Not Another Bush – Ever!!!!

2013 March 7

It appears that Jeb Bush and the Bushies are making plans for a 2016 Presidential run. Not content with two Bushes derailing the Reagan Revolution, plunging the country into debt and nearly destroying the GOP twice, it looks like a third one is on the horizon and his son, George P. is just getting started in Texas.

Jeb, why not take the advice your mother – Old Lady Bush – gave Sarah Palin about 18 months ago: stay home and shut the “f” up!

WASHINGTON — As political re-entries go, Jeb Bush’s has been rocky.

After watching from the sidelines since before President Obama was first elected, Mr. Bush, a former Republican governor of Florida, injected himself into the debate over revamping the nation’s immigration system this week — and in the process opened the door just a crack to a 2016 run for the White House.

The vehicle for Mr. Bush’s return to the national conversation was, as it often is for politicians these days, the publication of a new book. In Mr. Bush’s case, the book argues for an overhaul of the nation’s immigration system and legal status for illegal immigrants, but not a path to citizenship.

Mr. Bush quickly found himself backpedaling from that position on Tuesday. In fact, he told a series of interviewers that he could easily support granting citizenship in the context of a comprehensive approach to immigration.

“I have supported both — both a path to legalization or a path to citizenship — with the underlying principle being that there should be no incentive for people to come illegally at the expense of coming legally,” Mr. Bush said on CNN.

His immigration back-and-forth drew scorn from Democrats, who took pleasure in comparing him with another Florida Republican, Senator Marco Rubio, who is at the center of a bipartisan effort to devise an immigration overhaul and who counts Mr. Bush as a mentor.

Earlier this week Jeb was a guest on “The Morning Joke” and spoke about the gap between the rich and poor in the United States, which he labeled “unAmerican.” But, Jeb stopped well short of contributing the Bush family fortune to help the poor.

If the GOP wants to re-invent itself, why not do so as the party of the unrepresented middle class? If it does that, the last thing it needs is anyone named Bush running for anything.

The last thing this country needs is another Bush, especially one who makes Brother Jorge look like “Sheriff Joe” on immigration. What the GOP needs to do is to morph into the party of the unrepresented middle class.

    The reason they call them dynasties is that they have a beginning and an end. The Bush Dynasty ended in 2006.

    Enough.

    Could a Jeb Bush run along with efforts by Karl Rove and other establishment elements bring the end to the GOP? For once last night Republicans showed some b@lls, but, for thr most part, it was the conservative wing of the Senate that did the pushing.

    If anyone believes that Jefferson Hotel dinner last night had to do with anything other that obama’s falling approval ratings, I got some oceanfront property in Kansas for sale. It has a view of the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico from the third floor bonus room.

    Graham’s head is so far up his ass he can’t tell whether it’s day or night. I wish he would just change Parties and be done with it.

    Lucy: “You REALLY mean we are supposed to use that document?”

    And that is if as JR says he pulls his head out of his a$$ for a moment. Otherwise its “mfftfttt”.

    Well I have nothing against Jeb Bush. As governor of Florida he did all right. But I have to agree the country is Bushed out and I certainly would not want to see him run.

    Good news. Gun grabber Caitlan Halligan could muster only 51 votes in her appointment to the DC Court of Appeals.

    Bamster squeals unfair treatment.

    Wants his will to be done.

    Today’s question. Why would obama want pump shotguns banned?

    Well, perhaps they don’t want to face one when they come for your other guns.

    For once I was interested in someone from the Gop.

    I am a new member in the Stand with Rand Club.

    I am sick of Lucy and Mccain plus their girlfriend Ayotte.

    http://www.prudentinvestor.com/2012/01/germany-to-begin-abolishing-cash.html
    “According to a report in German alternative media Kopp online Germany will begin to abolish cash transactions step by step from August 2012, putting the EU directive 2009/110/EC (PDF) into practice. Germany is the next country after Greece, where the ECB recommended such cash payment limits in May 2010 , and Italy, where cash transactions above €1,000 have been limited since December 4, 2011.
    While the official reasoning says this is to combat tax fraud, it is actually another step towards total surveillance in the European Union. All forms of electronic payments can be traced completely.

    The FEDs are buying stock interests like crazy. That’s the only reason the markets are up.

    Not buying the earnings blowout garbage. If that was true then why aren’t companies hiring?

    Ted Cruz is the only memeber of the Senate worth a damn. Period

    Eph, 29,

    True as is. But keep in mind, Cruz is a lawyer by trade and I never trust lawyers. But yes I like what I see from him so far. But his political career is young.
