Even though moderate Republican candidates lose presidential elections without the conservative base (see: George H.W. Bush '92, Bob Dole '96, John McCain '08, Mitt Romney '12), former Florida Governor and potential presidential candidate Jeb Bush thinks conservatives are not needed to win the White House.

Bush believes that a presidential candidate who is "willing to lose the primary to win the general" has the best shot at the White House.

"I don’t know if I’d be a good candidate or a bad one," Bush said at a Wall Street Journal CEO Council meeting on Monday evening in Washington, D.C. "I kinda know how a Republican can win, whether it’s me or somebody else – and it has to be much more uplifting, much more positive, much more willing to be... ‘lose the primary to win the general’ without violating your principles. It’s not an easy task, to be honest with you."

Should Bush run, his embrace of comprehensive amnesty legislation and Common Core will put him at odds with conservative voters in the early primary states. Bush, who said he would make a decision in "short order" about whether he will be a presidential candidate, revealed on Monday that he thinks a moderate Republican who runs as a moderate in the primary has the best chance of winning the White House.

Well, I did vote for both of the other Bushs.  This is one I will definately NOT vote for, and I'm an Independent.

And consider myself Moderate. Yes, I believe a woman's body is hers to decide over an abortion or not.  But there should be time limits.

I believe whole heartedly in The Constitution, and the 2nd Amendment

And I believe an ILLEGAL ALIEN, IS AN ILLEGAL.   Send them back and let them play by the rules.

 I believe in setting up towers along our border, with  orders to shoot anyone crossing without entering a proper border checkpoint.

Jeb's advice is good for Hillary and will help her win. As GOP advice, he is nuts.

My Dream

If the conservative get together and leave the Liberal Republicans. We can run our own party and the do nothing Republicans will have to come us.

The difference of some Republicans and Democrats is biological

And America doesn't need jeb

Jeb talks about losing to win? with out violating his principles, that's easy for him as he has no principles.  He has stated in public that his Hero is ex president LBJ who was a pervert, notoriously evil. This man should not run for President!

Jeb Bush is going to learn about conservatives , when he is chasing stray dogs with a net . He is capable of making totally idiotic statements . Better just shut it Jeb!!!.

We should encourage Jeb to continue with his talking, he just digs the deeper but more important, he tells us who he really is. 

Hey Ray let the games begin! The people will pick the winner.

I'm pretty sure that the games never stop. They never have in my lifetime. But yeah, let him talk.

Jed, is a person who could run as a Moderet Republican or Democrate. If he is the Canidate on the GOP ticket in the 2016 election, he will not get this Conservatives vote or support. I would vote for any Independent even if it means Hilery is the next President. The GOP hasn't got the msg.

Look at facts Americans because what we see and are getting, shows that anyone not Conservative is a traitor! Just as Jeb Bush, and would love to call him a traitor to his face as I would not be lying!

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
