Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush—one of the top potential GOP contenders for a 2016 presidential run—has been tapped to become chairman of the Board of Trustees at the prestigious National Constitution Center, succeeding former President Bill Clinton.

Bush is the second in his family to serve as the chairman of center’s Board of Trustees—his father former President George H.W. Bush had the post in 2007.

“I am honored to have this opportunity and am humbled to follow in the footsteps of my beloved father … who first exemplified to me what it means to be a good citizen and to uphold the ideals expressed within the U.S. Constitution,” said Bush, 59, who governed the Sunshine State from 1999-2007. …

You are not allowed to know the answer to that question—national security. :-(

Bill Clinton may have forced her husband out of office - but Barbara Bush still considers him family.
The former First Lady lavished praise on the man who defeated George H.W. Bush in 1992, lovingly saying that Clinton is “a good fellow” who is “very thoughtful about calling.”

“He never said a mean word about anyone,” she said in an interview with Parade Magazine set to appear this weekend.

She even revealed that her sons - including, of course, George W. Bush, who followed Clinton into the Oval Office - call him “My brother by another mother.”

“He’s very nice,” Barbara Bush continued. “I think she thinks of George [Sr.] as the father he never had.”


THEY ARE RUBBING OUR FACES IN IT.

The biggest mistake President Reagan ever made was allowing the Republican party to pick Goerge Bush as his running mate.

If they thing that the conservative voters have no where else to go, they can think again.

"Note how relaxed they are".

Au contraire, mon ami.....the Bushies are tensed up. Obama is the one relaxed. It's easy to see who the alpha male is in that little pack.

From the article:
““The National Constitution Center’s mission to improve civic education and engagement and inspire active citizenship is filling a critical void in our country,” Bush said. “I will do my best to advance the Center’s mission and continue the vision set forth by President Clinton’s leadership these last three years.”

The mission of the nonprofit center, which houses a museum in Philadelphia, is to promote understanding of the United States Constitution.”

Collectivist Bull Sh*tski! Worthy of Brezhinski! That collectivist blather could as well have been written by the Communist Party, or a UN flunky. But it was said by a Bush. See a pattern there?

Now for a critical analysis of the above quotes from the article. Note carefully the National Constitution Center considers Jebbie the Nutt’s statement about continuing “the vision set forth by President Clinton ...” to be acceptable.

It is not.

Except to collectivists.

Which Jebbie the Nutt most certainly is.

‘Nuff said.

First, how does a president who was impeached and disbarred get to be chairman of anything?
Second, who would want to be associated with an organization that would have Clinton as Chairman?
Third, ...the answer to that question is, “Jeb Bush”.

I never heard about the National Constitution Center before. We are being played by both parties.

“The National Constitution Center is just plain stupid.”

There website is innocuous enough, but I have to agree any group that would have a former impeached President as their chairman doesn’t deserve any support.

It’s all about creating a narrative from the beginning and work off of that narrative from here on in.
