On NPR this eve: GOP waiting for someone better, like Jeb Bush.
This was a comment I believe from a poli sci prof or someone like that... independent. Not a Repub.

What would happen if Jebbie DID join up? Dear me...

6. I'd like to believe a clown like Cain or Gingerich would be rejected by their party
When HL Mencken said don't underestimate the stupidity of the American people, he sure was talking about today.

2. Been my fear for awhile
have even pondered if this circus sideshow we have been subjected to wasn't just to make it look like it could possibly be a sane decision and to give it credibility.

If you look at the entire spectrum--the ONLY other republican out there that could possibly be considered is Chuck Hegel, and he doesn't even like the republicans very much.

4. I've been waiting for that to happen. Don't think this current slate of idiots
is who will be the end result.

5. He'd probably be credible enough to beat willard in the primaries but he won't run because
his brother's mistakes will haunt him in the general election. He'll wait until 2016.

10. Wait a minute ... wasn't there a chant not long ago?
"I'm so tired of Bush/Clinton/Bush/Clinton every election cycle" ...

(a "Bush" or a "Clinton" since 1976, IIRC ...)

11. Outside of a few establishment country-clubber Republicons
None of the rest of them want Jeb Bush. He'd make Rick Perry look like Joe Arpaio when it comes to illegal immigration.
