Jeb Bush Reiterates His Pandering to the Latino Community

Nothing will change
Politics • Views: 26,568

The right wing base will be apoplectic over this statement by Jeb Bush, of course: Jeb Bush: Give 11 Million Immigrants Chance to Stay.

HOUSTON (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush declared Wednesday that 11 million immigrants in the country illegally should have an opportunity to stay, wading yet again into his party’s contentious immigrant debate.

In tone and substance, Bush stands out among the many Republicans lining up for the GOP’s next presidential primary, where conservatives who oppose an immigration overhaul often hold outsized influence. As he moves toward a presidential campaign, the brother and son of former presidents has not backed away from his defense of immigrants in the country illegally and a policy that would allow them to attain legal status under certain conditions.

“We’re a nation of immigrants,” Bush said at the National Christian Hispanic Leadership Conference that brought several hundred Hispanic evangelical leaders to Houston this week. “This is not the time to abandon something that makes us special and unique.”

The thing is, it costs Jeb nothing to make statements like this, and may win him some votes from the Latino community, who are overwhelmingly opposed to most Republicans. (At least, from those Latinos naïve enough to believe Jeb is being sincere.) But Bush is pandering, pure and simple, and if he were to become president nothing would change in the GOP’s stance toward immigration reform.

Jeb Bush may well pay a price for this. This will mightily piss off the xenophobes in the GOP base.

This irritation may be enough for the GOP base turnout to drop in 2016 if Bush ends up as the nominee, especially if the GOP establishment has to resort to dirty tricks to ram the nomination through.

Bush’s wife is from Mexico, but Colomba has stayed out of the spotlight as much as possible during his previous entire political career. She is said to be a very devout Catholic, and no doubt is the reason he converted.

I don’t think she’ll change her previous stance, making only a few tentative appearances if and when he gets the nomination, but no doubt he will mention his family as being “Hispanic” and try to convince Latinos that he, too, is “one of them”. I don’t think it’s going to work all that well, though, maybe among some segments, but not the majority, Latinos being 17% of the US population, a pretty large voting bloc and very diverse as well.

That’s fair but I will remind you that he could and I suspect probably will pander on the issue. Do well to remember that McCain went from working with Ted Kennedy on the subject to “build the dang fence.” Now, I hope Jeb has more decency than that given that it’s an issue that hits home for him given his wife is an immigrant but pardon me if I am skeptical given how GOP politicians do pander.

30 ObserverArt  Apr 29, 2015 1:49:15pm

So, Jeb is taking a stand that pokes an eye into many a GOP current congressperson and in a way supports Obama’s Executive Order thinking.

I bet there are some major groans in the offices of Mitch McConnell and Johnny Boehner. I wonder if Jeb or anyone got a call from some of the current Clown Truck contingent? Something along the lines of “what are you doing to me?!”

This is fun. Please continue.

I have a big problem when a whack job like Huntsman (no taxes on capital gains, etc.) is deemed a ‘moderate’ because the rest of the GOP 2012 crowd was more visibly extreme.

This game of deeming parts of the GOP to be ‘moderate’ in contradiction to reality is a propaganda ploy by the GOP I don’t intend to either fall for or support.

And Wisconsin by the way is a border state. Anyhow, yeah Jeb does have a record of being moderate on this issue. That much is true but I think we have earned and deserve the right ot be skeptical of him given how supposed moderates have shifted on issues like this in the past. And I believe some months back Charles had a page showing Jeb doing exactly this on this very issue. I believe it was around the president’s immigration executive order.

Since you like ‘what ifs’ even if Jeb is moderate on immigration, how does it play with the main GOP congress people and can he actually do anything legislatively about immigration with the current congress and GOP thinking?

And if the current GOP mob that actually votes doesn’t want this type of moderation, what chances does Jeb have to actually get elected?

What on earth is wrong with ‘none’ as an answer to the question posed? The parties are far enough apart on this issue (as on most issues) that party affiliation really is the only relevant piece of information for activists pro and con.

The public conversation I’d really like to have about US politics would focus on how so many people who are not themselves bigots, cranks and wingnuts consistently vote for the party of bigots, cranks and wingnuts.

This conversation doesn’t get off the ground if the media persists in fostering the illusion that ‘moderate Republicans’ exist.

If Jeb took himself out of contention and then said stuff like this, I might take him at his word and view him as a “moderate.” But he’s in contention, he’s trying to win a segment of the vote that others are ignoring or pushing away, and I just can’t take anything he says seriously.

re: #78 CuriousLurker

I end to confuse Jeb with his brother too, heh.

The immigration issues WRT Cubans are quite different IMO, first and foremost because our relationship with Cuba is very different from that of Mexico. Ditto for imigration policy—vastly different.

Our economic relationship with Cuba was non-existent until very recent. Now granted there is the DR, Haiti, and Jamaica too and as I said Florida does have a higher immigrant population than many states including some border states. What troubles me about Jeb is the guy hasn’t been in any sort of political office since before 2006. And yes that would worry me about a Democrat too which is why you never saw me jump on the Al Gore 2008 bandwagon.

re: #68 ObserverArt

Since you like ‘what ifs’ even if Jeb is moderate on immigration, how does it play with the main GOP congress people and can he actually do anything legislatively about immigration with the current congress and GOP thinking?

And if the current GOP mob that actually votes doesn’t want this type of moderation, what chances does Jeb have to actually get elected?

I think in the current political climate, being a GOP moderate is a political death sentence.

It might be. Probably so. And that’s a better man than the guy that rolls over for the Tea Party. I hope he stays that course but that’s not so I can vote him, I think that’s the better example to set.

Read entire article on
Jeb and Terry Schiavo

this is the killer quote.

Bush read the autopsy—then wrote a letter to the top prosecutor in Pinellas County. He raised questions about Michael Schiavo’s involvement in her collapse and about the quickness of his response calling 911. “I urge you,” the governor wrote to Bernie McCabe, “to take a fresh look at this case without any preconceptions as to the outcome.”

If he gets the nomination, i want to publish this article far and wide. He’s a stubborn ass like his brother.

Let us not forget the other woman in Jeb’s past—Katherine Harris. Until she was cast aside as no longer useful to the Bush brothers, she was quite the little helper—purging voter roles in Florida, aiding and abetting the Bushies. Rumors of the Jeb/Katherine affair aside, I’d say she’s quite a large skeleton in his closet.

I hear from people like your bil “Oh the police have a tough job so go easy on them. You don’t know what it’s like blah blah.” And yes I don’t knwo what it’s like and they ado have a stressful job but they still have an oath that they took as officers of the law and they shouldn’t be above the law when it comes to killing people. It’s an absolute travesty of justice that officers that kill unarmed people are seldom indicted since prosecutors are like Robert McCulloch and instead of seeing them as representatives of the people in their counties see themselves as the police’s buddy in a sports coat and tie.

Those reports — which raise questions about the injury that led to his death in April 19 — point to Howard County court records as proof.

But court records examined Wednesday by The Baltimore Sun show the case had nothing to do with a car accident or a spine injury. Instead, they are connected to a lawsuit alleging that Gray and his sister were injured by exposure lead paint.

Yes of course. Thing is, these things really need not be exclusive. The answer “none” bears a logic problem with the premise of the question.Think I saw that answer coming maybe? A point that I will repeat. “Moderate” is a legitimate term in a relative use. For all an election can do, it’s rhetoric does not give the critics special powers over our language. Not even the ones with a good point to make.

I’m really not sure what the point of your question was. Most immigration activists - the people you wanted to select the “least bad” option in the question you posed - aren’t going to vote in the Republican primary anyway. Why should they? As a whole the party is anti-immigrant. The activists’ time and effort are better spent working with politicians who are actually going to care about what they have to say, as opposed to only caring about them for their vote but being willing to drop them like a hot potato if necessary to cater to the crazies, who matter an awful lot in the primaries.

Which was EPR’s point. Sure, say Jeb isn’t as extreme on immigration as, say, Steve King. But if Steve King (and people like him) are the ones writing the immigration portion of the GOP party platform, I’m not sure what difference Jeb’s so-called moderation makes. On the flip side, casting him a “moderate” in the sense that he is more “centrist” (hahahahaha, oh man) distracts the conversation from the fact that the Republican party has moved so far to the right that they’re off in the fucking weeds. That’s the issue I think EPR was getting at.

re: #161 HappyWarrior

It’s kind of like how President Garfield’s killer tried to blame the doctors for President Garfield’s death. Really pathetic if you ask me.

Although that was a pathetic move by the killer, it may well have been true.

Most historians and medical experts now believe that Garfield probably would have survived his wound had the doctors attending him been more capable.[48][49] Unfortunately for Garfield, most American doctors of the day did not believe in anti-sepsis measures or the need for cleanliness to prevent infection.[50] Several inserted their unsterilized fingers into the wound to probe for the bullet, and one doctor punctured Garfield’s liver in doing so. Also, self-appointed chief physician D. Willard Bliss had supplanted Garfield’s usual physician, Jedediah Hyde Baxter. Bliss and the other doctors who attended Garfield had guessed wrong about the path of the bullet in Garfield’s body. They had erroneously probed rightward into Garfield’s back instead of leftward, missing the location of the bullet but creating a new channel which filled with pus. The autopsy not only discovered this error but revealed pneumonia in both lungs and a body that was filled with pus due to uncontrolled septicemia.[51]

That is precisely my point. There really is no such thing as a moderate GOPer, for any definition of ‘moderate’ that is not made relative to the batshit GOP norm.

Since most people don’t realize that this peculiar usage is the only meaningful definition of ‘moderate GOPer’, it is basically deceptive to use the term at all. More specifically, mention of a ‘GOP moderate’ by the mainstream media conjures up a false image of someone who might be a pragmatic deal maker as opposed to the reality of a blinkered zealot or someone so beholden to blinkered zealots that there is no real distinction to be made.

Of course, such deception is intentional on the part of the GOP establishment and its media lapdogs, since they can pretend to be ‘the adults in the room’.

71 get life sentences for torching Christian church in Egypt

Cairo (CNN)An Egyptian court has sentenced 71 people to life in prison for their role in the August 2013 burning of a Christian church in the Giza province village of Kafr Hakim, state news reports.

The Virgin Mary Church was torched and looted by a mob, some of whom chanted against Coptic Christians and called for Egypt to become an “Islamic state,” one of at least 42 churches and many more businesses and homes targeted that August, the advocacy group Human Rights Watch reports. Others attacked included St. George Church in Sohag, a city south of Cairo on the Nile River, and Prince Tadros Church in Fayoum, which is southwest of Cairo, according to reports.

In addition to those getting life sentences, two minors were sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined 10,000 Egyptian pounds (about $1,300), Egypt’s official Egynews reported.

Most of those sentenced — 52 of the 73 defendants — were tried in absentia, with 21 already in prison, according to Egynews.

re: #244 Higgs Boson’s Mate

Isn’t today’s definition of liberal Democrat also relative to the general tone of the party?

Yes. Normally it makes sense to have these definitions be relative to the party in question.

‘moderate GOPer’ is a special case because the GOP as a whole is simply too extreme for that term to make sense in normal usage. The correct term for ‘moderate GOPer’ is ‘somewhat less crazy GOPer than usual’.

I realize it looks like I’ve got a bad case of being Humpty Dumpty, insisting on my definitions of words.

However, words do have meaning, and ‘moderate GOPer’ is a logical impossibility for any definition of moderate that suggests being centrist, a deal maker, not an ideological zealot or owned by zealots, etc.

Imagine the hypothetical case of an ultra-left party in the US, where two factions within the party were Maoist communists and Pol Pot style fanatics. Referring to the Maoists as ‘moderates’ would be wrong, even if true in a relative sense.
