Conservative commentator Ann Coulter predicted on Sunday that Jeb Bush was throwing his hat into the ring in hopes of being chosen the Republican nominee, but had harsh criticism for that prospect.
“It looks like we can throw Jeb Bush’s hat into the ring, along with Sarah Palin, as hoping to be chosen as the nominee after a contested convention,” Coulter said on “Fox News Sunday.”.
Coulter was reacting to comments Bush made earlier on in the week, when he said that the Republican presidential candidates are “appealing to people’s fears.”
The conservative author, who is supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, said that a Jeb Bush candidacy would be a disaster.
“I think on closer examination, Jeb Bush would be the worst of all candidates to run, for one thing,” said Coulter. “We don’t need another Bush. That would be embarrassing to the Republican Party.”
