Hey DUers, How would Jeb Bush play as a VP nominee?

Would the Repugs unite around a Santorum/Jeb ticket or a Romney/Jeb ticket? Could either be a threat to Obama in November?

1. I don't think

Jeb would appeal to the thug base except in the South, but not by enough to be a significant factor. Most conservatives in the south would vote Republican regardless of who is in the VP slot.

2. In this "crap catcher" of a state, (Florida), Jeb is an icon.

The average IQ here is 53 points below average. Guns and drugs and crooked politicians run this place and the majority of the population seems o.k. with it.
Please buy my house so I can move to liberal Kansas, or Texas.

8. i think his 'icon' status in fla is propaganda.

imo, he was the practice for the theft of the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

5. Nope.

First of all the US still has a severe case of Bush fatigue (& I wager Jeb knows it). Secondly, do you really tihnk Jeb will willingly play second fiddle to any one of these nutcases from the GOP clowncar??

Nah. Ol' Jeb's keepin' his powder dry til 2016. If he's gonna make a run at it that's when he'll do it.

$10,000.00? Want to bet $10,000.00?

6. anyone who has two brain cells to rub together

will follow the advice of Reverend AL "Stay out the Bushes!"
I expect I'll be around for a couple more decades and if anyone with the surname Bush gets elected to office I'll know that we have fallen to the state of idiocracy.

7. Don't think so.

The republican nominee would want to finish his first term without dying. (Just sayin' that the BFEE is dormant and not gone.)

10. Why the fixation on Jeb Bush?

The Bush name has been destroyed, sorry, but that is the fact.

11. Not well. Frothy/Jeb or Mittens/Jeb - Sounds like happy hour specials to me.

 

Then again, his brother spent eight years drunk all to hell while playing president under Darth Cheney.
