Jeb Bush Should Have Kept His Mouth Shut…

Jeb Bush says a Republican should challenge Trump in 2020

 

Washington (CNN) Former 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said he thinks a Republican should challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s election, arguing the party “ought to be a given a choice.”

 

“I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” said Bush, who also served as the governor of Florida, in an interview with David Axelrod that will air Saturday on “The Axe Files.” He added that beating Trump in 2020 will be difficult for anyone because “he has a strong, loyal base” and “it’s hard to beat a sitting president.”

 

“But to have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative I think is important,” he added.

 

“And our country needs to have competing ideologies that people — that are dynamic, that focus on the world we’re in and the world we’re moving towards rather than revert back to a nostalgic time.”

 

Bush’s comments came as he was discussing Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, whose inauguration speech in January caused some to question whether or not he was eyeing a 2020 bid.

 

In his own speech at the inauguration, Bush lauded Hogan, regarding him as being “at the top of a list of leaders that I admire today because what’s happening here in Annapolis is the antithesis of what’s happening in Washington, DC, these days.”

 

“I didn’t realize I was part of his pre-campaign,” Bush quipped during his interview with Axelrod, adding that when he heard the speech, “I kind of got a sense that maybe this was an opening, at least, for (Hogan) to consider (a presidential run).”

 

In the weeks following his inauguration, Hogan, a moderate Republican, told CNN he hasn’t closed the door to challenging Trump in a Republican primary.

 

“People are talking to me about it,” he said at the the time. “I’m flattered people are saying that and including me in those discussions. My focus, my plan right now is to stay here for four years and do the best job I can in Maryland, but I’ve said, ‘You never say never.’ Who knows what’s going to happen.”

 

Bush didn’t say whether or not he’s spoken to Hogan about a potential run, instead offering advice to Republicans ahead of the election by telling Axelrod that the party needs to “offer a compelling alternative” to Democratic ideas rather than just calling their ideas “bad.”

We will fortunately have 6 more years of Trump and through that period we will make a substantial return to morality and re-establish the traditional conservative common sense values that America is built upon.

I wish everything you said was true. Unfortunately,what you envision will never be, because the people who can create and sustain that vision are quickly being overrun in their own countries. I know we are all supposed to bend the knee to the Leftist propaganda that all cultures are equal, but the people coming here are not like us – at all. None of their countries are anything like ours. We create what we create, over and over again, wherever we go. But that time is finished unless Western Man reasserts himself, and yes I mean himself. It is the men who will fix this – or not. If they don’t, then the white man deserves his oblivion. Our women will screw whoever wins.

We will not have 6 more years if Trump doesn’t make major headway on the boarder. Democrats are setting up for illegals to vote and states to change electoral votes. While they are doing this Republicans are doing next to 0 to fix problems and Trump is either being about the border or having his own party turn against him.

I’m pretty disillusioned with Hogan. Thought that he may be a good governor but alas he has capitulated himself at the altar of progressivism. He’s a charlatan.
Hogan’s father. Had no idea about this til recently.

I’d like to see Romney run so Trump & his loyal followers can pound sand up the posterior side of his golden underwear for as long as he can take it!

F him. He’s as sleazy as the day is long.

In addition, the dozen Republican Senators voting against the wall should be tied to trees along the north side of the Rio and see how they are treated by our new neighbors on their way into the U S of A.

The Republicans will never, ever, not in a thousand years, hold the Presidency again if they run anyone less Trump-like. Period, end of story.

Who here thinks those that support President Trump will vote for less in the future?

Prepare for Islamo-Socialism to come stepping in, either in 2024 or 2028. More than likely the former.

It could possibly happen In 2020 as Democrats are setting up to steam the election through illagal voting, electoral college changes with the census, and states changes the electoral college votes.

Yes. Didn’t they already try that during the last election? 15 other candidates trying to tell us “that’s not who we are”. We had jeb!, Rubio, kasich and the woman all trying to tell us we Americans need to be pc rino eunuchs. We gave a resounding no to all of them and picked trump. Bush still thinks he’s relevant but he’s only relevant to the global uniparty

Rich spoiled brat leftist Jeb appears on a leftist show and does not attempt to discuss issues to attack Trump. This is the typical leftist strategy, since Trump wins on the issues, they must attack him personally.

Bush was handed everything in life, and is poorly educated, with his silly Latin Studies degree.

Low energy Jeb still doesn’t know what the heck he is talking about.

Romney & Jeb! should run together for Pres/VP so they can both get sand pounded up their cornholes!

Maybe they should add Kasich as the White House Mailman.

I’d like to see Trump have some practice on his way to beating on the Democrat candidate.

I really wish he could run as a Dem as well, just so he could debate the 33 stooges.

I’m supposing that wouldn’t be allowed because, uhm, rules, CNN, MSNBC, etc.

I’m can’t wait to see what Trump has up his sleeve for the coming election cycle.

when he said that the exception to Trumps, basically, awful ways is that he has put some good people in good positions, he probably means his relatives. Isn’t it one of his nephews….not the railroad commissioner in Texas?

If you dont know the motives behind Jeb Bush then just dial up the history of Prescott Bush and George H. Walker. Treason is a natural bond in this self serving family. Remember prescotts famous quote deny deny deny.

Pathetic loser Jeb is a liberal, an open borders proponent who probably is more than a little influenced by his hispanic wife and in-laws. By contrast, all the Hispanics I know, all of whom I adore, are conservatives responsible, and very patriotic to our United States. I can’t imagine better people. Jeb probably got twisted by ideologues.

David Axelrod is a Chicago former NYC Leftist. How he was able to conceal his Progressive Bias and appear to be a neutral commentator for decades thanks to the Help of the MSM. He and Van Jones are the perfect Clinton equivocators on any subject at all times through their political careers. Why Jeb felt is necessary to appear with this Leftist can only substantiate the Bush / Clinton union for the Globalist Elites.
