Posted on 01/13/2012 7:03:54 AM PST by Individual Rights in NJ
he endorsement from Bush, who despite prodding from members of his famous family and prominent Republicans decided to sit out the 2012 contest, is the latest sign that the Republican establishment is coalescing around Romney after months publicly griping about finding another candidate.

Each day it seems more and more it will be Romney, and that I, along with a lot of other freepers, will not have a vote we can cast for a Republican in the 2012 general.
-IRINJ, standing here paralyzed as I watch a 20 car pile-up about to kill a group of children (metaphor!)
The establishment is desperate to get Romney crowned.
I am ready to fire Hussein, even if that means Mitt. Hussein is far worse.
So will that make it his turn in four years?
Mutt is far ahead at the present time, is part of the GOP establishment, can be managed by the lobbyists, and I'm looking for a job that pays well but doesn't take a lot of brain power or hard work.
Typical progressive bushite bullsh!t!
Kind of like death by the chair or death by firing squad.
The elitist Bushes are for the elitist Romney.
This is why I -never- use the term “RINO”.
People like Ford, Bush 1, Bush 2, Bush 2.5, Boehner, McCain, Scozzafava, Murkowski, Lott, Christie, Powell etc. really ARE the GOP.
People like Reagan, Goldwater, Palin and each of this year’s candidates who were beaten to pulp and eliminated are the outsiders.
I know many of you regard yourselves as the ‘base’. Sorry, from the perspective of those who run the GOP we are mere field hands. Useful, productive, and unfortunately necessary, but NOT to be let into the house except on special occasions and NEVER to have a word in the household management. Take your rations of spam and cornpone and be grateful, is their expectation.
This year we need to crush the bastards, just as in 2010 we SAVED these bastards.
The rant is over, the resolution is not. These people must be beaten. The subtle leftwing party will reduce us to the same level of servitude as the crass leftwing party, it will just take longer.
“Jeb Bush to endorse Romney before Florida primary”
So Jeb clearly has no intention of ever running for POTUS.
Are you implying that Mitt will be our guy every single election until he wins? Or, do you mean Jeb?
Sorry, I’m confused.
Sure he does. He’s following Newt’s example of endorsing Scozzafava. Reasoning is if Newt can get away with endorsing a RINO, so can Jeb. /sarc
This country is so screwed.
I hope Jeb never runs. He was a good Gov here in Florida but we need him to go back to Miami.
That is the most out of touch comment I've read lately.
The Bushes are and have been supporters of Romney from the gitgo.
FReepers who thoink there is a commection between Perry and the Bushes and Rove are... are equally as stu...out to lunch.
I don’t even pretend to dabble or understand Texan power structure, or politics.
I was born and raised in NJ, educated in Colorado ( 4 years), and have been an adult and professional for about 7 years in Manhattan, now. I turned 30 yesterday!
In a literal geographic sense I am a NE conservative, but it is funny my values seem to be more in-line with Texans and the heartland. WHY? because they are Constituional ones lol!
Thus this “Northeastern Manhattanite Republican” won’t be supporting Mitt in any election, in any way, ever.
I must say, as an outsider I am not thrilled with Perry. His record is really strong on a lot of my priorities, but not immigration. I always also thought it was weird that a NE (Connecticut I think they are from?) CC Republican family like the Bushes were so dominate in Texas. I would have assumed there would have been a pretty tough as nails structure already in place since the day of 1800.
I want you folks to put up a fortress wall and anything less is just not cutting it for me =). I’ll gladly come down and help ya’ll with the work.
Jeb is setting himself up for 2016.
Not only field hands, but badly outnumbered field hands at that; it's the Republican primary voters who keep the whole scenario going.
“Jeb is setting himself up for 2016.”
Yes he is. I don’t think Bush 2.5 will quite make it to 3 though.
I doubt he can beat Hillary, but if she doesn’t run, who will? Howard Dean?
