Will Jeb Bush Ever Run For US President?

Tue Jan 20, 2009 2:51 am

Will Jeb Bush ever run for US president? Will he get it? The rumour is...... he will.

Let's separate him from George W Bush for now.

No considering what a mess W has left the USA in, there is not a snow balls chance in hell that Jeb will run. That is the only good thing to come out of W's presidency.

The Bush name was highly regarded because of George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush has permanently tarnished that good name. I think it's safe to say most Americans have had enough President Bush's.

God I hope not.

Don't know much about him - but the one world government and new world order theorists have been all over his father and his brother for moving us toward a single world government.

I don't want to listen to that again if another member of the family gets to the White House.

Aside from that - I don't think any one family should be in the White House three times in two generations.

He can run but if he expects to be elected in the next 50 years, he'd better change his last name.

Whether he is good or bad, we do not need these dam family names over and over again. We have over 300 million people here, I would think we have other names that are not politically connected that can do the job just as well as a Bush or Kennedy.

Or Gore. Or really anybody other than George Double-U.

Either way ... as Robin Williams put it, you have to feel bad for a family where the smart one is named "Jeb." Jeb would probably make a better leader than George Double-U, but I honestly would not want him in the White House anyway.

I doubt it. He has his own baggage from a daughter with a drug or mental health problem to his overdoing the support for the comotose woman who some wanted to pull her life support from.

Florida is seeing major problems right now from climate change, enviromental deteriation, a number of devestating hurricanes in recent years which has led to exponential raises in property insurance, rising property taxes, a collaspe in the value of homes and real estate, deeply affected by the economic crises. Many of those issues developed and occured during his Governorship.

I also think there is going to be very wary eye toward any more Bush family members in politics for the forseeable future as they have had their turn and GWB ended it.

You mean the one where he was accused of being about to introduce a new tax and he replied "read my lips: no new taxes" and some of the media tried to spin a subsequent tax increase as a "new" tax"? It depends how you look at it, I suppose.

Huh? Occupying Iraq was the mission of Gulf War I? Since when? I thought the mission of Gulf War I was liberating Kuwait. Silly me. I thought Bush I was told by his advisors there were not enough American troops and support to march to Bagdad and take out Saddam, so, on the advice and knowledge of his advisors, he stopped at Kuwait. At the same time, he pissed off a little known and radical sect of Islam known as al-Qaida because Bush I decided to build a US air base in Saudi Arabia. They wanted no foreign forces perminantly in their holy land. The rest, we all know.

Absolutely not, in fact history has now proved without a doubt that they made the right decision in 1991 to not push on to Baghdad and topple Saddam.

You don't have to take my word on it though, listen to this interview with Dick Cheney from 1994 and be astonished at his foresight. He states their judgment at the time was they were able to achieve what they did with few casualties (146 or so) and that they asked themselves was how many more casualties toppling Saddam was worth and their correct conclusion was "not many".

While Jeb Bush is well-regarded by many Florida residents for his service as Governor of Florida, his brother's legacy has almost certainly ruined any chance Jeb may have had to run for President.

Going forward, he may be tapped for a Cabinet Secretary post by a future Republican administration. But otherwise I think he'll make multi-millions in the private sector and live a very comfortable life, just like W.  sarcastic

I thought Jeb would be a candidate in '08. Seemed like the logical progression. He could have held his popularity among the NeoCon crowd, and hoped the Dems didn't get behind any one candidate. The fact that it never happened (and that he walked away from the FL job) made me think that he must have had skeletons in the closet.

I'll say this watching George W. Bush and Laura depart the Capital and the welcome they had in Midland I really think they are happy to be out of Washington, I think they have been looking forward to yesterday for a while now. They seemed very happy to be going home, unlike Clinton who wouldn't leave.

Monday Morning Quarterbacking from Luv2fly. Gotta love it. How exactly did Bush, Sr. "fail" with Iraq? Desert Storm still is regarded as one of the best military operations we've had. The mission of Desert Storm was not to topple Saddam's regime - it was to get the Iraqi army out of Kuwait, at which, we along with the ally nations who supported us, succeeded quite well.

Another Kennedy running - you can certain it will happen. Ted's son Patrick - a Congressman from Rhode Island since 1994 - would be the right age for a run in 8 years.

But he has got to find a wife and have a couple kids before then.

He's got some baggage, but as the older generation gets smaller those will be less of a liability.

Tim Shriver, Eunice's son, is probably a good candidate, but hasn't been elected to anything yet.

Arnold cannot run unless an amendment to the Constituion is passed, maybe Maria will run.

Robert's children have been in politics. Kathleen was lieutenant governor of Maryland, Joseph was in Congress.

Neil was the other Bush expected to be a force in politics, but after his messy divorce won't happen.

The way I see it, Obama will be reelected in four years for a second term and then once he's done Jeb Bush will run in 2016. Yeah I know you guys are saying that just because he's W's brother he wouldn't have a chance of winning, but you have to think that in eight years the criticism/remembrance of the most recent Bush won't be as sharp as it is today. I'm sure that people will eventually be able to separate him from his brother and judge him fairly for who is. He did have two pretty successful terms as Governor of Florida by the way...Anyways, those are just my thoughts.

Of course they are happy to be out of Washington. Do you have any clue how difficult it must be to be Mr. and Mrs. George W Bush? I'm surprised he and the Mrs. didn't sprint to Marine 1. I actually felt bad for him while watching the inauguration proceedings. I can't recall ever having seen anyone look as uncomfortable as Bush did when he was sitting through President Obama's inaugural speech. For a fleeting moment, I truly felt bad for him, and I despise the man. But you know what? He made his bed and under different circumstances I'd be inclined to say 'screw him'. Unfortunately, he is the one who has screwed all of us.

I personally like Rudy Giuliani , I've met him in person and I witnessed first hand how he literally brought NYC back from Wild West days. How he turned New York City around should go down in the history books as the best ever example of a politician not only making good on their campaign promise but succeeding at it beyond what anyone was imagining. The people of the City of New York brought Rudy in to fix the city, many were ashamed of what Dinkins allowed to happen in Crown Heights for example. Rudy did his job fixing the city, then he did an equally stellar job on September 11th 2001 keeping the City Calm and most importantly he was the face of the response (not Bush or Cheney). Rudy was in front of the cameras morning, noon and night addressing the shocked residents of the City, Country and even the World.

That said though the former Mayor has some personal issues that range from the way he acted towards his former Wife and how his Children don't respect him, it wasn't a coincidence that his Children never appeared with him on the Campaign. They don't like him, he treated their Mother like garbage not having the decency to tell her he was leaving her for another Woman (he had the media tell her at Gracie Mansion). While Rudy was still in the campaign for President his Daughter had a Obama for President banner on her Myspace. Then there's his relationship with Bernard Kerik, again I knew somebody who worked with him on Rikers and they were absolutely shocked the guy was picked to be Police Commisioner as it was not a very tight secret he was corrupt and had connections to Mobsters. These people were further shocked when Giuliani recommended Kerik to Bush to be the Homeland Security Head.

That's when someone actually did do a background check (something the NYPD obviously never bothered with) and found the blatant corruption, he's still under indictment on his Federal Corruption charges.

The Republicans were never going to support him for his stances, three marriages (one to a second cousin), pro choice and pro gay marriage. And the Democrats despise him, so honestly he has no future in Politics unless he wanted to try to run for Governor of New York. There's still enough support for him in the State despite all his short comings to make a Governor run realistic.

She won't run in 2012, Obama and Biden will be running for re election in 2012. And I'm not sure about Hilary in 2016, she'll be 70.

Quoting United Airline (Thread starter):
Will Jeb Bush ever run for US president? Will he get it? The rumour is...... he will.

Let's separate him from George W Bush for now.

I pray this man does not run for president. If he did go for it, I seriously doubt he would have a chance in hell of getting it. The rumor your hearing is just that, a rumor. Can we really afford to see his son try to finish what his daddy and brother didn't? Bush ruined any chance of Jeb having a future as a president.

Quoting STT757 (Reply 18):
There have been much bigger blunders, George H.W. Bush was probably one of this Country's most competent Presidents.

I do agree with that. However, what in the hell happened to his son? LOL!

If Obama and Biden are not running for reelection in 2012 then Hillary Clinton will run for sure. Even if they are, she can still go against them.

She will be 68 in 2016. She can still do it

Of course they are going to run for reelection, why wouldn't they?..

If Obama can maintain some semblance of the good will he has now, She wouldn't bother trying to take on an incumbent within her own party that already defeated her during the Primary process. Why would she want to go through that again?..
