Jeb Bush is back and some think he's looking presidential
Miami Herald vai McClatchy ^ | Jan. 30, 2010 | Beth Reinhard

MIAMI — When Jeb Bush left office four years ago, his public appearances were as scarce as bi-partisan man hugs.

He didn't want to upstage his successor in the governor's mansion nor his brother in the White House. Instead, he quietly cashed in by joining corporate boards and an elite speakers bureau, penned policy essays and gave infrequent interviews to conservative media.

But in recent months, as the Republican Party of Florida has grappled with a leadership vacuum, Bush's political profile has grown as fast as the national deficit ...

What is it with this family, they think they're the Kennedys? First "Read My Lips" followed by "Mission Accomplished" and now "Terry Shiavo" wants a piece of the American pie. I hate to agree with Jesse Jackson but STAY OUT OF THE BUSHES!

... followed by "Mission Accomplished" ...

Now, I've always thought you were better informed than to fall for the media lies about the "Mission Accomplished" banner.

No more Bushes - ever.

I just don’t care if he is the most conservative of them.

Our country’s cosnervative values has been served up for slicing up by this family of disaster.

Another Reagan would be fine or a Thatcher if there was one born in this country, but NO MORE BUSHES.

Right. Two Bushes were more than enough. We don’t need another RINO in the pack to muddy up the waters.

I was not a fan of Bush I. I like George Bush,II. From what I have read over the years I think I would like his brother even more. I see no one in the Republican field that would do as good a job has Jeb.

That said, he has no chance.

I have no particular objections to the performances of the other Bushes as presidents. I do object to family dynasties, especially in a country with over 300,000,000 people. Its not as if therre aren’t others out there.

We need someone who is a true conservative, and I do not trust the Bush family any more. Not only do they wobble on conservative core principles, but they commit cardinal sins of hiring B and C players and then become stubbornly loyal to them. We need an A-plus conservative who is dedicated to having nothing but A-plus players in every appointment they can make.

My exact reaction. Enough of the political royalty. Jeb, your family is wealthy, you’ll be ok, go start a business and be productive.

Thank you for exactly saying what I thought when I saw this article. These family dynasties are like monarchies without the pomp and circumstance.

It will never never never happen. Jeb Bush won’t be running against a democrat, he’ll be running against his brother, and multibillions have been spent already on that campaign.

NO MORE BUSHES! They are ALL part of the elite, progressive, NWO agenda.

Don’t get me wrong, I liked GW Bush, but he did his fair share of putting us on the path we’re on now.

NO THANK YOU!!

MA was the event that proved once and for all that Democrats would still attack the military for political reasons, and that the MSM would report lies and deceive readers in order to help Democrats.

That “Mission Accomplished” banner was put on display on the carrier USS Abraham Lincoln prior to a televised speech given by George W. Bush on the ship on May 1, 2003.
The speech announced the end of major combat operations in Iraq. The guerilla war soon followed.

I always understood that it was the sailors who placed the banner on display, prior to George W’s visit.
