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.

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.

Mark the date. Sometime on Tuesday, Apr. 1, 2014, Charles H Keating Jr. became a footnote … in Sen. John McCain´s biography. No one would have predicted this, not even McCain. Especially McCain. But we were wrong. There was a time when McCain´s association with Keating looked like it would bring an end to the senator´s political career. 1989, Keating´s Lincoln Savings and Loan went belly up, putting taxpayers on the hook for $3.4 billion, or roughly $13.60 from every man, woman and child then living in the United States.

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

Is the Republican Party’s Middle East policy up for bid? For four days ending Sunday, a quartet of presidential hopefuls trooped to Las Vegas to attend the annual gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition. Impresario: Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas-Macau casino mogul whose fortune is estimated at $39 billion — 8th richest man on the planet — and who dumped $92 million into the election of 2012. Adelson kept Newt Gingrich alive with a $15 million infusion of ad money, gutting Romney, and then sank $30 million into Mitt’s campaign. This time Sheldon wants to buy himself a winner.

In the early 2016 Republican presidential sweepstakes, could former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush be the beneficiary of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s recent stumbles? That´s the question a number of analysts are starting to ask as Christie, formerly a clear favorite of the GOP establishment, starts to lose his luster, tarnished by months of critical headlines about the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal in New Jersey.

Vladimir Putin seems to have lost touch with reality, Angela Merkel reportedly told Barack Obama after speaking with the Russian president. He is “in another world.” “I agree with what Angela Merkel said … that he is in another world,” said Madeleine Albright, “It doesn’t make any sense.” John Kerry made his contribution to the bonkers theory by implying that Putin was channeling Napoleon: “You don’t just, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext.” Now that Putin has taken Crimea without firing a shot, and 95 percent of a Crimean electorate voted

Marco Rubio is smack in the middle of the current polls for the 2016 presidential primary. But he may be the early frontrunner when it comes to offering a realistic conservative agenda for reforms that address the economic challenges of modern America. And whether or not he pulls the trigger on a White House run, the U.S. senator from Florida is already helping to refashion the GOP once again into the Party of Ideas. In a series of smart domestic-policy speeches this year, Rubio has generally avoided the easy, reflexive response as to what’s gone terribly wrong with the American

What has been happening in Ukraine is not a wake-up call precisely but a tugging at the attention, a demand to focus. There´s a sense that in some new way we are watching the 21st century take its shape and express its central realities. Exactly 100 years ago, in August 1914, the facts that would shape the 20th century gathered and emerged in the Great War. History doesn´t repeat itself; you can´t, as they say, step into the same stream twice. But it does have an unseen circularity. Sept. 11 started the century and brought forward the face of terrorism.

MADISON, Wis. – Investigators in Wisconsin say a home invasion in which a man was severely beaten and his pregnant wife was repeatedly sexually assaulted stemmed from a mistake. Madison police say the attack was spurred by a neighbor´s girlfriend, who hoped to have him robbed. But the suspects instead stumbled into the wrong home in an affluent Madison neighborhood. A criminal complaint filed Tuesday says the suspects beat the man who lived there with a handgun and assaulted his wife, who was six months pregnant. Both were hospitalized. Six people have been charged in the attack. Three men face

With Vladimir Putin’s dispatch of Russian troops into Crimea, our war hawks are breathing fire. Russophobia is rampant and the op-ed pages are ablaze here. Barack Obama should tune them out, and reflect on how Cold War presidents dealt with far graver clashes with Moscow. When Red Army tank divisions crushed the Hungarian freedom fighters in 1956, killing 50,000, Eisenhower did not lift a finger. When Khrushchev built the Berlin Wall, JFK went to Berlin and gave a speech.When Warsaw Pact troops crushed the Prague Spring in 1968, LBJ did nothing. When, Moscow ordered Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski to smash Solidarity,

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
