Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said today that he'll "actively explore" a run for President in 2016.

Bush added a longer explanation of his intent on Facebook:

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!

Like many of you, our family was blessed with the opportunity to gather together over the recent Thanksgiving holiday.

Columba and I are so proud of the wonderful adults our children have become, and we loved spending time with our three precious grandchildren.

We shared good food and watched a whole lot of football.

We also talked about the future of our nation. As a result of these conversations and thoughtful consideration of the kind of strong leadership I think America needs, I have decided to actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States.

In January, I also plan to establish a Leadership PAC that will help me facilitate conversations with citizens across America to discuss the most critical challenges facing our exceptional nation. The PAC’s purpose will be to support leaders, ideas and policies that will expand opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.

In the coming months, I hope to visit with many of you and have a conversation about restoring the promise of America.

Best wishes to you and your families for a happy holiday season. I’ll be in touch soon.

Onward, Jeb Bush

At a conservative summit in New Hampshire over the weekend, human taxidermy project Donald Trump mocked former Florida governor Jeb Bush’s recent comments about illegal immigration being at its core an “act of love”

Mediaite reports:

“You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” Trump said, pausing for the chorus of booing from the audience to build. “And he was talking about people that come into this country illegally, they do it for love.”

“And I said, say it again I didn’t get — that’s one I’ve never heard before,” Trump continued, with the crowd’s boos growing louder. “I understand what he’s saying, but, you know, it’s out there.”

First Night Of The Republican National Convention Canceled

Map_specnews06_ltst_4namus_enus_650x366

Tropical Storm Isaac has put the kibosh on the first night of the RNC in Tampa, which was to have been Monday. Gov. Mike Huckabee was to speak, as were Govs. Nikki Haley and Jeb Bush. Ann Romney was originally scheduled to appear as well, but was bumped to Tuesday after the news networks decided Monday's slate of speakers wasn't worth covering. Some speakers will probably be bumped altogether, though how many, or which ones, hasn't yet been announced.

From Talking Points Memo:

The convention will convene on Monday and will immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon, [RNC chair Reince] Priebus announced in [a] statement. “After consulting with Governor [Rick] Scott, NOAA and local emergency management officials, we are optimistic that we will begin an exciting, robust convention that will nominate the Romney-Ryan ticket.”

Isaac wrought misery in the Caribbean last night, especially in Haiti, where it caused at least three deaths. As of this writing, Isaac is spinning away from the northern coast of Cuba, likely to hit the Florida Keys sometime this evening, possibly as a weak Category 1 hurricane. The Weather Channel suggests Isaac may turn into a Category 2 on Monday afternoon, but it seems unlikely to make landfall over Tampa. Tampa is, however, likely in for some very doomy weather Monday night, as well as a storm surge of up to five feet.


Jeb Bush Endorses Mitt Romney

Following Romney's win last night in Illinois, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has endorsed Mittens:

Jeb_bush"Congratulations to Governor Mitt Romney on his win last night and to all the candidates for a hard fought, thoughtful debate and primary season. Primary elections have been held in thirty-four states, and now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall. I am endorsing Mitt Romney for our Party¹s nomination. We face huge challenges, and we need a leader who understands the economy, recognizes more government regulation is not the answer, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism and works to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed."
