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.
Wow, and I've always liked Jeb until NOW. Jeb, You doint JUST lose Conservatives but many others. Oh well. If thats the route you want to go, so be it and ALL that measn is that you will be screwing the whole country with your statements. Wow, I'm shocked.... Hey Jeb, just so you know, there went my donations to the repub party also. Now, win with that.
We don't need another Bush or Clinton.
GUESS WHAT we do not need or want another BUSH hanging around in the White House anymore then we need or want another Obama. If the asshole runs I won't vote for him. Or Hillery "the fibber" Clinton either.
This is why I will not vote for this moron and enemy of our constitutional Republic. Will the American people elect another enemy of this nation to the high office of President or will we take an immovable stand that says we have had enough of these godless snakes who are determined to impose their left wing liberal philosophies upon a people who reject their godless ideologies?
voted twice for his brother.....but would not in a million years ever vote jeb for president.
OH Jed! US, the Conservatives will fix you up in the primaries. Tell US now will you not need US on your road to the White House?
We the Conservatives will pick who gets nominated. And I can tell you now. It's not going to be you Numnuts!
I think this idiot is related to Nancy Pelosi.
Sounds like ol'Jeb's trying to loose the race already...Semper Fi Nam 66-67
If Jeb is the Republican nominee and there is no 3rd party candidate, I will not vote.
Jed Bush is done
I agree Joy we definitely need some alternative to the existing Republican leadership. The last election should have told them that they are on a "short leash", but I just do not believe that want a different direction for the country.
