Posted on 05/14/2014 6:14:59 PM PDT by Mount Athos
Bush addressed a Manhattan Institute crowd along with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who has also embraced amnesty legislation, and doubled down on his support for an immigration reform bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers while not securing the border.
"For the life of me I have a hard time understanding why people are fearful of our own heritage, our own history," Bush reportedly said. "The rules are you come to this country, you pursue your dreams, you create value for yourself and your families and others and great things happens to you and to our country. Why would we ignore that at time when we need to restart and rejuvenate our economy? It makes no sense to me."
Bush has said illegal immigration is an "act of love" and also is a huge proponent of Common Core. He has been relentless in promoting amnesty and pushing for Common Core as he ponders a 2016 presidential run.
A recent Washington Post poll found that a majority of Americans would not vote for Jeb Bush in a general election, and some attendees reportedly complained of Bush fatigue in an appearance in which Bush was well received by more moderate Northeastern Republicans.

What an a**hat this guy is.
Jeb Bush makes no sense to me. The Bushes and Clintons just need to go away.
The rules are? WTF?
It seems to me that if you can say anything at all about the illegals is that they started by BREAKING the rules. That’s the beginning and end of it as far as I am concerned.
Maybe you're dain bramaged, Jebbie.
What are those?
Corporatist morons imposing their brand of “morality” on everyone else.
Of course it makes no sense to Jeb as he declared while looking out the window of his estate free from the common riff raff.
THIS member of the devastated middle class sees things a hell of a lot differently.

Jeb running for president makes no sense to me.
Voting for Jeb Bush makes no sense to me.
Opposing YOU and amnesty makes perfect sense to me Jeb.
Jeb isn’t even a RINO anymore, he is full Rat.
Which is why Bush I wouldn’t vote for you...... ever. If the GOP foists this charade of a Republican on us they do not deserve our support.
I’m usually not sure what a given politician means by ‘amnesty’.
The dictionary says it means forgiveness of an offense, especially a political offense.
I suspect any politician that says ‘amnesty’ is out to get votes from certain groups, and that whether they say it or not, they’re thinking ‘citizenship’.
So forget Bush.
Jeb Bush even came out and said that Republicans should stop opposing Obamacare.
Tell me again why we allow moderate states like Iowa and NH get to be the prime candidate selecting states?
