"El hombre no es conservador."

"Besides, he tries to personalize everything. If you're not totally in agreement with him you're an idiot, or stupid, or don't have energy, or blah blah blah."

Jeb Bush lacks the energy to finish a sentence.

THAT is funny.

It makes me think of Bob Dole in 1996 when he would end his statements with a similar cliche, as though it wasn't important to say what he meant. Just to say something.

Blah, blah, blah is an approriate slogan for the Bush Campaign.


Michael said...

Ha! Jeb employs progressive argumentation. Figures.

Nonapod said...

I don't particularly like either Jeb or Trump. Honestly neither one is really very "conservative", so this whole thing is pretty silly.

Big Mike said...

I still don't know what Jeb offers as the reason to vote for him. He's on the wrong side of the immigration issue, that's for sure. How will he fix the economy? What we he do if elected that the other candidates in the field would not do?

Lem said...

The use of "hombre" could backfire.

It could be associated with "tough hombre", cowboy like features Obama lacks.

As for "conservador". You have to go back to Reagan to identify someone with it.

Conservative is the new unicorn.

I've noticed that the Republicans have lost again. There are now enough Democrat votes to keep Republicans from stopping the Presidents Iran capitulation.

And yet they keep telling us not to vote for Trump, because these other guys, like Rubio, or Jeb, or whoever has been a politician for the last 4-6 years, they're going to change it this time, they promise.

On the other hand we have the clown, non-conservative, toupee wearing, Clinton supporter who tells us he's going to close the border (And has actually been consistent on that throughout the years). He's telling us this before they released the report saying 51% of immigrants (Both legal and illegal) use welfare.

51% people.

You don't think those people are voting for Democrats? Liberal Republicans?

It's gotta stop.

Trump esta el Diablo cazador de hombres?

When I was little, we found a man. He looked like - like, butchered. The old woman in the village crossed themselves... and whispered crazy things, strange things.

"El Diablo cazador de hombres."

Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year, it grows hot. We begin finding our men. We found them sometimes without their skins... and sometimes much, much worse.

"El cazador trofeo de los hombres" means the demon who makes trophies of men.

And Bushes?

I don't see how this line of attack can possibly succeed. If Bush is trying to peel off Trump supporters, forget it--they don't care about Trump's political leanings, and certainly aren't about to abandon him over this (or if they were, they certainly wouldn't pick Jeb out of the remaining candidates). If he's trying to reach the other 70% of the GOP electorate, this doesn't really give them a reason to back Jeb--he's not (despite his record) the person you think of when you think "conservative."

Jeb's better off arguing why he would be the best candidate--what he would do in office, why he would be the person most likely to get it done, etc. We're seeing another GOP primary season where everyone tears each other down and gives the public good reasons to dislike all of them, rather than a reason to vote for them.

The Dems are a lot better about not forming circular firing squads. They actually care a lot more about maintaining power.

Jeb Bush is a pathological loser. And what is up with all of these statements in Spanish to Spanish media? Which country's presidency is he seeking?

Just a guess here, but I don't think those who support Trump give a rat's ass that he's not conservative or that he's not a Republican.

"Just a guess here, but I don't think those who support Trump give a rat's ass that he's not conservative or that he's not a Republican."

They don't--there was a focus group shortly after the debate where the Trump supporters learned of Trump's more liberal leanings and ties to the Democrats, and the supporters were more supportive of him than ever before. They see him as the "un-politician".

Jeb has the problem of not exhibiting the fire in the belly of a true contender.

McCain, Dole, Romney, Hillary, Gore, Dukakis, all had the same problem - they wanted the presidency, but did not want to be seen wanting to win an election, instead somehow believing that their moral righteousness, or impeccable party credentials, or dogged perseverance was enough to make people vote.

Hillary shrilly yells about "fighting" for people, and people see her fight as one against the urge to tell everyone to shut up and vote for her, or else.

Jeb languidly says that he should be president, because he could do a real good job as president. That is likely true, but is not a reason to get excited about his candidacy because we see his competence as a given, and want to know what his principals are.

I think Hillary can threaten enough of the electorate to win. God help us all.
