With the flip of a Facebook switch, Mr. Bush, the former governor of Florida, disclosed the formation of a full-time political apparatus that can begin raising money with an eye toward 2016 and laid out a campaign rationale that was striking for its emphasis on big, knotty, bipartisan concepts like immigration overhaul and



“We will not cede an inch of territory — no issues, no demographic groups, no voters,” he wrote in a statement on the website of his new organization, called Right to Rise. To emphasize the point, and showcase his social media savvy, Mr. Bush appeared on a cellphone video Tuesday speaking both English and Spanish.
No said running for President is easy. Like most of us who watch more closely, I would be interested in his polices going forward and for that matter of fact, all of them.

I am really cautious of Christy. NJ has really bad gun laws and high taxes to boot. I am not will to expand Gov. more than it is already.

The Early Go I leaning Perry. Just have to see!

Nah, Mitty was deported by Bush. The Republican party is toast, despite their recent electoral victory. That's the last hurrah, that's it. Finito. Republicans can try with all their might, but they're done. After GWB, I say good riddance to bad rubbish.

The Big Question and concern of the voters will be action beingg done in DC. The ball in the hands of the GOP. It is up to the GOP to make a difference and set the party for a Conservative President.

Yes, we'll have to see, but the GOP is already snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, as only the GOP can, lol. It's pathetic, really. Anyway, they really have nothing for me anymore, if they ever even did.

That doesn't mean I have any love for the dem party, although if Jim Webb runs, he's got my vote.

Mitty? My first thought when I saw this is that it might be a reference to Walter Mitty. You libs are devolving into gibberish.

LOL @ toast. The GOP won control of the House, now the Senate (by a solid margin), have a majority of state governors, and even state legislatures. But we are toast. Yeah, right.

Lol @ libs. They don't call it the stupid party for nothin'. Love that cronybus, they handed O everything he wanted, cowering all the way. And then had another boner. The repubs have a nasty habit, as I said, of turning victory into defeat. In these last lame duck years, they'll be so afraid of being considered "obstructionist", they'll dance to the tune that the media calls.

Yep, I like Webb too, even if he does seem like a sorta 'long shot' against the "Hillary Sense of Inevitability". One sorely-needed thang I think he really brings to the the Dems, is the ability to effectively communicate with blue collar folks, whom Libs have too often ceded to the GOP.

LOL, and the GOP keeps trying to cede them back to the Libs. Nobody wants 'em, but they're the ones who decide elections, in the long run. I think Webb wants 'em, and he's already indicated this in his interview on Yahoo.

The dems would be blowing a big chance if they ignore or trash Webb, IMO. I'll be interested to see what happens here.

Agreed. Webb has crossover appeal. Like Huntsman or Olympia Snowe on the other side. Clinton has limited appeal to the base, and zero appeal outside it.
