Dear Jeb,

crossposted from penigma.blogspot.com:

I was in an epistolic mood this morning.

Dear Jeb
You've been complaining that Obama blames your brother 'Dubya' for what happened during his presidency.

Let me be clear.

It is not ONLY Obama who blames your brother. We ALL DO.

That is because your brother and his policies were an unmitigated disaster. Your brother was one of the worst presidents in our entire history, and the single WORST president in the past century.

It's not ONLY your brother however, that bears the responsibility of those EPIC FAILURES. It was the neocons and other right wing nuts, groups to which you belong, who have failed policies, failed ideas, and not to mince words here -- failed priorities and values.

Your Republican economic policies frankly suck, especially your tax policies.

Your other Republican domestic policies frankly suck, and the bad ones are too numerous to list here.

Your Republican foreign policies suck worst of all.

So quit your damned whining about your brother; he deserves every bit of blame he gets.

And by the way - we don't think much of you, either, after your hanging chad fiasco and voter disenfranchisement and election tampering in Florida. We also still don't believe the lying promises from your party either, and the obstructionist tactics you have employed have justifiably merited the highest disapproval ratings in the history of ratings for Congress.

It is highly unlikely YOU will ever be president; and if you want to know why, look in the mirror - AND blame the failures of your brother. It is because neither of you know how to lead or govern.

Just so we're clear.

2. I'm surprised punkin' head Jeb hasn't thrown his over sized hat in the ring...

I have a feeling we'll be seeing that big ol' head fill our tv screens in 2016.

Eff the Bush family.

3. Be careful...

Do not underestimate Jeb Bush because of his last name. He's the last person I'd ever want in office. Especially since I'm from Florida. However, he also left office with approval ratings at or above 60%. He's also popular with the Hispanic base. At one point he was also rated "the second best governor in America on fiscal matters."

Remember, W was voted in after his father. The Bush name does not mean that others will turn away. I have plenty of friends here in Florida who wanted him to run this year.

It's scary, but true.

That being said... DEMOCRATS 2016!

Edit: BTW, fantastic post. Going to share this.

5. Bush will run in 2016

Once Romney loses in 2012, you can be assurred the Jeb will run in 2016. Unfortunately for Jeb, he will never make it out of the primaries, he will not be able to satisfy the wacko extremes (Tea Baggers) on the right. In addition, if by some slim chance Jeb made it out of the primaries, he would still have to prove to the American people that four more years of a Bush would not be a continuation of the failed eight years of W. Barring a complete meltdown of hte economy in the next four years, voters are going to see a nice sandwich picture of two top of the charts economies under Clinton and Obama and a failed economy under W. I really think that the Republicans biggest fear this election is that they know the economy is stoked to roar back in the next couple of years and if occurs under a Dem then they will have lost their running platform of being best for business and growth. Jeb needs t oface the fact that, George W. is a gift that keeps on giving to the Democratic party.

8. It stands for "kicked and recommended" and means

the poster rec'ed your thread (see the DU rec button in the OP) and is kicking it (i.e. moving it back to the top of the forum by posting in it) so others can see it too. It's a quick way to show approval. It's good thing!

And WELCOME to DU!
