Jeb Bush: I Would Govern Like
Lyndon Johnson as President

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/16/2013 8:25:01 AM

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy. Bush did not address Johnson´s Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, "We had a war on poverty, and poverty won." Instead, he was referencing Johnson´s mastery of

Comments:
Oh groan. I don´t know why he thinks that is a positive thing, despite what is said in the article. We need fresh blood in Washington. Not those who feel they are entitled to the position because of their last name, that would also include Hillary Clinton.

To openly admit... and broadcast this info, clearly The Progressives think they are untouchabe. Jeb simply reiterates what we already knew.... but loud enough to try & convince the Lo Fo´s he´s their man.

If he announces an exploratory team for the GOP primary... we must have a 3rd party ready to roll.

LBJ was only on JFK´s ticket to attract Southern voters. Had the assassination not happened LBJ would´ve faded into the woodwork. He was totally unprepared for what happened and tried to please too many people at once.

"Bush, who has a book on comprehensive immigration reform due out next month, said it was "un-American" to have illegal immigrants living in fear of exposure. "

So I´m un-American if I expect people to follow the laws. I am sick of Jeb Bush and his holier than thou attitude to those of us who think that following the law is a good thing. They wouldn´t have to live in the shadows if they followed the proper channels to live in the country. THey sure did a lot of hiding to get into the country so they are experts on it.

I voted for Bush twice. During his second term I was appalled by his actions. Bush started the DHS, TSA and signed the Patriot Act. He worked lovingly with Ted Kennedy to waste billions. His selected prosecutor, Johnny Sutton, persecuted our fine Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean. Bush is partially responsible that Obama was able to be elected. I wouldn´t vote for any Bush, ever.

On the Democrat side it will be Biden, Clinton, and a few others looking to take on the job of POTUS.

Republicans need to have name-recognition and stop focusing on social issues. They will take care of themselves once you actually gain majorities, and the power that comes with a majority party.

Focus on fiscal responsibility, energy development and how both link to funding gov´t without raising taxes.

When Democrats talk about education, remind them it´s a local funding issue, mostly with local property taxes, so why is this a federal conversation?
But then pivot to how an expanded energy production boom will help NEW revenues to pay for things like education, police and firefighters.
And has the opportunity to lower our gasoline prices which will be a benefit to taxpayers, and businesses alike.

But how can our analyses be taken seriously when we base them, like the liberals do, on misleading headlines that only serve as chum for folks who aren´t really open to considering a thing thoughtfully?

It just makes us look dumb.

Jeb better study history...LBJ came with a vast knowledge of Congress and his powerful connections there. He was willing to use his executive power like no one since to get his way. He won by a landslide in ´64 and had unthreatened majorities in both chambers. Jeb, who I believe is unelectable, has nothing going for him. Ex-Governor of Florida is not the same credential as Senate Majority leader and Vice President carrying on the work of a martyr.

Actually, #23, I did read the article. Jeb Bush said stupid things in stupid ways. Like Lyndon Johnson, Bush wants to get things done in Washington. I want to get things undone. He says that "it is completely un-American to require people living in the shadows." That´s bad grammar, but he seems to be saying that I am un-American because I do not want to help people who are not Americans break our laws. This is the best we can do for 2016?

To the lazy Bush was an economic and social conservative, very tough law and order 10-10-10.

I suspect that Jeb grew up in a delusional family that thought highly of LBJ. Those old enough to remember LBJ know he was a total failure as a CIC who mismanaged a military he did not understand. Like Obama, he was way in over his head and stumbling from one bad idea to the next.

I lived through the Johnson era, which was a nightmare. It was when our country exploded and began its noisy descent to hell in a handbasket. The whole problem was that Johnson couldn´t govern. He was famously a great armtwister and deal maker in the Senate -- possibly the most powerful and effective Senator to operate in the 20th Century -- but the skill set that made him so effective in the Senate was exactly what was not needed to govern a country. Plus, he never got over the fact that every Kennedy-Worshiper in the country resented him for succeeding John F. Kennedy, and Johnson did not have the leadership skills to overcome this.

Jeb Bush was our governor here in Florida, and did a very creditable job, but if Lyndon Johnson is his Presidential model, he should be kept away from the Presidency.

Since this Bush is a champion for amnesty, so if the liberal Democrats get their so-called comprehensive immigration reform through which is nothing more then amnesty in a gift box with a fancy name, this Bush should think about running as a Democrat, as the Democrats will then have about 10 million new foreign born voters.

LBJ was an absolute, power playing, arm twisting, string pulling politician who micro-managed the Vietnam war from the war room under the White House. (Those bohyas kain´t bomb a s*** house without mayh say-so from rait here!)

He was the epitome of what is wrong with our government.

He also killed many, many fine men without knowing what he was doing.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Dem Rep: Obamacare will bury us

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Documents: Biden and Kerry both

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
