Republicans are Delusional: Jeb Bush Doesn’t Stand a Chance at Becoming President

jeb-bush-georgeI remember back in November of 2013, just after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had won re-election, how he was the toast of the town. Polls showed him as the clear front-runner for the 2016 presidential ticket and even some had him ahead of Democratic heavyweight Hillary Clinton.

At that moment, it was almost a sure bet that Christie was going to be the GOP darling of 2016.


Then the bridge scandal hit and that pretty much put an end to all of that nonsense. But since that time, Republicans have desperately been looking for anyone to “take that lead” as someone they can get behind for a probable 2016 presidential bid.

Granted, there’s been the usual suspects like Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz, but none of those clowns really stands a chance. Paul has more appeal than Cruz or Huckabee, but being “better than Cruz or Huckabee” doesn’t really say a whole lot. Then you have the other probable candidates that really stand no chance, like Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker or Fox News contributor Ben Carson. I like to refer to those types as comedic fodder once the GOP presidential debates get going.

And until recently Mitt Romney has been “leading” many polls. Yes, the same Mitt Romney from 2012 who ran one of the most embarrassing campaigns in modern political history. You know Republicans are desperate when Mitt Romney is leading a list of potential presidential candidates for 2016.

But now Jeb Bush has sprung onto the scene and seems all but certain to be ready to throw his proverbial hat into the 2016 presidential ring. It makes sense; he was governor of Florida so they think he can carry a key swing state, he’s married to a Hispanic so they think he can lure in some of the Latino vote, and he has name recognition which is huge in politics.

Though there’s just one key element Republicans seem to be missing: The American people have had enough of the Bush family.

Let’s think about this realistically for a moment. His father George H. Bush failed to get re-elected and his brother George W. Bush only won the popular vote in one of his elections and left office with one of the lowest approval ratings of any president in U.S. history.

So it’s not as if the American people are in love with the Bush family. Besides, his own mother essentially said she doesn’t think he should become president.

And do Republicans really think that on the ballot box if the two last names they have to choose from are Clinton and Bush, that they’re going to choose Bush?


Then there’s the most recent poll Gallup did on Jeb Bush last summer showing the former Florida governor with a favorability rating of 31 percent.

Though I’m sure that number has inched up some with the popular press he’s been getting from many within the conservative media. But still, a favorability rating of 31 percent is pretty bad for someone who’s not currently even in office.

And maybe I’m way off on this, but I just can’t see the American people electing another Bush whose only political experience is being governor of a state and son to George H. Bush. Because last time we did that, it didn’t work out so well for us.

Then it’s not as if the GOP really wants him to run, they’re just desperate. They’re almost certain Hillary is going to announce her candidacy sometime this year, and they’re looking for anyone to put up a respectable fight against her because almost none of the candidates they have “on deck” stand a snowball’s chance in hell at even coming close.

But when it’s all said and done, he doesn’t stand a chance. George W. Bush’s tainted legacy is still lingering in this country, and has almost all but ruined the family name in the immediate future. Two more years isn’t going to wash that away. In fact, his candidacy will only bring it back to the surface.

There’s a reason why almost no current Republicans have been eager to embrace anything they did during the Bush administration or hoist the former president up alongside them on the campaign trail.

And while almost all other Republicans can avoid George W. Bush’s legacy like the plague if they want to, his brother Jeb won’t have that luxury. The stench of his brother’s failure, and all of the horrible things that happened during those eight years, will haunt Jeb throughout his entire campaign.

    • Celine

      I agree! He is dirty all by himself with the things he pulled as governor, the worst of which was assisting in the stealing of the 2000 election. The people of Florida ended up hating him. The The Tea Party hates him. But it would be entertaining…..

      • sherry06053

        It would be, wouldn’t it? Imagine him being the person that the GOP chose as the best they could come up with!

      • mozwhite

        I’m not a Jeb fan, but explain how he assisted in the stealing of the 2000 election. I’m always baffled by this claim. Al Gore lost a court case based on an argument he himself initiated. I’ve always thought, if anything, Al Gore gave that election away by making the wrong legal argument.

      • wallybobble

        didn’t he stop the counting of ballots when it looked like Gore was going to win?

      • mozwhite

        Seriously? Gore was never going to win. In every possible scenario, with the exception of a statewide recount that also would have had to include overvotes (choosing 2 candidates at the same time), which was very, very unlikely, Bush would have won. Gore never even requested the statewide recount. Independent investigations by the Miami Herald, New York Times, Washington Post (hardly Fox News), and others all concluded Bush would have won in any potential scenario. These are facts.

      • Ron

        you’re good at making stuff up.

      • Bobloblaw67

        Ahhhhh. No he’s right on the money.

      • Jacob Eagleshield

        No,the SCOTUS HANDED Bush the Presidency.

      • Bobloblaw67

        Their was no point at which gore was going to win.

      • What do you mean when you state, “Al Gore gave that election away by making the wrong legal argument.”? What should his legal argument have been?

    • Jonah Quinn

      Don’t forget the Terri Shiavo incident. As Florida’s Governor Jeb Bush ignored Terri’s husband’s wishes and legally forced a feeding tube to be inserted in a brain dead patient. When Mr. Shiavo went all the way to the Supreme Court to overturn Jeb Bush’s order, Jeb still schemed to evade the court’s order, and even initiated a criminal investigation of Mr. Shiavo in retaliation.

      So much for Republicans not interfering in personal rights, eh?

      • digitalmatt

        I bet that tube incident will get him the evangelical vote.

  • Dave Bayer

    This is delutional thinking! Republicans can run a piece of dog dropping and win! Never make the democratic party complacent as they do not vote then! This is our biggest mistake is not taking the Power of the Republican Party seriously then our voters feel fine we got this I don’t have to vote he can’t Win anyway! The Republicans actually use this to there advantage they play the underdog card then if the underdog shows even a small bit of wisdom he looks like a World leader! George Bush is the perfect example of this) Wise up all the Republican Candidates are a threat to our way of life and prosperity for ALL Americans!
    Jeb Bush has name recognition! Which the Republicans have Hero Worship for! We only win when we turn out to vote and that unfortunately with Democrats has to be a personal fight against something that actually effects their personal life! Republicans vote like it’s a religious obligation! Unfortunetly Democrats have not learned how very important their vote is hence mid term elections! God Bless America if Jeb Bush wins God Help Us!

    • Dave Girvin

      The dems disappointed the hell out of me in November, lazy, complacent, slightly arrogant, thinking no one in their right mind would vote for the Repugs non agenda, (which no one did) and they won. Handed it the the creeps on a plater. I voted from my couch in Mexico, WTF !

      • gladness

        Democrats could start using a better primary system. One in which you vote up if you want the candidate, 0 if you’re indifferent, and down if you are against them. That will bring a stronger consensus and make voters more committed to following up. That’s what happened during this administration. Obama could not tell what we wanted, and could not let us know just how serious the republicans were about destroying the nation as long as he was in power. Now we have him reading sad tweets on jimmy kimmel… and that’s a real low point…

    • Jacob Eagleshield

      Now who is delusional. We are talking about the Party that brought us,Mr. 47%,Rick (oops1 Perry,Sarah(I can see Russia from my house),Tod(legitimate rape) Aiken,Birther Trump,Mr. Cantalope legs,
      Louie Gohmert,who looks like a plucked chicken,and called the President a Monkey,Rick(lemur in the headlights) Scott, Baby Highie Christie,and Rick Mr. Holier than Thou Santorum. This 2016 version of the GOP clown Car is a joke. Democrats could run Humfrey the Hump Day camel and win by a landslide. as for mid terms. A collective GOP majority of 50.60 % out of a 35% turnout is hardly indicative of the wishes of the country,and certainly no mandate.
      Dems had no chance to take the House anyway,due to illegal GOP gerrymandering in ’10,and voter suppression. Gop is losing their grip and they know it. There are just so many old,white.protestant,rich white men to go around. GOP has alienated everyone else with a brain.

    • Democrats had the majority votes in the senate and the house during Obama’s 1st term and they did nothing with that power to push through their agenda. Sometimes I wonder if the back and forth bickering is just for show to keep our attention focused while something else is happening elsewhere? It appears that the 2 parties hate each other, but behind closed doors they have the same agenda. Like they say, Divide and conquer. Their public hate for each other is dividing the people of this country.

  • Dave Bayer

    Your wrong your thinking with a democrats mindset the Republicans think the Bush’s are God’s Gift to us!
    They think Jeb is the next Messiah! Never play that down! They have the numbers to win if democrats don’t vote

    • Mike

      Thanks for the basic math.

    • Bobloblaw67

      The donors think that. Conservatives certainly don’t.

  • regressive white trash reli

    luckily history has shown that NON presidential elections the gerrymandering of regressive white trash gOP scum has some effect ( see: 2010/ 2014),,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,even MORE fortunate is history showing us that PRESIDENTIAL election years (see: 2008/2012) democrats get off their butts and VOTE— so the question portends– who IS the “GOP” candidate? who IS the BEST/most ‘qualified’???? all I can do is laugh as our country gets better economically and the republicans continue to serve up ” benghazi’ and ” Kenya” and ” abortion” and ” jesus hate gay marriage” and “sharia law” and ” war on Christmas”,,,,,,,,

  • Claregirl

    Everybody thought Romney was going to win. As a matter of fact, Karl Rove had a hissey fit when Obama won. They have not friggin’ clue what goes on with the American public as far as the presidential election is concerned. It will be Hillery against Jeb and Jeb will go down like the Titanic.

    • JimmyHoffa1

      Romney came very close to winning. Sadly, he made one crucial mistake and that was moving far right to appease the Tea Party.

      • Ron

        close to winning?/ lost by 5 million votes and blowout in electoral. That’s close??? You don’t play horseshoes, do you?

  • elyhim

    Shiavo. That is all.

  • Howard Treesong

    I actually stand in awe of the republican party. Here is a ‘political movement’, if you want to call it that, which succeeds in getting people to vote for them even though all their policies enacted so far are clearly and wildly against most of those voters’ self best interest. The fact that you can so consistently make so many people do that, even though they’re always the worse off for it, that takes some special kind of talent.

    I can’t see who would be a good candidate for the republican side in 2016. They need someone competent and not crazy. I couldn’t tell you who that would be for their side.

    • Bobloblaw67

      Glad you know what everyone’s best interest is.

      • Ron

        you aren’t real bright, are ya?? either that or you’re rich.Otherwise, tell me what the Repub. party has done for the lwer or middle class in the last 6 years.

      • Jacob Eagleshield

        Since 1983 when Saint Regan shoved slight of hand economics down the nations throat,the GOP has been waging a war of economic genocide on the people who do all the REAL work. You know,the ones whose labor made all those ‘job creators rich in the first place.Same old crap. The rich get the gold mine,ordinary people get the shaft. Thanks Ronnie!

      • I believe the Reagan administration called it the trickle down theory. Am I right? If employers didn’t have to pay so much in taxes, than they would have more money in order to create jobs for the ordinary people. The greed just grew from there.

      • Howard Treesong

        It’s my way of giving back to a country that’s been good to me.

    • Linda Maxwell

      Voters like to vote r no matter if they take jobs away or vote another Bush who has to ask george w how to do the job in.

  • JimmyHoffa1

    The fact that Mr. Clifton refers to governors of states, multi-millionaire businessmen, senators and congressman as jokes clearly shows he has a partisan agenda and no business being taken seriously by anyone. Mitt Romney has shown himself not only as an excellent candidate for president, most of what he predicted in terms of Russia has come true, while Pres. Obama now has egg on his face for saying something as stupid as “The 1980s called and want its politics back.”

  • He should run. His chances are not horrible. Is a long race. A lot can happen. Win a couple of debates, avoid scandals, be a contender in key states and you are doing ok.

  • digitalmatt

    I hope neither Bush or Clinton run. We don’t need to start on political dynasties. Between those two families I’ve seen enough.

  • Kenton Sallee

    Sidenote: I feel extremely disengaged from the entire process. Being independent probably doesn’t help. Political maneuvering and media snapshots seem more like sports footage or 1980’s TV commercials than real life. In my world it doesn’t matter what “side” you’re on. This isn’t a tennis match, and it isn’t a split between “you” or “I” winning. For some reason politics seems to be presented in the same format as sports: everything split into black&white, win or lose, and a hell of a lot of wasted $ and time. I’ll go pout in the corner now :)…..

    • Rebecca Smith

      I often describe U.S. politics has having been reduced to something as apparently trivial as “The Cola Wars.”

  • haseloff

    We should all just refuse to vote for Repubs OR Democrats. See what happens then…

  • DavidD

    I joined in the wishful thinking of the last election and got my head handed to me by the Texas GOP yet again.I knew no Democratic statewide candidate had a chance and that the Dems would lose seats but it was much worse than I thought.
    Assumptions are dangerous things and Jeb very well may be the next president.Hell he already stole one election.What makes you think he and Rove ,his daddy’s best boy won’t pull out all the stops in the next one.
    Underestimating Jeb is a very dangerous thing to do.
    People are really pissed at the whole charade that masquerades as a democratic process and know that nether party really represents their economic intrests..
    They will not vote unless the cowardly gutless corporate ass kissing Democratic neo liberal leadership is kicked out and the party runs as a FDR populist party again.
    I always vote.I always have and always will if nothing else to spite the fascist bastards who are running the show down here but most people in this state have given up on electoral democracy a long time ago.
    The rest of the country seems to be catching up.

    Never underestimate the power of the media. Jeb Bush could easily continue the criminal activity which began with his great grandfather Samuel, who started the Bush fortune. Samuel was the original Death Merchant of the War Department during WWI, one of the most despised people of his time for selling munitions to anyone willing to pay the right price.

    His son, Prescott, had three banking businesses confiscated from him and his bankster buddies by the Feds during WWII for doing business with the enemy: Nazi Germany. All that was swept under the congressional carpet so he could run a successful Senate race.

    Then, of course we had the ultimate idiot tool, George Bush Jr., traitor extraordinaire, who began slaughtering the Constitution in the wake of 9/11, a crime and conspiracy in which the entire Bush family was complicit. These people are vampires. Who would have EVER thought George Bush Jr. could have been elected for a second term; he was, in fact, installed in his first term while Americans heads spun at the shock of a completely rigged election. But it happened, thanks to the media.

    By his second term, thanks to the media, Americans heads were spinning the other way, ready to get behind him – the hero of 9/11, whose greatest claim to fame, other than slaughtering the constitution, was posing in that ridiculous flight suit as a war hero on USS Abraham Lincoln (google “Mission Accomplished Speech”). Don’t get me wrong; the mission was accomplished, but it was not the mission the Americans thought would secure their liberty and freedom. Conversely, it was the beginning of the extermination of their rights and freedoms. Of course, the media wasn’t interested in sharing that side of the story.

    None of this sort of insanity can happen without the help of a media which will stop at nothing to make sure the corporations that run it profit in the end, regardless of the casualties, regardless of the hits on our constitutional rights. With the Bush family, the bottom line ALWAYS has a dollar sign in front of it. PERIOD.

    NEVER underestimate the power of the media to spin the heads of Americans. If we don’t actively block Jeb Bush, we might be in for another ride through hell, and I personally, am sick and tired of the Bush hell ride. The entire family should be imprisoned for their crimes against humanity.

    And don’t forget George Bush Sr., who was an active member of the CIA under JFK (documented) and can easily be connected to this President’s assassination in spite of efforts to cover this up. JFK was strongly against the Bay of Pigs – the CIA’s failed fiasco in Cuba. He was strongly opposed to a continuation of what Eisenhower termed the industrialized military complex. He was actively making efforts to build relationships with our supposed enemies. With JFK there would be no war, and therefore no money for the war mongering Bush family and their gang of criminals. Oh, and let’s not forget the Panama Deception. Remember the laser weapons that literally melted human flesh? The war which targeted the poorest parts of panama civilians, killing mostly women and children, the war which set the blueprint for American foreign policy since then? Is it possible that one family can be so completely immersed in so much criminal activity – so much hell on earth and continue to run free, living life high on the hog?

      This is one of the most well-written, impressive essays I’ve seen lately. Thanks for this.

    • Bobloblaw67

      GHW Bush wasn’t in the CIA under JFK you loon. You’re off by a full ten years. I hate the Bushes but they have the ability to bring out the loons on the progressive left and libertarian right. People like you actually help the Bushes by looking so ridiculous.

    • Bobloblaw67

      JFK wasn’t strongly against the Bay Of Pigs. He just refused to send it reinforcements when it was all lost.

  • JNWesner

    The problem with this piece is that it’s written from my viewpoint. Did you know anybody who voted for Bush in 2000 or 2004? Neither did I. But many did. Please stop giving Democrats even more reason not to bother to vote. You’re hurting our cause.

  • Varuka Salt

    if the choices are Clinton and Bush I’m voting Green Party.

    • Ron

      so in essence,,, no sense voting. Just wasting time.

  • Bobloblaw67

    Scott Walker will win

  • Matthew S Vickrey

    Dave you voted from your couch in mexico please explain. To all of you I am a conservative that voted for bush both times and I am disgusted about jeb bush running. My party has no clue how to run a campaign because first off you need to be underhanded and sneaky just like Obama. Hey I don’t have to like it but Obama knew how to run his campaign. If jeb bush is the best we got I’m 40,i will sit this next election out. To all of you that think Clinton is going to make a good president you are crazy as well. As least I can admit it. Hillary is a very selfish woman just like Obama. You folks telling me the last six years have been great are lying. None of us are involved with the stock market so don’t even think of that argument. Bottom line is this country does not need bush or Clinton right now. We still have two more years of this current clown. Oh and the FCC bill getting signed next week. Any of you wonder why we can’t see the bill until it gets passed just like Obama care ? When is 332 pages of govt regulation good for anything ?

    • Andy Kinnard

      Only eight pages of that are new regulation. Try again. What could be the problem with classifying Internet service the same way we classify telephone service or other utilities (like most people think about it)?

  • gladness

    except the republican establishment also has a plan to reapportion electoral votes based on district voting, and failing that popular voting. First step is in Pennsylvania, with Florida, Ohio and Michigan not far behind. Under these circumstances a “revenge against obama and the democrats” platform with enhanced vote suppression techniques will assure that any 50-50 cases will go to the supreme court and then to the Republicans. It’s a win at all costs strategy.

  • John Petrie

    Why don’t you Progressive Nazi Commies take your crap and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine!

  • When Bush Jr. only had a 35% approval rate, no one expected him to win a second term either, but somehow he served another 4 year term. I can’t see the american public voting in another Bush either, but I’m also not going to hold my breath.

  • detroitrockcity

    In a staggering majority conservative nation like America, the only way for a Democrat to win a national election is for tens of millions of typically conservative voters to vote for the Democrat candidate. It happened for Obama (white guilt, they were all set with the Rs after 8 years of Bush, etc) twice. After what most people who are paying attention consider the biggest failure of a presidency in decades from Obama (his record makes Jimmy Carter seem like a raging success) the chances of anyone voting for a Democrat for a longtime seems highly unlikely at best. To the point where simply having a “D” after ones name on a ballot will be a serious handicapp (if not an automatic disqualification). But with all that aside, the fact remains, conservatives (fiscal not social) outnumbered liberals by roughly 2 to 1 when Obama came into office. That number has grown to where it will be almost 3 to 1 post Obama. If every last American 18 and over voted their conscience and left white guilt and PC, etc, at the door, the Republicans would win by a landslide. Wouldn’t even be close. Socialism is and will continue to be a dirty word in freedom loving America. Poll after poll tells us the people want lower taxes, smaller government providing few services. That’s not what the Democrat part is offering. The people want a secure border, a moratorium on immigration (or just more educated financially stable immigrants from Europe ie Spain, UK, German, Italy, etc, and less poor unskilled needy immigrants from Africa and Latin America and Mexico) lower taxes for all (tax the rich more sounds a lot like tax the blacks, gays, women etc. It’s not who we are as a people to single out and discriminate based on income. It’s no different than any other form of discrimination. Income discrimination is un-American. The people want cuts to welfare, cuts to social programs and for everyone to carry their own weight. The Democrats aren’t offering anything like this so they won’t win until they do. Traditional America is the majority and they want a country that looks more like 1958 than 2015. A conservative traditional nation and whoever can deliver that has the nomination in their pocket.
