Jeb Bush warns 2012ers on hitting Obama.(Mega Barf)
Politico ^ | 08-23-11 | DAN HIRSCHHORN

Posted on 08/23/2011 8:48:13 PM PDT by Lazlo in PA

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush warned the Republican presidential hopefuls against ideological intransigence and knee-jerk opposition to President Barack Obama on Tuesday, saying they risk turning off middle-of-the-road voters.

Asked by Fox News host Neil Cavuto if some Republicans go too far in their criticism of Obama, Bush said flatly, “I do. I think when you start ascribing bad motives to the guy, that’s wrong. It turns off people who want solutions.

Good thing this man is on the scene to get everyone to tone town the vitriol and get us back on track and running like McCain's campaign in '08. When is this horses @$$ going to dry up and blow away? This moderate Jeb also goes on to say that he is fine with tax increases.

I sort of agree with Jeb. The only thing you have to do is point to Obama’s economy. Many people don’t get the liberalism vs conservative fight. But show them the results of 4 years of Obama, and they will get it.

Now I know the Bushes are enemies of regular Americans. I mean you are talking about this creep in our WH...who has committed so many impeachable offenses...and we are to play nice....is this a back hand slap at Rick Perry? Perry has been stepping on Mr. Downgrade’s toes!

Jeb said he liked Romney. He also denied there was a rift between their family and Perry. LOL

And people wonder why so many people are resistant to ever nominating any Bush again.

Yes, and in the same breath he takes a thinly veiled barb at Perry.

You do understand even liberals are acknowledging their denials about the rift are fairly...transparent.

Romney is their surrogate this cycle because the well is too poisened to run Jeb.

We went the kid gloves route in ‘08. Obummer steamrollered McLame. It was a massive failure. You saw how fast Obummers polls sank in just a week of Trump pummeling him everyday. People are angry. Time to direct that anger squarely on the WH. Hit Obummer hard everyday.

Where "ideological intransigence" means both expressing and living one's principles. We can't have that, eh Jeb? It's just so gauche.

"Many people don’t get the liberalism vs conservative fight."

Then it's time to teach them. If we win on the economy alone, then what do we do when the economy improves and some Slick Willie type comes along, talking smooth platitudes, and shoving stealth tyranny down our throats? If we don't start converting some of these fair-weather voters, we'll never accomplish a damn thing.

Agreed. Basically, Jeb is saying it's OK to criticize Obama on the economy, but don't JUST criticize. Repubs have to talk about solutions.

True.

I knew the whole Bush-Perry fight was a setup by Perry Apologists to make Perry look tough and independent.

In too many bad ways, they were like two peas in a pod.

After watching Tokyo Rove tap dance around and lie on the Bush/Perry feud tonight on Ted Baxter, I am fully convinced that Rove is 100% Mittens all the way. When Mittens fails to beat Obummer in ‘12, he will have a ready job pushing the new establishment man, Jeb, in ‘16. I don’t trust that porky pig any farther than I can throw him, which ain’t far.

In the real world Bush is still unpopular and Jeb can’t run for President as his family strategized because no one wants anyone else from that family in the W.H. right now except a few elites.

In the real world the Bush family decided to go after the sitting governor of Texas by running a more “acceptable” Republican against him.

In the real world that family called conservatives who had given them elected office more then once racists and elitists. I will never be over that betrayal.

Yes, there are times I can give Jeb and GWB or even their father credit for a few things but I cannot and will not forget how they belittled and trashed the conservative base time and again. Thanks to that lot “conservative” lost it’s popularity. Since they left it’s rebounded and polls over 40% with no other term even close.

I sort of agree with Jeb, too. There’s no reason whatsoever to make the election about President Obama’s motives. I have absolutely no idea why he’s doing what he’s doing. We could speculate, but we don’t know. Frankly, it simply doesn’t matter. What matters is WHAT he’s doing and the harmful results.

It’s fun and interesting to discuss the president’s motives, but politically, there’s nothing to be gained from it. Those who believe he’s out to destroy the country are already going to vote against him.

I believe Jeb when he said that his family speaks highly of Governor Perry. Why wouldn’t they?

The Bush family speaks highly of almost everyone! GHWB and First Lady Barbara have even referred to Bill Clinton as a *son*. All in good humor, of course.

Of course, the First Lady also said something sort of snarky about Sarah Palin staying in Alaska, but that’s not the subject of this thread.

The Bush’s are gracious to a fault.
