Six Key Takaways from Jeb Bush’s Presidential Announcement

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]1)  Bush is pandering bigtime to non-English speaking illegal aliens.

Rather than support the unity that comes with a country’s unifying common language of English, Bush came out all but wearing a sombrero, communicating in Spanish, the language of Mexico.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]”As a candidate, I intend to let everyone hear my message, including the many who can express their love of country in a different language,” Bush told his audience.

“Ayúdenos en tener una campaña que les da la bienvenida. Trabajen con nosotros por los valores que compartimos y para un gran futuro que es nuestro para construir para nosotros y nuestros hijos.


Júntense a nuestra causa de oportunidad para todos, a la causa de todos que aman la libertad y a la causa noble de los Estados Unidos de América.”

Whatever that means. My interpretation is that he isn’t backing down for his support of amnesty for illegal aliens. Other than Spanish, he spoke no other foreign languages, which is quite discriminatory if you ask me.

2)  Bush is attempting to channel Reagan, even though his RINO establishment family did everything they could to defeat Reagan in 1976 and 1980. It was George H.W. Bush who called Reagan’s successful economic plan “voodoo economics.”

One couldn’t help but notice Bush stealing from Reagan’s famous “Time for Choosing” campaign speech given for Barry Goldwater. It’s the speech that is credited with launching Reagan’s political career.

“We are 17 months from the time for choosing,” Bush proclaimed.

Bush quoted Reagan again, trying again to justify amnesty for lawbreakers by paraphrasing Reagan:

“In 1971, 8 years before then-candidate Ronald Reagan said that we should stop thinking of our neighbors as foreigners, I was ahead of my time in cross-border outreach.”

Bush forgot to mention that Reagan called amnesty one of his biggest regrets, according to former Reagan AG Edwin Meese, a Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow Emeritus at The Heritage Foundation. Meese contends that Reagan would not repeat the amnesty mistake.

3)  Bush is hiding from the Bush family dynasty name in order to look less establishment.

From the “Jeb!” logo that conveniently leaves out his last name, to his pronouncement that no one “deserves the job” of president, Bush is clearly trying to distance himself from the Bush name.

4)  He is unwilling to harshly attack corrupt Democrat Hillary Clinton. 

Bush barely mentioned Hillary Clinton and it wasn’t exactly a hard-hitting attack on the corrupt, scandal-plagued Democrat:

“Secretary Clinton insists that when the progressive agenda encounters religious beliefs to the contrary those beliefs, quote, “have to be changed.” That’s what she said, and I guess we should at least thank her for the warning.”

As we’ve pointed out before, the Bush political dynasty is known for having a more than cushy relationship with the Clintons, leaving some wondering if Bush would have the backbone to run the kind of tough campaign required to defeat the “win at all costs” Clinton.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]In March, Jeb Bush was asked whether Hillary Clinton should have to turn over the secret computer she was conducting government business on. Bush gave the extremely weak reply, “I don’t know — I don’t know that the laws are.”

George W. Bush, Jeb’s elder brother and former president, referred to Bill Clinton as his “brother from another mother,” as well as referring to Hillary Clinton as his “sister-in-law.”

Additionally, the Bush brother’s father, George H. W. Bush, is so close to Bill Clinton, that the younger George Bush said last year that father Bush, who was roundly defeated by Clinton in the 1992 presidential race, has been a “father figure” to serial woman abuser, Democrat Bill Clinton.

5)  Bush is a big government Republican just like his dad and brother. 

Bush didn’t mentioning cutting anything specific from the leviatian known as the federal government. Nor did he mention any unconstitutional and wasteful bureaucracy he would eliminate (IRS, Department of Education, etc.), but did spend a trememdous amount of time attempting to convince his audience that he could manage big government better than the Democrats do.

In other words, he’ll grow government like his father and brother did, albeit (possibly) at slightly slower rates than Democrats to.

6)  He’s a hypocrite when it comes to “executive experience,” i.e. a governor is mandatory to being a president. 

“As our whole nation has learned since 2008, executive experience is another term for preparation, and there is no substitute for that,” Bush argued.

Of course, this was a shot at the senators in the race, fellow Republicans Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, who have not been governors.

But there’s one little problem. Neither had his father, George H.W. Bush, a former president, when he was elected.

Additionally, as Mark Levin reminded us on Monday, the Bush family supported both Bob Dole and John McCain when they ran for the presidency, two senators with no executive experience.
