Jeb Bush: "I'd Consider the Vice Presidency"-- if Romney Were to Ask Him
Edited on Sat Apr-21-12 05:20 PM by KoKo
(I'll Betchya You Would Jeb! Probably that was the "PLAN" all along. Why else would the Repugs have rallied around such a boring, flip flopping Candidate...like Mitt Romney. Where's the excitement with that one...unless BUSH III comes in. That will RALLY EVERYONE and the Cables and Networks will have a field day with all the coverage. If that's the plan...it will be interesting to see if and how it works out. Perhaps it's just the Bush Family's "Wishful Thinking"...but, it just makes so much SENSE, it's hard to discount it.) :shrug:

Jeb Bush: I'd Consider Vice Presidency

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says he'd consider running as vice president with Mitt Romney, but doubts he'll ever be asked.

Bush tells the conservative website Newsmax that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is "probably the best" choice to share the ticket with Romney, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. Bush said he hopes the freshman senator is offered the No. 2 slot and accepts it.

Rubio has said repeatedly that he isn't interested in leaving the Senate.

Bush said he'd consider running if Romney were to ask him. But the former governor added that he's not sure running for vice president is the right thing for him and said he's doubtful he'd even receive the call.

1. I bet that's been the plan too
He's "unofficially" floating the idea out there.

"...he's not sure running for v.p. is the right thing for him and...doubtful he'd even receive the call. Sort of like "fishing for compliments" only in a BIG way.

He's fishing and floating at the same time.

I wondered myself if this would happen.

sorry, when I hear of any Bush potentially being in the White House ever again, I get a tad nauseous... I hope I'm not spewing for too long. That would make me move far far away!

3. Two candidates raised as Mormons on the same ticket would HAVE to turn off the neo theos, wouldn't
it?

From a Republican perspective, Jeb Bush would probably be the ideal VP candidate.

A member of the Bush crime family, yet not Dummya Bush. Married to a Mexican. Brother of a neo theo, and himself a convert to pro-choice Catholicism. Experience as a Governor of a conservative state.


Pick Rubio, pick Rubio!

Rubio: George W. Bush Did a Fantastic Job as President
Source: CNN / Raw Story

Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday refused to explain how a potential Romney administration would be different from George W. Bushs administration, but insisted that the last Republican president did a fantastic job and his brother, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), would be a fantastic vice president.

I havent gone through the comparison, Rubio told CNNs Candy Crowley. I think that presidents serve in different times with different challenges. And so I think that George W. Bush, in my opinion, did a fantastic job as president over eight years, facing a set of circumstances during those eight years that are different from the circumstances that a President Romney would face.

Last week, Jeb Bush told Newsmax that he would consider a vice presidential nomination, but suggested Rubio was probably the best choice.

Well, thats very nice of Jeb, Rubio said on Sunday. I hope hell say yes if future President Romney asks him, adding that the former Florida governor would be a fantastic vice president.

4. President Romney would then need a full-time staff member
(perhaps one of his many strapping sons) constantly reminding him to stay out of small planes.

6. Has anyone thought that the "Clan of the Romney Boys" rivals the Bush Boys?
:scared:

I have no doubt there's "some plan" there in the making. We've seen the pattern and how could we NOT BE SUSPECT of the intentions?

It sure is looking like some "same old...same old..shuffling cards" going on, here.

But, who knows ...something could intervene...surprises...whatever. If the people are finally WAKING UP...there could be something NEW...or not.
