Jeb Bush Quietly Lays Campaign Groundwork Through Foundation (sigh!)
Buzzfeed ^ | Wednesday March 6, 2013

Posted on 03/06/2013 7:04:55 AM PST by Bigtigermike

“The chatter is he's up to something,” says one Florida operative.

If Jeb Bush decides to convert his media tour into a presidential bid in a couple years, he won't have to look far for a campaign staff: The well-funded education foundation he runs out his office in a Miami hotel is stacked with former political operatives, a large communications team, and a rapidly growing staff whose work stretches into 40 states.

It is common practice for undeclared presidential candidates to build a campaign infrastructure under the guise of a political action committee, but Bush appears to be laying the groundwork for a potential campaign through his foundation, multiple Florida political strategists told BuzzFeed.

"The chatter is he's up to something," said Florida Democratic operative Christian Ulvert. "He has a robust staff and has positioned himself on policy issues. You can safely say his eyes are focused on some form of higher office."

His slogan for the Republican Primary has already been announced.

“Vote Bush-The Last Time the GOP won the Presidency Without One of US was 1972 and that Guy Got Run Out of the White House!”

No more Bushes! No more Clintons! Obviously no more Obamas! We have to get out of this rut.

It’s 33 years since Bush Sr. was chosen as VP despite his poor grasp of economics (Remember him knocking Reagan for voodoo economics?) It’s been 21 years since the Great Stainmaker and his commie wife sullied the White House and raised lying as president to an artform. And the commie Obamas? Forget it!

Time to clear the decks, Jeb. Get lost!

No. Not this time. Not again. The RINOs, every election, force us to vote against the other guy rather than vote for our own candidate. They shove who ever they choose down our throats...."or the other guy will win."
I'm sick of it. No more head games.

No Conservative = no vote. It's not worth it anymore. No matter who wins, the tax slaves still get screwed.

It’s been his turn for a while. I knew Jeb would come up 2 cycles ago.

If we don’t all get behind a single conservative candidate it’ll be 2012 all over again in the primaries.

They didn't learn their lesson with Dole. They didn't learn their lesson with McCain. They didn't learn their lesson with Romney, and now they won't learn their lesson with Jeb Bush.

The sooner the Republican Party collapses because of all this internal rot, the better!

This is like coming into the theater in the middle of a movie, settling in, then realizing you've seen the movie before.

Several times in fact.

It feels as if we are caught up in a political version of Ground Hog Day.
Except for us, the story repeats itself every four years instead of every morning.

But we're still stuck in Gobbler's Knob.

Then someone needs to step up to the plate. Regardless of how one feels about Jeb Bush, it's s smart move to get one's campaign operations in place as early as possible.

I can’t malign the guy based on who his ancestors or siblings are nor on his name. It’s unjust to put him in such a caste rather than judge him as an individual.

I’ll vote against him because he is not a conservative and he seems like he says stuff not out of conviction but because some campaign manager says he should.

So while potential conservative candidates sit on the sidelines twiddling their thumbs, Jeb is getting a campaign machine in place and this is somehow the liberal media's fault?

Another Bush will make us wax nostalgic for Mitt Romney. At least he didn't have anywhere near the affection for illegal aliens which the Bush family does.

Check my early positing history in late 2011 and early 2012. When everyone was piling on Romney, I said he was just a place holder for Jeb because even four years of BO wasn't long enough for the people to forget Bush II.

Eight years, however, might be enough to let them settle for Bush III.

If the RNC had a pair they would tell him to cease and desist.

IMHO they should be focusing on....

* Winning the Up and Coming Replacement Seat in Mass ( Kerry )
* Looking for a Senate Candidate for NJ when the fit finally hits the shan with the Menendez Issue in NJ, and....
* Working on a Strategy to hold the House in 14' our last line of defense...

I’ve been a faithful Republican voter for decades now.

But I won’t be voting for Jeb Bush. I make this statement as a public declaration, and I will live up to it.

I won’t be voting for Chris Christie, either. I will vote for _other_ Republicans on the ballot, but I WILL NOT be voting for either of them. I’ll leave that area of the ballot blank.

If after not one but TWO disastrous losses to a ‘rat as destructive to our values and heritage as is Obama — if that is all the Pubbies can offer up to me, my answer is “no, thanks”.

I’ll be 67 in 2016. I’ve just grown tired of voting for losers.

I’d rather see the Republican party die. If it does, there will be no choice except to replace it with something else — the proverbial “third party” that many around here say can never work.

I wonder if a similar sentiment was shared by members of the Whig party in the late 1840’s and into the 1850’s.

The Pubbies seem as ineffectual as ever, particularly in the months following the 2012 elections. There is, however, one thing that they EXCEL at — and that is marginalizing themselves. The Republicans are well on the way to becoming the “white dwarf” of American politics — there to be seen, but not much else.

It brings to mind the movie “Thelma and Louise”. I didn’t watch the entire film, but others have said that a recurring theme in the movie was that every time they came to a fork in the road, they took the wrong turn.

Similarly, every time the Republicans in Congress come to a point where they must “engage” Obama and the ‘rats, they “take the losing turn”, and make any kind of victory impossible. Not now and then, but EVERY time.

What’s the use of believing and voting for such losers?
I realize your opinion may be different, but that’s mine.

Arrivederci, Mr. Bush!

“Jeb Bush Quietly Lays Campaign Groundwork”

Quietly? Any louder and we will need earplugs. He is EVERYWHERE, and the mainstream media is loving it. That tells the Stupid Party that they are doing something right (they are, from the enemy’s perspective). They are starting very early in picking the RINO this time.

There are people here that would indeed vote for Hillary or even Nancy P. if the alternative candidate did not think *exactly* as they did.
