Skip to comments.Distractions aside, Jeb Bush speech stood out as sober, serious (Fertile immigrant amnesty alert)

Republicans considering running for president over the past six years have been delivering red meat to the base at conservative confabs.
But Jeb Bush Friday did not fit the mold.
The former Florida governor, mulling a 2016 bid, followed the retiring firebrand Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) at the Faith and Freedom Coalition. But while Bachmann and the other speakers here, including Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) -- the 2012 vice-presidential nominee -- treaded familiar turf by railing against government and President Barack Obama, Bush didnt go there.
I wont be pointing out the failures of the Obama administration, Bush said to silence here. Theyre clear for those that want to see them.

Some of us did show up and vote for romney... we puked up in our mouths when we did it but we did vote. I will NEVER vote for another Bush.
Lol, just what I was looking for to get an objective take on Jebbie’s speech: a write-up from NBC by someone with a Latino name.
And we all know that NBC is so interested in helping the Republican Party choose a winning nominee......NOT!
Yes because we’ll be able to tax Carlos Slim and set our LEO on their drug dealers.
Jeb, listen to your mother.
Strange request to look up something. What is the purpose of all these demands from Rome about illegal invasion? I think politics has a pretty good reflection as to what is acceptable by Catholic politicians. Remember Stupak? Biden? Pelouise? etc? Why is it reality is totally ignored?
Jeb Bush = FAIL.
And that’s being generous. Enough damage was done by the first two “compassionate conservatives.” We can’t handle a third loser from this blighted family.
I voted but i agree. If thats where we go then those in power in that party need to lose so badly that we have new leadership.
Great! Just what we need - more compassionate conservatism, or is it “a kinder, gentler nation?” /sarc
I hear Lyndsey Graham's the bee's knees.
Their only backs they have is their own.
It may not have always been that way, but America sure showed us what "The land of the free" really meant!
The question is - will he have the guts to point out Hillary’s faults?
I don't think they care about their conservative base anymore. I think they're all about wooing middle of the road liberals from the RAT party as well as the crimigrant vote.
How does the push and shove for US to take on an invasion of illegals help his family? How many children does Jeb have? No this is a religious loyalty his brother called 'compassionate conservatism'.
A winning strategy so far, eh?
This is the kind of gassy commentary about Jeb you’d expect to hear from a guy named Domenico Montanaro.
They are not coming from Rome
If you want to make a statement claimed as fact any thinking person would request that you do a little research
But Rome is not directly instructing our government. Prove it if that’s wrong
And the catechism which does instruct carholics actually instructs them to rebuke illegal immigrants and abide by the law
Anyone not underrstanding this is as wrong as any enatorial pushing for this travesty
“More intact families?”
And Hispanic-owned businesses employ less than 2% of the American workforce even though Hispanics comprise more than 12% of the American population.
