Jeb Bush moves
closer to 2016 run

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/5/2013 8:57:50 PM

In the strongest indication yet that the next member of the Bush dynasty is planning a 2016 presidential run, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Tuesday agreed to appear at the upcoming CPAC convention, long considered the first step to running for president. The American Conservative Union said that Bush will address the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference scheduled for March 14-16 in National Harbor, Md., on the Washington beltway. It will be his first appearance. Bush is considered one of the leading potential candidates,

Comments:
Oh groan. This nightmare is never going to end. Well, if he does in fact run prepare yourselves for President Hillary Clinton. Jeb Bush was a good governor when I lived in the state of Florida. However, we do not need another Bush in the White House. This is just made to order for the Democrats and the media in their destruction of another Bush.

The Establishment Republicans are determined to self-destruct, and bring the country down with them.
If Jeb Bush runs, watch Fox bring his name up glowingly at every opportunity, just like they did Romney and McCain.
I´m sure Jeb Bush would make a decent candidate and probably a good President, if too Liberal.
However, he cannot get elected in these times. He´s too much like a Democrat. The Democrats will vote for a "real" Democrat and the conservatives will HATE voting for him, if they do. After all, conservatives played nice for the last two rounds and accomplished nothing. Not likely they´ll fall for the same con game again.

No more dynasties. Except of course for the Clinton Missus, who will easily tiptoe in. Chelsea will be right on her heals. After that no more Bushes because Pubbies will be no more.

Just heard Karl Rove somewhat angrily defending American Crossroads and how much money they gave especially to TEA party candidates - got a little angry myself - it´s a well known secret he´s backing Jeb for the next time around. Not sure if he did himself much good in the process.

If Bush was serious, he should have run against Bill Nelson for Florida Senate in 2012. Then, he could have picked off a liberal Democrat senator and could have shown us what type of leader/conservative he either is or is not.

The probem is this: good people don´t want to run. They can see how corrupted and unprincipled the process has become. Even if you are good at the beginning, the good is drained out of you by the time you´ve been through the primaries.

The whole structure of politics right now is inherently corrupted like wood containing termites.

Don´t doubt for a minute there isn´t millions of republicans that would vote for him,just like they fell in line for McCain. Bush´s biggest problem is his immigration stance which might not even matter by 2016.

There´s a big difference between rank and file republicans and the activist wing of the party which is far out numbered.Republican primary voters aren´t very smart until you get to SC.

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)--which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012--has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes "rules" to follow when engaging in these activities. “People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth," the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens. "BDSM relies upon and creates trust," she says. In a message published at the beginning of PPNNE´s 2012 annual report, PPNNE President Meagan Gallagher

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Three Wm. Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center executives left their jobs after six deaths occurred that could´ve been prevented. Following a Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General report released in early February, members of an oversight committee asked VA officials tough questions Wednesday to get to the bottom of what happened at Columbia´s VA hospital. Dr. Robert Petzel, under secretary for health for the VA, admitted to Congressional representatives that there was a criminal investigation completed by the Inspector General´s Office at Dorn VA concerning the backlog of gastrointestinal cases from 2012.

When Republican Rep. Cory Gardner announced in May that he would not challenge Sen. Mark Udall, a Colorado Democrat running for re-election this year, it appeared as though Udall had dodged an electoral bullet. But Gardner has changed his mind. Reversing his earlier decision, Gardner, considered a rising star among House Republicans, will run for Senate, the Denver Post reported Wednesday. Ken Buck, a Republican district attorney who had announced he would seek his party´s nomination for the Senate seat, will instead switch races to vie for Gardner´s open House seat, according to the Greeley Tribune.

When Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wakes up in his home in Miami, all he has to do is look out the window to see the impact of the long-suffering economy on his neighborhood, where the median household income is $37,556. What he sees is driving the development of a new agenda to expand job creation, make college loans more fair, beat poverty and bring working class values to Washington. For sure, it will help his 2016 reelection effort. But, also for sure, if he chooses instead to run for the presidency, it fits that bill as well, giving him an

White House science czar Dr. John Holdren wasn’t in the mood to be contradicted on whether global warming was causing “extreme weather.” Holdren described climate scientists whose work contradicts the White House’s global warming claims as outside the “scientific mainstream.” Holdren was asked by Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions to cite scientific data that supported claims that droughts and other weather events were being made worse by global warming. Sessions then cited contradicting evidence from climate scientists, including former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer and University of Colorado climate scientist

For a week, Democrat Wendy Davis has remained silent on the matter. The media in Texas have either clouded the issue or not asked her about it. Battleground Texas has defended the practice as legal.

President Obama on Wednesday defended his 2009 stimulus package and unveiled a new initiative that would provide grants for repairing the nation´s infrastructure. Speaking from the Union Depot in St. Paul, Minn., the president cited the station, which had been refurbished and improved thanks to TIGER grants from the stimulus, as an example of successful spending to improve infrastructure and create jobs. The president said the stimulus had “actually worked, despite what everybody claimed” and announced a competition for a new round of federal grants to fix the nation’s roads, bridges and transportation hubs.

He’s gone beyond the call of establishment-ingratiating duty on this one. His point about McConnell not being Specter isn’t wrong, either. “McConnell has offended conservatives by stabbing Ted Cruz in the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it.
