Bush is actually a pretty moderate republican, and probably pretty electable, but the fact that 2 other members of his immediate family were presidents themselves just is so distasteful to me.  In a country of 310+ million, that's the best the GOP can do?  What's that say about the GOP?

 

 

It says the public has been bred to like brands in reference to so-called political dynasties, hence the long decades of trying to get other Kennedys to run, and the happy feet over Jeb & Hillary from their respective camps. It takes less thought to go with someone you feel hails from a comfortable, somewhat familiar mindset, than some less popularized pretender.

I don't understand how anybody can find Jeb Bush even remotely appealing, but am able to accept that "some people" are just like that.

 

Scott Walker is just... I'm sorry, but I just can't even accept that "some people" are able to like him.

 

:no:

Ted Cruz is fixing to announce.

 

Also yesterday this guy at the grocery store almost assaulted me for reading his bumper stickers. He had one that said "My Dog is a Republican" and another that said "When you vote in 2016 remember Benghazi not Hillary". Dude. Why won't these guys leave Benghazi alone. This is like worse than a conspiracy from I don't know when but there are some that will just not let go.

 

I'm just hoping Obamacare gets repealed or changed.

Man. I hope he makes it all the way to primaries. Although it is highly embarrassing for my state I suspect much hilarity from sound bites. Like a Michele Bachmann retrospective.

Yep.  President Hillary is all but a certainty, unless she murders someone on national television. Email servers at home, next to her bidet, notwithstanding.

I like Ben Carson.

He's got some kind of weird, religiously-informed conservative views that have no place in civilized society, but watching people's reactions when he speaks off the cuff (raging erections on the right, palpable disgust toward "that man!" on the left) makes him totally worth it. I hope he gets a lot of air time in the run up to the election!

Yeah, except for candidates like Carson, I doubt they are serious about running for president.  It’s more about getting the “street cred” of being a candidate, to up their personal value, and maybe getting paid more for key note speeches and the like.  But those seriously supporting his run for office, it's hilarious to watch.

Ted Cruz is perfect. The personification of our current political climate. A troll with the most punchable face ever. His wife works for Goldman Sachs too... It's like a f*cking fairy tale.

 

He's white, or at least looks it, so he passes the birth certificate test.

Florida has laws though that get in the way of Rubio. He had to quit his job first.

All this talk about Rubio's makes me want a burrito. Do you guys have Rubio's? I think it's just San Diego. But it's tasty.

I wonder if he can give one speech or interview without showing his disrespect of all things Obama. you know, like his own ideas that have nothing to do with "wehaveanadministrationthat" every ten seconds?
