  • Jeb: It’s “not important to me” whether there’s a vote on Obama’s SCOTUS nominee

    We began discussing this last night when the tragic news broke about the death of Justice Scalia, and as predicted the question has caught fire already. The President already said he will be nominating someone, but will the Senate take up the question while he is still in office? We have the answer from several presidential candidates already and one of them is Jeb Bush. It's really not that important to him. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) JEB BUSH: I think President Obama is going to submit a nominee and in all likelihood this person will be out of the mainstream and he'll be...

    With a little more than two weeks until the Iowa caucus, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush plans to make a stop in New York next week to talk about foreign affairs and raise money for his campaign. Bush spent less than 48 hours this week in Iowa, making four public campaign appearances and meeting briefly with state GOP lawmakers. He isn't scheduled to be back in the Hawkeye State until closer to the the Jan. 28 Republican presidential debate in Des Moines, scheduled to be hosted by Fox News Channel. -snip- There's a big-dollar fundraiser scheduled in New York on...

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump would "get crushed" by Hillary Clinton, fellow Republican Jeb Bush said Sunday. "Donald Trump, I don't believe, is going to be the party's nominee," Bush told "Fox News Sunday." "And if he is, he's going to get crushed by Hillary Clinton. I wanted to point that out."

    Jeb Bush campaigned in two backyards Monday - his own and Donald Trump's - to ask longtime Bush believers to keep the faith in his presidential candidacy. At a Hialeah rally and a West Palm Beach speech, the former Florida governor made no reference to his stagnant poll numbers, which have him trailing several rivals even in his home state. -snip- Trump's name had drawn jeers from the largely Hispanic Hialeah crowd. -snip- "I'm very optimistic about New Hampshire," Bush insisted to reporters in Spanish. "It's already my second home." When another Spanish-language journalist asked Bush if he might drop...

    Tampa Tribune ^ | 12/26/15 | Joe Henderson
    Jeb! Bush spent about n hour recently with the editorial board of The Tampa Tribune, responding in depth to questions about a wide range of policies he would push if he is elected president of the United States. He showed a clear command of the things he would face as commander in chief, speaking confidently and sounding much like a candidate who expects to sit in the Oval Office a little more than a year from now. He even said at one point, “I want a guy (in office) who understands the issues.” That was a clear slap at Donald...

    Washington Times ^ | 12/24/15 | S.A. Miller
    After starting 2015 as the presumptive front-runner with a huge bankroll, Jeb Bush has to be ending the year wondering what went wrong with his presidential campaign, what happened to his Republican Party and where all his money went. Mr. Bush and his super PAC burned through more than half of the $133 million they raised in the first three quarters this year. The return on that investment has been a drop in polls from about 15 percent when he entered the race in June to about 4 percent in recent surveys. "He has not been a great candidate and...

    "If you want someone who can fix the damn things that exist in this country, I am your guy, and I don't think thats low-energy." Jeb Bush says he doesn't care about Donald Trump calling him "low-energy," and cited a 16-hour work day as evidence of his energy levels. "I don't care about, I don't care about that," the former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate said on the show Wall Street Week over the weekend. "I work 16-hour days. My wife doesn't care about that, she could think of a lot worse thing to say..."

    During a Sunday interview with CBS's John Dickerson, Jeb Bush reiterated his claim that he prefers not being the front-runner Republican presidential candidate. "I feel much better back here," Bush told the "Face the Nation” host. "I've always thought that there was going to be a high expectation for me. I totally get it."
  • Jeb calls Trump 'a jerk' ..., the day after [Trump] said ex-Florida governor was 'dumb as a rock'

    After Jeb Bush finally delivered a strong debate performance by repeatedly taking the fight to front-runner Donald Trump in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the war of words continued over the weekend. During a town hall with New Hampshire voters in Contoocook on Saturday, Bush responded to a question by saying: 'Just one other thing -- I gotta get this off my chest -- Donald Trump is a jerk.' That remark came after Trump went after Bush on Twitter on Friday night by saying that the former Florida governor was 'dumb as a rock' and that the 'last thing our country...

    Jeb Bush is promising his donors that he'll get better at debating - and he's urging any "nervous Nellies" among his supporters to "chill out" as he embarks on a reboot of his campaign. "I'm going to win New Hampshire, I just feel it," Bush told donors on a conference call Wednesday, phoning in from his campaign bus in between stops in the Granite State. "I know in my heart that we're on the right track," he added, according to an audio recording of the call obtained by NBC News. But Bush also acknowledged the drubbing he's taken in the...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is reportedly preparing a relaunch of his 2016 GOP presidential campaign message. Bush is launching a "Jeb Can Fix It" tour on Monday in Florida, according to Reuters, in coordination with a new e-book detailing his time as governor. The news service reported Monday that Bush is starting his 2016 reinvention with speech aimed at presenting himself as a problem-solver. The remarks will be a "rejection of the 'competing pessimisms' created in the [President] Obama era in favor of leadership that solves problems," a campaign aide told Reuters. Bush's new 730-page e-book, "Reply All," compiles...

    HOUSTON — Right to Rise USA, the super PAC supporting former Florida governor Jeb Bush's campaign for president, is considering deploying ground staff to key states after focusing most heavily on running television ads so far. It's a notable strategic consideration that comes as Bush's campaign for the Republican presidential nomination has struggled to gain traction in early-voting states and as it makes moves to curtail costs in what began as a sprawling operation.

    Three generations of the most famous family in Texas politics are planning to descend on Houston in the coming days to rally with major donors to Jeb Bush's presidential campaign — and try to raise more money for the former Florida governor. The weekend gathering, once billed as a "special appreciation event" for Jeb Bush's biggest financial backers, comes at a precarious time for his White House hopes. His campaign announced Friday it was making significant cutbacks, reportedly reducing its payroll by 40 percent, trimming travel costs by 20 percent and scaling back 45 percent on some other costs. Jeb...
  • Jeb Bush’s PAC Erases Carly Fiorina From GOP Race

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 12, 2015 | Neil Munro
    A new Internet-ad by Jeb Bush’s independent PAC erases fourth-place challenger Carly Fiorina from the GOP’s 2016 line-up. The 15-second ad shows Bush’s eight male rivals — Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Carson, etc. — but noticeably excludes the one woman in the race. That’s unexpected, because Fiorina currently leads fifth-place Bush, 8.9 percent to 7.1 percent, in RCP’s average of primary polls, following Fiorina’s highly rated performance in the GOP’s second debate. “Maybe Jeb is just trying to forget the last debate?,” said Sarah Isgur Flores, Fiorina’s deputy campaign manager. “Or maybe they can’t read New Hampshire...

    Presidential candidate Jeb Bush made an eyebrow-raising comment in the wake of the Oregon school massacre -- saying "stuff happens" in response to a discussion about gun violence. Bush called the shooting in Oregon "heartbreaking," and said he also had challenges that he faced during his tenure as governor of Florida. "Look stuff happens, there's always a crisis and the impulse is always to do something and it's not always the right thing to do," Bush said at the Conservative Leadership Project in Greenville, South Carolina, referring to taking away rights.

    The Boston Herald ^ | September 26, 2015 | Joe Battenfield
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has quietly recruited a high-powered team of Bay State boosters, including former Gov. William F. Weld, who hosted a private fundraiser this month, the Herald has learned. Weld, a sometimes controversial figure in the GOP who played a leading role for Gov. Charlie Baker’s 2014 campaign, introduced Bush at a Sept. 9 
fundraiser at the Lenox Hotel and donated $2,000 to Bush’s Right to Rise super PAC back in April. The Bush campaign did not publicize the Boston fundraiser or Weld’s support, but the former governor is expected to formally endorse Bush in the coming...

    Texas Tribune ^ | 9/21/15 | Patrick Svitek
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush used a speech here Monday before Hispanic business leaders to chide his party over its attitude toward immigration, drawing not-so-subtle contrasts between himself and bomb-throwing billionaire Donald Trump. "This apparently is somewhat out of the mainstream temporarily in my party, but it isn't really," Bush told the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's national convention. "A great majority of Republican believe in immigration reform." Bush, who had hardly started speaking before being interrupted by protesters, only said Trump's name once, but clearly had the GOP foe on his mind. The real estate mogul's rants against illegal...
  • Jeb, at Low Ebb, Should Unweave his Web

    One of the few things Jeb Bush is right about is his obvious belief that Donald Trump is a menace. Fine. If Bush really believes that, and if he really wants to do a great service to our country, then the former Florida governor should take one bold step to suck the (hot) air from Trump’s balloon: Withdraw from the presidential race. If Jeb Bush withdraws, a hy-u-uuge portion of the rationale for Trump’s candidacy will be withdrawn as well. Trump is soaring in polls for four main reasons. First, because he talks tough, in plain language. Second, because he...

    Jeb Bush's competitors for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination are going to fairly extraordinary lengths to earn media coverage - lighting their phones on fire, taking a chainsaw to the tax code, using an assault rifle to cook bacon (seriously.) Bush, though, is taking the more conventional route: The former Florida governor is raising money at a record-breaking clip, he's campaigning hard in early primary and caucus states, and he's gradually rolling out a robust policy platform. It's a notably circumspect approach to what has become, thanks largely to Donald Trump's combustible candidacy, a roller-coaster of a primary season. But...
