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.
NO MORE BUSHES!
Well that sounds like another rebel Republican who does not believe in the right side of things...we do not need another Bush in the Whitehouse any more than we need another Clinton there either!!!!....WE MUST FIGHT FOR AMERICA AND GET US BACK TO OUR FOUNDING PRINCIPALS OR WE ARE GOING TO BECOME A COMMUNIST OR WORSE NATION! We have just about one more time to get it right or we are in for some terrible- terrible times in this country for all of us.....evil, the left, corruption, the unions, illegals and muslum's are set to tear this place state from state!!! We MUST stand up and fight hard to keep the truth of this country!!!
Who cares what Jeb Bush thinks?! Unless we live under a monarchy, the Bushes are done. I notice the mainstream is already trying to prop him up. Forget it. There are over 300 million citizens in the United States. If we can't find another presidential candidate who's last name isn't Bush, we might as well fold up the tent, pack up the station wagon and head back for home.
Just another Rhino .. will we ever learn ? .. we need the Conservative (Tea Party) to keep this Nation FREE..
With GODS help we will take the Country back to Greatness ..
Amen Joanne. I hope everyone is asking for that Help.
What? not surprise, he was the first one to push "come on Core", his mother thinks they are royalty, an elitist, and the rest are very much for globalism. It "helps" their businesses.
They're simply lying to us, folks. Many of them campaigned on repealing Obamacare and also said they were going to fight Obama on his unlawful executive actions. Really? They'e NOT going to do a damn thing on Amnesty or Obamacare. They're just deathly afraid of a govt. SHUT-DOWN. We're already beginning to hear dismal predictions from these mice like, "There isn't much we can do." How pathetic.
A gov't shut down caused a landslide victory for conservatives. I say shut it down again.
What do we need the federal gubment for?
