We began discussing this last night when the tragic news broke about the death of Justice Scalia, and as predicted the question has caught fire already. The President already said he will be nominating someone, but will the Senate take up the question while he is still in office? We have the answer from several presidential candidates already and one of them is Jeb Bush. It's really not that important to him.
JEB BUSH: I think President Obama is going to submit a nominee and in all likelihood this person will be out of the mainstream and he'll be rejected by the Senate. That's his prerogative. He has every right to do it, and the Senate has every right not to confirm that person. That's what I said. He clearly has the power to do it, but given his choice of Supreme Court justices in the past the Senate of the United States should not confirm someone whose out of the mainstream.
DANA BASH: But if I could just clarify, right now it sounds as though...
JEB BUSH: Yeah.
DANA BASH: ...the Republicans who run the Senate aren't even going to schedule a vote. You think that one should be scheduled?
JEB BUSH: It's up to Mitch McConnell. That's really not important to me....

Has there ever been a more clueless Presidential candidate?
Someone tell Jeb! he’s supposed to first get the nomination before proceeding to throw the election with stupid comments like this. John McCain can connect with him and show him how it’s done properly
But...but...but...he’s a BUSH!....a BUSH!
He’s a Bush. But first and foremost, he’s a 4 star JERK.
From the family that brought us Harriet Miers.
Light a match and get rid of that bush permanently.
We’ve had enough Bushes.
Jebra, you are not important to me.
I can’t even express my disgust for Jeb.
Jeb has a "magic mouth" of stupid. It's uncanny how he always figures out the absolute stupidest thing he can possibly say.
Jeb has the Power! He has the power to unite Trump and Cruz supporters.
(or for Cruz, Rubio & Bush: T.E.N.E.D.O.R)
Yup. Jeb is just like that, but with stupidity.
This is how the Bush Globalist Empire works, they could care less about your life, everything they have done and continue to do is for the Donor Class.
I once raised thousands and gave many, many hours of volunteering to the county party headquarters in Iowa. I was given the “Eagle pin” given to top-level donors, but was asked not to wear it where a donor might see it.
Jeb is a moron. I do not understand how he was ever elected to be governor of a state
By Golly. It looks like Ole Jeb is just the kind of fighter we need in these troubling times.
