LET Rand Paul have his epic filibuster and Ted Cruz his scowling threats to shut down the government. Let Chris Christie thunder to a second term as the governor of New Jersey, his hubris flowering as his ultimate designs on the White House take shape.
Jeb Bush, lying low in the subtropics of Florida, has something they dont: the unalloyed affection of many of the Republican Partys most influential moneymen, who are waiting for word on what hell do, hoping that hell seek the 2016 presidential nomination and noting with amusement how far he has drifted off fickle pundits radar, at least for the moment.
Politics today has a shorter memory than ever. It also has a more furious metabolism, which Bush hasnt fed much since March, when he was promoting a new book on immigration and created enormous confusion about whether he does or doesnt support a pathway to citizenship for immigrants who came here illegally. (He later clarified that he does, with caveats, and even later praised immigrants for being more fertile.)

Not id the Cow Moose party runs its candidate!

No more Bushes.
No. No. No.
Stay outta da bushes.
This is a delightful idea! Let the gop nominate jeb and achieve complete irrelevance.
That’s OK. I’ll vote for someone who is best for America and neither of them are - but that won’t stop me. The bottom of the barrel is the liberal and rino way because no one is allowed to upset the applecart for the liars and thieves in DC. They protect their own on both sides - and it has nothing to do with protecting America. It’s not rocket science to figure that out -they proved it time and time, again.
"What difference does it make?"
It’ll just be another Clinton beating another Bush. Then they’ll all be buddies.
Where’s the barf alert??!!
It the NY Times for God’s sakes! Really there is no excuse for posting this without a requisite barf warning.
Just like the good old days at Mena Airport.
That sounds like he needs some ointment for that flowering hubris.
Or is that a reference to something less masculine?
Please excuse me whilst I go lose my lunch.
no bush can win
Schoomah’s other favorite RINO
