Jeb Bush: 2016 decision will come later this year (after Amnesty is passed by the House...)
The Hill ^ | 1/30/14 | Mario Trujillo

Posted on 01/30/2014 10:00:15 AM PST by jimbo123

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said he would defer his decision to run for president in 2016 until later this year.

Bush on Wednesday said a major factor would be whether he can do the job “joyfully,” given the pessimistic nature of the country at the moment.

“I’m deferring the decision to the right time, which is later this year. And the decision will be based on, can I do it joyfully, because I think we need to have candidates lift our spirits,” he told a local TV station Wednesday. “It’s a pretty pessimistic country right now. And, is it right for my family? So I don’t even want to think about that till it’s the right time and that’s later on.”

I think if Jeb Bush were really being honest, he'd have stated given the pessimistic and outright antagonistic attitude of conservatives to an attempt to run for POTUS by this sorry RINO, Moderate, Democrat Collaborating jackass.

He sounds absolutely idiotic. We need leaders who respect the Constitution and limited government, leaders who know the difference between free enterprise and Fascism. Who cares how joyful or sad they are? How could any real American look at what is happening to America now, and not be mad?

We need real men and women for leaders, not inheritors of bad dynasties.

No more illegal loving Bushs. No more ‘islam is a religion of peace’ Bushs. No more Patriot Act Bushs. No more New World Order Globalist Bushs. No more Bush TOADIES.

For those who don’t know this - Jeb Bush has a Mexican wife.

He figures he will be a lock if amnesty passes. IMO it’s also the reason GWB was so soft on illegals. Destroy a country to make one woman happy.

I feel the same way myself BUT I know that when votes are cast we will have the Romney and McCain effect, most will vote the R 'as the only choice'. Screwed again by ourselves.

Bad news, FRiends. The fix is in. Not only will Jeb Bush be the GOP candidate, he will be our next president.

In order to "save America", he will lead us into what will be called "the only viable solution" - a new global currency. This has been the global elites' dream for a couple hundred years.

Jeb will be the Republican candidate for the presidency in 2016.

Can you say “President Hillary Clinton” without choking? How about “First Gentleman William Jefferson Clinton”.

Slick Willy might be persuaded to run as Hillary’s vice presidential candidate.

Why between Jeb and the Hillabeast, I might even vote for the Hillabeast. /sarcasm

Under no circumstances would I ever vote for Jeb.

I’m afraid your right. He will be the nominee. Not sure if he will win, but the globalists like to hedge their bets just in case.

I cobbled this together while GWB was still in the WH. Not much has changed in the meantime and if Jeb Bush gives it a go...look out.

The current alien invasion from the south serves BOTH the elites who run Mexico – and many of the OTHER states of Central and South America -- and the political ruling class who increasingly run the United States:

· It takes pressure off the 60 or so families who control approximately 80% of the wealth in Mexico. Without the northern “safety valve” (the United States) for their poor, those poor MIGHT be inclined to do what America’s early colonists found it necessary to do: Revolt! Parenthetically, that would be MY suggestion for them: Instead of fleeing here – and converting “here” to a larger, more poverty infested version of “there,” they ought to stay there and make “there” into their version of “here,” whatever that would be. Revolutions ARE messy and there are no guarantees that they will produce the desired result. But – according to one T. Jefferson – they are often necessary. Never forget that THIS country was born in revolution!

· For the NAFTA/CAFTA coveting US national ruling class – especially those who, in varying degrees, quest after some sort of One-World utopia run by guess who? – it provides yet another level of insecurity and tension among the indigenous populace which can be used to justify new and more draconian limits to freedom here. Instead of securing the borders, allow millions of illegals to come in and when the natives become alarmed, require a national ID card. “Your papers, please!” will soon become a phrase familiar to all. It’s Mr. Franklin’s trade of freedom for (false) security. It’s also the time-tested Hegelian Dialectic the One-Worlders have successfully worked like a rented mule.

While they occasionally squabble among themselves, the elites of history have ALL had one thing in common: They will do ANYTHING to remain in charge. And throughout that history, except for the 230 year-old experiment in freedom called “America,” most of the men who have walked the earth have lived as slaves to these elites whether they call themselves kings, emperors, potentates, sultans, czars – or presidents.

Get ready, folks. Unless some SERIOUS changes are made and the handful of Americans who CARE about liberty get involved, that history will almost certainly repeat here.

Now for the SPECIFICS of the matter:

My take on Bush's role in all of this is:

1. His long and apparently positive experience with the large hispanic population in Texas is largely responsible for his inaction on this alien invasion. And why wouldn't HIS experience with them be positive as he traveled in the highest, best-educated circles among them, not the Hispanic gangbangers and pine-straw spreaders...

2. His brother Jeb is married to a native of Mexico and his nieces and nephews are mixed blood. And before you scream "ethnocentric bigot" at me, there's nothing inherently wrong with that. But that fact -- and the first item -- DOES predispose him to a warm and fuzzy feeling for folks from south of the Rio Grande.

And if -- in some strange and metastasizing American desire for a new royal family dynasty -- Jeb should win the White House, I'd bet that HIS activities toward this alien invasion will make W's behavior look like a warm-up exercise.

Any vestige of white European culture will be a distant memory.

Sadly, there are many out there who know you're right in principle, but will still vote for Jeb and any other member of the Bush clan who runs because "he can win" or "he's the lesser evil" or somesuch.
