While the 2016 election is still a few years away, the pundits have long been engaged in speculating about the two candidates that will face off in 2016. Naturally, no one takes the idea that there might be a viable third candidate very seriously. At best, a third candidate can siphon votes away from one of the two party anointed (like Ralph Nader did to Al Gore).

For the Democrats, the name that has the most conjuring power is Hilary Clinton. While she ran in 2008 and did well, a deal was struck that enabled Obama to take the White House. Hilary was rewarded with the Secretary of State position and then departed-perhaps to allow time for her to move out of the blast radius of political attacks on the President. After all, second term presidents tend to sink badly in the polls and no wise politician wants to be pulled down in that whirlpool.

For the Republicans, there was some talk about Chris Christie. However, he has damaged his brand by consorting a bit with Obama and is still trying to avoid being labeled as the troll under the bridge. Or, rather, the troll that closed the bridge. The latest name is an old name, that of Bush. Jeb, who apparently was supposed to be president rather than George II, has been getting considerable media attention lately. While Jeb Bush would seem to have conservative bona fides, he runs into a few problems. The first is that many folks are still not very happy with the last Bush in office. The second is that he is strongly associated with the Common Core and that has become a target of the Tea Party. This leads to a third problem-he seems to be a moderate Republican (perhaps even liberal by the current standards). As such, he will face a challenge in wooing the Tea Party-especially with strong competition from the current Tea Party crushes.

Interestingly, Bush’s mother would prefer that he not run for president: “He’s by far the best-qualified man, but no. I really don’t,” Mrs. Bush told Matt Lauer when asked if she wanted to see Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, make a White House bid. “I think it’s a great country, there are a lot of great families, and it’s not just four families or whatever. There are other people out there that are very qualified, and we’ve had enough Bushes.”

While I would disagree with him being the best-qualified man (although her wording leaves it open that there is a better qualified woman), I do agree that there are other qualified people and that the country has had enough Bushes. One reason for this is the concern that America is supposed to be a democracy and the idea of a few (two in this case) families holding such control over the presidency does seem to run a bit counter to the spirit of democracy. That said, if enough people do actually want Hilary Clinton or Jeb Bush for president, then that would be democratic-the mere fact that they have had such a lock on politics should, perhaps, not disqualify them. Obviously, there is no actual law against this sort of dynasty building, so the disqualification would be moral rather than legal. That is, though they surely could run, they should not.

So, should it be Clinton vs. Bush in 2016?

    Presidents get a lot of air time. We need someone we can tolerate on TV for 8 years.

    I think we need to draft Jay Leno.

      Obongo: Special Pet Of Queers, Ho Ho Ho

      Presidents get lots of air-time?–ho ho ho–perhaps, but question is WHY, how?–Pres. is just a “player,” a front-man, a spokes-flack–for someone, whoever.

      Obongo is still effective for blacks, and some youth, but esp. homosexuals, he being their foremost hero, without any doubt, homos being foremost worshippers of the Jew-tube.

      Others are effective spokes-flacks for such as the “Judeo-Christian” hereticalists, as W. Bush was for a while, till it became too obvious he was just putrid devil-worshipping queer for Jews, etc.–u’re certainly right they (spokes-flacks) tend to wear out after a while.

      Obongo continues as the homosexuals are sooooooooooooo incredibly, un-endingly stupid, I swear to God.

      Maybe Fox News is not really what people like Mike say it is?

        Mike: Most Pathetic Prisoner Of ZOG

        FOX is neo-con, through-and-through, Israel-first–I think Mike understands quite well. Jews are the gate-keepers of Western civilization, poor brainless, over-populated goyim being mere prisoners/inmates, Jews controlling the money machines, including the manufacturing plant, the US Fed (see below).

        False paradigm consists of Jew-led, nowadays extremely uppity homosexuals heading the phony “left,” Israel-first neo-cons on the phony “right” to which are still connected lots of libertarian-types. More and evermore gentiles grasp the futility of this charade. Libertarians are also pathetically subject to Jew money.

        Given Mike’s public position–official thought-controller–he MUST practice, or at least preach the “religion,” hence the politically-correct, Jew-friendly party-line; otherwise he risks losing that easy-money, his entire life shattered.

    Present Criminal Oligarchy Will Continue Till Definitive Collapse Of US Dollar

    Unfortunately Mike, u refuse to facing-up to the criminal nature of the US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) which is literally just legalized COUNTERFEITING the so-called “money”-supply. The Fed fraud rules all, and USA is ruled by criminals, the Bushes merely a well-known crime family going way back. Prescott Bush, US Senator fm Connecticut in the 50s, for example, father of George H.W., was close partner w. noneother than A. Harriman and helped to arm Germany before WWII.

    For what good is it to study politics, but to knowing so little about economics? This is end of the post-WWII era, US Dollar about to tanking in hyper-inflation, the other countries of the world leaving the Dollar as reserve-currency system.

    “Democracy”?–u insult our intelligence (even the little we may have, hoh o hoh oho)–that’s just a sham, a cover–what RULES is a criminal oligarchy, as I note above, fronted in all seriousness by Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Trilateralists, and Bilderbergers. Did u hear about the Jew, Adelson, holding his recent “primary” in Las Vegas?–see http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/03/28/republicans-court-mega-donor-adelson-during-vegas-weekend/.

    So it really looks like we’re doomed long as people accept US Dollar for payment for goods and svcs–only when Dollar collapses w. real patriots have any kind of a hope–even then, Jews, et al., own most of the gold/silver and other assets, and they’ll just fall-in behind another shabbat-goy willing to front for them, pretending to Christianity, etc.

    Presently Ron and Rand Paul are the only hope as opposition to the Jew-criminal oligarchy, even though the Pauls themselves have to pay lip-service to Jews and Israel, and the “electorate” are surely going to continue playing the stupid game as the bread & circus system continues, as we observe.
