    Jeb Bush will be the Republican nominee for president. Remember, you heard it here first!

    (May God be merciful to us!)

    Hey, at least he won’t have to worry too much about fundraising.
    He can just borrow some of the MILLIONS of $$ that his brother Neil STOLE from Silverado Savings and Loan.
    After all, Neil only paid a $50,000 fine, and never saw the inside of a Jail.
    Of course, Jeb won’t have a Brother to jimmy the vote count of a close state to be sure he gets elected…

    As usual, it is most likely that neither major party candidate will be worth a shit. So vote for the person you think would do best excluding them.

    This is NOT a two-party system by design or nature. You can refuse the offered candidates.

    Mastersckrain: it was a whole $70,000, out of the millions he stole. Hmm, then his good bro’ comes up with NCLB and Neil’s “book company” sells all the materials for the program, nation wide! Then there’’s his daughter’s arrest in Florida, hmmm. No special favors in that clan.

    Clinton vs. Bush would be so sad… it would be graphic representation of a truth about our system that I would rather not see.

    You call Hilary or Jeb a choice? Using the term VERY
    loosely, I presume! About as much of a choice as
    Hitler or Stalin….

    That is a hellava toon, up down sideways and in the small print.

    The demographics are all trending toward the Democrats. New voters register as Democrats twice as often as they do as Republicans ( though more than half register as independents). But, in general, they are relatively liberal.There have been previous situations where one party was the subject of “The Party’s Over” books. But they were able to come back by appealing to demographics that the other party didn’t have in their pocket. The only people that aren’t solidly in agreement with Democratic positions are far left wingers and far right wingers. There aren’t enough far right wingers to win a national election. The Republicans can’t make their tent big enough to include the far left wingers without the people already in the tent setting it on fire. It’s pretty hard to imagine a situation where any of the available Republicans can beat any of 5-8 possible Democratic candidate, and most incumbents are reelected. That means we are most likely going to have a Democratic president through 2024, by which time a huge number of those angry old white guys that are now the core of the Republican base are going to be dead.The upshot is that there is a darn good chance that we will never again have a Republican president.

    @Chuck Barnard

    Yeah, but unless you can set up a party structure behind your choice, meaning that they have the money, the political connections, the volunteer network, internet connections like Vote Builder, etc behind that candidate, s/he ain’t got a prayer of winning.
    So, it makes more sense to vote for the one that scares you the least. Yeah, I know that’s disgusting, but lots of reality is.

    You are extremely naive.

    And in this corner. . .weighing in at 150 lbs. in the pastel pantsuit, the Benghazi Moxie, the Socialist with the Mostelist, HILLARY CLINTON!!
    And in the other corner. . .weighing in at 230 lbs. in the charcoal grey money suit, the Conservative Wonder, the Known Unknown, JEB BUSH!!

    And me in the back alley trying to find ANYONE to be a third contender.

    Puke, vomit. A candidate by any other name…

    Jeb is not a factor. He already self-destructed.

    .
    You won’t be alone there. Unfortunately. Just say hi, be polite and I’ll return the favor since the next to last thing I want is more Clinton and more Bush. The very LAST thing I’d want is another 4 years of Obozo.

    He’ll stand a better chance if he changes his name to have a “c” between the “s” and “h”.
