Jeb Bush Favored Over Marco Rubio
for President, According to Poll

Broward Palm Beach New Times, by Chris Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 11/13/2012 3:25:44 PM

The election was literally six days ago (well, OK, two days ago if you count Florida), and Florida Republicans are butthurt about the results. So the fine folks at Public Policy Polling thought it would be a neat idea to exploit that GOPer melancholy and the infinite sadness and ask them to look four years into the future and tell everyone who will be president. The PPP found that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush leads Marco Rubio 28 percent to 22 percent as to who will definitely, without a doubt, for sure is going to be the next president

Comments:
Favored by who? the Bush family. Really, who would poll-test this ridiculous idea?

ALL the Bushes are members of the Ruling Elite. They all know better than we do how we should live our lives. Please God, make them go away.

No more Bushes please. The left would have a field day. I thank 41 and 44 for their valued service, but enough is enough. This is not a monarchy - so not more Bush, Clinton, or Obama´s. Let´s move ahead (notice I did not say "forward" or "on" too!)

Get real. Bush´s loose spending policies and inept handling of Iraq gave us this mess. His brother would be no better. Plus with a Bush name he would automatically be portrayed as the next generation of evil incarnate.

This is a totally stupid and losing prospect.

C´mon folks. Jeb Bush was a very popular and successful governor of one of our biggest states (Florida). We could do much worse (i.e., ANY Democrat). I cannot understand why some self-proclaimed conservatives are afflicted with the same hatred for the Bush family as the Bush-Derangement-Syndrome-addled left wingers who plotted and succeeded in undermining both GHW.´s and GW´s presidencies. Anyone with a lick of good sense knows that the country would have been far better off under these men than their successors (Clinton and Obama). We are in real trouble now, so I have lost all patience with anti-Bush zealots and their continual complaining.

It´s so sad that those of us who ROTFLOL at such a phony poll must qualify ourselves first by saying yes, the Bushes are nice, yes they are classy. However, no way ever will most conservatives (of any color) vote for another globalist disguised as a conservative. The GOP likes dynasties as long as it is a Bush not a Kennedy. Some act as though the R party is the rightful personal employment agency/ playground of the Bush family and their hangers-on.

It doesn´t really matter.

The USA died on 11-6-2012. All that is left is for the corpse to implode under the weight of it´s rotting carcas.

That should occur within weeks of NØbama granting blanket amnesty and citizenship to 20,000,000 illegal aliens.

Whatever banana republic is left will be a one-party (Demon-RAT socialist). It will make Cuba look like a paradise. There will be no more US presidential elections, so all this guessing is just folly...

The number of ingrates and know nothings on this thread is startling. Any of the trolls remember the remarable way that GW handled the bombing of the twin towers, the iran fool that killed our men, Katrina? IF anyone of them had a memory they would remember that the dims took over the senate and old reid saw to it that things went his way plus a few dumb pubbies that believed reid. I will take GW, his Dad or his brother over any other candidate - if they run.

There is no way in H*ll that Rino Jeb Bush will ever be President.

Maybe his kid George Presott Bush could get elected in about 20 years if he gets elected to some political offices first. He looks like JFK Jr.

If we are ever looking for style over substance G.P. Bush, like Obama, is your man.

Jeb Bush was more conservative than GWB, but seems to have changed.
Rubio may or may not have a tax issue(was originally brought up during his senate run). Plus he may have a naturalization issue (at least for republicans).

But haveing said that, the polls also had Crist way ahead of Rubio and look what
happened.

GWB is one of my heroes; even though I didn´t like several of his policies, I knew he was a patriot and a man of honor, which is more than we can say for BO. I believe W got a lot of things right and we were lucky to have him.

That said, I think the Bush name is going to be politically toxic for years to come; we need to look for new leadership among the next generation of conservatives, those who can articulate our principles to the ones who need to hear them: The not-yet-but-soon-to-be converts who are still politically confused. Marco Rubio is one of several young guns who can do that job quite well.

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary. My sweetest dream for 2016 would be for a bipartisan pact: that 2016 will not be a sequel to the 1992 Bush-Clinton faceoff. Is it a deal, Dems? I won´t vote for Bush if you

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying. This speech recalls last December’s address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
