Republican Presidential Candidate Should Be --JEB BUSH

This popular Florida governor has the ability to unite fiscal and social conservatives and win in 2008! Not to worry about name recognition.

Republican Presidential Candidate Should Be --JEB BUSH

Jeb Bush is a good man, and would make a fine president. He is also unelectable - at least, he's unelectable right now. Potentially a viable candidate in 2016, or even in 2012 if a Dem wins in 2008 and the country is displeased with its choice - but not this time around.

There are those who have claimed all along that the 'wrong Bush' won in 2000, expressing a preference for Jeb. It doesn't matter at this point. The Dem base was worked itself into a lather of hatred for George Bush, and independents are distrustful, as evidenced by the recent mid-terms. The Republican party shouldn't nominate Jeb unless it actually WANTS to throw the 2008 presidential election.

I must agree. Duncan Hunter is the only visible candidate that can save the country. Newt could, but he shows no inclination to do it. Jack Kemp could do it, but he has not sought the spotlight in recent years. Jack Kemp is the one who understands economics the most and we face an economic disaster because GW couldn't find his veto pen.

I think Rove and Co. "strategerize" with a wider scope of the country's situation for longer terms benefits for the country; whether you view the current condition of the world's politics a mess due to Republicans' control (libs view) or an inevitable confrontation of ideologies in an ever-shrinking world, I think conservatives will be back around as early as 012 with a slight defeat in 08 to remove any doubt by 012 that the mess in the world is due to Dems undermining everything for personal gain, ie, Pelosi trying to push Murtha (MRSA) over her personal rival. I'd like conservative consistency but I like to think there's more going on than trying to win, win, win when your team is in rebuilding mode -- sometimes you have to put in the new QB over the experienced to give them reps and get them real-world practice, even if it means you're losing games in the meantime. Conservative equivalents of Obama Lama Ding Dong are less promoted by the media so we're hanging on to the same ol' same old and this country's conservatives ain't getting any younger... The next four to six years should begin some pushes of younger conservatives and I think Jeb will most definitely be re-entering the scene to fit that mold due to his stance on immigration and bi-lingual capabilities; just like Bush Sr has always been distanced from GW, I don't think its a coincidence Jeb is like the Emilio Estevez of the Sheen family; they keep their distance so he can do his own thing due to an opinion rubbing off on him. Watch GW's favorability ratings sky rocket as he caters to both sides on the way out -- Clinton style (minus the clemency for psychopaths); it'll leave Dems second guessing whoever is voted into office (they don't look past this week's news anyhow) and leave everyone itching for another Bush run in 012. I think Bush is libs' Hillary-equivalent -- they just don't get him, are scared of him, hate him, but know that he and family are a force in politics. The cast of characters in DC now (Bush, Sr., James Baker, B. Gates, Kissinger, etc...) have been around since the beginning of the JFK era and they know what they're doing. My prediction: a Jeb/Rice ticket in 012. We'll see....sure is murky out there for any clear leaders after loss of Allen and Santorum. After this blather, I wasnt going to post, but here it goes......

I would say that W's current approval rating of around 40 percent could be 60 or 70 percent in two years when hopefully the war has been successfully resolved and the economy continues to boom, thereby paving the way for Jeb.

Pretty big "if", there, Gerald. You can bet that the Dems are well aware of this possibility and will do everything possible to prevent that from happening.

[quote][u]Voodoo practitioner tries to jinx Bush[/u]

November 16, 2006

BOGOR, Indonesia --A renowned black magic practitioner performed a voodoo ritual Thursday to jinx President George W. Bush and his entourage while he was on a brief visit to Indonesia.
...snip

He said the jinx would send spirits to possess Secret Service personnel guarding Bush and put them in a trance, leading them into falsely thinking the president was under attack, thus eventually causing chaos in Bogor Presidential Palace, where the American leader was scheduled to meet President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Monday.[/quote]

Jeb vs. Hillary...

Why not? 4 years of Jesse Ventura would certainly be interesting.

of course, you do make 1 point Gerry.

Some in our party love to point out that you have to run a liberal in order to win and they point to some anecdotal evidence based on 1 or 2 issues and a handful of elections.

Let's change that and point out another eqully significant fact.

Couple other factors. While John McCain is now 70 years old and will be 72 in 2008, Jeb is now in his prime at 53.

Also, Jeb's wife, Columba, was born in Mexico, which would appeal to the growing Hispanic voter population in the U.S. (to the chargrin of the Party of Death).

Eagle has it right. Unfortunatly Jeb is a no go in '08. I doubt if a ticket with him as VP could make it.
Even if the war is going good by that point the Ds will take credit for it.

No more Bush's. I like GWB enough... but I think nominating another Bush would be a bad idea.

A Bush dynasty...

I think not given 41 and 43's accomplishments. I don't think Hillary's in the future either, her voice is a whine every time I hear her speak. Name recognition? Surely there's something more important to consider when we look at who is to lead this great nation. If the choice is between Jeb and Hillary I'll vote for some third party candidate. Could never vote for either.

No more Bushes! I've had enough with global elitists and country club republicans. I want a conservative/pro-middle class populist type of politician.

Are you serious? Jack Kemp is now 71 years old and will be 73 during the 2008 election and will need a 3 hour afternoon nap every day.

Reagan nearly picked him for V.P. in 1980 -- wouldn't that have changed a lot of history?

Jack was great on the issues of our day, social and fiscal. But he put everyone to sleep -forever talking about the gold standard. No red meat.

Jeb Bush IS the populist candidate. No country club Republican; why he even converted to Catholicism.

Pope John Paul II did amazing things despite his advancing age. Mother Theresa was an inspiration. Maybe we should have just ignored them due to their age.

Jack Kemp only cares about economic issues. On cultural issues like illegal immigration and reversing racial preferences, I think that he actually comes down on the liberal side. Plus, he is a boring speaker.

No.

Understand America!!! We broke away from a monarchy
and have no taste for it - really.

George W Bush won in 2000 as America made amends for
the mistake of choosing Sick Willie over a good and decent
man: President George HW Bush. Carville called the
[b]youngest carrier pilot in the Pacific[/b] a [i]"WIMP"... [/i]and the
American's chose a draft-dodging weasel over a hero.

Anyway... the next President will NOT be a Clinton or a Bush.

We don't like royalty and we absolutely don't want ruling families.
