This website was prepared by a loyal Republican in the hope of saving the Republican party from supporting Jeb Bush for president.  Although masquerading as a Republican and a conservative, Jeb Bush has shown time and time again that he is a social liberal at heart.  His actions speak louder than his words and this website was built to reveal his actions to all Republicans.  What follows is the story of Jeb Bush's record as governor of Florida and it reveals what Jeb had hoped his fellow Republicans would never find out..

Jeb Bush On Judicial Appointments:

If you want to know what kind of justices we would get with Jeb Bush as president, just look at the only justice appointed by Jeb to the Florida Supreme Court.  Peggy Ann Quince was appointed by Jeb Bush to the high court in 1998.  As one of the most liberal judges to sit on the high court, "Ms." Quince's credentials include:

  • Appointed to the Second District Court of Appeals by Democratic Governor Lawton Chiles in 1993
     

  • Former Florida Bar membership on the “Gender Equality Committee”
     

  • Membership in the NAACP
     

  •  Membership in the Urban League
     

  •  Voted AGAINST President George Bush as a member of the Florida Supreme Court in the 2000 election debacle.
     

  • Voted AGAINST allowing the Florida Civil Rights Initiative to be voted on by the electorate.  The FCRI would have required Florida government to stop giving preferences to women and minorities.

It is quite clear that Jeb cannot be trusted to appoint conservative justices to the Federal courts if he is ever elected president.  

If you'd like to see more justices like Peggy Ann Quince on the high courts, just vote for Jeb Bush for president!

Jeb Bush On Preferences for Women and Minorities:

Jeb Bush has shown his clear and unequivocal support for quotas and affirmative action throughout state government.  Although touted as a move toward "fairness", Governor Bush's "One Florida" has actually expanded reverse discrimination.  Read the Press Release (in the right panel) by the American Civil Rights Coalition asking Jeb Bush to not sign a bill that expanded affirmative action throughout the state. 

If we elected Jeb Bush for president, it is clear he would expand affirmative action in the Federal Government and throughout the nation.  Time and time again Jeb has shown himself to be a social liberal.

 

 

The following is a Press Release from The American Civil Rights Coalition asking Governor Jeb Bush not to sign a Florida House bill to expand discrimination against white and/or male citizens in government contracting.  Jeb Bush ignored this plea and signed the bill into law, thereby expanding "affirmative action" throughout the state of Florida.

Governor Bush urged not to sign Florida race preference bill

(SACRAMENTO) Ward Connerly and the American Civil Rights Coalition (ACRC) warned that should a recently-approved bill in Florida be signed into law by Governor Jeb Bush in the next few days, it would represent a preference program targeted exclusively to certain groups on the basis of race.

House Bill 1323 would create the Florida Minority Business Loan Mobilization Program that permits state-certified minority business enterprises, regardless of wealth, to request advance payments (up to 10 percent) on contract awards as a way to obtain or increase working capital financing.  Critics of the new program say that a more inclusive way to spur capital development among disadvantaged businesses is to make wealth or geography a qualifying factor, not skin color.

If Governor Bush signs HB 1323 into law, it would shatter the myth that his
One Florida plan in 1999 was designed to end preferences, said ACRC chair
Ward Connerly.  Instead, this legislation seems to conform with the desire
of racial advocacy and entitlement groups to increase the number of minority
contracts through more crafty forms of preferential treatment.

When he unveiled One Florida in 1999, Governor Bush observed that only a
pittance "$257 million or 2% of available state spending" was spent in
1998-99 with certified minority businesses.  Whats more, most of this
spending went to firms owned by white women, who count as minorities under the present system. Instead, he promised that One Florida will gauge
minority spending, not by illusory goals, but by the bottom line "we will
increase the dollars actually spent on minority businesses".[W]e will hold
[government] purchasing agents accountable, by making public the amount of
minority business spending for which each agent is personally responsible.

In his Executive Summary of One Floridas Equity in Contracting plan,
Governor insisted: My plan is not race-neutral. Diversity is something to
be embraced, not excused. Race-consciousness is appropriate if State effort
does not come at the direct expense of non-minorities, as it does with
set-asides and price preferences.

da/executiveSummary.html)

Governor Bush can do the right thing and veto this racially restrictive
policy and insist on nonracial qualifiers to this otherwise admirable
program, said Mr. Connerly.  But, by signing the bill into law, he would
instead show Floridians that racial politics transcends equal treatment
under the law.

HB 1323 was sent to the Governor on Mary 22, and he has 15 days to sign or veto it.  If he takes no action, it automatically becomes law.

Jeb Bush started the "Terri Schiavo" fiasco:

Governor Jeb Bush was the first politician to step into the Terri Schiavo tragedy and try to milk it for political gain.  In October of 2003, when the Schindlers' (Terri's parents) final appeal was exhausted, Jeb Bush pushed through "Terri's Law," in the Florida legislature giving him the authority to intervene in the case. Bush immediately ordered the feeding tube reinserted. Terris' husband, Michael Schiavo, opposed Bush's intervention, and challenged it in court.

Bush is no dummy.  He knew the law was unconstitutional but he was not interested in the law itself, but in the political gain he could milk out of it.  On May 5, 2004, a Florida circuit court found "Terri's Law" unconstitutional, and struck it down.  Bush appealed this order to the 2nd DCA, and on May 12 they issued an order sending it directly to the Florida Supreme Court.  The Florida Supreme Court then overturned the law as unconstitutional.

The aftermath of Bush's meddling in this case was the biggest political disaster for the Republican party in years.  We learn two things about Bush through this incident.  First, that he will use someone's personal tragedy for his own political gain if he thinks he can do so.  He never cared about Terri Schiavo.  He got involved only because at the time he thought he could get some good press off it.  Second, we learn that Bush has extremely bad political instincts.  His meddling in this case resulted in the biggest disaster for the Republican party in years.  If we nominated Jeb Bush for president we could expect more of the same.


 
Daddy Cry Baby

 

George Bush 41 (Reagan's worst mistake) breaks down in another of his emotional blathers as he heaps praise on his dearest son.  Apparently what got dad all in a teary-eyed meltodown was not the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians that died in Bush 43's little war, or the hundreds of billions of dollars that Bush 43 has wasted on his war, but the memory of how good old Jeb accepted his defeat for Florida governor in 1994.  His crackup came as he said "the true measure of a man is how you handle victory and defeat."  Oh, it makes me feel like crying...

 

 



Bush Mistakes

The Washington Post reports that Bush's wars in Iraq and Afganistan will cost $4 to $6 Trillion


Bloomberg View (August 9, 2014), Statement by Barry Ritholz :

Each time I think I have finally put George W. Bush’s misadventures out of my mind, something comes about to remind us how utterly bereft of reason or intelligence the decision to invade Iraq was. It is likely to haunt the U.S. even longer than the disastrous Vietnam War." : http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2014-08-08/halfway-through-a-correction


People often say Jeb Bush is the smarter of the Bush brothers..

Smart Jeb Bush

Is this incredible or what?

(Read their lips: No more Bushies for President)


2012 Exit Polls : Voters Blame Bush for the Bad Economy

Not only did Bush start a totally unnecessary war with Iraq, but Americans now understand Bush is responsible for the worst economic catastrophy since the great depression.  Has any president in history screwed up the country more than George W. Bush?


 

MORE TO COME IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.  STAY TUNED...
