Jeb Bush to Establishment: I’m One of You

It’s becoming apparent that Jeb Bush has decided to run for President. He’s been the GOP establishment’s top choice since Chris Christie destroyed his own chances with his childish bridge-closing scandal. And now Bush is signaling to the establishment that he’s willing to play ball with them and ignore the desires of the conservatives. Last Friday he made a speech to business leaders in Florida and said that illegal immigrants are “risk takers” who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America. This has to be music to the ears of people like John Boehner and John McCain, both of whom are pushing strongly for immigration reform, which is just code for legalizing illegal immigrants.

Miami Herald – Bush has advocated for pathways to citizenship and residency for illegal immigrants, enhanced border security and immigrant tracking technology and an emphasis on admitting immigrants based on the nation’s needs, not family relationships with current U.S. citizens.

McCain to Constituents: I’m Not Sorry

Senator John McCain was back home in Arizona during the Senate recess and was at a town meeting in Gilbert, AZ. When asked for an apology for calling Tea Partiers “hobbits”, he replied “I said that if anyone misunderstood what was printed in the media, I’m sorry, it was misunderstood, but I’m not sorry for what I said.”

When Liberals Suggest Republican Candidates, Do the Opposite!

Sandra Fish has written a piece for Politics Daily in which she describes the steps Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Sharron Angle are taking to test the waters for a possible presidential campaign. She asks the question “…is this really the best the GOP can do?”

She then goes on at length complaining about Palin slamming the media on Thanksgiving Day, Bachmann for daring to speak to the Tea Party after the State of the Union and Angle for saying, “I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.”

Then, in typical liberal fashion, she offers up ‘better’ candidates to the Republicans: Condoleeza Rice, Elizabeth Dole, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich.

Anytime the liberals are suggesting candidates to the Republicans, it’s time to do exactly the opposite. The very fact that Republicans such as Palin and Bachmann are continually attacked is a sure sign they are feared […] → Keep reading
