This week, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was in Washington, hosting a national summit on education at a hotel right down the street from the White House. But the real buzz was about whether he’d soon move up the street. We’ve had two President Adamses and two Roosevelts, but three President Bushes would be unprecedented. Many people have urged Jeb Bush to run. Even Democrats who vilified his brother admit that Jeb would be a strong candidate. But after seeing the relentless blame and vitriol aimed at his brother, I’d understand if he’s reluctant. Reporters kept pressing him about 2016. He said he was just there to talk about education. He didn’t rule out a presidential run. And the reporters noticed that the summit attendees included Mitt Romney’s pollster. Who knew he was so interested in education?

    Gene Howard, sir....are you serious? Could we discuss the issue without values being involved? God and His values are quite an encumbrance to be sure; but considering that HE is the Architect of the universe and the One whom you will be judged by it does make sense to take Him seriously. To you He is a little god, but to us who have received the Son of God, Jesus the Christ: we know that He is Lord and Savior; our Redeemer.

    Mike, can you please just discuss the issue without bringing god into the question. I do believe in god, but this is not a platform for trying to bring right wing politics into the question. I myself am a republican, but this is not the platform for discussing these views. Ease excuse any spelling or mistakes, I can. It see my screen as I am typing on my phone.

    Re: ...and Jimmy Stewart

    Governor, appreciated your title for this blog. There is something about GW and his brother Jeb. They are likeable men and multi-term governors from huge southern states.

    Nice hint to the pollsters hanging around the Jeb bus. After two consecutive losses, the McCain/Romney pollsters are going to have to keep away a bit from the action to give solid candidates freedom to articulate their solid message.

    We need a candidate who will lead our nation back to it's founding roots--back to God and spoken thankfulness to the Creator who gave us such a free country and who blesses us and protects us when we call out to Him for help.

    Mike Huckabee, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Paul Ryan are good strong, Christian candidates who would protect the rights of families, which our nation was built on.

    The problem is that the political system has become way too powerful. The President was never meant to be the CEO of the country, and he was never meant to take over private companies like General Motors, make them Government Motors, and then fire the CEO, Rick Wagoner. That's crossing the line.

    How do regular families get control of our country back in the hands of the people???
