Jeb Bush equals Hillary Clinton

Campaign says Bush was 'mistaken' about NRA award

Bush frequently tells the story of being honored as National Rifle Association "Statesman of the Year" and being awarded a gun by Charlton Heston; except none of it is true.

Jeb Bush’s falling star

Joan Vennochi, The Boston Globe

A recent Public Policy Polling survey has Bush at 5 percent in New Hampshire. That puts Bush behind Trump, with 27 percent — and also trailing Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, John Kasich, and Carly Fiorina. In the good news department, Bush is still ahead of Jim Gilmore, a former governor of Virginia, who registers at less than 1 percent — and was the only other candidate to show up at a recent AARP event.

Why Jeb Bush’s campaign has gone so wrong

Dana Milbank, The Washington Post

Bush family patriarch George H.W. Bush is alarmed, bewildered and irritated, the New York Times reported over the weekend, that his son Jeb is doing so poorly in a Republican presidential primary battle dominated by Donald Trump. The 41st president summoned his son George W., the 43rd president, Jeb and Bush money men to Houston for meetings Sunday and Monday to sort out what has gone so wrong that Jeb is now cutting staff.

The Problem with Jeb Bush

Crystal Wright, The (UK) Telegraph

Jeb’s got the money and political dynasty but he doesn’t have the message. Jeb’s biggest problem is he thinks he’s entitled to the nomination.

Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton to Work a Shared Room at Urban League Conference

Maggie Haberman, The New York Times

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jeb Bush will appear at the same event on Friday morning, as both address the crowd at the National Urban League Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Bush: ‘Absolutely’ offended by Trump’s comments on Mexicans

Ed O'Keefe, The Washington Post

Jeb Bush says he's "absolutely" personally offended by Donald Trump's recent incendiary comments about Mexico and immigrants coming from the country. Bush, the former Florida governor whose wife is from Mexico, made his comments about Trump to reporters at the end of two Independence Day parades in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

'Dynastic duo': Get out of America's way

Dick Morris, WND

Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are an odd pair, but a logical one. Each ensures the other against the charge of dynastic succession. Each one is too old to demand younger leadership. Each dynastic house is steeped in wealth – the one in old money laundered by time and the other in the fruits of recent hustle, conflicts of interest and corruption.

Clinton vs. Bush Inspires Fear, Loathing

David Catanese, U.S. News & World Report

"Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, on the key important issues, they are two peas in the same pod," Rush Limbaugh said on Dec. 17, the day after Bush signaled he would seriously explore a candidacy. He playfully and mischievously pitched that the two should run as a ticket, rather than as opponents.

Hillary Clinton Joins Jeb Bush In Pushing Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

It appears to us that the only difference between Clinton and Bush is on the process by which President Obama implemented policies that he didn’t think the newly elected 2014 Republican majority in Congress would pass. And the Big Businesses and tech companies that are pouring millions into their campaigns are the ones who benefit from their shared ideas about "comprehensive immigration reform," not America's hard-pressed middle class families.

A.B. Stoddard: Jeb Bush All Money No Mojo

A.B. Stoddard, The Hill

Four months into the 2016 presidential campaign, Jeb Bush has all the money and none of the mojo. Despite the financial juggernaut the former Florida governor has built — Bush said this week he had raised more than anyone else has at this point in a presidential campaign in history — he is failing to excite crowds, dominate polls or scare away competitors. Bush comes in second or third in most polls, and when he has ranked first it hasn’t been by much. 

Hillary Clinton is About to Shake Up the Republican Primaries

With the official announcement of the Hillary Clinton campaign for President just around the corner we've begun to receive an avalanche of frantic e-mails asking “How are we going to beat Hillary?” CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie’s answer to that is almost always: Wrong question! The question limited government constitutional conservatives and other liberty loving voters should be asking is “How are we going to nominate a candidate who shares our values to oppose her?”
