I’ve been a faithful Republican voter for decades now.
But I won’t be voting for Jeb Bush. I make this statement as a public declaration, and I will live up to it.
I won’t be voting for Chris Christie, either. I will vote for _other_ Republicans on the ballot, but I WILL NOT be voting for either of them. I’ll leave that area of the ballot blank.
If after not one but TWO disastrous losses to a ‘rat as destructive to our values and heritage as is Obama — if that is all the Pubbies can offer up to me, my answer is “no, thanks”.
I’ll be 67 in 2016. I’ve just grown tired of voting for losers.
I’d rather see the Republican party die. If it does, there will be no choice except to replace it with something else — the proverbial “third party” that many around here say can never work.
I wonder if a similar sentiment was shared by members of the Whig party in the late 1840’s and into the 1850’s.
The Pubbies seem as ineffectual as ever, particularly in the months following the 2012 elections. There is, however, one thing that they EXCEL at — and that is marginalizing themselves. The Republicans are well on the way to becoming the “white dwarf” of American politics — there to be seen, but not much else.
It brings to mind the movie “Thelma and Louise”. I didn’t watch the entire film, but others have said that a recurring theme in the movie was that every time they came to a fork in the road, they took the wrong turn.
Similarly, every time the Republicans in Congress come to a point where they must “engage” Obama and the ‘rats, they “take the losing turn”, and make any kind of victory impossible. Not now and then, but EVERY time.
What’s the use of believing and voting for such losers?
I realize your opinion may be different, but that’s mine.
Arrivederci, Mr. Bush!
I'm with you on that. But I can just hear it now, Mark Levin in 2016: "I'd vote for an ORANGE JUICE CAN before I would vote for Hillary Clinton" and blah blah blah, so Mark, Sean, Rush, Palin all at the top of their lungs implore conservative voters everywhere to get out and vote for Jeb Bush. Republican establishment and Carl Rove know they can count on that, and as long as they can count on that happening then they don't need to change anything.
