Jeb Bush: I Can ‘Persuade’ Conservatives on Amnesty

From Breitbart:


Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush believes he can “persuade” conservatives to support comprehensive amnesty legislation during a potential 2016 presidential campaign.

In the second part of his interview with a local Florida television station this week, Bush was asked about the “immigration issue” and whether he could “get through the primary” with his pro-amnesty positions. Bush replied to NBC 6 in Florida that “a candidate gets to persuade.” 

“I think there’s a compelling case that, if we want to be young and dynamic again, we have to make legal immigration easier than illegal immigration, that we control our borders, enforce the laws, but that we embrace our immigrant heritage and allow our country to take off. You gotta do both,” he added. “You gotta protect the borders, enforce the law, be respectful of the rule of law, and at the same time be able to encourage young aspirational people to come to our country. It’s a win-win. I have no problems advancing that idea.” 

Bush, who earlier declared that a Republican must be willing to “lose the primary” in order to win the general election, announced this week that he is “actively exploring” a potential presidential campaign. Aware that his positions on immigration and Common Core will be significant hurdles, Bush seems intent on doubling down on his moderate positions instead of flip-flopping and coming off as a phony.

It’s too late – he’s already ‘coming off as a phony’ because he is a Democrat posing as a Republican, although he’s doing a terrible job of hiding it. His thinking that he can persuade Americans takes on a Gruber air in that he thinks we’re stupid and have to be convinced he’s right. I for one am tired of people thinking we’re stupid and trying to shove their liberal ideas and attitudes down our throats.

If this were a horse race, he’d never make it out of the gate.

I agree with Ted.

    Jeb Bush vs The Hitlery – a contest created in Hell.
    Ain’t gonna happen.

  2. vonmesser says:

    Rush mentioned a Jeb Bush-Hillary Clinton ticket on the radio the other day. Says it wouldn’t matter who was president and who was vice president. They would both rule the same way.

    As for him persuading on amnesty – not only “NO” but “NO FRIGGIN WAY – HELL NO!”

  3. Jim says:

    I think Cruz’s picture captured my feelings toward Jeb Bush quite well.

    • Kathy says:

      It captured mine too, Jim. Bush couldn’t remotely be called a Republican – he’s a worse RINO than McCain. Wait…is that possible?

      Thanks for the visit and the comment.

  4. Garnet92 says:

    Jeb highlighted his stupidity by making that idiotic statement. He can’t possibly believe that he’ll convince conservatives to embrace amnesty (and Common Core too). He must be trying to convince establishment-prone Republicans that it’s ok to support him ’cause he’ll eventually win over conservatives and wallop Hitlery. The only people who believe that already plan to vote for Hitlery.

  5. upaces88 says:

    His arrogance has reached a level of mental illness!

  6. Terry says:

    I just went from “NO” to “OH HELL NO” as far as that idiot getting my vote.

    • Kathy says:

      My thoughts too, Terry, not that he had much of a chance to begin with, but it only goes down from here with this kind of statement.

  7. Hardnox says:

    Convince us… NEVER.

    What part of ILLEGAL doesn’t Jeb understand? What a dick. Bush personifies exactly what is wrong with the republican party and the elites that run it. They are completely out of touch with what the majority of Americans and legal immigrants want them to do.

    • captbogus2 says:

      And they are out of touch because they don’t listen. And they don’t listen because they believe they are smarter than the rest of us. All the while losing the big one time after time.
      If they would just once listen to the American people they could create their dynasty.

    • Kathy says:

      I’m sick and tired of people acting like we’re stupid. First it was Gruber bragging about pulling the wool over our eyes and now Bush thinks he’s capable of convincing us amnesty is an okay thing. I don’t think I’m alone in that feeling and we’re not wrong in our stance on amnesty. That will become apparent to him as he makes his decision to run or not.

  8. captbogus2 says:

    The only thing his persuasion will do is persuade folks to stay home election day 2016..
    If the sonofabitch doesn’t realize that he is too damn dumb to be considered for POTUS.
    If he does realize it and runs anyway he is a frikkin’ traitor.

    • Kathy says:

      You’re right – they don’t listen and it’s because they’re too busy trying to tell us what to think or convince us wrong is right.

      Apparently he wasn’t paying attention during the November elections when things changed from blue to red, nor does he understand why. He should just stay home and save his money.

  9. BrianR says:

    This guy’s an utter d0uchebag.

    First of all, his brother thought he could “persuade” conservatives on amnesty, too, when he was President. It cost the GOP control of Congress.

    Secondly, how do you lose the primary and win the election? What’s that even supposed to mean? Once you lose the primary you’re OUT of the election, and don’t get to run anymore.

    This guy’s stupider than a bag of rocks. If the GOP nominates this chucklehead, I guess I’ll be voting third party. Again.

    • Kathy says:

      That whole thing about losing the primary didn’t make sense to me either, Brian. What a dumbass statement to make.

      And his attitude about needing amnesty to help us be ‘young and dynamic’ again makes even less sense. What a load of crap – has he taken a look at what’s coming across our border? Evidently not.

      • BrianR says:

        Yeah. We’ve had enough of these political “dynasties”, starting with the useless and idiotic Bushes, through the Clintons, Cuomos, Daleys, Kennedys, and all the rest of them.

        I just get absolutely infuriated when I hear this kind of gibberish from someone who claims to be on our “side”, while turning around and spouting all the garbage we hear all the time from the OTHER side. Why in HELL should we consider voting for this idiot? If we want socialism, we can just vote for the overt socialists in the Dem party.

    ‘Scuse me: “Jeb can convince conservatives” ? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA. What, is this walking douchebag a frigging comedian ? Here we go AGAIN. The uber-liberal wing of the party, setting itself up for DEFEAT before they even get started. PSP = RIP. Viva La Crispies.
