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´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.
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!!
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.
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.
It would be wise to reread #25. Absolutely true for anyone who really knows how party politics works! Jeb does need a job and these pols have learned how to live very well off taxpayers. The Bushes better think twice. Conservatives have learned our lesson. Do not count on us rolling over again.
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.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
