Could Jeb Bush's Views On Immigration Cost Him A Presidential Primary?
WLRN ^ | 6/17/14 | MATT LASLO

Posted on 06/18/2014 2:21:10 PM PDT by jimbo123

Some conservatives say the recent primary loss of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) shows a Republican like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush cannot win a presidential primary because of his views on immigration. Bush and another Florida politician hoping for the presidency are taking very different approaches to the issue.

As the dust settles on Cantor's stunning primary loss, some analysts say he was ousted because he was seen as a Washington insider. Others say Virginia’s open primary allowed Democrats and independents to sabotage his race.

But conservatives, like Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), say it shows their party's base is opposed to comprehensive immigration reform. Says Rep. King, “If you’re going to point to one single issue that this election pivoted on, it was on immigration and it was on amnesty.”

Has Jeb made any statement at all about the Children’s Crusade on our southern border? Haven’t heard anything, but I might have missed it. This issue is so important to him and all the Bushes, you’d think he’d want to make a statement about all these most recent “acts of love”.

Hey Jeb, how are those superior latino “family values” working out? They’re abandoning 10’s or even 100’s of thousands of their children. Yep, they’re so much better than we Americans. And oh, they work better and are more fertile too.

Jeb, your “noble savage” racism is insulting.

Jeb Bush supports the common core program.

Jeb Bush supports an illiterate population of workers, just right for his “el Heffe” economy.

Jeb Bush is antithetical to everything America stands for.

Jen’s idiotic statement that breaking our immigration laws is “an act of love” disqualified him. Tens of thousands of children are being given over to human smugglers to break our immigration laws. Perhaps he thinks that is an act of love,too.

Just have a look at the border of TX right now. Even Hillary Clinton says send them back home. She doesn’t intend to do that but she is smart enough to say that so she gets votes from Americans who know we cant feed the world.

I like 41 & 42. He was VERY popular governor in FL supported by BOTH dems & republicans. BUT... he suopports Common Core. THAT is bad! His time has past.

His son, George Preston Bush is brilliant & I would CERTAINLY vote for him! He comes with the morals & skill without baggage.

The plan was for Jeb Bush to be the GOP-e annointed Designated Loser against Hillary. But he can’t lose to Hillary if he doesn’t get the nomination.

Republicans have been told, "You'd better support amnesty, and you'd better support an open border, and you'd better support them 'coming out of shadows,' or you're never gonna win." Obama's leading that charge, and he's dropped 23 points among Hispanics in a year and a half, from 67% approval in January 2013 to 44% today.

I'll get the link from the poll... If Jeb thinks 'the people' want a few million more illegals, he's nuts. And yeah, it'll cost him the nomination. Even Hispanics don't want a few million more illegals to compete with...

Jeb talks the liberal elite talk. Maybe Jeb, Michael Moore, and John Kerry can meet at the club - compare their mansions and talk about the kindness of 'the help'...
