Romney's Not-So-Subtle Parting Shot at Jeb Bush
By Carrie Dann
Announcing his decision not to run for president Friday, Mitt Romney described his ideal GOP standard-bearer like this:
I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee. In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.
"Next generation" and "not as well known" certainly stand out in that sentence, as Romney was speaking to a group of former backers ripe for poaching by the camp of GOP establishment favorite Jeb Bush.
For one, it's certainly debatable that Bush - the son of one president and the brother of another - represents a "next generation of Republican leaders." He's been out of elected office for eight years; he's part of the party's most well-known modern political dynasty, and he was talked about as a potential presidential candidate long before this year. And at 61, he's more than a decade older than some of the conservative movement's breakout stars, like Marco Rubio (43), Ted Cruz (44) and Scott Walker (47).
This may be interesting, Next generation" and "not as well known", He isn't talking about Crusty, Jeb or Hukalbaby!
Out of the rest of the field who do you think Romney might support?
