The attempted Restoration of the House of Bush on the verge of failure

Times are hard for the un-royal House of Bush. Their assigned next in line to throne, the Dauphin; Jeb Bush is being rejected by Republican voters. He gets ridiculed by social media and Donald Trump pegged him correctly as having low energy. Nobody wants the Dauphin as President, yet the House of Bush has spent millions to prop up Jeb’s failing campaign to no effect.

In a massive blow to the restoration to the House of Bush, reports are circulating that the low energy campaign of the Dauphin is running out of money. It is possible that the House of Bush restoration may run out of money as early as this weekend.

This is pretty remarkable. Sources close to the Bush campaign are beginning to leak about a call last night. I’m told the Bush team is out of money. Pay for campaign staff will end on Saturday. The campaign is all but over.

Additionally, after having hundreds of millions of dollars on hand, the Bush Super PAC has less than $15 million from what I am being told.

What a waste.

Ironically, if Bush really wants to have an impact on the race, given that his campaign is broke, he should publicly get out of the race today. This would be like Rich Perry in 2012, who got out, cast his support to Gingrich at the last minute, and saw Gingrich storm into first place in South Carolina.

Bush could be the king maker if he gets out today.

Many will cheer when it is official that the Dauphin officially ends his campaign. But like the Stuarts of should, they have another heir waiting in the wings. El Infante George P. Bush is waiting in the wings waiting to restore his family to power.

As Jesse Jackson said, “stay out the Bushes.” These are wise words to live by!

The Dauphin pays people to fill seats

Let’s take a break from the Trump vs. Rubio vs. Cruz debates to mock the biggest loser of this election cycle. That infamy belongs to none other than Jeb Bush aka The Dauphin. Although personally a decent man, the uncrowned prince expects the GOP nomination to be handed to him. This has caused a rejection on the part of Republican voters who didn’t want the Dauphin to run.

In desperation mode, Jeb is paying people to fills eats at his rally. In an embarrassing moment, some of those stand up demanded their pay. The Dauphin was not too pleased.

A little flier showed up early Monday morning on social media.

A handful of Twitter users supporting various Republican presidential candidates tweeted a photo of slip of paper with a headline reading “$$$ Earn fast cash today! $$$” and an offer for $25 an hour to attend Jeb Bush’s final campaign event at the Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines.

The implication: Bush was so desperate he was paying for faux supporters seven hours before the caucuses.


The notion that some kind of gamesmanship was afoot gained legitimacy at the event itself, when moments after Bush began speaking two young men stood up and very conspicuously demanded to be paid for their “seat filling.”

“We’ve been here for over two hours and we haven’t gotten paid for our time,” one man said, unleashing a torrent of boos and jeers from the audience.

“That is such — get out of here, man,” Bush shot back.

Staffers from his campaign approached the men and escorted them out, and Bush continued his speech. As he opened the floor for questions, though, he made sure the plants had all been removed.


If this is not bad enough, the Dauphin has spent 5,000 per vote.

In very early national polling in the Republican nomination race, Jeb Bush was the clear front-runner. But he never led in Iowa, where first Mike Huckabee, then Scott Walker, and then Donald Trump — interrupted briefly by Ben Carson and more effectively by Ted Cruz — held the lead. As recently as April, though, Bush was in a close second, trailing Walker by about three points.

Walker’s gone, and Bush ended up in sixth place Monday night, pulling in less than 3 percent of the vote. Between April and the caucus, Bush’s campaign spent $27.4 million dollars (according to FEC reports) and dropped 11 points in the polls. Not all of that spending was in Iowa, but Bush refused to give up on the state — and it cost him.

The Dauphin who called illegal immigration an act of love, then has the aducaity to run an ad attacking Rubio on Immigration.

Jeb Bush has turned into a sad and pathetic figure.  This is not the end of the Bush dynasty, waiting in the wings is the Duc D’Orleans George P. Bush!

This song is perfect for the Dauphin’s campaign.

Jeb Bush is a loser!

Bob Shrum trolls Republicans in support of Jeb Bush

Before the 2008 election, Democrats and their media allies lamented that the GOP does not nominate men like John McCain. When he did get the nomination, the media turned McCain into an racist and a bigot. Before the 2012 elections, the Democrats and their media allies complained the republican party did not nominate people like Mitt Romney. Article after article claimed Romney would be unstoppable in a general election. when he did get the nomination, the media thanks in part to Romney’s rhetoric during the primaries turned him into the 2nd coming of Adolf Hitler. History is now repeating itself with a former Governor from Florida many us can’t stand.

Bob Shrum who is committed to one thing only and that is victory for the Democrats, play the roll of concern troll with Republicans. Shrum writes a false flag article claiming that Jeb Bush is the GOP’s best shot for 2016.

Does anyone really believe Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, or Chris Christie can contend against Hillary Clinton? At least Jeb, the establishment’s establishmentarian, would put up a fight.

The GOP may have to return to the Bush leagues.

Here’s why.

In presidential nominating contests, the Republican establishment has always won out—from the first Bush, to the tried but tired Dole, to W., then McCain, and most recently Romney, who nonetheless had to labor mightily to emerge from the weakest field of candidates in either party, ever.


And they weren’t wrong. Sure, as the unskewed polls unraveled, Mr. 47 Percent lost—with just 47 percent of the popular vote. It was a fitting end; but any of the other GOP hopefuls, except for the forgotten and mortally moderate Jon Huntsman, would have turned in a far bleaker performance.

In the aftermath, those who traditionally dominate the Republican nominating process realize they are weaker than before and are therefore anxious.


So inevitably the centripetal force of the establishment GOP will move toward Jeb Bush. He may not run—or he may spurn his mother’s advice and plunge in. He says he will decide by the end of the year. He may bear the burden of the Bush name and his brother’s failed presidency, widely reviled in both parties. But he wouldn’t bear the burden of the Ryan budget. And he would have his brother’s advantage in 2000, which brought W. within an inch of the White House, where Jeb and a partisan Supreme Court could push him over the line: Jeb could campaign as the reworded version of a compassionate conservative, the last GOP theme that tracked the mainstream. He could even reprise the tactic of pledging to end gridlock—to transcend the “the bitter arguments of the last few years… to change the tone in Washington,” as George W. promised in his 2000 speech accepting the GOP nomination.


If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008,insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Finally and inadvertently, Hillary Clinton may help Jeb navigate this rocky road. If, and in my view when, she runs she will be “the inevitable Democratic nominee”—and voters will know it. Then the latest New Hampshire right-wing confab may be more a case of sound and fury than a predictor of the ultimate outcome because in states like New Hampshire, where independents can vote in either the Democratic or Republican primary, they will be drawn to the undecided race, free to take a GOP ballot—and cast it for a Jeb Bush. And then it will be up to him and his allies in the party establishment to do the rest. After protracted and bitter months, we will know whether Republicans want a real chance again in presidential contests.

I agree with some of Shrum’s assessment about the difficulties the current version of the Republican Party has in Presidential elections. I am even of the opinion no Republican can realistically defeat Hillary in 2016 as current conditions stands. But Shrum is full of garbage in his analysis.

Jeb Bush who is a Porky Pig clone,  has not run a campaign since 2002. He is washed up and out of touch with today’s electorate. bush also has a toxic last name based on the failures of his father and brother’s presidencies. A Jeb vs. Hillary match up will feature defections to the Libertarians party and a 45 state blowout win for Hillary. Shrum knows this and is just hoping Republicans take him serious and crash and burn with Jeb.


Andy Card: “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs”

The media this weekend was pushing the Bush mafia. That family had a gathering this weekend to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the disastrous administration of Poppy Bush. The first Bush administration marked the end of the Republican Party’s dominance in Presidential election and the permanent loss of their former Northeastern and Upper Midwest suburban base. The 2nd Bush administration ended in economic collapse and the rise of the Obama Regime. You would think that the GOP would want to move away from the Bush legacy, but sadly that is not the case.

Former Chief of staff under George W. Bush, Andy Card wants Jeb Bush to run. He believes it is the responsibility of the Bush Mafia to push Jeb to run in 2016.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign.

The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988.

“We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech.

“If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added, “I would work in a Jeb administration in a heartbeat.”

“Look at all of us,” said another former campaign aide, Jill Collins, excitedly motioning to an auditorium filled with former ambassadors, appointees, and cabinet members. “We are all ready to fundraise and start planting yard signs. We have all done it before and we will do it again.”


Sununu one-upped him, “If Mitt Romney had had the Jeb package, we would have won in 2012.”

The media wants Jeb Bush as the nominee because it would make Hillary’s election a sure bet. Clinton already is the favorite for 2016 and thanks to the demographic and electoral college advantages; nominating Jeb would make her job easier.

Jeb Bush comes from a  family of political losers that destroyed the once formidable Republican Party and turned it into the political joke it is today.  Nominating him would ensure an electoral disastrous in an already tough political environment for the GOP.  I know Karl Rove needs  a paycheck, but the country is at risk. The GOP needs someone in 2016 who will take unorthodox stances and possible pick off some Democrat demographics top even have a hope of winning the Presidency. Jeb is not that guy.

Stay out the Bushes!
