(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 communityhis wife is from Mexico and he speaks Spanishhis 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."

We need NEW blood.
God help us...we need new CONSERVATIVE blood.
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.
Which year is Junior scheduled to run? And George P. Bush? And the twins? And Homer “Skippy” Bush? And Chelsea Clinton? And Dwight David Nixon?
No more Bushes.
Bring back US jobs.
End the GOP if necessary.
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
John Ellis Bush... no thanks. I don’t like his mom.
Biden/Pelosi - 2016
Are you tired? Isn’t it time to form the Tea Party to replace a certain other party?
He’ll get Bob Dole’s and John McCain’s endorsements :(
Somebody tell this little prettyboy jackass to go get a real job for a decade or so, get some dirt under his fingernails, grow some chest hair and then maybe get back to us.
The only words of wisdom Jesse Jackson ever had...
“Stay out da Bushes !”
Here’s the deal, Jeb Jr.: We’re bushed. Take your `full loaf’ and feed the ducks.
If he runs the GOP will suffer the most lopsided loss not seen since Reagan v Mondale.
I think the Bushes have done enough DooGoodery for the county. I say, let them get real jobs, let’s get their heads out of the trough, lets wait 100 years, tally the damage and then reassess another assault.
The headline in this thread is in dire need of a “Barf Alert!”
God Bless Texas
