Skip to comments.The Talk Begins: Jeb Bush in 2016
Posted on 11/23/2012 9:49:54 PM PST by Olog-hai
The talk has already started about a possible 2016 presidential bid by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, but before that happens friends say hell be busy rebuilding his personal wealth and restoring his familys relationship with the Republican Party.
If he decides to seek the GOP nomination, it could put a damper on any plans by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to run in four years, according to The New York Times.
After this years loss to President Barack Obama, Republicans are looking for a candidate who can appeal to a different voter demographic thats no longer dominated by white men and women. Many Republicans believe that Bush fits the bill as someone who can attract Hispanics and other minorities without sacrificing his conservative values.

He will not get my vote.
Absolutely no more RINO votes. They’ve had their chances.
No more career politicians for me.
Maybe the GOPe enjoys losing?
I said that after McCain, but I still voted for Romney. I guess that is what they are counting on happening.
Yup, will lose my vote. Great idea, lets try to out-democrat the democrats. Why they’re called the stupid party.
No more Bushes, and no more Clintons. We need some fresh faces in the running. The GOPE is busy at this moment planning for the next RINO run. Lord, help us.
Gee, the GOP-e really DOES want the Tea Party to break off, I see. . .
The ONE thing Jessie Jackson (or was it Sharpton?) ever got right:
“KEEP OUT DA BUSHES!!!!”
Of course this isn’t the first time that balloon has been floated. ‘They’ started pimping him out for the job before the first exit poll came out on election day.
Brought to you by the same king makers who endorsed McCain and Romney....
No thanks. If that happens, I will be voting libertarian or write-in for Mickey Mouse.
“possible 2016 presidential bid by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush”
Let me think about this for a second.... ummm, no. No more dynasties.
OOps! Should read:
Still write-in for Mickey though.
Get real people! There are only less than 1000 Gope’rs.
And then there are 20+ million primary voters who will decide
the next nominee, not the GOPe’s.
Jeb Bush refused to rescue Terri Schiavo, allowing her to be murdered in broad daylight. I will never forgive or forget.
Another bag of trash that needs to be taken out. Time for another push to get this family out.
Maybe Hillary will run against him.
Add to that the people who think he nosed into the Schiavo case too much, and nobody will vote for Jeb.
At least, nobody will vote for Jeb until they do vote for Jeb.
Not a lot of fighters in the GOP right now to pick from. With the exception of Allen West, I can’t really think of any others, perhaps, Jim Demint, Rand Paul, or Thune.
The Establishment wants no one except a hierarch as their candidate. They firmly believe in big government, one which helps keep wealth and power in their hands. They wealthy who support the Democrats have the sam goal, which is to prevent the rise of new wealth that would challenge their own. Thus they must control both parties. They as much as the socialists believe in the concentration of power. What the Tea Party needs now is someone who like a Jackson is willing to challenge the Ruling Class.
I heals my nose and voted for Mcsquishy and then I did the same for Oromney I will NOT vote for Bush the Turd!
I’m ignoring that talk.
I remember back when I lived in New Orleans a period of time when I truly began to understand that we were headed to Nazi America. And that period of time involed Terry Schiavo.
It was at that time that I began to know and fear the evil that is growing in this country.
Had I been the governor of Florida at that time, I would have walked myself into her room and gave her water. if the judge or anyone else wanted to stop me, then they would have had to shoot me dead. What was done to that woman was one of the saddest things that I have ever seen.
No, Mr. Bush, I will never support you.
I can’t imagine that Hillary Clinton will run, but if she decides to, it seems it would take a diverse resume and some gravitas to run against her. Imagine Rubio against her. A newborn compared to Hil.
But, things are upside down now and entirely unpredictable, as this election proved. The generation has turned and that may prove to hold, deflating the old timers, or the Marxists may collapse us and a grown up could look pretty good.
Jeb Bush can flip Hispanics like pancakes, however, but is that really enough?
Come back, Newt.
Paul has the right mindset, but I dont know if he has the charisma to build an organization around,at least by 2016. But who knows what will happen tomorrow? Things can turn on a dime. As Lincolnonce said, I do not determine events, events determine me.”
Now would be the right time to start our new party.
Just think, then the Repubs would have to try to win OUR votes instead of knowing they could run any old dude and expect us to pull the lever.
ITA! No more dynasties either! No more Bushes, no more Clintons and especially no more Kennedys!
Tell that to the Perotians who got Clinton
Unbelievable, has the GOP learned anything? No wonder they lost, I don’t think they know what a conservative is! If they nominate another RINO who wants to give illegals the ability to break the law due to their close proximity to the USA, only to have them vote Democrat in droves, I’m done with them!
If they don’t get their act together within the next two to four years, they are finished as a party! Romney was the last RINO I will ever vote for! If the Republicans give into illegals and Democrats demands with regards to spending, I’m done with them, they will, they always bend over for the back stabbing libtards!
LOL! That's what a lot of FReepers here were saying about Romney when he first threw his hat in the ring, and yet, the lion's share of posters voted for him anyway - even in the primaries!
If you're serious, refuse to EVER vote for a RINO, even in the face of horrific prospects. This should be a non-negotiable. We should never negotiate with terrorists.
Sure you won’t.
That just happened. Maybe you held your nose and voted for Romney. But, enough of the base stayed home or voted for Johnson to make a difference. Of course, the party and talk radio hacks will make excuses and not admit it. And they passed rules that will keep them in power in 2016.
So what does everyone think Biden’s first act as president will be?
Or, if you prefer, and they force Biden out and replace him with Hillary the Stalinist, what do you think Mao Hillary’s first act as president will be.
Cuz Jeb ain’t gettin’ my vote and another RINO (don’t forget, he let the judiciary roll all over him and thus allowed Terri to be starved to death) sure as hell ain’t gonna win.
Produce your evidence that Mitt enjoyed large FR member support in primaries.
Or there could be something to those whacko conspiracy theories that the two parties are run by the same powers-that-be.
Not that I agree with that view. But it is hard to deny that the evidence points in that direction.
It has been 84 years since the last time that the Republicans won the White House without someone named Nixon or Bush on the presidential ticket.
That may be the only thing working in Jeb’s favor.
If they run him I don’t see this ending well for us. We definitely can use someone new and truly conservative, not another RINO. That just gets us burned in the long run.
Sure and we will never support Romney. You act as if we have any say in the matter. There is a reason the primaries are structured the way they are, and the rigged them further at the convention. They vowed that a "Reagan" could never stick it to them again.
But look at how the GOPE has destroyed the true conservatives during the primaries and forced us to support THEIR pick.
Ain't that the truth.
I didn’t vote for Romney in the NH primary. I actually voted for Gingrich.
Give me a break. There was a mass purging of accounts by Jim over support for Romney way back before he was the chosen nominee, and you know it. It was such a massive problem that Jim had to relent to "agree to disagree" in order to avoid losing a critical number of FReepers.
Any small number of Romney supporters could have been dismissed without a bit of concern.
I couldn’t agree more.
Rubio doesn’t have a prayer.
Look at what the left does to every conservative minority (whether a true conservative or merely a Republican).
They will hammer it into everyone’s brain that he is nothing more than a Tio Tomio.
