Jeb Bush Praises Illegal Immigrants as 'Risk Takers,' Defends Common Core


In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core.


According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida.


“People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. 


Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. 


Bush also said he was the "Eat Your Broccoli Governor" and implied he would be telling conservatives to embrace policies like amnesty and Common Core, which is reminiscent of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman's all-in approach to global warming during his failed 2012 presidential campaign.

Jeb Bush, just another Obama.  One was too much.

He is not even on my radar.

....and that's why you will not get my vote on anything you do.

What an idiot.

The message is down to this level because Thanks to the thoughts of Jeb and those who follow his analogy we must become the former USA to continue to be the USA.  He and common core would follow U.N. mandate's for this nation.  He would leave the Constitution and teach how to avoid Human Rights violations for the immigrant and punish the previous citizens.  Nice play on core value's for a nation that fought for his freedom.  He wants to be president on that coin.  That coin has the budget just for D.C. up to 450 million per hour.  He is going to need strong amnesty programs just to pay the D.C. payroll and budget.  Jeb needs to listen to the American people again they are not aligned with his previous public service tenure.  He has laid out programs that prove why we are the former US.

For these two reasons is enough to send Jeb down the road to retirement ! Are all the GOP turned into communist as well as the Democrats, is there any hope for leadership anymore ? I think I'd like to see Scott Walker, President and Ben Carson V.President.

Skip, I now say that the Republicans are Socialist and the Democrats are Communists.  After being involved and working for the Tea party since 2009.....they have the people who share the same Godly and Patriotic values and visions that I do.  I only back Tea Party candidates any longer.  Some are Rand  Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rubio, Kelly Ayotte....  No longer can we trust any old boy of the GOP and we certainly can NOT vote for Democrats.  

What a stinking idiot !

I wouldn't have expected anything else from Bush, and all the other politicians that have Hispanics in their family, and life. With all these years of border crossings and mixed blood in this nation, there is no heart, or balls, to crack down on immigration...they would be dumping on relatives.

   The Bushes are ALL azzholes and obviously Jeb Bush is the biggest AZZHOLE of them all .  This misfit is a perfect example of a DEMONRAT regardless of what party he is in .

I'm so sick of this "Common Core" movement. Recently on a Saturday when it was snowing and cold here in Ohio my grown daughter got spring fever when she was out shopping and brought home  some spring coloring books and a large box of Crayola crayons. I was looking at the various colors and I saw that the movement has even hit the crayon industry. The color gray is no longer called that but it's now called "timber wolf". Then there's an orange color that's called "macaroni and cheese".  How's this suppose to teach kids their colors? This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. It's no wonder the kids in some of the other countries like China, Japan and India are so much more advanced than ours are. Obama says this country needs immigrants. I disagree. The answer is to stop cramming stupid nonsense into our kids brains and go back to teaching them the right way like we used to do. I had the experience a year ago when I called an HP tech for help when I was having some issues with my PC and they couldn't help me. He said call Microsoft so I did and I got a tech who had an Indian accent who was very bright and helped me with the problem. I asked him how he got so smart and he said he had a good education with no short cuts, no excuses for failure and no fun and games. We need to bring some of that back in our schools. So many of our schools are run like social clubs and if the kids don't want to apply themselves, well that's ok. It wasn't like that when I went to school because they made it understood why we were there. Period. Playtime was for after school, not during school. I can see the teachers wanting to make learning fun but I think it's gotten out of hand. There is also too much attention on sports.

Right on Jane!!!!

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
