When you’re the AP, überlib Republican equals “moderate”.
“Bush, the brother of one president and the son of another, arrived in New Hampshire aware of his challenges in winning over conservative voters who see him as too moderate...
Is he confused? This is Red Hampshire...not a lot of conservatives around here. “
From Jeb’s perspective they are very conservative.
Of course he will.
Arrogant, snobbish, presumptuous, offensive and a know-it-all. Not a good formula for winning voters who aren’t already in the GOPe, Chamber of Commerce camp.
Hope he keeps it up. Fantastic material for ads once the primaries start.
“Bush tells New Hampshire he wont change views to win votes”
“This is what my poll-tested focus group tells me I believe in, and I won’t change views”
Yeah, unfortunately I suspect the RNC has already planned out how to make it look legit that Jebster gets the nod by March of next year. I’ve studied the past two elections and the RNC tweaks it each time making their control over the outcome tighter. Getting McCain nominated was tough, so they moved some primary dates around to make Romney’s ride easier.
At the last convention they changed some more rules and set a calendar that could get even a democrat in an R jersey nominated. Some of the states have thrown a monkey wrench into the plan a little by moving their primaries up, particularly Texas.
It’ll take a miracle for us to not get stuck with Jebster.
I know I’m not voting for him, EVER.
The states have never delegated to the feds, expressly via the Constitution, the specific powers to regulate either immigration or intrastate education. So if Bush really wants to fix broken and unconstitutional federal policy on these issues if he becomes president then he must first do the following.
Bush must work with Congress to propose immigration and education amendments to the Constitution to the states. And if the states choose to ratify Bushs amendments then he and Congress will have the constitutional authority to decide federal policy on these issue if he is elected president.
On the other hand, consider Thomas Jeffersons advice to the states on all issues.
"The States should be left to do whatever acts they can do as well as the General Government." --Thomas Jefferson to John Harvie, 1790.
“only if by moderate you mean liberal”
Yep. Applied to Democrats and Republicrats like JEB is the term “moderate”. Compassionate. Temperate. Reasonable. Nice.
Conservatives are described with terms like “ultra”, “arch”, “die-hard”, “rabid” “venom-dripping” or “neo-Nazi”.
“George Washington intentionally left no heir so that the United States could exist without a hereditary monarch.”
That has to be historical lore. With no children born to the couple Washington was shooting blanks his entire married life. Martha had kids from her prior marriage and was well beyond child bearing years by the time George became President.
On the bright side we get to watch Karl Rove handle another GOP contender.
You’re probably right, it’s likely an outgrowth of his exchanges with Nicola and the Newburgh Conspiracy.
It was just the way I was taught 5 decades ago..
But it’s clear he squelched any idea of his being a monarch and although he did have brothers with children they were never possessed of the idea of asserting any hereditary right.
But my comment about Bush stands. Political families become much more. We need no neo-monarchial aristocracy, hereditary or not.
“Only vote for candidates who will uphold the rule of law and are clearly on the side of the citizens.”
That’s so, like, a hundred years ago dude...
Completely unresponsive and full of himself...
How silly. Jebbie doesn’t have to stray from liberalism to win in Red Hampshire.
And I promise not to vote for him. So I guess we are just about even.
Me neither; I would feel better had I not voted for McPain in 2008, but no Jebbie at all for me.
