    MIAMI — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is no longer interested in buying the Miami Marlins and has ended his pursuit of the team, a person close to the negotiations said Tuesday.

    Former Florida governor and Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized President Donald Trump for “saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand.” Bush made the criticism during an interview that aired Sunday with WFOR’s Jim DeFede. “He hasn’t shifted to being President in the way that people are used to, and I think that’s the problem,” Bush said, adding later: “He’s a distraction in and of himself.”

    Former Florida Gov. and onetime GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Sunday that President Donald Trump is making life a little more difficult for himself. In an interview with Jim DeFede for "Facing South Florida" that aired Sunday, Bush said Trump "should stop saying things that aren't true, that are distractions from the task at hand." "He's a distraction in and of himself," he said. "He's got a lot of work to do, and some of these things — the wiretapping and all of this stuff — is a complete distraction that makes it harder to accomplish the things I...

    A caller just mentioned George W. Bush making a comment on the present political situation in a negative fashion against President Trump AND in defense of the media!!! He is a TRAITOR along with McCain, Graham and other Republicans who are corrupt, bought-off and leading this nation over the edge of the cliff. The caller made an excellent point the Bush had nothing to say about Obama's wrecking ball on the nation. The elites are all on the special lifeboat while the Titana-US is sinking after hitting the immigrationliberalleftistpro-immorality iceberg.

    Jeb Bush said Tuesday he hopes incoming first lady Melania Trump takes her husband’s cellphone away so he can focus on leading the country. The former Florida governor and GOP rival to Donald Trump quipped during a lecture at the William Waldon Cameron Forum in Texas that he hopes "Melania steals his phone," noting the president-elect has been known for tweeting at odd hours of the night. Bush said Tuesday he hopes the president-elect is successful. The two famously sparred during the 2016 Republican presidential primary debates and on the campaign trail before Bush dropped out in February. Others have...
  • Hyper-low Energy Hillary Sleepwalks Through Reaction to NYC Bombing

    Talk about low-energy . . . Hillary Clinton sleepwalked through her reaction to news of the NYC bombing of last night. View the video and catch the somnambulistic former Secretary of State speaking, without conviction, in a dull monotone. Compare and contrast with Donald Trump’s muscular reaction to the same news, in which he said America needed to get “very tough.” Neither candidate had all the details, and leaders should not of course overreact in such situations. Even so, in tough times we want a president to project strength and determination. Trump passed that test. Hillary needs to go back...

    Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson hinted Wednesday that former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush might be considering an endorsement. "I can't say that we haven't had conversations," Johnson said in a Wednesday afternoon conversation on CNN from Cleveland. "But no push on the conversations." Johnson said he has also had conversations with 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney. When asked who initiated the conversations, Johnson replied, "Not me." When asked if the former Florida governor has called him, Johnson added quickly, "I don't want to — I want to protect the innocent.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told supporters at Long Beach City College on Monday afternoon that she's "tired of" Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. [Snip] Clinton called herself "a progressive" who wants to get things done. "We're gonna fight climate change," was among her promises. "I have a plan to install half a billion more solar panels by the end of my first term," she added. ... Clinton made other promises, including "equal pay" for women, an increase in the minimum wage, "affordable" college, college debt forgiveness, adding on to Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act), "ending over-incarceration," expanding abortion...

    Like father, like son: Poppy Bush looked the American people square in the eye and said, "Read my lips: no new taxes." Of course, the former Director of Central Intelligence welshed, because lying is what he did for a living. Now comes his son Jeb, who raised his hand and pledged to support the eventual nominee of the Republican party in the race for president, back when he thought he had a chance. Naturally, the chip off the old block has reneged. In a Facebook post, Bush announced that he could not in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, saying...
  • MSNBC's Katy Tur: 'Veiled Sexism' for Trump To Suggest Hillary Is Low Energy

    If it's sauce for the goose, it's sauce for the Hillary . . . Question for MSNBC's Katy Tur: of all the epithets Donald Trump pinned on his primary opponents, which was the first and arguably most effective? Bet you answered "low-energy," with which Trump of course famously jabbed Jeb. It stuck, and helped drive Jeb from the race. Did people suggest at the time that Trump was hitting below the belt? Nope. So why is it suddenly unfair for Trump to say something very similar about Hillary? On today's Morning Joe, discussing Trump's critique of Hillary, Tur claimed: "there's...

    Sacramento Business Journal ^ | Apr 6, 2016 | Ed Goldman
    A brief news item appeared last week in the Wall Street Journal under the headline, "Jeb Bush Available For Paid Speeches." This struck me as dubious news. The guy — who I suggested in a recent column should team up with Dr. Ben Carson and go on tour as the Ambien Twins — is being hyped as a paid speaker? But not just any paid speaker. As the article pointed out, Bush (and this really had me scratching my head) "reported last year earning nearly $10 million in speaking fees since 2007, receiving as much as $40,000 a speech in...

    Southwest Daily News ^ | March 5, 2016 | The Associated Press
    Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio isn't tipping his hand on the prospect he'll get the endorsement of Jeb Bush before the March 15 primary in their home state of Florida. Winning the state would be crucial for Rubio as he tries to chase down GOP front-runner Donald Trump. Florida will award all of its 99 delegates to the winner of its primary. A former Florida governor, Bush remains an influential figure in state Republican circles. He's also a face of the GOP establishment and an unsuccessful candidate for president this year, making his potential support tricky for Rubio given how...

    "He's hijacked my party," Jeb Bush said of Donald Trump on Tuesday on CBS's "This Morning." "Someone has to take a stand." Bush has deputized himself to take that stand in South Carolina, which will hold its Republican presidential primary Saturday and which is regularly referred to by his supporters as "Bush country." He has brought his mother and brother, the former president, into the state to help with this job -- believing that South Carolina's Republican Party will return logic back to the nominating process. I wouldn't bet on it.

    Jeb Bush has suggested in the past that his blunt, outspoken, 90-year-old mother has strong opinions about Donald Trump. Sitting next to the former first lady in a joint interview with CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, Bush cautioned his mom when she was asked what she really thinks about the real estate titan. "Be careful," Bush murmured to his mom. Barbara Bush initially declined to show her true feelings about Trump, the man who's been tearing into her son for more than six months as someone who's "dumb as a rock" and "low energy." But then she changed her mind....

    My life changed forever when I was a young man on an exchange program in León Guanajuato, Mexico. Across a plaza, I saw a girl. For me, it was love at first sight. From the moment I got to know her, I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. In the years ahead, whether I was changing baby diapers in Caracas, Venezuela, building a business in Miami or leading a state in Tallahassee, Columba has been with me, my best friend in all of life’s challenges and joys. Together, we have built a family...
