    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.

    No! He has a BUSH problem. No more Bush's in the American White House.

    I think his big problem will be stand your ground. He was the Florida governor who got it passed. Immigration and SYG will be his problems.

    It was a personal tragedy. Politically it will have no importance.

    Jeb Bush's biggest problem in running for president will always be that George is his brother, and a hella lot of peeps will see the name "Bush" on the ballot, and immediately look for a different box to check.

    Re: Does Jeb Bush have a Terri Schiavo Problem?

    yep, the schiavo incident will be something jeb will have to explain to the American public
    reminding us that he provided the woman's family an opportunity to allow the issue to be resolved in the court, rather than ending her life such that a court decision in their favor would have no effect
    while i disagree with his decision, it is one easily understood and easily communicated. don't see that many Americans would vote against him knowing his rationale
    now, hillary trying to explain away travelgate is an entirely different matter
    and then there is whitewater
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    SYG wont hurt him, floridas law is very reasonable and once explained to people no one will oppose him for it. want a little trivia?

    Floridas SYG law was partially copied from a Washington State Supreme Court Ruling in 1917. (State v Meyer) which is the basis for Washington's stand your ground law which grants far greater leeway to private citizens then floridas law, no one would hold such a thing against a political candidate from Wash. SYG is a manufactured issue by a handful of fringe pro-murder/rape/robbery extremists.

    Indeed.

    The circumstances under which Schiavo was found unconscious were never fully explained, BTW. Not that this matters now; she's long dead. Her husband wasted no time in beginning a new family, however, while she was still alive. He certainly moved right along.

    I would have been a little more compassionate to his side of the story if he didnt come across as bitter angry and hate filled.
