From the Herald, Howie's column...he did a phone interview with The Donald. [rofl] He BOMBS Kerry [rofl]

http://www.bostonherald.com/news_op...carr_the_donald_s_nothing_if_not_entertaining

mentioned his contributions to a whole host of dodgy New York pols, like Gov. Elliot Spitzer, aka “Client No. 9.” He chuckled. And Rep. Anthony Weiner, the sexting “Carlos Danger.”

“Until he got caught with his stupidity and his sickness — because he’s a sick guy — I probably even supported Weiner, because you know what, he was going to be the next mayor of New York. … When I’m a businessman, I’ve gotta get along with everybody. So you make contributions, and that’s part of the problem.”

On Juan Ellis Bush: “I think he is probably a nice person, but I don’t think we can use nice people anymore. … Frankly, Bush is not going to bring us to the promised land.”

On the secretary of state: “We have Kerry going out and participating in bicycle races at 73 years old, falling and breaking his leg. This is our chief negotiator? So it’s a very sad thing, Howie.”

On Hillary Clinton: “We have people chopping off everybody’s head in the Middle East, we have ISIS going crazy, we have all the crime on the border … and Hillary Clinton says, ‘I don’t like Donald Trump’s tone.’ ”

A new national poll was out yesterday showing Trump on top, with 17 percent to Bush’s 14 percent.

Actually they are all over Rand. He is the most targeted person by the dems. Followed by two people most everyone here hates: Christie and Bush.

Trump isn't even being mentioned by the party apparatus.

Agreed they don't care about trump, in fact I think they would be thrilled with running against him.

The numbers in the article you posted can be deceiving. Some tweets, etc are fundraising stuff and rand and cruz both have stopped legislation in filibusters. I think some of their numbers are inflated by a few events. Also, many of christie's mentions were probably based on the so called scandel bridge gate.

I think the ones they don't want to face are rand, rubio and walker. They have a little concern with jeb but not much. Bush and everyone but those 3 have some major negatives which could be exploited. Jeb would be stronger if his name were different.

I think it hilarious that Trump is on top and driving liberals and the GOP nuts.

But how the hell does anyone think Jeb! is the next best thing? [sad2]
I'm convinced that Jeb is being pushed as a contender by the left. They're salivating at the prospect of any of their candidates going against anyone with the last name Bush.

Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said “Mexico is sending”— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.

She is desperate, she is sad, and she is obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled given the absolute accuracy of my statement. She speaks about “my tone” and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice— it’s about being competent.

Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that JEB is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump.
Typical Liberal Scum fashion, Hillary has her ass handed to her and then brings out the race card.... Its the same old same old with these people.

If he were the same person, W's brother but had a different last name, he'd be a 2%. How many people are paying attention now in NH? Not a ton. Well how many are in TX or CA or OR where their primaries are almost a yr from now? It's all name ID, people know trump and bush but a senator from KY like rand, outside KY they have not idea who he is.

He had a good record as gov. I do not like his stance on imigration or common core now and I don't like his attitude which seems to be willing to compromise. But even if he were better on a few issues, I would not consider him because of the legacy thing. It is not good for the country to have 3 from the same family in less than 25 yrs.

His record as gov grew Florida government insanely. Just what we need another big government Bush!

For a remark that is supposedly about describing Jeb’s disagreements with his brother’s presidency, there’s an awful lot of hedging here.

Notice, for example, the way that Jeb Bush attempts to limit his brother’s responsibility for the rise in spending under his watch by first saying broadly that “Republicans” were the ones spending too much money, and then noting that Bush II didn’t have the power to go through budgets line-by-line. And then check out the move-on-nothing-to-see-here wrap-up line, which comes across as a half-hearted attempt to insist that, sure, whatever responsibility his brother may have had for ramping up government spending and public debt, it’s not really worth worrying about now because President Obama has been ever so much worse. As they say: to be sure!

Actually, let’s spend a little bit of time dwelling on the federal government’s spending under President George W. Bush, and how it compares to other presidents. Go back to the end of 2009, when data for Bush’s last year as president was released, and it’s immediately clear that the Bush administration set records for both spending levels and spending increases. Under Bush, total federal spending increased from $1.8 trillion to a little more than $3.5 trillion. That means he presided over the most significant increase in federal spending since Lyndon B. Johnson was president in the 1960s.

The record of increase is important, because it paved the way for the big spending of the Obama years. Yes, President Obama has spent more than President Bush every year—and it’s been too much on every occasion. But federal spending under Obama has increased at a far slower rate than under President Bush. Obama took Bush’s baseline and built on it, but George W. Bush’s spending increases were a big part of what made Obama’s spending possible. So while Jeb Bush is right that deficits went up astronomically under Obama (they’ve also come back down quite a bit, at least temporarily), he’s not on strong ground when he says that “spending went up astronomically” under the current president, at least in terms of the amount of increase. Spending went up astronomically under George W. Bush, and then stayed high, too high, under President Obama.

It’s nice, of course, to see that Jeb Bush has chosen to single out runaway spending and bad budgeting as a problem for Republicans in Washington, D.C. during the last time they controlled the White House, but it shouldn’t be dismissed in favor of an exclusive focus on Obama-era fiscal foul-ups.

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush’s theoretical commitment to spending restraint should probably be questioned a little given his own budgetary record during the Bush years: Between 1999 and 2007, when Jeb Bush was governor of Florida, general fund spending in the Sunshine State rose 57 percent, from $18 billion to $28.2 billion, and total spending grew 45 percent, according to data from the National Association of State Budget Officers, as the Cato Institute’s Chris Edwards noted last year. The libertarian think tank gave him a C grade for his final year in office, noting his propensity for both cutting taxes and letting spending grow.

So, Jeb Bush's record is one of tax cuts paired with spending increases. That sounds rather familiar, doesn’t it?

The proper course of action is "tax cuts paired with spending reductions." Rand's plan has that. I'm sure a couple other candidates will have a similar plan (though not as dramatic since Rand wants to basically abolish the IRS).

But Bush's record will go against any plan he touts.

I like rubio, walker and rand. I like a few others to some degree but the all have issues where I could not support them. Bush is right there with hucabee as someone who I hope drops out, the sooner the better.

The details of the budget in FL matters. The numbers there change quickly because the get about 1 million new residents a yr. They also had that yr with 4 major hurricanes '05 i think. But i have no doubt jeb would be a big govt guy.
