Influential Republicans working to draft Jeb Bush into 2016 presidential race

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy.

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 Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

Bush’s advisers insist that he is not actively exploring a candidacy and will not make a decision until at least the end of this year. But over the past few weeks, Bush has traveled the country delivering policy speeches, campaigning for Republicans ahead of the fall midterm elections, honing messages on income inequality and foreign policy, and cultivating ties with wealthy benefactors — all signals that he is considering a run.

Many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet, according to interviews with 30 senior Republicans. One bundler estimated that the “vast majority” of Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush in a competitive nomination fight.

“He’s the most desired candidate out there,” said another bundler, Brian Ballard, who sat on the national finance committees for Romney in 2012 and John McCain in 2008. “Everybody that I know is excited about it.”

I am an independent. If you held a gun to my head and told me to pick Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton I’d tell you to pull the trigger. If Jeb Bush is the nominee, lots of the GOP base will stay home on election day.

As far as the GOP establishment is concerned they would rather lose with Jeb Bush than win with Rand Paul, Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin. Members only need apply, and no populist riffraff reformers are welcome.

These “influential Republicans” need to spend some time rubbing elbows with the GOP hoi polloi. Jeb Bush is NOT the most desired candidate and I can prove it.

When is the last time you saw a news story sliming Jeb Bush? When is the last time SNL, TDS or any of the late-nite comics made fun of Jeb Bush? When is the last time a leftwing blog or website published a defamatory article or post about him?

The left attacks what they fear and they don’t fear Jeb Bush. If the GOP establishment forces Jeb Bush down the throats of the GOP base as the 2016 nominee, get used to hearing the phrase, “Madam President.”

"Go, Jeb!  Go!"

“Go, Jeb! Go!”

    the old guard republican party is like the gang that couldn’t shoot straight. the epitome of a circular firing squad.
    they have some young turks that are in touch with the people and the old guard does nothing but attack them instead of working with them. Too many old guard have been too long at the fair. they would rather lose a presidential election and keep their seats then work with the new guys.
    working together and learning from each other would really help the country but they can not see that.
    If things do not change soon their may be a third party growing by leaps and bounds in this country

    Exactly. And that’s what they’ll do. On the Dem side, they would prefer another empty suit tool like Obama. They’re probably not sure about liawatha, but she’s as dumb as a bag of rocks, so they probably like her as a Hillary alternative. They really hate Hillary (and Bill), but like the Repubs, they’ll pick her over a real Dem reformer/populist in a heartbeat.

    One thing on Jeb’s side is Hillary. If it’s Bush v. Clinton, at least complaints solely about a dynasty will fall on deaf ears. But the bottom line is Clinton’s are infinity more liked and trusted by the riffraff than Bushes. That is, 90’s economy vs. 00’s economy. The wild card might be how tied Hillary will be to Obama (both foreign policy and obamacare). But I’d give heavy odds to Hillary in that match up just the same.

      I do hafta laugh at this a bit, though. There’s some truth to the claim that “old people” don’t use the internet and are a little afraid of it. My definition of “old people”, btw, are the 60-70 yo idiots born one or two decades after me!!!!!!!!!

      • leslie says:

        And my definition of “old people” are 10-20 years older than that! 😉

        • 49erDweet says:

          🙂 point taken. But it’s frustrating being involved in a Neighborhood Watch where I’m the only “senior” with enough savvy to be online. My neighbors think my “tablet” is from Woolworths, not Samsung.

          • elliesmom says:

            Sorry. Those of us in our 60’s and older invented the internet and laid the groundwork for all of the toys you younguns like to play with. I don’t have a single friend in my age group who isn’t online, into social networking, and doesn’t carry “connective devices” with them everywhere they go. You must live in a very backyard neighborhood. Our high school sent some “ambassadors” to the senior center to help the seniors learn how to use computers, and the poor kids got laughed out of the place.

          • 49erDweet says:

            My 60 yo neighbors have I-phones and don’t know how to use them. They think “wi-fi” is part of their 3G service and can only be used to communicate with another I-phone. Since I have an Android they obviously have no way to reach me other than through a cell number. True.

    WOW it is not only harry reid but now nancy pelosi thinks the American people are DUMB

    I don’t get it either. The faces of the Dem Party – Reid, Pelosi, HRC, DWS, plus all the latest corrupt aholes collared. I want fresh and new ideas too. That was Clinton in ’92, love him or hate him, he wasn’t as bad as Obama and better than Carter. He had intellectual curiosity too, Obama just phones it in (literally). But it doesn’t want me to want Hillary. She had her time to shine and blew it. Though the anti-Hillary vote might work for the GOP.

    So much talent on the right, just look to the lady Governors (including Sarah) and the men too. All have fought pretty tough battles. Anyone of them could beat Hillary. I’m not a Jeb fan, but I’d seriously look at his Florida Gov record before I pull the lever ….. or trigger 😀

    Gotta get through 2014 first. Gotta get that Senate back and keep the House. No, not to impeach BO, to slow him down.

      Steady. Eye on the prize. Forget the “squirrels”. Not very filling.

    • swanspirit says:

      Absolutely !!! although I do think it is a bit early to write off Christie …. the “bridge ” will be in the rear view mirror quite a long way off by then ; but as you say, first elections first !! Let’s hamstring Obama first !

    If Hillary runs then I think Jeb Bush will be nominated. The only thing the Republicans worry about is people wanting new blood in the Presidency but if Hillary is the Dem nominee then people have no choice by an establishment political dynasty candidate.

    What’s wrong with the phrase “Madam President”?
