President Jeb Bush??
*darth vader* Noooooooooo
Yah, bad news...
Saw this on Countdown tonight.
If we vote another Bush president, we deserve what's coming.
link's not working for me.
W/how much W has pee'd in the pool, do you really think his bro has a snowball's chance anytime soon?
Everyone sing along....
"O Canada, our home and native land!"
¡Viva la Floriduh!
i've always thought that jeb was smarter than george. if he did want to run, he'd be in a weird place that he'd either have to embrace his brother's job (political suicide) or distance himself (bush familial suicide).
i'd rather see chelsea clinton run against either one of the twins. a proper debate would be most enlightening.
I am sure Jeb will run in the future, just not in 2008. He would need time to let the American people warm up to the idea of another Bush administration. 2012 or 2016 maybe.
If you want to see who I think the next Bush presidency will belong to, it is George P. Bush, Jeb's son. I find this inevitable just like another Clinton presidency. It is really two bad US politics will be controlled by only two families for the forseeable future. I am not too old but for as long as I can remember it has been only Bush/Clinton Administrations.
Jeb is going to have his hands full for a while. I don't know how long his gubernatorial term has remaining, but until then he will have to deal with:
(a) the state increasingly catching on fire
(b) the state getting more and more windy and full of too much water
(c) the state's economic and political fallout of (a) and (b)
(d) the state being Florida
(e) immigration policy focus
I have to wonder whether Florida's general propensity for wierdness and odd religious fervor is related to the fact that the weather gets more apocalyptic each year. I expect one of the horseman to be doing the local forecasts.
Also, frankly, I don't want a President named Jeb. Even more so if it is short for Jebidiah.
Unfortunately, it's not just Americans (primarily not in fact) that suffer from the shoddy products of their misappropriated democracy.
True, but I simply refuse to beleive that Americans could be stupid enough to do it again...
Even my parents hate Bush at this point!
Remember, it doesn't matter how bad the Shrub is if he can make the Democratic nominee look worse.
In that case, it becomes a case of
"anybody but Bush... except that guy."
IIRC Jeb is out next year.
I think this country is sour on two bad Bush presidencies. It will be a while before another Bush is considered.
And for the person who said this country is controlled by the Clintons and the Bushes - Clinton is what they call 'new money'. Bush is what they call 'a legacy'. Out here we call them 'trustafarians'.
New money doesn't get control of the country. Old money keeps that club pretty exclusive. Maybe in another 50 or 100 years if the Clinton family pursues politics extensively.
Now the Kennedys are a different story...
If Jeb turns the party down, there's always Neil.
and after that, there's a whole 'nother generation of bushes just champing at the bit.
Girl wrestling on the White House lawn -- I could get used to that!
you mean since like, roughly, 1988?
i too doubt that jeb will run in 08. wouldn't be surprised to see a bush in the whitehouse in the near future, though.
I'll pick door number two, Bob.
I'm sure that was a plan, somewhere down the road. Notice who's calling for it. But I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon, and Jeb has known that for awhile.

Never underestimate American stupidity.
Hey, leave Stan out of this. He was funny on purpose.
