Graham:Jeb Bush Would Be Perfect Romney VP Pick(Message to Lindsey:Shut up, we need no more Bushes)

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says Jeb Bush is the GOP VP candidate who could most likely put Mitt Romney over the top in the November elections.

“He’d be an outstanding pick. It’s up to Gov. Romney but if I had to recommend a single person it would be Jeb,” Graham told The Hill.

Graham is pushing for Republicans to mend their fences and quickly unify behind Romney. Graham is a close friend of Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee who had trouble winning over many grassroots coalitions during that contest.

Chatter is picking up on Capitol Hill that Bush could be a dark horse, according to The Hill, even though the current favorites seem to be Florida's Marco Rubio and Ohio's Rob Portman.

Senior political strategists think Bush could deliver Florida for Romney and help him among Hispanic and Catholic voters.

The Hill pointed out that Bush fanned speculation last month when he told Newsmax that “I’d consider it, but I doubt I’ll get a call and I don’t know if it’s the right thing for me to do.”

Bush has since tried to bury the notion that he might join the ticket.

“While the support is flattering, his decision has not changed. Gov. Bush will not be a candidate for VP,” said Jaryn Emhof, his spokeswoman.

Not as big as a gift as Graham-nesty. He is definitely a termite. They LOVE him on the Sunday shows.

I don’t know if I can hold my nose enough to vote for Willard.

Adding Jebbie to the ticket would seal the deal for me—no way.

I can’t stomach any more Bushes.

Doesn't make a difference if Jeb Bush is the VP candidate. Romney is going to lose.

After four more horrible years of Obastard, in 2016 Americans will do anything to return to the "good, old days" of the Bush presidencies. Jeb Bush will stroll into the Oval Office in a landslide.

That's the plan.

I have said this before. I will not be surprised if Jeb is pushed on us.

I will be perfectly honest. I hate Romney as much as I hate the bastard. Jeb would be a 3rd hate.

I agree totally.
This is no reflection on the Bushes, I just irrevocably believe that in a Free Democratic Constitutional Republic The is never room for Dynasties.
Corruption, arrogance and perversion of principle always ensues.

The problem was there in Greece of 400 B.C. and is painfully still with us today.
