George W. Bush’s counsel to Jeb on 2016 presidential run: ‘Run!’

by George Bennett | April 25th, 2013

Former President George W. Bush, in an ABC News interview, says his younger brother Jeb Bush would be a “marvelous” candidate if the former Florida governor decides to run for president in 2016.

“He would be a marvelous candidate if he chooses to do so. He doesn’t need my counsel because he knows what it is, which is ‘Run!’ ” Bush told Diane Sawyer. “But whether he does or not, it’s a very personal decision.”

The former president said the possibility of a Jeb Bush-Hillary Clinton contest in 2016 will make for “a fantastic photo here” at today’s opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the campus of Southern Methodist University near Dallas. Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are expected to be on hand, along with former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama.

    With the baggage of his brother still fresh in the mind of the American voters. The chance of Jeb running would be a welcome to the Democratic Party.

    The truly amazing part is the
    “Re-Branded” G.O.P. is still a mystery to the rest of the taxpayers. Women’s right to birth control and abortions is still the subject in most state G.O.P. legislatures. Voters rights is another point of contention for some. The wounds of unfunded war brought about with false and doctored Intel. is a sticking point from the years of W. Bush and his band of marry men.

    The sticking point is not Mr. Bush. It is the lack of concern for taxpayers from the leaders of the G.O.P.. As long as the G.O.P. puts corporations concerns above the average Joe. They should expect to see defeat in the elections.

    The 4th. on Nov. 2014 will be another wake up call for the leaders of the G.O.P. and even then they will question the thoughts of the voters as to what it is they are doing wrong.

    Please run we need another reason not to vote for you or the GOP. You wouldn’t win in this state anyway the tide has turned we are Democratic now. As diversity continues they think different and are more educated than the standard GOP voters anymore. Limiting our voting change a lot with primary and presidential election.

    Goes to show, YOU CAN`T FIX STUPID, Im sure Jeb knows he doesn`t have a chance in the world of a win. Voters made that clear in the last election, THE RETHUGLICANS are toast, and so are the IDIOTS and the teabagger followers.

    NO article or story on Democrat Senator Harry Reid confering with Boehner on getting their legislative staff EXEMPT from Obamacare!

    yep, it’s just us peons, the peasants of the USA, who will get a diluted healthcare system, with the power elites and their staff EXEMPT from Obamacare. And WE, the peasants, pay for their healthcare.

    Read it yourselves, cuz the Post won’t report it:
    From Politico:

    What a kick in the face to Americans!

    And the Palm Beach Post Times FAILS to run an article on this matter.

    The PB Post also wants us to subscribe to their paper, but FAIL to have balanced, INFORMED articles for its reading public be they democrat or republican or independent.


    DON’T LET THE ELITES: elected officials and the uber wealthy make a further demarcation between the masses (we, the peons, the peasants) and themselves!

    Do you think the FAA cut the staff at the Washington DC airports to slow air traffic for the traveling elected officials during this sequester?
    Oh, NO! just the peasants’ airports around the nation. Let them suffer.

    And besides the elected elites of both parties fly in military jets at their disposal that we, the peasants, pay for.

    The only good things is that these failed newspaper editors, reporters will be stuck at airports with the rest of the peasants and their healthcare will be the same as ours.

    The failure of the media to inform is a slap in the face to all Americans.
