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, thats wrong. It turns off people who want solutions.

Screw you, Jeb. Go away.
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.

Kiss my azz, Jeff. Go find a Country Club full of RINO’s and stay there.
Yeah, not telling the truth about Obama is really going to help us win. Brilliant, Jeb.
The curse of the Bushes, moderation.
If you stand in the middle of the road long enough, sooner or later, you’re going to get run over!
Tea and crumpets anyone?
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 Revealed: Clearly displaying himself as just another “out of touch” politician.
I’ll take your tea and trade you a RINO.
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.
The Everybody Loves Barry show. Sorry Jeb. This Don’t Say Anything Bad About The Messiah technique didn’t work for McCain in ‘08. It won’t work in 2012.
He may know how to properly run a state government, but the moron has no clue about what Obama is all about...get informed dumbo...
Ive never heard anybody in my family say anything but good things about Rick Perry, Bush said. Maybe with Karl hes around here all the time, you can ask him. Not with my brother and not with me.
Right...let us just stay calm and watch...while this clown completely destroys and dismantles our country!
No more Bushes in the White House!
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.
What an asinine thing to say.... The Bushs are not the enemy of anyone
Is it possible for anyone to say something that people can simply disagree with ?
Not on FR anymore ...
Instead we get the Choir Boys of Hate on Parade telling us that whoever said something that offends their sensibility is the Devil.
Spout off all you want here cause it sure as hell wont play in the real world
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.
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.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
We’ll see ya the sign’n Jed!
” Screw you, Jeb. Go away. “
What do we have to do to get rid of the “Shrubs “
Hey Jeb STFU! Who asked you? Don’t worry you and Porky Pig Faced Rove can have your own DC cocktail parties. Just know that Palin and/or Perry aren’t inviting you two to theirs!
Jeb Bush is pro-amnesty for illegal immigrants, and so is Barack Obama. IMHO, Jeb wants amnesty to succeed with BO making it happen.
The Bushes and Obamas are actually kin folk
Is Karl Rove whispering these sweet nothings in your ear, Jeb?
There's an old saying in Florida - I know it's in Northeast New England (Kennebunpork), probably in Boston too - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again.
Yhello!? The RINO (NWO) fix is in.
Here is an out-dated list of GOP elite.

Governor Jeb Bush
Governor Bobby Jindal
Senator John McCain
Governor Mitt Romney
John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mike Pence, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, John Carter, Pete Sessions, David Dreier, Kevin McCarthy, Roy Blunt

In addition to her Fox assignment, Perino is a “chief issues counselor” at Burson-Marsteller, a global public relations firm. In November 2009, she was nominated by President Barack Obama to serve on the Broadcasting Board of Governors, an agency overseeing government-sponsored international broadcasting, and was confirmed by the Senate on June 30, 2010. In 2009, functioning as Karl Rove’s family spokeswoman, she informed the press about Rove’s divorce in 2009. In 2010, she started teaching a class in political communications part-time at George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management.

I actually threw up.
Translation: Your nominee needs to lose so I can run in 2016.
Jeb will be very upset if the GOP presidential candidates don’t sign up for the Cotillion program he is putting on in Florida.
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.
We'll take care of it, Jebbie - not to worry.
Don’t these Bushtards have a fancy compound they can go to and leave the rest of us alone?
Good heavens, Jeb, did you not pay attention to McCain’s campaign?
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.
Even O’Reilly isn’t stupid enough to believe your grand conspiracy idea. He called Rove out on his behavior toward Perry tonight and the candidate he is actually supporting. Hint...not Perry.
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.
Just a few months ago some here suggested we go with Jed...Why, he was just a dandy peachy governor...Had a dog and was a genuine conservative who had nice suits.
