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. …

...chairman of the Board of Trustees at the prestigious National Constitution Center, succeeding former President Bill Clinton

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".

/facepalm

The National Constitution Center is just plain stupid.

Ever been there? You’d think the Constitution is nothing but the Bill of Rights. And not the real Bill of Rights—the Bill of Rights as interpreted by the Supreme Court.

It’s really the National Glorification of the Supreme Court Center.

"jeb's been anointed."

You don't think they got together just to chat, do you?



***Note how relaxed they are. Except that Jeb looks like he's ready to drop down on one knee.

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.”

Yet they can't find anything good to say about Sarah Palin.

“He’s very thoughtful about calling”—ol’ Bill certainly is a wily old pol.
Gennifer Flowers, who stepped in front of cameras during the 1992 presidential campaign and declared she’d had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, said this week that the former president wanted to “put on a hoodie” and “jog up” to her house to see her as recently as 2005.

“I was at home by myself and the phone rang and it said unavailable, and I picked up the phone and it was him and he wanted to come by my house and talk to me,” Flowers told New Orleans station WGNO-TV in an interview over red wine.

“become chairman of the Board of Trustees at the prestigious National Constitution Center, succeeding former President Bill Clinton.”

Is this a Soros operation or a ham-fisted operation to rip off money from taxpayers via federal grants?

Already it starts: “one of the top potential GOP contenders for a 2016 presidential run”. There you have it folks, your vote matters nothing. Bush vs. Clinton and Bush wins; Bush vs. 9bambi’s third term - 75% vote for the LIBs.

It doesn't make any difference who runs in 2016. Jeb Bush will be our next president because TPTB have an important job for him.

After 8 years of Obama, the dollar will become so worthless that people will be clamoring for the good old days of a Bush in the WH.

Jeb will tell the desperate American people that the only way to preserve prosperity (Hey, there's a campaign slogan!) will be to adopt a global currency. Of course, that currency will be controlled by the elite and will only be doled out to the rest of us. It will not have much purchasing power, but once it is the only accepted currency, we will have no choice.

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.

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.
