Bush believes that a presidential candidate who is "willing to lose the primary to win the general" has the best shot at the White House.
"I don’t know if I’d be a good candidate or a bad one," Bush said at a Wall Street Journal CEO Council meeting on Monday evening in Washington, D.C. "I kinda know how a Republican can win, whether it’s me or somebody else – and it has to be much more uplifting, much more positive, much more willing to be... ‘lose the primary to win the general’ without violating your principles. It’s not an easy task, to be honest with you."
Should Bush run, his embrace of comprehensive amnesty legislation and Common Core will put him at odds with conservative voters in the early primary states. Bush, who said he would make a decision in "short order" about whether he will be a presidential candidate, revealed on Monday that he thinks a moderate Republican who runs as a moderate in the primary has the best chance of winning the White House.
I can hear it now.. another round of the fools' mantra chanted;
We must vote for Jeb, and all the progressive Rs!! because they are the lesser of the evils.
guaranteed to enable the progressive Rs forever.
GW Bush was and is a good man in my opinion, but Jeb is the family Idiot
BINGO .............. I'd NEVER vote for the fool !!!
BS, moderates @*$&%^! Enough with 'moderates'. They do nothing, stand for nothing, separate themselves from the commies—not one bit. NO, NO, NO.
MAYBE JEB GOT LOST IN THE FLA SWAMP..TOOK A WRONG TURN.
TOO BAD AN ALLIGATOR DID NOT EAT HIM
WE DO NOT NEED THIS NAZI PROGRESSIVE SOB
NOR DO WE NEED HILLARY ALINSKY OVOMIT CLINTON
WE MUST GET WHO WE WANT AND MAKE IT HAPPEN
Someone tell this POS to go home and STFU!!!!! He's no better suited to be POTUS than the current POS.
Too far out of realty to even find a coffee maker in the morning. He just shot himself in the foot for 2016.
Jeb Bush sounds like a moderate Democrat. He need not worry, he will not get conservative backing. The Republican party may have to be broken into a third party, one that libertarians, conservatives, and constitutionalists can support. If the GOP does not try to stop this amnesty as well as many pressing issues this time around, it's time to abandon them. We do not need big government and a government that ignores the will of the people any longer.
HOW TRUE,WE WOULD HATE TO GO THIRD PARTY BUUUUUUUT,WE WOULD SHOULD BUSH GET THE VOTE
This statement is exactly a reason why this s--t head should not be President or nominated as our candidate. It is obvious that he has been in a fantasy world if he doesn't realize that the conservatives in this party is the only ones who is holding it together. Bush, you are also one of my reasons for reversing my opinion about the 3rd Party. Let me tell you, his opinion are also found within our existing leadership.
And a strong Conservative candidate is the only person who will garner the independent vote and the democrats who are sick of their party vote. The arrogance is incredulous.
