    I think George Bush was a disaster as President, certainly the worst of my lifetime. However, I think his brother, Jeb Bush, did a pretty good job as governor here in Florida. Had he not lost the 1994 gubernatorial election, he, not W, probably would have been the Republican nominee in 2000, and I believe the nation would be in better shape today had that occurred.

    Here are exerts of an interview in this weekend's WSJ.

    I forgot about Jeb. He's probably going to run in 2012, which means eight years of Obama.

    My god!

    Obama hasn't even figured out where all the bathrooms are in the White House and already the Republicans are beating the Bushes for another president.

    Surely there's got to be another Republican family of enormous previlege who deserves the opportunity to screw up this nation.

    Not that I in any way doubt Jeb's abilites to screw it up at least as badly as his brother did, of course.

    But you do doubt Obama's ability to screw it up, don't you?

    i don't know what he will do or want do and neither do you or anyone else.

    i like some of the things jeb said in the interview like with education. our system is outdated and isn't working anymore. jeb is probably is what i consider a moderate.

    So, either you didn't listen to him when he told you what he was gonna do or you think he was lying. Which?

    His brother was a moderate when he started out.

    Word has it here that Jeb is not going to run for President. A lot can change in four years, though.
