sadly; but not surprisingly Jeb Bush, former popular governor of
has declined to run for the 2010 Senate seat of our fair state.
I mean –
leaving the governor’s mansion, joining what has become roiling cesspool of
congressional politics – to whit: the

Media (MSM) continues to tell us how unpopular the President is without any
reference to congress’ even more dismal fairing!
And that is
the real story; President Bush is nearly
twice as popular as congress; but, you would never know it if your
information came only from the MSM.
