Jeb Bush Calls The Federal Government ‘incompetent,’ Foresees GOP Victories In November

February 24, 2010 by  

Jeb Bush calls the federal government 'incompetent,' foresees GOP victories in November Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush told Fox and Friends last week that populist anger toward Washington could result in a political "tsunami" that sweeps many Democrats out of Congress come the mid-term elections this November.

"I think we’re living in such a complex world and our federal government just appears—and not just appears—is pretty incompetent," said Bush.

The former governor blasted President Obama for not adapting his ideology in light of populist displeasure regarding the administration’s policies. Bush also mentioned that the president and other Democrats should have learned something from Republican Scott Brown’s recent senatorial victory in Massachusetts, a historically liberal state.

"My prediction is if the administration and Congress doesn’t try to change its course, there will be huge gains for challengers to incumbents, but most particularly for conservatives, most particularly for Republicans," said Bush.

Meanwhile, former Vice President Dick Cheney told political activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday that he believes Barack Obama is a "one-term president."

Cheney noted that the recent GOP victories in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia are "enormously encouraging" for Republican prospects this fall, according to The Washington Post.

    OOOHHHRRRAAAHHHHH GO INDEPENDENT STATES PARTY!!!

    • Patricia

      L,USA
      Your correct with the underlying thought that we are completely exasperated with both parties and there is a strong desire to have an
      Independent party. My concern is that the D’s would be very happy if
      the voters were split because it would pull voters away from the R’s.
      insuring a second win for you know who.

      Totally frustrated !!

      • Tim

        I wish that there were more political parties to choose from. The Rethuglican Party is wrong 95% of the time; the Democratic Party is wrong maybe 30% of the time. I remember how good it felt in 1980 voting for the Independent Candidate for President, Rep. John Anderson. I didn’t care for either Reagan or Carter in that election.

        We see a better variety of more political parties in countries like Britain and Canada. We need to follow their lead in this country.

        • J C

          We need a Constitutional Republic in this country, not a completely dysfunctional Parliament.
          Both parties are corrupt beyond repair due to taking their orders from bankers.
          Throw them all out!

          • Joe H.

            JC,
            I think you will agree with me on this. Timmy says that the libbers are wrong maybe 30% of the time!!! If they were wrong only 30% of the time, I wouldn’t be so worrird about our country going extinct!!!

          • J C

            Tim’s analysis is contrived at best. The whole system of cronyism, lobbying and central banking is wrong 100% of the time. Congress signing it’s authority over to a private bank in 1913 was unConstitutional and should have been punished with charges of treason. Central Banking is aligned with the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto and is completely unAmerican. It has also allowed Congress to run amok with it’s spending policies. How can either party be “right” about anything in a system that is automatically wrong?

        • Not-Impressed

          Yes and we socialism in its bloom also.

          • denniso

            All of these longterm politicians and functionaries in gov’t coming out to inform us that the gov’t they’ve been a part of is, after all, imcompetent,corrupt or the ‘enemy of liberty’. Jeb was gov for 8yrs, cheny has spent most of his life in gov’t, ron paul has been a rep for yrs…hypocrites and playing to the votes…

          • eyeswideopen

            denniso, we here in Fl are still cleaning up the mess that Jeb left us with. Just this weekend the GOP had to get a new chairman, as the last one was corrupt. The new one Senator Thrasher, stated that “the enemy is the Democrats”. I thought we were at war with the terrorists, not other AMERICANS. Yes, the Dems may be the opponets, but the enemy? Does this give you the idea of how the state functions? The past year we had to get a new Senate Chairman, as he is up on corruption charges, funneling monies to a University, who was hiring him. Yup, we had to take 3.8 billion dollars in stimulus monies to keep our schools open this year. Let me see, we have been a Republican controled state since 1996 and we are bankrupt to the point that we have to take federal funds. I would really like to know what the fiscally responsible repubs were doing in this state that got us into such trouble. Yep, gave those repubs control and look at what we got. Republicans have taken this state and put it into the crapper.

          • JC

            denniso, Ron Paul’s voting record speaks for itself. But I get your point

          • denniso

            Eyes…you’re absolutely right!!!

          • Joe H.

            JC
            Which one the one on top of his head??? That just makes his foil hat fit better!!!!

          • JC

            Joe you’re question makes no sense at all. Are you implying something in particular or just casting nasty groundless aspersions on a great American who’s baggage you couldn’t carry three feet?

          • Joe H.

            JC,
            I was refering to the statement on getting dennislo’s point!!! I’m surprised he was able to make one!!

          • JC

            Ah! I see. Apologies my conservative friend. Apparently I’m a little “too” gaurded about Ron Paul.

          • Joe H.

            JC,
            No offense taken friend and no apology needed!!! I figured I didn’t make myself clear when I saw your post back!

          • JC

            Thanks Joe, keep fighting the good fight.

      • DaveH

        Patricia,
        There are many Democrats that are also miffed with the direction their party has taken.
        We have gotten where we are now (Gargantuan Government) largely because Conservatives have bought into that “split the vote” scenario.
        Government has grown consistently under both parties, thus depriving us of our money and our freedom. For sure the Democrats grow it much faster than the Republicans, but it still grows. People need to abandon the idea that the Republicans are the solution. Just look to the recent elections. There was Scozzafava who was an ultra-RINO, and now the RINO Scott Brown is revealing his true colors. And in both cases we were in the midst of disgruntlement with the Democrats.
        Do you really want to waste any more trust on the Republican Party?
        There is really only one party that advocates the kind of Individual Liberty, Individual Responsibility, Limited Government, and Free Markets that our Founders envisioned. That is the Libertarian Party:
        http://libertarianparty.org/platform

        • Harold Olsen

          Democrats only started to become disenchanted with their party AFTER Democrats started losing elections. Before that they were perfectly happy with their party and what they were doing. Now they are running scared and worried that they will have to get honest jobs instead of stealing our money.

          • DaveH

            Harold,
            Not all democrats want to ride on the shoulders of unwilling others. Many that I have talked to just don’t like the Republicans dictating what they can do with their own money and property. And many of them don’t like the United States being the World’s Policemen.
            I don’t have any idea what the percentage of “shoulder riders” is in the Democrat Party, but it certainly isn’t 100%.

          • DaveH

            I meant to say their own “bodies and property”.

          • clay barham

            Of course, the original Democratic Party followed Jefferson, Madison and Calhoun, and they were the proof that libertarians are right, at least their brand of libertarianism, as cited in The Changing Face of Democrats on Amazon and claysamerica.com. They proved Libertarianism, so the answer is whether they can turn around and go back, rejecting their current allegiance to Rousseau, Marx and Obama.

      • Harold Olsen

        I think that those of us who do not like either major party should zero in on candidates from one of the lesser parties, such as the Constitution Party, or candidates affiliated with no party at all and give them our support. It would give the Demicans and Republicrats a heart attack.

        • Claire

          Harold Olsen—I agree.

      • Cel

        I know that Bush made mistakes.
        But compared to this President….his mistakes look like a mistake a kid would make.
        I remember how strong Bush was in standing behind our country. He never did go to other countries and apologies for America.
        Hillary Clinton is the only one in this administration who has any balls.
        This administration has made us slaves to China.
        This leader can not recall half of his life….look at the tax cheats he has nominated. Look at the criminals he has as friends. Look at his minister…a raciest who hates America. How on earth can you people not see what is going on ? you are the reason it is going on.
        Did you bother to check Obama’s history out ? what little there is..most of it is “sealed” …do you remember Hillary saying he was not qualified ?? She was right.
        Look at his newest nominee…”Rashad Hussain” do you know who he is ?
        How many of your fiends are out of work ? The jobs bill that was passed to loan money to small business…did you know Treasury does not want Neil M. Barofsky to oversee it ? Why ??? they don’t want oversight ??? You people need to check your HISTORY…the road we are going down is just WRONG…we are losing freedoms …google “Mark Lloyd”…Obama created a job for him….he has a reason for putting these radical in created jobs.

        I will take BUSH any day……at least he loved America, and he supported our troops…

        • Charley41

          Yes but BUSH and Cheney still in bed with the one world group, CFR and etc.

        • Joe H.

          Cel,
          If you really want to get hot under the collar, then check out the average salary of a government employee. I saw on the news the other day that it was now about 70,000 dollars a year!! I’m going to try and get a job with them as the starting wage averages 40,000 a year!!!

          • JC

            You’re chances are pretty good. There have been 30,000 new government jobs every month since His Hopiness slid into the White House.
            Think for a minute just what that is costing people who actually work…

          • Joe H.

            JC,
            Yeah, that’s why I wouldn’t really do it!!!

          • JC

            No I imagine not…my guess is you’re one of the minority(?) in America who’s principles don’t allow for “government (welfare) service”.

          • Joe H.

            JC,
            My back is so screwed up some mornings I can barely walk from my bed to my chair!! I could be on full disability if I wanted but I just can,t bring myself to apply for it!!! I don’t work now ,retired you might say we can afford it and my wife says if I go back to work she will see to it I don’t go back again. Afraid I’ll end up in the hospital. Got enough metal in my back I set off the detectors in the airport!!!!I,ve worked at one thing or another since I was 12 years old from mowing lawns to working in a hatchery ro aircraft crewchief to welder!!! I just can’t stand to be on the dole!!!

      • L, USA

        Patricia, Your reply is wrong-headed. My point of exclaimation was/is in direct reference to the true conservative Republicans, who see the liberals as “carrear politicans” and are sweeping house of them. http://www.nbra.org

        Your plan for a “third party” is exactly what the liberals want. Only Repbulican conservative officers can beat the liberals as a party.

        “Democrats should have learned something from Republican Scott Brown’s recent senatorial victory in Massachusetts, a historically liberal state.

        “My prediction is if the administration and Congress doesn’t try to change its course, there will be huge gains for challengers to incumbents, but most particularly for conservatives, most particularly for Republicans,” said Bush.”

  • Mandy

    Jeb 2012?

    • Tim

      Two President Bushes was bad enough.

      • Not-Impressed

        Don’t know about you Tim but I had a job when the Bushes were in. Now I don’t. I had the same situation when the CVlinton’s were in power.

    • Harold Olsen

      We’ve already had two Bushes too many! No more Bushes, PLEASE!!

    • eyeswideopen

      Mandy, take a look at Floridas economy and you won’t want Jeb.

      • Claire

        eyes—I have a very good friend that lives in the central part of Florida. She did not like Jeb Bush. And she is a die-hard Republican. Florida is really bad off, and Charlie Crist took the stimulus money. And now he is being crucified for it, but many states took the stimulus money. It is a no-win situation.

        • eyeswideopen

          Claire, I don’t want to defend Crist, but without money, no school. As it is we have a drop out rate of %40, we can’t afford more non-educated kids. The Fcat in this state is worthless, one of Jeb’s brain child ideas. Our kids spend 4-5 months of year learning how to pass the FCAT tests. After 14 years of repubs this state is floundering and our choices are very limited. Sad thing is, I helped put everyone of them in office. Live and learn.

          • Claire

            Eyes–My friend does like Crist, and that she liked him better than any governor they have had for the past several years. She said he has done all he can for Florida. Apparently he had a mess to deal with when he was elected. I haven’t paid much attention to the guy, but what I did see I rather liked a few things about him.

          • Claire

            eyes–I know, I helped elect a few bad ones too. “Live and learn” are very accurate words. All we can do now is try to do a better job of voting.

      • Joe H.

        Eyessewedshut!
        The state of Florida is like 75% retired and snowbirds!! When half the state is on medicare and medigap what do you expect??? hey, in a few more decades the whole state is gonna be one big sinkhole anyway!!! Keep overpopulating the state and depleting the water under the coral base and bye, bye!!!

        • eyeswideopen

          JoeH, I have never called you a name, nor have I ever mis-stated your name to degrade you. Why is it that you ConservaTIVES, have to do that? Then you demand respect from others. Don’t you think that is a little ironic? Your name offers many mean and ugly things that could be done to it, but as a respectful person I refrain from taking the op to slam you. Just wondered why all of you feel the need to do that? Does it make you feel better, by name calling? Strange people, you Conservatives.

          • Joe H.

            You started the insults with dennislo, I’m just returning the favor. Don’t like it, don’t start it!!!

  • cerebus23

    i would be more excited if there was a serious 3rd party or real honest conservatives sweeping into office, rather than more of the same, how long before these rebubs sell out the american people? 2 years? then we swing right back. well maybe they will be a tad smarter this time and they will act like conservatives rather than act like democrats.

    • DaveH

      I doubt it. Scott Brown has already shown his true colors. You’re wasting your time Hoping and Dreaming that the Republicans are the answer.

      • Harold Olsen

        Not only are Republicans NOT the answer, they don’t even know what the question is. Democrat and Republican: Two sides of the same coin. They are interchangeable.

      • Claire

        DaveH–I have to agree with you 100% on your post. Brown is a RINO, and so are a lot of the other Republicans. Time to clean house-vote all of them out. Third party is the answer if everyone would get on the bandwagon and show the Dems and Repubs a thing or two.

  • http://YAHOO ALBA10

    Change is never without a cost. The Government is by us, as a people. It is the responsiblity of each American Citizen to educate and inform themselves on who stands for what and make an intelligent choice at the polls. A third party will be needed if neither party sincerely decides to listen to US. If they don’t listen, we need to find someone who will, decide what we want to see in governement and pursue it with our votes. Let the dice fall where they will until our odds increase of getting a better, stronger, safer,integral America.

  • Tim

    It is very possible that the Rethuglicans may gain seats in the upcoming election. That would be attributed to the sell job that Fox Noise and Flush Limbaugh did, in painting President Obama as a socialist, who just wants to expand government. I am glad I didn’t buy into all those lies!

    I certainly hope that doesn’t happen, because we saw what happened when George W. Bush and the Rethuglicans held the White House and majorities in both houes of Congress: Everything went downhill!

    • Patricia

      Tim I understand you don’t know history very well..!!!!

      • Not-Impressed

        Amen. Patricia

        • Joe H.

          You have to understand it’s hard for Timmy to buy into anything with blinders on!!!!

      • Jana

        Tim wouldn’t like it if we called them Dummycrats, so stop with the childish names, you are just putting yourself down.

        • libertytrain

          Jana, my feelings exactly, how can any of us be taken seriously if we can only resort to name calling – like kids that don’t know better (or kids who have parents that neglected to teach their children)…. just a thought.

    • J C

      Small scale thinking. Patricia is right, you need to do some reading.
      Try “The Creature From Jekyll Island” and “Hamilton’s Curse” both are interesting and informative.

      • Swansong

        Good grief TIM! All those clever names! Must’ve taken you ages…

        Obama, by the way, is more accurately described as a Marxist (go spend an hour on uTube listening to his speeches pre and post election). While you’re about it, read the Communist Manifesto, too. Very illustrative.

        And no, I’m not name-calling. That’s accurately what you would classify his beliefs as.

        • JeffH

          Swansong, I too believe Obama to be a marxist. A little research reveled that during his campaign. A true threat to America.

          • JC

            Jeff, for all appearances His Hopiness is most certainly a Marxist.
            But I don’t think it’s a philosophy he even understands. He is simply acting on orders like every other President. The NWO gang is running the show and are the real enemies of liberty and all Americans. The so called left are representative of the portion of the population that has been most thoroughly sleep walked into a belief system that government is benevolent and is here to protect us. They aren’t here to protect us at all, they’re here to remove our sovereignty, our freedom and our liberty and make us all compliant to their New World Order. We Americans who understand this are literally the last hope for freedom here on our little blue planet, which is why we must maintain an iron will.

        • Charley41

          Thats exactly right Swansong…And we are not giving enough attention to CAIR and the many other org. supporting the terrorists goals..
          Read MUSLIM MAFIA Please! Please!

        • eyeswideopen

          Swansong, what do you think of Bush Sr. promoting a NEW WORLD ORDER?http://youtube.com/watch?v=Rc7iowcf8g
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory)

          Where you upset when he was confirming that he is behind a New World Order, or did you just decide to become concerned now? Oh, that’s right, repubs don’t do anything wrong do they?

          • eyeswideopen
          • JC

            About the same as I think of Prescott (Grandaddy) Bush laundering money for the Nazi’s and about the same as I think of Dubya invading Iraq. They’re another family dynasty of political crooks.
            But I’m still a conservative.

    • Ellen

      I am SORRY Tim, but your negative name slander is not going to help us any! Both parties have let us Americans down. We Need a REAL True stong person that listens to the people, for the people, not greed or Their own agenda. Who ever we need a person that KNOWS what our forefaters already found out and they realy on the Constitution. If it takes a third party to CLEAR Wash.D.C. out LETS clean it up, the ones in Office right now ARE NOT FOR US! There is a lot of clearing out that needs to be addressed RIGHT now, illegal imagrents (costing us $$$$), Border and entrance Control and on, on. I just hope we are not to late!

      • Robin from Indiana

        Ellen.. I agree… We need to know who is getting kickbacks from what lobbyists and we need to know who was ‘bought’ to get the bills passed. We need to know how much in kickbacks were taken, and what was involved in buying votes for or against the bills. It should be public knowledge. Does anyone know where to go to find this information?

        • Michael J.

          Robin,
          Search: “Congressional Kickbacks” for a good start.

    • Cel

      Sorry, Republicans held Congress when Clinton was in…Democrats took over in 2006…what have they done ??? Oh…and let me remind you Congress did a lot more when they were in….they balanced the budget, not Clinton.

  • thefedupamerican

    The Federal government IS incompetent. But Republicans better not get too comfy either. We aren’t thrilled with their behavior any more than the massive overreach of the Dems. Repubs better get the message and run true conservative candidates…no more RINOS! thefedupamerican.com

    • JeffH

      Exactly the sentiments of most.

    • Jana

      thefedupam. I agree. All of the candidates are now calling themselves “True Conservatives”. It is hard to tell just from what they are saying, but we need to hold them accountable when they show they are not Conservative.

      I would prefer some of the Libertarians run on the Repub. ballot, so we would not split our votes. We can’t afford to have Obama, nor his yes men in any longer than we have to.

      • Cel

        No, Jana,
        Republicans are “conservatives” ….they drifted away from the “conservative values” that was the problem, they are now coming back because of the tea party….I am a Republican so I can talk…I am a member of the “Tea Party” movement….we want the Republicans to come back to our core values.
        Republicans are not people who try to dictate as one posted. We believe in small government. A local government knows what they need more than they know in Washington. Federal has taken a lot away from state government. This is one of the reason we are upset with Gov.

        ***

        • Jana

          Cel, I am a Republican too. What I meant was every candidate is advertising how “Conservative” they are, even though I have checked on some of their voting records and they haven’t always voted conservatively. It is indeed our core values and I desperately want them to get back to these values.
          Thank you for sticking up for Conservatism and for going to the TEA parties.
          I think you need to reread what I said, as I am saying the same thing you are.

          • Cel

            Sorry Jana, I just went over the “post”

            Yes, we do agree.
            I am so sick of how Americans are being treated. I just feel that this administration does not care about what we think…..

            You know, my hometown is a college town, and our people are not like these people….I really feel that Washington thinks if you don’t attend one of their big schools that you are a nothing…can’t think.

            One of the Tea Party meetings we had this guy, he was a principle at one of the local schools and he said “get your neighbor to run for office, you run” vote for people you know.

            We have got to stop voting for these lawyers who go to Washington and get greedy and forget about who sent them to Washington. I have never in my life seen so much corruption. Every time I hear of a new nominee I google them…..”Rashad Hussain” was another “terrorist” protector.
            google him.

            I think Obama would throw his Michelle under the bus if it would keep him in the White House. You know he knew how Rev. Wright felt about white people….20 years ?? and he said it with a straight face, what does that say ??? “it does not bother him to tell a lie”

            I do stand for “conservatives” values above all.

            ****

          • Joe H.

            Cel,
            I am 59 years old and have voted as conservative as I could and still try to keep the dems out of office. I really started to hate them when I was in RVN and I guess the hate really grew with Carter!! but this one?? I guess the best term to use in loathing and pity! Why pity? he will never know just what he could have in this country, the respect of a whole nation for a job well done. the only thing he will ever know is how to be a sell out, as in how he has sold out this country!!! His wife is no better as she is a worse race baiter than he is her and her first time she’s ever been proud of her country!!!
            The ones I really feel sorry for though is their kids. They’re going to be about 15 or 16 one of these days and they’re gonna hear how much of an A..H… their parents both are and how their father is a worse president than a peanut farmer!!!

  • rob

    Wow! Everyone here is right on track!

    What Jeb Bush fails to realize is that Barak Obama swept into office over severe displeasure in how the GOP was running things. Thats why his “Change” theme was so popular. America wanted change from 8 years of Bush mismanagement.

    The GOP does not deserve your vote.

    The mess we are in was not created under President Bush, it took many decades of both Democratic and Republican mismanagement. President Bush not only did nothing to help the situation, he in fact made it a whole lot worse with his over spending, and needless Federal expansion. Cutting taxes, and increasing spending does not work. Its a no brainer…

    Cerebus23….How long before these rebubs sell out America?
    They already have, and no, they will not be smarter if given yet another chance. Forget it. No more chances, we can not afford it.

    People cannot seem to distinguish between a party’s “Platform” and how they really behave in office. People vote for Republicans because Republicans stand for lower taxes, smaller government….ect.

    But Republicans have no solid track record of staying with their platform. Sure they cut taxes, but then expand the federal government.

    Screw it, you are correct, go with independents. Any and all. Even if it splits the conservative vote like it did in 92 when Clinton introduced Ross Perot to drain votes away from Bush senior. If we vote Republican we lose for sure, so why not roll the dice and vote for whats right? Obama will not win, even democrats don’t like what he’s trying to do.

    We need more Jesse Venturas…..People from the outside, not politically connected.

    Let them know that the next time they think allowing the outsourcing of America’s industries to overseas labor markets, the undermining of America’s economy and tax base is a good idea, there will be hell to pay.

    We are not getting out of this economic mess anytime soon. Until Americans go back to work, we are stuck here.

    Let them hear you this November. Let them hear you the way Massachusetts responded.
    Thank you Massachuessets for coming through when we needed you!

      rob,
      Are you ready for four more years of Obummer??? That’s exactly what you will get if you split the vote enough and the independent vote fails to gasrner enough votes. We are so far in debt that your grandchildrens children will still be paying for it. What do you think four more years of liberal policy will do to us??? We might as well tell the Chineese to come and take over the U.S. cause they will own her!!! Is that what you want???

      • DaveH

        I’ve been hearing that same tired mantra since I became of voting age. It’s been 40 years now. With the notable exceptions of Reagan and Ron Paul (who is really a Libertarian), the Republicans have let us down. They are Big Government Lovers every bit as much as the Democrats. They just have different agendas. But the results are the same – Bigger Government, less money, less freedom!
        If people would spend the time to understand what Libertarian Principles are, and why they would work, the Libertarians would be a shoo-in, except of course for those people who are feeding from the taxpayers’ wallets and purses.

        • Claire

          DaveH–what aggravates me is that everyone wants change but they still vote Democrat or Republican. Everyone wants to “clean house” well, let’s do it!!Take the bull by the horns and vote for a third party. All of us!! Do what we have to do to get rid of the shysters. I would vote for Ron Paul in a heartbeat but he will have to get millions of votes! This is the only way to beat the politicians at their own game.

          • Charley41

            I like Ron Paul but he’s not presidential enough..I voted for Perot in the 90′s… does not work.. Just have to vote for the individual person that will do us the best job..

          • DaveH

            Joe,
            I really don’t think the Republicans would let most Libertarians run on their ticket. They’re too hung up on vice-crimes and the military state to allow Libertarians in their party.

            With all due respect, you haven,t heard anything on voting anylonger than me. I’ve been voting since I was 18 and I,m 59 now. I’ve never missed a single election local or national in all that time. even went as far as to vote absentee in RVN,germany and Panama canal zone!!! I take my responsibility seriously and always will.

    I would not count on too much change in congress in 2010. Look, a large segment of the population does not care what type of government or freedoms they have as they are most interested in receiving entitlements, welfare and any other goodies the politicians give out. The Dems are much better than the Repubs at this, at least as long as your money last. That is what keeps them in power. Many people may say they are conservative but when money is given out their hand goes out faster than a blink of the eye.

    The problems have been brought on by GREED GREED GREED at every level society, and just like other government programs that are going bankrupt greed will bankrupt the US.

    • Warrior

      Les
      You hit the proverbial nail right on the head. The most serious problem our country faces is lack of honesty and lack of respect for our fellow citizens and greed. Now, until these personal qualities are taught at home and in our edumacational systems we will continue down this path until we have destroyed this once great nation, which doesn’t appear to far down the road from where we currently reside.

      • Cel

        Warrior,
        Bush had those qualities….he was honest, he was a man of integrity.
        He had the war …. the main stream media hated him for that, even thought our Congress voted for it. Yes, Bush spent too much MONEY..
        I think America has …GOT to stop the “ENTITLEMENTS”…how do you do that ? google…”entitlement for illegal aliens” this just blew my mind…………

        We need a good “business man” in the White House….forget about those Harvard lawyers who …..want to “transform” America and make it like those wonderful European countries…

        This administration is worthless….not one has ever owned a business and managed it…..they read a book and they want to tell everyone how to do things and they don’t have …..”WISDOM” ..”experience”

  • Strawberry Shortcake

    Republicans = wolves in sheeps’ clothing, most of them anyway. Remember that all most of them will do is slow down the same agenda, which is simply bigger government; more control over our lives. Get informed about the Libertarian Party, they align with the Constitution and have the proper understanding of what the federal government’s role is in our lives. It was extremely frustrating to see at the CPAC conference’s mock election all the booing that went on when Ron Paul was announced the victor. Ron Paul stands for so many great things, he understands that he serves US. I was very pleased to see he “won” but perplexed at the reaction of the audience. Conservative Republicans are the lesser evil I suppose at least in comparison to the Progressives but it will only put us on the same course of recycling them all through again each holding the majority when we get sick of the other party and their lies, whichever one that may be at the time. My point is, none of this produces the kind of change that raised up the TEA movement, the kind of change that was that this country had already been founded on. You wan to go back to the Constitution? So do I. We need to start finding those that really know what that means, not all the same liars that NOW feel the Constitution important. They will most definitely ride the wave of voter anger to reclaim majority and we will be right back where we started, fooled again. Let’s not be fooled again for the sake of our children, ourselves, our country. If we don’t elect people that will seriously get to work undoing this mess (real results not more damn lip service) than we should all truly fear the future that surely awaits us. I don’t know about you all but I am sick to death of every paycheck my family is blessed with trying to figure out how much we have to save to pay our bills and feed our four children in the event of job-loss. We are financially frozen; bunkbed for my growing toddlers or more goods for our pantry. I’m sick of living on the extreme of “what if”.

    • J C

      “Republicans = wolves in sheeps’ clothing, most of them anyway. Remember that all most of them will do is slow down the same agenda, which is simply bigger government; more control over our lives.”

      That is exactly right. Both parties are dragging us down the road to Globalism. The Repubs are just doing it a little slower and BOTH parties need to go!

          and how far will a libertarian president go with combination dem/repub houses?

          • Claire

            Joe H–NO, no, no, don’t remind me of this!! Realistically you are no doubt correct, it would be just like it is now. Dang, wish I had all the answers.

          • JC

            Joe you’re a smart guy so I’ll take a run at your question. I Libertarian president probably wouldn’t get a lot of cooperation from the left, and not as much as we might like from the right. So the result might be a government that stops growing for a while. If that happens we may see a gradual return to prosperity and real economic growth, what with the government not fixing so many things.
            This could lead to the idea that a Libertarian predident is a good thing and in turn lead to more Libertarian Congressmen and Senators being elected.
            There is no way to right what is wrong overnight. At best it would take at least one generation to get it going back in the right direction, but we have to take that painful step somewhere along the way. Now is as good a time as any as we are moving ever more quickly to globalism.

          • Claire

            J C —good answer. Like you say, we have to take that first step.

          • Joe H.

            JC
            I think it would be worse, there would be no actuall cuts to anything either. spending would remain at least at the level it is now! What we need to do is convince the conservatives to run on the repub primary and let the dice roll. We need to convince the politicos on both sides that they work for the people not the opposite!!! they remain as long as we allow them!!! If they think their jobs are in jeopardy then I do believe they will walk a straighter line!!!

So many of the other Republicans that are running for office are RINOS. I still prefer a third party. Blago is still running around loose. There was a big discussion about hanging Blago’s picture in the capitol building a few weeks ago. It was funny, because what difference does it make? Hang his picture right beside the other crooked governors.

But you need to get young blood in the party, not these same old buggers that that are corrupt and too blind to see how poor America is becoming.It really amazes me that with our debt being so high, WHERE do we find all this money to give to other countries? When is it going to stop?

    • DaveH

      Susan,
      I don’t know how old you are, but the same thing happened after Carter nearly destroyed our country. There was a lot of hope for the Republicans to solve our problems. And Reagan did come in full of fire with a lot of good ideas (mostly Libertarian ideas), but his own Republican Congressmen hung all over him like wet rags and kept him from implementing them. We need to get over this pipe dream that the Republicans are the answer. They like the power given to them by Big Government, just like the Democrats do, and they aren’t going to relinquish it easily.

      Don’t count on it. Republicans will listen to our complaints and they will campaign on them. But, once elected, what will happen?? Scott is an example. Before the Massachusetts election, I had not heard of him. After he won I read that he had a record as a liberal. I will vote for only Republicans who can show me that they are true conservative–and not by what they say but by what their past records are. I won’t vote for Democrats because I do not believe there is any such thing as a conservative Democrat.

    “Democrats should have learned something from Republican Scott Brown’s recent senatorial victory in Massachusetts”.
    I hope that Republicans have also learned something from Scott Brown’s election as he has already proven to be a RINO with his recent vote on the so called “Jobs Bill” which is just a euphemism for another stimulus bill. And they have only used 30% of the other Stimulus Bill. Why is that? Didn’t they sell it to the public as necessary because of the economic Emergency?
    There is no doubt in my mind that the plan is to use the money as a Partisan Slush Fund to re-elect Democrats by buying votes (disguised as providing jobs).

    Since Republicans are more unpopular than the Democrates the elections could go either way. Republicans aren’t exactly coming up with any grand solutions.

      Republicans don’t have any good solutions ?

      They have been locked out of meetings for a year…..then the Democrats say they don’t have any solutions…

      A little unfair ??? Did you hear some of the Republicans tell the President that ?? It was at the meeting ….he finally had with them.

      Do you know that Sen. Snowe was invited for this Health Care summit tomorrow ? Oh, yes. they ask her yesterday…she said….

      No, I will go by the rules you set weeks ago….I don’t want to go “around” the rules.

      Now ….wonder why they would want her to come ?

      Could it be ….they want her vote again ??

      Did you by chance hear her a few weeks ago when she said after they got her vote the last time, they brushed her off and did not want to hear “anything” she had to …..”offer”

      Yes, I think the Republicans have had much to say….NO ONE HAS

      WANTED TO HEAR IT…..Obama said himself..”get out of my way”

    Anyone in office should have a clean background record, no cheating on taxes, etc… and they should listen to the people. The corruption in our government makes us look like a third world country under dictatorship! It seems we are powerless to stop it. We need to expose any and all who are not fit to be in office. The MSM is not going to do it. Exposing them will enable those who are not interested enough to research it on their own to hear it regardless. We may have to shout it from the rooftops, but the corruption has got to stop!

    • Les

      You cannot stop corruption, it apparently is in every government, term limits may reduce it some, but how are you going get a bunch of crooks to limit themselves to two terms? You would have better luck getting the Mafia to go honest. The problem is no matter how bad or dishonest they are they keep getting elected over and over because they know who to pass out the money to. So it is the people who have brought us to this point by their greed.

    • Claire

      Good luck.

      If we hired, not elected, our Federal Administrators based on their merits and skills…made their salaries exceptional for doing a demanding job…and made them subject to the justice system with severe penalties for graft or back room dealings…we would have accomplished several things, all of them good.
      We would have our Republic back and we will have cleaned house all in one move. And that’s just for starters…..

    • Cel

      Robin,
      In my work I had to do background checks before I could hire new employees’

      I believe that America watching how this administration has put these people in our government who are unfit…is one of the reasons Americans have stood up….

      NO….MORE…..THIS IS “MY COUNTRY”

      Robin,
      Those rules would get rid of half if not all of Obummers cabinet minions!!!!!

  • chuck b

    the best way to create another party is vote out the republicans and replace them with true conservatives. when they win control of the government then rename the party. both parties are corrupt beyond repair as they now. they have derived too much power and money, they live like kings and would sell their mothers if needed to be re-elected. voting for romney, huckabee or mccain would be idiotic. if thats the case why bother to vote nothing will change only the pocket with all the money. we need someone different, palin with a strong conservative vp to back her up, even the top echelon of the republicans along with the demos fear her. take a look at brown in mass. typical new age repub. “rino” do you think romney would be any different, absolutely not!! we have had enough, lets get rid of the liberals before thay get rid of us.

  • L, USA

    Huckabee is power.

  • Cel

    Chuck, Chuck, you are a man after my heart……

    My hope is that…..

    Look at America…look back ….years back….what we were built on.

    Oh, I want to see America with those values again..

    I believe that everything that has happened is leading to that..

    We set back and did not believe things like this could happen…

    It did, it has…..and now we are ………READY….

    Ready to take our country back….

    I am so proud of MY STATE…..

    Washington is coming next……..WE ..DON’T LIKE…THIS LEADERSHIP.

      What is your State, Cel?

  • suniday

    Ron Ray gun Borrowed and spent gave us Iran-Contra! G H W Bush borrowed and spent and didn’t finish the war with Iraq !Clinton balanced our budget left office with a surplus of billions and you all know what happened after that ? Yes, the American Public voted as usual, with their heads up their you know where, for the War President who gave his rich friends a huge tax break, spent the surplus, lied through his teeth about W M D’s, gave us two wars, let the Bin Laden family fly to France on 9/13, Has us borrowing money to pay for a war that is and will go on for who knows how many more years ! Sure what we needed was a guy that never accomplished any thing in his lifetime, on his own, to run our country into a ditch. Yup three cheers for G W B & the Retroublicans!

    • Joe H.

      Suniday,
      that balance that Clintoon left was just on paper!!! there was no balance!!!! The stock market had already started showing a downturn six months before he left office! Unemployment was inching up and the military was gutted so bad they couldn’t even maintain!!!

    • JC

      While we’re congratulating Billary, let’s toss in the fact that he (it?) was responsible for the legislation that let Freddie and Fannie run free with the whole mortgage thing that started the economic meltdown. The legislation Obama worked and voted for…the problem he blames on Bush.
      In what way do you not get that the whole thing is a dog and pony show?

      • denniso

        Cheny/Bush go down in history as the absolute worst president ever…how anyone can still support either of those should-be-felons is beyond me and all of us who are not blinded by partisan politics.

        • JC

          If you’re replying to me that’s not at all what I said. Focus!

        • Joe H.

          dennislo,
          YEAH right after Carter, and Obummer. Obummer worst and carter second worst. That’s why Carter backs Obummer so much, he took him out of fjrst ‘er worst place!!!

      • eyeswideopen

        JC, that legislation was passed during Clinton admin, when the Congress was controlled by the repubs. Dude, they liked the bill, or it wouldn’t have passed. You are too funny.

        • JC

          Ok point taken….so that means Billary and Hopey boy weren’t pushing it? Listen EWO I’m not an advocate for the Reds or the Blues. The whole system is beyond repair and we need to understand that.

  • http://www.amw-foundation.org lenyn

    if jeb bush didn’t see incompetence and downright stupidity in government when his brother was in the seat then i failed to se how he sees incompetence now. Everyone who has any intelligence above the 5th grade knows how incompetent, foolishish, cowboyish and just plain family money buying a seat in the white house including himself, who was at least one notch above his brother in intelligence, is either too blind, dumb and probably just too racist to see it. If i were you mr. bush, i would hold up on calling anyone incompetent.

    • chuck b

      llenyn

      evidently you didn’t make it out of the 5th grade!

    • jim

      Lenyn,(Lenin?)If all it took was family money to BUY a seat in the Whitehouse, how come his Dad didn’t just buy a 2nd term? When attacked by terrorists, I would rather have a COWBOY than a COMMUNITY ORGANIZER at the helm. And what does racism have to do with Jeb Bush? Did he learn it from his Latino wife?

      • Joe H.

        jim,
        But just think how organizes the enemy will be…..wait that’s supposed to be us!!!! that’s right we’re talking about Obummer here so it WOULD be the muslims he organized. like said he would come down on the side of the muslims!!!

      • libertytrain

        I have to agree with you on this one – and good reminder of Jeb’s “racist” qualities that are so evident in his life. — Everyone is now a racist if you don’t happen to agree with them.

  • Kiru Walker sichoongwe

    Jeb can make a good president

  • JC

    “Jeb Bush Calls The Federal Government ‘incompetent,’ ”

    Jeb! Buddy! Pal!
    The Dems are no more “incompetent” than any Republican out there.
    They’re doing what they’re doing deliberately…just like the Repubs do things to make us more secure…at the expense of our Constitutional rights. They’re doing it “for our own good” Just like Dubya did.
    And the show goes on…

    • Joe H.

      JC,
      Gotta call you on the ANY republican. check out Duncan Hunter!!! Good man. Really pushes hard for closing our borders!!!

      • J C

        Fair enough Joe.
        There’s a handfull of Congressman on both sides of the aisle who are worthy of representing us. Sadly though it really is just a “handfull”.

  • budman

    Opinions are like rear ends; everyone has one and some reveal more than they should.

    • jim

      budman, I was told it’s everybody has one and they all stink. That may have been the definiton of excuses though, I get them mixed up.

  • Annie

    Jeb had best be careful. We can always compare Obama’s approval ratings to that of his father or brother at the same time of his presidential term(s).

    The D’s would welcome another Bush to the next presidential election given all the baggage he brings with him.
