George P. Bush says dad 'moving forward' on 2016


Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is "moving forward" on a potential 2016 White House run and it appears more likely he will enter the Republican field, according to his son, who's running for office in Texas.

George P. Bush told ABC's "This Week" that his father is "still assessing" a presidential bid, but suggested it was more likely that he would seek the White House this time. The ex-governor declined to run for president in 2012 despite encouragement from Republicans.

"I think it's more than likely that he's giving this a serious thought and moving and moving forward," said the younger Bush, who is running for Texas land commissioner.

Asked if that meant it was "more than likely that he'll run," George P. Bush responded: "That he'll run. If you had asked me a few years back ... I would have said it was less likely."

Jeb Bush, the brother of former President George W. Bush and the son of former President George H.W. Bush, would stand out in what could be a crowded Republican field in 2016.

Bush has headlined fundraisers for Republican candidates and committees and helped campaigns for governor in Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada, three of the first four states to hold early presidential primaries.

Family considerations could play a factor in his decision.

In an interview with The Associated Press this month, Jeb Bush said his wife, Columba, is "supportive" of a potential presidential campaign and his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush, was now "neutral, trending in a different direction." Barbara Bush declared last year there had been "enough Bushes" in the White House.

"But that doesn't mean that I don't understand the challenges that this brings," Jeb Bush told the AP. "This is ultimately my decision with as much consideration as I can to take into account the people that I really love."

George P. Bush, in the interview aired Sunday, said his family would be "100 percent" behind his father if he decides to run.

Is there any real difference between Jeb and Obama or Bush Jr.?

All one has to do is draw the inferences of Jeb being same ol' same ol', just part of the establishment that have contributed to decades of problems.. it will be easy to dismantle him.... same wars, same open borders, same fed reserve, same nsa, same patriot act, same ndaa, same cronyism... jeb is just more of the same... keeping the corruption in the family.

A lot of Republicans see Jeb as a democrat. His record in Florida speaks for itself. If the GOP pushes this guy it's a really good indication that the neocons are still in charge of the party. In which case why bother supporting them?

lol... 320 Million Americans in this country, yet the Power Elite can only stick with these two corrupt devious families for presidency of the United States?
Count on the rigged US media to continue putting the charlatans up on a pedestal for dumb-down 'Merica. These Clinton and Bush families are the scourge of America as they partner with the Money Masters in raping the country and people's wealth.
