Jeb is the only candidate we know that has a chance. No candidate is prefect but Jeb is as close to prefect for the Republicans. We all know that putting Cruz or Carson against anyone won't get a red White House. They won't win enough stars on the electorate regardless of how many Republican governors we have. The Democrats have a math advantage and we will see only the more conservative states stay red like the south, Texas and Arizona. You won't bring enough conservatives to the polls in the swing states.

Cruz tried to warn Americans about the financial danger of Obamacare and turns out he was right. Plus, he has more class than most of the 2016 candidates.

I don't mind him trying to vote against Obamacare but tying it to the furloughs, C'mon man. And this is the guy we want in the White House?
The House started off by funding the Government and defunding Obamacare.

It next went to the Senate Democrats who said they would not negotiate, they would not compromise and voted it down.

The House then said that they would compromise by finding some middle ground. They said they wouldn't defund Obamacare, but would fund the government and this time "delay" Obamacare for one year in the manner that the President had done for big business.

Approximately a dozen Democrats had publicly called for a delay. The House voted to do that - delay Obamacare.

So, the pertinent and relevant question is - If the Democrats supported delaying Obamacare, why did THEY vote to shut down the government.

As much as the media wants to blame that on Cruz or the Republicans, it simply isn't true. The true reason for the shutdown (which actually doesn't shutdown) was simply a partisan decision made by the White House.

We all know that the President walked into the Republican meeting and said, "I am here to tell you that I will NOT negotiate and I will NOT compromise.

The White House KNEW the plan would benefit them. And it worked because you still believe it was Cruz's fault. Facts show that it wasn't.

But, hey, who cares about facts? Apparently, not many....

They rode Halperin like a stick horse the last few days on Twitter and Facebook. That's the only reason he apologized, if you want to call it an apology.

But, you are right - Cruz is a class act. His response was gracious - as usual.

JEB BUSH: I think illegal immigration ought to be punished by coming out from the shadows, earning legal status over an extended period of time where you pay a fine, where you work, where you donít receive government assistance, where you learn English, where you donít ó where youíre deported if you commit a crime as is the law.

First off they aren't in the shadows they are in our faces and laughing. Earning legal status is punishment? WTH? Oh, and my all time favorite by Jeb is "coming here illegally is an act of love". He'll never get my vote. I'll stay home first.

Fox News set this up deliberately. At least that is the vibe I was getting. Got the same vibe regarding Mitt Romney, which played out to be true - the only electable candidate. For instance, during the primaries, almost every question or conversation on Fox was framed around Mitt in some way. Repetition is a seller.

The fact is, the news media could get behind a homeless person, using all of their mechanisms, to make him look electable. They love the power they hold over the people. And the people pretend there is no power behind the dialogue.



It is called media Projecting.

They have been throwing bush at the wall to see if he sticks for months now, with no success.

Well, they were certainly gushing over him on THe Five - totally sickening. Reminded me of how they treated Romney. Saw a clip of Kelly File tonight, she was so snippy with Ted Cruz and totally respectful and soft with Jeb Bush. Ugh!

She is getting hammered on Twitter and Facebook. LOL!

Yes, that was funny - "act of love". Donald Trump was hilarious in his response to that - “They broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. That statement was a disaster. He’s got to come a long way off that statement.”
