Say again, neutral.
As Ronald Reagan might say, there he went again.
What was Jeb Bush neutral about?
The choice between liberal Charlie Crist and conservative Marco Rubio for the Republican nomination for United States Senator from Florida.
Oh, he finally came around. After then-Governor Crist endorsed the Obama stimulus, this was a bridge too far even for former Governor Bush.

I could really get behind Rand Paul, but the Gold standard thing is a real deal-breaker to me.
I can fully understand someone not wanting to vote for another Bush...but Jeb was a pretty damn good governor. He had coattails that gave us the first Republican legislature in 100 years.
Just finished a little research on Goggle:
“she’s (Columba Bush) a naturalized US citizen as of 1987.”
Thank the gods none of their crazy children can run for president. She was not a U.S. Citizen when they were born.
I think you’re half-right for 2016. I see Bush/Rubio as the ticket, provided the GOP powers-that-be get their way. I further predict that the GOP powers-that-be will tell the social conservatives to go pound sand; that they’re no longer welcome in the party. Not officially, mind you, but in the best politese they can muster.
Oppsie....I mean Google. But Goggle is fine with me.
Having Jeb Bush as our 2016 nominee is akin to simply handing the election to the Dims with no contest. If the stupidlicans haven’t figured out that the moniker “BUSH” spells doom for any future election, than they have even managed to outdo themselves as to the abysmal stupidity emanating from the now defunct GOP...
You got that right! They’ve got their heads up their collective arses and are not worth my time!
It’s evident that the tea party victory in 2010 did little to alter the control by the establishment GOP...in fact it’s only emboldened them, particularly on the House side.
Jeb Bush will run in the primaries against at least four or five conservatives. The conservatives will split the vote and Jeb will be the nominee. It’s been that way for the last 25 years and will be again. If he is nominated we only have ourselves to blame.
I will not vote for Jeb period. No freaking way.
Just like they did for Dole after saying they would not. And GWB. And McCain. And Romney.
Empty threats & the GOP knows it.
Forget about his governorship. Any sane conservative doesn’t want another Bush as a President let alone the nominee in 2016! I’m tired of hearing about how a decent guy he is, so was Dole and H.W. Bush and Romney and even McCain compared to Obama but they were either losers or wimped out to liberals
the fervent hope of the GOPe is YOU are stupid!
How exactly do we manage to do this? Primaries start back East, where they think RINOS are conservative and true conservatives are nut cases. That is why we keep getting RINO candidates, the choice is made for us before we even get to vote in the primary.
