Bush's Balls

Jeb ‘The Smart One’ Bush Gladdens Democrat Hearts With Vague ‘Maybe’ To Veep Question

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

The smart oneWest Palm Beach, Fla – Y’all ready to see if George H.W. Bush’s testes can ruin the world (again)? Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says he might prove it by considering a shot at the veep spot, if asked nicely by Willard. But he doesn’t think Willard likes him that way. That’s ok, because even though Jeb would consider it, he doesn’t know if it would be the right thing. That’s how them Bushies think.

Jeb’s mental prowess has allowed him to answer the difficult questions only a potential commander-in-chief can fulfill. At almost light speed and spot-on precision, he told America, “I would consider it” then, shortly after, “I am not going to be the veep nominee. Lay that to rest.” Then, he laid it all out for America when he ended the day with, “I guess I wasn’t clear enough.”

The Bush family knows a thing or two about thug life. Jeb is just one member of the Bush Brigade and has already shown Florida what a gangster governor can do. Jeb has always been the smart one, Dubya the special one and Neil the scud. There are other Bushies out there, but they’re busy doing other things.

Strategery runs deep in the Bush family and Jeb used his Floridian Geriatric Mindlock by endorsing other people for the role. He touted the qualifications of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida for the second spot on the ticket. A Romnubio duo would play out rather well in Jeb’s mind, but that won’t stop Jeb from competing against him if he is asked to be considered as veep. Also being empowered with Floridian Geriatric Mindlock superpowers, Rubio fired back with his own statement.

“If in four, five, six, seven years from now, if I do a good job as vice president — I’m sorry, as senator — I’ll have the chance to do all sorts of things.”

Jeb is playing it smart and alluding to being interested in the veep seat while also making comments about not being interested in the veep seat. Willard uses a very similar strategy and the two may a formidable dynamic duo that will lead America into a new era of ‘uhhhh’. Jeb’s poker face is leaving this whole thing a mystery for now, but Twitter has captured a wealth of information leading to a definitive answer of ‘Yes he is not going to be interested in saying no.’

The Spanish translation of his recent dialogue with America can be read in next month’s article of ‘¿Qué dijo él?’ Magazine. [HuffPo]

    • BarackMyWorld

      Was Jeb involved in that too? I thought it was just Neil.

      • flamingpdog

        Just Neil, unless Jebby was a silent partner. Neil didn't say much, either – he was just there on the Board of Directors to keep the other thugs outta jail. The former Silverado Building is just down the street from where I work. It was still the Silverado Building for a number of years after the scandal broke before they finally took the sign off the top of the high-rise office building.

        When George H. W. was VP & then President, there was a crazy old lady in my hometown who claimed she was one of his aunts. She was a massive hoarder & she'd throw all her trash in her backyard. When she died they found an altar to Ronnie Reagan in her living room (it had a poster of Reagan surrounded by pictures of Jesus & angels). There were candles on both sides of it that thankfully had never been lit. Otherwise, I'm sure the whole place would have went up in flames due to all the stacks of newspapers & other crap.
        After W's reign, I've often thought that maybe she was related to George the First.

        While he is incredibly stupid, and thus perfect for the role, I think that Mittens is still smarting from the "I'm not a betting man" during the debates.

  • Barb

    According to Florida voting machines, he's already won.

    • flamingpdog

      He's doesn't have Katie Harris around to help him anymore. Not sure which self-destructed first, her brain or her boobs.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        Whatever happened to Harris after her failed Senate run? Is she now holed up in her house in some gated FL community listening to the voice of God?

        • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

          Yes, in a $3.9-million, 23,600 square-foot waterfront home on Bay Point Drive in Sarasota (which she claims needs to be renovated). When she is not attending something called Calvary Chapel in Sarasota (she rejected the Presbyterian Church of her quite religious childhood as "too liberal), Kitty is reportedly still be deposed in various lawsuits dating back to her "service" to her country.

    Seriously though, is Jeb, Paul Ryan, or Rubio the most toxic (non-Palin) pick that people have seriously suggested?

    • BarackMyWorld

      On a scale of super-toxic to very toxic:
      1. Jeb
      2. Ryan
      3. Rubio

        Three-way tie for 4. Chris Christie.

          He seems pretty non-interested in it. Especially after someone told him it would involve a small degree of physical effort.

    Having a Bush in DC is like Caddyshack movies, they should have stopped at one.

    • Radiotherapy

      The funny thing is that the wingtards HATED Bush Sr. What with his tax hikes and peace dividend and compassion. You think they would have stopped at one, I guess it shows how malleable and lame Dubya was that he wasn't purged along with daddy.

    • ttommyunger

      NO SHIT! unwatchable.

  • bumfug

    Jeb's slogan: "Because We Think You're Just That Fucking Dumb".

  • SayItWithWookies

    Oh, a brother of Dubya would just be a dream VP candidate. None of my other dream selections — Sarah Palin again, Jack Abramoff, Darrell Issa, Tom Delay, Michele Bachmann, Dick Cheney, James Inhofe — are even the least bit credible as possibilities, so Jeb would be a treat.

    Actually, Mitt might pick Bachmann, which would be pretty awesome all by itself. I'd love to see hard-hitting journalist Sarah Palin do an interview with Bachmann that Michele complained about containing too many gotcha questions.

    • EtchySketchy

      My favoritest fantasy VP pick: Walnuts McCain.

      • SockBunny

        That's a great fantasy. May I share?

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      Ooh, ooh…how about Allen West? I'm sure he'd get the blah vote.

  • EtchySketchy

    Hurry up and make a choice, Mitt. Cheney needs to know which soul to possess.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      Mitt cannot not posses people's souls. As a Sucker of Satan's Cock, he can only collect them for the Dark One.

  • BarackMyWorld

    You know, technically their dad is eligible, since he only got one term.

    I also like how the beltway in-crowd keeps bringing up Rob Portman and Mitch Daniels, as if either weren't also Bush cronies.

    • flamingpdog

      Techniclly, brother Dubya is eligible, too, also, since he was only elected once.

    • http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/39308_Breitbarts_Fans_Spew_Racism_Call_for_President_Obama_t glamourdammerung

      The funny thing with Portman is that I am not aware of any suggesting that they supported him. So there is all this "serious talk" about Portman from some random anonymous person it seems.

      • Negropolis

        Portman is a media choice. I notice Chuck Todd the other day interviewing the guy and pushing the "is he/or isn't he" in consideration bullshit. They do this every cycl with some no-name "moderate" Senator, and it's almost always Senators, these days.

  • not that Dewey

    Jeb is an acronym. Does "John Bush" have any marketing potential? Let's get Lunz on that right now.

    • Negropolis

      Yeah, no kidding. I've always that if he came back, they'd be pushing him as "John Ellis" to make him seem new-like. There is no way he's going to go in as "Jeb." "Dubya" killed any chance of any Bush running with a nickname for this generation of Bushes.

  • Toomush_Infer

    John Bush is just his stage name…..

    • horsedreamer_1

      Anthrax Libel!!!

  • Beowoof

    Smart and evil or stupid and evil, either way with a Bush in government you can count on evil.

  • fartknocker

    Jeb is a major advocate of privatizing public schools and relying on internet-based education, which has be found to be less than stellar:

    Jeb also passed Florida's "Terri Law," which allowed the State to intervene in all future cases similar to Terri Schivo.

    Jeb was born in Midland, Texas so he drank the same water that his brother W drank. There is something in the water in Midland that makes people very conservative, God fearing, and not very open to science or reality. This should work well for the American electorate.

    • Sparky McGruff

      Maybe you could blame it on the petrochemical waste in the water, or the liter of Gin that Mama Babs drank every day when she was pregnant. But whatever the case, it seems pretty clear that something didn't go together right when their brains were being formed.

    • Negropolis

      You'd think they'd be more open to science and reality since the entire town is built on the transformation of old dinosaur bones into fuel.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Jeb is to the Bushes as Jethro Bodine was to the Clampettes.

    Milburne Drysdale: I'm president of a bank.
    Jethro: Wow, can I be president of a bank too?
    Jed Clampett: Jethro that was a mighty disrespectful thing to say to Mr. Drysdale. Ask if you can be vice president.

    No way could Jeb have all the daddy issues and dry drunk persona of his brother. He'd just be a common GOP hack.
