MIAMI BEACH –Jeb Bush told donors here that he believed his political action committee had raised more money in 100 days than any other modern Republican political operation, according to those who heard him.

www.nytimes.com...

I would have thought that the idea of another Bush, to be vitriol and unlikely, yet, there we see another Bush, with the real possibility of winning an election.

My question is to our cousins in the US, regarding the virtually effectual possibility of buying of yourself a presidency. How do people feel about this? To me, it seems that it allows for the possibility of the already rich, (and less likely to truly be on the Left i.e. a true socialist) to be able to buy ultimate power. In the UK, we don't see a truly Left at all, in the US. We see only those on the Right, and the Centre. You appear to have no Left at all.

I wonder if, as a result of decades of active anti-Communism, that the US is too scared to even look Left. What do you think?

I think that there is nothing we do that makes a difference one way or another..vote..don't vote..the same people will always make it to power..ultimately I don't think one single american has a voice any longer..If you read through the comment section on any news board you will see that so many people will say NONE of the above when asked who they want in the white house..we have lost control..it's out of our hands..

I didn't vote in the last election--and will never vote again...it's all rigged to favor the rich and I am not part of their group.

All that money can't change
an infamous last name that low information
voters won't pull a lever for. At least not in the next 100 years.

Low information voters will only remember Middle Eastern War 3 times
Terrorism, the TSA, economic collapse and Cheneys crooked smile.
Then they'll remember their bank accounts in 1999 and vote for Hillary.

I don't like either dynasty but of the two it's no contest.
A soiled dress vs end times scenarios?
I guess I'm a low information voter.

I disagree...corporations that donated to this...errr..."fund raising"...surely have a vote. If you didn't donate...you don't have a vote.

The duality of american politics is designed to pit the people against each other so they don't focus on the real problem, i.e., the government. Both sides of the same coin.

The politicians also use it to put on a show of infighting to keep worthwhile measures from actually helping the people. After all aren't they supposed to represent the people instead of infighting each other?

As far as that, the real questions is how much is he going to steal?

Record amounts…

This isn't surprising at all.

The 1% know which party will help them the most.

Um, actually we have a very strong left, and a very strong right, and they bicker back and forth constantly. What we don't have is a strong center. That's what we need.

I understand The Bank of International Betterments is backing Jeb. There is a reason Jeb must be President in 2016.

Too scared to look Left???

What do you call 8 years of Obama?
People have had enough of the Lefts blame America first approach.
There is going to be a reckoning in more wars because of weak foreign policy down the road.
Peace through strength, disaster through weakness. The left fully embraces weakness witnessed by their neglect of the military, their diplomacy and the rise of extremism which coincides with their turn at the helm.

Failure is failure, hope and change was someone else's idea of hope and change, it is time to shore up the bulkheads and start repairing the damage that has been done.

Do you ever have an original thought or is everything that rolls around in your head straight from Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the hardcore Conservative drones?

President Jeb. Let that sink in...
For a progeny of a wealthy New England family he sure has a hillbilly assed name. His brother played cowboy in Texas. Fun stuff.

Right...

Afghanistan and Iraq, that the Bush's started, worked out well eh? You have no credibility left after your MJ fiasco.

Don't let your ideology get in the way of your common sense...

I'm not a fan of Jeb Bush, per say, and see him further left than G.W..

The election isn't the deciding point, from what I can see. it's the primaries in each party. TPTB have funded Jeb well. It is a major hurdle to overcome.

Pending Walker entering the fray, if he even does, I support Cruz.

I believe there is a potential winning strategy that might trump the power dollars that the Republican Establishment have accrued. Be it Cruz or Walker, if the Tea Party side wants to win what it has to do is meet with the power people in the establishment and state that they intend to run for President whether or not they win the Republican nomination!

Put the Perot gambit into play. "Support me or be assured a democrat win as I will draw enough votes off of your republican candidate that your guy loses. Me or whomever is nominated on the left....

It might work.

The Tea Party will not be effectual with all the Koch money being spent on Rubio.

Money is the life blood of politics.

Bush has this nomination all sewn up!

Citizens united was the proverbial nail in the coffin for American politics. Those with the most money are the ones that have a chance at being elected and the deepest pockets are corporate so the politicians are in their pocket.

It doesn't matter if it is the left or right that wins because in the end they are both owned by corporate America.

I disagree. Even the Koch brothers can see what a third candidate would do to the election process. Rubio is closer to the Tea Party than Jeb.

Rubio's error was supporting Obama's immigration policy, probably due to internal ethnic pressure. If he corrects that, he might be a better choice than Jeb Bush.

I kind of like the attitude of the Koch Brothers. Rather than caving to the pressures of the left like Gates and Buffet, they've given TPTB the middle finger!

Besides the right needs some power support even if only to counter the much more insidious machinations of the Soros crowd....

I think he was referring to the difference in Political Cultures from our Country to his. I can tell you as a frequent traveler between the US and UK that he indeed is correct to a certain extent(depending on your perspective) you can easily say the US has "no left" from a UK perspective or the UK has "No right" from a US perspective.

The UK has three Major Parties, Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democratic.

Their Conservatives are more like our Moderate Democrats, their Labour are more like our Liberal Democrats and their Liberal Democrats are more like our Communists.

Our Republicans are seen by the UK as "Extreme right" (even the more moderate Republicans)

So From a UK perspective they see Republicans as Extreme Right and our Democrats as their version of Conservatives. I.E "No left"

I'd say your assessment was spot on. Canada would be similar to the British views.

As a member of that 'extreme right', I'd say we generally look with favor towards both, but tend to ignore the political views emanating from either...

From your response, I hit the mark dead on.

The failure of your left wing's turn at the helm exposed all their philosophy as detrimental to the human race let alone our country. It has you coiled for defensive outburst because you know the fat lady has sung with the final curtain drawing near on liberal follies for a while.

At least we can say the US put on kid gloves and it didn't work, now it is time for the professionals to man the controls. When Obama clears out his JV practice squad, the world can start recovering.
