  • Jeb Bush, 2016’s Gay-Friendly Republican

    BuzzFeed ^ | 02/26/2015 | Mckay Coppins
    Shortly after the 2012 election ended, David Kochel, the top-flight Iowa Republican strategist who had run Mitt Romney’s campaign in the state, decided to stop keeping his opinion of marriage equality to himself. He had spent years helping presidential candidates court the conservative Christian voters who dominated Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses, but he had grown increasingly convinced that his party was on the wrong side of the marriage debate, both morally and politically. With the campaign over, Kochel — who declined to comment for this story — began turning up at gatherings for pro-gay Republicans, calling on the GOP to modernize...

    According to the dominant media narrative, Jeb Bush runs to the center. But history tells a different story Election Day 2016 is just a bit less than two years away, so you’ve got more than enough time to prepare. But if you’re not numb to it already, get used to this phrase, because you’re going to hear it constantly in the weeks and months to come: “Jeb Bush, the moderate former governor of Florida…” In terms of convenient but factually dubious crutches that will be leaned on constantly by the horse-race media, the “Bush-the-moderate” narrative is poised to blow its...

Jeb Bush, was detained and fined by federal customs officials for misrepresenting the amount of clothing and jewelry she had bought while on a solo five-day shopping spree in Paris. The incident left the Florida first lady deeply mortified and her husband politically chagrined. Jeb Bush said the first lady had misled customs officials because she...

    Any candidate showing signs of being a "will-o-the-wisp" flip-flopper will not be the type to be dependable that can be counted on. Watch 'em close. An earlier Washington Examiner editorial positioned Republican presidential probable candidate and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush as a not very conservative office seeker based on his talk about acts of love. This was based on a CNN interview with Dana Davidsen with Bush at College Station, Texas, on a Sunday Town Hall event to honor the elder GHW Bush’s 25th presidential anniversary. “Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States...

    I am quite baffled that some folks think Jeb Bush is an establishment candidate and not a true conservative. Granted, the former Florida governor's support for the Common Core educational initiative and immigration reform might give that impression. But the truth is, Jeb Bush governed Florida as a strong conservative, and he has long identified, even before becoming governor, with the pro-growth, conservative ideas championed by the likes of Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp. In my mind, the 2016 election will not be about ideology, it will be about finding solutions to America's problems. Jeb is a solutions guy who...

    A top Jeb Bush ally said that Jeb Bush will not back down on his support for comprehensive amnesty legislation and is willing to win or lose the GOP nomination based on the issue. On Thursday, Clint Bolick, who co-wrote Immigration Wars with the former Florida governor, said Bush “is either going to win or lose with a mandate on immigration.” “He’s not going to shift his position on this,”Bolick told MSNBC’s Jose Diaz Balart. “He believes in this with his absolute heart and soul.”

    On the same Chicago trip where he gave his “I am my own man” foreign policy speech, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was set to raise “north of $4 million.” That’s in one day. Jeb Bush’s team denied reports they planned to raise $100 million in the first quarter to scare other potential candidates out of the 2016 Republican primaries. But there is no denying that they are raising money and snapping up staff at a fevered clip. They seem to have only gathered steam since muscling Mitt Romney out of the presidential race.

    A conservative group is launching a campaign calling former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) “unelectable” because he gave presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton an award in 2013. In the minds of ForAmerica, a conservative group founded by Brent Bozell, the president of the Media Research Center, that one appearance is enough to disqualify him from a 2016 bid entirely. “Anytime Jeb calls Hillary 'Obama 2.0,' any criticism he makes of her awful record as Secretary of State, any time he shows how much of an extremist she is on the issues, will be completely dismissed when she reminds everyone that he...

    On Wednesday, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush reiterated that immigration reform is “hugely important” for America even though the country’s middle class, as Bush acknowledged, is getting more squeezed. “Immigration reform for our country is so hugely important. Race is not a national identifier in this country. We’re 34 flavors. We’re as diverse as diverse can get,” Bush said during a question-and-answer session after his foreign policy address at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “And that is a huge strength looking over the horizon right now, where multiculturalism kind of creates pockets of despair in Europe in many cases.”...

    Scott Walker, the little-known governor of Wisconsin, is emerging as the main challenger to Jeb Bush in the race to become the Republicans' 2016 presidential candidate. While Mr Bush is raising tens of millions of dollars and attracting huge media attention across the country, polls indicate a quiet momentum is building for the more conservative Mr Walker. The 47-year-old governor is trailing Mr Bush by just a few points in the polls in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina - the three early voting states that will shape the course of the Republican primary election. While the 62-year-old Mr Bush,...

    I need to mention a fact that many freepers will find painful and upsetting. In the 20th Century, Country Club Republicans had greater influence in selecting Republican nominees for President, than grassroots Republicans. There are only 2 notable exceptions when the establishment candidate did not win - 1964 and 1980. In 1964, the Republican establishment was deeply divided. Three Republican candidates from extremely wealthy, Old Money, WASP families were on the ballot. They were Governor Nelson Rockefeller from New York, Governor William Scranton from Pennsylvania, and former Senator Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. from Massachusetts. Lodge did not formally enter the...

Whether it’s attempting to make something out of his lack of a college sheepskin or dreaming up comments to make about cheese, the time honored practice of trying to tear down Republican contenders is well underway. Unfortunately for the talking heads, poll numbers are part and parcel of their business, and as NBC’s First Reads is forced to admit, the Scott Walker train looks to be picking up a head of steam....

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who is hands down the conservative frontrunner in the 2016 Republican presidential primary race, has quickly jumped out in front of all of the other potential Republican presidential candidates in fundraising and grassroots outreach. But before Bush can claim the 2016 GOP nomination for president, Jeb first needs to try to win over the Republican conservative base. Grassroots conservatives do not want Bush as the GOP nominee for president because they feel that he is too soft on immigration reform, as well as being the most outspoken supporter and promoter of national education standards, better...

Ted Cruz has about the same odds of winning the party’s nomination as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, The Washington Post reported. The unnamed strategist divided the GOP race for 2016 into "four lanes" — establishment, tea party, social conservative and libertarian, according to the newspaper. Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are the leading candidates in establishment, the largest lane, while former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is battling it out with retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum...

    Jeb Bush was preparing to release the emails he sent and received as Florida governor when he was excoriated by a letter-writer to The Miami Herald. The headline: “Don’t trust Jeb Bush with the power of the presidency.” The subject of many of the emails was Terri Schiavo. The letter-writer was her husband, Michael. Bush’s effort to stop Michael Schiavo from removing his brain-damaged wife’s feeding tube was a defining moment of Bush’s time in office. Bush, a devout Catholic, sided with Terri Schiavo’s parents in the end-of-life dispute and reached for unprecedented authority to intervene. Michael Schiavo said his...

    The stream of requests to the White House from Jeb Bush, a young but well-connected Republican leader in South Florida, ranged from the weighty and urgent to the parochial and mundane. In 1985, he sent an emotional letter pressing his father, Vice President George Bush, to investigate the detention of Cuban children in Texas, asking, “Shouldn’t there be some compassion?” (The vice president’s reply: “Heartbreaking.”) In 1989, after his father became president, Mr. Bush offered his recommendation for the next Supreme Court opening.

Having signed it, he should be presumed to have supported, in any case. Will this news harm Walker’s chances of becoming the GOP presidential nominee? Standing alone, it shouldn’t. It’s one thing to sign a non-bonding resolution passed by the legislature in favor of “greater opportunity” for legal residency. It’s quite...

It deals with the issue of “comprehensive immigration reform” and has less to do with whether or not Bush fundamentally agrees with Barack Obama on immigration (the general consensus there is that he does) and more to do with what this says about the candidate’s fundamental view of the American worker. The title is, The Peasants Are Revolting, So Let’s Get New Ones. It’s a great, humorous header, but the...

    Based on historical patterns, the next president is likely to be a GenXer. This is not good news for the many baby boomers running, or thinking about running, in 2016. When voters decide it is time to move the presidency on to the next generation, they keep electing presidents in that next generation, or they go on to the one that follows. They do not go back. Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were from the baby boomer generation. Barack Obama is from the Gen X generation (those born 1961 to 1981). If the pattern holds, the next president will...

    With the Senate tied in knots over a House-passed bill that would fund the Department of Homeland Security while simultaneously blocking President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a nearly two-year-old video was released that shows leading GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush explicitly contradicting a key Republican position on providing illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. First reported by CNN, the video shows Bush at an appearance at an event sponsored by the Hispanic Leadership Network in April 2013. Bush was asked about his position on a Senate immigration reform bill and, specifically, on offering citizenship to people brought to the...

    After the confab with Mitt Romney and Romney's decision to pull out, it is safe to say that Jeb Bush has been anointed by the powers that be in the Republican Establishment as the 2016 nominee for President of the United States. This is just more confirmation of the sad state of Uniparty politics in this nation, where the illusion of two different parties with major difference is being exposed to the light of day. Consider some of the big issues of today. AMNESTY When he announced executive amnesty Barack Obama, the reputed leftist, was helping the Chamber of Commerce-business...

    Jeb Bush supports amnesty for illegal immigrants. According to CNN this comes as a shock to conservatives. Which conservatives are shocked by Bush’s desire to provide amnesty to illegals isn’t exactly clear. Is anyone surprised that Jeb Bush supports giving the children of illegals citizenship? Surely no one is surprised that Bush doesn’t believe we can control the border. Admittedly it’s a little odd that he wants to repopulate Detroit with illegals. It’s telling that not even illegals will move to Detroit, despite the abundance of abandoned free housing. CNN obviously wants to create a sensational story by alleging that...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is to deliver what aides call an “optimistic, conservative vision for the future” in his first unpaid speech since declaring his interest in a bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. […] Wednesday’s speech is the first in a series of stops his aides call his “Right to Rise” tour, borrowing from his economic mantra and the name of the political action committee he formed in December. Bush’s speech, aides said, is aimed at underscoring his desire to reinvigorate the middle class, which he argues has languished despite the ongoing economic recovery. Conservative economic policies,...

    Former Florida Governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush reportedly “never forgave” Mitt Romney for moving to the right on illegal immigration, which was perhaps one of the only issues where Romney was somewhat in line with conservatives. Romney announced on Friday that he would not make a third run for the White House, and NBC’s Chuck Todd said Romney was Jeb Bush’s preferred candidate in 2007 before Romney flipped on immigration. Todd added that “some of the interest in the race was personal” Jeb Bush “never forgave” Romney for using “immigration as a wedge issue against McCain.”

    A new poll suggests that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush stands to gain the most from Mitt Romney’s decision not to run for president for the third time. A Fox News poll released Thursday before Mr. Romney’s decision was announced found that Mr. Bush was the second choice of many who favored Mr. Romney, and would lead the field in his absence. Although Mr. Romney would have led the field with 21% of Republicans surveyed by Fox, the poll found that in his absence Mr. Bush rose to No. 1 spot with 15%, followed by Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee...

    CLEARWATER, Fla.—Sitting recently on his brick back patio here, Michael Schiavo called Jeb Bush a vindictive, untrustworthy coward. For years, the self-described “average Joe” felt harassed, targeted and tormented by the most important person in the state. “It was a living hell,” he said, “and I blame him.” Michael Schiavo was the husband of Terri Schiavo, the brain-dead woman from the Tampa Bay area who ended up at the center of one of the most contentious, drawn-out conflicts in the history of America’s culture wars. The fight over her death lasted almost a decade. It started as a private legal...

    Now that Mitt Romney has announced he will not make a third White House run, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is the leader in an early South Carolina poll.
