I was in high school when I heard this, and I'm not sure how accurate the information is but I seem to remember there was a poll conducted in like 1998 asking republicans who should run for president and George W. Bush was at the top of the list. What made this little factoid stick out for me was that people in the poll thought they were selecting George H. W. Bush instead.

George W Bush did very well among Hispanics in 2000, and only slightly less well in 2004.

The GOP's core message of low taxes, less regulation, and social conservatism rings well with many of them.

Gosh, let's see. The previous two Bush presidents left office with the US economy in shambles. A third one would just put the last nail in the coffin. Hasn't the Bush family done enough to destroy the US? Haven't their supporters done enough to destroy the US as well?

I personally promise the GOP front runner in 2016 will make Bush and Romney look like reasonable canidates.
 
2012-11-11 01:51:03 PM
I figured George Bush was so bad that no one from his family would ever run for President ever again.

Hell, Bush was so bad, the GOP not only didn't invite him to their convention, but NO ONE from his Administration was there. And he was barely mentioned by the Romney campaign, as if there was a black hole of eight years that the Republicans conveniently forgot and all Romney could admit was "whatever happened back then, it wasn't me."

George Bush was so bad, he made it difficult not just for the GOP to run for President, but for white men to run for President. And with the sad state the party is in right now, its conceivable that the Republicans might not win a Presidential election for the next generation.... to the extent that the Republicans might have to dissolve as an entity altogether.

That is the legacy of George Bush.... who sold the country down the river for some favors and kickbacks, and has nothing to show for it.

2012-11-11 01:52:51 PM
So, Romney ran on "I'm not Bush" and McCain ran on "I'm not Bush". Maybe this one will be a winner because he can't say that. Well, I guess he could in Spanish and most of the teabag brigade wouldn't know what the fark he was saying anyway.

This. The Republicans don't seem introspective enough to realize they lost the Latino vote because their policies are hostile to Latinos. Their thinking is more like, "Hey, we nominated a white man and won the white male vote, if we nominate a Latino we're sure to win the Hispanic vote."

Jeb will run in 2016, as will Rubio. Christie said something nice about Obama, so he's finished. Prescott will run some time down the line. My concern for 2016 is that there are no obvious Dem frontrunners. Biden is too old and nutty, and I don't think Hillary wants to do it. That leaves who?

I agree that the GOP can get some of them back, but keep in mind that the younger generations of hispanics (just like younger generations of every race) are leaning more and more liberal, especially on social issues.

But the GOP is deluding themselves if they think merely playing catch-up on immigration will make hispanics as a whole flock to them. The hispanic vote agrees with the Ds more than the Rs on most issues.

I think it is really hard to predict that far into the future. I mean, would anyone have predicted Obama in 2004? (What's his equivalent, Castro?).

I bet if you go back and look at predictions four years in advance they mostly turn out wrong, especially for the Democratic side (the GOP has had more of a tradition of line of succession). That said, in 4 years who knows... Castro? O'Malley? Clinton? Warren? Patrick? Warner?

The only prediction I'd make is there will be at least one woman on the ticket.

I have a suspicious feeling that, due to the success of Obama, the next several campaigns are going to have "novelty" candidates all vying for those sweet, fresh, burgeoning new/ethnic/youth votes.... like Palin, but qualified. So we're going to see the first woman, gay, jew, latino, chinese, native indian, east indian and pothead President within the next 50 years. And maybe if there's time, the first openly atheist President.

Basically, every demographic minority will get a crack at the big prize so everyone can feel special and validated. Or something like that.

This isn't as new as you are pretending. Parties have often looked to run candidates or VPs that are supposed to seal up some region or growing voter bloc.

Although I'm not sure I can take someone seriously who thinks running a woman (50% of the country) counts as a "novelty"

We agree that $1.25/gallon is a ludicrously high amount. George Bush is a former Oil Man with many close ties to arab oil interests. He'll be able to talk with the middle east and truly be the Inside Man to ease the stress on struggling motorists.

America is in no way the world's police, and has no business going abroad sacrificing young american lives telling other countries how they should be doing things. George Bush will put America first, and focus on true Homeland Security by dedicating his administration to a mighty MISSILE SHIELD.

We cannot have the proof... a smoking gun... to come in the form of a mushroom cloud. By building a Missile Shield, American families will be prototected from any and all harm from rogue nations. George Bush will combat the true dangers of the 21st century, all the while helping families grow at home.

By encouraging deregulation in the private healthcare and banking industry, free market forces will ensure competition drives prices down, making private healthcare and the American dream of home ownership affordable to all. It is unamerican to inject the Government in other people's business, and it is a core Republican belief that Government should be so small as to be able to drown it in your bathtub. Privacy, above all, is the God-given right of Americans.

Vote Compassionate Conservatism.
Vote fiscal responsibility.
Vote small Government.
Vote GOP.

Vote Bush 2000

"Already, George P. Bush's prospects look bright. He's the co-founder of Hispanic Republicans of Texas and, as Joe Hagan learned while reporting on Jeb Bush for New York Magazine's Election Issue, also deputy finance chair of the state's GOP machine and an early backer of Texas Senator Elect Ted Cruz."


Now there's a deep résumé for you.


eddiesocket: Christie said something nice about Obama, so he's finished.



Not necessarily forever -- it all depends on the timing of the coming Silly Party implosion. Along with Huntsman, he could wind up being one of the few 'sane ones' to rise above the wreckage when that day comes. Working with Obama wasn't just the right thing to do, it could prove to be a very wise strategic move. Time will tell.

THIS is why we can't have nice things. A recognizable name and a Hispanic wife do not make a person presidential material. This is cynicism at it's worst.

They better start sorting it out now. Under Bubba I couldn't stomach Hillary but no one can realistically argue she hasn't paid the dues. Her qualification make GPB a school boy in comparison. Too bad she dispelled any notion of running.

MFAWG: Mitt Romneys Tax Return: Bill Frist: MFAWG: Actually, no. In 2000 immigration was not a front burner issue yet. Don't assume the hispanic vote is now going Democratic for a generation.

Despite the GOP claim that hispanics are "traditional conservatives", they actually agree with the Democratic party more on most issues (social issues, role of government, etc.) not just immigration.

This. The Republicans don't seem introspective enough to realize they lost the Latino vote because their policies are hostile to Latinos. Their thinking is more like, "Hey, we nominated a white man and won the white male vote, if we nominate a Latino we're sure to win the Hispanic vote."

Yes. But it would be foolish to assume that they are 70 pct block vote that can be counted on automatically.


In the last four national elections, Latinos have voted over 60% Democratic. With no indication that Republicans are going to moderate their positions on immigration and civil rights, I don't see them regaining the Latino vote any time soon.

45 pct voted for Bush in 2004. It flipped the election. The GOP doesn't need the whole Hispanic vote, it just needs enough Hispanic votes.

Bill Frist: eddiesocket: My concern for 2016 is that there are no obvious Dem frontrunners. Biden is too old and nutty, and I don't think Hillary wants to do it. That leaves who?

I think it is really hard to predict that far into the future. I mean, would anyone have predicted Obama in 2004? (What's his equivalent, Castro?).

I bet if you go back and look at predictions four years in advance they mostly turn out wrong, especially for the Democratic side (the GOP has had more of a tradition of line of succession). That said, in 4 years who knows... Castro? O'Malley? Clinton? Warren? Patrick? Warner?

The only prediction I'd make is there will be at least one woman on the ticket.


Here's a list of Democratic governors. The ones I've seen mentioned as potential candidates are Cuomo, Hickenlooper, Patrick and Gregoire. Any others? Anyone from the Senate besides Warren?

Jerry Brown (California)
Andrew Cuomo (New York)
Bev Perdue (North Carolina)
Brian Schweitzer (Montana)
Christine Gregoire (Washington)
Dan Malloy (Connecticut)
Earl Ray Tomblin (West Virginia)
John Lynch (New Hampshire)

I'm not convinced Christie or Huntsman won't get the Democratic nomination in 2016, the way things are going on the other side. I also think Rubio will jump off the crazy train long before it crashes into the wall... he may be toeing the party line for now, but his own intelligence should prevail.

I also haven't ruled out a complete split in the GOP. Rubio should take over the sane element, while the Tea Party can center around Bachmann and Santorum.

Jeb should just quietly retire. The world needs to forget about his family for a generation if he wants his son to hold a national office someday.
 
2012-11-11 03:10:09 PM
Eh, maybe.

That is, if the Teabagger/GOP can get their collective head out of their asses and actually do something worthwhile.

And by worthwhile, I mean not only parroting what the Democrats are willing to do, but going past it and, more importantly, ACTING on it. Not just doing the usual 'gotta-be-to-the-right-of-the-Dems' tripe, but leaving that whole bullshiat mentality behind... completely outclassing the Left on immigration reform. Minorities have been on the Left side of the aisle due to the passive racist sentiment the GOP has ran on since the Civil Rights Act.

I do not see that kind of change happening. Until such time as the Democrats cede the centrist ground, the GOP is stuck in the far-right range of things.

Man, the Republicans really, REALLY want their own Kennedy family, don't they? An old-money tree with a few embarrassing branches and enough name recognition to ensure instant success in an election.

I don't really want to see George III run for election, if only because you couldn't have a more cynical move in American politics if you designed one - hey, Obama did unexpectedly well among Hispanics, so let's have one of George H.W.'s "little brown ones" run with instant name recognition.

But the difference between George H.W. and George W. was night and day. I get the feeling that even as President, the elder was a little disappointed in the kid. The elder was a responsible, flexible, middle-road Republican who actually did fight in his generation's war and whose public experience included being the head of the CIA, the ambassador to China, and Vice President. He knew that he was contributing to history, not the other way around.

I'm still in a "I wouldn't vote Republican if you put a gun to my nuts" mode, though. Just pointing out that the father wasn't the son, and the uncle probably isn't the nephew.

eddiesocket: DamnYankees: Let's face it - this is happening. We're gonna be dealing with these jerkfaces for another few generations at least.

Yep. The only way for Republicans to win again is with a Latino. And most would have an extremely difficult time getting through a teabagger primary. But Bush has the big money connections to make it happen.


I don't think even George P. is capable of it. By the Jeb's time as governor the Florida racists were already directing a whole shiat ton of racism towards Columba because of Jeb's immigration stance, and if George P. takes any immigration stance that isn't "wall off Mexico", he's going to get the full brunt of the GOP anti-immigrant sentiment even with the last name "Bush".
 
2012-11-11 03:31:48 PM

born_yesterday: I sure hope he does. I don't like having to learn stuff about candidates, like their record or stance on issues. I'd rather just be able to vote for someone based on their name. Kinda like a royal monarchy, but better, because I voted for it.


I'm all for fairness and equality, but in reality, one of the functions of society is to stop shiat from happening repeatedly when it doesn't need to. It's not fair, and society is an utter dickhead, but there ain't gonna be no Bushes getting elected for at least a generation.

Is that wrong? Yup. But this guy presumably has an IQ higher than room temperature, so if he's stupid enough to run, yes, I will have no problem laughing my ass off when society works.

Despite the GOP claim that hispanics are "traditional conservatives", they actually agree with the Democratic party more on most issues (social issues, role of government, etc.) not just immigration.

Not by the 30 pct margin that went to Obama this time. They tended to be evenly split until the 2006 midterms. Even in 2004 they voted for Bush at about the same margin the population as a whole did.


I am a white female married to a Hispanic man. I'm sure there are some Hispanic Republicans but I have never met one. Out of all the friends and family members that I know who are Hispanic not one votes Republican. I think you underestimate how liberal Hispanics are. They tend to care about the poor, the sick and the neglected of society far too much to vote Republican. Oh sure, I see the rare Republican on CNN or Fox but I think they truly are more rare than you think. Several Hispanics and Asians we know who are not citizens and cannot vote asked us who we voted for. When we said Obama they all showed not only approval but relief. I have a tenant from France, another from Africa and one from China. All said they would vote for Obama if they were citizens. That's just what I see from real life and those around me. The Republican party has alienated not only the majority of Americans but the majority of the world.

This thread proves how out of touch Farkers are. George P. Bush is at least 8 years away from a Republican presidential *primary*. The strategy is as follows: 1. Hispanics like George P. Bush and Marco Rubio run around speaking Espanol and saying good things about Republican values. 2. Marco Rubio loses the GOP primary but has a strong showing early on. 3. Christie wins the GOP primary. 4. Possibly Rubio is a VP pick if he doesn't prove too toxic to the party.

There will be relentless liberal attacks on Rubio for the next 4 years because right now he is the frontrunner. It will make the libs look bad and it will test the viability of Rubio as a candidate. The Republican strategy for the next presidential election is not only in place, it's almost a slam dunk winner. They will put forth a charismatic candidate while the Dems hem and haw and finally put forth a shrill, unappealing old white woman. Unless it's Cuomo, which would be the smart move for them.

Bush and Marco Rubio run around speaking Espanol and saying good things about Republican values. 2. Marco Rubio loses the GOP primary but has a strong showing early on. 3. Christie wins the GOP primary. 4. Possibly Rubio is a VP pick if he doesn't prove too toxic to the party.

There will be relentless liberal attacks on Rubio for the next 4 years because right now he is the frontrunner. It will make the libs look bad and it will test the viability of Rubio as a candidate. The Republican strategy for the next presidential election is not only in place, it's almost a slam dunk winner. They will put forth a charismatic candidate while the Dems hem and haw and finally put forth a shrill, unappealing old white woman. Unless it's Cuomo, which would be the smart move for them.


Ah, yes. the tried and true GOP strategy of yelling "HEY, MINORITIES, WE GOT ONE TOO!"

Ask Sarah Palin and Herman Cain how well that has worked in the past.

abb3w: Gyrfalcon: Prescott Bush was one of the brain trust that tried to get FDR assassinated and replaced with a fascist leader because they liked Hitler's ideas so much and that is not a rumor or a conspiracy theory.

It is, however, still only supported by hearsay testimony.


Alas, this many years later, that's all it will ever be.

But when has that stopped anyone?

They should go with his other brother Neil. He has strong business credentials like Romney.
