Bush lays out his immigration plan ... in Spanish - CNNPolitics.com

I had no idea that Bush wife was Hispanic, until a few years ago and his kids are obviously white Hispanic.



His interview was very intriguing and I believe his appeal will resonate with Hispanic voters. I think that voting bloc would support him more than any other Republican nominee, because he would garner more trust, for the right or wrong reason, doesn't matter.

I think Bush is the Republicans best bet at winning the Hispanic vote, but would he be a double edge sword and isolate the base because of his family?

Of course he can. Anyone who wins the nomination can.
Relatively speaking he has a much greater chance than Trump.
Jeb is a geniunely good guy for lack of a better term. He is positive for the most part and does not get consumed by the petty. He would make a terrible reality TV star which may make him a great leader.

Though I do not want the Bush or Clinton dynasties to continue ( I prefer a third party to reshape the political process in this country) if Hillary or Jeb win it will jus be U.S. politics as usual.

Once he gets past the GOP nomination, all the conservatives who basically call him a race traitor now will unite behind him as their savior. Watch.

No and that's why the Left wants him to win the nomination, bush is just a democrat trying to hide as a republican.

No. I will stay home and so will many others. He's no better than Hillary. Sure the media will do their job ls again if he's POTUS but he'd be another establishment punk

It wont happen, the Republican party is too divided to get behind one candidate.

So, you think they'd just stay home and let Hillary to waltz right into the White House? I find that hard to believe, considering how much she is hated by the righties.

He won't isolate the base because of his family. He will isolate the base because no one believes he'll do border security first. Look at all the big money he's getting from the donors who want cheap labor.

There aren't enough legal Hispanic voters to make up the difference from all of the non-Hispanics that would stay home.

How did Obama get elected twice? Republicans haven't even come close to getting behind a candidate in the last two elections. Look at how many candidates are running on the Republican ticket, it shows how divided they are and it will take someone better than Bush to unite them.
