So it seems that Jeb Bush isn’t nearly as politically savvy as his admirers would have us think:
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says a possible 2016 run for president would not be affected by his brother’s lingering unpopularity.
“I don’t think there’s any Bush baggage at all [bold mine-DL],” Bush said on “Fox News Sunday” when confronted with a poll that showed almost a full majority of Americans have an unfavorable impression of former President George W. Bush.
What to make of this? This is a clear misreading of his brother’s political legacy. Of course, no one expects him to denounce or attack his brother, but minimizing the difficulties he would face as the third presidential candidate from the same dynasty just makes him seem clueless. Even if George W. Bush had been a merely mediocre, unremarkable president instead of a disastrous failure, it seems unlikely that the public would have much appetite for a third Bush presidency in less than thirty years. It isn’t entirely the fault of the dynasty, but since the Bushes started running the GOP the party has gone from routinely winning landslide victories to not being able to fight its way out of a wet paper bag. How stupid would the Stupid Party have to be to go back for a third helping of such brilliant political leadership?

You keep running from Bush, pretending he did not leave office with the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, doubling the debt, and two quagmire wars.

When you talk about unemployment rates & people on food stamps, you ignore it was Bush's recession that sent people to the unemployment lines & food stamps.

But Hey, Eed, you're dumber than sh*t.

<quoted text>You do I am not dependent on the Federal Government's entitlement programs they could eliminate them all and I would be fine.
Allow me to point out that under Bush, the federal government was doling out $125 billion per year in free subsidies to big corporations.

And the oil companies still get $4 billion per year.

Welfare to the poor... BAAAD. Welfare to big business... GOOOOD.

Your shitis getting hot. As "nutsucker" would say I am loving it. You can not point out a single case where I have supported racism. On occasion I have pointed out racism from folks I agree with on many issues. The only issue I agree with you on is that you are a racist and a liar. Your world is all black and white, black is good, white is bad. Live with it hypocrite.

All invsestors spend their own money in an effort to try and save foundering businesses. Did I just write that? Oh my goosness, sometimes I make myself laugh! I know, I know, investors don't actually "save" anything they just keep their eye on the ball and look for profitable opportunities.
Recently my husband and I were offered a chance to get in early on a tip by a family friend. He told us that Pfizer Chemical had developed a drug which would make teenagers invisible and had the potential to make liberals disappear completely.
Well, I don't have to tell you we jumped in with both feet! This is the breakthrough we've been waiting for, people! We tried it out on the Domino's Pizza boy and avoided a tip entirely. Then we tuned the television to Letterman, pushed the button twice, and poof! There was Jay Leno interviewing Ted Nugent!
We bought 1,000 shares (ugh! dirty word!) at 27.12 and already they're up to 28.18. Keep your fingers crossed for us, and please pray for our safe return.

So thanks, Lincoln. Nice to know real men actually exist on the other side of the fence.

? A different point of view? Well, what could be more different than me lookin' at the mirror on the ceiling and you bouncin' up and down in my lap looking at my professional credentials framed over the head of the bed. C'mon, woman, show a little enthusiasm for your work. Besides, if a man has your back that means he pretty much automatically shares your point of view except he can see your head in the middle of it. Not sure where I was going with that?

Holder screwed up by responding to a question that was posed as a hypothetical without thinking about the overblown reaction from the 'we live for hypothetical situations'/FOXbot crowd.
so until floriduh gets blown up by a drone, no worries.
It was the controversy over killing an American overseas that started the ball rolling.

Personally, I have no problem with an American who claims to be an enemy and a terrorist being targeted overseas.

But that controversy wasn't even put to rest before Holder started tripping all over himself about Americans being targeted here and the nomination of Brennan who supports killing Americans overseas.

It created some serious concerns.
