Jeb Bush: I’m ‘in Sync’With Lindsey
Graham on Immigration Reform

ABC News, by George Stephanopoulos

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 3/11/2013 10:10:31 AM

During an interview for “This Week,” former Florida governor Jeb Bush told me that he was “in sync” with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on the issue of immigration reform. Graham, a key member of the bipartisan group of senators pushing for immigration reform, took Bush to task after the former Florida governor said Monday that he did not support a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, which is a key component of the plan being pushed by the Senate group. Bush subsequently reversed course and said he could in fact support a plan

Lindsey Graham?? Can you get any more clueless than this?

Bless your heart, Jeb. You just lost half of the Republican party vote. The only more despised Establishment Republican would be John McCain, and I´m sure for the sake of comity, you will find something likable in the old cooty-bird.

It used to be said, before the Obama economy, that ans 50 cents would get you a cup of coffee. I think old Jeb is having a mid-life crisis or worse. Who beyond Kelly Ayotte and cranky old John McCain are in sync with Lindsey Grahmnesty? Who in their right mind would want to be in sync with him? Maybe Jeb is doing all of this to please Bush 41 since he is in declining health and maybe wanted Jeb to run? It is not going to happen and will not go well if he tries.

Well the same thing could happen again if 3-4 conservatives run against one moderate. Romney never got more 30% and he got the nomination while the remaining 70% was split among the other conservative candidates. Jeb is in sync with ms lindsey graham and President Johnson. Good grief either the Republican party changes or there will be a third party.

The last Republican the country needs to try for the White House is another Bush. If this Bush were to actually run, Obama and the Clintons would grind him up and spit him out before he ever got across the starting line.

What this Bush is now doing is taking a libertarian approach to solving the illegal alien problem. That essentially consists of granting just about all illegal aliens amnesty of some sort, and opening up the borderline to all potential illegal aliens in the future so that they can easily get a pass to legally enter the USA and work.

After those interim steps are taken and a few years pass, with 20 million or more aliens having a legal immigration status, the call would go out by the liberal Democrats to simply grant them all US citizenship and most importantly to the liberal Democrats, US voting rights.

Since the vast majority of those "New Americans" as the liberal Democrats call them, would be poor people, who are generally uneducated, earning low wages, with large families, there is little doubt that the vast majority of them would vote for the liberal Democrats who will offer them absolute access to all the US social safety net benefit and welfare service programs.

With 10 million or more new voters the liberal Democrats would be in a position to send the Republicans into a downhill slide to political oblivion. Obviously the Republican (Stupid) Party cannot yet see that.

The Republicans should never grant 11-20 million any sort of amnesty that will lead them to a special path to citizenship in the future. Any legalized alien, before being granted permanent residence, should have to qualify for an immigrant visa, just as all legal immigrants are required to do before they are given a "Green card".

If he runs, it´s a sure win for the other side again.

Half a century ago, the Beatles were really busy. After Beatlemania broke out in 1963, they played more than 1,200 shows, recorded 12 LPs and appeared in five movies. Some followed the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, or admitted to trying acid, or spurned royal honors, or claimed to be more popular than Jesus. Then, in 1970, they broke up. But that didn’t end Beatlemania. In 1976, “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels appealed to the band on the air, offering them $3,000 to reunite. Not long before he was killed, John Lennon had to endure

Phil Mickelson started the day with a 20/1 chance to win the Open Championship, but a remarkable charge on the back nine at Muirfield secured fifth major championship victory. While Tiger Woods and the rest of the leaders were faltering, Mickelson birdied four of his last six holes, including the 18th, to build an insurmountable lead. His final round 66 ties the best score of any player all week long. After draining a birdie putt on the 18th hole, Mickelson walked off the green and embraced his family, making for one of the greatest photos of the summer.

At this point in the long holiday weekend, I’m ready to kick back and discuss immigration reform. It’s a very important issue. Plus, I have found it difficult to keep a dinner party conversation going with the farm bill. Here’s one of the good things about the immigration bill that passed the Senate last week. It reminds us of how things used to work in Congress, back in the day when the two parties would get together and make big messy deals that we all complained about. Which now, of course, we miss. Come back, big messy deals! All is forgiven.

Jeb Bush to House lawmakers:

Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, says that House Republicans should improve and then pass the immigration bill that passed out of the Democrat-led Senate last week. “No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration, added to the welfare rolls, and failed to ensure a secure border,” they said. Mr. Bush and Clint Bollick, co-authors of “Immigration Wars,” said in a Wall Street Journal opinion article that GOP lawmakers would sell out basic conservative principles by opposing the bill.

A Republican Case for
Immigration Reform

Now that the Senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform, the action shifts to the House of Representatives. Here the GOP´s informal "Hastert Rule" requires Speaker John Boehner to have majority support among Republicans before he will bring legislation to the floor for a vote. That means an immigration bill will need a far greater share of Republican House members than the Senate version received (where fewer than one-third of Republicans voted "aye"). This is a tall order. But it is one to which House Republicans should respond. No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration

Debating the nature of marriage

This is a significant moment in our public conversation on marriage. By ruling a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and choosing not to rule on the question of same-sex marriage in California, the Supreme Court essentially declared that the federal government may not set parameters for the definition of marriage but, instead, must leave that power to the states. This means that the important debate about the meaning of marriage is destined to continue. Some have framed this debate in terms of “equality.” That rings with a certain American appeal.

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the Supreme Court´s ruling on same-sex marriage as a "victory for American democracy" but clashed with his African host over gay rights in a sign of how far the movement has to go internationally. Obama said recognition of gay unions in the United States should cross state lines and that equal rights should be recognized universally. It was his first chance to expand on his thoughts about the ruling, which was issued Wednesday as he flew to Senegal, one of many African countries that outlaw homosexuality.

Today’s two Supreme Court rulings involving same-sex marriage were a huge and gratifying victory in the long struggle to end government-sanctioned discrimination against gay and lesbian Americans. It is sad, this deep into the national conversation about equal rights, that five justices were not willing to recognize a constitutional right for all couples to marry, regardless of the state where they live or their genders. But the momentum for marriage equality seems unstoppable and such a breakthrough will eventually come. The first ruling struck down the central provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act, the odious 1996 federal law

The remarks — which the Vatican spokesman did not deny and the participants at the private audience confirmed — appeared to be part of an effort by the pope to take on the entrenched interests in the Vatican

Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

But analysts said the talk of Snowden’s role in the cancellation obscured a more basic reality: The U.S.-Russia relationship is now so frosty that it didn’t appear the two presidents would actually accomplish enough to merit such a high-profile meeting.
