Skip to comments.Why Jeb Bush should run for president

Run, Jeb, run.
I mean it, despite two powerful arguments against a presidential run by Jeb Bush one specific to the former Florida governor, one more generic.

Liberals AGREE with their party leadership and stand in whole agreement behind their party. of course there are differences ironed out in the beginning. They are united and mostly they win.
Over and over Conservatives simply do no vote or stay home. Look at where we are.
STOP! repeating the same pattern or there will be another loss. MO
God forbid! God bless America.
Wapo will settle for the best lib they can get.
No one wanted Dukakis, so GHW won...no one wanted Gore so GW won...would Jeb win if Hillary runs?
No one ever really seems to want the republican candidate, they just don’t want the democrat more.
Of course...the WaPo calling on Repubs to once again nominate someone who will lose gracefully.
I’d rather have an ass-kicking competitor leading the way, like Ted Cruz. Granted, a quadriplegic could sooner climb Mount Everest than a Repub win the White House these days, but at the very least, let’s have no more gracious losers. That “the people have spoken, let’s get behind the winner” crap.
It’s always good to know what the other side wants. (not you - them) Thanks for posting.
Its just another case of the Liberal Press picking your candidate. Certainly they want him to run, you know they love the Bushes. The Liberal hard core Democrats are only a small portion of the voting public, yet they manage to hoodwink the Republicans every chance they get.
Why run Jeb Bush? Because it’s an admission of the truth: We got nothin’.
The contest will be between Romney and Bush. That would be good for Conservatives in the primaries as the field of conservatives won’t be eliminating each other while the lefty gope stands in the wings waiting to roll over the later primaries as the only one left standing. I suspect, though, that the contest will be in the RNC et al and will be decided before the primaries. There will be no visible strife. It will all be done with money flows out of sight.
...but Mitt is a Mormon!!! If he gets elected, we’ll all be wearing different underwear and worshipping demons.
Jeb is not so much weak as he is wrong-headed. He will strive mightily to drag the Republican party into the same old alliance with the Demorodents.
No, Jeb’s problem is not lack of balls but a lack of vision and he like Obama is surrounded by the same sycophantic fools that have dragged us into the longest and deepest depression since 1929-1940. In just a few more years this depression will claim the all-time record for economic destruction and concurrent record high unemployment, record loss of income for working people, record loss of labor force participation.
You are absolutely correct about Jeb being too stupid to learn what conservatives want—we want the government to shrink to half its size and to eliminate most of the federal “cabinet” level departments.
If we cut coporate and personal and capital gains tax rates, the US workforce, still the most productive on the palnet, will catapult the economy to real growth, real income growth, and massive capital formation.
Or not. I remain unconvinced there is anyone on the horizon who has the balls to do that—most especially I cannot see the will to do anything like it in Jeb Bush.
So is a right turn still viable? I really cannot say, but I am not optimistic. Too many rice bowls to guard and the entrenched bureaucracies, federal and state and local are going to be defended by any and all means neccessary.
The ends justify the means and the purpose of any bureaucracy is to reward its friends and punish its enemies.
More likely is widesporead civil disobedience, revolts in the streets as the last of the rapidly dwindling private assets held are dissipated by everyday people just trying to survive.
You can only fit so many people into a house and you can only afford so much for food, energy and transportaion before people as a rule begin to go hungry, not as an exception.
My father will be 86 this year. It will be a blessing if he could avoid watching and experiencing the absolute destruction of America.
Gee that was harsh. Meant every word of it.
he wants to govern like LBJ
I buy that—good analogy.
Memo to the GOP: With a number of exceptions, the bulk of the hispanics already here are NOT Pubbies and the new ones wont be either. Do you clowns have a DEATH WISH??
The GOP-e in the Beltway, like Jennifer Rubin, are pushing Jeb.
Jeb Bush: I’d Strive To Govern Like LBJ, if elected President
Are there any Bush people left “in here?”
Hell f’n NO. The Booshies have done enough damage to the US.
Every American who wants to run—should. Lets hear his message and vote in the primary (only for GOP) and we can select who we want to run. Mitt —s capitalist has his message, Ted Cruz a Tea Party Conservative has his—they all do. Even Trump has his message—a New York Liberal capitalist Message. Lets hear them debate and pick the best one.
