“Jeb Bush Moving Closer to 2016 Run”

With Christie or Rubio as his running mate, if I had to guess.

And why not?  I mean, it’s not like if you put your ear to the ground and listen attentively you can’t here the slow, steadily-building swell for yet another Bush in the White House — particularly when we finally have the right one this time, a man not tainted with a Reagan connection, one not responsible for two wars of aggression, a cowboy posture, and some malapropisms.

This one is so perfect, in fact, that he doesn’t want principles getting in the way of the government solving our problems efficiently and effectively!

And if the last several years have taught us anything, it’s that grass-roots Republicans are pissed off that they haven’t been getting enough government fixes to the problems that plague them.  Brought on by government fixes.  They don’t want limited government:  that’s for kooks and cranks and fringe crazies who hate our country; instead, they want somebody who can step in and manage the expansive federal government in a way that everyone prospers from it.  They want a balanced approach.  And if that means making common-sense compromises on raising taxes and open borders, and refusing to be bullied by far right extremists into pushing austerity measures that would hurt children and the elderly, then by golly, we need to be willing to make that deal.

I just hope to God it’s Karl Rove and his “Conservative Victory Project” who are the ones who will propel this new kind of practical and minority-friendly rich white “conservative” into the Presidency.

Because as I noted yesterday, America is thirsty.  And the only cure is a third giant pitcher of ice-cold Bush.

#Winning.

  1. I, and millions like me, can hardly wait to vote for another Bush for president. We want politicians without principles, no matter what we say in public. We want more government, even while we clamor for less of it.

    We’re stupid, and need our betters to tell us what to do.

  2. I just hope to God it’s Karl Rove and his “Conservative Victory Project” who are the ones…

    Me, too. Because as incompetent a loser as Rove has been for years, it should be pretty easy to stop this one in its tracks.

  3. Clearly, given recent election results, the Establican candidate is the strong horse.

    Or some body part thereof.

  4. Jeb Bush has told National Review’s Rich Lowry that Senator Ted Cruz threatened to kidnap him and hold him hostage in an underground bunker stocked with explosives, citing Cruz’s anti-government fringe views as a possible motive.

  5. i don’t think he’ll run he’s too slobbery and nobody likes a slobbery bush

  6. As Rob Lowe once said, “Anybody who has followed my career knows that I like Bush.”

  7. No. No more political dynasties. Didn’t we learn from the first two Bush softies, that the Bush family isn’t suitable? Oh, and also we learned from the Kennedys. Good riddance, hic, and I’ll drink another one to that!

  8. God. The Press really wants this Other Clinton vs. Other Bush grudge match to happen don’t they.

    Assholes. All the way down.

  9. Because as I noted yesterday, America is thirsty. And the only cure is a third giant pitcher of ice-cold Bush.

    Obligatory “head for the mountains” reference.

  10. Ugh, no more dynasties, please! It’s bad enough that every Kennedy spawn is considered a ready-made Democrat legislator, lets not assume every Bush would make a great president.

  11. From John Adams (1797-1801) to John Q. Adams (1825-1829) took 24 years.

    From William H. Harrison (1841) to Ben Harrison (1889-1893) took 48 years.

    From George H.W. Bush (1989-1993) to George W. Bush (2001-2009) took just eight years.

    Personally, I think another Harrison might be about due, if we’re going to have a third president from the same bloodline.

  12. Or, more briefly:

    “Thank you, SIR! May I have another!”

  13. Can’t let the “Blame Bush!” meme die.

  14. Jeb Bush? They’re just mocking us now.

    America is under one party rule right now, today. It’s sad how a whole generation came to think bi-partisanship is a virtue.

  15. At least the Windsors and the Hohenzollerns had the candor to play King of the Hill by fighting an actual World War. Things are settled with less blood and drama now, but monarchy is still monarchy.

  16. Doesn’t matter. There is no way in hell he’d ever win; don’t even think he’d win in a primary. The media would be reminding everyone that Jeb is just a younger, taller version of the last Bush, and, Egads, we all know how bad that was…

    This actually may be a blessing in disguise.

  17. Come and listen to my story ’bout a man named Jeb,
    Rich Establican, to the manor born and bred.
    Then one day as he was pushing public schools,
    Up faux grassroots came some babblin’ fool.
    Rove that is, Brooks in tow, Scarborough too.
    Well the next thing you know old Jeb’s the nominee.
    Statist hacks can barely hide their glee!
    With a Clinton or a Bush we’ll run the country
    Into the ground and squash the peasantry.
    Tea parties that is, principled rubes, bitter clingers…

  18. Doesn’t matter. There is no way in hell he’d ever win; don’t even think he’d win in a primary. The media would be reminding everyone that Jeb is just a younger, taller version of the last Bush, and, Egads, we all know how bad that was…

    This actually may be a blessing in disguise.

    I don’t know man. You have to figure during the primary Jeb would go after every other GOP candidate hammer and tongs, with the media backing his play, telling everyone just how moderate he is, and the *ahem* conservative commentariat using words like “inevitable.”

    It wouldn’t be until he secured the nomination that the press would turn on him.

  19. Sears,

    You’re probably right about that. That said, when the press turns on him (and they will, like they did Romney), we’ll have the same result.

  20. That was awesome Charles. Yours?

  21. Thanks, yes. Took about four minutes.

  22. Well if Jeb’s inevitable then that’s it. All hail Jeb Bush, the next Former-Next-President-of -the-United-States.

  23. “and nobody likes a slobbery bush”

    Speak for yourself, fag.

  24. hahahahahaha…yeah, like we’re going to hold together until 2016…hahahahaha

  25. Jeb Bush? They’re just mocking us now.

    ha

  26. “stay out of the bushes”

    known faggot jesse jackson
