Yep. It looks like the Republican establishment is really going to work over-time to push Bush for 2016. Just what we need. Another faux conservative aka RINO, who has wouldn’t fire up the base and turn out votes in the next presidential election. I don’t know what the hell the GOP establishment’s love affair with the Bushies are. H.W. Bush was a one term failure, George W. Bush had approval ratings in the 20%s when he left office, and his name was so toxic he didn’t even give a live speech at either the 2008 or 2012 conventions.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush met Monday with a group of his former staffers at the J. W. Marriott hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, just steps from the White House. Bush, a potential 2016 presidential contender, spent an hour in the hotel’s Cannon room, reminiscing and entertaining questions about his political future.
In an interview with NRO, Bush did not rule out a presidential run. “I am here to catch up with folks and promote education reform,” he said, smiling.
When asked again whether he will issue a Sherman-type statement about his future, Bush remained coy. “We have an alumni group that I like keeping in touch with,” he said. “I’m here to focus on educational reform, and that’s what I’m going to tell people.”
