Jeb Bush disqualifies himself as GOP nominee in 2016: Thats one down and a dozen or so to go BY COACH COLLINS, ON JULY 5TH, 2013 By Emma Karlin, staff writer
Election years that have no incumbent president make for crowded Democrat and Republican primaries. Consequently, the quicker a Party settles on a nominee the quicker it can start to coalesce behind the person they want to put in the White House. When a potential candidate disqualifies himself early on, it is very helpful. Jeb Bush the former Governor of Florida has disqualified himself and therefore has become helpful to the Republican selection process.
Bush has co-authored an opinion piece urging House Republicans to do Chuck Schumers bidding and pass an amnesty bill. Making baseless claims that adding as many as 40 million unskilled and disinterested people will somehow make America better and stronger, Bush reminds us of why he should never be president.
Following the RINO/Democrat mantra of blame America first Bush makes the totally illogical assertion that, Illegal immigration results now because there are too few lawful low-skill job opportunities for immigrants.
Thereafter, Bush adroitly switches his topic from illegal immigration to immigrants and their benefit to our economy. He doesnt want to talk about illegal aliens who are supposed to be the subject of his remarks, but why should he? Staying away from anything that even looks like a condemnation of illegal aliens is a smart move for a RINO looking forward to support from the Democrat controlled media.
Praising the Senates immigration bill, Bush shows us his naiveté claiming it, reduces family preferences, increases the number of high-skilled visas, expands guest-worker programs, and creates a merit-based immigration system for people who want to pursue the American dream. He continues to embarrass himself with a final important claim writing, The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projects that the Senate bill would reduce the budget deficit by more than $1 trillion over 20 years, boost the economy and increase productivity, without reducing the wages of U.S. workers. In short, it advances Republican economic growth objectives.
The rest of his remarks are boilerplate blah blah blah, about, sound policy and principle. Okay Jeb the Democrats and the media will love you; we get it. Thanks for showing us who you are this early in the process. Now go away. Thats one down and a dozen or so to go.
Thank you, Jesus!
JEB is one nominee wannabe, that if he ran, I would NOT have voted for him, even if the other candidate was Hillary Clinton.
That's the plan.
I wish enough of the white middle class understood this, so that they would do everything within their power to change their lifestyle in order to opt out of being the class which pays taxes to subsidise the parasites and their supporting structure, the ‘rats.
Let the people who are pushing for amnesty, etc, pay the taxes to subsidise their illegal nannies, gardeners, and cleaning women.
Some people are always the last to know.
I am happy that he dropped out. I suspect that the Bushes, unlike the other RINOs, actually want to win if they run and the odds of another Bush winning at this point are probably calculated as “slim.”
Actually, I think its Jeb Bush’s progressivism that will do him in.
Jeb Bush has a heavy handed, Liberal Republican approach. It’s scary to think what he might do as President.
Jeb is as dead to me as Marco Rubio.
NEVER FORGET....Jeb Bush was governor of Florida and GWB was president when Terri Schiavo was "allowed to die". No wonder they're not complaining about Obama's death panels.
I’m likin’ Bobby Jindal/Nikki Haley for 2016.
It's my turn!
Go all in- West/Palin. Lets go down swinging
Nope; Slim left town, so that only leaves None
AKA:The Who? campaign
Go all in- West/Palin
Curious. What does West have that would make him a top voter getter nationwide. He lost his CD by some 5,000 or so votes less than Romney got in it. If he can’t draw as well as Romney in his own district how can he be successful nationally?
“I am happy that he dropped out.”
You may have misunderstood this blogger. Jen did not drop out. The blogger believes, by Bush’s statements, that will disqualify him in the eyes of GOP.
I believe Bush thinks just the opposite. I bet he thinks this actually makes him MORE of a viable candidate.
“It’s my turn! “
Barbara...you’ve had your turn.
There IS a God! (Well, I already knew THAT, but still...)
*Happy Dance** **Happy Dance** **Happy Dance**
I am relieved. Imho, the real force behind this family is matriarch Barbara Bush, and that is not acceptable.
But his last name is “Bush” - what other qualification do we need?
Jeb’s mommy isn’t going to be happy about this.
‘Im likin Bobby Jindal/Nikki Haley for 2016.’ No. No no
COULTER/HALEY. ...WE GET 2. beauties. A brainy blonde, a smart brunette........ stunning, fun pressers and mesmerizing SOTU’s
“Jeb Bush disqualifies himself as GOP nominee in 2016”
Yes, but tomorrow he can say, “That was yesterday. Today is today.”
Never believe a politician and particularly a RINO or dimlib.
Umm...the same thing BHO has.
But aside from that in West's case, he does have something more substantial: his character and a compelling story.
But you are right...he would not be a major draw to the Presidential spot.
Better that he's the backup.
Palin/West is the ticket
