PJ Media's Simon to Jeb: Do Best Thing for the GOP, Skip 2016

Wednesday, 27 May 2015 06:50 PM

Jeb Bush can easily help Republicans "save" the nation from a Hillary Clinton presidency by announcing he won't follow in his brother's and father's footsteps and be the third Bush to seek the White House, award-winning novelist and screenwriter Roger Simon tells Newsmax TV.

"As we all know, Barbara Bush not so long ago said, 'enough with these Bushes and Clintons, we've had enough of them.' But, then Jeb decided that wasn't true and Barbara rescinded," Simon, co-founder of the conservative opinion website PJ Media, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"Now we have Hillary about to be anointed as the Democratic nominee despite the fact that she's a congenital liar, has erased emails.... Who is better positioned to make the case against this by withdrawing and saying, no more Bushes and Clintons?

"He would be being a patriot, he would be doing something for America. He would get tremendous coverage for this, everybody would love him and he'd be a hero."

Simon said he believes the former Florida governor will not be able to win the GOP nomination as his father George H.W. Bush and brother George W. Bush did.

"[That's] because the rank and file don't want any more Bushes, either. So it's over for him and he could do the right thing. This would really help the country. But we're waiting."

Simon, who wrote the acclaimed Moses Wine mystery novels and the screenplay for the R-rated Richard Pryor comedy, "Bustin' Loose" — is also concerned about the growing list of declared and undeclared GOP presidential candidates and how they'll be accommodated in a debate.

And he's come up with an amusing solution.

"I suggest they emulate 'The Voice' and have 'The Republican Voice' with four coaches," Simon quipped, referring to the smash NBC show in which singers from across the country compete with the help of music legends Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

"[There would be] Newt Gingrich, if he promises not to run, of course, and Bill Clinton, [because] although he's a Democrat, he's a good speechmaker and he knows more about fundraising than anybody, he could advise everybody.

"Then Charlize Theron and Kim Kardashian. Theron would have to promise not to speak to Sean Penn about this, otherwise she's out and replaced by Bruce Jenner. But Kim Kardashian — we know every television show needs a Kardashian, otherwise it can't be on the air. So there we have it. We would eliminate the candidates as they go and finally be down to the last two."
