Third look at… Jeb Bush?

posted at 12:45 pm on January 24, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

The discontent over the current GOP field of presidential contenders still shows no signs of abating, and though the filing deadlines for too many states have come and gone, that won’t stop some from hankering for what might have been. Another example comes to us today from Artur Davis at National Review. In it, he lays out a scenario which he describes as not at all implausible, wherein the GOP could still stop the train from plunging off the remains of the railroad trestle and sneak Jeb Bush in the back door.

To be sure, the Jeb scenario will need more instability in order to flourish. The likeliest path involves Gingrich’s momentum carrying him through Florida; the February races in Arizona and Michigan dividing between Romney and Gingrich; Romney rebounding in March in moderate-leaning midwestern states such as Illinois and Wisconsin; Gingrich winning easily in the Deep South on Super Tuesday and Texas in early April, with Romney proving equally strong in New York and the rest of the Atlantic coastline, while states like Ohio and Indiana fail to resolve the split.

Imagine that California’s ultimate showdown leaves Gingrich with the slightest of edges, but with Romney remaining viable and in possession of a broader geographic base, far more internal support from GOP leadership, and a substantial chunk of delegates. To stop Gingrich, Romney might have no practical choice but to offer to throw his support to Bush, whose popularity would also implode Gingrich’s slim plurality.

Well, I suppose anything is possible in theory. People have been positing pretty much the same scenario for Sarah Palin, Chris Christie and Paul Ryan since well before Christmas. But even though Jeb remains a highly popular figure with a big following both in the Sunshine State and in conservative enclaves across the country, I’m not sure how profitable the idea is.

First of all, it would require the younger Bush brother to actually agree to the plan. But he’s been making it clear since very early last year that he’s not interested, at least not right now. (Bush will be 63 years old in 2016, in the event Obama wins a second term, and even at 67 he wouldn’t be out of the question in 2020.) He seems more focused on private sector work at the moment, as well as working on education reform.

Also, it may still be too soon. While conditions have definitely been changing, there is still a bit of a hangover in some quarters regarding his last name. It’s worth remembering that Barack Obama actually ran against George W. Bush in 2008 far more so than John McCain, and it turned out to be a winning formula. (For that matter, Obama is still running against Bush today… a stunning plan considering their policies on a number of issues are virtually identical.) Others have continued to express some hesitation over the idea of legacy dynasties, with a series of Bush and Clinton surnames filling up the roster for decades on end.

And finally, while it’s not outside the realm of possibility, an open convention is still not all that likely, no matter how optimistic Davis is being. The primary waters are certainly very muddy at the moment, but we’re only three states and a handful of delegates into the process. Things really should begin to congeal by some time in February as money begins to run dry and the field narrows further. For now, we should file this one under the wishful thinking category.

It really matter little if we elect Newt, Rombama, Bush number 3 or Sanatarium. They are all big government statist republicans.

We will get an increase in the size of government.
They, when in power, will push to increase the debt limit.
They won’t abolish any agencies, although they might create them.

Just look what that jack-ass Sanatarium said last night about Cuba. He will talk with Cuba once Castro dies, and bring a boat load of cash. A boat load of cash? Cash that comes from the US taxpayer and/or the banks of China that the US taxpayer has to pay back.

Sorry necons…but your time, just like big government liberals, are coming to a close.

I rather we rally around Santourum, warts and all, if we don’t want Mitt or Newt.

neuquenguy on January 24, 2012 at 12:55 PM

As much as Obama can’t wait to run against Newt, I guarantee he’d give Newt a pass if he could have an opportunity to actually run against a Bush, given how successful he was last time when he only pretended to run against one.

Red Cloud on January 24, 2012 at 12:56 PM

GhoulAid on January 24, 2012 at 12:56 PM

Running another Bush. What geniuses you guys are. Everybody just LOVES another Bush and he will definitely be the next POTUS.

Is the Republican Party really a dynasty for one family or is it now a place for the loudest, ugliest pigs in the country to hoot and holler? Either way, its becoming too embarrassing to want to stay in.

Jailbreak on January 24, 2012 at 12:56 PM

Vote for who you want.

As for me, I won’t vote for another Bush simply because of the last name. No “dynasty” for me.

0bama & company have been campaigning (successfully) against Bush for the past 5 years or so.

We don’t need to give him an actual candidate to run against. Let him run against ghosts. And Newt or Romney or whoever.

Jeb Bush! LOL Please stop the silliness.

Problem 1: He has the most appallingly bad views on immigration of any Republican I know.

Problem 2: He is the brother of GWB.

No, this is just another way of saying “we within the GOP ‘brain trust’ hate Gingrich and can’t fathom him as our nominee even if he wins fair and square”.

Get over yourselves. If Newt wins the required number of delegates for the nomination then you congratulate him, shut your yapper, and forget about such nonsense as a brokered convention.

Reggie1971 on January 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Makes no sense to me. Why Jeb Bush? Aside from being a successful governor of a medium-sized state, what, exactly, has this shining political light accomplished that would entitle him to Deus ex Machina status within the Republican Party?

Well, Bush does speak both English and Spanish, so there’s that, I guess. I took three years of high school Latin. Does that count?

btw, loved the way Jeb Bush dodged the bullet on that Romney endorsement. A real stand-up guy, that one.

troyriser_gopftw on January 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Think again, people. China has already given approval to the plan. The convention will be deadlocked and he will be nominated. Nothing is left to chance on either side.

brotherjohn on January 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

The answer is still NO.

Fletch54 on January 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

the latest ploy from the big gov’t wing of the GOP: eat your Romney peas, or we’ll shove some jeb down yer throats.

yeah, that’ll work

james23 on January 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Whenever I hear someone suggest Jeb Bush, I have to wonder how out of touch that person must be to think he’d have a chance in heck of winning the general.

McDuck on January 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Here’s an idea: How about we let them go through the primary and win as many delegates as they can. Then, they can go to the delegation with their delegates in hand and the convention proceeds as it is SUPPOSED to, because it is structured to deal with this.

If the establishment doesn’t like it they can go frak off.

Darksean on January 24, 2012 at 1:01 PM

Romney is going to win FL on Tuesday, so all of this is moot.

ToddPA on January 24, 2012 at 1:02 PM

I like Jeb. But no. Absolutely not. It would be political suicide for him. If we’re going to throw someone else in the mix, make it someone Obama is not expecting. Anyone jumping in this late has to be so unexpected — and so threatening to Obama — that the earth shifts as a result of the quake. I don’t know who that is, but that’s the kind of candidate it has to be.

Rational Thought on January 24, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Ryan or jindal announces, Palin endorses, game over.

cpaulus on January 24, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Oh, stop it. It’s the mark of a limited intelligence that a columnist things that their special candidate is not running would be instantly acceptable to Republicans who have already voted for someone else.

That’s even dumber than the mentality that pervaded most of last year: that the guy/gal who hasn’t declared yet is the one we’ve been waiting for. At least those people, you know, still had the primary in front of them.

To stop Gingrich, Romney might have no practical choice but to offer to throw his support to Bush, whose popularity would also implode Gingrich’s slim plurality.

Why on Earth would Mitt Romney want to “stop Gingrich?” Certain Romney soldiers who have faithfully attacked all 8 Not Romneys as they surged may be under the impression that Romney himself is opposed to someone like Gingrich on some kind of principle, but be assured that’s a delusion.

Romney wants to be President. If he’s not going to be President, he doesn’t care who is. If you’re thinking of some kind of VP deal, why wouldn’t he agree to be Newt’s VP? That would still the raging waters of Ann Coulter’s heart and seem to be a lot less risky than having a Bush-Romney ticket that would cause something like half the GOP to stay home.

We’re going to have to play with the cards we’ve been dealt.

Part of the problem with the country is the stupid “Republican Establishment”. The country club “lets do what the New York Times, Washington Post and MSM like” approach to the country has been an unmitigated disaster.

Barry has a plan (or maybe his boss does) … the Republican plan always seems to be to get elected and re-elected.

We need someone to help us save the country, not someone to look pretty in the big chair.

Your Mamma loves me on January 24, 2012 at 1:05 PM

I’m open to a third choice (fourth if you count Santorum)*

That being said, I don’t see the scenerio where the nation goes from GHW Bush (12 years counting his VP tenure), to Clinton (eight years), to GW Bush (eight years), to Obama (four years), to Jeb Bush….

At the end of the first Jeb Bush term that would put one family in the White House for 16 years out of 28. Though I love the irony of each successive Democrat president getting their very own Bush to blame for the world’s problems.

*the GOP only has three candidates right now. Ron Paul is the most unelectable candidate of all. He’s gunning for enough delegates to have some say in the GOP platform. Which, given his idiotic ideas about national security, I hope he fails.

His dad did the biggest gov. deal at the time it was done.

The “persons with disibility act”,, that thing poured 10 trillion tons of concrete all over America in every city, town, county.

Then cause $ 100′s of trillions of dollars in cost in construction cost of buildings ect.

Little boy Bush must go down in History with this beside his name.

wearyman on January 24, 2012 at 1:07 PM

I disagree with this. The primary process is where candidates get vetted, build their grassroots organization and name recognition, and raise money. In a brokered convention scenario, you nominate a candidate who has done none of those things 90 days before the election, and expect that candidate to play “catch up.” That’s an extremely risky plan.

I only see a “brokered convention” as a fail-safe measure in the event Newt were to implode during the primaries and be rendered manifestly unelectable. Under that scenario, Jeb or another brokered candidate would accept the nomination and essentially run a stoploss campaign designed mainly to limit Obama’s margin of victory to prevent massive House and Senate losses. That’s a nightmare scenario that we will hopefully never have to face.

Jeb Bush throws people in jail for practicing capitalism.

Florida has this asinine “no gouging” law which gives people the warm fuzzies, but the basic result of which is to deny people the ability to purchase gas-powered generators after a hurricane at a price they are willing and able to afford.
So, a guy from Georgia bought up a bunch of generators and trucked them down to Florida after a hurricane, threw open the doors, and said $2,000 each (when they cost him $1,000 each). The people of Florida would rather there be no generators at all than that someone offers them for sale at twice the price. They threw the guy in jail.

cavalier973 on January 24, 2012 at 1:13 PM
