Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh rejects Jeb Bush comments
Posted on 06/15/2013 7:58:26 AM PDT by jimbo123
Rush Limbaugh snapped at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for calling Republicans too reactionary, saying the party lost in 2012 because it is considered wishy-washy.
Jeb Bush said that too many Republicans are reactionary, the conservative radio host said on his program Friday, according to a show transcript. Its a code word used by people who arent conservative to taint us as extremists.
So Jeb Bush, who we really like here, said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition today that he wasnt gonna be critical of the Obama administration. That really worked out for Romney, didnt it? Limbaugh responded.

Bush is speaking on CNN, NBC in the Wash Post.
GOPe is turning on high.
They will not recognize the reality, there. They are mining for liberal voters even now, and more than ever.
To quote Jesse Jackass: “Stay out the Bushes.”
Why does he really like him there? And does anyone say going to anymore?
Surprised that Rush yesterday did not state the origin of the use of the word “reactionary” - the Leninists, Marxists and communists in Russia during the revolution. Marx’s writings.
So, an element of communism has now crept into the GOP.
RIP - GOP. You are dead.
Another reason to reject E GOP
Jeb will be POTUS right after Rubio.
Have a seat Jeb...
BTW...shut your pie hole
I didn’t hear that part of Rush’s monologue, but if that’s a direct quote that he said “whom we really like here”, about Jeb, then he will be savaged for saying that and people will ignore the fact you are presenting that he took down Jeb’s speech.
Same with Rubio, if Rush personally likes Rubio but bluntly takes down his stupid “gang of 8” bill, people will ignore the essence of Rush’s put down (he HATES the bill and thinks Republicans are braindead STUPID for it) and instead attack Rush for liking Rubio.
All the big three - Rush, Hannity and Levin - are aghast at Republican STUPIDITY on this bill. But if they don’t hate Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio - just hate the bill - that’s not good enough for far too many people.
It’s good enough for me. And as the crunch comes, count on them to obsess over this disastrous bill in trying to stop it before it destroys America forever.
Why does he like him, you ask? He knows the entire Bush family personally and he personally likes them. However, do not allow yourself to be propagandized into believing that Rush is anything other than horrified by this stupid immigration bill that the Republicans are trying to jam down our throats.
But guess what? Who are the real reactionaries? Mainstream freaking Republicans. Democrats say, "We need amnesty." "Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, we do! Uh, well, maybe a smarter way, but, yeah, yeah." The Republicans are the ones who are always reacting. Whatever the Democrats say, Republicans react and just snap to. Karl Marx came up with the word.
The Bushes were catastrophes. They and their mealy mouthed “mechanic”Carl Rove should have blown his opponents out of the water.
They didn’t. They were BOTH cliffhangers.
So I guess Jeb is the one we’ll lose to Hillary with. I’ll find a third party candidate to vote for since I’m not a fertile, entrepreneurial immigrant.
Thank you. It is really important to be aware of the origin and source of these crappy vocabularies. I now hate JB more than I hate Zero, he’s trying to poison us from within.
Sort of like hate the sin. Love the sinner?
Spot on! I just made a similar comment about him on another thread.
Ronald Reagan started the revolution and George Bush stomped it out the day he became president...the GOP is a waste of time and money...
The GOP isn’t known as the Party of Stupid without cause.
Jeb: illegals are more fertile.
Rubio: illegals will pay for border security.
Some previous: illegals will save social security system.
The Party of Stupid? Many times they open their mouths and prove it.
Sorry, there is nothing to “really” like about Jeb Bush. And Rush was suckered by Rubio whom he really likes there.
McCain is the one who helped elect The Messiah - not George W. Bush. And the moral decline of the American people did not help either.
I don’t hate them - or anyone. I believe GW is a good man, but blind to the principles of our nation in the beginnning and how he damaged them.
Jeb however, is another McCain/Romney/Dole. He is pure politician. He seems to lack the character that his brother has.
And if the GOP is stupid enough to nominate him, we are indeed past recovery.
Without a “reset” that would be traumatic.......
I didn’t say “them”, I said “him”. Jeb.
I agree. George H W Bush never really did like Reagan. Bush saw himself as one of the elite, and to him, Reagan was just a rube.
I think the party started moving away from conservatism sometime around the late ninties. The 1994 election was the last hurrah for conservatives in the GOP.
The political demise of the Bush clan will be the only silver lining to the dark cloud of a future Hillary presidency.
The need to stop RINOS before they get going is urgent.
The RNC was as interested in stopping the Tea Party as the left.
9/11 increased Republican congressional seats, and also provided cover for W's liberal, big-spending programs of his first term.
After the unity and patriotism of 9/11 waned, we got the real W/Rove effect in 2006 and 2008, which were two consecutive catastrophes.
All either Bush did was ride in on the political capital and influence earned by others (Reagan, Gingrich, etc.), and then fritter it away with their Democrat-lite, big spending approach to government.
You captured it. Only thing I would add is the intentional squandering of the Tea Party/Conservative resurgence in 2010.
Yep, Bush won’t say anything bad about the democrats, but Romney couldn’t say anything bad about the democrats either.....and McCain refused to say anything bad about his opponent either. Wimps never win and it looks like Jeb inherited his father’s wimp factor.
You are correct. The MSM has their very usable mc cain to promote the 'it's bushes fault' during Bush's admin. It was so obvious, yet mc cain relished in being used by enemy for their purpose. He was rewarded with letting him run - he bowed to BHO yet couldn't stop kicking Bush whenever he got the chance. Is there something in the Arizona water that makes them dull and they can't see the obvious? He showed his rabid side some more during the primary with the conservative opponent for his seat. He truly is the enemy within.
Bush 1 abandoned the Reagan legacy and became a one term proposition for it. The Rockefeller wing of the GOP never understood Reagan and never bought into Reagan’s principles.
Jeb Bush is probably the best politician of the three - but he is a middle of the road type guy. Florida is a different animal - GOP Governor’s there - Crist/Bush - made a political living riding the fence because that is what gets you elected in Florida - not firebrand conservatism. That is why the Rockefeller GOP likes GOP Governors from Florida so much - the demographics favor them.
They are blind to the fact that it won’t translate to the conservative base in the rest of the country. As popular as Rubio was prior to the shamnesty debacle, I would argue Rubio would have had a better shot at being elected President than Governor of Florida.
I hate saying it, but this reality carries huge ramifications for the GOP nationally moving forward. Florida is gradually shifting towards becoming a reliable pickup for the rats in Presidential elections and when that happens, regardless of adding millions of reliable rat voters thanks to Rubio and gang, the GOP is done in the White House statistically - can’t get there without Florida.
Yep, the Bushes were less involved in 2010, but once again the GOPe, Beltway crowd has squandered the victories won by more conservative activists, this time the Tea Party in 2010, and set the party back once again.
They are all a bunch of squatters and wastrels who do nothing but fritter away the victories won by others. And now Boner and McConnel and others (Rove still hanging around) are continuing the 'work' of GHWB, W and Rove, etc.
I believe the husband and boys, listened to mama Barbara. They got their hatred of Reagan/conservatism through her. She hates them so - the impulsive woman couldn’t shut her mouth and made a comment about Sarah which showed her contempt. It was very wrong of her to say with contempt - Sarah should stay in Alaska. The old hag Barbara has many character flaws. IMO, she lost her ‘first lady’ appeal and even as a mother she sounded like not a good role model. Glad I didn’t grow up in that household.
“They are mining for liberal voters even now, and more than ever.”
Which is why the eGOP lost the last election and will lose even more going forward.
“I believe GW is a good man”
There is one thing we can say of GW: He loved this country and never meant it any harm. He did harm with TARP and PATRIOT, but that wasn’t his intention.
He got what he wanted and then got lazy - he loves friends, money, notoriety. and golf - so why rocked the boat now? He can speak of patriots but he isn't one.
“Bush(43) won both his elections. In 2004, he increased the number of congressional seats. He is hardly a catastrophe. “
If you like MORE and MORE G’ment, then you are correct, the Bush’s are not a catastrophe.
I for one prefer a LIMITED G’ment as defined by the Constitution.
> “Bush(43) won both his elections. In 2004, he increased the number of congressional seats. He is hardly a catastrophe.”
Not accurate. He didn’t do any of those things, we did it for him.
Here is the precise description:
Conservatives won the election for Bush in 2000 as they chose to support Bush over Gore in 2000 thinking Bush was more like them and was in any case the best that could be had under the circumstances. Many had misgivings as to his true conservative leanings and many had concerns about his experience and judgement but were persuaded that he would be surrounded by wise conservatives. The only consistent conservative trait that Bush expressed personally and through his policy formation brought by his inner circle of conservative advisers was in faith-based actions and orders.
Conservatives won the election for Bush over Kerry in 2004 because they thought with a GOP House and Senate he would be able to pass the conservative agenda. I personally worked night and day and gave every last cent I had to elect Bush in 2004 thinking major tax reform during his second term would be passed.
Bush’s second term was a disaster. We gave him the benefit of the doubt, we gave him a full GOP Congress and he squandered all of it.
No more Bushes, ever.
If Jeb Bush won the GOP primary, would he even get 30% in the general? These rinos, Christie, Ryan, Rubio, McCain, Romney are disgusting. I just can’t see voting for these types ever again. Supporting these buffoons is like spending money on a new transmission, engine, brakes in a beaten down old car. If the GOP puts up another rino, time to trade her in for a new model.
Florida will turn blue. If you go to the Tampa, St Pete, Clearwater area, you will have seen over the past 10 years a vast invasion by criminal illegal Mexicans. They are pouring in.
I am starting to believe that before they leave the Sewer of Mexico, that these criminals are "told" which state to settle in.
I can imagine the RATs orchestrating the invasion so as to turn critical RED states blue.
After all, how would these illegals just happen to know to invade the Clearwater area?
Well if nothing else works I predict Jeb’s wife will be an albatross. She is not a public figure. She speaks with an accent and I don’t see her as a plus on the campaign trail. The MSM will dredge up her little escapade of not declaring a bunch of stuff in customs when she came back to Fla from a trip to Europe.
In addition Jeb finished 32 right behind Crispy Kreme in the CPAC 2016 presidential vote. Without the conservative vote in the primaries Jeb will never get the nomination. I think Momma Bush is pushing her favorite son to run and I don’t really think Jeb’s heart is in it anyway.
Knocking off Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan will be harder than he thinks. Especially Rand and Cruz.
And Bush lost us the House in 06, with his bailouts.
