Skip to comments.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.
Hed be an outstanding pick. Its 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 Id consider it, but I doubt Ill get a call and I dont know if its 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.

We have had two too many Bushes already. I do not care if Jeb is the best of the litter: what his kin has done is to destroy conservatism and given us Obama.
NO MORE BUSHES.
Rodney needs an actual conservative in the VP slot. Preferably a Tea Party conservative. You can only shove so much down our throats.
They really are pushing for a second Hussien term.
“Stay out da bushes!!!”
James Buchanan kept a "Nancy Boy" 150 years before BO occupied the White House.
But if Romney is elected the house and senate will keep him in line.......
For many people, it’s doesn’t matter who the vp. If romney’s on the ticket, they will stay home or go third party.
if romney is stupid he will select a “moderate” like jeb bush. If he is smart he will select a STRONG conservative like Sarah Palin/Allen West. If romney wants to LOSE to a homo-commie usurper with 20% unemployment, $16M in debt etc it is his choice.
One Bush gave us Clinton.
The next Bush gave us Obama.
Bush fatigue is still rampant, even though the Bushbots come out in droves when GW is disparaged.
Jeb on the ticket would ensure the reelection of Obama. What better gift than to give Obama another Bush to run and rail against?
The Bushes should stay in the bushes and never show their faces again in American politics.
We really do not need those that push for a One-World Government and promote Islam as a ROP.
No way in Hell!!!!!!!!
This closet homo needs to shut up and retire!
A trial balloon perhaps?
It woul be nice to have someone with a little knowledge of how the system works. I would pick Gingrich.
I wouldn’t be surprised if romney picked an actual democrat as VP. He keeps touting himself as one who got to be successful by reaching across the aisle. And I shudder to think what kind of judges he would nominate to SCOTUS.
I looked up U.S. Senate.gov and found Lindsey Graham and sent him a nasty Rino assclown letter. Told him I really do not care to vote for mitt and if his v.p. is a rino like Jeb he can go fish.
Jeb is for amnesty. Jeb is not a conservative but HEY, neither is Graham. He is a fag.
No more Bushes.
“Stay out da Bushes!”
The Bush “gift” that keeps on giving..
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.
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.
Graham-McCain are the worst.
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 thought Lindsey Graham had moved to Fire Island.
Linda Graham is a butt wipe!
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.
It took the fist Bush just ten minutes to throw Reagan under the bus...The biggest mistake Reagan made...
