    Obama's a centrist democrat.


    How can people keep calling Obama a commie or marxist or socialist or.....?? Only people that don't know what these names mean I believe. By the way, thing are better now by far than when Obama took over especially considering repubs declared war on him from day one. I was not a big Obama fan but I did vote for him anyway. But I have to admit, after bush almost destroyed the economy, we've had a fairly good skipper at the helm.

    He talks about ALL his brothers accomplishments. Will he want to "finish the job"?

    Jeb Bush in the White House? Friends Say He’s Seriously Weighing GOP Run

    By Michael J. Mishak
    Associated Press
    Thursday, March 20, 2014

    Miami — Jeb Bush gets the question at just about every public appearance these days: Will you run for president?

    The former Florida governor gives a well-worn answer: “I can honestly tell you that I don’t know what I’m going to do.” It’s an answer that won’t satisfy the GOP faithful for much longer.

    The scion of the Bush political dynasty will likely be asked the question many times in the coming weeks as he raises his profile with appearances in Tennessee, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas — where he’ll bump into another possible 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Bush’s “yes” or “no” is one of the most significant factors looming over the 2016 Republican presidential contest. A White House bid by the brother and son of presidents would shake up a wide-open GOP field, attract a legion of big-money donors and set up a showdown with the influential tea party movement. Bush has said he’ll consult with his family this summer and make a decision by the end of the year.

    With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie facing multiple investigations in a political retribution probe, many Republicans see Bush as a potent alternative: a two-term GOP governor who thrived in the nation’s largest swing-voting state and could make the party more inclusive.

    ...

    A Washington Post-ABC News poll this month signaled head winds Jeb Bush could face: nearly half of all Americans, and 50 percent of registered voters, said they “definitely would not” vote for him for president.

    Nevertheless, friends and advisers say, he is mulling a bid and reaching out to influential donors.

    “He is seriously considering this, but he is not following the timeline that the pundits or the press would like him to follow,” said Sally Bradshaw, Bush’s former chief of staff.

    I don't believe that Republicans, as delusional as the establishment element of the party has become, is that ready to finally kiss off the party as dead. To vote for another Bush and usher in another neo-con love fest at the expense of the nation, and even more warfare against bogeymen abroad and against our own people would be insufferable to our nation.

    Except that a lot of rw voters believe we should take even more money away from the tax payers to build tanks, plane, ships we'll never use. Just build them and park them next to the rusted out others.

    Besides, some rw's will vote for whatever warm body is standing at election time. That's what they did last time and they still have no clue why they lost or that the country won.

    We may wish we had a stronger military with the weak POS we have as CIC! Of course, idiots like you thought Obama's Stimulus Plan, Cash For Clunkers, and Green bailouts were great investments! What a hypocritical turd you are!:eek:
