Jeb is a lot better than his brother and I would have no problems voting for him.

Sorry Mr. Bushmonkey. Any spawn of Barbara Bush is automatically on my list of NEVER AGAIN !!!

George Worthless Bush has left a trail of destruction and ruin that the Republican party may never recover from.

Much like the Democratic party after Carer, we shall rise again...and with the election of a completely inexperienced child to the White House, it may be sooner than you might think.

I can understand your need to believe that, but the fact is the Republican party has lost touch with mainstream America. That became obvious last November.

Put simply; the facts speak volumes. Under normal circumstances, Obama would have fared no better than any black candidate before him.

Let's do a simple tally:

Obama is half black, half white.
Obama's full name is Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama is not a Washington good 'ol' boy.
Obama's father was a Muslim.

Now, all things considered, what are the chances that he would ever stand a snowball's chance in he11 of running for public office, let alone win the American Presidency ?

The defining factors point to the Republican party and the Bush administration. He has caused so much damage to America's image and economy, that a black man with a Muslim name was elected, in spite of the recent 9/11 attacks.

The reason that Republicans fell out of favor with America is because we were infested with wimpy moderates-such as John McCain. These moderates hijacked the party and rammed it into the ground. These "socially progressive"/big government liberal Republicans-not excluding George Bush-have ruined the party. Over the next four years, I hope they will be flushed out and go to the Left where they belong.

You Jeb supporters should read a book, written by a REPUBLICAN, on the Bush family. The title is DYNASTY. The Bush clan is a family business. They cater to the well being of the wealthiest people in the world. That's the way it has been for three generations. And, if Jeb was such a good governor, why is Miami a cesspool that is moving ever further northward?
If you refuse to read anything else, read the third line from the bottom of this URL. This is a real quote by H.W. Bush to reporter Sarah McClendon, during an interview, in 1992. If you don't believe me, research it.

The good news is that the Dubya presidential library will be a porta toilet on a trailer so that it can visit all of the republican strongholds. It will be a quick read since it will only have my pet goat on its shelve, the driver will sell george w bush potted shrubs and commerative crack pipes. Glad to see him gone while there is still something left in the world. The bush presidency has been a disaster for the country and the world, except for the rich.

You have identified something positive about dubyas residence,
"George Worthless Bush has left a trail of destruction and ruin that the Republican party may never recover from."
so his residency has not been a complete failure.

Such resentment for the "rich." If you resent, or actually envy, the rich so much, why don't you become rich? After all, this is America. Anyone can be rich. And we don't get punished for it here. Unless some people get their way.

Raptor, for someone who doesn't know math I can only assume that you also have no grasp of economics. I know this as a fact as I have read your posts on other threads. My hunch is that you also have little grasp of history, recent or long term. Beyond that I could also guess that you are too blind to see what is right before your eyes. I could also guess that you get most of your political, economic and social information from Rush, Sean, Glen, Michael (weiner) Savage, Mark Levigne and Faux news, and all of the other right wing highly paid shills for the so called conservatives. You really need to open your eyes and to stop believing all the bs you are being fed by these people.
I would also suggest that you not take Ayn Rand to seriously as it was fiction but I don't think you have the ability to read such a thick book with your learning (dis) ability.
For the most part I don't think you are a bad person but I do believe that you have been sorely mislead.
To get to your point about my sentiments regarding the rich. Any issue I may have with the rich pales in comparison to elected officials who favor them over the people who work for a living. As for myself I hold the title to my house and my vehicles and am not in debt. I earn enough to meet my needs and then some. How bout you. Are you going into debt while learning about birds of prey. Are your friends happy about the fact that the republicans want to put the auto industry, the lifeblood of michigan by the way, out of business. Do you resent the fact that an auto worker who has 20 years of service gets paid what they do? Do you think the companies should eliminate unions so that they can institute sweatshop conditions once again? How much do you expect the study of birds to pay you, and where will that money come from, the tax payer? You need to wake up, or not. By the way Bush is a disaster and should hang for war crimes as well as be shot for treason.
