Departing candidate Mitt gets it right with Jeb jab

Bush fatigue coupled with Jeb Bush’s notorious amnesty stance make his candidacy unacceptable

In his Friday morning announcement that he will not be running for president, Mitt Romney lobbed a less than subtle parting shot at 61-year-old Jeb Bush.  Though cloaked, conservative politicos got his message loud and clear —- and Romney was right on target.

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney, 67, said, as he underscored the need for a fresh face for the GOP.

“I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee,” he told supporters on the conference call during which he announced his decision. “In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.”

Though not supporters of Romney, we join him in that hope.

Here is Jeb Bush calling the invasion of the United States by illegal aliens, “an act of love.” 

“Yes, they broke the law,” Jeb Bush acknowledges, “but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. It shouldn’t rile people up that people are coming to this country to provide for their families.”

    only one candidate worth voting for in 2016 for president unless another emerges, all the others including cruz, walker, perry etc…. are for some mass legalization scheme while calling it something else.

    only one calls for deporting millions of illegals, and choosing American citizens first.

    Dennis Michael Lynch.

    I suggest watching this full video, but if you only want to hear his position on illegals skip ahead to the 14 minute mark.

    I myself will not vote for any candidate who supports ANY form of amnesty, and to be clear, amnesty is ANYTHING allowing illegals to stay in the country including maintain the status quo.

    I expect nothing good from Jeb Bush. He spends more time on Spanish language Univision speaking Spanish than he does brushing his teeth. Jeb’s wife Columba is Mexican born and he lived in Mexico for several years.

    Jeb’s son George Prescott “P” Bush is already being groomed for the what the Bush family obviously views as a birthright dynasty presidency. “P” is a handsome young lawyer with the obligatory blonde wife, also a lawyer, and in the family tradition, a son named Prescott. He was recently elected as Texas Land Commissioner, which I understand from friends in Austin is a big deal.

    His website looks very similar to a campaign ad. What a surprise……

    After watching that video of Jeb Bush, it’s clear he would make us long for the days of Barack Obama — a man I consider an enemy of the United States of America!

    Regarding the “act of love” phrase which was uttered by Bush:

    “According to The Hill, Bush’s wife Columba, who is a “Mexican-born immigrant,” has “steeped Jeb in Hispanic culture,” and Bush’s allies reportedly “credit her with helping shape Jeb’s ‘act of love’ message” on comprehensive amnesty legislation. . . ” (from

    Oh, great, now we have a guy who is allowing his foreign-born wife to write his speeches.

    Will we soon be pressing 1 for Spanish?

    The fruits of the McBush AMNESTY doctrine can already be seen in major cities across America, especially Mexifornia. Entire unassimilated ghetto neighborhoods are ruled by illegal alien Mexican and central American street gangs, who came here out of love of preying on helpless innocents. As they gain AMNESTY from obamao & McBush and the McGOP, the gangsters become more bold, more violent and more antagonistic to American law enforcement.

    But broaden your focus – think jihadi terrorists. Big brother George exploded muslim immigration on US right after 9-11, transporting entire communities of jihadi terrorists to be imbedded in our cities. Think Dearborn, MI where the call to worship is the sweetest sound obamao has ever heard, and where non-muslims are not allowed to go in public. Think about the jihadi training camps scattered across our landscape. We know that jihadi terrorists have been sneaking across the southern border for at least ten years, hiding in the no-go zones until they can really show US their love. For McBush and the other McRINOS, it will be AMNESTY for them also.

    And don’t forget, ol’ Jeb is a total coward whose morals are created for special occasions on his etch-a-sketch board. He will never have the (insert noun here) to fight to save US nor to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. He was the governor in charge of everything in Florida when one of his state Komrade judges was having his Gestapo thugs torture & murder the helpless Terri Schiavo. McBush hid under his bed at the governor’s mansion, covering his ears so he wouldn’t hear the agony of Terri or the cries for mercy from her family, while big brother George hid under his bed in the White house.

    When you get right down to it, McBush has nothing but the name going for him, unless you are an illegal alien with a large extended family. Big, overwhelming, tax-fed, controlling government?—yup, that’s the McBush model. That’s the McEstablishment GOP model that the McPerry’s and the McChristies and etc love. The field is covered with chameleons who will enslave US with their plans for a global government. Be very careful – we’re getting to the tipping point.
    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” –Ronald Reagan

    God bless America.

      Say, could this be the Ric Perry Texas we hear about all the time, where Gov. McPerry tried to force mandatory (no op out) muslim appreciation classes in his gov’t schools, until the parents rose in revolt?

      Just another phantom, etch-a-sketch pseudo-conservative. Be careful.

    Mitt did the right thing to bow out. He likely wasn’t going to be elected and his previous campaign was very weak. The real question is whether you would rather have Jeb or Hillary, that’s about all that matters. Hillary is a known but not convicted fraudster, she is power hungry, can not handle opposition, and she is a known lesbian. We absolutely don’t need her.

      Jeb on the other hand intervenes (with his small goverment stance) in personal causes such as keeping brain dead people alive.
