Skip to comments.Jeb Bush: 'I'm a conservative' (Running for president?)
Posted on 11/19/2013 10:08:03 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush predicted Monday night Congress would pass a series of immigration bills next year and touted his conservative credentials as he talked about his thought process on a potential 2016 presidential bid.
In a wide-ranging, onstage interview at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Bush said he didn't necessarily agree with his mother, who joked there have been "enough Bushes" in the White House.
The Spanish-speaking former governor also took a slight dig at another potential 2016 contender, Sen. Ted Cruz, for his Spanish language skills.
'I'm a conservative'
At one point in the discussion, moderated by Fordham law professor Thane Rosenbaum, Bush was asked whether the tea party could coexist with moderates like himself and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Feigning shock that he was called a moderate, Bush argued that his style may be different but he's still a conservative at heart....

You mean they.
I’m a flying pig.
>> Bush argued that his style may be different but he’s still a conservative at heart...
Jeb, buddy — don’t believe everything your father and brother tell you. Their judgment has been proven faulty.
Someone close to Jeb should clue him in. No one with the surname Bush will be elected president for the foreseeable future. No one.
This would save Jeb a lot of time and money.
I’m a conservative. I measure everything against that. Jeb Bush is not a conservative.
He made it a point to go after Brewer in Arizona for trying to enforce immigration law.
I think he's another one who doesn't like the "tea party" (which is the GOP rank and file) except when he's running for office.
Black Agnes: I’m the Queen of England!
Hey, I said it, it must be true!
He’s sincerely, severely conservative.
Along with Christie, Ryan, and every other RINO possibility........
Gosh...not another Amnesty Liberal...
Yesterday it was all the Scott Walker Amnesty Liberal nonsense...now its Jose Boosh III.
Amnesty Liberal candidates keep the conservative base home
“I’m a conservative”
You let Terri die. You are a loathsome scoundrel.

He’s “temperate” “pragmatic” “common sense”
And Will Muschamp is a good coach.
“severely compassionate conservative”
Bush argued that his style may be different but he’s still a conservative at heart....
That depends upon how you perceive the scale, thus he needs
to explain what scale he is using.
I could be the Walrus, I’d still have to bum rides off of people.
Compared to who?
BO? Likely. Hillary? The jury is still out.
No Jeb, you are not a conservative.
That’s my thinking as well. Lots of RINOs to tear each other apart and a couple of good conservatives for us to put our weight behind.
I’d like to see conservative candidates run a different kind of race. They should agree to compete honestly but one should step aside at a certain agreed upon point and throw their weight behind the other conservative. Maybe even an open agreement to pick the other for VP or a cabinet post.
No Jeb! Not just no, HELL NO!
Jeb Bush pushes Common Core and Amnesty. He wants the “el heffe” society. He is anything but conservative.
John Hughes was great.
Jed buddy, don’t care. Call yourself a alien from the tenth planet, it is all the same to me and just as likely.
Oh look! I have sparkly unicorns flying out my butt.
Jeb’s no conservative and can go to hell!
Inability to recognize the Enemy.
The Bush Family is probably the most politically tone deaf family in politics...ever.
“Oh look! I have sparkly unicorns flying out my butt. “
Are they dropping Skittles?
Or is it Paxil now?
Yeah, right! I'm Antonio Gramsci!
If Cruz runs, I hope we can get behind him early; if he doesn't, I hope someone else can pick up the mantle, rally the base (us) while the pack of RINO's keep running, hoping the media will win each one of them the nomination.
Would be nice to see the RINOs all tear each other apart, for once.
All these GoPe crats are party crats.
They do zero serious journalism of sweat and blood when it comes to issues of investigating abortion or illegal immigration.
They are just granted by the communist media a chocolate medal of being hawk conservatives while being neither.
This is affirmative action in the GoPe.
Yeah. And I'm freakin' Batman.
Bush said he didn’t necessarily agree with his mother, who joked there have been “enough Bushes” in the White House.
For once - I agree with Barbara. Who very well may be the most liberal Bush there is.
On the other hand unless someone the caliber of Cruz runs, I guess any RINO will do.
Get a real job, Jeb. No one wants another Bush in the White House.
“Nnnnnnaw” - Uncle Si
Ah yes, a man can dream.
Jeb Bush reminds me of Prince Charles. They are both rich, useless, and out of touch members of a royal family.
