Report: Jeb Bush likely to endorse Romney before Florida primary

posted at 7:45 pm on January 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Surprising. The odds of this happening, given the Bush family’s antipathy to Gingrich and Perry, couldn’t have been much higher than 98 or 99 percent.

Second look at political dynasties backing establishment candidates?

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush plans to endorse former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney before the Jan. 31 Florida primary, a Florida GOP source close to Bush told BuzzFeed Thursday.

The endorsement from Bush, who despite prodding from members of his famous family and prominent Republicans decided to sit out the 2012 contest, is the latest sign that the Republican establishment is coalescing around Romney after months publicly griping about finding another candidate…

The Florida Herald-Tribune reported yesterday that First Lady Laura Bush told a Sunshine State audience this week that her husband “and I wish he would [run for president.] We wanted him to this time.”

If there’s any significance to this scoop, that’s it — that the odds of Jeb jumping in late to shake up the race have now declined from a fraction of one percent to absolute zero. I want more details on the timing, though. It makes no sense for Bush to wait until after South Carolina to endorse Romney since Romney’s almost certainly going to win Florida regardless. He leads there in all the recent polls, one of which has him up by more than 20 points, and he’s probably the only candidate in the field who can afford the huge expense of a sustained ad campaign there. Unless Sheldon Adelson’s ready to pour millions more into Newt’s Super PAC, Mitt might be able to lose South Carolina to Newt and still bounce back to win Florida. If he’s got Jeb’s endorsement, he should roll it out a day or two before SC votes in hopes of pulling some moderates away from Huntsman and squeaking past Newt to wrap up the nomination. Having Bush stump for him there would also make for a sweet complement to the support he’s getting from DeMint’s more conservative allies, including praise — if not a formal endorsement — from DeMint himself.

Here’s Jeb with Piers Morgan back in October talking about how “consistent” Romney is, which must be the first term any human has said that ever. Beneath that,

I think it will be a joint announcement by Jeb Bush and “Amazing Marco” Rubio before the Florida primary. Rubio owes Bush as much as he owes Romney for funding assistance.

West will probably fall after the Florida primary. He is facing stiff re-election challenges and will want some help.

On the other hand, their are lots of Disney characters at DisneyWorld in Orlando who are lining up to endorse Perry.

the_nile on January 12, 2012 at 8:00 PM

This is excellent! Jeb Bush was a wonderful governor, and Mitt Romney will be an amazing president.

Jeb Bush knows that the sooner we select our nominee, the better. Jeb Bush obviously wants to put the nails in the coffins of the pathetic, embarrasing Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry campaigns. In the last few days Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry have utterly humiliated themselves even more than usual. Newt’s and Perry’s attacks on free enterprise (as a desperate way to try to hurt Romney) have disqualified them from serious consideration. (Actually, Rick Perry was disqualified the second he opened his mouth and showed us all what an incompetent buffoon he is, but that’s another story.)

We do NOT need a president who adopts the socialist Occupy Wall Street language, as Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich have done.

One thing is crystal clear now: Mitt Romney is the one to defeat Obama.

GO MITT!! I am more supportive now of Mitt than ever before. Obama is going down.

bluegill,

Dr. Tesla on January 12, 2012 at 8:02 PM

Because Romney has, almost literally, argued passionately on both sides of every issue, he also does not stand for any politics we could call “Romneyism.” He only stands for his own purported competence, evidenced, he says, by an arcane area of financial business with little discernible relationship to government.

So when we pick Romney, we will stand or fall on Romney himself, not “Romney’s ideas” (quick, name some), but Romney himself, personally.

Masih ad-Dajjal on January 12, 2012 at 8:05 PM

I have to admit…for a while I found myself in the odd position of defending Romney against over-the-top condemnations, especially hypocritical and inconsistent critiques coming from people who seriously consider Rick Perry the Second Coming of Calvin Coolidge. But as I’ve thought about Romney more over the last weeks, I’ve found myself swinging around to the Anyone-But-Romney camp. And this is one of the reasons why. Every huge RINO, moderate, establishment Dem-lite whp has been responsible for where the GOP, conservative movement and the national economy are today, is getting in line behind Mitt. Its not a deal breaker, but damn, it is pretty close in and of itself.

Sekhmet on January 12, 2012 at 8:05 PM

Like I posted earlier……

Bush won the battle for the soul of the gop and Reagan lost.

When Bush started to lead the gop in 1988 it became a “kinder, gentler” party (a/k/a Limp Handshake, self castrated, meely mouthed, wusses).

Then they rolled out Dole in 1996 for more of the same Establishment Ruling class dominance of the party. It was Dole’s turn since he was “next in line”.

Because they foisted Dole on us in 1996 and he was just a sacrificial lamb it cleared the way for……drumroll……..Bush’s oldest son in 2000.

Bush II gave us “compassionate conservatism” a/k/a BIGGER and BIGGER federal power. Control over education, “free” Prescription drugs for Seniors, goodies for all and more citizens paying NO FEDERAL TAXES.

Then the squishes ran multiple “Conservatives” in 2008 that split the vote and left us with “the next in line” John “fighter” McCain. He screwed up by picking Palin in August and they were even ahead in the polls until the huge run on the economy sent the market into a tailspin. McCain rolled over and let Obama have it. He even told us we had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency.

Now it’s 2012 and the squishes have had 24 years to be firmly in charge of power in the gop having snuffed out the “tea party” movement after the 2010 elections. So we now get the Conservative vote split again and voila……the ‘next in line’ is Mitt Romney.

Is this just to clear the deck for Jeb in 2016? Has Jeb already been promised the VEEP nomination? Is the fix in for Rubio to be the Veep as a political payback to the Bush clan?

Fortunately, the average gop voter is just as lazy as the democrat voters. And here we are again, ready to nominate a flip flopper of HISTORIC PROPORTIONS.

WOW…….Congratulations American voter.

You’ve done it again*.
