Don’t forget about Jeb
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 1/15/2014 11:14:07 AM

In terms of a potential presidential run, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is both hurt and helped by being out of office. Unlike current office holders, Jeb can’t hold the public attention and be credited with carrying the GOP banner in current fights with Democrats. He isn’t in the flow of the rat-tat-tat of political combat. However, that may also be to his benefit. He is not burdened by mistakes, missteps and potential scandals that befall contenders currently in office. He does not have to weigh in on every issue, nor does he have to cast any votes. And unlike

Comments:
I wish I could. They must realize by now that many if not most of us will never vote for Jeb. Never.

Romney promised that if elected he would immediately waive everyone under Obamacare while congress worked on a repeal. Jeb, on the other hand, promises amnesty for illegals. Quite a difference there. I could overlook some things about Mitt because, well, I have stopped waiting for another Ronnie and the country desperately needed a professional turnaround guy. But Jeb? I can´t overlook his amnesty stand. He is even beyond "hold my nose" territory. Jeb, Hillary, what´s the difference and what´s the point? And that is precisely why Jeb will be pushed at us big time. No, thanks.

And there it is. Those of us who know what Jennifer Rubin is all about have been waiting for her Jeb Bush prep column. To be clear: In 2012, Rubin was a relentless establishment Romney shill. Utterly devoid of political insight or character, Rubin was the first place to read Team Romney´s opposition research drops on rival conservative candidates. (The second place was here on Lucianne.com, dutifully posted by our resident Romnettes.)

The day Donald Trump was rumored to be planning an endorsement of Newt Gingrich, Rubin declared that any primary candidate who accepted Trump´s endorsement should be considered ineligible for the GOP nomination. When Romney meechingly accepted Trump´s endorsement a few hours later, Rubin rewrote her column to make it okay for Mitt to love the Donald.

I have yet to read anything by Jennifer Rubin that displayed even the slightest political character or wisdom. Do the opposite of whatever she advises.

As for Bush 3.0: Don´t forget about Jeb, indeed. Don´t forget Jeb idiotically went out of his way to pin a medal on Hillary Clinton on the eve of the anniversary of Benghazi. Don´t forget Jeb thinks it´s un-American to ask people who have entered our country illegally to leave it. Don´t forget Jeb thinks Republicans were wrong to try to defund Obamacare.

And remember every time a member of the Bush family has put their foot in your mouth to stop conservatives from ruining the big government party that the Bush family lives to run.

And then run the other way.

I don´t think Jeb Bush wants to run for president in 2016. He´s not stupid. He knows the time isn´t right, so those who can´t quite move past the idea might want to look around some more.

Floridians remember Jeb as an excellent governor, possibly the best the state has seen in the past half century. I believe that Jeb is a superior politician to his brother and father, and and is probably smarter as well. Could Jeb be a successrful president? Yes, especially after the Skid Row Obama years, which won´t be difficult to improve on, provided his successor is several miles to his right.

Flipping the coin over to its reverse side, Jeb´s squishiness on how the law should treat illegal immigrants is unacceptable given that there are as many as 30,000,000 of them here, and that a discouraging number of them vote illegally after Motor Voter provided holders of driver´s licenses with voter registration cards. For honorable and dishonorable reasons, the Bush name has been sullied in the eyes of tens of millions of voters who don´t mind a Kennedy or a Clinton dynasty, but object to a Bush dynasty.

Most of us around here object to any sort of nepotistic political succession, especially in the presidency. To the tips of her toes, Ms. Rubin is an Establishment Republican, and her desire for a third Bush in the presidency isn´t surprising. If Jeb runs and manages to get the nomination, I´ll vote for him, but with trepidation. He probably couldn´t beat the Unsmiling One, who will have 95% of the Mainstream Media on her side.

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,

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

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.

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

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.

Mark the date. Sometime on Tuesday, Apr. 1, 2014, Charles H Keating Jr. became a footnote … in Sen. John McCain´s biography. No one would have predicted this, not even McCain. Especially McCain. But we were wrong. There was a time when McCain´s association with Keating looked like it would bring an end to the senator´s political career. 1989, Keating´s Lincoln Savings and Loan went belly up, putting taxpayers on the hook for $3.4 billion, or roughly $13.60 from every man, woman and child then living in the United States.

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?
