A law which the Florida supreme court then struck down as unconstitutional.

    So I would love for Jeb Bush to explain how he's not a big government politician to a national audience of conservatives polarized by the Tea Party.

    I doubt it, since Gore was never noted as a fiscal hawk and BHO is our biggest debt builder at over $6T.

    "I have a voice, I want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the Republican party can regain its footing, because weve lost our way," former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) told Matt Lauer of NBC's "TODAY Show" on Monday.

    "I wont [rule out running] but Im not going to declare today either," Bush also said.
    I wouldn't vote for him....Unless the rep party gets back to the fundamentals, I am going to find it hard to vote for any of the current progressive/republicans.

    Maybe there would be if you had a candidate like Reagan. You guys haven't had a "Reagan" since...well, Reagan.

    We still would have had the Democrat mandated sub prime bubble, and Omnibus, Stimulus,GM bailout a shrinking econom.

    I think Romney could have been that kind of President, sans the Chicago smear machine, and lies taken as truth....Say what you will, he still would have been better than President "hands off" Obama.

    Romney wouldn't have been even close to Reagan. Just don't see it, he was as wishy-washy as John Kerry.
