Oh, just wait...this will be fun.
THAT'S interesting! Do you have more details?

It shows how few options that the Republican Party has in 2016 that it has to go back to this family a third time.

It's sad this party has fallen this far.
It's not sad to me, I hope the Republican party crashes and burns. Now, if the same thing could happen to the Democratic party, that would be icing on the cake.

I'm not sure I understand your analogy.

Last time I checked, only one Kennedy has been president and I'm not aware of any members of the family being potentially in the running for POTUS in the future.

I'm not certain the critics of what Jeb Bush has said about the path to citizenship, and the immigration reforms being discused, have read his remarks completely. I have, and I agree with more of what he's saying than disagree. In particular, the illegal aliens should go to the very back of the line of applicants and they should be either denied permission to bring in relatives or that opportunity should be severely restricted.

Yup.
Good candidates and rotten candidates both abound, and both Houses are full of both always.
It's only the Presidential candidates that our entire public gets to decide. And only the Presidential candidates have to learn how to sell themselves out of their home territory. That's a little harder and a little different than appealing to only the people they came from.

If the GOP had even half brain they would clearly recognize the "BUSH" brand is Highly TOXIC and avoid it at all costs.

The problem is they don't have half a brain and they seem detirmined to commit political suicide on a weekly basis.

You would really think that in a nation of over 300 million people there should be lots of young, smart and capable conservatives coming up to replace all this dead wood the GOP has decaying away just filling seats. I have seen extremely lottle evidence of anything like that at all.

A GOP candidate doesn't necessarily equate to a Conservative candidate, just as a Democratic candidate doesn't necessarily equate to a Liberal or Progressive candidate.

There isn't much difference between the Bush agenda and the Clinton-Obama agenda.

If you don't see an analogy between the Bushes as a Republican family and the Kennedys as a Democrat family, I don't know what to tell you.
