What this fool doesn't get is that we are not a nation of "illegal" so-called immigrants. No way should these lawbreakers be rewarded with amnesty and they aren't in the shadows they out front and in your face with their demands. As you said, we have millions of Americans out of work so it makes no sense to allow these illegals to remain here and continue to hold these jobs that Americans need. When do these amnesties end and no it's not reform. It would still be against the law to come here illegally.

I suspect a hurdle Jeb will have to clear sooner or later will be his relationship with Orlando Bosch, a man labeled an "unrepentant terrorist" by former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh .

If you are competing with illegal immigrants for jobs, you have made some seriously bad life choices. If an American citizen born with all the privileges and access to free public education that it comes with is whining about the difficulty of finding work as a day laborer, crop picker, dishwasher or lawn mower it is hard to feel bad for them. If an immigrant from a third world country with no education can steal your job, that is your fault.

I totally disagree with you on this. I am not a supporter, I think his name would hurt him in a general election and I wish he would just continue to enjoy a life removed from politics, but he will win a few states and probably some cauuses. He might carry Fl, although Rubio is well thought of so I have heard. Bush's stand on immigration will hurt him. He is too pro immegration. We have to have to make some consolations, but I think he goes too far. My guess, anyone who makes a statement as strong as yours probably will not be supporting any
Republican.

Rewtoks: Are you saying, immgrants from Mexico or anywhere else do not have free education in their country? If you are, boy do you have your head in the sand?

rcp shows Hilary over Paul by an average of 8.5%. I am surprised it shows HC over Bush by 8.9%.
It varies all over the place and which polls you are watching. Actually a few days or maybe a week ago, there were a couple of R that were running neck and neck with her. Also remember when taking these polls, you have only 1 D and several Rs, so one would expect her to be in the lead. You have people who support one R and others supporting another. RCP does represent a cross section, but this still doesn't really change the fact there are serveral verses 1. I imagine we will see a difference in the polls starting next week.

I don't see Bush getting in it, unless Rubio falters from the New World Order narrative.

Jeb will be the Republican nominee. And Hillary will win the general election in an electoral landslide.

That would be the Democrats perfect scenario.
It is sad when Hillary beats you beyond the margin of error, with the dirt in her baggage.
Now Rand. He actually leads her in 3 states that went for Obama. So, it must have been Mitt and that Progressive Republican mentality, they tried to relabel Conservative for the cameras, that no one bought.
A history of Conservative principals, have the two most conservative, matching the best in a Hillary battle.

I'm sure you do pray it is Bush. He will be the easiest for Hillary to beat. The name BUSH alone, is TOXIC.

Wrong, Americans were displaced on their jobs by illegal aliens only because they work for less. Americans working blue-collared jobs such as construction and landscaping were not poor choices. They use to make a liveable wage at it. Most illegal aliens aren't picking crops and by making themselves available as day laborers they are taking away construction jobs from Americans. No, it is the fault of the employers who hire them and also these illegal aliens for coming here illegally offering to work for less. By the way, they aren't "immigrants". What part of we and every other country in the world has immigration laws aren't you getting?

It's not that Jeb is pro-immigration it is that he is pro-illegal immigration and that will hurt him with conservatives and other sensible voters.
