Rove: Jeb Bush 'Smartest Guy, Biggest Thinker' in GOP
Newsmax ^ | 5/22/13 | Todd Beamon and Kathleen Walter

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.”

I have a lot of conservative friends and no one that I know is hoping for another Bush to run.

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.

Rove is a FAILED strategist. An out of touch has-been.

Why would I believe his judgment on anything political?

Jeb Bush 'Smartest Guy, Biggest Thinker' in GOP

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.

The jackbooted thugs running the Homeland Security SS - a BUSH PLAN!!!!

Nearly EVERYTHING this bastard in the Oval Office has done was accomplished through the ineptitude of his idiot predecessor!!!!!!!

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.

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.

No more Bushes-no more Clintons and no more Karl Rove.

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.

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.

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.

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.
