Part II - Bush family and the making of a future president

                     Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush in Tampa before giving speech on August 30, 2012:

"As a candidate and Governor, I visited over 400 schools. I saw children read their first sentences. Solve their first long-division problems. Explore the miracles of chemistry and physics. That's the essence of educationstudents getting a chance at a future. There are many reasons to believe America's future is bright, but also reasons to worry. Of 34 advanced nations in the world, American students rank 17th in science, 25th in math. Only one-fourth of high school graduates are ready for their next steps. China and India produce eight times more engineering students each year than the United States," Bush said.

Newscast Media HOUSTON, TexasAs Hillary Clinton prepares to hand in her resignation to the Obama administration, the Democrats are already embracing the idea of "Hillary For President" in 2016.  Liberal Web site POLITICO is already speculating that she will possibly run against none other than Jeb Bush.(pop-up)


Furthermore, Business Insider conducted a poll about four days ago that shows Jeb Bush leading over Marco Rubio as a Florida favorite.  This seems to be a way of preparing us perhaps for a Bush-Rubio ticket in 2016. (pop-up)  


These innuendos are not accidental.  They are methodically dispensed. Bush enjoys the benefit of having a household name, but also has a strong track record as governor of Florida.  He is also married to a Mexican native, which also helps with the Hispanic vote just as it helped him with the Cuban vote in Florida. Most of all, he has the most formidable political machinethe Bush machine, that can help him lay the ground work for an electrifying presidential campaign in 2016.


While some Conservatives view Bush as a moderate, they have produced no alternative. Someone who not only can raise funds, but also defeat the Liberal machine in a 2016 general that could be highly contested.


Bush is also a grassroots guy and has said, "Remember this: Our future as a nation is at stake. Fact is, this election is not about just one office. It is about one nation. If we want to continue to be the greatest nation on the planet, we must give our kids what we promise them: An equal opportunity. That starts in the classroom...it starts in our communities... it starts where you live."


Most importantly, his brother George W. Bush is itching to see him run for president and has publicly said he thinks Jeb would make a great president.


On restoring America's greatest Jeb Bush said, "That starts with a strong economy, a smart energy policy, lower deficits, and a president who puts America's workers and job-creators first."


On education Bush says, "There is a moral cost to our failing schools. That failure is the great moral and economic issue of our time. And it's hurting all of America. I believe we can meet this challenge. We need to set high standards for students and teachers and provide students and their parents the choices they deserve. The first step is a simple one. We must stop pre-judging children based on their race, ethnicity or household income. We must stop excusing failure in our schools and start rewarding improvement and success. We must have high academic standards that are benchmarked to the best in the world. All kids can learn."
