If Liberals Don’t Wake Up, We’re Going to Have Another Bush in the White House

jeb-1Even before the 2012 elections had occurred, talk of the 2016 presidential election was already a fairly hot topic.  When it comes to the field of GOP candidates for 2016 I have a feeling we’re going to have another large grouping like we saw for 2012.

The bigger names that have been floated around so far are Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.  But none of those names really strike fear within me.  Out of all of those names, Christie is really the only one that would stand a chance in a national election.  But after the bridge scandal, he’s seen a massive drop off in popularity nationally.

But there’s one name that’s quickly gaining momentum for 2016, and judging by his recent actions it seems as if he’s seriously considering a run.  I’m of course speaking about Jeb Bush.  And while I still don’t think he would stand a chance going up against Hillary Clinton, I also don’t think liberals should dismiss him just because of his last name.

Sure, the name Bush is not exactly a popular name politically with anyone outside of the most diehard Republicans, but that doesn’t mean he should be dismissed.  Considering we’ve already seen 12 years of Bush “leadership” in the White House, I think anyone who dismisses Jeb’s chances are fooling themselves.

And I’ve seen quite a few liberals do just that.

But I’m also seeing far too much apathy from liberals lately.  It’s the same apathy that’s going to give the Senate back to Republicans this November.  It’s the same apathy that gave Republicans the House in 2010.

Liberals have got to wake up and get ticked off, starting now.  Not next year, not in 2016 – now.  

While George W. Bush did a lot of damage to the Bush family name, Jeb Bush is actually a much better candidate than his brother. In fact, it’s my belief that Jeb was really the one that wanted to run for president but somehow George W. Bush slid into that position instead.

Now it seems Jeb is starting to gear up for 2016.

If liberals don’t get motivated, get energized, wake up and vote this year – in 2016, Jeb Bush might stand a real chance at being the third Bush we call president.

And I don’t know about all of you, but after 8 years of George W. Bush, I damn sure don’t want another Bush in the White House – ever.
