The Big Yawn: Jeb Bush exploring possible 2016 run for presidency
That’s how excited I am at a possible Jeb Bush candidacy. And I’m pretty sure the conservative base of the Republican Party is equally underwhelmed with the idea of another squish GOPer has the itch to give it a go.
Yahoo reports Jeb Bush answered the biggest question looming over the Republican Party’s next campaign for the White House on Tuesday, all but declaring his candidacy for president more than a year before the first primaries.
Bush, the son and brother of Republican presidents, is the first potential candidate to step this far into the 2016 contest, and his early announcement could deeply affect the race for the GOP nomination.
He is the early favorite of the GOP’s establishment wing, and his move puts immediate pressure on other establishment-minded GOP contenders to start actively competing with him for donors, campaign staff and national attention.
The 61-year old former two-term governor of Florida declared on Facebook he would “actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States.”
My #1 choice for the GOP nod is Scott Walker. Jeb is a waste of time and a movie we’ve seen before.
