Posted on 02/07/2014 7:28:32 AM PST by Reaganite Republican
Thanks for putting these together. A reminder of what a moderate flake this guy is.
I think that any of the Bush family are people of much more moral integrity than the sum total of the vast majority of congresscritters.
But...they’re all RINOS.
And I loathe, hate, despise, and f*rt in the general direction of RINOS.
(For balance, I should mention what I do in the exact direction of liberals - I dream of taking a bodacious Obama upon their heads.)
These Bushes are like kudzu, you can’t get rid of the stuff.
Two words re Jeb Bush: Terri Schiavo
You are welcome
I can’t stand Jeb Bush
What gets me is how Jeb talks about the GOP like it’s WAY too conservative and intolerant of moderates
That’s why they ran McCain and Mittens (directly opposed by the base), now they’re talking right wing extremists like Christie in 2016 or you, right Jeb?
I fail to see how anybody can logically disagree with these statements, as such.
When a new voter in '16 was born, Reagan had been in the nursing home with Alzheimer's for several years. Nostalgia for the good old days of the 80's is not going to appeal.
This has to be one of the most disgusting, disingenuous and ignorant posts on FR in a long time.
When people say they miss Reagan, they are talking about the timeless ideas Individual rights, limited government and a believe in free enterprise that Reagan so eloquently.
Reagan spoke about brilliantly about IDEAS, not himself.
The disgusting Statist Jeb Bush was directly attacking Reagan's defense of America as Founded; for Reagan's belief that government is the problem, not the solution; for Reagan's belief in Constitutional government
You see, Jeb, the Statist Bush like the rest of his slimy family worship at the Alter of State Power. For the entire Bush family, the all powerful State is the ideal.
How simple does one have to be to think it is about "the 80s."
Reading comprehension not your strong suit, is it?
I said that to a person born in 1998, the 80s is ancient history. Even if they have a conservative bent, talk of Reagan is not likely to flip their switch very far.
I’ll try to explain it very simply for you.
I was born in the mid-50s. The first year I would have been eligible to vote, under present laws, would have been 1974.
Even had I had a liberal tendency, talk about the good old days under Truman would not have been an effective way to appeal to me. No matter how much I might have agreed with what Truman supposedly stood for. I would have been interested in liberal (or conservative) ideas for 1974.
To appeal to the possible conservative 18 year old voter in 2016, we need to develop ideas that they think are relative to them. While Reagan holds symbolic value to you, and to me, I can guarantee he doesn’t to someone born in 1998.
See, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
Remember Reagan giving amnesty?
LOL expected.... sad.
The direct thrust of your original comments were NOT what you explained in response post.
You original comments were disingenuous; a indirect slight at Reagan.
All who have comprehended what Jeb stated about Reagan know that Jeb was indirectly attacking Reagan's core Conservative beliefs.
The ideas Reagan believed in are timeless and would appeal to any generation.
BTW, please learn your history, Reagan was never in a nursing home.
When I comment on specific statements, saying that I am doing so, I am by definition not dragging in other things and deep background regarding the speaker and his relationships with others.
IOW, you may very well object to the speaker and his comments in context. My point was that the quoted words themselves were a truism.
Which is exactly what I said. Anything else you read into it because you bring it, not because I said or implied it.
