“I could be the Walrus, I’d 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.

I think we've uncovered the real DannyH, true conservative, who scored high on every *conservative* test he's taken....it's Jeb.

Will we never learn?

You have to realize that at least half the nation is a dumb as a brick. It's not too far then to assume that some who aren't view people as Jeb, Christie, and the rest of the RINO's as "conservative", because the majority seek the middle ground.

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.

Bill Gates, Jeb Bush, Oprah and Warren Buffett meeting at SC island
Posted: May 10, 2013 10:39 AM CST

CHARLESTON, SC -

Bill Gates, Chairman of Microsoft and one of the richest people in the world, is spending time in the Lowcountry.

WCBD confirmed the American business magnate is at the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island.

Suspicion was raised when nearly 20 very expensive jets were seen lined up at the Charleston International Airport on Johns Island.

Officials with the Beach Company confirmed to WCBD that other big names such as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, TV host Oprah Winfrey and Billionaire Warren Buffet flew into the Charleston Executive airport on Johns Island Wednesday night.

Other prominent people said to also be staying there this weekend are Jeb Bush and Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The famous guests were attending a two day long conference led by Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Officials say the meeting was about the foundation Gates and his wife Linda run.

The meeting rented out the entire Sanctuary Hotel on the gated island. Security has been high throughout the entire week, keeping the public away from the hotel.

WCBD spoke to the Mayor of Kiawah by phone who said the town is happy to serve as host to the event.

“We wish them luck with what they’re doing,” Mayor Charles Lipuma said. “If they want to play golf, they couldn’t have picked a better weekend. We are glad we could offer them great weather.”

OK Jeb, give us your reasons as to why you call yourself a conservative.

You can start with the words: “I am a conservative because...”

Why do they want to SAY they are conservative and then scramble so far to the left

Don’t they think the same reason it is attractive to SAY they are conservative will be attractive when running for election, and governing???????

Yo Jeb, you're 60 years old and a former governor of Florida. If your actions reflected and upheld conservative principals you wouldn't have to announce that you're conservative.

Right now your game is

Voodoo Politics

To put it words you understand,

No soy zombie.

Soy ciudadano Americano
No mas Arbustos!

...and Jeb, day by day you're looking more and more like Karl Rove, another turdblossom.

Guess we need a new word: Bush Conservative—maybe? Hurts Jebbies feelings when we call him a moderate. I just call him, his brother , and their Pappy half-assed. 41 broke faith with Reagan. Jebbie just talks double sided krap. 43’s failing to clean out the Clinton mess will forever classify him as half-assed for me. And that is the source of many of our current problems. We’ve had enough Bush.

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

The whole Bush clan is made up of open borders enthusiasts. They're La Raza and Azatlan's favorite Republicans.

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.

Another case is point is "deficits don't matter" Dick Cheney praising the Tea Party and pretending to be a fiscal conservative when shilling for his daughter's run for Senate.

“because the majority seek the middle ground.”

It’s that erroneous “left-—center-—right” model that everyone uses—which Sapir and Whorf would say shapes and limits our ability to think about these issues.

I hold a strong opinion that the spectrum actually runs from God on the right to Satan on the left. There is no cowardly center; only a decision to struggle to the right, or a decision to let spiritual entropy drag you to the left.

It is not humanly possible, of course, to get far enough to the right.
