This is a Republic, not a Democracy. Let's keep it that way!

Is Jeb Bush Waiting in the Wings?

with one comment


The GOP is running out of candidates to roll out for the 2012 nomination. I suppose it is possible that one of these candidates will catch on and bring home the nomination but it seems Romney, Gingrich, Paul and Santorum are in for a long run. Santorum or Newt could drop first but I expect Newt is in and Santorum is the likely candidate to drop next. It is quite possible that 3 or 4 candidates could advance to the GOP National Convention with no clear nominee. It’s been quite some time since the convention was brokered. 1948?

Now, I expect Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney to continue to pummel each other in the press and Ron Paul will be largely ignored. It could be that neither of the establishment darlings will be appealing to enough delegates and we know the GOP leadership is not going to let Ron Paul get the nomination.  Enter Jeb Bush.

Remember, the Convention is in Tampa Bay Florida, a strong-hold of the Bush Family and ex-governor Jeb Bush. Under this scenario, the GOP will not have to expose its nominee to the attacks that each of their previous darlings have had to endure. The party could simply slip a compromise candidate out there and line up all their cronies under the “party loyalty” pressure tactic.

I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my gut that we could be staring at an Obama vs. Bush general election. Let’s hope that is not the case.

  1. Here me out: If this country is ever again stupid enough to send another member of this corrupt, hideous family to the executive mansion they’ll deserve everything that happens to them. EVERYTHING. Another Bush in the White House is the worst th8ing that could possibly happen to this once-great nation. Of course, being a commentator on the train-wreck of American politics, it’s the best thing that could possibly happen to me. Vote for Jeb in 2012. Make my day.
