightweight.”
Unless someone like DeMint gets some serious obama-like traction soon, we may have to fall back to Jeb.
If you have someone in mind, now is the time. Else, it will be shelly o against Joe Schlabotnick in 2016...
Mike Pence and John Thune. You’re welcome.
Watch out because the NWO will promote their people & when it all ends up you ONLY have 2 candidates that are in the corrupt “Two-Party Cartel”. Oh how they have it set up for the indoctrinated sheeple that the other faction in this cartel is so evil that your only choice is a vote for the other faction, which is owned also by the same satanic elites.
No more musical chairs between the Clintons and Bushes and now Obamas. We could probably randomly pick people out of phone books for the president and congress and get better results. The current leadership is so disconnected from the public that they think we are here to serve them and nothing more than useful dupes.
Seeing as how I am only passingly familiar with Pence and have no idea who Thune is and I am politically plugged in, you have a big mountain to climb...
I am not saying we need Jeb -- I am saying we need realpoltik..
