Guess it isn’t all that much of a surprise, although its nice to get the formal announcement that Jeb Bush is indeed running for President in 2016. Aren’t we still a solid 17 months away from the election? This is getting a little ridiculous, not just that we have the Bush dynasty thinking that it knows what’s best for the public, but also that the campaigning starts, seriously, with this much time to go? Personally, Jeb’s probably not such a bad guy and if you’ve lived in Miami, South Miami and The Gables really you’ve probably at least bumped into him a few times here and there. Not exactly sure if he’s Presidential material, but I guess we’re all going to find out soon enough.
Marco Rubio was our first Florida guy to announce his run for President back in April, so Mr. Bush is a little late to the game, trailing the young whippersnapper by a few months, that being said I think we would all welcome someone with at least a little more experience both in the political world and a little more life experience.
This should also give us some adequate content and lots of room to poke a little fun at the guy. We wish him the very best, make Florida proud.
