Skip to comments.Rove: Jeb Bush 'Smartest Guy, Biggest Thinker' in GOP
Posted on 05/23/2013 8:32:45 AM PDT by MissTed
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is the smartest guy, the biggest thinker in the Republican Party as it looks toward winning the White House in 2016, GOP strategist Karl Rove tells Newsmax TV.
Six months ago, I would have said, No, he's not going to run, Rove tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview. But maybe he is. I certainly hope he keeps a very strong voice.

And so it begins.
Stuff it Karl.
Not another chance, Rove
Why does anyone talk to Rove about anything....
The one time I agree with Jesse Jackson. “Stay out da Bushes!”.
I actually hope that Jeb runs. He’s the worst possible Rove candidate that could challenge conservatives in the primary. He’d be much easier to defeat than others.
I see a Bush / Rubio ticket, just not in the TEA leaves.
See what happens when you talk to the same small crowd all the time. Mediocrity becomes excellence in the eyes of that small crowd.
Rove is a FAILED strategist. An out of touch has-been.
Why would I believe his judgment on anything political?
No. Not another easily duped “nice guy.” Gimmie a street brawler, please.
The new edition of the Biggest Loser....
Dole, McCain, Romney, and now the Coward of the County, Schiavo-killer Jeb!
Can we just all agree to completely distance ourselves from anything coming from Rove from this point forward?
I hate that guy I really never vote for him I didn’t vote for Romney I’m never going to vote for a FAKE conservative.
Death to the GOP.
Shut up, Tokyo.
The Bush name has been destroyed, Karl: You were a major player in that stupidity, so reap what you sowed. Even the lo info GOP voters won't go for anyone with that last name again.
So they finally got their fill of Cruz, Paul, and Lee and stripped them of their R's, eh? Leaving Jeb as the smartest guy in the GOP? Kinda like the Taller Than Mickey Rooney Award. You can be very short and still win.
Thanks for the heads up, Mr. Rove.
We need that poll function back on FR so conservatives can get the vetting process started. The RINO wing is getting busy.
Rove is a nitwit and so are all the bastards in the Bush Klan.
LOOK at these demons involved in the IRS scam. They were appointed by BUSH!!!!
ROBERTS was appointed by BUSH!!!
Our FAILED, EXPENSIVE, BLOODY experiment in “democracy” in the Middle East - a BUSH PLAN!!!
The jackbooted thugs running the Homeland Security SS - a BUSH PLAN!!!!
Bailing out the banks - a BUSH PLAN!!!!
Nearly EVERYTHING this bastard in the Oval Office has done was accomplished through the ineptitude of his idiot predecessor!!!!!!!
Bush! Excepting for the last Bush who gave us positive harm with the ascension of the “The Divine One;” the Bush family is composed of men who promised so much and delivered so little.
Please go away.
And take Jeb with you.
I’m sure Jeb is a nice guy and very bright.
That said, it’s time for a dynamic, new and energetic conservative who will help take back this country.
A go along to get along candidate simply cannot make the necessary changes to take back the country.
The candidate needs to be hard charging and energetic. Someone who inspires and get people to want to join the crusade. SOmeone who takes the fight to the enemy and doesn’t lead timidly from behind.
Biggest reason that I don’t want Bush to run is that I believe the same thing will happen as the last election. Romney was the only moderate/liberal Republican against a field of four or five more conservatives. Unless the conservative bloc coalesces rapidly to one good conservative candidate, Bush will win the primaries running away while the four-five candidates knock each other out. Bush would easily garner 30% of the vote like Romney did during the primaries...just enough to win a whole slew of primaries along the way.
Yea yea....corny I know, but not a chance in hades this guys gonna vote for ah nother Bush....ZERO% chance.
I left OUT the “PATRIOT” Act, “ISLAM IS A PEACEFUL RELIGION” and half a hundred OTHER idiotic things that moron did.
NO MORE BUSHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh Puleeeze!!!! Nobody wants Jeb Bush for President. Give it up Tokyo.
Only positive I can say about Jeb is he would be better than Hillary. But that is not saying much, is it?
I still remember that crazed expression on his face on election night when he realized that his Mr. Massachusetts Moderate wasn’t going to win against Obama.
If Jeb is the “smartest guy, biggest thinker” in GOP then the GOP is in even bigger trouble than I previously thought. It also doesn’t say much for Rove if he considers Bush a bigger thinker and smarter guy than himself.
Just keep on bringing Rove out; it demeans the republican base as well as the independents and mostly angers the left. Repubs stay home, dems come out. Go away, Karl. You are toxic. Hannity/Fox needs to get that through their head. Rove’s time has gone by. He's pushing Jeb already because Jeb is working in the background on the amnesty bill and you know who that is..the Gop-e.
They have been pushing him since 2006.
I will support and vote for whoever the pub candidate is but come on Rove.....I wouldn’t trust him , Rove, if my life depended on it..
Karl Rove always leads the GOP into disaster.
Hey Rove - We want a DOER - keep ‘your thinker’! I can think for myself.
What Rove is telling us, albeit between the lines, is that Jeb will do the bidding of the globalist bankers so he is now authoriozed by them to toss his hat into the political fen. Select him if you like globalist NWO. He has the rockefeller seal of approval now.
We’ve stopped buying what you are selling Mr. Rove.
Dear Lord, guide our course.
Rove was the keynote speaker at the GA State Republican Convention last Saturday. “No RINOs” buttons (with the international circle-and-slash symbol) were very popular.
Rove’s “management” of Bush’s message, or lack thereof, led directly to Obama.
But there are quite a few Democrats that would like to see it happen.
We can. But, you can't beat something with nothing. Big Mouth Rove attracts attention. Hannity has that man crush thing going on.
Conservatives need to get as busy as the RINO wing already is.
Because he's The Architect! (Hey! Who took my football?)
No thanks. Even his Momma said it best, “No More Bushes in the White House”.
