Skip to comments.An animated Jeb Bush impresses New York audience
Posted on 05/14/2014 7:22:25 PM PDT by jimbo123
Jeb Bush gave an impassioned speech before New York's top political donors, casting immigration reform as a way to grow the economy, warning of a declining American Dream and pressing back on Common Core critics.
"We cannot go back and dumb down our standards," Bush said at a Manhattan Institute dinner at Cipriani, across from Grand Central Station.

Jeb Bush Impresses Liberal Elite
There, I fixed it.
I sure won't vote for him.
“An animated Jeb Bush”
Yeah, I’d like him better as a cartoon.

LOL, I thought it was an actual cartoon.....oh wait.....
Jeb Bush. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Wrong three times in the first sentence.
NOPE!..But Jeb gets that the only way to dumb us down in one easy swoop is with amnesty!...
Ill give him credit for that..but NEVER my vote!
I guess Jeb doesn’t know the teachers all across NY State, not the least of which is Long Island, and up in arms about CC. For the NYS teachers to do a 180 is significant.
But then again Jeb himself is dumber than a box of rocks.
Yeah, he is a natural for NY.
Great speech. Reminds me exactly why I’m NOT voting for him.
NO COMMON CORE EVVV - ERRR!!!
Jeb - isn’t he the dumbed-down Bush?
Oh yeah, another Bush monkeying around with education standards is just what we need. Let's see.
During his administration, GHWB worked with the young governor from Arkansas and developed education standards designed to accomplish lofty goals by the year 2000, goals to put US near the top in international rankings of educational achievement. That was called "Goals 2000", developed under GHWB and signed into law by Slick Willie.
And then W came along and got with Ted Kennedy and gave us another set of national educational standards, or goals, called "No Child Left Behind."
So why the heck do we have to now listen to a third Bush yammering about another national educational standards scheme called "Common Core"?
Will it ever be concluded that these know-it-alls don't know much of anything about education? The third grand scheme in about 25 years, and educational standards continue to deteriorate.
My standard is no more dumb bushs.
They had a cartoon character of Jeb Bush speak to them? Toon town. Clintoon here we come. The opponent of choice by the media. While hitlery says not everyone should have guns just cause they want them-—for protection or whatever, citing minor incidents as major example of why they shouldn’t have them. Leftist fascist, hitlery. The Beast of Bergen Belsen, let’s rename her Ilsa.
Jeb should do like Hillary did. Move to NY and run for senator as a democrat.
New Yorkers seem to like him.
Yep, the Bushes are actually of Connecticut, anyway, and all went to school "back east".
Cool. Maybe he can run against Hillary in the Democrat primary!
Aw, they’ve had animated characters at Disneyland for decades, and they repeat the same tired lines too!
“The Beast of Bergen Belsen, lets rename her Ilsa.”
Can’t be done - she’s already known as the HillaBeast.
Jeb is the democrats new “favorite republican” since Christy stubbed his toe.
more Schumer for them.
In his case, it helps to start out stupid.
And dumbing down our standards is exactly what Common Core is about, Jeb.
Good thing your wife is so shy as to hate the idea of being a First Lady. At least there is something right you will do for love.
>> “And dumbing down our standards is exactly what Common Core is about, Jeb.” <<
And there is no room for dumbing down between where we are, and the bottomless pit.
I IMPRESSED NEW YORK!
>Will it ever be concluded that these know-it-alls don’t know much of anything about education?<
You think they attended Publik Skool?
You think any of their kids did?
By what means does Common Core combat dumbing down of education?
Wow. A liberal guaranteed to lose the presidential election impresses liberals who want him to lose.
Hello McCain and Romney.
Well of course Jeb impressed the folks in New York; they are all a bunch of Progressive/Liberal metrosexuals.
Because it's his turn to be Dear Leader.
The socialists want to limit our choice to either a liberal republican or a liberal democrat in the next presidential election. Jeb’s not liberal enough to pull votes from the liberal democrats and too liberal to pull votes from the republican conservatives.
Jeb can’t pull enough votes from either side to win.
What a complete one-world idiot. No more bushes.
Bush and Dumb
Two words that go together
Jeb is leading the charge of the Republican left, because they couldn’t find a Kennedy to do it. Because of leftists like Jeb, violent criminals are being released to prey on Americans.
Trying to impress people who will never vote for you is insane
his dumb down standards argument is a straw man argument
the argument is not a higher standard but that Common Core is not it
it’s not even a “higher” standard at all
I need the “like” button! That’s perfect.
The excerpt alone shows Jeb to be a liberal socialist.
He was in NY with others of his ilk, so of course they approved of his rhetoric. ....Jeb cannot survive as a candidate for the Pubs; just like Christi, Santorem, Huckabee, Rubio, Paul and others of the left-leaning potentials.
Jeb and the rest of them Bush’s are NOT conservatives and they all can go fish
New York voters. The same people who elected Bloomberg, DiBlasio, Schumer, Weiner, H.R. Clinton, etc? It figures that Jeb Bush would impress them.
Yes he is a natural for New York, he should move there and run for Governor, and stay the heck away from the South.
Jeb Bush's base, the 1%. No where to go but up for ol' Jeb.
Jeb ain't running. Or if he does run, the goal is to smear conservatives.
Stay out da' Bushes.
Imagine, there are 300 million people in this country and we can only elect the same ass clowns from the same families over and over.
