Bush family hopes to 'gift' America another president?
If this report
from The Washington Post
doesn't put an exclamation point on the GOP's 2016 problems, I don't know what will:
Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider [former Florida Gov. Jeb] Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.
says its report is based on "interviews with 30 senior Republicans" and concludes that "many if not most" of Mitt Romney's biggest financial backers are encouraging Bush to run. And while some Republicans might be smart enough to realize that Bush III would be a spectacular fail by the GOP ...
“The ‘Bush fatigue’ question is always there,” said former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour (R). “If his name was Jeb Brown instead of Jeb Bush, he’d be the front-runner.”
... don't forget the guys who want Jeb to run now are the same clowns who just a few weeks ago were begging Mitt Romney
to run again. If Bush doesn't run, I wonder to whom they will turn next. Perhaps John McCain will be available?
