    Jeb Bush represents the RINO/Neo-Con wing that Adelson invited to Vegas, along with Walker, Casich and Christie (as well as Cheeney/Bush-43)

    Would you vote for Jeb Bush?
    Rand Paul represents the Amash coalition going after the Speaker's job,
    the despicable Cheeney legacy and other splinter groups sick of both parties, like the young.

    Paul or Bush ?

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    I've been predicting Jeb Bush will be the next President of the United States for several years now. Had he run in 2012, he would have slaughtered Obama.

    From many of the comments posted, the low information voter is alive and doing just fine here at DP. Jeb Bush is easily the most qualified of any named candidate in either party and he has the added bonus of being an intelligent, confident, well spoken, respectful man without an ounce of overblown ego. Denying your country the obvious talents he would bring to the office simply because of his last name is just asinine.

    Once he gets reintroduced to the American public and people see him speak, watch him in the debates, listen to the reasoned approach he has to many of the troubling issues your country faces, his favourable opinion with that public can't help but grow. And when/if he matches up in the Presidential race against Hillary Clinton it will be no contest - the man is miles ahead of her.

    Doubtful.

    Also "low information voter" is fast becoming the No. 1 personal attack for conservatives to sneak past the mods when it comes to describing people they disagree with. It's getting old.

    Sorry, didn't realize it was my responsibility to entertain you or any other member - and since I didn't see a single post of yours on this thread until the above comment, I couldn't be referring to you, could I?

    I don't know if I would or wouldn't vote for Jeb Bush. I think I would take him over Rand Paul, but then it all depends whom the Democrats, Libertarians and Constitutional Parties have running.

    But you might enjoy some stuff Rasmussen polled:

    59% of GOP Voters Say Republicans in Congress Out of Touch with Party’s Base

    59% of GOP Voters Say Republicans in Congress Out of Touch with Party

    Now I am not sure what's this means. Rasmussen never goes into details. It might mean the GOP base is tired of the tea party types or it might mean they wish more of their members of congress were like the tea party. Who knows. But I thought this might interest you.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nope. That doesn't mean it's not noticed.

    On topic, I would not vote for Jeb Bush.

    Well they have other parties.....they never make the grade. But that's exactly what it is.....or they do like they did when Romney ran, and don't show up to the Polls. Which just allowed a mistake for History take place. The Republicans only have themselves to blame for Obama's 2nd term. If all would have supported Romney from the Right. Then all the bitching about Team O and the Democrats wouldn't even be taking place.

    Although.....what good comes from a Party that has to divide up the country. Knowing it is the ONLY way they can win? This has been what the Democratic Party has been about from their beginnings.

    There was a time I was definitely convinced that Jeb was the pick of the litter so to speak, and I still have little quarrel with him personally. But do I want him to be the GOP nominee? I honestly don't know CJ, but my gut tells me it would not be a good idea in the current political climate. He would be dragging the legacy of two failed (by majority perception) Bush presidencies, and I just don't see how that wouldn't be a problem for him. Emotionally, would I feel secure and confident if he were president over some of the lesser knowns who could be the candidate? Absolutely.

    And can I think of a single Democrat that the Democrats could put up that I would favor over Jeb? Nope.

    So I definitely have mixed emotions on this one. I would have bet a good steak dinner--wait, I DID bet a good steak dinner--that any Republican could beat Obama in the crappy 2012 economy. I was wrong. Anybody with a brain who is capable of critical thinking knows we would all be better off now had Romney won, but I don't have any confidence that the American public won't be just as dumbed down in 2016. And I don't know that Jeb has the charisma to overcome that.

    You'll have to choose one of the GOP Presidentials before the general.

    As for the GOP House, they are once again plotting to overthrow Boehner.
    These are the ones out of touch, like "Amash/TEAs" .

    Excellent post.

    I would say, as it relates to baggage, that Hillary Clinton will absolutely be the Democrat nominee and she has more baggage than Samsonite. No other Democrat would have a chance of winning the Presidency. I can't wait to see the Presidential debates between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.

    BTW, your governor might make for an excellent running mate for Bush.
