Bush draws boos from conservatives
The Hill ^ | April 12, 2014 | Alexandra Jaffe

Posted on 04/12/2014 10:25:02 PM PDT by kingattax

A mention of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), a potential 2016 presidential contender, brought boos from a conservative crowd in New Hampshire on Saturday.

Speaking at the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, a gathering of conservative activists and figures organized by Americans for Prosperity and Citizens United, billionaire Donald Trump said Bush’s recent comments on immigrants coming to the U.S. as an “act of love” were “out there.”

“You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” he said, with quiet boos and angry murmurs erupting from the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name.

Another Bush? Why? The Kennedy kid couldn’t fly and his elders were corrupt. Bush 43 was a socialist.

We need what America always needs, a conservative.

The rabid hateful bushbots destroyed the credibility of the conservative opposition to big government.

The tools worshipped him instead of opposing his drunken-sailor spending.

It's possible to be a socialist without actually being a socialist.

I agree that George Junior was probably not a socialist.

He may have been a tongue-tied moron, amnesty-treason hustler, and Saudi-king kisser...but out-and-out socialist - probably not.

Why was that statement false? Bush was a socialist. He believe in big government. If Bush’s statement about needing socialism to save capitalism when he pushed for the bailouts wasn’t enough to convince you that he’s a socialist, then nothing will

An individual that believes in the ability and/or the authority of government to manipulate, control, direct, channel, influence or otherwise engineer the population, is the definition of a Socialist. How does that not describe President Bush. He let us all down in a big way.

No. His family is cozy with the One World Government crowd, but not Socialist. Bush falls into the same trap all big money, high power people do. They don't use their heads as much as they should.

What naivete you express. H..W. was born and bred in the Rockefeller wing of the Grand Ole Plantation. This was the same wing that worked harder against Reagan’s policies then the rats. Then, as soon as his 8 years were up, H.W. ran back to the Statist, Corporatist, Ruling class policies faster than you can say Jackie Robinson. These are the same people who put an end to the brief respite of Newt’s success and, now, go by what we commonly call Republicans (GOP-E).

They are so use to shoving who they want down our throats and getting away with it. Look what they did to Herman Cain when they saw how popular he was becoming. I hope it’s not going to work this time.

Neither Bush president were socialist but they sure as hell weren’t conservatives.
And as for that, “compassionate conservativism” that was a load of crap.

Jeb Bush is a fine person, but he is NOT a conservative. He is a “moderate”, drifting left with the times.

Back around 1990, in California, Richard Riordan (sp.) was an effective and very popular mayor in Los Angeles (and he was a white guy, if you could believe it). He made a ton of money in business and knew how to manage people.

So he decides to run for governor as a Republican and is an instant favorite. But in the PRIMARY season he makes a statement to the effect that one nominated, he liberate the Republican Party from its “extremist” elements and make it more “inclusive”, and he was clear what that meant (neutral on abortion, all for gay rights, etc.). Again, that was during the Primary season.

That was the end of his chances of being nominated - he sank immediately. The party didn’t do well, but there really isn’t much they can do there, now that the Illegals from 1986 can vote, thanks to Amnesty back then.

So be HAPPY about Jeb, we can club him to death over this (note to NSA, just an expression), much as we did, rightfully, with Perry. If some Republicans want Amnesty, there is another party that is MORE THAN HAPPY to support them. So, hopefully, Jeb goes away now.

I think the poster meant that GWB ADVANCED socialism though he probably never thought of himself as an acutal socialist. So many TX Republicans still revere him.

Here is how it will go in 2016...Democrats will cross over and vote in Red Hampshire's 'open primary' to vote for worst GOP candidate on the ballot...just like they do every four years. Demand the primary be closed, or suck it up when we get another McCain or Romney.

Red Hampshire needs to go last instead of first...a refreshing change.

W stuck us with the misnamed Patriot Act, the TSA, the Department of Reichland Security, Medicare part D, massive debt, not one but two Vietnam type wars we lost, ruined the military equipment built up by Reagan, tried so shove Amnesty down our throats, signed a ban on light bulbs, perpetuated the ethanol scam, completely ruined the Republican brand and thereby gave us Obama.

Bush did major damage to the conservative movement. If you don't like socialist, how about evil bastard, or fascist?

I seen to recall that he pulled out a victory in Iraq after he dismissed "Rummy". Then Afghanistan was lost after GWB went back to TX. But he did say at the start that neither Iraq nor Afghanistan would be "another Vietnam." So many in TX still like him despite such "shortcomings".

I’ve often thought that both Bushes would have rallied to Terri’s defense if her family had been gop-e and big donors. I guess then the Bushes would be “respecter of persons” But they are still liked in TX, which gave George P. some 74 percent in the 2014 primary for land commissioner.

If a GOPe person is the nominee in 2016, I will still go to the poll, but I will leave the box for the Nominee’s Electors BLANK. I will no longer support the GOPe.

However, I will vote for others on the ballot.

Note that I am retaining my voter registration as Republican, so that I can vote against any GOPe stooges in the Primary.
