Obama’s blunders bolster Jeb Bush’s 2016 chances
Marketwatch ^ | 6/11/14 | Darrell Delamaide

Posted on 06/11/2014 7:55:15 AM PDT by jimbo123

Every political misstep by President Barack Obama and every dodge by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Benghazi brings us closer to a Jeb Bush candidacy in 2016 and an unprecedented third president from the same family.

With the 2014 midterm elections all but over except for counting the votes — yes, Republicans will win a majority in the Senate — there is a slow but steady momentum building for Jeb Bush to re-expand the Republican tent toward the center.

Is there any prospect more dreary and dispiriting than a presidential race between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton?

Who writes this drivel??? People do NOT think “gee, I hate ODimwit, I’ll vote for Jeb”.

SICK of pundits. While, at this point, I would bet that Jeb is the nominee (barf) he stands ZERO chance at being elected.

This now is the time for American Border Security to trump all other agreements, including NAFTA..

Without heavily armed troops and secure concentration camps to house the children and adults who manage to slip past these armed troops, there will be no other defense, but for WE THE PEOPLE to “fix” the problem ourselves.

This is WAR, just like Obama and the GOP-E Amnesty Whores have planned it.

BTW, Jebber Bush IS an Amnesty Whore, last I checked - - - .

I'll tell you who writes it: Democrats who know that making Jeb Bush the GOP candidate will all but guarantee a victory for Clinton. The GOP base will sit out the election, just like with Romney, and Clinton will win.

There will be tons of Democrat voters in the first few GOP primaries to assure Jeb Bush is the nominee and seal defeat for the Republicans.

If Jeb Bush is the nominee, I’ll sit this one out. I threatened it in both the last two elections. I refuse to be the Charlie Brown to the GOPe’s football wielding Lucy ever again.

“..there is a slow but steady momentum building for Jeb Bush to re-expand the Republican tent toward the center.”

If that momentum exists it’s coming from the Chamber of Commerce and Wall Street. It sure as hell isn’t coming from the American voters.

I picture Jeb Bush even now working furiously on his concession speech to Hillary Clinton.

If Jeb Bush was running against the love child of Stalin and Hitler I would sit out the election and a lot of people feel that way. Of all the names being bandied about he is about the only one that would alienate the conservative base so much that he couldn’t win against Hillary.

When everybody was piling on Romney in 2012, I pointed out that he was nothing more and nothing less than a placeholder for the next nominee in the Bush dynasty. I stand by that prediction.

Moreover, I will up the ante: If Jeb is not the nominee in 2016, then the GOPe will do everything possible to sandbag the nominee to make sure that the actual nominee is a placeholder as well.

Well, after yesterday's Brat upset, I think Jeb is going to have to find some form of employment other than in the WH.

The thrust of the article is ridiculous--absolutely ridiculous. While Lindsey Graham may have won in South Carolina--why, it is hard to understand;--the crushing defeat of Erik Cantor in Virginia, spells virtually absolute doom for a Bush candidacy.

In large areas of the United States, people have woken up to the crisis created by the present Administration. It is not an economic crisis. It is a crisis that goes to the very continuity of the values, philosophic, spiritual & ethnic of the American people. Those who have woken up, will never accept an outright appeaser of all that has been thrown against us.

Erik Cantor lost because his District was among those where the people in significant numbers have woken up. The process will go forward, and Jeb Bush will become less & less acceptable, as the awakening takes hold.

Cognitive dissonance abounds.

“Throw the rascals out” seems to be the driving force here. While Eric Cantor has some conservative credentials, he has not persevered in keeping up with the normal repair and rebuilding of fences in his district, and was seen as out of touch in regards to amnesty for illegal immigrants. Perhaps Rep. Cantor has a rather different idea as to how the influx of illegals clamoring for citizenship rights was to be handled, but he never articulated this plan to the voters back home.

It would be one thing, if the Republicans were to remake the party into more center than center-right, but so long as the Democrats lurch ever further left, with no change of course. It makes no political or moral sense to seem to be following them over to their side of the abyss.

In order to drive out the rascals, you have to be supporting somebody whom you do not perceive as a rascal.

Cool!

Let’s see if we can get more RINO’s running. Then we can watch them destroy each other the way we usually watch conservatives.

Maybe we can actually get a conservative to win the nomination after all.

Pleas everyone, tell your local RINO to run for president.

HEAR ME CHRIS CHRISTY?

HOW ABOUT YOU CHARLIE CRIST?

OHH COME ON ROMNEY, YOU CAN RUN AGAIN ALSO!

The more RINO’s the better!

Jeb Bush is the plan. “We”, on the other hand, will divide ourselves between the usual five or six splinter path candidates made available to us. The Establishment must be licking their chops.

Without some kind of Tea Party convention machine to unify around one candidate, we cheerfully repeat our appearance of the frantic Keystone Cops.

My guess, based on appearances, is that truthfully, even the Dems prefer Jeb Bush to Hillary Clinton. There will be more articles like this out of the Establishment contacts.

The nomination is Jeb’s now, if he wants it. This means the machine is already rolling for 2016 in board rooms and handshakes.

Meanwhile, “we” will be carved up between sixish individuals.

What’s wrong with this picture?

Candidates like McCain, Christie, Bush, etc. serve two purposes for liberals. First, as you say, there's the hope that conservatives sit out the election and hand it to the Democrat. But even if they don't, a liberal Republican will get elected, somebody who may not give the Left 100% of what it wants but will at least give them 80-90% behind all the rhetoric.

So having Jeb on the ticket is a win-win scenario for the Left.
