Scratch another one- - - - -Bush drops out!

Another RINO bites the dust- - - - -Jeb Bush just announced on Fox News that he's "suspending" his campaign. Not really a bad thing, he hasn't made much of a splash and I think the country feels he's one too many Bushes. Now, if they can figure out that Shrillary is the second of too many Clintons!

    Yeah, I think he made the right choice. I would not have voted for him, nor do I care for his politics, but he left the race in a classy fashion.
    "Bipartisan" usually means that a bigger than normal deception is happening.

    Good move on his part. Now Kasich and Carson need to drop out and make this a competitive race.

    I think he'd have been a better president than his brother. He was smarter, probably a little connected to how most normal folks live. Glad he's dropped out.


    BTW, I read that the reason most folks "suspend" their campaigns is that it allows them to continue fundraising and hopefully wipe out some campaign debt.

    Glad Bush is out :applause:

    I think Carson will be the next one to drop out. I see Kasich staying in at least through the Ohio primary

    He lost me after the

    DHS
    Prescription Drugs
    War In Iraq
    2008 Bailout
    The illegal detention, without due process, of hundreds immediately following 9/11

    Took him long enough to figure out that America would never have another Bush as President.
    At least it was the hard core RNC supporters wasting their money.:applause:

    I liked him as our governor, but he should have listened to Mom I the first place when she told him the country doesn't want another Bush. The Klintons can go away, too!!

    He spent 118+Million damn dollars. Some of his spending broke down to $5000/vote, with about $1500/vote most common. Imagine how he'd spend in Washington.

    Trump - 32% - All 44 delegates
    Rubio - 22.5% - 0 delegates
    Cruz - 22.3% - 0 delegates

    Bush, Kasich and Carson were under 10% of votes.

    He had "Deferment " Cheney helping him make that decision. I didn't think much of H.W. Bush either. "Read my Lips".

    Bush was an idiot for even considering running. He could be the best president ever, but America will NEVER elect another Bush.

    I agree with you cpj. I like the Bush Family. They're known here in Texas to be good folks. But enough is enough. I was thinking this when he first threw his hat in the ring. Realistically, I could sleep real well with a Bush in the Casa Blanca, but it just wasn't gonna happen.

    I think he would have been a decent president, but we are in radical times. We need a hard-core constitutionalist to combat hard-core socialism that already has a serious foothold.

    Trump will need Ohio so do any of you see Kasich as a VP pick?

    Nah, I don't think so.
  • DurangoKidDurangoKid Member Posts: 183 Member
    The Bush family has made Conservatism a meaningless political label. The Bush Clan is a North Eastern dynasty. They have held control of the RNC since 1952. There has been a Bush or a follower in every National Election since 1952, 6 out of 9 times.
    They are not Conservative. The Bush Family and Obama are responsible for the distrust of the American Government.

    Do you know the real reason about why GHW backing down on his promise not to raise taxes? The read my lips statement probably did more to get him defeated than Ross Perot,or at least it didn't help. The democrats held it as a ransom for going with the coalition to get Saddam out of Kuwait. That's how patriotic the Dems are. We had no choice because Kuwait was one of our allys and Bush being a real patriot didn't do like Obummer and let em die.

    That could happen, but you never know about Trump. All I know about him is he's 100 times better than Hitlery or Bernie. But then that isn't saying a whole lot, But it's something.

    He could also need Florida and some of the hispanic vote...I think he will ask Rubio if Trump wins. They have not been at each others throat either, which is a good sign.

    Ohio may not be a slam-dunk for Kasich. Trump may pick up a lot of Democrats, there, and Kasich will be waaay down in the delegate count, after Super Tuesday, making it almost impossible for him to win.

    Yet.

    Trump has already dropped a stink bomb about Rubio not being a natural born citizen because he was an anchor baby. I don't see that this assertion has any merit. In my opinion, it's just some of Trump's smoke blowing that confuses folks and gets them to focus on anything but the fact that Trump has so far really not put forth anything substantial.

    As for Bush, I am also glad he dropped out. I never understood why Trump went after him so hard after Iowa, though, or why he attacked G.W. Bush. He already had Jeb beat, so why alienate his supporters? I can't see any Bush supporters switching to Trump, and it may be the Bush supporters who make a difference when the race boils down to Trump, Rubio and Cruz. It may turn out to be the mistake that costs Trump the nomination. Time will tell.

    I had not heard about that remark until today. If that's true, you are probably correct. I was kind of hoping if Trump won the primary, he would chose either of them for VP, but I guess those bridges are blown to hell now.
