The fact that he was a Governor means he is more qualified than who is in there now and he didn't run his state into the ground.

How could he make a good president, he couldn't get elected.
I never thought I'd miss a president like Bush, but Obowelmovement did the job of forcing me to yearn for the good old days of George Bush. Whoddathunkit?
There isn't going to be a good president until the financial house of the US gov is in order. When diplomacy doesn't mean guns anymore, but investment in foreign nations political and financial well-being is emphasized the goal and armed conflict is avoided.
China doesn't send in armaments when the have foreign policy issues, they bring money, something they've got, and, unfortunately, the US doesn't have any.
Once the US gov has trillions in the bank to invest in good will towards others and not trillions in debt, there will be a good president and not until then.

Holy smokes! China has over two quadrillion dollars and Japan has over one quadrillion dollars in reserve.

China would have over 2 trillion, not quadrillion.

EarlyBird that is trillions not quadrillions.
The first group of numbers is hundreds, not thousands.
Zrider.. Thanks, I stand corrected. I forgot how exponents work in scientific notation. Wow and to think I was a Math Tutor in college and my students all passed with flying colors. Thanks again for the refresher. 100 is 10exp2 1000 is 10exp3.
Could you imagine the over taxation uproar if the US had a 2 trillion dollar reserve? So, it will never happen.
Actually, there is no reason for the Fed. government to have said reserves.
Our State has huge reserves and no one is complaining loud enough to suit me. I wonder what happened to property tax relief?

I can understand the state having some reserves.
The legislature is almost done and I have no idea what they've passed, other than anti-abortion bills. Where is the reporting?
I have a feeling the taxpayers are going to get shafted.
Tax relief??? I just got my notice of my land value increases and their assessed values. Apparently they don't have enough reserves yet.

Staying on topic...I see the Republicans salivating at the thought of Jeb Bush but as usual, their blatant misunderstanding of foreign affairs don't take into account it would set the country back to a Pre-Reagan era...But then again they've been practicing Cold War tactics for the last 5 years and relish the opportunity it may create for the military machine to profit from the taxpayer. Another war for profit may very well be in the geneline so from that perspective it surely is a win/win and they'll try desperately to convince Latinos they have there back while lobbying to keep the minimum wage where it's at.
