Jeb for President? Part II

Nel of Nel’s New Day has done several blogs on the 2016 presidential candidates. Most of them have been about the GOP candidates (might that be because the “Grand Old Party” seems to be having a free-for-all?).

Jeb Bush merited three days of her blogging. I reblogged the first one earlier today. Here is the second one. e is the And finally, here is the third one.

Nel's New Day

king bushJeb Bush’s plan for the half of 2015: raise tens of millions of dollars, separate himself from his brother’s presidency, win conservatives, and become the Republican who will win the GOP nomination. Thus far, he’s raised the money. Asked about his brother, he waffles between supporting him and trying to find a way to please people who disagree with George W. Bush’s Iraq War. Conservatives still don’t like him, and he has appeared incompetent through answers to questions and consistent flip-flopping.

Last week he changed his campaign manager to the more negative and conservative Danny Diaz, meaning that Bush may have reconsidered whether he’ll still campaign “joyfully.” Diaz’s participation in Bush II’s campaign is another connection between Jeb and Dubya.

Jeb for President? Part I

Once again, thanks Nel for blogging on the full spectrum of presidential candidates. I have been traveling since June 14 and am just now getting back to reading my favorite blogs. As I promised on June 13, I am now catching up on the plethora of presidential candidates that have officially announced their candidacy since June 14. I agreed to reblog Nel’s presidential candidate series. As of today, several more Republican candidates have announced their candidacies since June 14l Of these new candidates, Nel has blogged about four of them. In order of their announcements, they are GOP #10 Jeb Bush (June 14), GOP #12 Donald Trump (June 18), GOP #13 Bobby Jindal (June 24), and GOP #14 Chris Christie (June 30).

Jeb Bush merited three days of blogging. Here is the first one.   You can view the second posting here and the third posting here.

Millions of dollars later and on the verge, some people say over the edge, of breaking the law in his campaigning, he’s a bona fide candidate. Here’s what the United States would get with Bush III, as he explains his positions in an opportunistic, passive-aggressive way.
