    Politico's post-mortem:

    “The rules all changed this year. It was all about taking on the establishment,” said a Republican operative close to the Bush family. “When you’re the son and brother of former presidents, the grandson of a U.S. senator, how do you run in a year like this? It is just a year of personality, not message. All of a sudden, there was no path for him. They just kept falling back on his record as governor, which is all he has — and no one gives a shit.

    The problem is that Rubio is still in the race. He might as well be a Bush.

    For the life of me I can't get over the fact that the establishment in the GOP thought he had a chance. I don't care how much money he could raise or how many people from the past he could bring out, nobody was going to vote for him. The press was doing their part propping him up as the front runner from the beginning yet nobody wanted to touch him due to his name. The establishment didn't realize that the majority of the GOP didn't like him due to being a Bush.

    While he wouldn't have had a chance either, the establishment made a mistake backing Jeb over Romney. Remember that Mitt was going to run again but there was a conflict with the donors. They wanted to put their money on Jeb.

    I think the ties within the party are huge and the real people who run the country do not like having a candidate aka Prez who will tell them all to fuck off. I think Trump may need extra security as he keeps winning.

    you know that when even his mother said she thought there had been enough Bushes in the White House that there was an uphill climb for him.

    she came on later to support him, but maybe they should have listened more to the White Haired Sage of Texas...she was right.

    His SuperPac is supposedly punting and not going to support anyone but Jeb financially.

    They might change their mind later on.

    I must admit I thought Reggie Bush would make much more of an impact in the NFL after his stellar career at USC ...

    And let us not forget the band, "Bush". Had hopes for them, but they seemed to be placed in that, "1 hit wonder" category.

    Thanks a lot, Gwen!

    Gavin cheating on Gwen with the nanny (not Fran Drescher, this time) didn't help. Who does he think he is trying "to supplement his marriage" like that? Ben Aflac???

    I donno about Rubio. But the Bush family, again, thought they could buy their way into an election. The have been buying elected offices for decades, and beyond left/right debates, it's totally undermining the democratic process. Is America still a democracy when people are literally buying elections?
    People talk about donors, bundlers and super PACs - they are anti-democratic players that need to be abolished asap. That's one thing I credit Trump with.

    While talking about Bush, I want to post a picture of Black Crowes Amorica cover. However probably would get thread shut down
