Mitt Romneys tortured triumph in Michigan put him back in the GOP drivers seat but that hasnt quelled the desire among some Republicans to trade up.
Yes, Republicans are still pining for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, despite his repeated and vehement refusal to be sucked into the 2012 Republican vortex.
And Democrats continue to cast a wary eye on a guy they see as more dangerous and capable of connecting with middle-class and Latino voters than Romney.

MSM is desperate to find a loser against Obama.
Just the word Jeb Bush fills me with endless orgasms. /sarcasm. :-)
A choice between aged RINO meat and well marbled RINO meat.
Hmmmmh, I thought Rick and Mitt got the same number of delegates. Not much of a win for Mitt if you want to call it that.
Oh yeah, I’m just panting to vote for a pro-amnesty (married his wife while she was aMexican National!)”compassionate conservative” like JB. /Barf Spasm
The only one who can beat Obama is the anti-Obama...not the next closest thing.
What do you think all the trumped up talk about a brokered/and or open convention has been about. The Bush DYNASTY... Danger Danger...
Of course there's a far more sinister path where the board of the GOP could suspend all rules concerning how candidates are selected and simply ANNOUNCE who the candidate would be.
I would encourage everyone to leave the GOP...up and down the ticket...if that occurs.
Make it the most lop-sided election since Stalin last ran.
Only problem is we have our own little Stalin on the other ticket and these rotten bastards could use that as leverage to force their candidate.
I will vote for Santorum. I will vote for Newt. I will vote for the nutter RP. I will even vote for Romney to jettison the Prince. But if the powers that be somehow try to inject La Raza Jeb as the nominee I will not vote for the rapublican candidate for POTUS.
Now I know that is no big deal in the scheme of things but I felt the need to lash out.
Hey, we agree on something. River Styx must be frozen today.
I think we need Sarah.
This is one Republican that isn’t pining for any more Bush’s.
After George W. Bush's failed presidency and after what he did to this country--no Bush has a snowball's chance in hell of getting elected.
I’ll state this as calmly as possible: The United States doesn’t want another Bush Administration. The first President Bush caused the election of Bill Clinton and W. caused us the election of Barack Obamna. I shudder to think of which Democrat would replace Jeb Bush.
This is an important and insightful axiom.
Many folks on this forum fail to recognize how formidable a candidate Obama is/will be. Especially with every conceivable media and popular culture outlet soundly in his corner.
Remember the sh!tbombs Romney landed on Newt between SC and FLA? Magnify that 100x and then imagine it going on for 90 consecutive days.
Plus that commie charlatan is well liked by those who receive a green US Treasury check...and every state/local municipal employee. Unions. All those teachers, janitors and bus drivers. All those businesses who derive the bulk of their revenue from the government...or are the beneficiary of favorable tax breaks and non-regulation.
And women. He'll likely win 60% and 70% of the subgroup of single women.
Hispanic vote. Black vote. Catholic vote. Jewish vote. Asian vote.
Obama walks in the door with at least 48% of the general electorate. Locked in.
People! Please don't think this is going to be easy. Don't think that because a 5th grader can figure out who the best choice is...that they'll actually choose that way when the choice is "What's good for me vs What's good for the nation".
While it's entirely possible we have Crossed the Rubicon and all hope is already lost, we must fight to our last breath, lest we be known to our enslaved posterity as the toilette scum we would otherwise be.
Our only hope is Newton Leroy Gingrich. The anti-Obama.
The truth is the most valuable commodity!
Well that was a heck of a stem-winder if I do say so myself:)
Well then, keep winding that stem!!!
No one. Cause Obama would win.
The GOP hasn't won POTUS without a Nixon or Bush on the ticket since Herbert Hoover. As much as voters don't like political dynasties, they apparently do in the case of the Bushes and the presidency.
As cardboard and RINO as Jeb is, he is IMO, less worse than Milt, Santorum and Paul are. Again, I like Newt (although I don't think he can win in the general election in November), and have posted scores of times I'd like to see Paul Ryan or Mike Pence “drafted”.
Can another Bush win? It's too bad we have such crappy choices to choose from.
I agree with you about JEB! He will be an even worse Globalist than his big brother George. We are so screwed...no matter what.
While technically close, it's difficult to understand what Nixon and dynasty have in common.
No, America, with the Adams, Bushes and Roosevelts (are their others?) as examples, is not dynastic. That was the old days mostly.
Now days it's all about cultural infusion and outlets.
We don't need no STEENKIN' RINO's....we need a Conservative Nominee, period.
The point I was making was the GOP hasn’t won the POTUS without a Nixon or Bush on the ticket since Hoover.
Actually, I’d consider Nixon as his own dynasty (or perhaps reign) - the only person to be elected VP and P twice.
I agree with your comment about cultural infusion and outlets.
Jeb Bush is a sure fire loser.
A McDonnell / Rubio or McDonnell / Connie Mack ticket would be awfully tough for the Kenyan to defeat.
Who are these Republicans and were can they be found? They need to be bagged and tagged.
It's just lunacy, so much so it can only be a planted story to keep the Bush brand name alive for Democrat operative's purposes.
Quotable: Jeb Bush
February 29, 2012
“I used to be a conservative and I watch these (GOP presidential) debates and I'm wondering, I don't think I've changed, but it's a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people's fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective and that's kind of where we are. I think it changes when we get to the general election. I hope.”

Catching up; didn't want this to get lost in the shuffle.
