No. Enough with that family. Even if he's wiser than his brother, I'm sure they all have the same circle of friends and advisors (people like Dick Cheney).
Jeb is a shoe-in for the Latino vote - his wife is hispanic and they even speak Spanish as their primary tongue at home. I don't think he has totally shot himself in foot yet with his recent pathway to citizenship fumble.....No way I don't want Jeb. We need someone young and charismatic, preferably Latino. Though it kind of sucks we'll have to take one on the chin with championing a minority, we need to pander to a part of the electorate that isn't dying if we want to take the White house, which is all that matters in the end.
I predict that the President to follow Obama will be a worse disaster for this nation, with more authoritarian police state policies than you can shake a stick at. Whoever it is.
Was about to ask where the "maybe" option was, but I'm likely to continue voting third party until the GOP proves itself worthy. My default position on Jeb Bush is no.
Well I wouldn't say its an old trend, Clinton did pretty well imo.That's the trend. Everyone thought Bush was a disaster until we got Obama. Now we know what an authoritarian REALLY looks like. I can't imagine a worse president than Obama. But then again, at the time, I couldn't imagine a worse president than Bush.
How is Obama worse than Bush? Did Obama lie to the public about weapons of mass destruction in some Arab nation, resulting in a loss of thousands of American lives and probably trillions of dollars? Did Obama lower taxes on the rich?That's the trend. Everyone thought Bush was a disaster until we got Obama. Now we know what an authoritarian REALLY looks like. I can't imagine a worse president than Obama. But then again, at the time, I couldn't imagine a worse president than Bush.
I think he's smarter and his personality is a lot different than dubya's, but I also think he'd have a similar inner circle of people giving him advice. That may lead to pretty much the same outcome in the end.I think he would be totally different then dubya so who knows.
