Re: I've often wondered
I think Jeb Bush's staff cocked this one up.
That man is no idiot. Neither is his father. His brother.... yeah well, there's always one. Jeb Bush is certainly dangerous and probably going to win the US presidency (because Americans don't have hereditary offices or royal families or aristocracy and I may stop laughing eventually).....
George Bush was good at appealing to "the common man" - ie, idiots. He actually had charisma, people liked him. People like Jeb too. Jeb is George and Cheney all rolled into one. Well, maybe not as evil as Cheney but that's hard to quantify.
