Jeb Bush Kicks Off 2016 White House Bid

Mr Bush vows to boost America's economic recovery, promising a 4% annual growth rate and 19 million new jobs if elected President.



Jeb Bush has formally launched his 2016 White House bid, telling supporters in Miami he is the candidate to steer America back from its "very bad course".

The 62-year-old former Florida governor kicked off his long-expected campaign for the US presidency during a rally at Miami-Dade College.

Mr Bush attempted to establish himself as the anti-Washington candidate, vowing to get the nation's capital "out of the business of causing problems".

He pointed to his record during two terms as Florida's governor, saying: "I know we can fix this because I've done it."

Mr Bush criticised the Obama administration and Democrats, who he said are responsible for the "slowest economic recovery ever".



"You and I know that America deserves better. They've offered a progressive agenda that includes everything but progress," he said.

"I for one am not eager to see what another four years would look like under that kind of leadership".

Mr Bush promised that if elected to the White House he would boost the economy to grow at a rate of 4% per year and create 19 million new jobs.

Political pundits predict Mr Bush's conservative credentials will be tested in the upcoming campaign, particularly on issues such as immigration.

He promised on Monday to stay true to his beliefs.

"I will campaign as I would serve, going everywhere, speaking to everyone, keeping my word, facing the issues without flinching," he said.



The son of former President George HW Bush and brother of former President George W Bush joins an already crowded Republican field.

He is the 11th candidate to seek the Republican nomination, and more are expected to announce bids in the coming weeks and months.

All roads at this early stage appear to point to a general election showdown with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

Some conservatives, including Republican presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul, say the US is suffering from "Bush-Clinton fatigue".

Although Mr Bush has attempted to emerge from the shadows cast by his father and brother, he did not shy away on Monday from claiming that his family legacy was an asset.

"Take it from a guy who met his first President on the day he was born, and his second on the day he was brought home," he said to laughter and applause from his supporters.

We (Massachusetts) just had one of the Kennedy nephews become a Congressman on the first try with no experience. The election was not even close. The name was all it took.

If you pay a bit more attention, you will notice that neither of them is running on their last names and they are both deliberately downplaying them. In both cases, the last names are loaded with too many negatives for too many potential voters.

She's not asking you to "Vote Clinton". It's " Vote Hillary" and now it's "Vote Jeb".

If Jeb Bush wants to be a different kind of Republican, he should end GOP war on voting








When he was governor of Florida, Bush’s administration ordered a purge of the voter rolls that disenfranchised thousands of African-Americans, in a happy coincidence that made it possible for his brother to become president. The private corporation they hired to eliminate felons from the rolls did so by chucking off people who had a names similar to those of felons; people who had voted all their lives showed up on election day to be told that they couldn’t vote.


The remarkable outcome taught Republicans an important lesson. Here you had an election in which their candidate got fewer votes than his opponent, and the whole thing was decided in a state where his brother was the governor and the co-chair of his state campaign was the state’s chief election official. He won by an official margin of 537 votes, and the purge was just one of the things that made it possible.


The lesson was this: when it comes to voting, we can get away with almost anything. What came out of that election, as Ari Berman documents (external - login to view), was a wave of Republican efforts to win elections by keeping people less likely to vote Republican from being able to cast a ballot. African-Americans aren’t the only people on that list, but they’re at the top.

That is more than likely bull sh*t- no one found w.m.d.s which only proves one thing - the hiders were smarter than the seekers. Look at the A$$hole's history with the Kurds............................need I say more?

No one thinks Hussein was an angel. He was a serious azzhole, but he kept the peace in ME. His country was under control and he was no threat to the west. Taking him out was stupid. Now the ME is in total chaos, which is what the plan was in the first place. In spite of his brutality, the Iragi people were better off with him than without him.

So, your official position is that as long as some percentage of the people have nice apartments and cars, who cares about the 300,000 Marsh Arabs, Shiites, and Kurds slaughtered.

Would that be about right, Cliffy? You think Saddam was a great and wonderful leader?
