WASHINGTON (CNN) – Jeb Bush for Senate? His famous older brother thinks so.
In an interview with CNN’s Senior Political Correspondent Candy Crowley, President Bush responded “yes” when asked whether his brother Jeb should run for the senate seat being vacated in 2010 by Republican Mel Martinez.
The president said he did not know if his brother, a popular former Florida governor, would ultimately run and had not discussed the prospect with the elder President Bush.
“I haven’t talked to my dad about whether or not he wants Jeb to run. First of all knowing my dad I bet he would say I want Jeb to do that which is best for him and then he would go on to say but if he chose to run he would be a great United States senator and he would be.”
President Bush also said he was “neutral” in next year’s Texas governor’s race which Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison will likely mount a tough Republican primary challenge against Governor Rick Perry.
NO MORE BUSHES ON THE PUBLIC PAYROLL EVER AGAIN!!!!!
NO MORE BUSHES.BROTHERFATHER.MOTHER,SISTER,COUSIN, AUNT, UNCLE NO MORE!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY GET WORSE AND WORSE. THEY NEED TO TRY ANOTHER LINE OF WORK AND STOP LIVING OFF THE WORKING PEOPLE.
ANOTHER ONE ???? I THOUGHT THEY WERE OVER WITH
AMERICA WISE UP !!!!
DONT BE FOOLED!!!!
"FOOL ME ONCE SHAME ON YOU, FOOL ME TWICE SHAME ON ME"!!!
THE BUSH LEGACY IS OVER!!!!!!
HISTORY BOOKS WILL TELL
CANT WAIT TO WRITE MANY PAPERS ON THIS
Have we NOT learned our lesson where the Bush Family is concerned? :)
Fool me once... shame on you. Fool me twice... shame on me. Fool me three times... what the heck was I thinking... and I deserve exactly what I get! Seriously..... learn the lesson or pay the price!
It'll take more than two years to rehabilitate the family brand, hopefully forever.
Oh my Lord, not another one.....haven't we suffered enough for the past 8 years without the thought of yet another Bush getting into the Senate and maybe running for President at some point!!!!
This is a very scary idea!!!!!!!
The "Bush legacy" – 41 and 43 – has done enough damage to the country. No more Bushes ... or Clintons.
It is too early to tell if we want another Clinton, or another Obama, Michelle Obama as our commander-in-chief in a dangerous world.
Out with the old in with the new. December 16th, 2008 3:41 pm ET
We don't need any more Bushes which includes
Father of Bushes
Mother of Bushes
Cousin of Bushes
Sister of Bushes
Brother of Bushes
Daughter of Bushes
Son of de Bushes
That goes double for Kennedys.
Noooooooooo! Enough with the Bushes already!
As for Jeb and W being popular governors, so was Sarah Palin and we all know how that turned out.
The President wants his brother to COMPETE for a senate seat. Harry Reid want another Kennedy to be APPOINTED. God forbid the people decide. I know little about either person, but it would seem to me that the appointment of someone with a famous name is a little worse than allowing someone with a famous name an opportunity to be elected.
cant believe that over 65 million people actually believed that clowns pandering of hope and change.
NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES...NO MORE BUSHES... ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
slow dow n Jeb, may be a good governor, but a good US senator, that takes more than governing, it takes obama like brains, kenedy like brains not bush like brains! You need more than a name Jeb!!!
DOES ANYBODY HAVE A SHOE?!?!?!?!
As long as he runs in Florida who cares.
Florida- you made us proud this last election. Please don't disappoint us with Jeb!
To all you people blasting away at folks that wouldn't vote simply because of the bush name would you vote for p person named
Hitler or Satan. Hell you probably didn't vote for Barack because his middle name is Hussein, freakin morons
Roosevelt and Kennedy dynasties are one thing, but the Bushes? Even George Bush, Sr. only seems better because the completely lackluster administration of his eldest son.
All you Libs attacking another Bush running for office are probably just fine with another Kennedy. At least the Bush's are not a bunch of murderers and rapists like the Kennedy clan. Are you going to let this one through CNN Censor???
Simply incredible. I hear no one talking about Caroline Kennedy aspiring to the New York Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton. And was Hillary from New York? No more so than Caroline's uncle Robert who held the Senate seat previously. While I would have to doubt the intelligence of the people of New York by clinging to famous folks from other parts of the country to serve in the US Senate, ultimately it is their own choice, just as the people of Florida will decide whether or not to elect Jeb Bush. In terms of qualifications, what qualification does Caroline Kennedy have to serve as United States Senator from New York? Unfortunately, her only qualification is her last name.
Funny how we have too many Bushes. I think we can say we have too many Kennedys as well. If it were really out with the old and in with the new we wouldn't be talking about Caroline Kennedy!
