Jeb Bush for Prez? Let us not forget….
When Jeb ran for governor in 1994 (he lost), during a debate, an African American woman stood up and asked Bush what he planned on doing for black people in Florida. His response:
“… find a husband.”
Also during his 1994 campaign, Bush commented that women on welfare,
“… should be able to get their life together and find a husband.”
Again, during his 1994 run for Florida Govie, when Jeb was asked, in an interview with the Miami Herald, what to do with the millions of illegal immigrants, his response was simply:
“Start deporting people…. I don’t blame them for wanting to come to our country, but I don’t believe it’s necessarily our responsibility to allow them to come in.”
But later, in 2006, Jeb called it “just plain wrong” to charge illegal immigrants with a felony and opposed “penalizing the children of illegal immigrants” by denying them U.S. citizenship.
Then in 2012, Jeb released his book Immigration Wars in which he opposed citizenship and instead proposed “a path to permanent legal resident status.”
“Permanent residency in this context, however, should not lead to citizenship. It is absolutely vital to the integrity of our immigration system that actions have consequences — in this case, that those who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. … A grant of citizenship is an undeserving reward for conduct that we cannot afford to encourage.”
Well, dammit, Jeb. Which is it? (source)
Free the terrorist! (if it gets him votes)
In 1989, Jeb lobbied his President Daddy for the release of Cuban terrorist Orlando Bosch. Bosch was allegedly behind the bombing of a Cuban airliner in 1976 that killed 73 people. Bosch was in a federal prison on immigration violation. The release of Bosch helped boost Jeb’s popularity with the influential Cuban voters in Miami, which was much needed to help launch Bush’s Florida career.
More information about the Bush-Cuban relationship available here.
Scrub the voters.
According to Ari Berman, Rolling Stone:
Back in 2000, 12,000 eligible voters – a number twenty-two times larger than George W. Bush’s 537 vote triumph over Al Gore – were wrongly identified as convicted felons and purged from the voting rolls in Florida, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.
And then there is….
Jeb worked for a known fraudster, Camilo Padreda.
Jeb also was paid by another fraudster, Miguel Recarey, who is now an international fugitive. Miguel paid Bush to help him find a new headquarters for his health care company. (source)
Jeb Bush escaped testifying in a multi-million dollar bribery case.
And there are others. Phew, Jeb sure has had a lot of close calls…. Looks like he needs to find some better business partners. Or they need to stay away from him. Or both.
A rebel with a cause…
Although nearly all adults are much different with age than they were in youth, especially high school, there is a reason I am listing this little tidbit (I’ll explain shortly). Personally, I could care less about the pot-smoking. But I’m sure Jeb is digging the fact it is now legal in DC….
According to NYMag:
“In high school, Jeb went through a short period of rebellion as a member of the Andover Socialist Club, smoking pot and wearing his hair long.”
There’s a saying that we can choose our friends but not our family, meaning one can weed out the bad friends but cannot do so with family. But just as I mentioned above, there is a reason I am mentioning a few factoids about Jeb’s family.
Shop, but don’t tell.
In 1999, Bush’s wife “misled U.S. Customs officials about $19,000 in new clothing and jewelry she brought into the country because she didn’t want him to know how much she had spent on her five-day Paris shopping trip.”
In 2002, Bush’s daughter Noelle was arrested for trying to purchase Xanax with a bogus prescription. In rehab, she was caught with a “white rock like substance” thought to be crack cocaine. Between 1995 and 2002, she racked up seven speeding tickets, five other traffic violations, and was involved in three wrecks. (source)
In 1994, Bush’s eldest son, George P., broke into his ex-girlfriend’s house. George fleed the scene but later returned — driving his SUV into their front lawn. Apparently George had “been a problem” since the two broke up. The girl’s father did not press charges.
Jailbait baits jailbait.
Honestly, I consider this a cheap shot. After all, how many of us were virgins at 16 or 17? Anyway, in 2000, Jeb’s other son, “Jebby”, 16 at the time, was caught boinking a 17-year-old-girl in a car in a mall parking lot. At 16, I was doing the nasty in a ski boat at our summer lake cottage. Big deal.
So, why then have I mixed in these tidbits to Jeb’s messes he made himself? Because it just goes to show that honor is not of priority in the Jeb Bush household. It is entirely a “what’s-in-it-for-me” attitude. Do you think this would stop at the White House? It sure didn’t at the Florida Governor’s mansion.
And then there is Obama….
Now, after picking apart Jeb, let’s take a look at some of the scandal behind Obama and his family.

Primary reference used:
Mother Jones: Jeb Bush Just Took a Big Step Toward Running for President. Here Are 23 Reasons He Should Reconsider.
My stomach churns at the mere mention of the Bush name. That’s all the reason I need to dismiss his candidacy. That and an extreme aversion to the word “dynasty.”
I hear you. Just like Barbara said. There have been too many Bush’s in the White House.
And too many Communists. Obama’s long-time attachment to Islamists and Communists should have been a warning to all. Likewise, his ongoing efforts to prevent legal verification of his eligibility to even hold the office of President. His complete lack of business or military combat experience was a solid disqualifier, as we were all told regarding Bush before him.
Then there’s Hillary, whose first job out of college was in the law offices of the Communist Party USA, after her own long-time admiration of Saul Alinsky. Her Communist ideology runs deep, from her book “It Takes a Village” to her own push to illegally nationalize health care during the 1990s. And “what difference does it make?” Just ask the families of those coming back in coffins.
It seems from the post that you’re pushing for a solid Constitutionally obedient American for President, instead of these Socialist radicals and foreign sympathizers.
I do not deny that we need a few more socialist qualities within our government. For example, health care. The countries with the most successful health care systems typically have a one-payer system set up (no, not all countries, but the most successful). Call it socialism if you want. I call it common sense.
I’m actually surprised you didn’t provide a list for Mr. Obama. There’s plenty more.
He was personally involved in helping to create the housing market crash of 2008. As a ‘community organizer’, he organized ACORN mobs to storm into bank buildings and harass them for not providing loans to people of color who could not qualify for loans. As an ACORN lawyer, he personally sued Citibank, repeatedly, to force them to give bad loans to people who could not qualify. His job was to organize the ‘bottom up’ activities, to which the Clinton Admin responded by forcing the banks to give bad loans en masse.
Obama’s close association with enemies of the USA include a trip to Kenya in 2006 to lend his prestige to the political campaign of Railia Odinga, a Marxist thug who had promised he would impose Sharia law on Kenya if he won the election. After Odinga lost, his supporters went on a Christian-killing spree. One would think that Obama’s efforts on this thug’s behalf just two years before his own election run would have been an important consideration but US media worked hard to say nothing about Obama’s past.
Regarding his eligibility for office – both Obama and McCain were challenged. The Senate, as well as Federal Court, confirmed McCain is a Natural Born Citizen under the legal definition – born to US Citizens under US Jurisdiction. Barack Obama could not qualify due to his Father, a British subject, so the DNC provided him with teams of lawyers to fight off all attempts to legally resolve the matter. This began well in advance of the 2008 election. That effort to block confirmation was a clear warning to Americans paying attention.
Mr. Obama’s frequent repetition of Communist ideological agendas such as wealth redistribution, illegal under the US Constitution, was also a warning to Americans. His hatred for the principles of capitalism that had made Detroit (for example) one of the most prosperous cities in the world was a warning that he would (and has) impose Socialist national policies mimicking those that brought Detroit to ruin in the past 30 years.
Some Americans were fooled by Obama’s words, pre-election, in which he eloquently and correctly spelled out the key problems Americans face. For example, the nation-destroying national debt:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficit either now or in the future.” – President Barack Obama, September 9th, 2009
Now, Mr. Obama scolds Republicans who try to stop him from multiplying the debt, often by illegal executive order rather than the Constitutional processes of governance.
We were warned, well in advance, of the Socialist Ideologue who swore to “fundamentally transform” the USA. Pity those who cast their votes to help him do it.
“And then there is Obama”….
O…M…G! I was a mortgage banker from 1998 to 2005 and still followed along after I left the industry. I left because of the fraud all snowballing from Bush’s deregulation of banks – I no longer wanted to be a part of all the illegal activity that was going on – and I was making some serious cash, too. I saw the collapse coming years before it happened and Obama had nothing to do with the collapse. That’s all on Bush, Wall Street and the rest of the ilk. And I do hold Bill Clinton partially responsible for initiating this be repealing the Glass-Steagall act. I still cannot fathom why he would do such an idiotic thing.
ACORN was a pain-in-the-ass. Had good intentions, but totally screwed up. Obama had some interactions with ACORN but nothing like you mentioned. Absolutely nothing of the sort.
The rest of the stuff is all Obama-hater-conspiracy-theory site b.s. and I’m not even going to touch on it.
You seem to have missed the huge fight in Congress as Bush and the Republicans tried to stop the Democrats’ scheme to crash the housing market. Democrats fought back valiantly and eventually triggered the scheme.
Shocking Video Unearthed: Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis
Mr. Obama, as I pointed out, personally trained the ACORN mobs to storm the banks and bully them into making bad loans. As an ACORN lawyer, he personally sued Citibank multiple times to force them to make bad loans. Yes, he was deeply involved in setting up he scheme.

That was the “bottom up” part. Then came the “top down” part:

Here’s the whole story of how the Democrats set up the scheme.
Housing Bubble, Financial Crisis – What Happened, Who is Responsible
Lenders were set up for a fall by Democrat bullying, Republicans tried to stop it.
By the way, they’re doing the same with student loans now. They’re organizing Occupy just as Obama used to organize ACORN to be the on-the-streets bullying mob. Once they’ve got the right setup, they’ll trigger that one, as well.
Mr. Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, came from the Board of Directors of Freddie Mac, one of the crooked agencies involved in setting up the crash. Emanuel and the other directors bilked investors by lying about earnings (much like the crooks at Enron did) and pocketed the loot. The money that bailed out his corporation also kept him out of prison so he could go work for Mr. Obama and the rest of the criminals who had set up the plot in the first place.
I do hope you’ll allow the evidence I’ve posted to become visible. I am always happy to back my assertions with reference material and I enjoy an honest, spirited discussion.
It’s all visible. I just haven’t had the time to go through everything.
Regarding health care – bankrupting the nation is not common sense. Forcing people out of the health care plans they like into much more expensive plans is not, either. Neither is forcing doctors out of business or building expensive new bureaucracies to ‘manage’ the total Charlie Foxtrot of government-run health care.
Common sense does not include a no-bid contract to an incompetent company to build the website, for $650 million of taxpayer money, then adding more to price tag because it was so badly done in the first place. That’s called “pillaging”.
Common sense suggests that if the politically well-connected folks are getting waivers allowing them to escape this government-run boondoggle, then the folks in charge KNOW it is a bad thing. If it weren’t those folks would be begging to be included in the system.

Also: Their generous “cadillac” insurance plans were exempted from being taxed until 2018
Common sense leads us to understand that Mr. Gruber spoke honestly when pointing out that the bill was written to be so convoluted that nobody could understand it, so that the “Stupid American Voters” would vote for it, as Nancy Pelosi insisted they must in order to find out what’s in it. Yeah, it takes a pretty special kind of stupid to fall for that.
If this government-run health care plan were so wonderful, Government would not have to threaten to penalize us for refusing to sing onto it.
