Jeb Bush: 'I'm a conservative' (Running for president?)
CNN ^ | November 19, 2013 | Ashley Killough

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.

The Spanish-speaking former governor also took a slight dig at another potential 2016 contender, Sen. Ted Cruz, for his Spanish language skills.

'I'm a conservative'

At one point in the discussion, moderated by Fordham law professor Thane Rosenbaum, Bush was asked whether the tea party could coexist with moderates like himself and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Feigning shock that he was called a moderate, Bush argued that his style may be different but he's still a conservative at heart....

Jeb, buddy — don’t believe everything your father and brother tell you. Their judgment has been proven faulty.

Someone close to Jeb should clue him in. No one with the surname Bush will be elected president for the foreseeable future. No one.

This would save Jeb a lot of time and money.

I’m a conservative. I measure everything against that. Jeb Bush is not a conservative.

'I'm a conservative'

He made it a point to go after Brewer in Arizona for trying to enforce immigration law.

I think he's another one who doesn't like the "tea party" (which is the GOP rank and file) except when he's running for office.

That depends upon how you perceive the scale, thus he needs
to explain what scale he is using.

That’s my thinking as well. Lots of RINOs to tear each other apart and a couple of good conservatives for us to put our weight behind.

I’d like to see conservative candidates run a different kind of race. They should agree to compete honestly but one should step aside at a certain agreed upon point and throw their weight behind the other conservative. Maybe even an open agreement to pick the other for VP or a cabinet post.

Jeb Bush pushes Common Core and Amnesty. He wants the “el heffe” society. He is anything but conservative.

Absolutely.

If Cruz runs, I hope we can get behind him early; if he doesn't, I hope someone else can pick up the mantle, rally the base (us) while the pack of RINO's keep running, hoping the media will win each one of them the nomination.

All these GoPe crats are party crats.

They do zero serious journalism of sweat and blood when it comes to issues of investigating abortion or illegal immigration.

They are just granted by the communist media a chocolate medal of being hawk conservatives while being neither.

This is affirmative action in the GoPe.

Seems odd to pick Noo Yawk as the place to tout his (supposed) conservative credentials.

On the other hand unless someone the caliber of Cruz runs, I guess any RINO will do.

I'm hoping for a SNL skit of Jeb yelling at Christie for eating too much of the hurricane pork while Christie is yelling at Jeb because he's the younger stupid brother of a failed political dynasty.........

Ah yes, a man can dream.
