Jeb Bush says yes to CPAC
Hill [Washington,DC], by Cameron Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 2/5/2013 12:31:17 PM

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) will speak for the first time at this year´s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a regular stop for Republican presidential hopefuls. The move is a sign that Bush is seeking a more public role within the GOP, though it´s unclear whether he´s more interested in playing an elder-statesman role or in running for president. While Bush has been invited to speak at previous CPAC events, this is the first time he´s accepted the offer. "We are pleased to announce that my friend Governor Jeb Bush will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013,"

As Governor his daughter was arrested for illegal drug prescriptions and his wife tried to bring expensive items in without paying duty-entitled?
Why did Jeb and his father meet with the Usurper in the WH before the election?
Selling Romney out to keep seat open for Jeb in 2016?
Barbara Bush´s nasty comments about Palin?
Barbara -wealthy heiress who dropped out of college to marry.
Sarah -put herself through college, married, had a Family, fought corruption in both Parties and won the Governorship.
Barbara thought she could look down on her because she wasn´t rich and entitled.
Sorry - no more Bushes.

I think Jeb Bush would make a great president, but I don´t expect he´ll run. His
focus is on preparing the way for his son George P. to run, after Obama has made such a mess of things that the country will be begging for a Bush to run!

Good for Jeb. I´m happy to see anyone who claims an R and has done a good job as a full term governor under my conservative tent. He will have something useful to add to the CPAC effort. And,you can relax, #1. No old Bush boogeybear will be chasing you in 2016. It´s all going to be okay.

Shouldn´t you have to be a conservative to get into CPAC in the first place? No RINO´s or "moderates" need apply. What is going to do? I guess he plans to bash the Tea Party? No thank you sir.

I don´t think the Republicans have learned anything from the last election.
Don´t they know that a lot of Republicans will just stay home again, sick at their stomach, if they nominate someone like Jeb Bush.

Anyone who actually cares to look at his RECORD as governor, would know that he was a conservative in the vein of Rick Perry. On quite a few issues, he is to the right of his brother and definitely to the right of his Dad...at least in terms of governance.

As long as Republicans have open primaries the Democrats will vote in droves for Jeb Bush knowing the conservatives will never vote for him. If he gets the nomination he will get fewer votes than Romney. Good grief what are we becoming an aristocracy? No more Bushes and no more Clinton´s including Hillary and Chelsea.

Let´s see: One term governor, R after his name, political family....

Well, I guess that really does tick all the boxes. He must be a conservative. We should probably nominate him right now to save time and avoid those nasty primaries with all those people trying to take the nomination away from its rightful owner.

Because it´s his turn....

I agree that a third Bush is to much, however I cannot believe the ignorant comments here. Most of you must be to lazy to check out his record.#24 he served two terms. He was a very conservative governor, anyone remember Terry Schiavo tax cuts balanced budgets. Most of you posting have never looked at his record. It´s unnerving to think conservatives think with their emotions like liberals.

Apologies for the second post (not that anyone´s still reading). When Samuel Johnson was asked to explain how he had so badly misdefined one entry in his Dictionary, he replied, "Ignorance, Madam. Pure ignorance." Jeb Bush did, indeed, serve two terms as Governor of Florida, as #26 correctly points out. Pure ignorance on my part. So now we agree on two things: I am ignorant and Jeb Bush should not be our nominee in 2016.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies."

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

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

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.
