Jeb Bush, Jr. hopes dad will run for president
CNN ^ | November 20th, 2012 | Ashley Killough

Posted on 11/28/2012 8:36:42 PM PST by MinorityRepublican

(CNN) – Jeb Bush, Jr., the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, said Tuesday morning he "certainly" wants his dad to run for president.

Asked on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" if he wants to see his father make a White House bid, Bush said, "I don't know. No comment. I certainly hope so."

"Giving you the full loaf of bread right there," he continued, smiling.

Jeb Bush, the former governor, flirted with a presidential bid last year, but declined to run. With high popularity in the Hispanic community–his wife is from Mexico and he speaks Spanish–his name has resurfaced as a strong contender in 2016, now that many in the party say the GOP needs to better connect with Latinos.

"We really have to work on our ground game, have to work on our messaging," Jeb Bush, Jr. said Tuesday.

He pointed to his uncle, former President George W. Bush, as an example of someone who "showed that you can be successful with Hispanics and be Republican."

No! Enough already.

Wonder how much this engineered stunt is going to pay Jeb? He needs the money si? I thought I saw Jeb standing at an on-ramp to I-24 in Florida holding a cardboard sign saying he’d run for prez for a dollar.

This country doesn’t need another RINO and Progressive. This country also doesn’t need another Bush. Since Jeb Bush is all of that then we certainly don’t need him. I don’t want to hear so called Freepers clamor four years from now that our only choice is to get behind Bush hoping that “we” can work on him. Fool us once shame on us. Fool us like 4 times already shame on us

Seriously, no. This not “new blood” or a “fresh face” for the party...just the opposite.

We need a fresh face. We have a lot of people who by that time will what should be considered enough so-called “experience” to be viable - like Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Susana Martinez, etc.

We need the new blood - first and foremost. Second of all, a conservative who not only has the right stuff on paper but can explain and teach the philosophy and why it is correct and the opposing view is wrong - fewer people naturally understand the difference anymore and learn about it through the liberal media filter. Someone who could do this directly in fluent Spanish would also be an asset vs. through a translator so they speak directly to this audience (I can already hear the screaming from some on this...but that’s the reality of the world in which we sit right now, and I see no other way around it...the liberals are certainly not going to lighten up and we need to get into the fight and take away their monopoly). That’s a lot of qualifications for just one person...I can only think of one that fits the mold...and you can bet the media knows this too and will everything in its power to destroy him and his family.

If we’re lucky, Jeb might carry the state of Florida. Don’t know about the others, but FL might be a shoo-in. I’m kidding, of course. I don’t want any more Bushes, Clintons or Kennedys.

This is what we can expect over the next couple of years.

A new article every few days saying stuff like:

Jeb’s third grade teacher never met a boy like him. She hopes he runs for president.

Jeb’s first baby-sitter, has never forgotten him. She hopes he runs for president.

Karl Rove had a tingle down his leg. He hopes Jeb runs for president.

A secret document was found..., back in the 60s Groucho Marx predicted we would have a president by the name of Jeb Bush.

Jeb’s old university professor predicted Jeb would be president one day. He hopes Jeb runs for president.

Jeb’s old dog Barf laid a pasture patty that looked just like the presidential seal. It’s an omen, Jeb will run or president.

A porpoise has learned to talk, and his first words were, “Jeb Bush 2016.”

A six year old boy looked down in his vegetable soup yesterday, and right there were the words, “Jeb Bush”.

And old Lassie episode was found with June Lockheart and a small boy on the show by the name of Jeb Bush. He said he wanted to be president. Awwwah!

On so it goes, one emetic induced moment to the next...

CNN is lining up the RINO road kill for the next election, so they can get their Marxist messiah elected one more time. It’ll be Obamaclaus if he goes dictator, or some other flawless, perfect, can-do-no-wrong libtard otherwise. The LSM revels in being able to pick the nominee of the GOPe run Stupid Party.

“I don’t want to hear so called Freepers clamor four years from now that our only choice is to get behind Bush hoping that “we” can work on him.”

That is exactly what you will hear. Plus, “He's electable. You have to vote for him so we won't have Hillary. If you don't vote for him, Hillary thanks you for your vote.”

If he is the candidate, I'm not clicking on Jeb threads as I don't want to hear that crap again. I'll stick to prepper threads as that's our only hope of survival anyway. I can save my personal world and that's what I'm working on and the rest of the world can do what they want - count me out of the madness.

Ruh Roh, trial balloons.

Fortunately, not only does Jeb have the nepotism of the Bush family going for him, but he comes from the same elitist wing of the GOPe as Romney.

What could go wrong?

This is CNN pushing Bush, a white male. Of course the liberal media wants to run against a white male , even better if it's a Bush or a rich white male.

We need to run a woman or minority like Cain, West, Cruz etc to have any chance to win against the socialists/democrats.

Nikki Haley, Palin, Cain, Cruz, Martinez, West, Kelly Ayotte , all conservative minorities or women.

Sarah Palin endorses conservative governor Nikki Haley:

If the Republicans nominate another RINO to head the GOP, I am done, I came close to leaving when CLinton won reelection, if they nominate another Bush, I am done, the RINO’s have bent over backwards to help the Dems, Bush 2 had a majority, yet he did nothing, absolutely nothing with it!

Odumba doesn’t even have a majority and the Republicans have helped him get his way time and time again, if the Republicans allow for the Democrats to ram amnesty and taxes down our throats, the GOP is dead, illegals will never, never vote Republican and this nation will become one party rule like the cesspool the illegals refuse to fix!

Yep, they did the same with Romney, I voted for him, but I found it strange when Odumba’s team were telling the media they hoped Romney would win the nomination, the media’s coverage showed who they wanted to get the nomination, I wish this nation would wake up, it’s as if everyone is in a stupor and our leadership looks as if they have just plain given up, I fear for my niece and nephew’s future, dear God what has happened, I don’t know this America.

Is the GOP that stupid to run another Bush? Why...do they want to provide years of work for MSNBC?

Bush would struggle in the primaries as Real Conservatives and Social Conservatives know he is an Amnesty Liberal....and he wimped out during the Terri Schiavo murder scheme a few years ago

If Jeb were to survive the primaries....the Dems will be waiting for him with “Another Bush” campaign....and....they will go after him over his drug-addicted daughter.

Real Conservatives know that it is stupid and politically suicidal for Jeb to run. The GOP needs to get off its Fetish for Illegal Aliens and Hispanics....and stay out of the way so that True Conservatives and Real Conservatives can run

Junior and George P. are not eligible to run for president because their mother did not become a naturalized citizen until 1987.
