Skip to comments.Jeb Bush underwhelms CPAC 2013 attendees (RINO Amnesty Pimp flops at Reagan Dinner)

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush gave the keynote speech Friday night at the Conservative Political Action Conference 2013 Reagan Dinner and received what was described as a respectful standing ovation when introduced, as reported by Twitchy.com.
As he laid out what appeared to be the foundation for a future presidential campaign platform, there was a general lack of enthusiasm that brought some to describe it as tepid.

Haha. Stupid Jeb.
And yet Rand Paul and Marco Rubio placed one and two in their straw poll. And their positions are indistinguishable from Jeb Bush’s on amnesty.
That just means they’ll attack everyone else harder to ensure he’s the ‘only hope for conservatism’.
Bush and Tokyo Rove had a bad run at CPAC this time.
Rove’s donors are starting to have second thoughts about giving to his smear-the-conservative PAC.
This is a good start.
Why on Earth would CPAC choose him to be a Keynote speaker?

Otherwise let the Big Girls do the talking.
Jeb Bush aka Never!
We can hope. But they will go scorched earth on the way down. With full GOP backing. Bank on it.
See my tagline.
Why does CPAC invite RINOs???
The name Bush is not exactly a plus to get elected these days. Ironically Jeb was always the favorite son, far more accomplished than George and always thought by his family and others as the son who would one day be President. His career was severely damaged when his wife got caught shoplifting .Maybe Jeb would be useful to get himself elected to the Senate from Florida. But President? Forget about it.
It's His Turn in 2016.
The GOP apparatchiks are ready to die on that hill, filled with memories of the glory days of Dole 1996.
He'll get every opportunity handed to him between now and then. It might even be enough to stave off the antique hippie chick. :)
Jeb wouldn’t be a bad candidate if his last name wasn’t Bush. He’s not an ideal candidate, but I don’t think anyone is.
I’m not sure why the head of the RNC was invited. Pat Caddell had more important things to say than several of the speakers I saw.
Love Sarah of course and Ted Cruz - didn’t see him using a teleprompter. What a contrast!
Just don’t know how that arrogant twit zero, who has lied, cheated and failed, has the guts to keep up the charade.
Regardless of facts, Jeb appears to be the GOP-e candidate that Reince has selected for us in ‘16.
Apparently, Reince, the GOP-e and the Republican party in general are not too interested in either re-taking the WH or adding significant majorities to both houses of Congress.
So, unless something drastic happens, we shouldn’t expect to be too happy in 2017!
Bush fatigue is still alive. Obama won running against it — twice, 2008 and 2012.
Maybe, if Jeb changes his last name to his wife’s hispanic maiden name, he would stand a better chance — and really show that he is ‘progressive’.
This week his has already been flipflopping on the policies he advocated in the book he wrote. That even beyond Romney’s flipflops.
