Okay dudes and dudettes…this is where you come in and answer this question about the possibility of Jeb Bush, former Gov. of Florida, ending up being the republican presidential candidate come 2016…and I’m kidding you not, I’m serious as a heart-attack!

According to many stories I’ve seen today about this subject via Algore’s Amazing Internet, it seems to be looking somewhat serious. I surely hope I’m wrong, but…I don’t think so. It also may be that the elite big-wigs behind the scenes on our side of aisle may have this all lined out, so this also could be a trial-balloon being tossed in the air as well to see what the response would be from ‘We the People‘ across this nation. – Time will tell.

Here’s one of many reports I’ve read about this today. – This is via WE:

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, along with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. However, he has been coy about his intentions.

Here is the ACU statement:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will address CPAC 2013 – the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013.

“We are pleased to announce that my friend Governor Jeb Bush will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming Governor Jeb Bush to the CPAC stage for the first time in March.”

Governor Jeb Bush was elected Florida’s 43rd Governor in 1998, and was re-elected in 2002. During his two terms, Governor Bush revolutionized the education system to achieve dramatic rising student achievement, provided substantial, broad based tax relief and economic incentives to strengthen and diversify Florida’s economy. He also initiated measures to strengthen families, help the state’s most vulnerable citizens, and protect Florida’s natural resources.

  1. We’ve had enough Bushes and Clintons, 22 years worth, look where we are. This is Rove again pushing his agenda, screw em. Rinos here, Rinos there, Rinos everywhere.
    Get out the .600 Nitro Express to impress them.

    • Right on! I’ll never again vote Bush, no more Bushes, they are GOPElite and faux Texans(Jeb, of course, moved on to Florida). They are RINOs of the first order, and gutless RINOs at that.

    Off subject but I got an e-mail, congressman Paul Braun will run against rino Saxby Chambliss in 14.

    • Chambliss read the writing on the wall and threw in the towel rather than run again. Chambliss is another time tested example of an alleged conservative going to DC and receiving the “beltway” lobotomy turning him into a RINO moderate without a spine and no leadership qualities.

  8. bigtimer,
    You were right, here’s a story by none other than Cynthia Tucker, past editor of the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation.

    • Thanks steve,

      To dear Cynthia
      Like I give a shot about you, Tucker, who has to go to Phillie to get published.

      “He might have won, but he would have been forced to defend his decision to employ negotiation and compromise with his Democratic colleagues, strategies Republican extremists despise.”

      Please check dictionary for explanation of capitulation vs compromise.

    • Jeez, they have recycled every car model except the Reagan Model, when they gonna learn, we know what we like, and we are tired of buying broken down old Hooptys.

      I am still going to vote regardless of all the reasons anyone can come up with as to why I shouldn’t waste my time.

      I have already decided to vote 3rd party, and Repubs better be very impressive just to get my consideration for looking at their message.

      I no longer care about splitting the Conservative vote, the Country is already divided by every social demographic. So I am going to stand with those that think like me no matter how small the subset.

      Besides the next Political party to hold sway in the White House is going to inherit such an out of control mess, that it might not survive the 4 year term.

      • BT-

        I really do no want to get into the third party debate. It caused a lot of arguments in the past. I still see people quoting incorrect info about the issue as valid reasons to NOT vote 3rd party.

        It leaves many to NOT vote and that is worse than a vote for a third party—WHY?? Simple, because no person who people did not vote for ever won anything. No person ever won a lottery who never bought a ticket. Almost no guy has ever got a girl he did not approach.

        NOT voting. IMO, is casting a vote for the side you do not want to win. Voting for a RINORAT is casting a vote for someone who may be worse than the other party’s candidate.

        I am going to watch to see if Baldwin jumps into the next one. Many more people are checking candidates out on the internet than used to.

        I posted earlier about the Mugwumps They all voted for the Democrat (Cleveland) in protest against the GOP candidate . Cleveland squeaked out a win because of it.

        So, all anti 3rd part folks , who do you want– Rubio??? Bush?? McCain (what a loser). Sweet heaven, the Libertarians and the CP have better candidates than any I can think of in the GOP.

    • It is ALREADY time for a New Party. The Republican Party is just another arm from the same Socialist body–exactly as Glen Beck pointed out.

      A new party of Constitutionalists, Term Limits, Fair Tax, Small Government proponents who will spend their time AT HOME, with their constituents. Visiting Washington, D.C. for only 2 weeks of every quarter; where they will live in a “barracks” environment and be insulated against “Special Interest Group” vote buying.

    • You will never win with a third party, Perot proved that. It would just hand the election to the Demos. They are salivating about it now and write articles trying to get Repos to do it. Our system does not work with three parties like other countries where they have to form coalitions to govern. When State Legislatures lost the ability to Pick Senators like the original Constitution had set up Repos lost. We control the majority of state houses right now and would control the House and Senate today effectively blunting “O”s agenda today. When we talk 3rd party it is frustration and madness, it will be the end of a Representative Republic and usher in pure Democracy and as any student of governmental history knows that is the final step prior to total Tyranny and has been since time began. A Representative Republic is the hardest form of Government to run but furnishes the most freedoms to the individual and requires the most participation of its citizenry to survive. Quit voting, form a third party, don’t vote if the candidates don’t meet all your individual standards, don’t like their religion , on and on and you simply doom yourself and all of your heirs to be. You will be in camps or exterminated. We, in the USA are the last best hope for mankind. There are no other countries to go to and no off world colonies to inhabit, our space program is now dependent on Putin. In my lifetime I never thought that even remotely possible. We now fund the Entire Chinese Military Machine. It is the fault of ALL the people who were not active 100% of the time in our political system. ” A Republic, madam, if you can keep it.”
      Ben Franklin. They gave us a Diamond in the rough which we formed into a Bright Shining City on a Hill. I’m as pessimistic as the next person, but I ain’t gonna not vote, I ain’t throwing the towel in anytime soon, I’ll wrap it around a libs neck and strangle him first. I Ain’t giving 1 single gun up to anyone for anything, anytime, I ain’t worried about FEMA camps cause I ain’t ever living in one for any reason given, I will die a free man beholding only to God.

      • Michael, I will answer briefly. I have been fighting this for years, A scholarly study of the results of the Perot effort showed that Perot took an approximately equal share of vote from each candidate.

        I posted it here about 1 1/2 years ago, I posted it on three other sites over four years ago, I no longer saved the link to the group that did the study.

        I do not want to get involved again.

        As I said then and I repeat–if enough people believe that a third party candidate cannot win, then a third party candidate cannot win.

        If enough people believe a third party can win and there is a good, solid candidate, perceived to be a moderate conservative, one could win.

        Looking at Issa today and all the other Rinorats switching to support amnesty– that would win quite a few votes for a patriotic candidate.

          …enough already! It’s a never-ending cycle!

        • Today the demographics have changed so much third party is out of the question. More important is Perot self financed himself, very little came from other sources in comparison to how much he spent. Media: They will welcome the new party till the contest gets started then turn as they did on McCain. They will crucify a 3rd party runner taking precious air time away from the Repo running. Soros crowd is on a buying spree of small conservative radio stations,1000’s of them, thats a big downer. The Demo will not have to campaign against the 3rd party, the media will do it for them. The 3rd party is gonna have to generate way over a billion dollars to stay competitive, so they will have to be self financed and turn down federal election moneys, even Trump could not afford it. A 3rd party will bankrupt the Repo party (not a bad idea) just not realistic. Having been burned so bad by the Repos last time the really big donors will not pony anything up when they see a split in the Repos. Big Donors go for winners as they expect favors, so they will side with the Demos with smaller amounts and still get the favors and stiff the repos and 3rd party. Money talks ideology walks in politics. even Reagan just barely snuck thru the primaries. Jesse Helms single handedly put his state on Reagans side which got him thru the primaries. helms was sharp as a tack, was a Radio show host like Reagan and pulled out all the stops for him. He was vilified by the media for his appearance and take no hostage attitude, but it didn’t slow him or Reagan down after that. The bankroll the next Demo has is going to approach 2 billion and a 3rd party and the Repos will not come near that. I don’t see any Charisma in the Repos or any potential 3rd party person that will touch Hilarity. Charisma is 50% of the race and the media will hype her beyond belief. Its going to be tough for the Repos, period. 3rd party, they are both in the Dust Bin.

          • Michael I am not seeking a debate, but:
            “Today the demographics have changed so much third party is out of the question. ”

            If we do not build a strong third party, which we may not, then the result will be the same as the Mugwumps. What they did was to challenge the GOP by all voting for the Democrat candidate, Grover Cleveland. At this point we have no clue as to who the DNC person will be, but before I vote for a Rinorat, I would vote for a moderate Democrat.

            An honorable enemy is my preferred choice over a hypocrite.The Rinorats think capitulation is compromise.

            I would not mind having to choose from three instead of two candidates–the third choice may be the best choice. Since Reagan , each President, has not done well for our country. Each has been , either a globalist whose God is profits and a Global World or a community organizer with “social justice” as his/her goal.

            How many conservatives chose not to vote in the last election?? Quite a few.

  14. California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa is the latest GOP lawmaker to refine his stance on immigration.

    The House Oversight Committee chairman told reporters Wednesday he can support a pathway to citizenship for some of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and that he actually prefers it to a plan that would create a second-class of citizens through alternative programs.

    Then I saw the title of this article….. I think I let out a prolonged scream that could be heard in your neck of the woods, Biggie. GOOD LORD, NO!!! I’d already determined after this last “election” that I’d probably never vote again. Jeb Bush’s name on the ballot would guarantee that decision.

          I am so tired of it that I have lost any sympathy for the immigrants and I have no respect for any politician or employer who fail to support our laws.

          I do not hesitate to say, that if our economy was booming, I would, probably, not be so strong on the issue, but I would still be opposed to illegal immigration and want it fixed and NOT by forgiveness.

          Maybe I will calm down when all Americans have a job, even if they have to take one from an illegal immigrant. Sarcasm intended.

  27. After this last election,I have decided that I’m through with the republican party.They have completely distant themselves from and blame Conservatives for the last election debacle.I blame the republicans themselves for actually throwing the election.I read some where that Romney really did not want to win I believe that is why he intentionally lost the last two debates.Except for the few true Conservatives that are still in the party they are all sellouts and will not do anything to stop the tyrant Obama as long as they think that fighting for the Constitution will lose them elections.As long as they let assholes like Carl Rove tell them who to run and what they should stand for and if they do run someone like Jeb Bush they will keep losing because Conservatives like me will not vote them.I myself regret voting republican,All that said then that they can count on Conservatives no matter what just because they weren’t democrats.I won’t even vote in the next election unless a true Conservative of a third true Conservative party runs.You all know the GOP.will never run any true Conservatives.Just like now they are trying to figure out a way to let the lawbreakers that jumped our borders get away with it just because they think that all people that immigrated to this country legal or illegal will vote them in and that is the only reason the republicans are giving amnesty. They know with this economy the way it is that this is insane, but they don’t care.I also think that they are going to go along with trying take away second amendment rights from law abiding citizens because they want complete dominance over the people and turn our government into a communist dictatorship.
