The surprise Republican candidate that not many in the know were expecting – except me of course.
Originally posted by Osiris1953IMHO as a Floridian, I think that Jeb did a pretty good job. Compared to Rick Scott, the corrupt stooge who is our current governor, Jeb looks like a god. One thing I cannot forgive Jeb for however, he and his administration has all but destroyed the education system here. FCAT, school vouchers, budget cuts, etc.
With that said, there would still be a decent chance I would vote for him given the opportunity.

Theyv'e done a heck of a job. Just look at our country, and compare it to 30 years ago.
The peak of the recession was in November and December 1982, when the nationwide unemployment rate was 10.8%, highest since The Great Depression. As of 2011, it is still the highest since the 1930s. In November, West Virginia and Michigan had the highest unemployment with 16.4%. Alabama was in third with 15.3%. South Dakota had the lowest unemployment rate in the nation, with 5.6%. Flint, Michigan had the highest unemployment rate of all Metro areas with 23.4%.
By 1979, inflation reached a startling 11.3% and in 1980 soared to 13.5%
The prime interest rate eventually reached 21.5% in June 1982.

Something seriously wrong with that math.
Why not just institute a Monarchy?
