Will Jeb Bush ever run for US president? Will he get it? The rumour is...... he will.

Let's separate him from George W Bush for now.

No considering what a mess W has left the USA in, there is not a snow balls chance in hell that Jeb will run. That is the only good thing to come out of W's presidency.

The Bush name was highly regarded because of George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush has permanently tarnished that good name. I think it's safe to say most Americans have had enough President Bush's.

God I hope not.

Don't know much about him - but the one world government and new world order theorists have been all over his father and his brother for moving us toward a single world government.

I don't want to listen to that again if another member of the family gets to the White House.

Aside from that - I don't think any one family should be in the White House three times in two generations.

He can run but if he expects to be elected in the next 50 years, he'd better change his last name.

Actually from all the Bushes he seems to be the one I would vote for but I have to agree with the others. We have had enough of Bushes in the white house.

Jeb should have run for President in 2000 instead of George W., I think everyone would be better off including George W.

Whether he is good or bad, we do not need these dam family names over and over again. We have over 300 million people here, I would think we have other names that are not politically connected that can do the job just as well as a Bush or Kennedy.

I wish McCain could have been President for the last 8 years - I think this country would be pretty different right now had that been the case.

Or Gore. Or really anybody other than George Double-U.

Either way ... as Robin Williams put it, you have to feel bad for a family where the smart one is named "Jeb." Jeb would probably make a better leader than George Double-U, but I honestly would not want him in the White House anyway.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

I doubt it. He has his own baggage from a daughter with a drug or mental health problem to his overdoing the support for the comotose woman who some wanted to pull her life support from.

Florida is seeing major problems right now from climate change, enviromental deteriation, a number of devestating hurricanes in recent years which has led to exponential raises in property insurance, rising property taxes, a collaspe in the value of homes and real estate, deeply affected by the economic crises. Many of those issues developed and occured during his Governorship.

I also think there is going to be very wary eye toward any more Bush family members in politics for the forseeable future as they have had their turn and GWB ended it.

Not too highly regarded, I believe... although he was Reagan's veep, his tax blunder during his presidency really cost him.

So you're saying he's to blame for hurricanes and global warming?

I suspect the issue is more how he has dealt with the problems arising as a result of these phenomena.

Absolutely, John McCain 2000 was exactly what our Country needed. Unfortunately he was changed by the time the 2008 campaign rolled around.

There have been much bigger blunders, George H.W. Bush was probably one of this Country's most competent Presidents.

Had he finished the first Gulf War conflict then yes I "might" have given him that! Since he failed, look at the mess W made finishing his fathers work.

You mean the one where he was accused of being about to introduce a new tax and he replied "read my lips: no new taxes" and some of the media tried to spin a subsequent tax increase as a "new" tax"? It depends how you look at it, I suppose.

Huh? Occupying Iraq was the mission of Gulf War I? Since when? I thought the mission of Gulf War I was liberating Kuwait. Silly me. I thought Bush I was told by his advisors there were not enough American troops and support to march to Bagdad and take out Saddam, so, on the advice and knowledge of his advisors, he stopped at Kuwait. At the same time, he pissed off a little known and radical sect of Islam known as al-Qaida because Bush I decided to build a US air base in Saudi Arabia. They wanted no foreign forces perminantly in their holy land. The rest, we all know.

Absolutely not, in fact history has now proved without a doubt that they made the right decision in 1991 to not push on to Baghdad and topple Saddam.

You don't have to take my word on it though, listen to this interview with Dick Cheney from 1994 and be astonished at his foresight. He states their judgment at the time was they were able to achieve what they did with few casualties (146 or so) and that they asked themselves was how many more casualties toppling Saddam was worth and their correct conclusion was "not many".
