      never liked Bush the W.  Bush bailed out the banks.  Bush ran up the deficit.  Bush didn't hate brown people enuf, totally let illegal immigration run rampant.

      Can't see them going for Jeb.

    •  He doesn't need them. Romney made a major (2+ / 0-)

      strategic error trying to play to Tea Party types who would never really trust him anyway.

      And -- with the TP crowd, the Bush name has at least a little cachet every time you say "Bush tax cuts".

      Bush is not Romney -- not an empty suit.
      He can draw people to him and let the head cases split votes.

      The question for him is whether the Bush name is too tarnished to run on.  By 2016, with sufficient intervening misery, it may not be so bad.
