Would Jeb Bush vote for Sarah Palin vs Obama? 'You betcha!'

Republican former Florida governor Jeb BushIt's Friday. Let's get right to it:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was on CNN today with John King.

They talked about numerous things:

That Republican ex-Gov. Bush would like to hear some more substance in today's campaign debates.

And he thinks Republicans in 2012 need a positive agenda that is "big and  bold and aspiritional."

Then, King asked Bush a question off of Facebook: "Would he endorse Palin for president if he does not run himself."

Bush's quick reply: "Well, A, I'm not running. And if Sarah Palin is the nominee and she's running against Barack Obama, you betcha."

So, for at least for one party establishment figure, Sarah Palin could be a unifying factor against you-know-who.

Jeb can vote for whomever he chooses. I notice they didn't ask him if she was qualified, or if she would make a good POTUS. Of course, he had to put up with his brother's awful attempt at governing for 8 years. I think George has ruined Jeb's chances at the White House.

Great Quote: "no-one ever lost money betting on the stupidity of the american people"

King and the other CNN leftys always concentrate on Palin,O'Donnel and Angle,no disrespect meant to S.Palin here.Dont you wish they would talk more
about nutjobs like Kucinich,Waxman,Alvin Greene,Waters,Rangel and so
many other fringe or corrupt to the bone dems ?And how about CNN's
addiction to Bill Maher as a political commentator...why not Charles Manson
or Tony Rezko ?No wonder CNN is following in Air America's footsteps and
gets creamed by the Maddow and Olberman buffoons.

This is the Super Power brain speaking. Sarah is presidential. How in heaven did we become the advanced nation. I wish sara runs become actually a president. Then America will take it rightful place in the world.
A wonderful place filled with hateful, ignorant, real backword demagogues.
