The Madness Will Never End

Sextus Julius Caesar I was the man who killed the Roman Republic. He was not  the Julius Caesar, but he was the man who started the line that would eventually give us the Julius Caesar. In 208 BC, no one could have possibly known that a man of his line would bring down the Republic. If they did, he would have been murdered along with all of his kin. We can never know these things. You just have to hope you get lucky.

No one could have known that an eccentric school master would found a line whose men would bring about the end of the American republic.

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.

God help us.

  1. Look at her tenure at State. Nearly every photo she has a drink and a few she looks blotto. Wonder how she fell down.
    Probably self medicating to cover her guilt for all the crap she overlooked in the name of blind ambition.

  2. Really, 300000000 people in the USA and we’re so impoverished of character, integrity and leadership that the best we can do is nominate a drunken second rate hag who has enabled her rapist husband for decades and the third member of a clueless, unprincipled family.

  3. I think the Bush family, Karl Rove, and the Republican Establishment are reading the wrong tea leaves if they think Jeb has a snowball’s chance in hell at the presidency. If he wasn’t a Bush, he’d be a Democrat. There are no conditions under which I would vote for Jeb Bush. The country doesn’t need or want another Bush or another Clinton, for that matter.

  4. Bush vs Clinton 2016…. In other news the Afghanistan War is officially over and the “West” lost.
