Mitt Romney may have encountered a tough crowd addressing a group of Latinos Thursday, but former Florida Governor Jeb Bush transitioned easily from Spanish to English and drew loud applause on the issue of education reform and school choice and complimented the presumptive Republican nominees rival, President Obama.
At the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials or NALEO in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Bush began by giving Romney a nod.
We heard an excellent speech, I thought, from Mitt Romney, who is a supporter of education reform and of school choice, Bush said.
However, in his next breath he aligned himself with Romneys rival and repeated what has gained him headlines over the last few weeks, but he deeply believes in: Working across party lines works as well as having a more open debate.
I am proud of the fact that as a former governor I was asked by [Education] Secretary [Arne] Duncan to introduce our current president of the United States in a high school in Miami because we share common ground, Bush said to cheers from the crowd. And I dont know about you, but when we find common ground we shouldnt fight anymore, we should move on and build on that success. Apparently one can get in trouble when they say these kinds of things, but I happen to believe its the American way."

I wish that family would just be quiet and stay in the background. Please.
If the Bush’s want Romney elected they need to shut the heck up about the common ground crap. It did McCain no good at all.
At some point, you'd think the Bushes would learn...
1. It's true.
2. The GOPe thinks this is a good thing!
Did Romney's Secret Service detail order the knives and forks be confiscated like they did for Obama's speech?
Jeb Bush and Bill Clinton (Hillary’s proxy)
Both want to screw over their rivals...both are thinking of 2016!!!
Is this a good example of the “Kiss of Death” for Romney?
Shamnesty aka anti-Americanism is their common bond. Stay out da Bushes. Shamnesty pimps.
Romney, Pelosi and Reid working together to craft solutions.
Yep, Romney will surely save us.
Ever notice how the media will happily quote ANY Republican willing to trash conservatives? But they almost NEVER quote Democrats willing to trash liberals?
This should give Bush something to think about - there aren’t any “mavericks’ on the left side - the MSM totally ignores turncoats... ( well, to thsir side)
Most of the time when we hear about Latino elected officials here in CA they have been caught with their hand out. Not that we don’t have all races of corrupt RATs here, but many of the recent cases have been Latino’s.
I guess that the SS knows enough about these people to be wary..
We need a Bush-Purge from GOP.
Of course Romney has common ground with BHO, they are both liberals.
Jeb feels he has common ground with Obama? Oh, was Jeb born in a foreign country as well and lies about it? I did not know that.
Is there a Bush Exile group around?
You're right, so take your advice and shove it you mouth piece for evil Romney.
but when we find common ground we shouldnt fight anymore,
Conservatives have NO common ground with evil LIBERAL POS Romney - that's who you are pandering too because they don't/will not bow to evil as you already have the easily deceived and the weak and fearful.
Who are these conservatives you speak of?
I swear, this has been the most depressing, dispiriting presidential election season I’ve ever experienced.
And it should be the EXACT opposite, with the invigorating goal of getting the worst, most abjectly anti-American POS out of the White House. But here again the whole rancid GOP-e crowd makes the race seem not even worth fighting. It’s like watching a Democrat primary of a far-off state, between an unhinged Marxist and a big-government lib.
