Jeb Bush Favored Over Marco Rubio for President, According to Poll

Me fer President? Er mer gerr!

The election was literally six days ago (well, OK, two days ago if you count Florida), and Florida Republicans are butthurt about the results.

So the fine folks at Public Policy Polling thought it would be a neat idea to exploit that GOPer melancholy and the infinite sadness and ask them to look four years into the future and tell everyone who will be president.

The PPP found that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush leads Marco Rubio 28 percent to 22 percent as to who will definitely, without a doubt, for sure is going to be the next president of the United States of America -- as soon as that Kenyan Mooslim stops ruining things.

The poll surveyed 624 Florida Republicans.

For some inexplicable reason, there's a crapload of people out there who wanted Jeb! to run for president this year.

Even Jeb! himself thought about it for a minute, then kind of sort of hinted that it's too late for him.

But with Republicans starting the official Is It Four Years Already? Countdown, it's not at all shocking that both Jeb! and Rubio will be the biggest names bandied around to make a run for the highest office in the land and make the White House white again.

Especially with Chris Christie now being hated by GOPers because of his newfound BBF Barack Obama, after the two actually worked together to help thousands of people in New Jersey affected by Hurricane Sandy. Only 59 percent of Florida Republicans like Christie, according to the poll.

Stupid Christie. Now ya done blown your chance at being president! Hope you and Obama are happy together!

But who else is there?

Apparently, no one gets Florida GOPers' nipples harder than diamond cutters more than Jeb! and Marco.

Both Bush and Rubio score the highest in the favorability question, with Charisma Boy edging out Jeb! 88 percent to 85 percent.

But Bush gets the nod as the frontrunner.

For the record, Condoleezza Rice got an 85 percent likable score (more than Rick Santorum, Sara Palin, and Mike Huckabee).

But since she's a woman and African-American, we're gonna go ahead and say she has no shot at the whole president thing in the eyes of the GOPZ.

Oh yeah, they already said it (8 percent). DERP.

"Butt Hurt" Where did this guy learn to write articles? Jr. High?


Please stop with the polls, election garbage, etc.  We are so sick of politics after the recent election that we could barf.  Give us at least a three year and 11 month break!!!!!!!

no one wants to be reminded of the resulting financial meltdown after the Bush years.  Jeb would have to change his name for any chance at all.  And maybe after 4 more years, everyone will have forgotten pants-on-fire marco's close association to criminal Rivera. unless more dirt turns up by then

as for rubio by 2016 he will still be a piker with the training wheels still on AND the next generation latinos are DEMs unlike their parents and before who were greatful to ronald reagan


the neo-hispanics won't know who ronald reagan was and rubio will have by then have made unsavory GOP connections with uber-GOP kingmaker KARL ROVE and have had to prove his right winged conservative voting habits (like voting AGAINST the dream act, public funded contraception, oBaMaCARE and row v wade) in order to procure their support


in other words RUBIO will have to convince the eleven CONFEDERATE states that are still fighting the CIVIL WAR that he can WIN it for them to bring back the REAL beverly hillbillies with coon hunts and sunday sermons with LIVE snakes


said another way......rubio is toast

JEBs wife, who knew better as a mature adult, during an american fiscal crisis, outright LIED to customs agents while bringing back from spain $250,000 worth of new, but UNDECLARED haute-couture dresses (so much for supporting the "made in america" label - huh ?)  to EVADE taxes on imports (that's not legally "avoid" but criminally evade) - strike ONE - a wife who knowingly commits felony YET has the influence of the family name to sweep it into the BUSHes


his daughter, who cannot know of the consequences of her own actions because she is such a drug manic addict, has and will continue to perform stunts that make lyndsay lohan blush and embarrass charlie sheen - strike TWO - (although the daughter is a mess, and YES otherwise,  that's HER personal business, unfortunately, it DOES make it PUBLIC business when her father is running for the highest PUBLIC office in the land)


and of course - strike THREE - is brother dubbya, who so screwed up america that GEORGE W couldn't even show his face at the GOP convention, nor stump for ROMNEY anywhere in the country, passed over as a stateman by an empty chair of clint eastwood's - by 2016 we will see fully what a $4,7oo,ooo,ooo,ooo boondoggle IRAQ was and the loss of $2,5oo,ooo,ooo,ooo of revenue in the BUSH era tax cuts that didn't trickle down, and how better we could have used those trillions in resources for a multitude of other necessary items


by that time, JEB will not be conservative enough to carry the right of the GOP anyhow, and other shiney objects will leap-frog over him,  appealing to all the RED STATE nutcases, like a hermain cain,  or silly airheads like a michele bachmann or a sarah palin,  or even a rush limbaugh impersonator, will win the day by 2016 for republicans
