Jeb Bush: I Won't Rule Out 2016 White House Run "But I Won't Declare Today"
http://todaynews.today.com/ ^ | March 4, 2013 | Eun Kyung Kim

Posted on 03/04/2013 8:47:39 AM PST by Biggirl

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush won’t confirm he’s a candidate for the next presidential race, but he sounded like a White House hopeful Monday, declaring his party in need of leadership. “I have a voice, I want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the Republican party can regain its footing, because we’ve lost our way,” he told TODAY’s Matt Lauer. Bush said he wouldn’t rule out a run in 2016, “but I won’t declare today either.”

His chances for nomination ought to be nil but I’ve learned to never underestimate the GOPe’s capacity for self delusion.

He is running, he is the only hope the GOPe has. And if enough conservatives run to split the conservative primary vote again he just might win the nomination. Right now I see 2016 as a battle between Jeb Bush and Rand Paul. GOPe vrs Conservatives winner take all. I don’t see Sara getting in, I see her strongly backing Paul. It will be fun.

Palin will nebver run for any elective office. She had her chance. She was poised to go after her Tax Day speech to the Tea Party in Madison in ‘11. She took a pass. Her sniping from the sideline on FB is the extent of her involvement. I for one was disappointed in her refusal to run. But her time has gone. In my mind she is best remembered for single handedly delaying and almost killing Obamacare with two words,Death Panels. But beyond that soundbite she offered little substance. Her use of the phrase “common sense policies” became as empty and annoying as Barky’s use of “fair and smart”. As for ‘16. Jeb Bush will not be in the mix but don’t expect a tea Party or Freeper conservative to be the nominee. Despite the polls showing 40% as conservative, Tea Party or Freeper conservatives are probably less then 30% of the electorate and will never build a majority. Demographics and entitlements make that impossible.

Bengazzi (sp) killed Hillary in 2016. The voters would have to be complete idiots to elect her. Even low info voters “get it” that Hillary dropped the ball big time in Libya.

The republican wing of the democratic party has probably already decided the a jeb bush nomination for the president is “inevitable”. Any challengers will be crushed and/or destroyed in the court of public opinion by the republican wing of the democratic party, with the assistance of the media of course.

I was going to make a joke along the lines that before Jeb Bush gets elected president I’d be having gay sex on a street corner in San Francisco but I decided not to post that because there is not chance Jeb Bush could ever be elected.

Oh, and by the way ——

RIP Terri Schiavo

Never again. Either there's someone for the SLAVES to vote FOR, or there isn't. If neither is going to lead on behalf of the taxpayer slaves, neither deserves that kind of political support. The American people have been used and abused enough!

If the republicans go any further left, they'll fall over. If they choose to continue to do this, all the tax slaves can do is prepare for the fall of the U.S. Instead of going to the voting booths, they'll have to go to their bunkers instead, because the fall of the country will NOT be pretty.

Personally, I think it's too late anyway. Oboma spent so much, he broke the bank. The only way to survive is for oboma to do the right thing and use every resource the government has to give a massive tax break to the American people (instead of using it on the muslim brotherhood in the middle east)- but he won't do that.
I think he's destroyed the U.S. on purpose (took the restrainer out of the way), because his goal is to see the Jews destroyed. As a muslim since birth, I believe he feels it's his duty to get it done (destroy Israel) and he can't allow the U.S. military or the people of the U.S. to get in his way.
According to louis farrakhan, leader of the the nation of islam, barrack oboma is the one they've been waiting for. Never forget this.

I hope we survive the next four years (I doubt it), but....There won't be any coffee after the collapse, because there won't be any clean water. Today, water pumps run on electricity. There will be no electric companies. The people who used to work there will be at home trying to protect their families from the raging EBT zombies.

I don't think we're going to make it through the summer. The feds can't keep printing money to keep up the lie forever. Oboma already did us in, so we wouldn't be able to protect Israel from obomas muslim caliphate. (He wants Israel (the Jews) destroyed, and he's not going to let us get in his way. That's why he's starving our military, and feeding the muslim brotherhood caviar and fine wine.)

The American people are going to mourn the day they allowed this man into the White House weather we make it through this or not. I didn't care for Romney at all, but he would have never delibertaly worked against the U.S. If he would have been sent to the White House 4 years ago instead, the economy would be fine right now. His heart would have been in this country - and not in mecca.

You hit the nail on the head...complete idiots.

however, Benghazi may have killed her 15 years ago, not today. Short attention span of the voters (plus new RAT voters pushed out by the schools)and time will do the trick.

Saw him speak two weeks ago. A friend had front row seats and we were among a few conservatives with 1500 liberals who buy tickets for 10-12 speakers a year from a Guest Speaker promotional organization.

From the front row for 55 minutes: A portly and affable 60ish white guy wearing a shiny gray suit, a poorly fitting shirt and rubber-soled shoes, all ready for Goodwill rummage. Not the slightest attempt to be critical of the present administration or the Congress. No attempt to criticize Romney or his campaign or the media's treatment of both, basically saying Mitt lost beause he had fewer votes in swing states as if the media had no role. A scratch your head moment for everyone sitting there including the local 'progressives.'

Even no praise for his brother's eight years in contrast to the present regime, although he did thank those who prayed for his father's recovery from his recent bout with pneumonia.

If you did not know who he was, he would come across as a local Dem running for school board. He boasted that his singular achievement was raising student testing scores for Florida schools and chided our Northern California audience for our poor showing.

That was it. A drone attack from a droner with a powder puff for a warhead. If there is another election and he is the GOP nominee, he'll make Romney look like Reagan.

Look for Jesus to come “soon and very soon.”

Oh yeah. We're watching prophacy happen right in front of our eyes.

"Blessed are those who read aloud or hear the words written in this prophacy, and observe the things written in it, for the appointed time is near.
Comfort one another with these words."

"Look up! For your redemtion draws neigh."

(This is why the left doesn't want people to take biblical prophacy literally. It tells us everything the left leaning hearts are doing and where they're going with it.)

Two Bushes were two too many. Both were disasters and resulted in us getting 8 years of Clinton and now 8 years of Obama.

The senior Bush gave us Iraq I which resulted in the near overthrow of a tyrant but one who kept the Muzzies under control It also resulted in the loss of US lives and the spending of billions of dollars.

The second Bush brought us back to Iraq where the tyrant dictator was overthrown thereby resulting in a civil war, the loss of many American lives and the waste of hundreds of billions of dollars. Then, the second Bush got us involved in another war in Afghanistan supposedly to get Osama Bin Laden. Well, we all know what a disaster that has turned into.

Oh, and let’s not even get into his out of control spending which was the precursor to the spending by the present occupant of the White House.

One more Bush? I have two words for that, and they are not Happy Birthday.
