We want Bush!…The Clinton Team looks for Another Bush vs Clinton contest…..

The Hillary Clinton 2016 Presidential Campaign people agree with the Republican Establishment …..

(So do I)

Jeb Bush for President…..

The Clinton’s think they can go 2 and 0!.*…..

There is an obvious subtext to the panicked effort to purge the GOP of Donald Trump: to allow the party’s true hero to emerge to vanquish Hillary Clinton and restore peace and justice throughout the land. To most GOP elites, of course, the savior is Jeb Bush, complete with the Clark Kent glasses and aw-shucks good guy demeanor. The Chamber of Commerce crowd is so convinced that Jeb is the man that it (so far) has placed a more than $100 million bet on that proposition.

There’s just one problem—the Clintons want Jeb Bush to be the GOP nominee, too.

It was Trump himself who picked up on this fact when Hillary Clinton singled out Bush for criticism over his remark that “I’m not sure we need a half a billion dollars for women’s health issues.” Bush later said he “misspoke.” (This is supposed to be the safe, gaffe-free candidate, right?) By going after Jeb directly, and far from the first time, the Clintons want to “elevate” him, Trump charged, because they know they can beat him.

Here’s something you don’t hear, well, ever, in Washington: Donald Trump is right.

Regardless of whether Clinton survives her primary battle with an ever growing list of potential foes—that before long may include Joe Biden, blast-from-the-past Al Gore and heck, at this rate, maybe even Michael Dukakis—Republicans ought to think hard about the reasons why Bush might be the easiest of the serious GOP contenders for the Clintons to beat. And it’s not just because they’ve done it before.




Bill Clinton and George HW Bush are the Best of friends these days….

Back in the day….Clinton, Bush and Perot debate….Clinton won the job….

  1. “There are like 10 things I would change in the Constitution with a magic wand.”

    Jeb Bush when asked about ending birthright citizenship.

    Gee whatever happened to that conservative reverence for the Constitution?

    Guess that goes out the window when it comes to appealing to the old white xenophobes out there. Even among so called “moderate” Republicans.

    Oh but he has a Mexican wife, so that’ll make it all better.

  2. I thought so too, but thats an odd response to the question if he indeed thinks it should not be repealed.

    Jindal also said yesterday in absolute terms yesterday that birthright citizenship should end.

  3. Bush made some weird remarks the other day bewailing the fact that he is catching flack because he gets most of his foreign policy advice from those who advised his brother.

    Well, Duh?

  4. Here is another Article why the Clintons want Jeb Bush to be the GOP Nominee…AND finally after nearly 6 months of wrangling james finally agrees with me. How odd. I said from the very early stages of the 2016 Presidential Race “Anything bu Jeb Bush”

    Keith, jack, Zreebs, james…EVERYONE were throwing punches at me claiming Jeb Bush would be the strongest. Thus far Jeb Bush is unable to distingish himself his brother & his bad policies. Donald Trump will fade away just like Herman Cain did in late 2007 and then it becomes again a Bush/Walker Race with Rubio as 2nd Tier running behind both. Should Walker win Iowa Jeb is in deep Trouble. From all the data that’s available Walker is doing very well in New Hampshire & South Carolina. The Race between Walker and Bush will become similar to the 2008 Dem. Primary between Clinton and Obama. 1 & 1 Walker CAN BEAT Jeb.


  5. i find it hard to believe that I ever said Jeb would be the strongest Republican before !i even knew which Republicans would be in the race. I know I said that Bush doesn’t match up well against Hillary because the presidencies of Bill And HWB/GWB would be compared, and Clinton comes out the easy winner there. And while I might have considered Bush the slight favorite, I have been saying – and I still say- that the GOP field is wide open. Lots of people could win it. So ease up on the false accusation of throwing punches. And by the way, while Bush has fallen, so has Walker, but either can still win.

  6. I never said Bush would be the strongest candidate.

    About two years ago we were having a speculative discussion as to who would be the Republican nominee in 2016.I opined that Bush might be the “last man standing.”

    About three months ago , as James was incessantly declaring the nomination basically in the bag for Jeb and reminding me if that two year old statement, I revised it based on changing events to reflect my present feeling,

    That Bush ,while still having a chance at the nomination, no longer ranks as the favorite.

    I might add that Walker has been steadily dropping in polling and has not found his rhythm on the campaign trial in my view.Way too early to count him out,but,so far?


    1. Jeb Bush REMAINS the #2 person in the polling average’s….

      Just about EVERYBODY is of the opinion that Donald Trump IS gonna flame out….

      Walker IS flaming out ALREADY …..

      Jeb Bush seems to be a worst campaigner than Hillary…

      So I’m STILL calling the nomination for him…
      But NOT nearly so strongly…
      I believe the bookies also have it for him….

  7. Hard to believe, in current world conditions (and no matter how and how much you think the U.S. should respond), that Scott Walker can present a credible candidacy.

    Unlike other “normalcy” Republican candidates, such as Sen. Harding, Sec. Hoover and Gen. Eisenhower, Gov. Walker has no experience in either the Congress, the military or overseas relief.

    Being tough on public employees in Wisconsin is of no relevance in dealing with ayatollahs, caliphs, sheikhs, commissars, caudillos and the European Union.

    Even Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan had more knowledge and experience.

    Gov. Geo. W. Bush had just as little experience (apart from being with his spymaster/diplomat father), but George III was elected (with fewer votes than his far-more-experienced opponent) in what seemed like far less turbulent times.

  8. james,

    You surely must realize that most of Trumps Support is coming from Scott Walker…so if Trump flames out as expected most of his Supporters will go to Walker again.

    If Walker wins Iowa I’m not sure Jeb Bush can stop the Walker freight Train. Walker ain’t Santorum who had no money after he won Iowa.

  9. Yes – How is Walker going to deal with the caudillos – although I disagree with DSD that Trump has “more experience and experience”.

    With regard to Daniel’s comment, some of Trump’s support can go to Walker, but I’m not sure that someone like Carson might get even more of that vote.

  10. As I said on the other thread, Cruz is much more likely to inherit any potential Trump slide in support than Walker. But, I personally think that Hillary can handle the caudillos much more effectively than any of the other candidates.

  11. I agree with Keith.

    Cruz is perfectly positioned to inherit Trumps support.

    There is no basis for Daniels statement that Trumps supported “coming from Walker.”

    Walker has in the past week or so made some moves to appeal to Trump type supprters but continues to not impress.

  12. Walker has always been a blank slate in this campaign.
    Even when he was polling better most Republicans didnt know much about him.

    If Trump tanks (I no longer say when) he might get some of that support, but there’s nothing to suggest it will.
