Carl Hiaasen, The Miami Herald

There is no sign of a grass-roots pro-Jeb frenzy. The fact he was Florida’s governor for two terms isn’t wowing the masses — even in Florida. Polls there show Jeb trailing Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. He is only slightly ahead of the sleepwalking Ben Carson.

Read the Grand Jury report from the City of Philadelphia Grand Jury that indicted Gosnell.

Jeb Bush says he's "absolutely" personally offended by Donald Trump's recent incendiary comments about Mexico and immigrants coming from the country.

Jeb Bush’s Bizarre Group Therapy Campaign

Instead of assembling a political juggernaut that would crush all rivals, Jeb Bush has engaged for the past six months in a bizarre group therapy session with the American people and Republican primary election voters. We hope after his annoucement today Bush will stop torturing us with his insecurities about his family and his place in history and get down to explaining how someone with his positions and record plans to run a campaign on, as he put it “new leadership that takes conservative principles and applies them so that people can rise up.”

Jeb Bush Misses One Thing W Got Right

While George W. Bush was the originator of the “Islam is a religion of peace” lie, his national security strategy got the idea of how to defeat Islamism right; his problem was his implementation and the execution of the strategy by the very people with whom Jeb Bush has now surrounded himself.

The Real Jeb Bush and Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

Money can take you a long way in politics, it can even more or less buy you the nomination as it did Mitt Romney in 2012, but in the 2016 Republican Primary we don’t think it can nominate a candidate, like Jeb Bush, who fundamentally has the same position that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have on amnesty for illegal aliens.

What If Democrats Are Telling The Truth About A Republican Presidential Candidate?

"We don't need to try to show that Jeb is like Romney. He pretty much is Romney," said Eddie Vale, vice president of American Bridge 21st Century, a liberal group set up to conduct opposition research on Republicans. "When it comes to any ideas or policies, he's the same as Romney." And Vale has a point.
