    The popular former Florida governor also offered up his pick for Romney's running mate, and said he'd consider a spot on the GOP ticket if asked.

    Oh GOD NO! Never another Bush in the White House! NEVER!!!

    Make sure you plan to get to the polls, people!

    Stay out the Bushes!

    NO PLEASE NO MORE OF THE BUSH CRIME FAMILY !!

    One real close look at their history, then after 'Dubya's' reign of cowboy wars and what in hell would we want another one of them lieing crooks in
    Washinton for? Are Americans really that godamn stupid ?

    2000 to 2008 should have taught us something, after all this hella bad economy started with 'Dubya', Obama may own a large share of it now, but it started with 'Dubya', which cannot be denied .

    I don't think it will happen, but I'd be fine with it and he'd probably be a wonderful V.P.

    Plan on your hopes being dashed OLD GEEZER, because the public will not accept another damn Bush Family Crime member.

    What's your christian fundi bible tell you ? "VISITING THE INIQUITIES OF THE FATHERS TO THE SONS UNTO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATIONS" So if ever you believed that god authored your bible, this is the time to do it in regards to the 'BUSHES'. OLD GEEZER, doncha love it when your own beliefs come back to bite your ass. ? LOL

    I still think he'd be overall my number one choice, but I agree, I don't think it will happen. I mean if he had any desire at all, he could have had the nomination. Why settle for VP?

    My top 3 choices would be:

    - Jon Hunstman

    - Conde´ Rice

    - Jeb Bush

    But neither one is likely though all 3 would be extremely qualified and probably a stellar V.P.

    You and I don't agree 100% too often, but we sure do on this one. And my order would be

    1) Bush
    2) Huntsman
    3) rice

    I still think the successful administrative experience as a two term governor has huge practical advantages.

    Jon Huntsman is pretty clean, but why would you pick Rice or another Bush, they've both got baggage from hell and that is ties the Bushies of 2000 to 2008, what is it that your not getting about the mess that period of time put the US in ? Rice was right in the middle of it and the lies that led us to war, and Jeb is a Bush, Americans don't want another one.

    Whoever he chooses, it is going to have to be someone with a shitload of integrity (Rice perhaps), because he has none.

    Mr. Romney should unite his party and choose Mr. Santorum.

    Yes, Romney should choose Bush. His name will be baggage with Independents, while Republicans will question why names on the ticket are not reversed.

    This will elevate Romney from a probably loser, into the realm of slam dunk loser status.

    Hopefully whoever they choose will have lots of comedy value like last time.

    Where's the fun in picking someone credible with a brain.

    When you can pick a loon who will drop themselves in it at every opportunity.

    yes. Which is why all the "obama is a socialist" crap is risible. America has no idea what socialism is.

    Europe is a grouping of 50 sovereign nations, so it is rather difficult to define their political standards by a single definition.

    Yes he is because his spine got 'clipped' by the far right swing brought to us by TBaggers and Obama went their way.

    We agree again !!

    Oh sure. Great choice.

    His father was such a lousy president he got kicked out of office after his first term and couldn't even get 40% of the vote.

    His brother, clearly an incompetent, brought a once-healthy country to its knees after eight miserable years of his worthless governance--"highlights" including but not limited to the following:

    --He initiated and presided over the near-destruction of our economy;

    --Dragged us to war on false and arguably treasonous pretenses (and spent $2+ trillion in the process along with 5,000 U.S. troops);

    --Doubled our national debt;

    --Destroyed our basic rights to privacy--now the government can tap our phones and read our e-mails;

    --Decimated our middle class, now rapidly on its way to serfdom.

    Really--enough of the Bushes.

    We agree two times this morning.


    Note though that Paul would get my vote mainly over his very smart foreign policy which includes an end to interventionism, which would result in far less 'blowback' terrorism which would save us even more money and lives.

    Ending our US habit of Israeli favoritism would also have the same result as above and bring peace to the middle east, because the US is an enabler to Israel's mistreatment of its neighbors,

    Ron Paul's hands off Social issues is another good factor. but since this is a pipe dream Obama will get my vote

    Exactly. Ask anybody that owns a business. Thanks to Bush, they're now unpaid employees for a host of governmental agencies, being forced to check up on their customers and employees.

    Republicans being business friendly is long gone. Republicans only help people who live off investment income. Everybody else is a dirt bag.

    THUMBS UP TO YOU !!! Thankfully I'm not alone in my well reasoned distaste for the Bush Crime Family. By the way RJ'rs, put those 3 words in a Google Search and you too will see the light about the bush's

    realifedad saidbut why would you pick Rice....


    You mean, other than the fact that she is one of the brightest woman in America and thus more than qualified and I trust her and feel confident she would do a tremendous job? Do I need more reasons?

    Well, that may be YOUR opinion (and others here) but I'm not convinced that being a "Bush" is necessarily a deal-breaker for Jeb Bush. Regardless, I do agree that it is a risky enough choice that it has the potential to backfire, and for that reason I don't think Romney would make such a choice --- that is UNLESS extensive polling they do on Jeb Bush turns up surprisingly solid numbers. Just because Jeb Bush is a Bush does not mean he would not be a fine V.P.

    I think Huntsman/Paul makes more sense
