Report: Jeb Bush on Board of Directors of Pro-Obamacare Company
Breitbart News ^ | April 21, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 04/21/2014 8:40:46 PM PDT by This Just In

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wanted to cash out after he left office, but those business entanglements may hurt him if he chooses to run for the GOP nomination in a party that is increasingly becoming opposed to crony capitalism.

According to a report in The New York Times, "Bush left public office seven years ago with a net worth of $1.3 million and an unapologetic determination to expand his wealth, telling friends that his finances had suffered during his time in government."

Like Mitt Romney. He profits from Obamacare.

What’s the difference between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton?

She doesn’t serve on an Obamacare company board of directors.

Jeb Bush on Board of Directors of Pro-Obamacare Company

Begs the question, does Jed Bush receive his healthcare though ObamaCare?

Or does he have top shelf government paid health coverage or high end private insurance with the best doctors?

I see a repeat of 2012 coming in 2016.

Jeb the moderate could win nomination with whole bunch of conservative candidates dividing votes.

If either Ricky or Newty dropped out after alol others except Mitt were in the race, Mitt could never have won the nomination. Mitt never crossed 30% until he became inevitable.

Jeb Bush: the murderer of Terri Schiavo.

Everything he does reveals that his murder of Terri Schiavo was not a momentary lapse by a good man, but the act of a man committed to promoting evil.

Indeed. Punked by a state district court judge, and he will stand up against rivals like Russia or China, false friends like the EU, or enemies like Soros or Islam?

He is a fungible cog in the globalist machine; uninspired, uninspiring and not worth his brother’s nail clippings.

Jeb the moderate could win...with a whole bunch of conservatives switching votes

I don't think it's that simple.

Remember when Huckabee was gaining traction and the ptb declared nutty McCain as the unstoppable frontrunner? There was a decision that it was better to lose with McCain than to win with a conservative (yes, I know Huckabee's imperfect, but he is conservative and articulate)

Remember when Quayle and SteveForbes had a lot of support and Bush 2 was sold as a true conservative, even though he'd never voted or opined about any DC issues? Oh, yeah Quayle used an alternative form of spelling potatoE; that knocked him out.

And then take the last conservative standing against Romney. That would be Santorum. He was doing quite well until he started yapping about the "need to compromise".....doesn't get it, does he?

My point is that we constitutional conservatives have our work cut out for us. This info about Jeb should disqualify him. We need an articulate constitutional conservative who has good instincts who can inspire the nation with a message of how to make the US great again. As near as I can figure out, Jeff Sessions is one of the few still standing. DeWine? Huckabee? If one of these politicians is a true constitutional conservative, having a since message will get that person the necessary support.

Cruz....too fast to beat the war drums. RandPaul....all over the place. Neither one had good instincts to speak out in the Bundy situation as it unfolded. The globalists? No. I'd rather see hillary in there and have an opposition than to have a 'pub President who's against us, marginalizing and ignoring conservative gains.

Agreed with most of your post except the above.

No! I do not want a Hillary presidency with a slew of SCOTUS justices ready for retirement. I do not want new pro-abortion justices who will last 30 or more years.

I do not want more tax increases. I want a smaller government. None of that will happen with Hillary.

Hey I have been saying for a while now that principle doesn’t matter. I think it’s obvious that people who stick to principle hate their country and support Obama.

Purists are evil Laz. They are responsible for trying to elect people we can trust and clearly that’s the wrong approach. The correct approach, as I have long argued is to get people elected so they can then side with democrats. Like Flake did. Like Rubio did. Like RandPaul did. these are people we need, not people we can trust to believe in something good and right. Because that just leads to problems.

Look, when it comes right down to it, we have to moderate ourselves. We need to accept illegals because frankly, they do the jobs no one wants to do. And to be blunt, hit the women you don’t want to hit. Sometimes with cars, sometimes with bats. But they provide a service Americans just won’t do.

Likewise, we must embrace the Gay. Because they just want to be left alone. They are just like us really. We have too many people as it is and they don’t breed.

So lets all get behind the RINOS and tell all those purist idiots to sit down, shut up and get back on the plantation.

Oh wait, I never said any of that. But I and others got screamed at by Yosemite Sam picture posting idiots and fellow travlers on each one of the blown out sarcastic points made above.

Because they really do thing ‘winning’ is everything. and are just fine with destroying whatever is left just to avoid admitting they were wrong. So full steam ahead.

Nope. I actually enjoy making idiots look like idiots for the most part. but you are right (as opposed to being wrong the other day ;) that it will get worse. A ton worse. Just wait till Jeb ascends to the GOP nominee. We will see excuse making by psuedocons that made the Romney fiasco look like tea and crumpets.

And I fully expect a doubling down on the stupid.

The only frustrating thing is that even a puppy knows to stop whizzing on the floor after he has his nose rubbed in it. The right wing base, a big chunk of it, does not appear to possess the sense of a freaking dog after the GOP had rubbed it all over them.

If you're concerned about the justices on the Supreme Court, then it's important to get a proven constitutional conservative nominated. Remember Justice Roberts, who sold the nation out at the altar of Obamacare is a "conservative"....appointed by a non-conservative Republican!

If we're goin' down as a nation anyway, I'd just as soon have hillary as support a backstabber. The Supreme Court won't matter if there's no nation.

Until the political right has a come to Jesus encounter with reality, yes. Yes we are.

Some time ago I gave up on the idea this can be fixed even marginally. It is really simple. To fix it, we have to stop repeating the mistakes that caused it. People do not wish to do that if there is a chance they may not ‘win’. So they don’t really want to fix anything. Not most of them. They want what they have just as it is, because otherwise they would change it.

Ergo, Yes, we are screwed.

No question about that. More conservative the president, the better!

I am only comparing whom Hillary will nominate versus any republican president will appoint. I will bet anybody my bottom dollar that every one of Hillary’s nomination to SCOTUS will be a litmus test proven pro-abortion person.

With a republican president at least there is a chance it will not be so.

I’m just not buying the fear the Supreme Court judge argument anymore. We’ve already lost with the judiciary. Mygosh, look what judges are doing state-by-state, legalizing gay marriage when the states vote against it. With abortion, I do hope the justices stand for life, but if not, it’s people’s hearts and souls that must change.

You will not win. Consider that conservatives were not happy with the nominations of either McCain and Romney, and many wouldn't vote for them. With all that's happened since then, constitutional conservatives are even less likely to call a backstabber "the lesser of two evils". If you want to win with a Republican, it's time we all got together and chose a US-first constitutional conservative with a proven voting record and a demonstration of good instincts in fast moving events. Acknowledge that the likes of Jeb, Christie and Ryan are unacceptable.

Otherwise, you might as well leave "President" blank on election day. A backstabber will not win.

Then think of this...you will not see “DINO” stated on any liberal web sites. That tells me democrats do not eat their own. But republicans are like a little kid who throws a tantrum, picks up his toys and runs home.

Don’t you think it’s about time that the ptb give up on their globalist/elitist candidates? A decent candidate with a constitutional conservative vision would very likely have won, where McCain and Romney failed. And the last globalist success story, Bush 2, got the ball rolling on most of the programs that are out of control with Obama.

Where did you get the idea I like big spenders like Bush-43?
You are correct, he started the ball rolling and Obama just gave it a mighty push on spending.

But Bush managed to get elected twice and appointed many many good judges all over the country.

My main point is if it comes to choosing between Hillary and Jeb, I will hold my nose and vote for the moderate. Again, Hillary is totally unacceptable to me, no holds barred.

Finally, I would jump with joy if Ted Cruz wins the White House. I think we are unanimous on that. Our only contention is choosing between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton. No way in hell will I help Hillary by staying home.
