Did you actually expect Dubya and Pappa Bush to back somebody else?

My above two posts were not about that.

They were about why Jeb Bush should not be counted out because he is going to have more donation money than any other candidate, by a country mile.

If you weren't so blinded by your Tom Joad hate, which I welcome by the way, you might have picked up on that instead of just taking a cheap shot at me.

I don't hate you TJ, but I find your constant barrage of coarseness distracts from whatever it is you're trying to say.

Zombie Candidates Say The Darnedest Things.....somebody grab a hammer quick!

Here is a zombie candidate...someone who is unpopular and has not chance in hell of being nominated and who before Citizen's United would have been out of the game ages ago...but thanks to the Supreme Court can last on super pac funds until well past Super Tuesday.

"Zombie candidates," yes. Walking dead, and still seeking to get at your brains.

They literally made trillions of dollars as civilian defense contractors, wall street bankers, and big pharma executives, etc. And as a result of his tax cuts, they were able to keep almost all of it.

These people are now flush with more cash than any no ordinary human can even imagine. That $100 million that they have put into his Super Pac is no more to them than when you or I chuck our spare change into the Salvation Army bucket at Christmas time. There's plenty more where that came from.

If this election can be bought, it will be bought for Jeb Bush.
I think you are right...I think the bumbling, mild mannered professorial facade hides a meaner person underneath. I say this because he is comfortable with the term anchor baby.

When your opponent forces you to change your original game plan, that's not a good sign.
