Jeb Bush will have the full support of the business community seeing as they're not going to back a twice failed candidate like Romney again. Jeb Bush will also have even better Hispanic support than George Bush had because Jeb Bush will play the "I have mixed race kids" card and Hispanics will eat that up. The "We are white too" Hispanic crowd has been waiting for a Jeb Bush type forever.
    Yay, the race card!

    So, then, you're predicting a GOP win in 2016?

    Yes I am. Recent history would bear this out. Outside of Bush I, it's been almost 100 years since the party holding the White House for 8 years was able to hold on.

    That is not wholely correct. Fustration with Bush and team McCain-Palin sealed the deal.

    Just as my post #114...it depends on what team the GOP runs.

    If the GOP has another disasterous primary, and all indication point to that, the GOP has a mountain to climb.

    I can see what you are saying, and it is interesting to note that Bush had a mostly hostile media working against him for 8 years, but Obama has had a mostly friendly media working with him, however Obama still is unlikable to about as many people as Bush had toward the end. So Obama has done this completely by himself and that should disturb the Democrats as they go into 2014 and 2016 elections.

    Oh man .....LOL !!

    You people already elected a Candidate based on oration, platitudes, bumper sticker slogans and because the media told you too basically and look what that got us.

    Rick Perry is 100 times more qualified than Obama even after 6 years in the White House and he has a record to back that up.

    In the middle of Obama's desperately sick economy Texas is booming economically and offering job opportunities to millions of Americans from States like CALIFORNIA and ILLINOIS and MICHIGAN.

    No, we " got " a Surplus, ( a real surplus Jerry Brown ) and we " got " a economy " too.

    Took you a few days to come up with such a lame attempt to stand up for Texas?

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
