We are on the road to the Presidential nomination season, which will begin officially right after midterm elections are decided in November!
There are many Republicans considering a possible run for the nomination, but the most intriguing is former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who left office four years ago and refused to run for Governor or Senator in 2010, which some wondered if he might!
Jeb has been very quiet for a long time, but lately he has been agreeing to comment on events and issues, and he seems upset that his brother has been, in his mind, so mistreated by the Obama Administration, which in his way of thinking, still is blaming his brother for the troubles they face, rather than taking responsibility!
It seems to many that Jeb may feel a need to run to vindicate his brother and his dad, but it also seems to many that his name is his biggest barrier to a candidacy!
Is the country really ready, in the midst of the Great Recession, and still involved in both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that his brother began, to accept a THIRD Bush Presidency?
Would a Jeb Bush Presidency be that different than that of his father and brother? Would a lot of the same people who backed the two earlier Bushes rally around a Jeb candidacy?
Ultimately, would Jeb Bush offer a different path for the Republican party, many of whom have repudiated his brother as a phony conservative, who did great damage to the party, possibly long term?
No one questions that Jeb is very intelligent and highly motivated, much more than his brother, but is it too much to ask the party and the country to accept a dynasty of the Bushes, which could add years 13-20 to the history of the Bush Family in the White House?
The coming months will show us what will happen regarding this intriguing concept of another Bush Presidency!
