    Jeb Bush wonít rule out 2016 run

    Jeb Bush isn't ruling out a run for the White House in 2016.

    "That's way off into the future," Bush, a Republican and former Florida governor, responded on Monday's "Today" show when asked about a possible presidential bid. "I won't [rule it out], but I won't declare today either."

    Bush was on the NBC show to promote his upcoming book, “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution," but the interview quickly turned into idle 2016 temperature taking.
    I think a presidential run by Jeb Bush is going to be very problematic. He speaks fluent Spanish, as does his brother, George W, and supports a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens. On top of that, he is very supportive of New Jersey Governor Christie, who has now become a pariah amongst the Republican faithful.

    However, should he pull off a miracle and get the nomination, his candidacy would be very competitive, which is something I cannot say about other possible candidates. But 2016 is a long ways off. The road to that nomination is going to be a very interesting one, and the winners of the ongoing civil war inside the GOP will determine who runs.

    Why do they keep resurrecting this clunker? Jeb Bush, like his brother and father, is the most nauseating sort of Liberal globalist. His candidacy would be worse than McCain, worse than Dole, worse than Romney. The media would love him.

    You know the point of wining a election is to win the majority of Americans, not just the conservitives?

    Check that spelling on Conservatives, will you? Also, as we all know, you Hispanics are NEVER going to vote for a Republican, no matter how many freebies you get.

    And that kind of thinking will not help you win a general election if you insult part of the electorate.

    Nope. It is to win 270 electoral votes as will be decided by less than a majority of Americans. Obama won with only a little better than 20% support of all Americans

    I think this country has had enough of the Bush dynasty...I can't see him coming close to winning. Throw his name away.

    Math. 310 million or so people divided by 62M or so votes received is about 5:1 or 20% of americans. Nobody wins the majority of America because so many Americans either cannot or do not not vote.

    If you don't vote you don't count.
