Jeb vs. W.

Comrade Matt Forney's comment on FB yesterday:
Jeb Bush is collapsing in the polls because he's a tepid nerd who wilts in the face of conflict. George W., for all his faults, was cocky and confident. Jeb is the bullied, resentful, nerdy son.
First, it is refreshing to see someone say something nice about W.  Someday, perhaps, someone will outline the media strategy that taught all Americans to start with a criticism when they speak about the former president.   I have no doubt war fatigue played a role, and W's hesitation to hit back at his critics emboldened them further.  It was a rare success story for the left to brainwash us all into finding, or making up, disgust towards one of the most honorable men to ever serve in the White House. 

I doubt Matt is a fan of W's, but he doesn't have to be to make his point.  Compared to Jeb, from any possible perspective, W rocks.  Jeb is the anti-cocky, anti-confident Bush.  Either it is his personality, or it is an act.  Either way, he's down there with Graham and Christie as the most uninspiring GOP candidates since Dole and McCain.

My $0.02: Let's drop the dynasty talk and FOCUS on defeating, or at least stalling, the communist takeover of our country.  Who is our best choice to do this?
