Former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush has announced that he’s, “thinking about running for president” in the 2016 campaign. Casual.
On Wednesday morning he spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York where he made the statement. He also mentioned that he would decide whether or not he wanted to do it by the end of this year.
He gave the answer when he was asked what his plans for this year were. It was the first time he made a direct statement about the run for presidency. A source tells Fox News that he was then given applause and a standing ovation to which he said, “Can someone call my mother so she can hear this?”
Barbara Bush, his mother, has previously said that, “we’ve had enough Bushes.” She seemed to retract that statement when rumors swirled that Jeb running would be a possibility.
The announcement came a few hours after political consultant David Axelrod said, “I have some real doubts as to whether he’s going to run.” He also told MSNBC that “running in the Republican Party today is a hard thing to do, and I don’t think Jeb Bush wants to run for president and have to subjugate his principles like the last two nominees did.” Is Jeb Bush possibly trying to prove him wrong?
Do you think he should run or have we really had too many Bush’s in the White House?
