Connecticut Republicans applaud Jeb & McMahon gets award
WRAL ^ | SUSAN HAIGH

Posted on 04/12/2014 3:45:16 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Republicans, to be seen as a young and dynamic political party, must present a positive agenda that restores opportunity for social mobility and reforms the nation's immigration policies, former Florida governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Thursday.

Bush, appearing at a major fundraiser named after his late grandfather U.S. Sen. Prescott Bush, received loud applause from the crowd of nearly 800 Connecticut Republicans for his immigration reform stance.

Jeb is most appealing when he is blue states with donors. Especially in the metro area.

Connecticut residents who attend the Prescott Bush dinner are known as democrats just about anywhere else. It’s because of the native RINO that I had no choice but to join the Libertarian party. You might not like the Libertarians but look at our republicans.

“Opportunity for social mobility”

I’m sure social mobility is very important to the Bushes of Connecticut. It’s not like any of them are or were particularly talented, but they know and they are the right people.

I wonder if GP Bush is laying low.

His Democratic opponent referred to him as “Our Next Ruler from the Bush Dynasty”.

No difference. You are correct. My statement was tongue in cheek.

I do believe that guys like Jeb, or let's say Mitt, believe they are conservative compared to the Dhimmicrats.

In a different era (let's say Kennedy vs Nixon ). There was not enough difference between the two. Kennedy's father, diamond Joe, was going to fund Nixon if his son didn't win the primaries.

Problem today is traditional Dhimmicrats are not running the country, but rabid Marxists are. We need a considerable pendulum swing just to neutralize things. The GOPe does not get that. They still think in the old terms. They are useful idiots to the current Marxist power base.

I won’t stay home but will either write in someone or check out third parties if Bush is the nominee.

Konnecticut is a lousy state to be a Republican.

The grass roots conservatives were throwing up after seeing the video.

McMahon destroyed the CT Republican Party for 4 years. She ran with Obama in 2012. And she got a standing ovation twice.

There is only one hope for CT this year. It's Joe Visconti for governor. If you like what you see, please send Joe a small donation.

Connecticut’s Libertarians are freedom loving socialists. I was amember of them and they were LINOs.

Jeb Bush is making a very clear bid to sew up the voter loyalty of the 11 to 30 Million Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico who have been bleeding the USA dry since the disastrous Reagan Amnesty of 1986.

The only Border Reform that needs to be changed is to force our Federal Politicians to insist that EXISTING Federal Border Laws be strictly enforced, PERIOD

To compensate for Jeb’s bid for the Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico, Mrs. Bill Clinton will soon have to start making political speeches in Spanish.

As “both” political parties plunge into the race to the US financial bottom, my guess is that they will reach it - - - alone.

Wars have begun over a lot less of an illegal invasion of territory.

It is time, - - - for a change.

Bob Beckel, on Fox News just now, said, about Jeb Bush: "He's the one we fear the most, frankly".

An obvious case of "Please don't throw me in the Briar Patch!" and a prime example of the left and Fox News trying to pick our candidate for us.

I think Beckel is just voicing his true opinion, which is based on his worldview.

Which happens to be wrong. The Dems are convinced that there’s so much unbridled hatred for Obama and presumptive nominee Hillary that the Conservative base WILL turn out in overwhelming numbers to vote for the GOP nominee, even if it’s another Bush.

That means that, from their perspective, the GOP candidate just needs to raid enough of the Dem coalition to eek out a victory. And they think Bush is a dagger pointed straight at their ownership of the Hispanic vote.

Again, not the correct view (Conservatives WILL stay home if Bush is the nominee), but not an Uncle Remus ploy either.

It's inevitable that Bush-bots and Romney-bots will chime in and say it will be your fault when Hillary, or some other Democrat, gets elected.

Allow me to do you a favor...let them blame ME, because I'll be doing the same thing. No more GOPe votes from me. They're just as liable for the $17 Trillion deficit as the Democrats.

I won’t vote for another RINO for president but I will go to the polls that day and vote for straight Republican the rest of the ticket. As they say don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. I might just write in Sarah Palin for president. That would be the first time in years I was happy with my vote.

No doubt, I’ll still vote, but I see many more write-in votes than I have in the past.
