Skip to comments.Jeb Bush, Jr. Endorses Huntsman
Posted on 08/10/2011 9:49:54 AM PDT by feralcat
Presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman has snagged an endorsement in a key battleground state - Jeb Bush Jr, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Rumors of a "major" announcement from the Huntsman campaign have been circulating through Florida for days, leading many to speculate that the former governor himself would throw his weight behind Huntsman. It was his 28-year-old son, however, who accepted a position with the campaign and detailed his support in a statement released Wednesday.

I don't know much about Jeb Bush, Jr., but if he is anything like his uncle, then it just goes to show that RINOs congregate in herds.
I didn’t even know Huntsman was still in the race!
what a wierd thing for Jeb to do.
That ought to put the nail in te coffin lid on Jeb’s future
Elitist RINO’S must stick together.
That’s one way to kill Huntsman’s campaign: a Bush endorsement!
This is the guy who has his own idiot campaign staff continue to misspell his name. If his staff can't figure that out, he has as much chance of winning the nomination as a ham sandwich.
I wish the Bush's would go away already. These spoiled brats are like Meghan McCain. Spouting for attention when no one cares.
Yeah, I was kinda thinking that myself. While I personally don’t think Bush was as bad as his current press says (not to say he was good), there’s no way a Bush endorsement helps anyone. It doesn’t really matter which Bush.
Never heard of Jeb Jr. One trust fund looking after another
Huntsmans campaign is like a car with no brakes on a steep mountain road. Not much little Jeb can do to stop that.
Stick a fork in Huntsman, he’s done.
MSNBC can’t say enough nice things about Huntsman, which is all I need to know...
This endorsement makes sense for Jeb. He doesn’t want a pubbie to beat Bam in ‘12. This would hamper his chances in 2016. Got to agree with old Jesee Jackson when he said “out da Bushs’”.
Huntsman is a shill for the Chinese.
Give it a rest. I’m sure George P. and his solid conservatism redeems this kid. Ronald Reagan sired two of the biggest air-headed embarrassments in the history of the World. So what?
In a related topic, one of the reasons I haven't jumped on the "Ted Cruz for US Senate!!!" bandwagon yet is because of the kind of endorsements he'd been getting.
In addition to the Rand Paul endorsement, he's been endorsed by Jeb's other son, George P. Bush . George W. and Jeb Bush have a long record of supporting people with terrible records on immigration, government spending, etc., and it's safe to say Jeb's three kids are even LESS conservative than their dad and uncle.
Now, endorsements don't tell us everything, and it's quite possible that Ted Cruz is an otherwise solid conservative. But I'll take a way and see approach to verify that. (in Cruz's defense he has an detailed list of conservative policy positions on his page, whereas David Dewhurst doesn't even have an issues page on his campaign page, and that's a big red flag for me)
I still wish Michael Williams had sought the Senate seat.
Jeb Bush Jr ?
This is a huge endorsement.
Who’s next ? - Larry the Cable Guy ?
IMO, the less we hear the name Bush in the next year and a half the better off we’ll be electorally.
Another political genius heard from. Yeah, this should really do it. Nothing like a brainless relative to really kill a political future. Just like the Reagan kids.
Or maybe Larry the Cable Guy’s kid!!
Jeb Bush Jr. isn’t running for ANYTHING in 2016. He’s the 24-year-old SON of Jeb Bush the former Governor.
God, this is just HILARIOUS. Announce a major endorsement, and it turns out to be a nobody CHILD of a famous politician.
I guess Huntsman is hoping that people won’t notice the Jr., and think it’s actually the Governor.
Which is stupid, because if anybody actually starts saying that, it will force Governor Bush to come out and deny that he’s endorsed — which would be a decidedly NEGATIVE thing for a campaign.
Yes, the kiss of death.
Thank you Jeb, for reminding us of what an open-borders, Obama-friendly, pathetic RINO you really are.
He’s also got the endorsement of Beaver Cleaver.
He's done. These RINOs are see easy to spot.
Actually, I think Rick Perry's soon-to-be presidential campaign asked the Bush family to kindly keep the Bush name away from Governor Perry, so we're seeing the Bush name associated with Huntsman instead. LOL
Brilliant Perry campaign strategy! I say brilliant! :)
i’m sick and tired of rinos and especially the bushes.
And there you have it. Another Bush lives down to expectations.
This should enthrall the “conservative” radio talking heads who had such man crushes on Jeb; guys like John Gibson, touting Bush as the best candidate out there.
I heard last night on a FOX show that there is no love lost between the Bush clan & Rick Perry.
It’s understood that Jeb is a JR. That was the point being made, that he is doing his father’s bidding to see which way the wind is blowing.
No more Bushes, No More Clintons, No more Obamas. Someone like Reagan would be a good choice, though.
Hes also got the endorsement of Beaver Cleaver.
That's an easy one: Barack H. Obama
Why is it weird ? Two years ago Jeb Jr got on board Marco Rubios campaign when he was polling at 3 percent and that didn’t work out so badly. The son is heading up Gen H, the campaign’s new youth and young professional outreach program as an established figure in the state in his own right. I don’t see anything strange about it.
The elder Bushes I’m sure are all holding off endorsements at this point.
I respect the other candidates. But in a time of such global upheaval and strife, America needs a serious, experienced leader to restore Americas promise, and that leader is Jon Huntsman.
Let me be the first one to flame you. Huntsman is slime. He's a global warming enthusiast. He's de facto for gay marriage. For crap sake man he was Obama's Ambassador to Red China! He's even worse than Romney.
Jeb Jr. for Huntsman huh? In only slightly less significant news the fly I swatted the other day endorsed Fred Karger with his dying breath.
Zero’s puppetboy in China a “serious, experienced leader” ? Son, you need to step away from the crackpipe.
It is worn out and has no real meaning anymore!!!!!!!!!
[Maj Hochstetter voice]: What is this man Huntsman doing here?
