Florida Lawmakers Gush
Over Jeb Bush

Associated Press, by Gary Fineout

TALLAHASSEE | Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush returned Thursday to the state capital, where he was showered with high praise and urged by fellow Republicans to run for president. Bush was making his first visit to Tallahassee in more than two years. His last visit came when he attended Gov. Rick Scott´s inauguration. He made stops in the Florida Capitol, where he talked to legislators about education and immigration — while stopping short of rendering his opinion on such items as Scott´s own pitch this year to give teachers an across-the-board $2,500 pay raise. "The Legislature is about ready to start,"

Comments:
He´s running for sure. And giving people like me more reason to say a pox on the Republicans and tuning out completely. To call it discouraging is insufficent.

No more Bush presidencies. 2 are enough unless we plan to hand the 2016 election to the Dems again.

Nothing like judging quickly, hmm? What do you say we wait a bit and see if Jeb wants to run and, if he does, what he has to say? There will be many possible candidates to choose from.

I hope he recieves twice as much honest consideration as moderate Republicans gave everyone whose last name wasn´t Romney. The Bush machine is broken. Demand more than well connected mediocrity the hallmark of previous Bush administration.

Well it doesn´t matter if he runs or not Hillary will be our next President and she will continue the destruction of our country. The Democrats will make sure along with the support of the Republicans that all the illegals who get amnesty will be eligible to vote in 2016. Between amnesty and all the voter fraud the Democrats have perfected we are headed to a one party rule like Venezuela.

It seems some people are putting Jeb Bush into the Sarah Palin category. Don´t even consider Sarah-Jeb-Marco,, etc., as a candidate for president. Right away they are showing their own prejudices. Never mind who would make the best candidate; I just don´t want so and so.
The dems may fight over the nomination, but they actually back their candidate, even if they are worthless, while the pubs continue to snipe at their candidate because their choice couldn´t run.

Fine, let him be governor of Florida again. He was, I believe, a successful and well-liked governor. But he needs to stay our of the POTUS race. I´m sure he´s a decent, smart man and probably should have been president instead of his brother. But that ship has sailed. No more Bushes.

I don´t think Jeb Bush wants to run for President. Many people here in Florida would like him to do so because he was the best governor Florida ever had. I was glad that Florida has no foreign policy because of the immigration issue but it does not so I was well satisfied with everything he did.

When Rubio was running for the Senate, Jeb kept a low profile but I knew he was a Rubio backer because Jeb´s sons were very active campaigners for Rubio. Some people now think he would be Rubio´s rival for the candidacy but I doubt it.

As well they should. He was a great governor, and would make a great president. And to #1, #6, #8 and other anti-Bushies, you are entitled to your opinions, but save your "No More Bushes" rant for the next meeting of Bush-Derangement-Syndrome Sufferers Anonymous.

#13. So Jeb Bush would make a great POTUS. Based on what? To be taken seriously, an opinion needs to be grounded in reality. ´Read my lips Bush´ was a one term feckless failure who ushered in Clinton. George the Compassionate, arguably the worst R POTUS of the century, gave us the Iraq fiasco, exponential govt growth, skyrocketing debt and deficits, the bailout of autos and banks plus Obama. But things will be different w/Jeb. Really??? All you have to know about the Bushes is that they are the spawn of Prescott and Samuel, core members of the turn of the century secular, progressive and corporatist gang who produced the likes of Hoover, Landon, Dewey, Wilkie Rockefeller, Scranton, Romney Sr, among others; losers all. Of course rock solid blue Mass, thinks the likes of Edward Brooke and Willie Weld are the measure of great R politicians. Sad.

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

An unexpected lesson in diversity

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

Obama taps gay bishop to wrap Easter
Prayer Breakfast with invocation

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. The crowd immediately started

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

   

 



 
Jeb Bush Talks Approach If

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

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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
