QUESTION OF THE DAY: ARE GREASED WHEELS IN MOTION FOR 2016?

Well, well, well…while most of us still aren’t over our disappointment regarding Dear Leader being reelected, it sure didn’t take long for another Bush to put his toe in the water when it comes to thinking about a presidential run for 2016, that Bush being Jeb Bush. I do wonder if this information that’s been put out there recently is a trial balloon or not…or if Jeb’s dead serious about this. Plus, you have to wonder if he’d put Marco Rubio on the ticket as his VP as well.

After you read this report…see what you think. – This is via DC:

Friends of Jeb Bush say the former Florida governor is starting to mull a run for president in 2016, according to the The New York Times.

The newspaper says the Republican – whose father and brother were both president – is “weighing financial and family considerations.”

Those considerations include the length of time he’s spent in office, how the recession hurt his wealth and whether Republicans are ready to nominate another Bush.

“It continues to intrigue him, given how much he has to share with the country,” Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, said of Bush.

Earlier this week, his son, Jeb Bush Jr., seemed to indicate that Bush is open to a campaign by saying in a CNN interview, “I certainly hope so,” when asked if his father will run.

    I’m ditching the Republican party before the end of the year. The GOP is useless. The party bosses have no use for conservative ideology and the leadership reliably folds like lawn chairs every time a Democrat says they’re acting mean. They don’t stand up for themselves, this nation or people like me. I hope every man and woman who truly cares about this nation follows suit. We’ll either see real,unapologetic and effective leadership emerge or we’ll ride this elevator to the bottom and scrap it out with the surviving scum. I’m ready either way.

    What a joke.
    Unless the GOP wakes up and rewrites their platform from the ground up, they are screwed in perpetuity.

    They should take a clue from what Romney said when he famously referred to “the 47%” who wouldn’t vote for him, NO. MATTER. WHAT.

    They need to start promising to give stuff away… cool stuff…
    Tattoos, hair extensions, beer, giant pants for the wimmens, fake fingernails, and electronic toys and games for the chirruns, and dope for the guys.
    I mean…get real…nobody give a rip about anything else.

    I’m with Mark Levin on this one… we have had 2 Bushes in the white house, we don’t need any more. I will not vote for Jeb Bush for president. I am going Tea Party the next time. And for goodness sake, someone please challenge John Boehner for the speaker’s seat!

    Doug Urbanski was the guest host for Rush yesterday. I gotta tell you, he nailed it about the failure of Romney’s run and of the GOP in general:

    1. Romney campaigned to lead, not to WIN
    2. The GOP as a whole needs to learn to go over the heads of the mainstream media (the way Herman Cain did)
    3. The GOP needs to start using the same tactics (Alinsky) against the Left. We have to start fighting them ON THEIR OWN TURF.

    The GOP’s lesson: We need to keep running moderate RINOs that are guaranteed losers.

    Conservatives just fill the tax coffers, we don’t get representation in government anymore. Perpetual taxation without representation because the moocher class will always outnumber us. Welcome to slavery.

    i’m with you norman, free tattoos and beer. much cheaper than all living expenses for life, and would probably sway the youth vote. how about free guns to buy the urban vote (and nra memberships). free weed and shrooms for the hippie vote. time to buy votes for conservative candidates. the trick is to buy them with short term/one shot expenditures, rather than perpetual, ongoing expenditures.

    I took down the Colors when The Punk (POTUS) won.
    I will never vote national GOP again after Boehner won reelction.
    Since ’12 & ’16 elections are already lost the Tea Party now has 5 years to build a national party.

    I’m an American first, screw the GOP

    I can’t remember where I saw this, but a former politico-type was in D.C. in ’96. On election night the Republican operatives were all huddled in some swanky bar. A few minutes after the election had been called for Clinton, another politico ran in, sat down and said, “They just decided. It’s going to be George W. Bush in 2000.”

    It is all theater, and has been for at least 25 years.

    McCain was tapped in 2004 to intentionally lose to Obama in 2008. Romney was promised the 2012 nomination in 2008, and probably a cabinet position in Obama’s “second term”.

    I doubt we make it to 2016, but if we do, sure they’ll run Jeb against Obama (yes, that’s right, OBAMA) and Rubio will also be thrown a bone of some sort. It is all fake and none of them give a shit about anything outside the inner circle. Sadly, most Tea Party people aren’t bright enough to parse all of this and will slavishly support whatever psychopathic piece of shit that runs as a “Republican”.

    Ann, I disagree. I’m Tea Party and have not always voted R (never D, but did vote for Ross). I will never again hold my nose to vote Democrat-lite. Yea, we may lose; but my vote WILL count for something.
