The GOP leadership is simply being practical, they know it will be impossible to win national elections without the Latino vote. Will this create a big stink with primary voters? Most certainly but that won't change a thing. Jeb has gotten the blessing of the leadership and Rove and they know how to get things done.
    The way the election is sizing up on both sides it could be argued that democracy no longer really exists in the USA in any real sense at the presidential level. I am confident a majority of people do not want a Clinton V. Bush election - neither one of them. But the powers that be are dictating that will happen.

    There is no circumstance where I would vote for Jeb Bush because he is fundamentally corrupt at the core and his history outside of politics is the basis for that viewpoint. Nor would I want him to have a majority in Congress if he became president.

    Don’t trust Jeb Bush with the power of the presidency

    I was disappointed by Michael Putney’s Feb. 6 Other Views column about the legacy of Jeb Bush (First round goes to Jeb, Feb. 4). Putney writes that it was “doctrinaire liberals” who opposed Bush’s involvement in the tragic case of Terri Schiavo — my then-wife.

    Who is Putney referring to as the “doctrinaire liberals” who were horrified by the former governor’s intervention in my family’s trauma? The Republican Attorney General Charlie Crist, who refused to take up the governor’s crusade? Republican Senate President Jim King, who fought Bush on passage of “Terri’s Law?” Pinellas County Judge George Greer, a Republican and Southern Baptist, who looked at the evidence of my wife’s case before having his rulings tossed aside by a governor who never met her?

    Does he mean me, a registered Republican?

    The truth about Jeb Bush is that he used my wife for his own personal political gain. You don’t have to be a doctrinaire liberal to be angry about that. In fact many conservatives were also horrified by Bush’s zealous intervention.

    That was a more general opinion about politics in general, and the new media has been a game changer IMHO.

    Yes, and irrelevant to the story at hand.

    Oh, I'm sure there will be, but I don't think the issue will "click". Not in a large sense, anyway.

He doesn't like the Clintons, and he's called the Rebs his "enemies," so that may be a win either way in his book. The downside will be having to lower the standard of living he has enjoyed for the past six years, which includes having to start paying for his own multi-million dollar vacations though, and that's going to be really tough on his family budget.
    Good afternoon Lady P - enjoying our frosty February??

    I can't imagine Obama doing anything to help anyone else electorally. He is strictly, solely, interested in himself. As such, he couldn't care less what the fallout may be from anything he does so long as he has notoriety, good or bad.

    As for living a certain lifestyle after leaving office, for reasons related to him personally and reasons beyond his control, I fully expect that the costs to the US Treasury in protecting and traveling with the Obamas will be the most expensive after Presidency bills ever paid and he'll make the Clintons look like pikers on the speaking tours. There'll be no tag days for the Obamas, guaranteed.

    All anyone in politics can ask for is a fair hearing, the closer to the voters the better. Filtered through the media, you have a hard time picking out what's real and what's not. I know he's not polling at the top in NH yet, but I think the Bush team has a lot of faithful campaign volunteers there from past runs and I think the Romney people will for the most part side with Bush so once things get rolling I'm hopeful he'll do well. If he happens to win NH, he might just roll - I doubt he can win Iowa, so someone is going to get attention out of Iowa other than him.

    Will be fun - at least on the Republican side there are some serious, sane, competent choices to make it interesting.
