Jeb Bush: I Would Govern Like
Lyndon Johnson as President

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/16/2013 8:25:01 AM

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy. Bush did not address Johnson´s Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, "We had a war on poverty, and poverty won." Instead, he was referencing Johnson´s mastery of

Comments:
Oh groan. I don´t know why he thinks that is a positive thing, despite what is said in the article. We need fresh blood in Washington. Not those who feel they are entitled to the position because of their last name, that would also include Hillary Clinton.

To openly admit... and broadcast this info, clearly The Progressives think they are untouchabe. Jeb simply reiterates what we already knew.... but loud enough to try & convince the Lo Fo´s he´s their man.

If he announces an exploratory team for the GOP primary... we must have a 3rd party ready to roll.

"Bush, who has a book on comprehensive immigration reform due out next month, said it was "un-American" to have illegal immigrants living in fear of exposure. "

So I´m un-American if I expect people to follow the laws. I am sick of Jeb Bush and his holier than thou attitude to those of us who think that following the law is a good thing. They wouldn´t have to live in the shadows if they followed the proper channels to live in the country. THey sure did a lot of hiding to get into the country so they are experts on it.

I voted for Bush twice. During his second term I was appalled by his actions. Bush started the DHS, TSA and signed the Patriot Act. He worked lovingly with Ted Kennedy to waste billions. His selected prosecutor, Johnny Sutton, persecuted our fine Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean. Bush is partially responsible that Obama was able to be elected. I wouldn´t vote for any Bush, ever.

On the Democrat side it will be Biden, Clinton, and a few others looking to take on the job of POTUS.

Republicans need to have name-recognition and stop focusing on social issues. They will take care of themselves once you actually gain majorities, and the power that comes with a majority party.

Focus on fiscal responsibility, energy development and how both link to funding gov´t without raising taxes.

When Democrats talk about education, remind them it´s a local funding issue, mostly with local property taxes, so why is this a federal conversation?
But then pivot to how an expanded energy production boom will help NEW revenues to pay for things like education, police and firefighters.
And has the opportunity to lower our gasoline prices which will be a benefit to taxpayers, and businesses alike.

But how can our analyses be taken seriously when we base them, like the liberals do, on misleading headlines that only serve as chum for folks who aren´t really open to considering a thing thoughtfully?

Jeb better study history...LBJ came with a vast knowledge of Congress and his powerful connections there. He was willing to use his executive power like no one since to get his way. He won by a landslide in ´64 and had unthreatened majorities in both chambers. Jeb, who I believe is unelectable, has nothing going for him. Ex-Governor of Florida is not the same credential as Senate Majority leader and Vice President carrying on the work of a martyr.

Actually, #23, I did read the article. Jeb Bush said stupid things in stupid ways. Like Lyndon Johnson, Bush wants to get things done in Washington. I want to get things undone. He says that "it is completely un-American to require people living in the shadows." That´s bad grammar, but he seems to be saying that I am un-American because I do not want to help people who are not Americans break our laws. This is the best we can do for 2016?

I suspect that Jeb grew up in a delusional family that thought highly of LBJ. Those old enough to remember LBJ know he was a total failure as a CIC who mismanaged a military he did not understand. Like Obama, he was way in over his head and stumbling from one bad idea to the next.

I lived through the Johnson era, which was a nightmare. It was when our country exploded and began its noisy descent to hell in a handbasket. The whole problem was that Johnson couldn´t govern. He was famously a great armtwister and deal maker in the Senate -- possibly the most powerful and effective Senator to operate in the 20th Century -- but the skill set that made him so effective in the Senate was exactly what was not needed to govern a country. Plus, he never got over the fact that every Kennedy-Worshiper in the country resented him for succeeding John F. Kennedy, and Johnson did not have the leadership skills to overcome this.

Jeb Bush was our governor here in Florida, and did a very creditable job, but if Lyndon Johnson is his Presidential model, he should be kept away from the Presidency.

Since this Bush is a champion for amnesty, so if the liberal Democrats get their so-called comprehensive immigration reform through which is nothing more then amnesty in a gift box with a fancy name, this Bush should think about running as a Democrat, as the Democrats will then have about 10 million new foreign born voters.

LBJ was an absolute, power playing, arm twisting, string pulling politician who micro-managed the Vietnam war from the war room under the White House. (Those bohyas kain´t bomb a s*** house without mayh say-so from rait here!)

He was the epitome of what is wrong with our government.

He also killed many, many fine men without knowing what he was doing.

As frustration over the United States’ broken immigration system has focused increasingly on President Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Wednesday that he will make sure that deportation efforts are aimed chiefly at those who pose a danger to public safety and national security. Johnson, who was sworn in as the fourth Homeland Security secretary late last year, made the promise in a closed-door meeting with Latino members of Congress who´ve been pressuring the administration to scale back the roughly 2 million deportations – a record – since Obama took office. Activists contend many people deported pose no threat. Members of the

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

The White House said that President Obama was looking forward to addressing the annual conference hosted by the Rev. Al Sharpton, amid reports the civil rights leader worked as a confidential informant for the FBI. Asked if there were any “second thoughts” about allowing the president to go ahead and speak at Sharpton´s National Action Network conference, after the media attention on Sharpton, White House press secretary Jay Carney replied “no.” “Reverend Sharpton and the National Action Network have made significant contributions to civil rights efforts, and the president looks forward to appearing at the conference,” he told

The Wall Street Journal strongly suggested Wednesday that opponents of "comprehensive" immigration reform are mere racists, in a slew of commentary prompted by the controversy over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush´s remark this week that illegal immigration was an "act of love." Though the Journal editorial page is often quite conservative, it frequently criticizes the Tea Party, and it tends to favor a liberal policy on immigration reform. In an editorial entitled "Jeb Bush´s Immigration Heresy," the Journal´s editorial writers assert that Bush has "already got a better immigration message than the self-defeating "self-deportation" crowd that cost the GOP so

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray´s agency has been slammed in recent months for refusing to divulge to Congress details of its lavish spending on a new headquarters. The CFPB has also been exposed by the Washington Examiner for running an NSA-like surveillance program that compromises the privacy of hundreds of millions of Americans´ most intimate financial dealings. Cordray´s agency has even been taken to court by the Examiner in conjunction with the nonprofit group Judicial Watch for chronically refusing to make public even the most basic details of its spending of tax dollars. Now there´s this But things are now getting

Michelle Obama spent more than $251,000 of taxpayers´ money on a sightseeing jaunt to Dublin, Ireland in June 2013 while the first family was on a three-day official trip to Belfast. The three-day journey overall cost more than $7.6 million. She stayed in the $3,300-per-night ´Princess Grace´ presidential suite at Dublin´s tony Shelbourne Hotel, a sumptuous two-bedroom, two-bathroom lodging that measures 1,530 square feet and includes butler service and its own dining room.

Twenty people have been injured - five with life-threatening wounds - in a stabbing spree Wednesday morning at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. Murrysville police chief Thomas Seefeld confirmed a 16-year-old male student is in custody, and he was photographed being driven from the police station to a nearby hospital for medical treatment just before 10:30a.m. In a morning press conference, Seefled revealed an assistant principal wrestled the suspect to the ground after he ran through multiple classrooms and hallways brandishing two knives. Four of the victims were airlifted to hospital and at least three are still being operated on, according

The White House won some negative headlines for scheduling a fundraiser during President Obama´s trip Wednesday to Texas to mourn the shooting deaths at Fort Hood U.S. Army base, but he´s actually attending two, one with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a $17.1 million home. His first stop is the base near Austin, where Spc. Ivan Lopez, 34, carried out the rampage last week, killing three and wounding 16 before taking his own life. Afterwards, Obama will put on his fundraiser-in-chief hat two two fundraisers tied into the trip. Having an official event helps cut the costs of Air Force One

WASHINGTON — Returning once again to a grief-stricken corner of America, President Barack Obama is reprising his role as chief comforter, mourning with families of those killed last week at Fort Hood and offering solace to the nation. It´s a duty that Obama has had to fulfill far too often. Tucson. Aurora. Newtown. Boston. Washington Navy Yard. Fort Hood — twice. The names of these communities have all become synonymous with tragedy in the years since Obama took office, each challenging the president to find ways to impart meaning to senseless death. "Increasingly, giving these eulogies has become a central

Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats. In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office. In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s

When Congressman Paul Ryan opined recently that there was a "real culture problem" in poor communities, "in our inner cities in particular," and that this culture was behind some of the country´s economic troubles, he didn´t realize how half right he was. People are continuing to debate fiercely what Ryan said and whether he meant to propagate racially coded explanations of poverty´s roots. But put that aside for a moment. Here´s what he was right about: There is indeed a culture in America that is pathological and now threatens our social fabric. It´s not the culture of poverty, though. It´s the

When it comes to insults and accusations in modern politics, few things are worse than being compared to Sen. Joseph McCarthy, whose unsubstantiated accusations in the 1950s against Americans he suspected of communism are widely seen as one of the darkest times in congressional history. Now, ahead of a House Oversight Committee vote Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt, the committee´s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, is accusing Chairman Darrell Issa, R-California, of engaging in McCarthyism. And he´s releasing a congressional study that he says proves it. Cummings and fellow committee Democrats say Issa is trampling

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
