Skip to comments.Jeb Bush Working on Book about Immigration
Posted on 09/24/2012 8:58:56 PM PDT by WilliamIII
A hot button issue in the upcoming elections and one of the most contentious topics in the Republican Party is also the subject of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Bush has started work on a book about immigration and landed a deal with Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster, for "Immigration Wars: Forging An American Solution." Threshold announced Wednesday that the book is scheduled for next spring and will be co-authored by conservative attorney and activist Clint Bolick. Financial terms were not disclosed. "Drawing upon history and American ideals, Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick outline a courageous and comprehensive strategy to bridge the partisan divide and set our nation's immigration policy on a just and rational course," Threshold said in a statement. "The book will present a comprehensive solution based on two core principles: Immigration is vital to America's future, fueling its growth, vibrancy and creativity; yet any true and enduring solution must adhere to the rule of the law." The 59-year-old ex-governor has been urging his fellow Republicans to take on a more moderate tone on immigration, saying hard-line policies have led to lost elections. Bush himself was elected twice in a state with a substantial Hispanic population.

Should be a big seller among the illegal alien crowd. Something for them to read while hiding “in the shadows”. Sorry Jeb. I’m not seeing a best seller here.
Milquetoast Republican candidate 2016.
I’ll vote Palin though. In a minute. :D
Somebody write a book on how the BUSH females can't make their beds or walk their dogs without an illegal alien cleaning up after them.
Let me write a book about LAZY good for nothing, Republican Texas women who can barely wipe their slothful behinds, much less cook and clean for their own children without a squad of non-English-speaking slaves.
Lazy slatterns. Bar can't cook for her huge brood, so she gets slaves to do it for her, which may explain with GW speaks good Spanish but can't get a sentence in English correct. Laura has to lie around reading novels and can't even take Scottie for a walk. The twins loves them some abortions and same-sex marriages because they so want an evening in Hyannis Port.( Read Lazy Laura's bio if you don't believe me.) Leave us alone. Go away, Bushes.
NO MORE BUSHES
I’ll only read it if he includes a chapter on his entitled, designer clothes smuggling, wife.
Oh. Can’t wait.
Good grief, Mamzelle. Really?
Seems that some in the MSM are wishing for a Jeb Bush 2016 run. F**K THAT!!!! If he’s ever the nominee, I’ll switch to Independent and write off the GOP.
IMHO, if the GOP blows this I agree with Laura Ingraham...shut down the GOP!!! Useless as teets on a bull.
I sense a good chunk of the GOP rank-and-file will revolt in one manor or another.
The only people keeping me in the party are West, Cruz, DeMint and PALIN.
Oh God, what an exciting read that will be. Why not title it: “My fellow GOP’ers are Racists but not me because I lived in Florida and have an Hispanic wife plus it’s tons of votes”.
This should be amusing.
Not very interesting and probably not a very good seller, but it should be amusing.
Well I slept with more Latinas than I care to admit here (lots) and married one...gorgeous but crazy.
and she was and is a big liberal goofball and is my thankfully ex wife
most minority immigrants are and vote leftist because it is manna held out for them and they are brainwashed to be victims as minorities
allowing them to flood in here has killed us’
it is why Obama is “tied” or better even though he is an abysmal failure
these people are voting for him by at least 70% because he is one of them...a MINORITY...skin, religion whatever
it's all one big anti white and anti Christian and anti traditional dreadnought beating the snot out of us
Jeb Bush is an idealistic fool
I detest those damned Bushes
Ya got This one pegged!
The RINO’s are a national suicidal kind of group and they like to lose too
Note all Jeb Bush's liberal buzz-phrases in the above preview of the former governor's forthcoming tome:
".....need a courageous and comprehensive strategy"
".....bridge the partisan divide"
".....a just and rational course"
".....vibrancy and creativity"
".....take on a more moderate tone."
".....need a broader approach"
".....have to have a better tone going forward"
Note also the innate arrogance, the phony flights of oratory, the condescension, the digs that the amnesty thinking of us potato-faced peasants is NOT vibrant, creative, broad, rational, courageous or willing to bridge divides....and that our "tone" sucks.
What gives these self-appointed aristocrats the presumption to talk like this to us ???
Some may call it authoritative leadership, I call it self-perceived elitism and just plain gall.
Why is it that no one asks this dickless fark what federal laws we actual citizens can break with impunity, and not get shipped back home to some third world toilet, for free, after zero time in the slam, special education funding and free medical care?
"We've got to have a better tone going forward over the long haul for sure. You can't ask people to join your cause and then send a signal that you're really not wanted. It just doesn't work."
= = = = =
How about first enforcing the laws already on our books?
Right on, Leni!
His high-minded attitude stinks.
Not really interested, Jeb. Bet he does not have a G-D thing to say about, or interview with, the LEGAL IMMIGRANTS to the United States who stood in line and paid and did everything right. Those from Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and elsewhere. It's alllllll going to be about accomodating the hissssssssspaniccccs. Just you watch. And FIXING our system is code for AMNESTY. No way around it. That is their "fix" of the system. Not buying it, compadre Senor Yeb.
He is working hard towards the globalist goals.
Bush needs to spend his time 'helping' someone else - maybe an American or two for a change.
Somebody’s got to come up with a policy, or things will just limp along as they are - from one Democrat election year amnesty to the next. Glad Bush , who has the freedom of not running for anything right now, has the courage to put forward his ideas and take away one of the Dems’ favorite weapons.
So he is jockeying to be the next RINO to be shoved down our throats?
In a narcissistic smugness contest between Jeb “Amnesty” Bush and Jon “China” Huntsman, Bush would win hands down.
If only the great unwashed Tea Partiers would learn the errors of their ways and accept these “leaders” as benevolent dictators.
Bonus question: Other than party affiliation, what would be the difference between having Obama, Jeb, or Huntsman as President?
Answer: Different levels of competence but all pursuing exact same agenda.
No more "Compassionate Conservative" Booshes......ever!!!
Jeb is setting himself up for his presidential run.
And don’t you just know, It’s going to be Jeb Bush or the Dems once again. The game we never get tired of playing.
Let me guess. Let em all stay? Erase the border?
Elian Gonzalez could not be reached for comment.
Jeb is a traitor.
Yeah, really. Read LB’s autobiography and find out what she really thinks of conservatives. This is what makes so many RINOs—it’s the wives. It’s why we got that Bush amnesty pushed on us. Jeb is the smug and self righteous one of the family. He thinks because he married. Hispanic woman that he’s MOSES for immigrants.
We “conservatives” Jeb have no real problem with immigration (you blithering idiot - like all Bush’s)...it’s ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION we are tired of.
“....bridge the partisan divide”????
How can you do that when the other “party” are statist a-holes?
Go away Jeb. Porn got rid of the bush in the ‘90’s. The GOP needs to also.
Looking back through the posts, I see a lot of FReepers are picking up on the “smug pompous Jeb.”
What you said!
Even the Asian immigrants as in Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean vote Democrat by 70%-30%. Hindus/India vote Democrat plus get minority preference on SBA loans. (Small Business Administration)
Jeb Bush is useless and hardly an intellect to be writing books. Sure he was better than a Dem as Florida’s governor. But that is about it
