Jeb Clamp-it

“Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” — Jeb Bush on illegal immigrants

You could say the same thing about pedophiles.  And a lot of Democrats have. Republicans, however, usually side not with the perpetrators of a crime, but with its victims — in this case the poor American taxpayer, routinely dunned for millions in order to subsidize the well-being of people who shouldn’t be here in the first place.  No wonder conservatives are treating the idea of a Jeb Bush candidacy with all the fervor usually reserved for outbreaks of the swine flu.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, considering a 2016 presidential bid, does not have the support of his party’s base, with just one in four Republicans eager for him to run and an even worse 18 percent of self-identified conservatives backing his bid … A word bubble produced by the poll showed the hurdles he faces entering the presidential race. The acronym RINO, or “Republican in name only,” is prominent(4-traders.com)

The thought of having to choose between another President Bush or another President Clinton is enough to send even semi-responsible citizens screaming to the nearest liquor cabinet — and I’m as semi-responsible as anybody. But after suffering through 5 years of Barack Obama, my booze bin is as empty as a liberal’s brain.  I can’t afford Democrats OR Republicans any more.  At least, not the kind that the Beltway bunco artists keep offering.

    I think the RINOs have been wanting Jeb for quite some time. They will support him. I just hope a bunch of conservatives split the conservative vote, again. Jeb Bush would open the border’s floodgates from the third world.

    Correction – that is supposed to read I just hope a bunch of conservatives DON’T split the conservative vote again
