WILL IT (OR ANY DOLLAR AMOUNT) BE ENOUGH?
|| By FITSNEWS || We lost interest over the speculations surrounding former Florida governor Jeb Bush‘s presidential announcement a few weeks ago … you know, when he accidentally announced his candidacy.
But there’s growing speculation that Bush will “officially” (i.e. non-accidentally) announce his candidacy next week – and along with it, reveal a $100 million war chest in support of his White House aspirations.
“Is $100 million enough to convince conservative Republican primary voters that you’re not a big government crony capitalist pig?” one South Carolina GOP strategist asked FITS.
Whoa … good question.
“Whether it’s (his) undying support for federal government educational indoctrination of our youth, unwavering support for violating every American’s fourth amendment rights, amnesty for illegal immigrants who have violated this nation’s laws, support for warrantless search and seizure, higher taxes or any number of ridiculous policy positions, Jeb Bush simply isn’t what we need,” the strategist added.
We’re not “big on Bush” either (double entendre alert), although we have given him praise in those instances where he’s evidenced a longstanding commitment to sound, pro-free market policy – or made the right call on a current issue.
Unfortunately such instances are too far and few between for him to warrant serious consideration from pro-freedom, pro-free market voters …
UPDATE: Looks like our “speculators” were correct. Bush will be announcing his candidacy on Monday, June 15. No word yet on what sort of financial fireworks will accompany his big entrance.
Prediction – 2016 Election is The Legacy Election. It’s gonna be Jeb v Hillary – the pea and the pod. With $100 million to start, let’s see who Jebulan goes after first. He’ll be gentle on Marco, because Marco’s the VP Candidate. Independents will sit this one out, mainly, and the right wing of the GOP and the left wing of the Dem parties will stay home too. So come on boys and girls, let’s get your moderate on – because it will be moderates who jazz this election.
That would mean no new tax codes, more swarming fat-paid, fat-assed g’ment, more g’ment spying, more of everything your children are going to have to revolt against. … It matters not which of those two wins (if one could call that a win.)
You’re spot on there. But if he does win, watch for Flip and GT to say he’s a “true” conservative, and the “greatest” President since Reagan, and fall over themselves in a new love fest.
Many moons ago, man named Bush in White House, economy tank, many storms hit Charleston and Miami. Later, another Bush, in White House. Economy tank and many storms hit New Orleans and Texas. Jeb win, me build tee pee on stilts, and see 401K go to Rain Gods in Sky.
Cute … and not too far off the mark.
Yes, He is just another one. And in my opinion it will be an easy win for Hillary if he is nominated.
‘Cause Hill’s not affiliated with a dynasty of any type, perhaps?
Oh, I actually think he beats Hillary by the skin of his teeth because he has the Mexican wife, and picks Marco for VP. Unless some other GOP egomaniac decides to run as an independent.
I agree…I may be overly optimistic, butvi see Clinton as weak on basic likeability. She’s no Slick Willie…
Not Marco- they’re from the same state. Scott Walker.
You know, you may have just explained GWB’s Katrina flyover response, too.
Remember how GHWB caught some flak for belatedly showing in SC after Hugo? Carroll Campbell said he told him he didn’t need to visit after what was then the costliest hurricane to hit the US. Wonder if that amazingly politically tone deaf response was an early sign of Carroll’s Alzheimer’s or just Bush bad judgment?
I doubt Bushes are concerned about hurricanes unless they hit Kennebunkport.
He does look cooler than Romney. Go Jeb!!! Jebulan in 2016. Jebito – el Jeffe!!!!
Well, come on kids, in Mexico,
get off your ass, it’s time to go,
Jeb’s in office, strike up the band,
Time to swim the Rio Grande.
Be the first one the Villa,
To go up north and get a Visa.
Is that supposed to be sung to the tune of “Fixin’ to Die”?
Go get ’em Jeb!!!!!!!!!!
