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.
    jeb only has two problems to overcome as a national candidate
    his last name is bush
    and he is from the GOP

    with adequate PR he may have the opportunity to get past both of those barriers
    but he needs to start soon, to convince joe public that he will be a much better president than his brother and that he is not mired in the backward social positions of the republican party

    i still think condi, as a black woman, would have a better shot at the white house
    and would probably make a better prez

    Interesting tactic; manifest contempt to deflect and disguise reality.

    Just so you'll know, the people in this video are low information voters, in other words, the uninformed and misinformed.

    They also, self-admittedly, get their information from liberal media, even thought they probably don't know what liberal media is.

    I'm sure Jeb Bush would provide plenty of pertinent information for these voters to make an informed decision about his candidacy if he runs, it just won't be provided by CNN, MSNBC, CBS, the NY Times, or the Washington Post.

    That's stupendous. And also ridiculously cherry-picked.

    Walk around with camera, find people with stupid answers, edit out the people who know what they're talking about, put video on Youtube, ?????, profit.

    Stuff like that is about as convincing as "Jaywalking" on the Tonight Show. Topped off with more of the usual right-wing crying about how the mean old librul media is out to get you.

    As expected, nothing germane, just denial and whining.

    Nothing germane? Really? So you really think if you lined up, say, 100 Obama voters they'd all sound as uninformed as those folks?

    Hyperpartisan nonsense claims another victim. Perhaps we'll start cherry-picking every stupid thing a Republican says and painting all conservatives with that brush, since you seem to like it so much.

    I don't know that Condi would be more competent than Jeb. He has a track record as administrator and leader--she is relatively untested in that regard. But she's smart, competent, a woman of principle, and would likely figure it all out. But as a black, conservative woman, she would be absolutely brutalized by the Left, by the MSM, by her opponents. Just look at any other 'uppity' conservative minority or female who rises to the top in the GOP or who aspires to higher office. That is the unforgivable sin and it is always an all out assault from the Left to destroy them.

    Oh, give me a break. This idea that conservative minorities and women get it worse from "the left," or the implication that "the right" isn't equally as nasty with liberals of all stripes, is sheer nonsense. It's just another right-wing myth that is thoroughly divorced from reality.

    In the Republican primary? No.

    General election? Yes - although, I'd have to hold my nose....

    Like I stated before, denial. You still deny there are low information voters. Just because you deny it doesn't make it so, no matter how much you blather about it.

    Partisan? That's funny. You're as partisan as they come.

    You're "yell, scream, bang on the computer desk," and point your finger and state "look over there" game doesn't work. Actually, its rather boring.

    No I didn't. I never denied that there are "low-information voters." Another lie from However-The-Hell-You-Pronounce-That.

    Of course there are "low-information voters," on both sides of the aisle. However, it's become the insult du jour around here for conservative posters to accuse liberals, exclusively, of all being "low-information voters." That's what I was pointing out, and you responded with a cherry-picked video of Obama supporters saying stupid things. The clear implication being ALL Obama supporters (or liberals, or Democrats, or whoever) are "low-information voters."
