2012 presidential elections

Updated on August 28, 2011


In this hub I would like to make a prediction that few pundits have. I predict the presidential election will be between JEB and Barack Obama. I know this is a bold prediction because JEB has denied he is running but don't all the presidential candidates do that?

Have I had too much coffee today? Well perhaps or perhaps I am on the money.

Republican Candidate

Who do you think will receive the Republican Nomination?

Barack Obama

 I have to say as a Republican I like Barack Obama.  But my Independent side would like to see someone who really represents the average person and didn't have a Daddy and a brother that was President or was born with a silver spoon in their mouth.  Blue color isn't so blue once your are inside the belt way. 


The Independent Vote

For me, I think the most influential vote in Florida will be the Independent vote.

I would like to see an Independent Candidate from outside the beltway. To me, the Tea Party is just a succession of the Right Wing Republican evangelicals and not a true Independent move.

It is funny to me how politically savvy Florida has become over the last decade. Hunger, unemployment and homelessness will do that to a state. And Floridans have the fundamental justifiable right to expect to live well and be represented well and that hasn't happened in over a decade. All of us have suffered through these terrible times and the obituaries just keep growing in this community. We have a shared ordeal and an obligation to make certain the next "would be" president of the United States hear our message clear. We, Floridians, expect and deserve to be treated well.

We vote for Floridans..

I love to hear your theories.

As theories go this one might seem a little far fetched but I would love to hear you ideas as well.

      He is going to have to move quickly. He is running out of time. He will have to announce rather fast for 2012 and 2016 really isn't a possibility for him. He will be too far away from leadership.

      I'm reading about Jeb, and I guess he could surprise everyone and run in 2012, but it looks like he's leaning toward 2016 instead. Guess we'll find out. :-)

      It's highly-UNLIKELY that there will be another Bush in office any time soon. Jeb - Haa Haa.
