Jeb Bush Fix Social Security American Bridge 2016 Election Oppo Fail

The progressive opposition research machine/PAC thing, American Bridge, is wetting their britches over what might be the absolutely lamest “gotcha” video I’ve ever seen.

American Bridge describes itself as a, “progressive research and communications organization committed to holding Republicans accountable for their words and actions and helping you ascertain when Republican...

Jeb Bush

I must’ve missed the “everyone make stuff up” memo circulating through media channels this week. Thankfully, I’m just a blogger.

Tuesday, the Huffington Post published a post with the headline, Jeb Bush In 1995: Unwed Mothers Should Be Publicly Shamed. There’s just one problem though — that’s not what Jeb Bush...

Jeb Bush may be a decent man, but when it comes to fundraising, conservative donors are putting their eggs in another candidate’s basket.

There has been a lot of hand-wringing over Jeb Bush’s seeming lack of readiness for a presidential campaign in the wake of his apparent inability to articulate a coherent response to Megyn Kelly’s Iraq War hypothetical question.

After days of hedging and backpedaling, Jeb finally landed on the “right” answer: “no, knowing...

This could be added to the list of reasons some conservatives don’t want Jeb Bush as the Republican nominee in 2016.

But it’s a pretty big one, IMHO:

Jeb Bush says that the Senate should confirm the nomination of Loretta Lynch, President Barack Obama’s choice for attorney general. A number of Senate Republicans...

Jeb Bush has a problem.  He wants to be president, and he is apparently planning to run as a Republican; however, he’s not particularly conservative in key areas that are important to the conservative base, including immigration and education.

On the world stage, Bush sees America as “a leader among equals,” whatever...

Elizabeth Warren Jeb Bush

During the 2012 Massachusetts Senate race, liberals dismissed as irrelevant Elizabeth Warren’s false claim that she was Native American, because they liked her progressive politics.

Most people don’t understand, however, what Warren did.

Warren didn’t just once check a box on a meaningless form from which she stood no gain.

As detailed at ElizabethWarrenWiki.org,...

Isn’t it truly amazing.

They did it to Mitt Romney.

Now they are doing it to Jeb Bush.

Those who showed no interest in and tried to shut down as “racist” all inquiry into Barack Obama’s childhood, high school, college, law school and Reverend Wright years all of the sudden get very interested in...

I didn’t see this coming.

When Aleister posted the Reader Poll matching Mitt versus Jeb, I thought there would be a relatively close split.

We deliberately forced the readership into that choice to get a sense of how people who normally would not vote for either in a primary would split between the...

It looks more and more like Jeb Bush is going to run for president in 2016. If he does, he’ll surely run as one of those moderate Republicans that liberals in media claim to admire and respect, right up to the general election when they transform from Dr. Jekyll to Mr....

Jeb Bush (emphasis added):

“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.
