If Hillary and Bush are their respective party nominees, then you can expect that voter turnout in 2016 will be one of the lowest in Presidential history.

Is there anyone out there that thinks Jeb the fat Bush can beat Hillary? He won’t even try..so far all he has said about her is great things. If he likes her so much why would he even attempt to run against her?

The Libs thought GW was an idiot, Jeb can’t even remember what he wrote ... IN HIS OWN DAMN BOOK!!!!

Jeb is an idiot and a disaster, he is only better at looking “polished”...

I have heard Libs say “Jeb is smarter than George Bush Jr.” I think what they really mean is “Jeb is more Liberal than GWB Jr.”

Yes, if the Republicans just move slightly to the Left millions of Hispanic voters who have been thoroughly indoctrinated in Socialism will choose them over the Democrats.

How about if constitutional conservatives present ideas that will actually lead to growth and prosperity? There are more Hispanic votes to be gotten by presenting an actual alternative than trying to out-Democrat the Democrats.

The reason Romney lost in 2012 was all the conservative voters who could bear to pull the lever for him, not insufficient pandering to immigrants.

Why don’t we skip elections and start appointing our betters from the Ruling Class? We’d save money, time, and get the same results.

The author of this article is Nate Cohn.

If the “Hispanics”, as he calls them, can be seduced into voting for the party of give-away goodies, then they shouldn’t be here.

There is no freedom, no liberty, without responsibility. That means rejecting those who offer free things BECAUSE there are caveats attached to those votes - the loss of freedom being at the top of the list.

Jeb Bush, like the socialists, is for amnesty for ilegal aliens.

If the illegals become citizens the Republicans will never see the presidency again.

Nancy Pelosi has it right when she says passing immigration reform is more important then winning back the senate this year. She knows in the long run these illegals with citizenship will put the socialists over the top in the big elections.

In the long run the socialists/communists will get control of every branch of the Fed. Govt. with the voting block of the new citizen group of former illegal aliens and their families who will overwhelmingly support the socialists/communists.. - Tom

Well, i am pretty sure Jeb can.

No, I don’t think he can win the presidency under any circumstance, I just think he can beat her in that he could run and survive a campaign and that fat alcoholic relic can not. Her health will not stand the strain and I don’t see her being her party’s nominee.

Roger Ailes is certainly promoting The Last Bush every chance he gets, particularly on The Five. Dana Perino seems to be auditioning for a job as Jeb’s campaign director, but she may have to kill Karl Rove first.

Florida went for Obama twice, but has been massively Republican otherwise in the past decade. As I’ve said before, the pros of a Jeb candidacy is a very short list, but locking up FL would be one distinct benefit. That said, I think it can be won by other good candidates. It was a slim 10,000 vote loss in 2012.

If Hillary and Bush are their respective party nominees, then you can expect that voter turnout in 2016 will be one of the lowest in Presidential history.

Or there will be the biggest third party movement ever, or at least since Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose effort in 1912. Maybe, that would even be a good thing. With the anti-traditional American values vote split between Jeb & Hillary, it is just possible that an American who is not ashamed of his way of life, might be able to win.

I will certainly agree with those who vow never to vote for Jeb Bush. His loyalty to his foreign born wife is admirable. His citing his personal relationship as a reason for an anti-American immigration policy, is abominable. His failure to understand the distinction is contemptible.

TED CRUZ for President in 2016! Let’s put the GOP on the defensive and just come out with OUR candidate FIRST!

Speak for yourself. I don’t want a first-term Senator(he hasn’t even been a Senator 2 years for God’s sake) running against Hillary Clinton for sure. I want a Governor who has executive experience and has been through the ringer and that person is Governor Walker. He is our biggest hope for the future.

If she said that then she is dumber than I thought, even if it were passed this afternoon, they would not instantly become American Citizens and vote in November.

hillary/Jeb should run as a ticket, to assure their victory. Then maybe someone could actually come along and run against the puppet masters.

Understandably so since it would be two members of the same family running against each other..................after all, George and Barbara claim Bill as their "son" which means Jeb would be running against his "sister-in-law".

I wonder what the response would be if Hillary is addressed as Jeb's sister-in-law and Jeb as Hillary's brother-in-law in some public venue...........?

Yes, we need him to run, along with several other RINO’s to split the establishment vote rather than the conservative vote as happened in ‘08 and ‘12. We can’t afford another bad candidate.

this is why the GOP elites are pushing a no way to win candidate.

She would cut a deal to give the house and senate to the GOP since she would control the government bureaucracy.

She would cut the deal if it guaranteed her Presidency. I don’t think she needs a deal. I believe she will be President no matter what or who our candidate is in 2016. The idea of a Woman President will have people out in droves even more then 2008. We will not keep the Senate in 2016 if she is the nominee. We have a tough time in 2016 with the Senate (kinda like the Democrats do in 2014).

Now THAT is the most politically astute statement of the times.

Talk about a “back atcha” strategy with a few teeth...that’s it.

The dread of candidates like the Jeb’s and the Christies and the deplorable Huntsman-McCain-Boehner types is quite misplaced.

We need these RINOS’ to toss in the hat, split up the big money and divide the Establishment loyalties, just as we do to ourelves.

A ROVE orchestrated food fight among us conservative Tea Party voters is guaranteed, until we unite and stop it from working out so well.

Leveling the playing field means fracturing the Establishment among their own candidates.

_____

Santorum was my Senator, I would never vote for him. Earmarking, big govt hypocrite.

Huckabee thinks Govt should work and likes it big and intrusive.

Carson not even a player.

I have stopped giving money to politicians. It is another form of taxation, and my small amount relative to what they must take in is meaningless. Volunteering time, however, because you can introduce some ideas no matter how unpopular is far better if you can stomach it.
