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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent
