Jeb Bush in 2016?
(CNN) -- For all of our post-2012 election talk about the changing culture, the changing demographics and, perhaps, a changing party, preliminary thoughts out of D.C. about the 2016 election have us headed toward not much change at all: Clinton vs Bush ... again.
I am as intrigued by the prospects of these two juggernauts, Jeb and Hillary, locking ideological horns as I am repulsed by the thought of half of my life being dominated by two family names. One, Clinton, has risen from the ashes after the White House. The other name, Bush, is so toxic that the past two Republican nominees avoided saying it in public, opting instead to skip their combined 12 years in office and head straight back to Reagan.
Face it, Hillary has baggage, but Jeb has Bush, and that, moreso than his record as governor of Florida or ideas for the future, will determine, at least at the beginning, how he is received. That explains why more than a few conservatives were not thrilled to hear that he was thinking of running.

I voted GOP down the ticket...but for Constitution Party for POTUS...never support a GOP RINO for President. So run Jeb and you wont get my vote...I am more and more coming to the concluding that the GOP national is nothing but DEM LITE...and no MAS!
Gag me.... totally gag me.....
Wow, the propaganda starts early. Once the constitution dies it doesn’t much matter to me who the puppet is.
Call me when Rand Paul and Allen West team up.
By the time 2016 gets here Ronald Reagan could not win. Stalin would win in a roam. The United Soviet Socialist States of Ameirka will have gone over the cliff and down the toilet. I am not voting for another Bush. I am sick of the Scull and Bones gang.
Would finally be enough after 52 years of going to the polls in every presidential election - to make me stay home and not vote....
“No more Bushes for me. Period.”
This has got to stop somewhere.
I’m wondering if perhaps the 2008 election represented “the high point” numerically for the number of “Republican” votes cast in a presidential election.
The total was lower in 2012.
Put Bush on the ticket and it may be lower yet in 2016.
It’s no longer a question of whether the Republicans will face a threat from a third party.
They are turning themselves INTO the “third” party.
I think the Bush family are the ones behind Boehner and McConnell, don’t you? Who else would have the power to pull strings behind the scenes. They have to keep that dynasty going, you know.
Federal taxes are a shell game, we pay taxes to Washington and then they bribe us with our own money. We pay probably thousands of different kinds of federal taxes that we cannot keep track of how much money we individually pay to Washington. Washington is a big vacuum cleaner just sucking the money out of our pockets. I don’t think the problem will ever be solved in Washington because Washington itself is the problem. The solution is going to have to come from the states. Can the states nullify some of the federal taxes?
Don’t know if states can nullify taxes. But good thoughts.
