    I am absolutely positive Jeb Bush could not possibly be a worse president than Hillary.

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    Wouldn't vote for him at all.

    I'm totally done with milquetoast "compassionate conservative" Republicans. I want a smaller government with MUCH less consolidated power and Bush isn't going to provide that. Neither is Christie or Ryan.

    As far as I'm concerned the Federal government is totally out of control and has become more a hindrance to this nation than a help. We need to pass more power back to the states and the people of the states. To that end the most important elections are the state and local elections as well as the elections for congress.

    If you voted against the Clinton dynasty, you'd just be voting for the Bush dynasty.

    More concern to me are the two current hottest "wars" in the GOP, Immigration and Cheney/Paul .

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    Jeb running for national office will have a massive challenge with finding a post Bush voice in the GOP. I think he will have obstacles in trying to separate himself from his brother, without offending his brother or inviting him to the RNC, not wanting his endorsement, etc. Big time family drama.

    If he can pull it all off, it will be amazing, but comics will poke fun.

    I don't think he is in a easy place, politically or personally.

    In my case I wouldn't have an huge issue with either in the White House, and certainly wouldn't waste my vote on some populist "anti-dynasty" tripe. Who I would vote for would likely depend on the circumstances and party narratives at the time of the election.

    Most of us non-Floridians have not seen his economic record in Florida.
    Bush is in the running because he was invited to Vegas with three other governors; a stubborn GOP belief to have a governor again.
    His Immigration comments are a double-edged sword, chop from the Dems and bring back reluctant GOPs .

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    While I do appreciate his stance on illegal immigration, I would, under no circumstances, vote for him for anything. I've had enough Bush to last 10 lifetimes. Plus, I remember the side he fell on during the Schiavo debacle, and that left a horrible taste in my mouth.

    Besides, if I vote for Bush, I wouldn't have a vote left for Hillary!

    I'm old enough to not be afraid of any of them now, even Rand Paul.
    IMO, no matter when Clinton would have run in the general--including 2008--she would have and will lose.
    The GOP has been gunning for her for over two decades .

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    I would prefer Ron Paul winning the primary. I think some of his opinions and stances are a little out there, but he is the best in running the neocons out and deconsolidating the power of the government and federal reserve. His son is a little too close to the Evangelica wing for me.

    Re: Would you vote for Jeb Bush?

    I do wonder just what Jeb's position on immigration would be if he didn't have a chava at home.

    I'd have to hear about his other positions before saying one way or another. I'd say a more moderate CON would be welcomed with open arms by a majority of Americans, though pretty sure not by those in the GOP primary process.

    Oh well, not my sack of rocks to carry....
