    I could support Cruz. Honestly, his voice annoys me. I do like his confrontational attitude with democrats though. It's sorely needed. I look forward to a day when compromise doesn't mean "give the democrats 90% of what they want and call it a victory".

    I can't help but notice that Rubio's appeal certainly seems to have waned, at least on this forum.

    Thanks for that reminder. Hell, don't even know if they live in the US anymore. The point was to choose a Hollywood conservative who knows firsthand about popularity and advertising themselves.

    I suffer from a bit of Bush fatigue, but if he got elected president, I would have so much fun watching the democrats go bonkers about it.

    At least you won't need a recount in Florida for this Bush, but a recount in Illinois would be fun.

    I really don't have a problem with either Christie or Bush compared to the alternatives in the GOP..

    I had hoped he'd run in 2012 - I think he would have won, had he entered the race.
    If states do not change their current GOP primary rules, Christie is a shoe-in..

    Amnesty for 20 million illegal immigrants is a hard pill to swallow. I can understand the reasons for it, but they don't outweigh the reasons not to do it.

    If GW Bush couldn't get agreement from a majority of Republicans for border security and immigration reform, it's hard to imagine someone like Rubio or Obama being able to succeed. GWB was uniquely qualified, experienced and placed to get it done, but there just wasn't sufficient will in the majority of the country to do it - I believe that's still the case.
