George P. Bush: Jeb would join ticket if asked
Washington Post ^ | 6/10./12 | Suzi Parker

Posted on 06/10/2012 11:59:26 AM PDT by Nachum

In an interview, 36-year-old George P. Bush is as plain-spoken as his grandmother Barbara, who in his telling wears the pants in the Bush family. And while he says his father Jeb, the former governor of Florida, is sincere when he says he isn’t campaigning to join the Romney ticket, George P. also strongly suggests that his dad would say yes if asked: “If called upon to serve, he will,” he says flatly

Please, nobody ask.

We already have a pretty weak candidate as it is, one more Rino would just about hand zero the re-election.

Do these families get so power-crazed they lose their sense of respect?

After all the ridicule and BS both Georges put up with, who’d want any part of this?

No more from the Bush family, please. I loved W as a man, but as a Republican, he lacked. No party building, no push back against the media lies, lots of spending. Enough.

NO MORE RINOs! We’ve got an “orange juice can” to drag across the finish line to get the 0bummer&CoRegimeFromHell out of The White Crib.

The last thing we need in this country is another Bush near the reins of power. I think that family has done quite enough to get us into the screwed up state we are currently in.

The GOP should make a deal with the democrats....

The GOP will never allow anyone with the name Bush to ran for office again if the dems agree never to run anyone with the name Clinton or Kennedy.

IMO the Bush family position on illegal immigration is directly related to their hopes for George P's political future.

In other words they would permanently alter the demographic landscape of the country, and everything that would mean for all of us, if it were in the Bush family interests.

Not singling out the Bushes themselves - its just the way elitists think.

Scott Brown, I think, won Massachusetts by reminding everyone it was “the people’s seat, not the Kennedy seat”. The Republicans will lose if they try to create their own dynasty of Bushes or another few families.

Romney would never choose another RINO as his running mate.

He's more likely to choose someone more conservative than he like McCain did.

No way would Noory endorse this.

Not just for the reason that he won’t pick sides either.

If Romney choses a Bush as the candidate for Vice President that would be the greatest mistake ever committed by an American candidate for the office of President. Whatever the Bush personal virtues the American people would not elect one again.

With McCain the high water mark for RINOs, who lose, Romney can win only if Obama loses 15% of the vote he had in 2008!

This sounds like part wishful thinking on Jeb’s part. I don’t necessarily like Romney but my gut feeling is he’s not dumb enough to pull this stunt. I suppose that in itself is also wishful thinking. *sigh*

“Romney would never choose another RINO as his running mate.”

Problem is, he probably WON’T choose. Mittens seems to be very comfortable allowing his high paid consultants telling him what to do.

I worry that the “establishment” Republicans will see the vice presidency as another way to minimize the tea party.

Yes, they are THAT stupid.

Just-no. I don’t think the words “political” and “dynasty” belong in the same sentence, ever-haven’t we learned anything at all? Please, no more Kennedys, Bushes, Clintons et al in politics for awhile-make candidates work and commit themselves for the votes, not inherit them like part of their family’s fortune...

Well that would certainly make deciding what to do (the day after) Romney is elected easier:

Vote against Romney on everything, and work 100% from day one, on his removal. Anyone but Romney.

That is, the day (after) the removal of the previous occupant.

Anyone but Obama comes first though. :D

P, your dad will almost certainly not be the vice-presidential nominee, for the exact same reason he’s not the presidential nominee. Four years after his brother stepped down, the only Republicans truly eager to have a Bush on the ticket are either family, friends of the family, or extremely loyal operatives. I won’t say it’s an absolute certainty your dad won’t be on the ticket. I will say that Sarah Palin will be on the ticket before your dad will.

This sounds like part wishful thinking on Jeb’s part.

Jeb wasn't even in the room!

This sounds like some reporter asked a question and George P. answered it with his own honest opinion.

The reporter obviously wanted to get people into a tizzy and, judging from the responses on this thread at least, it worked.

Romney will not ask anybody with Bush in their name, unless you rearrange the letters.

Because they are arrogant and believe they have the duty to rule the proles. The elites think they can manage the lives of millions and expect to be rewarded handsomely for their “public service”.

The GOP will never allow anyone with the name Bush to ran for office again if the dems agree never to run anyone with the name Clinton or Kennedy.

Just a side note what makes you think Romney is in ANY way grounded in reality?!

The guy wears holy underwear, believes in gold plates and people that don’t exist, and global warming and mandated healthcare.

He is as far from reality as many get, he may think Jeb is a conservative...

Then again, maybe this would be a bigger mistake...
