Jeb Bush Comes Out Against Medical Marijuana in Florida

By: Friday August 15, 2014 8:54 am

It is worth highlighting and remembering this statement because Jeb Bush has been considering a 2016 Presidential run and polling indicates he has a chance at winning the Republican nomination. If Jeb Bush were elected President he would have the power to impede, harass or even completely destroy all the medical marijuana and adult-use marijuana companies in the places where they are legal under state law.


Does Cantor’s Defeat Spell Doom for a Jeb Bush Presidential Run in 2016?

By: Wednesday June 11, 2014 12:25 pm

To the extent that I’ve thought about it much, I’ve always sort of felt that if Jeb Bush wanted to run in 2016 the GOP nomination was his to lose, mostly because the Bushes are prodigious fundraisers and none of the other GOP hopefuls would be able to compete. But Cantor’s defeat may be the writing on the wall for a third Bush president.

Why Rand Paul’s Endorsement of Pathway to Citizenship Is So Important

By: Tuesday March 19, 2013 11:15 am

A possible immigration reform measure got a very important boost this morning when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) endorsed the idea of a pathway to citizenship. To begin with, Paul is a senator and every senator who supports the idea gets the chamber one vote closer to passing a bill.

More importantly, this endorsement by Paul now means a significant number of the top tier possible 2016 Republican Presidential candidates support a pathway to citizenship. This should make it easier for regular rank and file members to get on board with it.

Jeb Bush’s Rapid Flip-Flop on Pathway to Citizenship

By: Tuesday March 5, 2013 4:00 pm

In what is probably one of the fastest flip-flops in political history, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) now says he is actually open to creating a pathway to citizenship as part of comprehensive immigration reform, even though he literally just published a book that called only for creating a pathway to legal residency.

Jeb Bush Is Against Pathway to Citizenship

By: Monday March 4, 2013 2:10 pm

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (R) came out against creating a pathway to citizenship in comprehensive immigration reform. Bush only wants a pathway to legal residency.

During an interview on NBC’s Today show Bush said, “Our proposal is a proposal that looks forward and if we want to create an immigration policy that’s going to work, we can’t continue to make illegal immigration an easier path than legal immigration. There’s a natural friction between our immigrant heritage and the rule of law. This is the right place to be in that sense. Not to take away people’s rights”

Sunday Late Night: Veepstakes BushStank

Here’s the central aspect of the Rmoney Presidential Campaign: he and his rich cronies need the American people, engaging our vaunted short-term memory, to forget all about the global depredation and financial collapse of the Bush Years. Mitt’s rebranded the GOP to be all about a Businessman President, who’s Compassionate Yet Principled, who will deregulate America to get bureaucrats out of the way of entrepreneurs and Big Bidness. Also: taxcuts!

Wait, how is this different from W?
