Jeb Bush won’t rule out
2016 presidential bid

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jonathan Easley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 10:36:01 AM

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said Monday he would consider running for president in 2016. Speaking on NBC’s “The Today Show,” Bush was asked directly if he could rule out a bid in the next cycle. “I won’t [rule it out] but I’m not going to declare today either,” Bush said. “That’s way off into the future,” Bush added. “I have a voice and 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.” Bush did not actively consider running in 2012, eventually

Comments:
Christie is the most popular Republican in the country?? Jeb Bush loves Christie?? Really? We don´t need another Bush to run for the White House in 2016. You think the Democrats treated Romney badly, they would be like rapid dogs against another Bush.

I ruled out a Jeb Bush candidacy for President in 2016. No way in the world would I vote for a big government RINO Bush.

He may not rule out running, but "We the People" can rule out his chance of winning.

There is such a disconnect between them ´n us, that it just seems surreal to consider his possible candidacy.

I´m sure the Bush family is nice, but I don´t want another member of that family running for president. I´m tired of dynasties in this country. I voted for George W. Bush, but the Bushes are too liberal on some issues like immigration.

His "we´ve lost our way" phrasing reveals him as an intellectual loser. He´d give us a third term W. Oy.

Our way is clear and steady...liberty, small government.

OH.DEAR.GOD.NO.

Not another Bush
Not another Clinton
ABSOLUTELY not another Obama

We should be smart enough now to reject these dynastic families. Of course, considering the American electorate - smart is a relative term...

If the moderate wing of the Republican party is upset about the Romney loss being the result of Conservatives staying home; wait until the results of a Bush nomination come in. Against my better judgement I voted for McCain and given the alternative I voted for Romney, BUT no way will I ever vote for another Bush. If we cannot move away family dynasties controling politics in this country, then we are no better than Pakistan or Syria. The same goes for Clinton.

Unfortunately, many of the mindless will scream and insult while proclaiming that Bush is the only hope for the future of the Republican Party. Let them!!

Remember when the accusations on these threads were that Palin pieces, whether pro or con, were posted only as an opportunity to "bash" her? Would that shoe fit the ongoing Jeb Bush postings?

Maybe, or maybe not, but I have nothing against Jeb Bush, who apparently is a man of honor and integrity and was a popular governor. Beyond that, why not wait and see?

I don´t care about dynasties. I just want a true conservative. No RINO´s, no problem. But we need to find that person and start support him/her now. The press will attempt to destroy the Rubio´s, Paul´s and Cruz´s before 2014. Rove will also join the Democrats and the press and tell us why we shouldn´t support these guys. They systematically destroyed Palin, Bachmann, Cain and others. They made it so we as conservatives would be afraid to vote for them. Rubio´s too young and inexperienced. Paul´s like his father and is extreme. Cruz is loudmouth with again with no experience. So we might as well vote for another RINO or we´ll be giving the election to Hilary.

Jeb needs a job. One of the most lucrative jobs in the world is running for president. Live off donations for 3 years. Hire your family and friends at huge salaries. Lots of ways to pocket all kinds of cash. And, most importantly, someone to carry your luggage.

That´s why they do it. The minute outflow exceeds income from contributions, they drop out and live off the hidden spoils, regardless of what they tell you about incurring enormous campaign debt. Which, of course, they then have to have fund raisers to pay off.

What a sorry bunch of people politicians are.

With all of this outside money raising that the Obama´s are doing, an the push to keep Michelle in high profile, look for her to make a run in 2016. Just saying. She would have all of the Black vote, 75% of Hispanics, an 60% of the Woman vote.

...the two party system is vital. The retention of the current naming of those parties is vital. Democrats stand for Equality and Republicans stand for Freedom.

The Democratic Party has succeeded to prevail in pressing forth the argument that Equality, regulated and imposed by large central Government, is good. Think about that; how inept does the Republican Party establishment need to be in order to lose a debate where freedom becomes secondary to faceless regulation and enforcement.

He may run and he may get the Republican nomination but he will never get the office. He will never get my vote I´m done with big government Republicans. I held my nose and voted for McCain and to a lesser extent Romney but I won´t do that any more. Besides the msm has already given the job to Hillary so she can continue the destruction of the country.

If we want a true conservative, it isn´t going to happen with the republican party. Jeb B is a perfect example of the definition of insanity. Why try to lose yet again. We either purge the pubbies of people like bush and rove or form a third party. Sure, it may take a couple of cycles for the lo-fos to get desperate enough to elect a conservative, but with the likes of bush, mcain, boehner, and graham and christy, we will lose again anyway.

I agree Bush should not run because this country is not fond of dynasty´s. with that said some of the comments here are the stupidest I seen in a long time. This Bush is a RINO, he was a hell lot more conservative than Perry or any other republican governor. It amazes me that so many of you post about how liberal he is without knowing his record. Just about the lowest taxes in the nation, the 10 10 10 rule( I bet most posters who bash him don´t even know what that is) Remember Teri Schiavo I guess not, ya that was real liberal of him. I think what bothers a lot of people is he doesn´t hate brown people.

In previous years, I´ve defended the Republican Party, arguing that conservatives need to take it back rather than voting 3rd Party and thereby guaranteeing Democrat victory.

After last November, and watching the current behavior of the GOP, I´ve thrown up my hands. We need another alternative.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through
