Another possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate is emerging — a candidate that could react a very "retro" feel during the election. It was widely reported yesterday that former president George W. Bush is encouraging his brother, Jeb, to hit the campaign trail.
Clinton vs. Bush, 2016? …Lord help us.
Being the forward thinker that he is, Glenn wanted to be prepared for this scenario come election time. Once the machine (aka the GOP) destroys all of the legitimately conservative candidates — you know, the ones that would make real changes in the system — Glenn wanted to have something in the archives that would help keep him from going down the desperate "he's not that bad…" path.
Here's what you can expect to hear in three years when you're scratching your head wondering what in the heck happened to all of the good candidates:
"Glenn, it's me Glenn from the past, and this is you before the machine really turned on. And I know you're thinking right now, 'there's no way we can have Clinton win. There's no way -- I mean we can't have because it will be awful. It will be a disaster.' I know you're thinking right now 'we have to have Jeb in because Jeb is going to be able to get it done.' And I know you've had every other opportunity, and they've all fallen by wayside. You've got to vote for him because he's the candidate, and there's no other choice. Glenn, This is you from the past, don't do it. Vote for a toothbrush if you have to. Don't do it. You've been played."
"I can't imagine Jeb winning the Republican nomination," Pat said skeptically after hearing the audio.
Stu had two words for him: John McCain.
Not only will he win the nomination, Glenn began to explain, but he'll pick someone like Marco Rubio to be his running mate. A candidate we all thought was a real constitutional conservative, but kind of sold out to the party. But because Jeb is so horrible, Marco Rubio will be magical.
Who's excited to start campaigning for the guy who has been leaning the way on Common Core? …that's not the most depressing part of this, unfortunately. Stu made sure to point out that 2016 is three years away.
That's three more years of Barack Obama in the White House.
