Jeb Bush Talks Approach If He Runs for President – NYTimes.com

I’d say this gives Hillary 0 – Jeb 1… While she’s freezing the field and being mysterious about her intentions, Jeb’s giving a straight answer with a deadline and what his main concerns and message will be. Professional and constructive.

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education.

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of a mud fight” with a “hopeful” message.

“We need to elect candidates that have a vision that is bigger and broader, and candidates that are organized around winning the election, not making a point,” Mr. Bush told an audience at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. “Campaigns ought to be about listening and learning and getting better. I do think we’ve lost our way.” He added, “I’m not being critical of my party, but campaigns themselves are reflective of this new America.”

  1. George Bush looks MUCH better these days…..
    Remarkable what time will do….
    But if you complain about the Clinton dynasty….
    You could turn around a do the same for Bush family…..

    He, he, he…
    Bill Clinton and Father Bush like father and son , eh?

    I’ve been writing that Jeb could peel off some Latino votes

    Also someone I read says Bush’s Immigration policy is NO different than Rubio?
    Ouch!

    270 IS gonna be award number for the GOPer’s Yup!

    Christie’s in deep ……

    Even if he polls above 50% in Jersey
    When the stuff come down he’ll be radioactive politically

    • Maybe Jeb could associate himself more with Father Bush… that would help for the name thing probably…
      And it would be interesting primary debates.. Jeb vs. Paul, Cruz, Christie, others… he’ll probably be boooed but folks at home might like him….

      But is Jeb good for the political climate and for American politics? I’d say absolutely yes… he’s reasonable, warm and moderate..
      Being in Italy at the moment one could say that it also helps the US standing internationally, to have at least some sense and voice of reason in the extreme, hateful and corrupt right wing politics….
