    America, as a whole, has gotten over racism as evidenced by Obama being elected twice.
    I don't think America has gotten over Bush. I thnk we are all Bushist bigots. Can we look past his last name and listen to what he has to bring to the table? Let's end the Bushism in America. Clean it up!!

    Try this again, my last comment didn't post. IT WILL BE A LONG DAY IN HELL !
    This family has done nothing but get us into war after war after war... destroyed our country's economy, ran the USA's name through mud... so many countries severed ties with the US under the last Bush... they lied to us about Iraq (and EVERYONE knows it was a lie.. theres no misleading.. it was an outright LIE!... You cannot brainwash the entire population into being that moranically stupid...

    But as said above... LET HIM RUN!!! It will guarantee that a Republican will not win... Guess Hillary will be our next President if the options are Hillary or Jeb..

    Sorry.. I dont think so... Its the last thing that will ever hqappen... We have already had two of them.. and the last time a Bush was in office.. The world started to hate us, we had several countries shut down their embassies and recall their diplomats, we had an economic collapse, and the richest people in the country got richer after massive tax cuts for them. I would say if hell froze over and if pigs fly I might vote for him.. but you know what.... There is still no way in hell I will ever do that.

    I'm not a political enthusiast – I don't make phone calls, distribute political pamphlets, attend rallys, wear slogans, or picket. But I swear to God that I'll do all of those things (and more) to campaign AGAINST Jeb Bush.

    Dude, seriously give it up. The Bush name is forever doomed when it comes to politics. The GOP didn't even trot GW out a SINGLE time for Romney because they knew it would mean instant political doom for them to be associated with Bush. I find that very sad and sums up everything that is wrong with the GOP. At this point they are nothing more than the right arm of the democratic party and are filled with nothing but bought and paid for RINOs cowtowing to every minority or special interests group in the vain hopes of getting their vote; none of which they received in the last election. Conservative values are sadly unrepresented in politics these days.
