Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Why Jeb Bush isn’t Running

I figured that the next President Bush in waiting, little brother Jeb Bush, was just waiting for 2016.  But it looks like he has other reasons for not being in the mix for 2012: he can’t find the right party.  Here’s what he had to say last week in a speech in Texas:

I used to be a conservative and I watch these debates and I’m wondering, I don’t think I’ve changed, but it’s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people’s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective

And don’t miss Maureen Dowd‘s observations on how still other Republicans are seeing a new definition for the Ghastly Outdated Party.
