Why the GOP needs
Jeb — right now

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza and Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 12/6/2012 9:26:14 AM

As we wrote on Wednesday, the Republican Party is largely leaderless at the moment — drifting as it seeks some sort of new (or new-ish) direction to head on fiscal cliff and immigration, among other other issues. The only person capable of herding the party not only in a unified direction but also a direction that can solve (or at least address) the GOP’s issues — demographic and otherwise — is the former governor of Florida. That doesn’t mean that Bush, who is widely speculated as a potential 2016 presidential candidate, needs to decide

Maybe the Mayans were right after all... This is truly unreal!

I disagree with these comments. Jeb is conservative, and smart and would have made a great president but alas the time is past for him. The Bush name is tarnished beyond repair and will only be healed by time. Jeb is unelectable.

The last thing in the world that Republicans need is the GOP. Somehow Republicans have to find and root out their party´s Sorroses, Alinskys, Wrights, Reids, Geitners and Holders. Republicans are toast until they get some lever-pullers who are committed to obliterating the Socialist Juggernaut that is destroying this country.

Sweet Creamery Butter!!! Why is the GOP trying to force feed us Jeb Bush?!! We need a true conservative if the party is to be saved--however, I´m not sure that´s of any interest to anyone apart from the GOP elite. There are no conservative Bushes, so far as I know. They only appear conservative when compared to the far left.

No Jeb, no way.

Wasn´t it JEB who said Reagan couldn´t get nominated in the GOP today due to the Tea Party??? Reagan WAS the tea party circa 1976...We are SCREAMING for a Reagan...but they keep getting subverted by the Boehners and Bushes...

Reagan was the voice in the wilderness who got told to "get in line" by the GOP Power brokers of the day...namely GHW BUSH!!!

The Tea Party is as welcome in DC as a cop at a high school keg party...NO ONE inside the house wants to the see the cop, and only the home owner and the neighbor appreciate him...Regardless of whether they are jocks, stoners, geeks,sluts, etc ALL inside the house unify against the cop to keep the party going...

JEB is just another "swell" at the party who wants his turn at the keg tap...

There is a definite divide in how many of us think who post on Lucianne.com. The Repub party is past saving imho.
From the age of twelve, I helped build the GOP in my NE corner of Mississippi. My state was totally Democrat at all levels. Now it is majority Repub. The writing I did, the canvasing, the money I gave. Not one election from the time I could vote did I not participate. When my views were given the old arrogant bash during the primaries and before, it began to dawn on me that Repubs were always going to be dominated by moderates and old style liberals. Just because a person calls themselves conservative does not mean they are. I will not vote for any other Republican running for any office on any level if they are Dem lite. No more money, calling from ´headquarters´ or writing letters to the editors. So, all you moderates have won. You own the party. You own all the past and future loses. I am sure that suits you because losing seems to be your goal. Like Ramona, I am not a Republican anymore.

If Jeb Bush were the man to lead us, we´d already know that - because he´d be leading!

We must all pray for a real leader - someone we´d all recognize immediately as having leadership qualities. While such people are rare, they do exist and they are never timid in their manner or the articulation of our cause... like Ronald Reagan.

If the WaPo had spent some of its precious column inches vetting the current pResident then I might consider their advice.

If the WaPo had spent exerted its editorial influence defending Mr. Romney´s character or even questioning Mr. Obama´s proposals they might have established their bonifides as a arbiter of public discourse.

But they have done neither. They have chosen their side. It is against conservatism. Let us bid them good day and forget that they were ever our countrymen.

I suspect that most of the Jeb naysayers here are so brainwashed of the Bush lies that they have no clue the great job Jeb did as Governor. One thing he did do was to handle all the Hurricane disasters far better than Presidents and FEMA. I worked in Emergency Communications and saw it first hand. He did a lot of other good for Florida as well.

But don´t let facts get in the way of your prejudices.

I have no doubt that Jeb Bush did some fine things as governor of FL; nor do I doubt that he is a good man. But he has one huge mark against him - his name. Even if we were all convinced that he is truly Conservative, not just ConLite, the Bush "brand" would render him unelectable. We keep handing elections to Dems on silver platters. McCain and Romney supporters couldn´t see this, and I suspect Jeb´s enthusiasts will have a similar blind spot.

The GOP has given its Conservative base the tall finger too many times. Those of us who hung on after McCain lost have now joined those who in 2008 said: Never Again. As for the GOP elite, to paraphrase a song - "They did not listen they did not know how, and they´re not listening now."

If Jeb Bush had never existed, never been born, not met his parents - Would the world cry out for him?

America cries out for something, a concept, a composite leader, someone with vision, someone we don´t know yet, perhaps.

We can stipulate that the former governor is politically adroit, or he wouldn´t have been elected in the first place. His political acumen comes from his DNA, with so many of his recent ancestors in high office, and a sibling as a two term president. With this family history he would have had to be a purposeful pinhead to have not learned anything about politics.

With this family history, too, political aptitude, we can nearly assume, was rubbed into his hide in the womb. Aptitude, though, is assimilated by the weakest intellects among us, so is this something to recommend any individual?

It is one thing to have followed the course set out for you, and it is another to generate the conditions required to elevate yourself out of them. Which has this Bush done?

Not long ago we absolutely needed a certain general to rescue our helpless selves from the oppressors. If a man´s brain is sized according to the space that houses it - how large could this former great hope´s be, considering which cranium holds his brain?

Just as the current resident of the nation´s manse is defined by his past words and actions, so should anyone seeking to displace him be defined.

What has WPO´s latest recommendation said or done to have him seen as the hope of a nation?

I agree with poser #5 Bush is a good conservative, but the name is ruined, and americans rebel against dynasties. #43 please keep in mind facts don´t matter to ignorant people. It´s embarrassing that so called knowledgeable conservatives aren´t aware that Jeb was a very conservative governor, one of the most conservative in the country, and more conservative that some of the posters hero Perry.

The last thing the country needs is another Bush in the White House. The last one could not or would not even effectively defend his own policies and that ended with the very liberal Obama being served up to the country.

This Jeb Bush wants to legalize and grant most of the millions of illegal aliens eventual US voting rights, thinking that in keeping with "family values" that they will vote Republican.

The liberal Democrats have consistently been pushing for amnesty and granting US voting rights to the illegal alien population that realistically amounts to 20 million or more these days. Believe me, the liberal Democrats would not be doing that if they ever thought that there was any chance that most Hispanic voters would ever have an epifinany and vote Republican.

The vast majority of the illegal alien population are poor and generally uneducated people from socialist oriented countries, once legalized they would need all sorts of government welfare based benefits and services to survive here. Anyone who believes that a plurality of those people are going to vote Republican is living in a fairyland.

Republican candidates for public office should not be talking about the specific tactics used to deport illegal aliens like "self-deportation" and border fences that are highly unpopular in Hispanic and immigrant communities, all they have to say is that they support the effective administration and enforcement of the immigration laws.

The bushes have had their day. Poppy should have contained his obsession for one of his sons to be president until jeb was ready for it. Instead we got the deeply flawed, intellectually incurious, dubya.

Unfortunately for jeb, we as a nation have had enough of this family. It´s over...and while jeb was better suited to be president, that ship has sailed.....we will never elect another bush to national office.

An unexpected lesson in diversity

Daily Caller, by Jamie Weinstein    Original Article

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary. My sweetest dream for 2016 would be for a bipartisan pact: that 2016 will not be a sequel to the 1992 Bush-Clinton faceoff. Is it a deal, Dems? I won´t vote for Bush if you

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying. This speech recalls last December’s address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries

Mark the date. Sometime on Tuesday, Apr. 1, 2014, Charles H Keating Jr. became a footnote … in Sen. John McCain´s biography. No one would have predicted this, not even McCain. Especially McCain. But we were wrong. There was a time when McCain´s association with Keating looked like it would bring an end to the senator´s political career. 1989, Keating´s Lincoln Savings and Loan went belly up, putting taxpayers on the hook for $3.4 billion, or roughly $13.60 from every man, woman and child then living in the United States.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
