I remember reading a conservative article in 2012 that yeah, the GOP is going to get roasted that year but just wait till 2016! Marco Rubio! Chris Christie! Rand Paul! Hooo boy! The pickin's will be good! Nowhere did the article mention Jeb Bush, which shows how far the GOP field has fallen.

They hired Bush in a desperate bid to save themselves on a plan code-named "Project Verde." Essentially, Bush was to go to Mexico and convince (trick) a telecom mogul into making a large investment. It failed spectacularly. "Project Verde was unsuccessful," Bush wrote back. This is one of many instances where his quest for money overtook his judgment.  Which brings me to #2...
