Jeb Bush to make decision
on 2016 by the end of this year

Washington Post, by Ed O´Keefe

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 4/6/2014 11:54:20 PM

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Jeb,
No amnesty for illegals.
Committing a felony is not an act of Love- it is a crime.
Enjoy your retirement.

Isn´t it amazing how many Jeb Bush stories have been in the media of late? Who says there are no hidden hands of influence in the country today?

Sure he´s running. Notice his name is in the news every day ?

Any Bush is a fine and honorable man. Unfortunately, the voters would not give Jeb a chance because of his name.

Jeb Bush likes foreigners to over run our country and take taxpayers money. Its all about love, BS. Jeb is tainted with the Latinos and their culture. Jeb Bush should stay in Florida and have his son return, cause he is not going any further in politics in Texas or the US.

Hey Jeb how many illegal Mexicans come across your border...like none...Florida does not border Mexico....Texas does and we do not like what has happened to our state...
we are more like Mexico and everyone is catering to the Mexicans...food product labels are printed in English and Mexican, Driver´s license offices have instructions in Mexican first then English, voting places cater to Mexicans...what the hell, if they are coming over for love, then learn to read, write and speak English.

The tragic lesson from 2012 was that enough conservatives will sit out and just not vote - if the candidate is a perceived RINO - to hand the presidency to another socialist. Please, Jeb, we just cannot afford to go through that again. Especially now that the "We refuse to hold Barack accountable!" GOP has been all but begging principled voters to go third party.

Let me help you, Jeb. Just say no. It´s not your name. Although Americans are sick of political dynastie because they just have not worked out that well. It is your thinking on immigration that is just not right for the country. Love may have brought illegals here. However, your argument lacks validity when those same illegals come here and do not learn the language, do not assimilate, and DEMAND we give them benefits paid for by us. What your friends love is the money they earn and send back "home". They feel no affinity for this country. They want the stuff it can provide. Their hearts belong to Mexico as do their loyalty. Our sovereignty as a nation means something to most Americans and we are tired of it being given away for ANY reason and that includes "love."

Amazing hostility to a guy I bet no one has seen in person. The reason for all the Jeb news lately is because he´s auditioning-he´s testing the waters. He´s making public speeches. He´s news. I attended a Jeb speech a few weeks ago. Everyone who attended looked happy at the end. There was a buzz. I spoke to 3 attendees who said the same thing, "great ideas, great speaker, but his name is Bush".
He defends Common Core and immigration positions without hostility or fuzzy logic. Those of you inclined to dismiss over these 2 positions should listen to a recent speech.
You´ll be impressed.
On the other 95% of issues important to conservatives in America he is on target. Strong military, smaller government, lower taxes, world leadership, unique America, school choice.
Give him a listen. He doesn´t bite.
Mister

Congratulations, OP! All that research finally paid off with a Must Read. Well done.

It makes some L-Dotters unhappy to hear that some of us do not believe Jeb Bush plans to run for president, at least not in 2016. But, that is my firm belief. He is near the top in all the polls, but it´s a feint.

It´ll be worse than the Romneybot invasion of 2012 - - much worse.

I´m thrilled to hear that Jeb Bush isn´t running. Such a campaign would be a mistake for conservatives, our party, and our country. I have been less thrilled to see posters who suggested Jeb might be running mocked by know-it-alls who dismissed the idea out of hand and likened those who posted on it to Pavlovian dogs. Recently, another group has started posting in favor of a Bush candidacy--surely just as "Pavlovian" a response. Yet only those who oppose Bush are treated disdainfully by those who claim to know he isn´t running.

What, in other words, has OP done to earn this condescension besides source news and post it here? And, if you´re so certain Bush isn´t running, why the compulsive need to deride those who think he might be and oppose that idea? There is an increasingly unseemly and desperate quality to all this. It makes me think lines are being drawn to preemptively discredit conservative posters who commit the deadly sin of pointing out just how out of touch the establishment GOP has become.

That Jeb Bush isn´t being politely but firmly ushered off the political stage at this point tells me that, Houston, we do indeed have a problem.

Four out of five DemonCrats agree: Jeb Bush will be an awesome Republican nominee in 2016.
And, by the way, the media attention to Bush is proof positive that the fix is in. 2016 is Hillary´s turn to win and if you don´t like the sound of that you obviously hate women.

I thought conservatives were supposed to be the thoughtful, rational types not given to wild mood swings and hyperbole based on insufficiently complete information. Maybe not. This piling on Jeb is more representative of Huffington Post than LCom posters.

Jeb Bush is an intelligent, decent, and very competent governor. Is he among my top group of candidates? No, he isn´t. My top group includes Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, and Bobby Jindal. But would I vote for Jeb if he ended up being our candidate, say against Hillary or any other Demo-communist? Absolutely yes, and without a second thought.

There are legitimate arguments against Jeb, and the whole "Bush mindset", namely, because they are patrician plutocrats who can´t seem to grasp (because they don´t experience it) the reality that we lesser mortals end up experiencing from the folly of their false compassion (for example, the "religion of peace" and the "illegal aliens who come here because of love"). It´s Bushy noblesse oblige gratuitously offered to show how compassionate they think they are.

That´s nonsense, of course. But it´s also nonsense to say some of the foolish things I´m seeing here. Enough.

Too much whining on this thread. Jeb Bush might run or he might not run and most of us will simply deal with it, either in disappointment or jubilation, as will be the case with a whole bunch of other candidate possibilities.

I´m not really keen on his statement that "immigration is an act of love" because we have a lot of insignificant civil violations that people are spending jail time for one reason or another. Think about unpaid parking or speeding violations. There are fines and sometimes jail time for non-payment.

Immigration is an act of civility and I´m trying to figure out what love has to do with it.

Prediction for 2016 primary. RINO pulls in 80% of the primary donations mostly from big money donors. Still cannot win. RINOs fund one of the conservative choices to split the conservative vote giving the RINO the win. Just fill in the names.

We do not need a third Bush. We do not need a RINO who thinks victory is acting like a Democrat. We do not need another Clinton.

If 2016 presidential election ends up be Bush III vs Clinton II, I hope there is a real third choice. Alot of people will be crying foul so it can happen. If the president is Bush III or Clinton II, nothing will really get fixed.

All of a sudden these people are coming out of the woodwork. Romney appeared the other day again to offer some advice on winning elections and how to disappear after you lose. Give it a pass Jeb.

I do not like political dynasties; don´t believe that is what this country was founded on. I don´t like democrat lite, i.e., moderate Republicans. But the other problem is that too many voters do not take their right to vote seriously; the blind obsession with Hillary! or Barack or any of the dozens of members of Congress who have been elected and re-elected over and over and over.

I can tell you right now that if Jeb pushes the same illegal nonsense his brother and McCaine pulled, and if the Party puts him forward, he is an absolute non-starter. People wait 10 years or more, spend a fortune, stand in line, to gain entry and citizenship here, and the Bushes (and Marco Rubio) seem to be the "y´all come" types.

Since we’re gathered here on this thread discussing staying home, I would like to thank all those here who wouldn’t vote for that RINO McCain in 2008 or that RINO Romney in 2012.

I was working in the asphalt business, but due to government policies regarding nasty fossil fuels (asphalt is an oil product) the material and fuel costs diminished private contracts. and competition for public work became cut-throat. Having a White House that panders to the environmentalist whackos by expanding EPA regulations has given me more time to be with my family. However, with the price of food escalating because we’re burning corn instead of feeding the livestock, our family dinners had to be downsized. I’ve been able to pick up side work from other people that are also trying to meet a shrinking budget, but the job market for construction has so many candidates for so few openings that the pay scale is going down, not that it matters, with 44 years of experience I’m “too old” anyway. Lot’s of young unemployed college graduates out there.

I think the wounded veterans would thank you too, since we’re in the process of giving away any victories they gained, just like Nam. And before I forget, I need to thank you for the scandals in the IRS, DOJ, NSA, and other agencies that zero can use against us. Thank you so much for letting this happen because no one is good enough for you if your preferred candidate didn’t make it to the final ballot. Apparently conservatives need one issue to keep them home while the lefties need one issue to get them to vote.

I’m always thanking the rats for the loss of the America I loved, I just wanted to thank you, too.

Excuse me, Jeb? Sneaking into this country instead of waiting your turn on line is "an act of love" and not breaking the law? Really? How do you feel about someone stealing bread because they´re hungry? Or robbing a pharmacy to support their drug habits? Using your silly logic would lead to chaos. Everyone who loves their family can now break the law. And this is why Jeb won´t survive the primary. But he can run if he wants to. It´s still a bit of a free country.

I will vote for anyone who is not a Democrat. Yes ... I´ll hold my nose again and vote for the Dole, McCain or Romney person as they would all be better than their demo-rat contenders. But I´d PREFER a real conservative! Follow Bill Buckley´s advice and vote for the person in the race most likely to win who is closest to you --- even if you agree only half the time as opposed to never!

The multi billion dollar annual cost of illegal aliens being maintained in our country is eye popping - small wonder all our systems are in free fall. For this reason alone,let alone consider the extreme folly of implementing Common Core curriculum renders Jebbie totally unelectable and Mr.Rove should take off his wizard´s pointy hat and retire ASAP.

Voters to GOP and White House:
You both are terrible
at this immigration thing
Washington Examiner, by Becket Adams    Original Article

American voters are angry with both the White House and Republican lawmakers for their bungled handling of the growing crisis on the border between the U.S. and Mexico, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The survey, which was conducted from July 9-13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, found that 58 percent of survey respondents disapprove of President Obama´s handling of the sudden surge of unaccompanied minors who have flooded the border. And of the self-identified Latino adults surveyed in the report, 54 percent say they are definitely unhappy with the White House´s

Confessions of a Liberal Gun Lover

Gun nuts aren´t always creatures of the political right. Consider your heavily-armed author´s position: I say gun ownership is a necessary line of defense against investment bankers, Wall Street lawyers, big business, the corporatized wing of the Democratic Party, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, ALEC, Nazis, gangbangers, meth fiends, cops and politicos who cut welfare and education programs while refusing to downsize the military or raise taxes on the rich. When I was living in New York City, I voted for Bill de Blasio. I was briefly a believer in Obama´s hope-change lines. I want single-payer healthcare

Christie to Test Presidential
Hopes in Iowa Trip

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey will make his most significant and elaborate return to the presidential arena this week amid indications that, despite his tribulations, his political standing has stabilized and his advisers see a possible path to the Republican nomination in 2016. Mr. Christie’s three-city swing through Iowa, the first state to have a say on the presidential race, will represent a highly public resumption of his White House ambitions after six months of scandal. It was deliberately constructed to showcase what his advisers believe distinguishes him from the emerging Republican field: his personality and ability to interact spontaneously

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal
Explains His Vision for a Path

Just days after Mitt Romney’s rout in 2012, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal declared that it was time for the GOP to “stop being the stupid party.” Twenty months later, Jindal is hard at work trying to make that the case.News The boyish-looking 43-year-old Republican is closing in on a decision whether to run for the White House in 2016, but first he is criss-crossing the country fundraising for GOP candidates and for his policy organization, America Next. The group has already outlined his proposals to repeal and replace Obamacare, with future plans on education reform and energy policy coming in

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham endorsed Joe Carr, the Republican Senate challenger to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), as a new poll shows that he is gaining significant support in his campaign. A new poll conducted by Triton Polling, shows that Carr has jumped sixteen points in his race against Alexander in Tennessee since May. Alexander now leads Carr 43-36 percent. The results show that 6.7 percent of voters chose long shot candidate George Flinn, four percent chose another candidate and 10.1 percent were not sure. In May the same poll showed Alexander leading by 44-20.

America´s Energy Nightmare

What do we need to turn our country around? Well, for starters, we need a president who stops getting his energy policies from Hollywood movies — and Hollywood liberals. Consider President Obama’s dithering when it comes to approving the Keystone XL pipeline. First proposed in 2008, this massive infrastructure project would bring low-cost crude oil from fields in Canada southward to the United States. Despite nearly six years of government reviews — and nearly four dozen oil and gas pipelines already safely operating between the U.S. and Canada — the Obama administration and the State Department still have not approved the

Brazilians waxed by Germany

Germany poured in the goals Tuesday to hand Brazil its heaviest World Cup loss ever, an astounding 7-1 rout in the semifinals that stunned the host nation. Miroslav Klose scored a record-setting 16th career World Cup goal in a five-goal spurt in the first half as Brazil’s defense was torn apart. The Germans reached their eighth final and will face either Argentina or the Netherlands on Sunday at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

Politics and the Christian Church

Whenever the subject of politics and religion comes up, some individuals wish to believe that the two are not connected. Yet, many people are concerned with the speed of America’s moral collapse. Throughout both the bible and world history, the two have collided (wars were fought over religion). When the Kings and Judges in the bible were godly, the people and the land flourished. On the other hand, the evil kings and judges brought famine and destruction upon the people and the land (does any of this sound familiar?) Our founding fathers were men of deep religious convictions based in

Have to Fight
Common Core in Court?

A legal battle over the fate of Common Core, the national education standards developed by a coalition of governors and educators and adopted by the vast majority of states, may be brewing in Louisiana. The state’s top education board voted on Tuesday to retain legal counsel, a sign it is gearing up for a lawsuit against Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal after he issued a series of executive orders in an attempt to withdraw the state from the Common Core.

Reality vs. Political Correctness:
Amnesty and the Fight for America´s Soul
American Thinker, by William Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 7/5/2014 5:38:55 AM     Post Reply
Dr. Ben Carson once made the observation that “political correctness” acts as a “muzzle” to quell legitimate dissent against the status quo. That is undoubtedly a true statement. But to drive in the stakes and build our intellectual ramparts on this point is little more than ceding coveted ground in an argument against a completely unfounded doctrine that presents falsehoods as facts. There is a more fundamental observation upon which we can mount our legitimate defense against the doctrine of “political correctness,” and it lies in the simplest inspection of the phrase “politically correct.” Inherent in those two words’ juxtaposition is

Chris McDaniel Offers $15,000
Reward for Voter Fraud Evidence
Roll Call, by Alexis Levinson    Original Article

State Sen. Chris McDaniel has offered 15 rewards of $1,000 each to any person who can “provide evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in voter fraud” in the Republican primary for Senate in Mississippi. On Thursday, his campaign announced the “challenge” in the latest episode in a circus of a Senate race. On June 24, incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., defeated McDaniel in a primary runoff by 6,700 votes. But McDaniel has refused to concede, alleging Cochran’s team paid for votes. McDaniel’s team also charges some people voted in the Democratic primary earlier in the month and then

Obama and the Culture of Death
American Thinker, by Eileen F. Toplansky    Original Article

By its own admission, the Arab world loves death more than it loves life. Consider that "during all periods of their history, the ancient Egyptians seem to have spent much of their time thinking of death and making provisions for their afterlife. The vast size ... and the ubiquity of their funerary monuments bear testimony to this obsession." Consider that the Palestinian world teaches its children to embrace shahid, or martyrdom. It is an aberrant culture where parents celebrate their own children´s deaths by the promotion of suicide terrorism.

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
