Former Florida Governor Doesn't Rule Out Run in 2016

Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush isn't
ruling out a possible presidential run in 2016.

Bush, who was attending the inauguration Tuesday of new Gov.
Rick Scott, repeated his stance that he's positively not running
for president in 2012. When asked about 2016, Bush said he would
never say never, but reiterated that 2012 is out.

Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and younger
brother of former President George W. Bush, received the loudest
ovation from a predominantly Republican audience when introduced at
the inaugural.

Jeb Bush was Florida's governor from 1999 to 2007. He has
remained in the private sector since leaving office and been highly
visible on behalf of Republican causes nationally.

    Anyone but Obummer. Bring on Jeb. Personally I believe that Rick Scott will be running in the 2012 election, but that has yet to be seen. I don't think he will stay his full 4 years as governor.

    With his removal of the flags from our state capital? Not on my watch and not with my vote he wont. "Deo Vindice." ~ Beside that we've had enough of the Bush's period.

    Don't forget the other Bush criminal - the Silverado Savings and Loan robbery. Silverado Savings and Loan collapsed in 1988, costing taxpayers $1.3 billion. Neil Bush, son of then Vice President of the United States George H. W. Bush. I've had enough of the Bush crowd. They kill our sons in useless wars, they talk about the new world order, and they dismantle Florida and send our work to other States. No more Bushes.

    Hmm, this seems familar. Didnt his Dad and brother do the same thing,Waited for someone to do a decent job and clean up the previous president mess then, a "Bush" comes along and shoot it to hell for another 8yrs. How many of these guys are there, when can we rest assured that we won't be screwed by another Bush. Why can't he be satisfied with screwing Florida over and just go back to their ranch in Texas somewhere and have a drink with the kids and chill out.

    Can't the people have some decent candidates for a change. Tell the Bushes and the Clintons and the Frists and all the rest to move on to China or Russia or Venezuela (I saw Hillary yucking it up with Chevez, yes I did! and bowing in the Muslum way). Let them move to whereever their love for socialism lives. And get the heck out of America.

    Oh please dear God, no - as if many citizens of Florida didn`t suffer enough when he was Governor. Please someone change his mind and convince him to spend his time working for a non-profit or how about a community organization to help keep young offenders out of jail.
