Jeb Bush Says He'd Consider Vice Presidency
Wall Street Journal ^ | April 20, 2012

Posted on 04/20/2012 8:27:01 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says he'd consider running as vice president with Mitt Romney, but doubts he'll ever be asked.

Bush tells the conservative website Newsmax that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is "probably the best" choice to share the ticket with Romney, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. Bush said he hopes the freshman senator is offered the No. 2 slot and accepts it.

Rubio has said repeatedly that he isn't interested in leaving the Senate.

If another Bush doesn't get near the presidency for 100 years, it will be too soon.

And guarantee another GOP loss, not that the prospect of Romney isn't already doing that.

So it begins...

And don’t think that Romney wont pull such a move, he is as depth as a pencil.

We are a democracy, not an aristocracy. We do not have to find leaders from a small pool of a few hundred “blue bloods” - Bush or Clinton or Kennedy or Obama.

With one of them Bush boys sniffing around the back door of old Mittens bus, it can’t get much worse.

After two days I turn on FOX and there's Rove all giddy about Jeb as if
he's picking all the winners.

I believe what is happening here is the RINOs think they are a shoe in so
they can go out and pick whomever they wish. IE someone who will invite
them to WH dinners. Rove must have a seat in the WH promised from Mittens.

I say F-em all. They will screw this up so badly that America will pay dearly
for decades, and for only a few years of power... Selfish jackasses.

Yea, I'm also a Navy Officer Brat, so there's the language.

I don’t think Romney is dumb enough to pick the brother of George W. Obama for VP.

Jeb Bush and Bush 41 were in the Oval Office in Feb. and were having a good old time with the Evil Bastard named 0bama.

1976 was the last Presidential election[Including Primaries] that didn't involve a Bush or Clinton. Amazing.

Rubio has said repeatedly that he isn't interested in leaving the Senate

Rubio could stop Obama's reelection all by himself. All he'd have to do is state,

"I would welcome the opportunity to be selected as our parties vp, HOWEVER I like the Usurper in the White House am not a Natural Born Citizen so like Obama am not eligible."

HE is not picking the next VP. The same elitists who rammed his nomination through will tell him who will be on that ticket! They think we’re so damned dumb! It will be the final straw for me.
