    Jeb Bush has plenty of guilt on his own. A large share of his wealth came by stealing from the government, ie taking loans, pocketing the money and then making a deal to repay 10 cents on the dollars. He is heavily into the "Miami mafia" and many of his business associates have been convicted of racketeering, fraud, real estate scams and criminal ponzy schemes. He is as corrupt as it gets.

    I remember when newspapers printed news. This reads like an opinion piece.

    Romney pulls twice the numbers of Bush. But the media wants a Bush-Clinton contest - as the left can't lose either way and Bush as a candidate helps Clinton.

    BUT Bush's people are pushing him like crazy - got the money and inside contacts to do so - and the SHEEPLE go right along with it.

    THE FACT IS THAT JEB BUSH is NOT #1 in polls that consider all potential candidates. He is a distance second place to Romney.
    My post is the latest CNN poll and that is the most recent poll that has been taken. Moreover, some of Bush's rise in the polls may well be on account of his having taken a big step toward seeking office. Governor Romney, should he make a similar move, might also benefit from taking such a step. In any case, the link is available and the numbers are what they are. We'll see what other polls say in coming weeks and whether Bush is able to sustain the edge the CNN poll shows. My guess is that unless Bush is highly visible on a sustained basis, some of the margin in the CNN poll will narrow.

    As also noted in my post, much can change between now and the start of the primary season. Whether Governor Romney runs again is also uncertain at this point in time. If he does, I also suspect that he would have perhaps the strongest chance of winning the nomination, but that's speculative at this point in time.

    Romney will stay out if Jeb gets in.

    But none of that is why the OP is rejecting him.

    If all that is true it will all come out when he declares and it will be interesting to see it all.

    he could be the perfect guy for the job, however, something needs to be said about the nepotism plaguing the office and politics.


    what makes you think this bush will be any different?
