Jeb Bush reportedly considering 2016 POTUS run, conservatives say no thanks


The New York Times reports that the former Florida governor is considering a 2016 presidential run:

Mr. Bush is said by friends to be weighing financial and family considerations — between so many years in office and the recession his wealth took a dip, they said, and he has been working hard to restore it — as well as the complicated place within the Republican Party of the Bush brand. Asked this week about whether his father would run, Jeb Bush Jr. told CNN, “I certainly hope so.”

For now, however, “It’s neither a ‘no’ nor a ‘yes’ — it’s a ‘wait and see,’ ” said Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union and a longtime friend and adviser to Mr. Bush. “It continues to intrigue him, given how much he has to share with the country.”

But conservatives are in no mood to find out what Bush has to share with the country. Whether due to Bush fatigue or doubt about his conservatism, they’re overwhelmingly urging Jeb to keep his hat firmly out of the ring:

RNC say no to Jeb Bush! For once, the RNC must support Conservatives!

Kudlow thinks Jeb Bush is first in line for 2016. We need a candidate who is not a Bush nor someone is just next in line. Loved Bush but, no
