Anybody But Bush In 2016?

It seems like ages ago, back in the days when we were selling bumper stickers supporting the presidential campaign of John Kerry and opposing the presidential disaster of George W. Bush. Bumper stickers like the Please, Not Bush item you see here date back to that time. It’s been years since we sold one of those because, well, Bush has been of the table.

Not any more. As I was looking around for information about the preparations for a 2016 Hillary Clinton for President campaign, I came across multiple references to similar preparations being made by Jeb, George W. Bush’s brother. Yes, it seems that we must brace ourselves for yet another Bush for President campaign.

Jeb Bush seems to be shadowing Hillary Clinton in many respects, even going so far as to schedule a public speech in Dallas on the same day that Hillary Clinton will appear there later this month.

not jeb bush 2016According to Time Magazine, Jeb Bush isn’t considered one of the top contenders for the 2016 Republican nomination at this point. However, such an assessment doesn’t mean much at this point. At the equivalent stage leading up to the 2004 presidential election, Senator Joseph Lieberman was being described as the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. His campaign ended up stalling under the weight of its “Jomentum”.

Just a little over a year ago, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich each took their turn as frontrunners for the Republican nomination. Remember Herman Cain? No one is promoting any 9-9-9 policies these days. Jeb Bush is, however, attending a private political retreat hosted by Herman Cain this month.

Maybe Jeb thinks he can win with a 10-10-10 plan.
