    Dont give them any ideas! Republicans are this close to "Jeb in 2008"

    •  He'd never make it out of the primaries, IMHO. (0+ / 0-)
      1. Xenophobes wouldn't vote for him; he married a Hispanic immigrant and is completely fluent in Spanish.  This would get beyond the "oh good, he'll win over some Hispanic votes" territory into "oh shit, he's going to make our kids learn Spanish and fire all American service workers so that Mexicans can have their jobs."
      1. If fundamentalist Protestants had a better choice, they might choose that over Jeb simply because Jeb is a convert to Catholicism.
      1. At this rate, do you really think they'd vote for another Bush?  The administration is such an albatross around the neck of the party that the Republican candidate for Senate in New Jersey didn't want to be photographed with Cheney.
      1. Health activists beware.  Fidel Castro says that Jeb is fat.

        •  will never happen (0+ / 0-)

          way too much scandal in his family. His wife and kids, that is. See  here and here and oh yeah, here

          Crime: It's a Bush Family Pastime.

          •  Could happen (0+ / 0-)

            Scandal didn't stop the current one from taking the presidency. Blame it on the voting machines or whatever, the fact is many people voted for him, twice.

            I personally would not want another sibling or another generation of Bush in office. But I wouldn't doubt that it would be attempted. Eerily reminiscent of the three generations of Somozain Nicaragua.

            •  George Bush (0+ / 0-)

              did not have half the "family" scandal that Jeb does. His son was sexing it up with an underage girl in a parking lot. His daughter has mutliple busts of controlled substances.

              I'm telling ya, he will not run. His kids are total liabilities.

              •  ew. (0+ / 0-)

                That's pretty bad. underage girl in the parking lot? dude. I knew about some of the other stuff but that's is scandalous. And I thought it was bad that his wife was not declaring things she brought back from out of the country (basically, smuggling!)

            •  And how about this (0+ / 0-)

              could we please have a few years with someone not named "Clinton" or "Bush" running the country?

              Would that be totally out of the question, or shall I just return to the reprogramming center now...
