Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush predicted Monday night Congress would pass a series of immigration bills next year and touted his conservative credentials as he talked about his thought process on a potential 2016 presidential bid.
In a wide-ranging, onstage interview at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Bush said he didn't necessarily agree with his mother, who joked there have been "enough Bushes" in the White House.

“Nnnnnnaw” - Uncle Si
Ah yes, a man can dream.

“I could be the Walrus, Id still have to bum rides off of people.”
Gratuitous Ferris Bueller quote of the day!
All Jeb Bush is worried about is illegal immigration.Where is concern for Americans losing healthcare insurance,the Obamacare train wreck, high unemployment..All the Obama scandals.? All we hear about is how we are suppose to ensure the illegals all have better lives than Americans.
Bush vs Clinton again?
I think we've uncovered the real DannyH, true conservative, who scored high on every *conservative* test he's taken....it's Jeb.
Did daddy & mommy tell ya that you are the greatest & you too can be prez, huh Jeb?
He’s a moderate.
He is a joke and another corrupt lying politician.
Sometime the louder you have to say something, the less truth there is in what you are saying. I think he is trying to convince himself.
