    NYT: According to figures from the Sunlight Foundation’s Political Party Time tracker, Mr. Bush has headlined 47 fund-raisers for his Right to Rise political action committee since the beginning of the year. Including fund-raisers for other conservative groups, Mr. Bush has been featured at 63 since January, dwarfing the totals of other likely candidates for the nomination.

    Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin trails Mr. Bush in fund-raising attendance, having headlined 19 this year.

    Good Lord I wish our country could do better than Bush or Clinton. Why must we always fall back on these life long politicians who have nothing to give. We need someone we can talk up instead of replay past failures.

    I agree with you 100%. At least the republican side has some younger, fresh faces. The democratic side looks like a nursing home. I am keeping my options wide open at this point. But one thing I do promise you and you can take this to the bank. I will never, ever support the hapless Hillary ho for President. She is only out for her own self aggrandizement and lining her already over stuffed pockets with huge gobs of money. She doesn't give a flying fuck for the American people.

    I think she would be a terrible choice. Given what Obama has done to destroy our diplomatic relations, I can only imagine what a train wreck she would be. And think about this....she would be in command of our military!

    Bush destroyed our international standing and diplomatic relations. Obama has restored what Bush destroyed.

    You clearly do not travel internationally, nor do you have any friends internationally. You're literally saying the opposite of the truth that even conservatives have conceded.

    The only thing you can now say (unfairly) is that Obama has "hurt" our relationship with Israel. And even that's pushing it.

    The GOP establishment seems to have anointed Jeb, but things are about to get very interesting because the tea-publicans hate him with a passion.
    He is not anti-Latino enough for them, and they will never vote for him.
    I doubt Jeb can get the nomination, and if he does, there will likely be a third-party extreme right-wing candidate who the tea party will rally behind.
    (If that happens, the GOP vote is divided and both conservative candidates are sunk.)
    The GOP is basically at war with itself, and this election will bring it all to a head.

    The Democrats goal is 51% Once they get it we have reached the tipping point as a country. You get 51% of people that take instead of make. The problem is that Many Americans didn't like that idea so much and the last election we made Obama a lame duck President. The Dems have to lie and make Hillary different from Obama but her past is making that impossible. She might get in but if she does she may be a lame duck from the beginning of her term.

    You are so delusional. So far out of your element. I travel widely and consistently read international sources and speak with friends in different countries. They do not like Obama.
