    I know of nobody in my circle that wants to see another Clinton/ Bush election cycle. The author is delusional. I cant help but wonder who else the dems have to run besides Billary? I think it is they that are short on candidates.

    Jeb can't win a Primary- let alone a General! Amnesty, Common Core, Huge Government supporter. He's in the wrong party.

    Dole (lost) Bush (won because the Dems ran Gore, then Kerry), McCain (lost), Romney (lost)- now Rove is pushing Jeb. The GOP can't figure out why millions of 'assumed' Repub voters stay home...

    The establishment "believes" that they can only win with Jeb
    The establishment is wrong very very wrong.

    You run Paul vs Jeb, Jeb gets waxed

    The MSM wants Jeb they will endorse and tell everyone how great thou art. Then, bam, Jeb will be the lowest dirtiest creature to ever climb out of the sewer.

    The people are sick of the Bush's. sick of the Clintons, it is time for some new blood

    They really don't have anyone else. I think they're hoping for nostalgic voters hoping to repeat the good times of Bill Clinton and the 90's. They don't want Hillary, they only want her name and her husband.

    Not to get off subject, but I don't think Bush won because of Gore. I think Bush won because a lot of people realized his Father had more to do with the nineties economic boom than he originally got credit for. I think after Clintons second term people had buyers remorse. I think the reason Bush was elected in 2004 was because of fear of another 9/11 terrorist attack. That said, I would like to see a candidate like Cruz, or more than that like Rand Paul, up against Hillary. I think it would be a fun social experiment to see how that election turned out.

    Rand Paul is being underestimated and overlooked by many, that's a good thing this far out. I would love to see a Rand Paul - Ben Carson ticket.

    JFK?
    A Centrist?

    "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"

    That speech combined with his tax policy makes him a no good right winged extremist Tea Bagger

    AS long as the Democrats can hold on to their faith in the Kennedy's(Poppa and Teddy Rukspin), they will never see John as a Moderate Republican.. Which in these days and times, he would be considered one.... He, is their only hope...

    Same here. It seems like I've been voting with my nose plugged for several years now. Sure would be nice to be fully behind my vote, versus just voting for the lessor of the two evils.

    Let me see if I can get you to understand how this is actually happening. 1st off, Jeb Bush is not a Conservative, neither is Chris C.....or Romney or McCain. 2nd: The man who gets to choose who the GOP candidate will be is Karl Rove. Now Karl has lost two presidential elections using first McCain and second Romney as "The only man that can beat Obama" and neither man did. The GOP hierarchy has used useful talking heads like Hannity to make their case, and it has worked...but it hasn't been victorious.

    So here is actually what is happening: Karl Rove and the GOP hierarchy is moving away from conservatism. This is why we are getting yet another member of the Bush family being thrust forward as "the only man that can beat the Democrats". All this is doing is alienating what conservatives are left in the GOP and pretty much compelling them to become Tea Party members. The modern GOP leadership is who you can thank for making the GOP so easily beatable. So as the Democrat party moves left toward socialism, the GOP is moving to the left away from conservatism. It is not like Democrats are having to "Beat" anyone, the GOP is doing a pretty good job of shredding what is left of the conservative part of the GOP themselves. Every day the number of faithful Republicans lessen and all that is left are those who can be lead into the ballot box to vote for the lesser of two evils.

    If the GOP wants to survive the next decade? The best thing to do is to begin to eliminate this idea that a handful of GOP elites get to choose the GOP candidates. This handful fought so hard to beat Cruz and Paul......They put a lot of money into beating Cruz and Paul and failed! What Republicans need to do is to show Karl Rove and Co. the door and tell them not to come back! So enjoy it. If these idiots get their way the Democrat may never have to run against a real Conservative again.
