Dangers of Long Distance Prognosticating…

I noted this AM that the folks at “What is Right for Virginia” have extended their net to Florida, bemoaning the possibility of Jeb Bush running for the US Senate from Florida. The key comment:

What could possibly be worse than the eight years of George W. Bush’s presidency? His brother Jeb, running for the U.S. Senate.

There are few that will argue that the Bush presidency has had its…ummm…failings. But in the automatic assumption that all things Bushian are poison certain Democrats will set the table for their own undoing.

For example, by all accounts Jeb carries all the intellectual vigor found lacking in W. He was a successful governor, and left office with 57% approval ratings…ratings he still holds.

I think the only folks in Florida who really need to be worrying about a Jeb Bush for Senate candidacy are…the Democratic opposition. 

I will make a prediction, though…the Democrats will go all out to beat Jeb.  But if they take their shot and fail, they will turn him into a legitimate presidential contender for 2016.


One thought on “Dangers of Long Distance Prognosticating…

    I think you hit the nail on the head with this one, except, I think W has messed things up for his brother from ever being President. This is one time when I hope you are right and I’m wrong .

    [me too, Hoss!]

    Happy New Year to the SWMBO, WMD and of course, you!
