There was a time when I thought that I could vote for Jeb. Now? Hell no.

There is little doubt that this is a concerted, meticulously planned effort by the GOPe to destroy Ted Cruz.

I’ve got a message for Jeb The Bush:

LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER!

Me too. At one time I thought he did a great job as governor of FL and might be good as a president, but that has gone completely out the window. I’ve already told all my friends to beware of Jeb. He’s just another Romney/McCain republican.

Won't work. Cruz will be a senator for at least 5 more years, and he has real power in that position. Power to disrupt the liberal agenda. He wasn't going to get a chairmanship anyway.

They can do nothing to him.

I'm loving it. That's why I voted for him.

It is amazing how McCain, Jeb Bush, and the rest of the RINOs are only criticizing REPUBs these days. Not a word about RAT policies trashing the country and hurting people.

The DemocRATS know who their target is.

Hey Jeb! Just go away, also take Marco and Hillary with her Freedom Medal with you. Perhaps the three of you can rent a room at the Aspen Institute.

Coming from the party who routinely gives a "reach-around" to the democrats, I think he should STFU. How's that for restraint?

"Tactically it was a mistake to focus on something that couldn’t be achieved"

That's just Jeb working alongside other RINOs to repeat something often enough that folks will believe it. We could have achieved defunding. With the Hastert Rule honored, we had the votes. It most certainly could have been done -- and I thoroughly enjoyed the looks of frustration and fear in the eyes of the socialists in Washington as that fact dawned on them. But, in the end, the surrender monkeys wanted their goodies right along side the democrats and caved. But the conservatives did gain a list of targets for the 2014 election. That's worth something. Oust McConnell and Graham.

George P. Bush, RINO in the making!

In contrast, George P. Bush lauded Cruz's campaign to defund Obamacare. "It's a monstrosity of a law," he said. "In terms of defunding it, that would be one way to reduce and mitigate the impact it's going to have on practicing physicians and hospitals here in Texas," The Dallas News quoted him as saying.

(Need Those T.E.A. Party Votes!

But with Election Day fast approaching, Bush said it’s probably too late for Republicans to pivot away from the party’s conservative base and seize the political high ground on the immigration issue.

“I am a pessimist as to the timing right now,” said Bush, a co-founder of the Hispanic Republicans of Texas and a fluent Spanish speaker

Sort of nails it- that’s EXACTLY what’s wrong with the GOPe- entirely too much restraint in upholding American values, traditions and principles. They have totally lost their way, and are sadly clueless. The GOPe needs to fade away into the graveyard of history.

During the Bush years we had the White House, the House of Representatives, and the Senate and we had, not Obamacare, but prescription drug entitlements, Runaway spending, the federalization of education, soaring deficits, and a mountain of debt.

In other words, whatever we got, it wasn't "self restraint."

I hoping that five years from now, Ted Cruz will no longer be a United States Senator.

Five years from now, I’m hoping Ted Cruz will be the President of the United States of America.

I hope you and your fellow Texans don’t mind sharing this fine man with the rest of the country.

The evening after these comments were made by Mr. Bush, Ted Cruz received an 8 minute standing ovation in San Antonio which to my amazement was reported on our evening news. San Antonio is home to the Alamo. Which, incidentally, was the location of a battle that really was “tactically impossible”.

"He observed that the GOP actually lost ground with the public over the course of the shutdown and ironically made significantly reforming the ACA that much harder."

Well, what did you do during this time, Jeb? Anything? (besides work in secret to push amnesty and bash members of your own party, that is). Did you go on the Sunday shows and hammer away at Obamacare? Did you scold members of your party (McCain, Peter King) who spent all their time trashing Conservatives, instead of publicly focusing on Obamacare? You're a pompous fraud.

Enough of these lazy Establishment Republicans...

Cruz could really nail Jeb Bush by responding that, “Stop campaigning for president, because conservatives will not support you, no matter what Karl Rove says.”

And if Jeb fires back at him, he could say, “Why are your establishment backers so hateful to conservatives that they would back a socialist Democrat instead of a conservative Republican?”

It's like in the old days when you were developing a photograph. You'd be in the darkroom developing the picture and you'd put the photographic paper in the chemical wash, allowing the image to slowly appear.

The RINOs are appearing.

The leftist progressives fight for what they want while mushy spines like Jeb Bush give in. Sixty+ years of it. American culture has been eroded into something unrecognizable. I don’t think Jeb Bush will ever decide something is worth fighting for. Very sad.

Ditto your POST.

Cruz------------- statesmanlike. Conservative Republican - Elephants.

Dem------------- criminals - Donkey Jackasses.

RINO------------ pretty much what's left over after the pigs have been slopped - can't think what party logo or animal would be, but it would not be nice. Would probably include a middle finger.

Who exactly is Jeb Bush?
Now I should add that I voted for him twice - and I still think he did a great job here, but all of that is past.
History.

Now why is anyone paying attention to his opinions on what conservatives need to do?
Unless I’ve missed something, he is not in the Senate nor the House.
Unless he is going to run for some position in Texas - and I wish him luck if he can unseat a sitting dem - then he needs to pipe down and not alienate any more voters if he actually does have any future politicals aspirations.

Jeb showed self-restraint, when he sat idly by and watched Terri Schiavo being murdered.

True, he ASKED the murderers not to do it. Then he ASKED Congress to ASK some judges to ASK the murderers not to do it.

But when the time came for him to fulfill his duty as governor, and ACT to save Terri’s life, he showed self-restraint.

I will never forgive him—because he has never asked to be forgiven.

“Tactically it was a mistake to focus on something that couldn’t be achieved,” Bush said.

Unwillingness to take a stand on basic principles is the primary reason the GOPe is in decline.

The PEOPLE are demanding a stand. The pubbies can’t deliver.

The PEOPLE MUST stand and fight, again
