The Jeb Bush Surge

Bush_Jeb [1]I don’t get to pick the next President.  Rather all I can do it to support the best alternative.   Such is life.   I am not now, nor expect to be a Jeb Bush fan.   That said, Bush’s emergence been encouraging

Washington (CNN [2]) — Jeb Bush is the clear Republican presidential frontrunner, surging to the front of the potential GOP pack following his announcement that he’s “actively exploring” a bid, a new CNN/ORC poll found.

He takes nearly one-quarter — 23% — of Republicans surveyed in the new nationwide poll, putting him 10 points ahead of his closest competitor, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who tallied 13%.

Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%.

I like that Bush stealing the wind from the RINO crowd, Mitt Romney, Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee, and the kook from Kentucky, Rand Paul.

Addendum, Eric
