    The long-running feud between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump escalated yet again Saturday, with the former Florida governor releasing a two-minute video on social media mocking the billionaire's fitness to be commander-in-chief. *snip* The clip is the latest salvo in the Bush-Trump rivalry, which has often been marked by bitter and personal exchanges between the two prominent Republican presidential candidates. On Friday, Trump suggested Bush's brother, former President George W. Bush, shared in the blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks because they occurred during his presidency. Saturday's round centered on a video set to the tune of circus music that...

    Donald Trump's misogynistic rant against Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly led to his Republican primary rivals demanding he apologize for the disgusting remarks. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Saturday hit the motormouthed mogul for insulting Kelly — and women — at a conservative activists' conference and demanded an apology. "Come on — give me a break. I mean, do we want to win? Do we want to insult 53% of all voters? What Donald Trump said is wrong," Bush said to cheers at the RedState Gathering. The conference's organizer, Erick Erickson, cut Trump from the roster after the billionaire...

    Jeb Bush says Republicans can’t win if they become the angry party. The Republican presidential candidate accused his GOP rival, Donald Trump, of “preying upon people’s fears” to divide the county along racial and ethnic lines for political gain in the battle over illegal immigration. Bush argued that that is a losing strategy. “We need to stop tearing — separating — ourselves by race and ethnicity and income. We need to focus on the things that tie us together,” said Bush, who is one of the few Republican presidential candidates who supports a pathway to legalization, although not full citizenship,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he is personally offended by rival Donald Trump's recent remarks about Mexico and immigrants and calls the remarks far outside the mainstream of Republican thought. In spite of earlier criticism from Bush and other Republicans and companies moving to cut business ties to Trump, the real estate mogul has defended his remarks. "I don't think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think," Bush told reporters after marching in Fourth of July parades in New Hampshire.

    (CNN)—Jeb Bush said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that he believes he'll be in a better position to break away from the rest of the Republican field when he announces his presidential candidacy. "I think this transition to a candidacy will allow me to be more direct about my advocacy of the leadership skills necessary for the next president to fix a few things," Bush told CNN's Dana Bash in Tallinn, Estonia, on Saturday. "And as a candidate, contrary to someone who has been listening and learning along the way, I'll offer up alternatives...

    "......Bush, the son and brother of two former GOP presidents and a strong favorite of businesspeople and other establishment Republicans, was both cheered and booed during his speech at CPAC. He used that platform to defend his more controversial stands on immigration reform and on the Common Core educational standards. While Walker finished well ahead of Bush in CPAC’s presidential straw poll, 21 percent to 8 percent, Bush is scoring big where it counts a lot more – raising campaign funds in the early going. Although he has yet to formally announce a candidacy, Bush is on target to raise...

But he also called for Congress to use the border crisis to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation. -snip- But he also urged Congress to "demonstrate leadership" on the border crisis by passing amnesty legislation.

Jeb Bush defended immigrants and weaved together ideas about immigration, education and the plight of youths in a speech Thursday night at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts. -snip- Bush said a population pyramid with more young people at its base is important because the youth support the elderly. He explained that in China the pyramid is becoming inverted because they are trying to control population and as a result the elderly are going to outnumber the young.

    Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday, seeking to revive efforts to pass gun-reform legislation in Congress, warned lawmakers opposed to reform that Americans aren't on their side. "The country has changed" since the deadly shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Biden said during remarks delivered on Tuesday afternoon in the White House's South Court auditorium. Lawmakers "will pay a price—a political price ... for not getting engaged and dealing with gun safety." Two months after the Senate failed to support the expansion of background checks for gun purchasers despite intense pressure from the administration, victims rights groups...
  • Bush: Romney's stance on immigration was costly

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush writes in a new book that Mitt Romney moved so far to the right on immigration that it proved "all but impossible" for the Republican presidential nominee to appeal to Hispanic voters last year. He says the nation needs to completely overhaul its immigration policies but cautions against providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. In "Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution," Bush writes that the immigration debate holds serious consequences for the nation and members of his Republican party, calling fellow Republicans "remarkably tone-deaf when it comes to courting Hispanic voters — to...
