Below is a quote that Mitt Romney said:
“Jeb, to be very honest, I think it’s very hard for you to post up against Hillary Clinton and to separate yourself from the difficulty of the W. years and compare them with the Clinton years," Romney recalled saying to Bush.
According to Romney, Bush responded that “he was going to make his campaign about the future, not about the past.”
“I didn’t say anything at that point,” Romney told the Post. “But as he left, I said to myself, ‘Gosh, in my opinion, it’s not going to be as easy to make that separation as I think he gives the impression it will be.’ One of the few things I predicted that turned out to be true.”
Its becoming obvious that the establishment of the Republican party wants to drop Jeb Bush and move on and consolidate their support around someone else, perhaps Marco Rubio who's rising as the establishment alternative. John Kasich and Chris Christie also could be establishment alternatives.
