GOP senators warn of Bush fatigue if Jeb runs in 2016

Senate Republicans are warning that “Bush fatigue” could weigh on GOP chances of capturing the White House in 2016 if Jeb Bush wins the nomination.

Many Republicans think the former Florida governor would have made a better president than his brother George W. Bush, but GOP lawmakers now wonder if he has fallen out of step with the ideological direction of the party.

More than seven years after leaving office, he’s struck a decidedly centrist tone which could make it hard to mobilize conservative base voters.
“It’s time to turn the page,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe (Okla.), a senior member of the GOP conference.

“Looking at it practically, there are others who could do a better job in terms of winning the election,” he added. “It’s a little bit of Bush fatigue but the other thing is for a Republican to win a race like that … you got to have someone who really engenders enthusiasm in the base. Jeb’s a wonderful guy and all that, but I don’t believe he’d be able to do that.”

    The second bush was 1 to many, I hope America is smart enough not to elect a third.

    Time for Jesse, the extortionist, Jackson to come out of his hole & spout his erstwhile command anew: “Get out the Bushes”. He was about fifteen years ahead of time with that one but it should resonate clearer now. Adios!

    Hey Jeb. Do the gangbanging M13 criminals come to our country and murder and rob and sell drugs out of love?

  • David in MA says:

    Jeb Bush will never be accepted by the American voter. The only reason he is being touted is he speaks Spanish and was governor of a highly populated Spanish community, little cuba. THIS will not set well with the rest of the country.

      Jeb’s wife is MEXICAN…. I don’t know if she is legal or illegal, but I am sure she has lots of family she would like to transport to the USA. I have Mexican friends but they are more patriotic than a lot of USA born Americans. John proudly served in the US Marines, leads our groups Pledge of Allegiance and he is Mexican by birth, American in his heart and legally here in this country. That is the way it should be!
