“Remember he called them ‘heartless?’” Rove said of Perry, who later called his attack an error.

“So Gov. Bush has got to be careful as this issue — if he becomes a candidate and the issue comes back at him, not to respond by questioning the motivations of the people who oppose him.”

is it an ‘an act of love’ under the law , if I choose to grow a huge marijuana crop on public lands , in order to just provide sustenance for my impoverished family ?

That’s what a lot of them come here to do .
Where does the love end and the law begin ?

is it an act of love to invade a neighboring country ?
Jeb has spent way too much time speaking Spanish and listening to his father’s ‘ kinder-gentler’ sentiments

And it will be an act of love if a lot of us vote against him, love of country, that is.

No way to Jeb. He was an excellent Governor overall and if he wasn’t named Bush, he would probably have been a good candidate 6 years ago or maybe in 2012. This is a different time and we need new, inspiring leadership. We had a generation of big-government Republicans that have literally pulled down the party to an un-winnable position. We need the new younger generation of Jindals, Pences, Walkers, Cruzs and Rand Pauls to reform a winning coalition.

This is a kerfuffle over an inartful way of saying something.

The spin for what the Bush's say and do, are enough to speed up the rotation of the earth...Eventually we'll all fly off.

They are not only in artful but revelatory of his muddled thought processes.

Jeb’s statement is such a clear indicator that he is so fully sold out to amnesty that supporting him is supporting amnesty.

1. A nation should control access to its own country.

2. Those who enter illegally should not be rewarded.

3. Those who enter illegally negatively affect a carefully balanced system.

The needs of the nation versus the desires of the illegals.

Jeb thinks the desires of an illegal trump the needs of the nation.

If anything is inartful, it's Rove’s attempt to throw cover over Jeb’s idiotic statement. This has now become ‘lovegate’ ..... Like looking into a mirror that's a reflection of a mirror, that's a reflection of a mirror....

If you want to call screwing the American workers an act of love, then Jeb Bush is correct.

I wonder if that statement would knock him out of the race.

I heard a position statement coming from his lips. He was saying (and it was honest of him), “Here I stand.”

All I need to know. Glad he was open with his opinion.

That’s exactly what it was.

Like another poster stated, if this is an act of love, then so is gang rape...

Republican legislatures and congress turned on the Bushes and haven’t supported their big government agenda.

Jeb wanted driving privileges and George wanted amnesty.

They come here because they live money. Love of money is the root of all evil. Therefore, illegals are evil.

Next question...

I think that Jeb must have meant by “the act of love” is that we were getting f@cked by immigrants

calling these invaders “immigrants” is like calling a burglar a “houseguest”.

MEMO TO JEB BUSH:  Instead of getting that degree in Latin American affairs, you might have been wise to get a degree in AMERICAN HISTORY!  Since you're obviously so fond of Latin America, perhaps there's an elective office waiting for you somewhere in Latin America? Oh wait, THEY have very rigid CITIZENSHIP and RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS down there.

never mind

WASHINGTON ON IMMIGRATION "The policy or advantage of immigration taking place in a body (I mean the settling of them in a body) may be much questioned; for, by so doing, they retain the language, habits, and principles (good or bad) which they bring with them.  Whereas by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures, laws; in a word, soon become one people." George Washington in a letter to John Adams

JEFFERSON ON IMMIGRATION "Every species of government has its specific principles. Ours perhaps are more peculiar than those of any other in the universe. It is a composition of the freest principles of the English constitution, with others derived from natural right and natural reason. To these nothing can be more opposed than the maxims of absolute monarchies. Yet, from such, we are to expect the greatest number of emigrants. They will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or, if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty. These principles, with their language, they will transmit to their children. In proportion to their numbers, they will share with us the legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its direction, and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass." That xenophobic radical, Thomas Jefferson

Mr. Jefferson's concerns go right to the heart of the questions of uncontrolled immigration and, in Obozo's case,  natural born citizenship, don't they?

Rove is an expert in the “art” of deception.
