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.

Wow, and I've always liked Jeb until NOW. Jeb, You doint JUST lose Conservatives but many others. Oh well. If thats the route you want to go, so be it and ALL that measn is that you will be screwing the whole country with your statements. Wow, I'm shocked.... Hey Jeb, just so you know, there went my donations to the repub party also. Now, win with that.

We don't need another Bush or Clinton.

GUESS WHAT we do not need or want another BUSH hanging around in the White House anymore then we need or want another Obama. If the asshole runs I won't vote for him. Or Hillery "the fibber" Clinton either.

This is why I will not vote for this moron and enemy of our constitutional Republic. Will the American people elect another enemy of this nation to the high office of President or will we take an immovable stand that says we have had enough of these godless snakes who are determined to impose their left wing liberal philosophies upon a people who reject their godless ideologies?

voted twice for his brother.....but would not in a million years ever vote jeb for president.

OH Jed! US, the Conservatives will fix you up in the primaries. Tell US now will you not need US on your road to the White House?

We the Conservatives will pick who gets nominated. And I can tell you now. It's not going to be you Numnuts!   

I think this idiot is related to Nancy Pelosi.

Sounds like ol'Jeb's trying to loose the race already...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

If Jeb is the Republican nominee and there is no 3rd party candidate, I will not vote. 

Jed Bush is done

Jeb Bush and Chris Christie will NEVER get my vote! Period. I won't even feel sorry if the GOP loses the White House bec. of their stupidity in promoting and funding such despiccable RINOs! Looks like we're going to need something like a Noah's flood to wash away all the GOP detritus. This is definitely the time for a strong Conservative/Libertarian/Constitutionalist party to emerge from the ashes of the dead old GOP!

I agree Joy we definitely need some alternative to the existing Republican leadership. The last election should have told them that they are on a "short leash", but I just do not believe that want a different direction for the country.

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
