Jeb Bush: Americans are losers

His communications director/campaign manager feels the same way

Jeb Bush Speaks At The Reagan Library About His New Book

If the nascent Jeb Bush presidential campaign has a central message other than “I am entitled” it is that Americans are pretty stupid and they need their betters to run things for them. Take, for instance, Jeb Bush’s comments on the egregious loser-ness that being American entails. I touched on Jeb Bush’s stated ambivalence about the Americans and their ability to succeed in this piece. Drawing on the same article in The Atlantic, by David Frum, titled “Is Jeb Bush a Republican Obama?”, the National Review delves in an interview Bush gave:

Jeb’s dissatisfaction with America, and desire to change it to be more to his liking, is a theme he returns to often. Jeb’s enthusiasm for immigration (“the public-policy issue he cares about by far the most,” as Frum puts it) is “not only a positive judgment on the immigrants themselves,” Frum notes, but “it is also a negative judgment on native-born Americans.” Some examples:

“They’re more entrepreneurial, they set up more business, they buy more homes, they’re more family-oriented, they work in jobs that in many cases are jobs that have gone unfilled” (at 39:40)

“I think Detroit would do real well if we started repopulating it with young, aspirational people.” (45:20)

“We have people that mope around thinking ‘my life is bad, my children will not have the same opportunities that I had.’ What a horrible notion in America, the most optimistic of places, and I think an economically driven immigration plan . . . would lift our spirits up dramatically.” (19:25)

“The one way that we can rebuild the demographic pyramid is to fix a broken immigration system. . . . If we do this, we will rebuild our country in a way that will allow us to grow. If we don’t do it, we will be in decline, because the productivity of this country is dependent on young people that are equipped to be able to work hard….Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans over the last 20 years. Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families and they have more intact families.” (12:25)

The truth or falsity of these claims is almost beside the point, because Jeb’s preference for immigrants over Americans is based on emotion, not reason.

This is not an accident. This is policy. This is a man who is a member of the elite and believes that the American people are wanting and it is up to him to save us. Take, for instance, his communications director, a guy named Tim Miller who was executive director the America Rising PAC (founded by Mitt Romney’s campaign manager):

He worked in Iowa on Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 2008 presidential campaign, and was national press secretary of Jon Huntsman’s 2012 presidential campaign. Miller has a bachelor’s degree from George Washington University’s School of Media & Public Affairs.


The man who is now Bush’s campaign manager said in 2010, that “The people are too stupid to govern themselves.”

(trivia question– how was Sarah Palin treated by McCain’s communications shop? like she was an idiot?)

He, as it turns out, holds exactly the same views as Bush in regards to the intelligence of Americans:

Earlier this month Bush named Tim Miller, the former Executive Director of America Rising PAC, to be his campaign manager [sic].  Miller, who is openly gay, has campaigned hard against traditional marriage amendments, including Proposition 8 in California.

No matter where you stand on marriage, an exchange on Miller’s Facebook wall in 2010 should give any conservative, or for that matter libertarian, serious pause.  What Miller said about the American people should be cringe-worthy to even the most establishment of “moderate” Republicans.


While Jeb Bush is advocating supplanting native born Americans with a better sort of people, his campaign manager believes that a handful of judges, completely unresponsive to the electorate, are better rulers than the people themselves. At the same time, they fired their Chief Technology Officer, a guy named Ethan Czahor, for tweets he made years ago lampooning feminists… and hyper-sensitive homosexuals.

I have voted for a Democrat for president once in my life. I will go on record here in saying that if Jeb Bush is nominated I will not only vote Democrat I will send that Democrat money.


It won’t take much of this kind of publicity to pepper Bush’s road to the White House with potholes and speed bumps. His statements sound as if he really believes that the country would be better off with more illegal aliens taking over more of the country’s commerce. I’m not ready to go as far as Streiff (article’s author) and commit to voting democrat if Bush is the Republican nominee, BUT it’ll depend on who the democrat nominee is. The sooner we dump Bush, the better off we’ll be.

    If Jeb Bush is the best that the R’s can field then WE Americans are in real trouble.

    I am tired of being fed a shit sandwich.

  2. Kathy says:

    The fact that Tim Miller worked for nothing but losers, pretty much sums it up, as is repeating his pattern in working for Bush. Bush is a loser. People are tired of the name and we sure as hell don’t need to coddle the illegals any more.

    Although I am kind of liking the idea of letting them have Detroit. Nobody’s using it and that would sure unclog some other cities.

  3. captbogus2 says:

    Yes, his comments are as insulting as his brother’s, “They’re just here for jobs no American will do.”

  4. captbogus2 says:

    Next thing you know Jeb will be saying, “Islam is a peaceful religion..”

  5. captbogus2 says:

    I don’t think Jeb has a chance in hell of becoming POTUS. If he is the choice above a real people’s choice the people will stay home. Again.

  6. Grouchy says:

    Ronnie, ye left too soon, and didn’t name your successor~!

  7. clyde says:

    No matter who becomes the eventual nominee, the left WILL pillory them, AND, if they can’t find REAL shit, they will make it up. The biggest problem with Bush v.3 is he’s VERY liberal, and every time the PSP runs a liberal, or “moderate”, they get their ass handed to them. If Bush v.3 ends up being the nominee, I will NOT vote for a democrat, but WILL go with the closest party to MY beliefs I can find. SCREW this “vote for me because the democrat is worse”. How well has THAT strategy worked out ? Good piece, Garnet.

      Exactly, Clyde. As I have said in previous comments: A Jeb Bush candidacy guarantees a Hillary Clinton win!

    Clearly Jeb Bush’s ideas about immigrants are based on a very limited sphere of observation. I pulled up Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitive list just now, and 9 of those on the list had Hispanic surnames (the 2013 census showed Texas had a Hispanic population of 38%). It was the same when I lived in Southern California as well. EVERY time I would look at the CrimeStoppers news page the people listed were almost always Hispanic men. I don’t doubt that many immigrants are hardworking but many are also criminals and welfare suckers. We used to be able to pick and choose who came here but thanks to illegal immigration and liberals like Jeb Bush rewarding the illegals with benefits at our expense we get now get the freeloaders and the La Raza types who want to take “their country” back. No thanks.

    Bye, bye, Jeb. I think (and pray) that your candidacy is over.
