Jeb Bush, ultimate politician
Original post made by Lilly Roof, Los Altos Hills, on Feb 24, 2012
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Thursday that he found it ï¿½troublingï¿½ that the 2012 presidential candidates are ï¿½appealing to peopleï¿½s fears and emotionï¿½ on the campaign trail, according to reports.
ï¿½I used to be a conservative, and I watch these debates and Iï¿½m wondering, I donï¿½t think Iï¿½ve changed, but itï¿½s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to peopleï¿½s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective, and thatï¿½s kind of where we are,ï¿½ said Bush, according to Fox News.
Y'all get it? two possibilities, both on why he isn't running in 2012
- Jeb didn't want to run against a powerful incumbent in an improving economy, fearing he'd lose and running again in 2016 for the open seat, looking like Romney, running for the last 7 years.
- Jeb wants Romney to lose this year so Jeb can run for the open seat in 2016
Never trust a Bush or any establishment politician (redundant.) Rick Santorum or Ron Paul. A vote for anyone else is flat out wrong.
