Why Not Nominate a Proud Conservative?

If the Republicans had a genuine merit system--and if Florida’s former governor weren’t stuck with his last name, it would be easy to identify the leading candidate for the party’s 2008 presidential nomination. But as things stand, Jeb is the longest of the long shots. With the controversial possible exception of immigration, this man is solid on conservative principle, is a very experienced and successful executive, and has much more than his share of charm, brains, and manliness.

Agreed, heartily agreed.

He is stuck with his last name. A non-starter.

The protesters that were out today wouldn’t even have to make new signs; I don’t think we should make it that easy for them.

If he’s not solid on immigration, then he’s no better than anyone else, IMHO. That’s the issue, and I’m afraid my frustration with the GOP has reached the single-issue stage. Promise the moon and stars, be strong on international issues, even lower taxes, but if you won’t do anything to stop the invasion of our country, then forget you. You won’t get my time, my money, or my vote...period.

Why Not Nominate a Proud Conservative?

I agree. Why not? So everyone will be supporting Ron Paul, right? :-)

No...Paul’s essentially a Libertarian. Not the same thing at all, although I think he is a good man and I’d much prefer him to a number of others. I like his consistency.
