George P. Bush Urges Immigration Action [amnesty]
NY Times ^ | Jeff Zeleny

Posted on 07/10/2012 12:46:52 PM PDT by kevcol

George P. Bush said on Tuesday that “it’s never too late” for Mitt Romney to take a leadership role in the immigration debate, but he acknowledged Republicans were outflanked by President Obama’s election-year decision to allow hundreds of illegal immigrants to remain in the country without fear of deportation.

“Governor Romney had an opportunity to get in front of the president on the issue,” said Mr. Bush, 36, the son of former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida. “But the president clearly has taken the initiative on it.”

George P. Bush is a different and newer generation of “compassionate conservatism”.

He stands to have a long and illustrious career in positions of honor and prestige, some of which may even be elective in nature.

But the brand is still a little tarnished, going to have to be polished up quite a bit.

seems like this has more to do with the family on his mother’s side.

Is this the one caught with the girl behind the shopping center? (at least he was dated a girl)

On FNF this morning an illegal alien was pushing to be admitted to the bar via amnesty. The key was the immigration lawyer was out of options and was pushing the court of public opinion. It will be interesting to see if the FL bar allows a lie to gain admission into law school will persuade the FL bar.

The last thing the Republican campaigns need this year is a bunch of so-called Republicans running around spouting off about illegal aliens and amnesty programs, and what sort of pandering positions Romney and the party should adopt. Rubio and the Bushes and any others playing this unneeded role do nothing but harm the party’s chances, and that might well be what some of them intend.

And what a ridiculous smile. P’s are some of the most unneeded and unhelpful comments so far this campaign season.

The Dims and the MSM care because they can use remarks from this character who was born into the Bush family to put Romney and other Republicans on the spot concerning the illegal alien/amnesty issues.

"And, Governor Romney, what is your reaction to the recent remarks of George P. Bush....?

Pretty out-of-touch for the Bush’s to be still holding onto this issue, Amnesty.

Illegals should be deported. Period.

If the Unemployment level was at 3% I could understand why some bleeding heart liberal republicans would focus on such an issue.

Out-of-touch!

What nauseating pablum. Are you a bush family member?

But the brand is still a little tarnished, going to have to be polished up quite a bit.

We have over 300M people in this Republic. There are tens of millions of honorable citizens who would make better leaders than any of the rabid Statists that infest the Bush family. Frankly, it's disgusting how people seem to gravitate and view certain political families as "destined" to lead us.

Both bushes were very Statist.

The Bush's desire to see the State as a positive good would indicate their true home would be the Rat party. The Bush's have nothing all in common with our Liberty loving Founders.

The compassionate conservative garbage from the Statist Bush's clearly show that they must have a revulsion to our Constitution and it's foundation of negative rights.

I voted for Bush41 and Bush43. I am so repulsed by that family that if ever a Bush runs again I will make it a point to vote for the RAT.

The best thing that can happen is for people to repudiate and ignore them and their arrogant elitist pronouncements.

Who was that guy four years ago - McCain was it?

He was the leader in the amnesty agenda, even writing the 2007 amnesty bill.

He got all them Hispanices to vote for him overwhelmingly didn’t he? Yeah, pandering to the illegal alien lobby really pays off for Republicans.

The Bushes. McCains, Grahams, Roves - all live in gated communities with security guards and home covenants to ensure that no illegal aliens ever show up around thier homes, save for the lawn care day laborers. It’s of little concern to them that you and I are living in an underwater house next to a drop house of 20 illegals, shopping at the KMart where the announcements are in Spanish, waiting and bleeding for hours in the emergency room while the illegals get their colds treated for free, hoping for a carpenter job now taken by a $10/hr illegal working off the books, and as a final insult being called bigots (Graham) who hate brown people (Rove).

And we have to listen to this rich, snot-nosed pretty boy lecture us about amnesty.

I remember that. You were correct then, and it's still correct.

"P", as the Bush family calls him, is simply the designated next-generation political "star" of the Bush dynasty. They and their fellow elites have arranged a Hispanic demographic transformation of our population and they've calculated that "P" with his mixed-heritage (his mother Columba is Mexican) will be a sure-fire winner. From their perspective you couldn't find a more perfect candidate even if you called central casting.

Like the rest of the Bush family he would be nothing if not for the taxpayer’s pocket to pick. Like ALL the Bush family they make their living brokering deals that involve their connections to government. The only thing I can say good about him is that he is openly supporting Ted Cruz. But that is all I can say about him.

Yeah, you weasel, if Republicans would just out-Hispander Dims by encouraging even more illegal invaders by rewarding those already here things would be just peachy wouldn’t they?

George P. proves at least one thing: the Bushes aren’t getting any smarter through the generations.

I did not say, that George P. Bush was going to go to a high elective position as a REPUBLICAN. Like you, I tend to believe the Bushes would be intellectually more comfortable as Democrats, but a certain streak makes transforming into a full-fledged Democrat unlikely at present. Therefore, the need for polishing.

But family connections, and a certain degree of political correctness, will propel George P. into a number of high-level appointments.

Not really. His features are exactly that of Jeb Bush. His coloration is probably from hanging out on the beach and on golf courses. His mom's coloration isn't much different from Jeb Bush's. When patrician types like the Bushes marry Hispanics, they're usually of 90%-100%* European ancestry. Here's what somewhat with 70% European ancestry looks like, without the tan:

This is Jeb Bush's wife:

There's a bright future in politics for him - in the Democratic Party. Heck, they take fake Indians like Elizabeth Warren, so someone with 5% genuine (Mexican) Indian blood like GPB should have no problem blending in as yet another non-white ethnic politician.

Jeb’s wife is from one of the oldest wealthiest families in Mexico. So is Vicente Fox’s wife and they all pal around together which may give you some idea of why Dubya was always so keen on total amnesty. They are all just one big happy family.

I’ve seen many pictures of George P. Bush all over the internet, from a young kid, to a grown man. No way in the world if he and Jeb Bush are standing side-by-side that anyone would think Bush was his father. Aint happening. He’s always been dark and looks 100% Mexican, and not Mexican of European descent. His grandparents on his mother’s side were migrant workers, not European royalty.

What is sad about the game plan that you suggest, in addition to its complete betrayal of any sense of ongoing ethnic identity--such as the Founding Fathers clearly reflected in their actions, and in the Preamble to the Constitution;--it clearly sets the young man up to make the sort of pronouncements (as referred to in the heading), which no true gentleman would make.

It is not that one should disrespect George P. Bush's mother. Certainly not. But is it proper for the adopted child to seek to alter the family culture--or that of the neighborhood in which one finds oneself? Should not one be grateful for what those who came before achieved; grateful to be accepted in the society created? There is, here, an arrogant insult, perhaps not resulting from a lack of character in the subject Bush, but rather from his mentors, whose superficial approach to questions of heritage has been often observed.

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...
