Exclusive: Jeb Bush Meets with
Former Aides near White House

National Review, by Robert Costa

Washington, D.C. — Former Florida governor Jeb Bush met Monday with a group of his former staffers at the J. W. Marriott hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, just steps from the White House. Bush, a potential 2016 presidential contender, spent an hour in the hotel’s Cannon room, reminiscing and entertaining questions about his political future. In an interview with NRO, Bush did not rule out a presidential run. “I am here to catch up with folks and promote education reform,” he said, smiling. When asked again whether he will issue a Sherman-type statement about his future, Bush remained coy. “We

Exclusive: I, and many others right-wingers, will never, never, never vote for a Bush again. PS - We have contempt for anyone who even considers the idea.

I liked W, but I can tell you the Democrats are giddy over the possibilities of another Bush running. Their campaign talking points are pre-fab on this one. They will just stand their and point at his last name.

Jeb? Nice man. Nice family. Hispanic wife. Great . . . NOT! You think the RNC could find someone younger without the last name Bush to appeal to the now under-30 crowd and their drippy parents who gave them everything they wanted on a credit card.

This is Nov 2012...I have miles and miles of tribulation to endure before the primary season in 2016...my guess is that I would vote for anyone(Rubio/Palin/JBush/Ryan/Rand Paul,etc) in 2016 to get the boot of the Democrat/Communist Party off my neck

Does the GOP never learn? Are they really going to engage in more tail-chasing by entertaining the thought of another Bush? I have given the GOP a lot of money over the years and I have now given up on the Party. Unless they can find another Lee Atwater, I will vote Third Party or not vote at all.

I would listen to his advice on "the Hispanic vote," I´d accept him as Secretary of HHS. But president/ line of succession? Wrong for that position and still bad for him, the Bushes, conservatives and the country if not otherwise wrong. (OK, if it´s him or Chris "heckuva job, Barry" junk science and sharia friendly Christie, it´s Jeb and then shoot myself anyway.)

This arm of the Republican Party has made it abundantly clear that the only use for the conservative viewpoint is to sit down, shut up and vote for whom they say. Sorry, I´m done with this group. Like Mama Bush said of Sarah Palin, "He should go back to Florida and stay there!"

That the MSM always wanted Jeb as president rather than W, should tell you something.

But the GOP establishment, those guys and gals who so graciously invite us to vote Republican every couple of years, but otherwise make it clear we should keep our ignorant peasant noses out of "their" party´s business, have probably already selected him as Candidate and Savior. And most importantly, it´s Jeb´s Turn!

Next step: GOP leadership talks three or four naive, credulous "conservatives" into running in order to split the conservative vote, thereby guaranteeing the nomination to Jeb, with 43% of the party´s backing. (Same as 2008 and 2012.)

#19. As a matter of fact, for those who obviously forgot, it was McCain´s aged mother who inadvertently told the truth. In an interview, she was asked what about the conservatives in the party who were disappointed in her son being the nominee. She said something like what choice do they have. (Sorry I do not have the exact quote.). I remember her elitist snarkiness with regard to the conservatives spoke volumes. You are right. As long as we pretend its not true, we will continue to lose.

Jeb will be pushed on us, just like Romney was pushed on us. The only fight the Republicans are willing to fight, is the one against the conservatives.

PACS, campaign advisers and lower-level staffers all stand to make huge money. And we will lose yet another election.

NRO should be ashamed of itself for this goofy headline. Bush is in DC for the annual policy meeting for his Foundation for Excellence in Education. The meeting date and location was set for this meeting before the end of last year´s meeting! I attend it every year but couldn´t this year due to a last minute illness. His "former" aides are there because many of them are now part of the world of education reform and many of them still work with him in various leadership capacities.

This article was intended to do nothing else than get Republicans and conservatives screaming at each other over the prospect of another Bush. With that said, Jeb Bush is a fine man, was a tremendously good, conservative Governor who actually implemented many of the reforms that he promised. He left Florida in far better shape than he found it, and that was with 4 major hurricanes during his administration.

Finally, I hate, and I mean hate, that conservatives bought into the trash peddled by the MSM about GWB...you can hardly tell a difference b/t conservative sites and liberal sites when you read posts about him. GWB was a rare leader during a dark time in our nation´s history. Lesser men would have crumbled.

Poppy Bush sold us out with "read my lips" and then agreed to increased taxes to "cut the deficit"-- all it did was make the demonrats happy to put us further into debt.

Wow, if we could only go back to THOSE deficits back in the early 90´s!!!!

W started out wanting to be the new Reagan, and ended up spending like a drunken sailor (no offense to sailors).

I think we have had enough Bush family members on the national stage.....

Although I would probably agree with Jeb Bush´s politics, that last name would be a liability, maybe an insurmountable liability, in national politics. If your last name is Kennedy, it´s different, even if you are a badly behaving skunk, or an inarticulate nincompoop.

An unexpected lesson in diversity

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary.

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.

But we were wrong. There was a time when McCain´s association with Keating looked like it would bring an end to the senator´s political career. 1989, Keating´s Lincoln Savings and Loan went belly up, putting taxpayers on the hook for $3.4 billion, or roughly $13.60 from every man, woman and child then living in the United States.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
