George and Barbara get their man:

GWB in 2000 and 2004
Romney in 2012
Jebbie in 2016

George P. sometime after they are gone

Our little Republican primary voters never seem to understand.

Agreed - I’ll write in “Grimace” before I ever vote for another Bush.

No way, no how, not now, not ever. Done done done.

I’m through with the GOP. My entire family is changing affiliation to Independent. I predict it will be Jeb Bush/Chris Christie for their 2016 ticket to nowhere.

No more Bushes. No more Presidential dynasties in the GOP. We need to nominate a real conservative. Just say no to Jeb and to Chris Christie, for that matter.

They are banking on his wife and their half Latino kids getting him in. They are just pandering to the Latino voters. Wonder what Jeb will be promising for their votes? And yes we will actual hear someone in the MSM comparing Columba to “Jackie-O” LOL they had the nerve to compare Moochelle to her. Can you just imagine the “Latino Jackie” LOL. It is a nightmare. Whites don’t count anymore at all.

Just watch. Jeb will get favorable coverage by the MSM..while any conservative will be attacked and demonized. That will last until the day he is nominated..then they will tear apart the whole line of Bush’s leading to him.
But, we conservatives make a big mistake..we should have our own party..or nominate a candidate in a pre-primary contest to centralize and focus our support. If we end up with 5 guys/gals against Jeb..well we will get Jeb.
We need to decide,,among conservatives..in the next two years who it will be.

He can’t. His Mexican mother did not become a U.S. citizen until several years after the little idiot was born....1986?

repeat after me: no more political dynasties

that means no Kennedys, Bushes, Cuomos or Clintoons

they are not all about “public service”

they simply don’t think they can do anything as great in life for themselves, personally, as trading on the family name can get for them

“We want you to be successful”

The Bushes seem to like big companies and big government company. They are fascistoids. It’s not fair for them to deregulate so others can compete. They talk free globalization on one side of their mouth, and then they restrict it here, attacking small businesses on basis that the big ones had to keep the expensive proprietary EPA compliances and what not, and it would not be fair if it was exempted for small businesses in the future.

His citizen dad would confer citizenship to him upon birth; plus I believe he was born in the US. With O, his mom was too young to confer cititizenship based on the archaic laws of the time, if he hadn’t been born in the US

I agree. They probably want Jeb to be a Fait Accompli like W was in 2000.

Personally Im already supporting Rand Paul. He is probably the only one who is willing to make the budget cuts necessary to save this country

While the Purity Caucus keeps abandoning all the other candidates over trivial reasons.

That’s how it keeps working. No conservative 3rd party would have the ability to get the stick out there rears long enough to get off the ground.

I can fully understand someone not wanting to vote for another Bush...but Jeb was a pretty damn good governor. He had coattails that gave us the first Republican legislature in 100 years.

Just finished a little research on Goggle:

“she’s (Columba Bush) a naturalized US citizen as of 1987.”

Thank the gods none of their crazy children can run for president. She was not a U.S. Citizen when they were born.

I think you’re half-right for 2016. I see Bush/Rubio as the ticket, provided the GOP powers-that-be get their way. I further predict that the GOP powers-that-be will tell the social conservatives to go pound sand; that they’re no longer welcome in the party. Not officially, mind you, but in the best politese they can muster.

Having Jeb Bush as our 2016 nominee is akin to simply handing the election to the Dims with no contest. If the stupidlicans haven’t figured out that the moniker “BUSH” spells doom for any future election, than they have even managed to outdo themselves as to the abysmal stupidity emanating from the now defunct GOP...

It’s evident that the tea party victory in 2010 did little to alter the control by the establishment GOP...in fact it’s only emboldened them, particularly on the House side.

Jeb may be a good man but, the RNC has to be delusional if they think he can win.


I can somewhat understand their thinking; soft spoken former Governor, married to a Hispanic voter, name recognition, etc.


The Fourth Estate will own him, conservatives will be underwhelmed, and the mushy middle will be easily led away.


The RNC is a joke that nobody thinks is funny.

Jeb Bush will run in the primaries against at least four or five conservatives. The conservatives will split the vote and Jeb will be the nominee. It’s been that way for the last 25 years and will be again. If he is nominated we only have ourselves to blame.

I predict most everyone saying they won't vote for Jeb Bush actually will if he is the eventual nominee.

Just like they did for Dole after saying they would not. And GWB. And McCain. And Romney.

Empty threats & the GOP knows it.

Forget about his governorship. Any sane conservative doesn’t want another Bush as a President let alone the nominee in 2016! I’m tired of hearing about how a decent guy he is, so was Dole and H.W. Bush and Romney and even McCain compared to Obama but they were either losers or wimped out to liberals

How exactly do we manage to do this? Primaries start back East, where they think RINOS are conservative and true conservatives are nut cases. That is why we keep getting RINO candidates, the choice is made for us before we even get to vote in the primary.

I'm not saying he's worthy but Jeb should be evaluated as Jeb, not simply condemned just because he was born a Bush.

Let's not forget he's the son GHW and Barb thought would be president one day, not W.

I'm not a fan of dynastic politics but if he wants to run in the primary, I wouldn't discourage him. Odds are he would not earn my support.

Sure he would get favorable or neutral coverage, unless/until he is actually elected- then they will pile on him daily just as they did the last President Bush.

Trivial?

Bush the Elder squandered the Reagan legacy in one term.

George W. left the GOP a smoking ruin, only to be brought back by the Tea Party, not the GOP-e.

And the GOP-e wants a third episode?

And don't even get me started on the inherent problems to republican government that family dynasties have created. Name-brand politics has squelched too many potential new voices out there.

I said I can understand why someone wouldn’t want to vote for another Bush.

But “forget about his governorship”? That is silly.

Romney was ripped by conservatives ON THE BASIS of his governorship....

So now we are called to IGNORE a guy’s record? Please.
