Look as a liberal I really want to like Jeb Bush and want to have a good number of reasons to at least consider voting for him since he's considered one of the more moderate GOP candidates...... But when he says things like this it makes it close to impossible for me to want to support him.

Jeb isn't moderate. He is moderate by today's standards, but he was a fairly conservative governor. He is my 3rd favorite

"one of the more moderate GOP candidates" doesn't have to actually mean moderate.

Kasich is best NA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually rubio then kasich but still!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kasich > Jeb. And I guess you're right. Jeb is slightly more moderate than Kasich, but more conservative than Pataki and Christie (http://fivethirtyeight.com...). That makes less extreme than most.

I understand that skepticism. Their pitch on how we need to have "an aggressive foreign policy" -- whatever that may be -- is also concerning.
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff
