  • Jeb Bush doesn't 'anticipate' a run (read on..JUST NO!)

    07/23/2011 10:41:38 AM PDT · by RummyChick · 66 replies · 1+ views
    Jeb Bush, who has made clear he isn't running for president this cycle, raised some eyebrows on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Friday night with this comment about a potential campaign: "I don’t anticipate that. You never say never. This is a standard answer that I’ve kind of learned how to give which is — you never say never, but I never rule out being on Dancing with the Stars either … there are a lot of ways you can make a difference." He went on, with respect to whether any of the current field can win, "If you recall,...

    It is a truism of political dynasties that there is a chosen heir - the one who should or would or could have been next. It is certainly apt of the Bush family. Jeb Bush is the son who was groomed for the presidency. He was the one most Republicans expected to succeed his father into the Oval Office. And today, looking at their, let's be frank, lacklustre field, many Republicans still wish he would do just that. "It's very flattering to be asked that regularly," Jeb tells me in his office at the Coral Gables Biltmore Hotel. "I don't...

    Here we go again, Rudy Giuliani edition. A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national poll shows the former New York City mayor atop the slow-forming Republican primary field. The survey shows Giuliani getting 16 percent of independents and Republicans, with nominal frontrunner Mitt Romney a point behind at 15 percent. Sarah Palin gets 13 percent.

    Back in early May, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he “can probably be talked into” running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. A new poll has done some “talking.” The CNN/(Opinion Research Corporation) survey released on Friday found Giuliani leading the pack of potential GOP candidates with 16 percent of the vote among Republicans and independents who lean toward the GOP. Mitt Romney is second with 15 percent, followed by Sarah Palin (13 percent), Ron Paul (12 percent), and Herman Cain (10 percent). The other potential candidates had single-digit percentages. “Call it a sign of how...

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Friday that a great champion would emerge from the Republican field of White House contenders to beat President Barack Obama in 2012. Bush acknowledged that the current crop of candidates had not wowed the American public. But he said as the process unfolded, one or two serious contenders would be ready to challenge Obama's re-election bid. "The president has some serious headwinds," Bush said after giving the keynote address at a fund-raising luncheon for the Phoenix House. "Eighty percent of Americans think we're on the wrong track. There's a deep cloud of pessimism that...

    Mike Huckabee's expected departure from the Republican race for president opens the door for Sarah Palin again. Palin has gone quiet after the media sizzle around her died and transferred to Donald Trump. But with Trump fading faster than a losing 'Apprentice' competitor and Huckabee now looking like he will drop out, Palin is suddenly back in this race if she wants. Huckabee, with his strong evangelical roots, was a natural to win Iowa and Palin enjoys a comparable level of support among those voters. Contrast that with Mitt Romney who is held in deep suspicion in the first caucus...

    Washington Post ^ | March 31, 2011 | Nick Anderson
    ...At the core of the Jeb Bush agenda are ideas drawn from his Florida playbook: Give every public school a grade from A to F. Offer students vouchers to help pay for private school. Don’t let them move into fourth grade unless they know how to read. Through two foundations he leads in Florida and his vast political connections, Jeb Bush is advancing such policies in states where Republicans have sought his advice on improving schools. His stature in the party and widening role in state-level legislation make him one of the foremost GOP voices on education. “He is the...

    There is probably a very good reason why, in the goo-goo eyes of so many in the Greek chorus of Republicans chanting and panting for his return to the hustings, Jeb Bush stands as an electoral colossus of the Club for Growth, the Rambo of the Cato Institute, the beefcake boy of the National Review. Consider the current crop of GOP presidential pretenders positioning themselves for a run against President Barack Obama next year. For nonstarters there's Newt Gingrich, the bumptious gasbag bloviating at the end of the bar; Mike Huckabee, the Gomer Pyle with a pulpit; Mitt Romney, who...

    Dana Pierino, a Bushie and Establishment person for sure, once again was promoting Jeb Bush as being a good candidate to run for President tonight on Bill O'Reilly (TED BAXTER), that she heard his brother GW Bush thinks he should run and so does Bush 41 and she made the case that actually Jeb doesn't have "Bush Baggage" and being a Bush right now might not be a such a bad thing. Bill and Dana were lamenting that there were no one out there who were "serious" to run. I knew what they were trying to get at. Bill said...

    Florida Senator Bill Nelson appears to be in some trouble should he decide to run for re-election. The second term Democrat is up next year. This comes as a wave of retirements have hit both parties, including Jim Webb of Virginia and John Kyl of Arizona. As of now, it's unclear if Nelson, who will be 70 next year, will run for another term. However, Mason-Dixon has put out a poll that should make the picture a bit clearer. Nelson won over 60% of the vote in 2006, a politically advantageous year for Democrats running against former State Attorney General...

    Please, Jeb. Pretty please? To hear a growing number of conservative activists tell it, the person best equipped to excite Republicans and beat Barack Obama in 2012 is a man who has no intent to run. The Jeb Bush chatter says as much about the seemingly anemic Republican presidential field slowly taking shape for 2012 as it does about the former Florida governor's stature in the GOP.

    Even as the pressure intensifies on him to consider a 2012 bid, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush indicated that he's not reconsidering his decision to not run for president. "Yes," Bush wrote in an email when asked if the door remained firmly shut on a White House campaign next year. Unhappy with the presidential field as it appears now and increasingly nervous about finding a candidate who can unite the party and beat Pres. Obama, high-profile conservatives have begun going public with their pleas for the Floridian to run.

John J. Miller, Kathryn Jean Lopez, and Rich Lowry have all come forward in recent days to sing Jeb’s praises and speculate on another Bush candidacy.

One of those, of course, is former Florida governor Jeb Bush. Rich, Kathryn, and John have all written about Bush’s appeal in recent days. DeMint, in an interview with National Review Online, calls Bush “one of the best” possible presidential contenders. “Maybe the person we are looking for has not stepped out yet; it could be a Rick Perry or a Jeb Bush.” “[Bush] would be a really good president and a good...

    The internet is alight with some buzz surrounding former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. There is now a small group that is pushing for the son and brother of the 41st and 43rd Presidents to consider running next year. This would enter Bush into the Republican primary and could play a large role in shaping that year's race. The speculation has made it to the National Review and HotAir. So we'll ask you here-- what do you think?

    John J. Miller has a cover story in the new issue of National Review that’s a compelling portrait of the accomplishments of Jeb Bush. Four years after leaving the Florida governor’s mansion, he remains one of the most impressive Republican politicians in the country, a formidable policy mind with the political chops to drive conservative reforms even out of office. So why isn’t he running for president? Bush told Miller what he’s said to others, too — he won’t run in 2012, but he’ll consider 2016. This is a mistake. Bush should run now for at least eight reasons: 1)...

    When Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana decided to announce recently that he isn't going to run for the Republican nomination for president -- and instead is likely to run for governor of his state -- you would have thought, from the reaction in some quarters, that he had committed the ultimate act of betrayal. At least one senior longtime Republican political aide thought that Pence had somehow let down his principles and his country by not taking a chance on the presidential race. Folks on the Pence for president bandwagon were in a deep funk. "Seriously, who else do we...

    2012 U.S. SENATE RACE: GOP hopefuls lining up to battle Nelson Republicans are bracing for a tough 2012 U.S. Senate primary pitting such political heavyweights as a former U.S. senator, a sitting Florida Senate president and the congressman son of a Republican icon. But to hear a growing number of Republican activists tell it, the candidate to watch is a fellow few Floridians have heard of. “Absolutely -- it’s Adam Hasner,” said Nancy McGowan, a prominent conservative activist and fundraiser from Jacksonville. “A primary for the most part is determined by the grass roots who look for the leadership they...
