  •  Jeb Bush is an interesting choice, like him or not (8+ / 0-)

    For all of your stereotyping, you can't paint Bush with an anti-latino brush.  Unlike the current President or any of the previous Presidents, Jeb Bush is married to a Mexican immigrant who is the daughter of migrant workers.  His handsome latino son, George P. Bush is likely to help with campaign.  

    And -- in case you've forgotten, the former President Bush actually made sense on immigration and appointed latinos to high office while President (and governor of Texas).

    From that standpoint, he's no Mitt Romney.  Pair him up with Marco Rubio and some non-insane positions on immigration
    and you've got a much better package to sell to the growing latino population.

    Better still -- let Democrats do a little non-insane immigration work prior to 2016, and the Republican candidates won't have to do diddly with the subject beyond saying "Look, we can't unring the bell on those folks that we've granted xxxx status to, but -- you bet -- we will patrol that border and we will come down hard on employers" yada yada.

    LG: You know what? You got spunk. MR: Well, Yes... LG: I hate spunk!
