Exclusive: Jeb Bush Begins To Lay Out Case For President


In an exclusive sit-down interview with The Brody File, Jeb Bush began to sketch out his case for President of the United States if he decides to run next year. “It will be based on my record. And that record was one of solving problems from completely from a conservative perspective.  I cut taxes every year, I shrunk the size of government,” Jeb Bush tells The Brody File. And as for his critics who say he’s too mainstream establishment he offers this: “I will be able to, I think, manage my way through all the chirpers out there.”

We sat down with Jeb Bush Friday morning at the Faith and Freedom Coalition event in DC. If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he will most likely be considered the frontrunner for the GOP nomination.

The full story on Jeb Bush airs Monday on The 700 Club.

David Brody: "I am going to be the only person that ever doesn't ask you about 2016.  I'm not, going to ask you that because everybody does. I am curious though about... (BUSH laugh and says, "You are going to get to that question.") I do have a question though about some of the critics who say, 'If someone like Jeb Bush did run, that he would be this mainstream Republican candidate who wouldn't appeal to the base of the party. You hear, you read, it's on the internet, it's got to be true!  I mean, what do you say to those critics that say, 'Hey wait that's too mainstream.'"

Jeb Bush: "Look, if I decide to run for office again, it will be based on what I believe and it will be based on my record.  And that record was one of solving problems completely from a conservative perspective.  I cut taxes every year, I shrunk the size of government, we reformed the things that were broken. Our Medicaid program was broken, we reformed it. Our education system was a complete disaster, we created a great business climate that made Florida a place to do business and for families to prosper.  I acted on my core beliefs on social issues as governor.  I will be able to, I think, manage my way through all the chirpers out there."

I am an independent. In a divided country, we i n the middle decide elections. I want less... Less spending, less war, less government. Perhaps Jeb does too. I might vote for him. I will not vote for anyone who wants to to spend more on anything, including defense. Do Republicans want my vote?

George Bush I took control of the GOP in 1989, and decided to run son Jeb for President. Bush II was GW instead, but daddy Bush didn't change his plans. The Bushes are determined to make Jeb President, and as rulers of the GOP they can nominate him in 2016.

Like his dad and GW, Jeb Bush is a Rockefeller Republican, not a conservative. He will carry out the program of Bush I and II: more free trade agreements and jobs lost to China, a bigger federal government, more federal control of education, more debt, and more "world policing" wars. That is the Bush agenda, as well as Obama's.

Jeb was Governor of Florida before the economic meltdown caused by Clinton and Bush II stopped the "boom". While he was Governor, Florida was rolling in money, so he could cut taxes, make some "economies" in spending, and look real fiscally responsible.

The only thing "Right Wing" about Bush III is his support from radical theocrats seeking a government by "God's Word". He's using them.

Never!!!
