So Jeb Bush thinks its an act of love for illegal aliens to sneak into the country.
Guess what, Jeb its going to be an act of love for millions of Republicans and independents to vote against you in the Republican presidential primaries in 2016.
A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave, Jeb said Sunday.
You couldnt pry these illegals out of here with the Jaws of Life. At least not as long as theyre collecting TANF, SNAP, Sect. 8, MassHealth the full Tsarnaev, in other words.
The way I look at this, he said, is someone who comes to our country because they couldnt come legally, they come to our country because their families the dad who loved their children was worried that their children didnt have food on the table. Its an act of love.
Jeb, what about all the Americans who worry that this invasion of tens of millions of illegal aliens is bankrupting the nation would it be an act of love for all those citizens, yes citizens, to vote against the politicians who are pandering to these invaders?
Is it an act of love to want to stop these hordes of illegals from going to state colleges for free because theyll be depriving your tax-paying American children of their earned (as opposed to unearned) place at the table?
Jeb, you talk about keeping families intact. How about the Denice family of Milford? That American family was shattered by one of your dreamers, or should we now call them lovers. This illegal from Ecuador happened to be driving unlicensed and drunk, with his anchor baby beside him in the front seat, when he ran over a young American college graduate named Matthew Denice.
This dreamer, er lover, now claims he cant speak English or Spanish, even though he was somehow able to order a couple of six packs of Bud Light. This happened in 2011, but the illegal still hasnt been tried. The judge says as an Indian, he apparently lacks an enzyme to metabolize alcohol, which I guess makes it OK to kill Americans while driving drunk.
It shouldnt rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.
Jeb, have you ever been to a hospital emergency room on a Saturday night? Or a district court on a Monday morning? Or a Walmart on the morning after the EBT cards are refilled?
Jeb, your brother used to say that they were only coming here to do the jobs that Americans wont do. Yet somehow, when the illegals have their demonstrations at the State House demanding ever more handouts, its always on a weekday, during business hours. Dont they have jobs, you know, like the Tea Party people do?
Run, Jeb, run. I and millions of other Americans cant wait to vote against you.
Wed Howie column list ping
*: Don't get me wrong, I loved W even though he was sometimes on the wrong track. But, enough already.
Rove was beside himself at how Jeb displayed his honest opinion. Jeb is supposed to be more cagey.
I appreciate the truth and I have no problem saying I cannot vote for Jeb Bush.
A message that needs to be distributed everywhere.
Bush? Kiss of death for 2016. Even Hillary has more prospects than he does.
Jeb should exhibit his love and go fix Mexico so we all would rather live their than here with the ever increasing fascist government of 0bama here.

Both of these criticisms are, at best, misplaced; at worst, they are just disingenuous.
At any rate, they are easily answerable.
Lets begin with the argument against purism. To this line, two replies are in the coming.
As for the second objection against the Tea Partiers rejection of those Republican candidates who eschew his values and convictions,
it can be dispensed with just as effortlessly as the first.
Every election seasonand at no time more so than this past seasonRepublicans pledge to reform Washington, trim down the federal government, and so forth.
Once, however, they get elected and they conduct themselves with none of the confidence and enthusiasm with which they expressed themselves on the campaign trail,
those who placed them in office are treated to one lecture after the other on the need for compromise and patience.
Well, when the Tea Partiers impatience with establishment Republican candidates intimates a Democratic victory,
he can use this same line of reasoning against his Republican critics.
My dislike for the Democratic Party is second to none, he can insist.
But in order to advance in the long run my conservative or Constitutionalist values, it may be necessary to compromise some in the short term.
Smart idea. I agree w/Rush. Bush is trying to sabotage himself.
Rove’s continued influence mystifies me and his drip-drip-drip approach to policy and platform is a recipe for disaster.
What is Rove’s pedigree? Got the son of a president elected to Texas governorship with huge advantages in name recognition and cash? 2000 election in which we sweated out a dead heat (the usual Dem cheating notwithstanding)? A 2004 election in which we and the incumbent sweated out a win over a thickheaded, traitorous Mass. lefty?
Rove is the Marty Schottenheimer of politics: he will win 51-49 or lose 49-51 but he will make sure he keeps his job. Dems love him more than the GOP base which should tell us something.
They CAN'T come here legally???
What's stopping them?
Don't we have an entire bloated bureaucracy dedicated to bringing people into this country legally?
What do people at the INS do all day? Sit at their computers and watch porn?
Or am I thinking of another bloated bureaucracy dedicated to solving another of the world's problems?
Rabid wombat ping.
I doubt they have the best interest of American citizens in mind when they’re stealing (yes, stealing) our jobs.
Are There Really Jobs Americans Wont Do?
A detailed look at immigrant and native employment across occupations
What Jeb-boy is not thinking about is that WE DON’T CARE.
Immigration to the US is not for the good of the Immigrants, but for the good of the US. And illegal aliens are NOT good for the US.
There is not love for the millions of American unemployed. There are 91 million Americasn out of the work force, thank to Obama we have the lowest participation in the work force since the 1970’s and some demagogues want to wide open our borders to hundreds of millions around the world who would love to enjoy the American dream... but that dream is becoming in an American nightmare for those born here and those who came legally to enjoy our way of live loving the U.S. as much as their country of birth.
Jeb’s problem is that he’s out of touch with what Americans think. He’s been living a cloistered life since he left office.
And yes, I would vote against him because he’s all the things I’m not looking for in our next President. We don’t need a Republican Obama for sure.
Wave him good-bye!
Some day we need to stand up say “This is our country, go get your own”. I’m wondering if that will ever happen.
What a RINOish slime ball. So its an act of love to have a complete disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, the security of our nation, the economy not to mention the discrimination of letting Mexicans in free of charge with benefits while making other nationalities follow the rules.
RINOs love to stick our faces in the problems of other nations such as Iraq or Afganistan with no end game planned. Neither of those two nations invaded us while the Mexicans as a people are invading us by the millions.
Why not do the same with Mexico, invade them, cure the border crossing issue and set up a non-corrupt government?
Oh! I forgot, our government is just as corrupt.

Howie’s got it just about right.
<><> A Miami paper reported that cargo flights carried millions of US greenbacks in suitcases, port cargo containers, and money bags, from Mexico to Texas, and then to Miami Intl Airport, on a routine schedule.
From there, authorities say, the money was laundered by two Mexican businessmen through a Miami-Dade check-cashing company that used the dollars to cash the payroll checks of undocumented workers at local supermarkets.
It was all part of a Mexican-Miami bulk-cash network that federal agents say may be funded by drug profits south of the US border.
The culprits--Martin Diaz and Enrique Guerra--arrested earlier this month, appeared before a federal magistrate on charges of conspiring to launder US dollars for the purpose of harboring illegal aliens in this country. (Excerpt) Read more at miamiherald.com ...
<><> THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC'S IRON GRIP ON AMERICA'S POLITICAL/ELECTORAL SYSTEM--its greedy tentacles surface in every facet of US power centers.
LYING-IN-WAIT Neutral Dominican Republic travel brochures recount how the cunning Dominican govt survives on billions of our tax dollars which its illegal residents located here send back home---all of them riding the US gravy train.
The do-nothing Caribbean Third World satrap is teeming with poverty. The do-nothing Dominican govt provides no social safety nets for needy citizenry. The connivers work the US system---quietly and secretly lying-in-wait---to maximize its iron grip on America's power centers.
From a Dominican Republic travel brochur the D/R is a Caribbean nation notorious for corrupt governments and strong-arm dictators. Despite US politicans' fondness for the "amenities" at its posh resorts and celebrities relaxing at posh villas spending big bucks there, the DR has no safety net or state-sponsored job creation for its largely impoverished citizenry.
<><> The one million Dominican citizens currently living illegally in the US send home about a billion US dollars annually---which is considered by the corrupt do-nothing DR govt to be a major source of state revenue. A steady exodus leaves for US shores (lured by the endless US gravy train).
<><> US newspapers report Dominican Republic illegals here get EBT cards then ship the food to the D/R where their relatives sell the food on the street.
<><> A US post office near the Mexican border was used by illegals to send gravy train money back home. It was so busy, the US govt had to add-on several trailers to handle the business.
<><> An illegal who was saved from drowning in a submerged car is suing (1) the first responders who risked their lives to rescue him....and (2) the municipal govt for "letting him" cross an unsafe bridge. He is bring repped by latino lawyer, Eduardo Ferszt.
I agree with your list completely. While it was mostly directed at illegal immigration from Mexico, I would like to add two very important non-Mexican items. The events of 9-11-2001 and the Boston Marathon bombings both could have been prevented by enforcement of existing immigration laws. I doubt if the families of the dead and injured would agree that this was an act of love. Misguided compassion regarding immigration is no more acceptable than buying liquor and giving the keys to your car to an alcoholic.
I'm insulted that the RINOs would try to even pretend Jeb could win the conservative vote as the "lesser of two evils".
Jeb is another narcissist governmentoid who think the love votes for him, government and his Bush gang.
Sick of psycho retards in power.
What else Jeb? Do us a porn flick with illegals?
jeb has the Lenin privilegist disease. He thinks he embodies all that is wonderful in the world because some communist twat made him think so.
I may sound like a broken record; but I remember Terri Schiavo and how Jeb handled the situation. There was no reason to have that woman die. Her parents were willing to take care of her.
Hey Jeb, American can’t take in the world.
If you Jeb, want to open up your private home to hundreds of illegals for a few years we’ll be happy to make those people legal. It’ll give you a chance to see how wise and compassionate you really are... You can impress us with your superior compassion.
Oh and you can’t ‘cherry pick’... you get the hard workers and the rapists and the killers. Just like you’re forcing on us by letting these dreamers ‘self select’.
Prove you great capacity to be kinder than all the rest of us... really these folks would be more than happy to sleep 20 to a room for the ‘opportunity’ to dream the dream.. and they can damn well do it in YOUR PRIVATE HOME. Show us how much better you are than us WITH YOUR ACTIONS not your mouth.
We’ll be watching Jeb. We suspect you want to dump this burden on us while you pat yourself on the back. Prove us wrong Jeb...
It takes a peculiar talent to spend billions on campaigns that a "Buy Here-Pay Here" Used Car Lot would be too embarrassed to run. Along the way, use an ad agency and production company that have strong ties to the DNC and that will be sure and tip off the enemy on your plans and "strategies," such as they are.
Who else can boldly predict that Latinos are "The Republicans of the Future?"
Who else can hold the entire Bush Family as mental captives who dare not take a restroom break without his permission?
Who else can starve a conservative's campaign of funds, work against that candidate, and later claim credit for the candidate's victory against stacked odds? (Hint: Ask Mr. Jolly)
But the genius part? After years of pease-poor performance, this guy still has clients!
Genuine laugh at that one.
Rove is like the sheepdog or the wolf in the Warner Bros. cartoons - punch the clock, pretend to do a job, go home at night with nothing accomplished.
Nobody in DC will ever vandalize his lawn - he’s too valuable as a termite eating away at the GOP framework every day.
Act of love? Jeb showed us what he knew about love when he failed to help Terry Schiavo! How dare he talk about love!
Jeff Bush loves undocumented immigrants, but, where is his love for the millions of Americans unemployed? There are 91 million Americans out of the work force. Thanks to Obama we have the lowest participation in the work force since the 1970s and some demagogues want to open wide our borders to hundreds of millions around the world who would love to enjoy the American dream... but that dream is becoming in an American nightmare for those born here and those who came legally to enjoy our way of life loving the U.S. as much as their country of birth.
What is even more aggravating is that people who entered the country illegally are demanding rights and privileges that American citizens do not enjoy and they did not dare to demand from the government of their own country.
California used to be the richest state of America. Now it is almost bankrupt. Anybody can see the result of uncontrolled illegal immigration, and companies are leaving to Texas, Florida and other red states with less taxes and better incentives to invest and prosper.
In fact, unemployment is now lower in Mexico than in U.S.; perhaps Americans will start moving south.
