Can Jeb save the GOP?
Last comment by Funkentelecky 1 year, 5 months ago.

Jeb Bush said this morning he's "heartbroken" that Romney didn't win the presidency... and then criticized Mitt's campaign.

But is Jeb in any better place to save his party from their own demise? Will the country even be willing to elect another Bush? http://on.msnbc.com/VwRMiE

Absolutely not. Heck, at this point and time, no one can. The way it looks to me, the Democrats will take back control of the house, and the Senate will maintain their majority. Say Good bye to the GOP..

too many people have figured out if they vote for the dems they will get free stuff. but give it time. eventually they will run out of others peoples money. then what will they do?

Thats odd..I voted for the dems but no one has given me any free stuff...please tell me where the free stuff is....

See that's my problem. I didn't vote for the dems and now blocked from the free stuff. Dang! ;)

Free stuff? I get it all the time. I don't work any more and the government "gives" me (according to the Dems) free stuff in the form of military retirement and Social Security benefits. I missed out on the free cell phones and food stamps, but I imagine they'll be handing out more of those in 2016.

Can Jeb "save" the GOP? Obviously that's one of those "facetious" questions. In a word: no. The country won't elect another Bush no matter how much more charismatic he is as opposed to his Dad or his brother. But then I don't believe the GOP NEEDS to be "saved." They just need to regroup and reassess just like tbe Dems did in the run-up to the 1992 election, and like the Republicans did in1980. Prior to those elections, the party on the "outs" was supposedly DEAD, too. Politics are cyclical, and the one sure thing is that the worm will turn and the "outs" will be back in before you know it.

So Dems - enjoy it while you can. THESE are your "good old days."

....and NO political party was more dead than the Republicans were after Nixon and Ford. All it took was one Jimmy Carter term and the country put an aged Republican (a former Dem I might add) actor in the White House.

sebekm, there's a big difference between leaches getting hand outs and people that earned what they get. the problem is the people leaching off the government will always vote for the party that gives them the hand outs. and the leaches are growing in numbers. and with the Obama's policys they will only get bigger.

I don't much think that the country will elect another Bush.

However we are living in a strange and reckless time in this country.

It is frightening to see those Aircraft carriers all lined up together in Norfolk like sitting ducks.

Remember Perl Harbor.

The fox is in the henhouse.

ON the news last night. 2008 27 mil on food stamps, 2012 47.5 mil.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Mar 06, 2013 at 09:37 AM

gacpl: AMEN.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Mar 06, 2013 at 12:09 PM

I agree. There will not be anymore Bush's to make it to the Oval Office.

However, on the other side of the aisle, we might see another Clinton making a run at it.

Another fallacy is that it doesn’t give accurate numbers, who is to believe economists that are left leaning will give you a clear picture. Most of this data is usually 2 years behind to ensure accuracy. The top 1% doesn’t earn 40% of the wealth; in 2009 they earned around 17% and paid around 37% of the bill. A poor person doesn’t create jobs and the federal government doesn’t create wealth. See the real numbers here presented by the Tax Foundation:

And here’s proof of more free stuff from the Obama Administration which will garner more votes and keep Americans dependent on Big Daddy G!
