Neither former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., nor Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. have announced their plans to run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, but both are already speaking and acting like contenders, going head to head on issues such as immigration and education reform.

Bush said in a Wall Street Journal op-ed last week that efforts to tackle immigration reform on a piecemeal basis are “short-sighted and self-defeating.” …

RINO Kabuki. The GOP-e have already anointed Bush-Rubio to be the losing ticket of preference for 2016.

If Rubio ran to the left of Jeb on immigration, he’s made a major, major error. Jeb is terrible on this issue, Rubio’s road to the White House is an immigration reform bill that most of the conservative base can accept. It would skyrocket him as a principled pragmatist.

Exactly right... Kabuki. Playing bad cop, good cop.

They are total allies in their desires for open-borders, here trying to play a little game to fool the GOP electorate.

No Jeb!

This has to be made very apparent ASAP! What he has said recently tells me he has no chance with conservatives.

I guess that cowardly scumbag Jeb wants “comprehensive” reform, ie., a big bill that hides all the crap that would never get approved “piecemeal”.

Well, I'm sure they are indeed trying to grease the skids for Jeb, but I can't see an all-Florida ticket.
I suspect the ticket they really want is Jeb Bush/Pork Porkie.

No more dynasties.

No Bush’s, no Kennedy’s, no Rockefellers, no Clinton’s, no Roosevelt’s, no Jackson’s, and definitely no Obama’s.

No more dynasties.

So we have a Bush III attacking a supposed tea party candidate for not being liberal enough with his amnesty proposal. We have officially become the Bizarro-Republican Party.

In 2016, it will be Jeb's "turn" for the nomination--just as it was Dole's "turn" in 1996, McCain's in 2009, and Romney's in 2012.

Jeb is big on immigration reform as well. Can i get a candidate who says. “go home and we’ll let you know when you can return.”?

“Can i get a candidate who says. “go home and we’ll let you know when you can return.”?”

Yes, you can find such a candidate.

And their name is loser. And none shall remember him.

You don’t have to like it.

Just know that what you’d like has no correlation with what is possible in this culture.

O-M-G I do not think I can handle 4 years of this garbage! Give the public a break all you would-be contenders and WAIT. I’m a politicaholic and even I’m sick of it right now.

As far as BUSH - just NO, NO, NO - we the people are sick of dynasties. If we wanted that, then why not just elect Bush king?

As far as RUBIO - NO. I’ve heard enough to know you aren’t who you pretend to be.

Grrrrr......stepping off the soap box now.

Prediction:

A full court press in the fall of 2015 here on FR to support Jeb in the primaries by the usual suspects spewing the usual Team GOP talking points and sanctimoniously villifying any FReeper that opposes them. Yawn....

Will be very interesting when it comes down to Rubio vs Cruz.

I have no doubt that the next republican prez candidate will have a ‘latino-sounding’ surname. I have whimsically suggested before that all republican candidates will change their name to a latino slant. It’s our only hope . . . . Obe Wan Diego!

Even El Rushbo has done it.

F 'em. That's why we're pushing the Jebby meme now, so when they start that bilge we can say it's old news.
