SORT BY Relevancy
When talk began in earnest about a Jeb Bush presidential candidacy for 2016, former First Lady Barbara Bush was noticeably cool about the idea. Alas, she eventually changed her mind. But as veteran test takers know, it is usually wise to trust your first instinct when deciding a question.
Tonight we will examine the myriad weaknesses of another Bush run at the White House. A spotty electoral record, weakness in coalition building, the lingering suspicion about the Bush penchant for international adventurism, a closed and inbred circle of political advisors, an often tone-deaf approach to communications and identity politics, a detached bubble of family affluence- all of these translate into a damaged political brand that would be very problematic in a presidential race.
The Bushes are a distiguished political family with a commendable record of public service. But the times are not suited for yet another President Bush. The Republican goal for this election should be to win the White House, not provide a comfortable security blanket for the GOP establishment.
A hodge podge of subjects today to get you thinking about how and why you are becoming a paricipant in your community.
We start with Jeb Bush and his take on Common-core education. Are you ready to stand up?
We will switch to the terror and horror of ISIS and what we should do about it.
Next I cover a local story that exposes what local governments are up to and why we should always be looking local first poitically.
A Note from Jeb Bush
December 16, 2014 at 9:59am
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
Like many of you, our family was blessed with the opportunity to gather together over the recent Thanksgiving holiday.Columba and I are so proud of the wonderful adults our children have become, and we loved spending time with our three precious grandchildren.
We shared good food and watched a whole lot of football.
We also talked about the future of our nation. As a result of these conversations and thoughtful consideration of the kind of strong leadership I think America needs, I have decided to actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States.
In January, I also plan to establish a Leadership PAC that will help me facilitate conversations with citizens across America to discuss the most critical challenges facing our exceptional nation. The PAC’s purpose will be to support leaders, ideas and policies that will expand opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.
In the coming months, I hope to visit with many of you and have a conversation about restoring the promise of America.
Best wishes to you and your families for a happy holiday season. I’ll be in touch soon.
Today we will discuss how Jeb Bush cannot help channeling his brother George W Bush’s failed narrative, propensity to lie, and policies. Can he be so naive to believe that can get him elected?
The following Jeb Bush statement echos his brother more succinctly and is much more inconspicuously dangerous. “If sanctions are imposed by the United States then other countries would have the choice. Will they look at Iran as a business proposition?” Jeb Bush asked. “Perhaps jeopardizing their relationship both commercial and political and diplomatic with the United States? I think that choice would be pretty clear for some countries, maybe not Russia and China to your point. But certainly other countries would have to deeply consider whose side they are on.”
Is he channeling George W Bush? Is that not the same as ‘You are either with is or against us‘? Jeb Bush would be George W Bush’s third term.
What do you think. Let's talk about it.

Join me "In the Pickle Barrel" as we begin a detailed look at what I consider to be the advantages, disadvantages and the "ball & chains" attached to each candidate seeking the White House. Jeb Bush was the winner of today's drawing. Many feel Jeb Bush to be the one to ultimately face (presumably) Hillary Clinton in the 2016 General Election. Maybe, maybe not.
Join in the conversation on today's modified time (one hour instead of two) by entering the online chat room or feel free to call in and share your views live, on air at 855-236-2486.
Are we out of original ideas?
Bush asks: “Do I have the skills to do it in a way that tries to lift people’s spirits and not get sucked into the vortex?” No. But, the waves of the Bushes and the Clintons are coming as 2016 nears.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he is thinking of running for president in 2016 and will make a decision sometime in the “near future”.
We’ll discuss Jeb with Nicholas Ballasy, a video journalist based in Washington, DC and a contributor to PJ Media.
