WTF? ???.... Jeb: 'I hope I run. I want to. But I haven't made the final decision yet'

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to Face the Nation's Bob Schieffer. minutes ago.

"I hope I run"??????

Sounds as if he is waiting to surprise himself.
and hasn't he already declared twice that he IS running?

1. I'd understand it if Rand Paul said that.

I'd just figure he was waiting for the voices in his head to tell him what to do.

11. I put it together myself.

I stole the hair from somewhere & added the text with Photoshop. It's posted in my Photobucket account. You can steal it if you want. Just right-click on it & get the url.

2. I think things are not rolling out the way he thought they would.

 

I have a feeling that some of the declared candidates honestly thought the nomination would be an uncontested cakewalk, with cheers and flowers and so on.

4. He would be wise not to run.

Looks like he won't get the nomination, meaning his family would be totally humiliated if he were to announce. Thanks dimson!

6. I've got to hide my dirty money before you people go snooping on me

What bank does Grayson hide his money in, they're discreet, right?

He's also got to try to distance himself from the Common Core dollars he's made pushing that shit on people who hate it.

7. Why'd he release all his emails?

I thought I heard him say he was running, and sticking up for his family but not actually totally agreeing with them....

He's in a bind with that Iraq War.

18. Indeed. Who does he think he's fooling.

He doesn't have enough self awareness to get out before he's embarrassed. Lord knows he'd have the money to go the distance, but I still think America is done with the bush people.

15. Doesn't surprise me at all. He's a practical business type who

probably doesn't give a shit about policies or ideas. This period is probably a time he has set aside to do a decision analysis. He won't run unless he knows he can win. Kind of like dingbat Romney this last time - he looked at it analytically
Then, went into wrestling.

him.

21. Political games

Of course Jeb! is running for president. But until he formally announces, he can basically raise unlimited funds for his campaign and coordinate all he wants with whatever Super PACs and big money boys are working with him. He's not subject to election laws until he actually starts running.

Of course, that might be a topic of discussion on the Sunday talk shows, but for some reason they're awfully preoccupied with another election issue. Namely, that even though some candidates have voiced concerns with campaign finance reform, they're running under the system as it's constituted and not voluntarily handicapping themselves by running their campaigns under the system as they'd like to see it. This puzzles the political cognoscenti in the country no end! It's like a visiting team coming into Yankee Stadium and not insisting that the pathetically close right field fence be moved back when they bat.

26. Code for:

"I need More Time To Coordinate With My Super Pacs"....

After he officially announces...they must engage in a "legal separation".

At least I think that might be the main contributing factor.....

27. Not official until he officially says it, I guess.

 

Meantime he can continue to coordinate with his Super PAC, and hoover up all available monies. Thank you FEC!

29. Legal issues/ He is currently playing with the law, claiming he has not made his decision so that he

can raise a ton of money without regulations.

Then, he will announce.

Too much heat over Iraq and Afghanistan, torture advocate..for some families that would
be enough not to try running for POTUS.
