Jeb Bush is back in the spotlight and thinking about 2016
The Washington Post ^ | March 5, 2013 | Peter Wallsten and David Nakamura,

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who has remained on the sidelines since his older brother left the White House with dismal ratings four years ago, has jumped back into the political fray this week with a new book, wall-to-wall television interviews and a round of public speaking engagements.

His appearances mark a change in approach for Bush, 60, who has operated as more of a Republican elder statesman since leaving Tallahassee in 2007 but is now clearly considering a run for the White House.

Sure, why not?

The elitists have been using the Bushes to run the GOP into the ground ever since Reagan left office.

Might as well finish it off once and for all with Jeb.

He can think about 2016 all he wants. Just as he doesn’t actually become the nominee.

Despite any love or hate for the Bushes, the US voter will not elect another Bush. Therefore the MSM will push the current bush for all it’s worth.

That should be the first test for anyone aspiring to the office - can he correctly pronounce the word “nuclear”.

Bush-Clinton race 2016???

On the bright side he poo-pooed Rubio’s (McCain-Grahamnesty-Shumer) amnesty plan by flipping on citizenship. Someone needs to stop them.

On the bad side he is looking to play the Romney playbook.

Everything the GOP seems to serve up nowadays, from Jeb and Rubio’s amnesty fetish, to Christie hugging Obama and sobbing over Springsteen, to the constantly capitulating Boehner/Cantor and the Congressional Republicans, to all the slimeball GOP consultants proclaiming “go gay!” to the governors like Kasich and Scott surrendering to Obamacare medicaid expansions, to FoxNews slobbering cheerleading of the crony-esque GOP establishment forces...

It’s like big, hellish, hamster-in-a-wheel nightmare. And that’s not even counting Bammy’s reign of marxist terror. All I can do is stick with the Tea Party contingent of Palin/Cruz/West, like it were a welcome oxygen-tank to a diver pinned beneath rocks fifty-feet-under.

So he wants a position in the Palin/Cruz administration? Maybe DHS or FEMA...

Well said. Sad situation, but the Tea Party is an encouraging development

Would be a tremendous, collosal waste of money. Those who are weak enough to donate to whatever Karl Rove’s scheme is called (because you know he is behind this) would be wise to keep their money in their wallets for a better, conservative candidate.

It depends.

How do you say "nuclear" in Spanish?
