POLL: ROMNEY AND JEB BUSH LEAD GOP FIELD FOR 2016 PRESIDENTIAL BID
"Jeb Bush, who is seriously considering a 2016 presidential bid, has sprinted to the front of the Republican field in a new McClatchy-Marist Poll. Former GOP nominee Mitt Romney remains on top, with Bush, a former Florida governor, a close second. Take away Romney, and Bush leads the field.


(Jeb has always been considered the most politically talented of the Bush Boys. And his marriage to a Hispanic lady - and 2 normal and hard-working sons - are assets, especially in the populous state of Florida he used to govern. Jeb just needs to start buying duct tape now for a certain meddlesome sister-in-law, if he really wants into the Oval Office.)


"The poll also found anxious Democrats increasingly eager to change course from President Barack Obama. Fifty-eight percent of Democrats want a NOMINEE WHO WILL MOVE IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION THAN OBAMA - up 10 percentage points from a year ago.


(Supposedly, Killary still leads the Democratics by "a large margin," which I find hard to believe. Just like the New York Times forgets/buries conservative books for its now-tainted "Best Seller" list, I suspect they are over-stating Hillary's support ...)

Great. Jeb Bush has just tweeted, "excited to announce I will actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States"

So it's shaping up to be Bush v. Clinton. WTF America.

No one except royalty like the Bush's and Clinton's can afford to go through the process. So they are all the same. We stupid americans only admire the very wealthy and will not look beyond paid commercials to other candidates. And doing research is just too much brain muscle so we leave it to MSN and FOX. We do not demand anything from our candidates except the same old rhetoric, amnesty and socialism.

Bush and Clinton should just run together and get it over with.

Not much difference.

Bush and Clinton on the Democrat ticket.

Romney and McCain on the Republican ticket.


All counter productive to the American people.

If this were any other country outside of NATO and the role of President was merely being shared around the same couple of families, questions would start being asked by the U.S.

However, it appears the people are content with living in what can only be described as a Plutocracy.

Best of luck with whoever is chosen.

Killary's health is precarious, so the "smart money" is betting she ultimately won't run:

dailycaller.com...
(Feb. 2014) RUMORS PERSIST THAT HILLARY WON'T RUN: HEALTH MAY BE WORSE THAN DISCLOSED
"In private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns."

(So far, she's dragged her feet declaring herself "in the running" for 2016. Not that she's averse to lying, but let's see if she ever declares, since 2015 is just around the corner. Although her "stealth campaign" may still be collecting donations, since she only "suspended" her 2008 campaign - never formally shut it down.)

She really doesn't need to declare herself yet though. When you think of potential democratic hopefuls she is the number 1 on the list in a lot of people's mind. wait until others declare and then steal their spotlight and momentum. I am sure she doesn't want another Barack Obama coming out of nowhere.

Hillary is washed up, team Obama made sure of that with Benghazi gate. She will just serve as speculative fodder until they unveil some nobody do nothing unqualified community organizer with radical ties to Alinsky.

"Radical ties to Alinksy"

ROFL

Did you even know who Alinsky was before Newt Gingrich and Glenn Beck started dropping his name all over the place? Probably not — most people didn't. Would it interest you to know that George Romney was an associate of Saul Alinsky?

"Hillary is washed up, team Obama made sure of that with Benghazi gate."

I'd like to think so. But Team Obama has steadily been hiring her "future staff" into key positions, like Susan Rice as National Security Advisor in the White House, and Victoria Nuland as #2 at the State Dept. Both are Hillarybots.

And before anyone laughs off Saul Alinsky, check out his Power Tactics - and compare it to the strategy of the Activists now in charge of the lamestream media:

LATE AT NIGHT, CHRISTIE DOING 2016 FOREIGN POLICY HOMEWORK, FOR PRESIDENTIAL RUN
"It's after 9 p.m. on a Sunday night in late November and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is deep into a conference call talking about nuclear weapons and Iran.

"One voice is advocating a hard line, arguing against allowing Iran any capability to enrich uranium. Another summarizes the status of current negotiations and argues that forcing Iran to give up enrichment entirely isn't realistic.

"This is how Christie has spent many of his nights during a year in which he raised record-setting amounts of campaign cash for his fellow Republican governors, and methodically tried to recover from a political scandal involving traffic jams near a New York City bridge.

"Late at night, away from the spotlight of the midterm elections and 2016 speculation, he's been on the phone with some of the brightest foreign policy minds in the Republican Party, getting ready to run for president."

POLL: ROMNEY AND JEB BUSH LEAD GOP FIELD FOR 2016

Seriously Romany and Bush?

And as usual they tank out Rand Paul like his father. The elections are a fraud and circus.

You would love an Republican in the White House. In order to make sure that America has that Bully image yet again.

Hell, after Obama being the worst POTUS of all time, pandering, wavering, cowering, begging or ignoring every problem around the world, I would have thought a guy like you would be in love with the USA by now and moved here.

REPUBLICANS HAVE A "DEEP BENCH" FOR 2016; DEMS HAVE JUST A FEW
"On Sunday on ABC's "This Week," Daily Beast contributor Kristen Soltis Anderson made an amazing statement. She said Republicans "understand that they need to start cultivating new and fresh talent."

"Fascinating. Because the GOP has been cultivating new and fresh talent for years now and is — finally — poised to look to a whole new generation of Republican leaders, quite possibly starting with the 2017 occupant of the White House.

"After the congressional sweep in 2010, Republicans smashed the Democrats in the 2014 midterms. They took so many seats in the House that the party now has the widest majority since the 1940s. Before the elections, pundits predicted Republicans might well take the Senate — they did, sweeping nine seats away from Democrats, which tied 1942 for the fourth-most GOP pickups.

"But there's more: Republicans control 68 out of 98 partisan state legislative chambers — the highest number in party history, according to Real Clear Politics. And in 24 states, they hold the governorship and both houses of the legislature; Democrats have that level of control in just seven states."

10 WHO MIGHT HAVE A (BIG) IMPACT ON 2016 CAMPAIGN

Personally, I'm watching billionaire Sheldon Adelson from Las Vegas. His GOP wish-list is fairly simple, and very common sense:
1) A mainstream Republican "who can win."
2) And NOT belong to the Tea Party.
3) And be a strong supporter of Israel.

He could be the common-sense gravitas the GOP needs to get out of this Only Eastern Ivy-League Elitist Candidates mind-set, and pick a candidate that will appeal to the whole country. (Then all we need is for the Dems to continue falling on their faces, and non-hackable paper ballots in 2016 too.)

GOP CANDIDATES JOSTLING, AHEAD OF REPUBLICANS' WINTER MEETING IN SAN DIEGO

This is from the New York Post, so of course they're focused on eastern candidates, Romney and Christie. But the GOP's top fundraiser, Texan Ray Washburne - who supported George W. when he ran - is ready to back Christie (when/if he declares) instead of Jeb Bush.

So the GOP's winter meeting later this week in San Diego should be a lively event, attended by even more Republicans who might be Dark Horse candidates for the GOP nomination.

It's time ATS!!!

It's time for us to start promoting two different candidates!

Someone on the left to overcome Hillary and someone on the right to overcome Bush...and maybe an independent.

If we all made enough noise, letters, posts, tweets, facebook posts etc we could make some noise....

Anyone? arg...

Someone famous but out of the loop a bit, like Neil Tyson D...not the pauls...their in the loop...not any loony christians like Carson......I can't take anymore of those...I'll take a republican war leader...any generals? Come on@%^&*^(^(*&

Anyone? Besides Romney and Biden who are waiting in the wings if Hillary and Bush don't get the nomination.

We're doomed!
