I don't have a problem at all with Walker - I like what he has done and I would vote for him. I also like what Kasich has accomplished for our State, too.

    Kasich has been around for a while, hasn't he? I see him sitting in for O'Reilly from time to time and he's always seemed likable to me. Do you think he has a chance?

    Greetings, sawdust.

    I think Jeb Bush is a good man, but he's got the wrong last name for many people. That's so unfair, but it seems to be the case. Also many people do not want dynasties, which a Bush/Clinton face-off implies. You can't convince me that only the "elite" deserve to rule, because they're superior to everyone else - only in their own mind, BTW - which is something I consider Bull****! There have been many worthy people who couldn't get the backing or the money that is needed to even compete, and that's wrong. When third parties have to jump through hoops to even get on a ballot, things have gone badly wrong in this country. The old saying "anybody can grow up to become President" is no longer true. Sad...

    I met Jeb at a charity golf outing. He was a nice guy. Spoke to you as if he didn't have anything better to do. Looked you in the eye, had a firm hand and a commanding presence. He's very likable. He was also a good governor for Florida and left office being popular in the state. I have some policy differenced with him but not enough that I couldn't vote for him. Also governors make the best presidents. The only knock about him that I have is that three Bush's in office is too many for my liking.

    George P. Bush i a rising star behind him. Many see him as a future candidate. He is currently a Texas land commissioner. Too many Bush's though.

    Greetings, JC.

    Yes, Kasich has been around for a while, and everything he has done to date has been for the good of the people of this Country - he was the Chairman and the lead architect of the US House budget committee in 1997 that brought us the first balanced budget since 1969, which soon turned a deficit of -$163 billion dollars into a surplus of + $236 billion dollars! Not easy to do, but he accomplished it!

    Since he became Governor of Ohio, new businesses have come to our State, providing many jobs to grateful workers. He is well liked and trusted by both sides of the aisle, and that was proven when he carried 86 out of 88 counties in the last midterm election, garnering votes from both parties, in what was called a landslide by experts!.

    And probably more than anything else, he is a good honest man. He doesn't make promises he doesn't expect to keep; and he is well spoken and enthusiastic about what he believes good governance is - he cares about the people he governs, and we care and approve of him in return! What else can I say, except to add that whoever the Republican candidate for POTUS is, they will have to carry Ohio, and Florida, to win the election!

    It is sad that he is being judged, unfairly in my opinion, because of his last name. With his qualifications he'd be an automatic if his name was Smith or Jones, IMO. :

    That's true, Ohio is an important state, and I would have more faith in him automatically taking Ohio than Jeb automatically taking Florida.

    Btw, hope your day's going well! I'm at the library trying to stay awake while learning a new landscape design progam.

    Re: The Candidate for the Republicans

    I want to see the most conservative candidate with a realistic chance of winning. I do not want more RINO's or fake conservatives--meaning Bush, Christie, Kasich, and Graham, for starters.

    Nope, just learning on my own as a way to provide better estimates.

    Number one rule: You make money, else why bother? That seemed to work for the people I know, as long as honesty was also there - then you get repeat business! Then you become a millionaire..... Well, sometimes not...but what you got to lose? Big corporations start off small... :
