Rush Limbaugh rejects Jeb Bush comments
Politico ^ | 6/14/13 | REBECCA ELLIOTT

Posted on 06/15/2013 7:58:26 AM PDT by jimbo123

Rush Limbaugh snapped at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for calling Republicans too reactionary, saying the party lost in 2012 because it “is considered wishy-washy.”

“Jeb Bush said that too many Republicans are reactionary,” the conservative radio host said on his program Friday, according to a show transcript. “It’s a code word used by people who aren’t conservative to taint us as extremists.”

-snip-

“So Jeb Bush, who we really like here, said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition today that he wasn’t gonna be critical of the Obama administration. That really worked out for Romney, didn’t it?” Limbaugh responded.

Bush is speaking on CNN, NBC in the Wash Post.

GOPe is turning on high.

They will not recognize the reality, there. They are mining for liberal voters even now, and more than ever.

Why does he really like him there? And does anyone say going to anymore?

Surprised that Rush yesterday did not state the origin of the use of the word “reactionary” - the Leninists, Marxists and communists in Russia during the revolution. Marx’s writings.

So, an element of communism has now crept into the GOP.

RIP - GOP. You are dead.

I didn’t hear that part of Rush’s monologue, but if that’s a direct quote that he said “whom we really like here”, about Jeb, then he will be savaged for saying that and people will ignore the fact you are presenting that he took down Jeb’s speech.

Same with Rubio, if Rush personally likes Rubio but bluntly takes down his stupid “gang of 8” bill, people will ignore the essence of Rush’s put down (he HATES the bill and thinks Republicans are braindead STUPID for it) and instead attack Rush for liking Rubio.

All the big three - Rush, Hannity and Levin - are aghast at Republican STUPIDITY on this bill. But if they don’t hate Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio - just hate the bill - that’s not good enough for far too many people.

It’s good enough for me. And as the crunch comes, count on them to obsess over this disastrous bill in trying to stop it before it destroys America forever.

Why does he like him, you ask? He knows the entire Bush family personally and he personally likes them. However, do not allow yourself to be propagandized into believing that Rush is anything other than horrified by this stupid immigration bill that the Republicans are trying to jam down our throats.

He did

But guess what? Who are the real reactionaries? Mainstream freaking Republicans. Democrats say, "We need amnesty." "Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, we do! Uh, well, maybe a smarter way, but, yeah, yeah." The Republicans are the ones who are always reacting. Whatever the Democrats say, Republicans react and just snap to. Karl Marx came up with the word.

Establishment Republicans Paint Us as Reactionary, Unpatriotic Extremists

The Bushes were catastrophes. They and their mealy mouthed “mechanic”Carl Rove should have blown his opponents out of the water.
They didn’t. They were BOTH cliffhangers.

The GOP isn’t known as the Party of Stupid without cause.

Jeb: illegals are more fertile.

Rubio: illegals will pay for border security.

Some previous: illegals will save social security system.

The Party of Stupid? Many times they open their mouths and prove it.

LOL

What Jebby doesn't seem bright enough to understand is that its not fertility, but a welfare state that encourages children without consequence. On the other hand are the families who can't afford children because they're supporting the welfare state.

As far as immigrants being entrepreneurial, its a lot easier for those who don't pay taxes, get business licenses, or face the same scrutiny as the rest of us.

Bush(43) won both his elections. In 2004, he increased the number of congressional seats. He is hardly a catastrophe.

McCain is the one who helped elect The Messiah - not George W. Bush. And the moral decline of the American people did not help either.

I don’t hate them - or anyone. I believe GW is a good man, but blind to the principles of our nation in the beginnning and how he damaged them.

Jeb however, is another McCain/Romney/Dole. He is pure politician. He seems to lack the character that his brother has.

And if the GOP is stupid enough to nominate him, we are indeed past recovery.

Without a “reset” that would be traumatic.......

I agree. George H W Bush never really did like Reagan. Bush saw himself as one of the elite, and to him, Reagan was just a rube.

I think the party started moving away from conservatism sometime around the late ninties. The 1994 election was the last hurrah for conservatives in the GOP.

Until 2006, when he lost BOTH chambers, but at least he 'had a Congress he could work with on comprehensive immigration.'

He did manage to collapse the economy and start the first bailout bills.

9/11 increased Republican congressional seats, and also provided cover for W's liberal, big-spending programs of his first term.

After the unity and patriotism of 9/11 waned, we got the real W/Rove effect in 2006 and 2008, which were two consecutive catastrophes.

All either Bush did was ride in on the political capital and influence earned by others (Reagan, Gingrich, etc.), and then fritter it away with their Democrat-lite, big spending approach to government.

Rush Limbaugh rejects Jeb Bush comments
BFD - don't care what any Bush has to say, nor Rush, especially since Rush has been saying the same thing for the last 5 years ... "Øbama regime" ... but hasn't DONE a damn thing to stop him.
In fact Rush opened his big mouth calling Sandra "Flake" a slut and gave the loonie-left's "GOP war on women" enough ammo for weeks and weeks.
Been listening to Rush since 1991 and believe me, it's been a looooong time since he's been on the the "Cutting Edge of Societal Evolution."

McCain is the one who helped elect - The Destroyer

You are correct. The MSM has their very usable mc cain to promote the 'it's bushes fault' during Bush's admin. It was so obvious, yet mc cain relished in being used by enemy for their purpose. He was rewarded with letting him run - he bowed to BHO yet couldn't stop kicking Bush whenever he got the chance. Is there something in the Arizona water that makes them dull and they can't see the obvious? He showed his rabid side some more during the primary with the conservative opponent for his seat. He truly is the enemy within.

You are correct. JEB Bush is just a classic careerist political whore. His brother is actually a decent man who never thought very much about what the foundational documents of this country were really about. Unfortunately his wife, who did help turn him away from a destructive lifestyle, is a classic ‘Christian social liberal’. If you are a Methodist or baptist you can find a lot of such women in various church committees. They really think being a poor is something morally special and those who aren't are obliged to constantly kiss the posteriors of the maladaptive and dysfunctionals because that is how they interpret the Sermon on the Mount and the parable of the Prodigal Son. GW is a good man personally but is aversion to abstract thinking and the people around him that he leaned on, Bill Clements, Baker, Rove, are or , in the case of Clements, snakes and evil people. Also, as a rich Texan GW , as many in his class do, really personally prefer Mexicans over working class white Texans. White Texans have too much self respect and while they work for you they make it clear they are not your servants or serfs. Mexicans fawn all over ‘El patron’ and wealthy Texans too often can't get enough of believing these folks really do love them. It is sickening to see but it is part of the Lone Star landscape.

Bush 1 abandoned the Reagan legacy and became a one term proposition for it. The Rockefeller wing of the GOP never understood Reagan and never bought into Reagan’s principles.

Jeb Bush is probably the best politician of the three - but he is a middle of the road type guy. Florida is a different animal - GOP Governor’s there - Crist/Bush - made a political living riding the fence because that is what gets you elected in Florida - not firebrand conservatism. That is why the Rockefeller GOP likes GOP Governors from Florida so much - the demographics favor them.

They are blind to the fact that it won’t translate to the conservative base in the rest of the country. As popular as Rubio was prior to the shamnesty debacle, I would argue Rubio would have had a better shot at being elected President than Governor of Florida.

I hate saying it, but this reality carries huge ramifications for the GOP nationally moving forward. Florida is gradually shifting towards becoming a reliable pickup for the rats in Presidential elections and when that happens, regardless of adding millions of reliable rat voters thanks to Rubio and gang, the GOP is done in the White House statistically - can’t get there without Florida.

Yep, the Bushes were less involved in 2010, but once again the GOPe, Beltway crowd has squandered the victories won by more conservative activists, this time the Tea Party in 2010, and set the party back once again.

They are all a bunch of squatters and wastrels who do nothing but fritter away the victories won by others. And now Boner and McConnel and others (Rove still hanging around) are continuing the 'work' of GHWB, W and Rove, etc.

I believe the husband and boys, listened to mama Barbara. They got their hatred of Reagan/conservatism through her. She hates them so - the impulsive woman couldn’t shut her mouth and made a comment about Sarah which showed her contempt. It was very wrong of her to say with contempt - Sarah should stay in Alaska. The old hag Barbara has many character flaws. IMO, she lost her ‘first lady’ appeal and even as a mother she sounded like not a good role model. Glad I didn’t grow up in that household.

In '04 he and others warned barney frank, et al about the housing and banks would create a collapse and they fought back saying it will not happen. And clinton started it with his liberal handout of 'everyone owning a home' with no income verification. The committee, the warnings and the liberals fighting back are all on you tube. Yet, for some reason some are hell bent in believing Bush did manage to collapse the economy .

> “Bush(43) won both his elections. In 2004, he increased the number of congressional seats. He is hardly a catastrophe.”

Not accurate. He didn’t do any of those things, we did it for him.

Here is the precise description:

Conservatives won the election for Bush in 2000 as they chose to support Bush over Gore in 2000 thinking Bush was more like them and was in any case the best that could be had under the circumstances. Many had misgivings as to his true conservative leanings and many had concerns about his experience and judgement but were persuaded that he would be surrounded by wise conservatives. The only consistent conservative trait that Bush expressed personally and through his policy formation brought by his inner circle of conservative advisers was in faith-based actions and orders.

Conservatives won the election for Bush over Kerry in 2004 because they thought with a GOP House and Senate he would be able to pass the conservative agenda. I personally worked night and day and gave every last cent I had to elect Bush in 2004 thinking major tax reform during his second term would be passed.

Bush’s second term was a disaster. We gave him the benefit of the doubt, we gave him a full GOP Congress and he squandered all of it.

No more Bushes, ever.

If Jeb Bush won the GOP primary, would he even get 30% in the general? These rinos, Christie, Ryan, Rubio, McCain, Romney are disgusting. I just can’t see voting for these types ever again. Supporting these buffoons is like spending money on a new transmission, engine, brakes in a beaten down old car. If the GOP puts up another rino, time to trade her in for a new model.

Florida will turn blue. If you go to the Tampa, St Pete, Clearwater area, you will have seen over the past 10 years a vast invasion by criminal illegal Mexicans. They are pouring in.

I am starting to believe that before they leave the Sewer of Mexico, that these criminals are "told" which state to settle in.

I can imagine the RATs orchestrating the invasion so as to turn critical RED states blue.

After all, how would these illegals just happen to know to invade the Clearwater area?

Well if nothing else works I predict Jeb’s wife will be an albatross. She is not a public figure. She speaks with an accent and I don’t see her as a plus on the campaign trail. The MSM will dredge up her little escapade of not declaring a bunch of stuff in customs when she came back to Fla from a trip to Europe.

In addition Jeb finished 32 right behind Crispy Kreme in the CPAC 2016 presidential vote. Without the conservative vote in the primaries Jeb will never get the nomination. I think Momma Bush is pushing her favorite son to run and I don’t really think Jeb’s heart is in it anyway.

Knocking off Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan will be harder than he thinks. Especially Rand and Cruz.
