Jeb Bush labels conservative
critics ‘the chirpers’

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/17/2013 1:22:30 PM

Jeb Bush says he’s not worried that his work toward comprehensive immigration reform and his ties to the GOP establishment will alienate conservatives and negatively impact a potential 2016 presidential campaign, referring to critics as “the chirpers.” “If I decide to run for office again, it will be based on what I believe, and it will be based on my record,” the former Florida governor said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody. “And that record was one of solving problems completely from a conservative prospective.” Bush (R) pointed to his conservative

Comments:
These RINO elitists are so tiresome. He proves that the Republicans lie when they say they are a "big tent" party. They are only interested in certain segments of society and we are not one of them.

What OP said. No one cares what Jeb Bush thinks or says. He may be one of the most irrelevant persons in politics.

Jeb is sounding like his dad when he ran against Gov. Ronald Reagan for the GOP nomination. ....Of course, Ronald Reagan won the votes of the American people, -Republicans AND democrats, and he became the greatest president of the last century! There is a lesson to be learned by the current GOP from this undeniable historical note.

we´re going to have a dem president. If a dweeb like Jeb Bush is the pubbie candidate in 2016, dems are assured a win again. I´m married to a hispanic - true Spanish. We are beyond the fertile hispanic. Dumbest thing I´ve ever heard from a pol´s lowest orifice. We need a burning bush...one that just disappears from political life and is no longer heard from. No Bush!

The Booosh Babies may be "Texans" in the sense that UT Austin is technically a part of Texas.

A firm handshake and a love of horses, guns and dogs does not a Libertarian make.

There´s no one as much fun to party with as a Country Club Republican but they have been turned into a bunch of Thurston Howell III.

Not ready to really fight for anything.

Too much to lose.

Too invested in the status quo.

Too much risk, you know....Lovie.

I don´t know who Bush thinks he is talking to (or who he thinks he is) but the condescending, sanctimonious attitude these RINO´s have toward the actual VOTERS is getting very very tiresome. A vast majority of conservatives are against this illegal amnesty bill. It is clear that we are ´chirpers´ and what we believe is irrelevant. Run for President, Jeb. Try it.

I will continue to chirp away. I assuming Bush thinks it´s his turn to head the GOP ticket and that he thinks he will get the conservative vote because it has nowhere else to go. No, I just will not vote for him, as in none of the above. I mean, he´s not going to win anyway, so what difference does it make? (Gee, a bit of Hillary there.)

He won´t get the conservative vote and good luck with that Hispanic vote and whatever else is between.

Does the GOP have a secret course on being stupid? Sure seems that way. Another McCain reach across the isle wannabe. That worked out how well?

How many more statements does he think he needs to make to get the sense he is planning to run in 2016 ----especially about the division in the Bush (SR.) household. Geeesh!

# 8 - "The Booosh Babies may be "Texans" in the sense that UT Austin is technically a part of Texas."
´Technically´ a part of Texas´??????? I could have sworn that seeing the UT Tower glowing Orange after a Longhorn win that it had a physical presence and wasn´t only a hologram or riding up the ramps in a MG at Memorial Stadium wasn´t only a dream.

“To me, being able to use your skills to solve problems should be the focus for everybody in elective office today, because our systems are broken, they’re not working." - Jeb Bush

This is an almost unbelievably thoughtless, stupid, false claim. What on earth is he talking about? What "system" is "broken" and "not working?" Does he mean to suggest that the existence of robust political disagreement about basic values and objectives is a sign that something is wrong - that "the system" is "broken?"

I don´t know that much about Jeb Bush, but this kind of mindless incantation of memes and sound bites makes me think he might not be the brightest bush on the lot. Dumb and meaningless talk like this is something we have come to expect from Democrats. It sounds like something Nancy Pelosi -possibly one of the stupidest women to hold national elected office in the history of the republic- would say. It is not encouraging. Neither is the arrogance Jeb seems to radiate. I have always liked and admired his brother, who is a great deal smarter and wiser than Leftist character assassins give him credit for. About Jeb, I am not so sure. I hope he is not another example of that worst of all possible combinations, stupidity and arrogance. We have had and still have more than enough of that. The current Democratic administration and leadership have, one might have thought, cornered the market on that nasty combination.

This may be unfair to Jeb Bush. It is perhaps too soon to judge. He deserves his fifteen minutes of fame - if he wants it. But any more talk of unspecified "systems" being "broken" or Republican critics as "chirpers" and I am going to start chirping myself.

Well, Jeb, it seems to me that even though you believe that Republicans can not win without the illegal alien vote, the fact remains that they can´t win without the "wacko birds" and the "chirpers" either. I´m taking the position that I will no longer hold my nose and vote for the lesser of two evils. I want omeone who takes their oath of office to heart, not some political game player.

If the voters want to vote for a lie-beral, they will vote for a Demon-RAT. They might as well get the real thing, not a RINO that doesn´t really seem to stand for anything.

I don´t know who Jeb is trying to appeal to, but it´s not going to appeal to anyone. Of course, he can´t touch King RINO, Mr. Christie, so that is a losing path to try to take in every way for him...

Of course, it won´t matter. PIAPS will be our next president no matter what. We could present undisputable evidence that she paid the terrorists to attack our embassy in Benghazi, that she worked snapping babies´ knecks in Gosnell´s abortion slaughterhouse, and that she likes to sexually abuse 3-year-old little girls -- all with pictures -- and she would still get elected.

This republic died on 11-6-2012. It is just waiting to implode under the weight of it´s rotting corpose. When the people who work for a living got outnumbered by the people who vote for a living, there was no hope of recovery. Just a slow, painful death...

The Bush`s all are Globalist, the old man and 43 told, and showed us that, they are FOR open boarders, higher taxes and a lot more of the lefts views, mama bush stated she was for "a woman´s right to choose" so did Laura, GWB pretended to be conservative to fooled some of us into voting for him, he let us all hang out on a limb and swing by not trying to fight back the evil that was being waged on America by the left and around the world...and he wanted us to keep our mouth shut and not fight back either. I have stated on a thread years ago in reference to GWB--the rich have rich ways and the poor have poor ways-need I say more...

It seems I´m a citizen without a political party. The Republicans in DC are most interested in feathering (ahem) their nests, while calling me a chirping wacko bird. They are more ruling class than Republican.

I voted McCain and Romney against my will. Clearly these elites don´t want my vote any time soon. When I think of our Founding Fathers and their hard work, I feel real sorrow. Then I think of my children´s future, and I feel overwhelming dread.

I don´t know why the caged bird sings, but thanks to Republicans, I bet I find out.

I lost a hand in Vietnam but its still able to strike a mark for a good candidate that I choose not the Republican party.

JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not

Some of you have had to learn the basics all over again, how to stand again, how to walk again, how to run again,” said Obama at the White House event. “And now you´re here today because that´s what Soldiers Ride is all about, seeing each other through the finish line."

President Obama´s budget would not place the federal debt on a downward path over the next 10 years, according to projections released by the Congressional Budget Office on Thursday. The CBO, Congress’ nonpartisan budget scorekeeper, projected that if the president’s proposals were to go into effect, federal debt held by the public would rise from $12.8 trillion at the end of fiscal 2014 to $19.9 trillion in 2024, leaving the level of debt as a share of total economic output constant, at roughly 74 percent. That would be lower than the baseline projection of 78 percent if nothing is done,

Media Matters for America is resisting

Media Matters for America is apparently resisting an effort by Service Employees International Union Local 500 to unionize its staff. Last week, the union filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board, indicating that the nonprofit media watchdog organization rejected an effort by the union to organize MMFA´s staff through a Card Check election. A filing with the NLRB does not necessarily mean that the union and management are in direct confrontation. For example, although Volkswagen tacitly backed the United Auto Workers´ recent effort to organize its Chattanooga, Tenn., plant, the company still insisted on an NLRB-monitored election. But the

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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

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

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
