I am a Jeb Bush “Anchor Baby”

Jeb Bush’s bizarre comments about “Asian  anchor babies” that were delivered near the Mexican border on Monday were no doubt of a political nature. Bush was merely trying to react to Donald Trump’s populism which includes a strong nativist streak much like populist movements of yesteryear as well as protectionism, Governor Bush’s record and rhetoric […]


Jeb Bush’s failed legacy in Florida

GOP Presidential candidate Jeb Bush left the Governor’s office over eight years ago, yet his influence continues to dominate the legislative agenda of the state GOP. His views on education have been particularly damaging and each GOP legislator in our state must pass a “Bush litmus test” on education in order to be in the […]


Jeb’s Trump & vets hypocrisy

Jeb Bush claims to have a consistent “conservative” ideology. This week, he attacked Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump for his ridiculous words about Senator John McCain, a former POW in Vietnam. But in Bush’s statement released via Twitter, he rightly indicated that all veterans deserve respect.   Enough with the slanderous attacks. @SenJohnMcCain and all […]

Iraq, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton

Jeb Bush’s mishandling of Megyn Kelly’s Iraq question last week on FOX News followed up by Marco Rubio’s poor answer over the weekend to an identical question. Hillary Clinton’s vote for the authorization that led to the Iraq War might seem like it is largely irrelevant now, but it is not. For those who were […]


Jeb Bush in 2015 : Rusty and still rude

Governor Jeb Bush has always been a politician with a short fuse and a certain observable sense of entitlement. As Governor, Bush conducted himself in a manner that exuded arrogance, self-righteousness and an all-knowing attitude. When reporters challenged him, he would snap in public, When members of the legislature attempted to meet with him on […]
