HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told a Presidents Day audience of investors and money managers that it’s time for a return to civility in the nation’s politics. And the man who was ousted early from the Republican primaries of 2016 gave a decidedly mixed review of the first term of President Donald Trump, who bruised him often on the campaign trail. Bush spoke Monday to an audience of several hundred investors in Hollywood at a conference sponsored by the financial firm Noble Capital Markets of Boca Raton. During the speech and onstage interview with author Brant Pinvidic

Thank God, he got derailed. If he ever became president, he would have bent over 360 degrees in all directions to accommodate every possible interest group, except regular conservatives. If he faced impeachment, he would have rolled over.

"Civility," in ¡Jeb's! World, means dropping trou and bending over when the leftists "demand," even if you are in the majority. It also means ignoring the fact that it's only the Pubbies "crossing the aisle" in the name of "civility," and never the leftists doing the crossing. ¡Jeb! is a perfect example of a milquetoast politician, someone who doesn't have the gonads to actually fight for what he wants, who then butts in and gives unwanted advice on how to run things to those who DID fight and win.

For the Bushes, civility in politics means playing by the Swamp's rules. All this touchy feely reaching across the aisle and then taking gut punches from the Dems and media without ever fighting back means they don't just look weak, they are weak. The Bushes just can't stand that President Trump has been 10xs more successful at pushing through a Conservative agenda without having to play the silent, long suffering doormat. They and many others don't get that his aggressive strong leadership is the reason for his success.

His brother smiled benevolently while the press and the entire democrat party hurled every insult imaginable at him. If that's Jeb(!)'s definition of civility, it is no wonder that he received two percent of the vote in the primaries. I voted for Donald Trump not because of any inclinations towards sainthood, but because he is a fighter and loves our country.

The Bushes took conservatives for granted because they thought they had nowhere else to go and would hold their noses and vote for a Bush as the lesser of two evils. You could see it from the start in Heb's campaign - he was already tacking left, thinking he had the nomination in the bag because of his $100 million plus war chest and the "fractured" conservative field. I'm grateful every day that Trump cleaned Heb's clock. Let the Bush family seethe - they played that game one too many times.

In Braveheart, Mel Gibson's character tells Robert the Bruce, "They will follow you if you just LEAD them". I have been saying this about Republicans since then. DJT leads. Jeb and that ilk weren't leaders. They were managers, governing by consensus with their rivals. Consensus decision making is always lowest common denominator, something for everyone, but not much. But the Dems play one sided negotiations. At best, Jeb's style only put a temp stop to the leftward drive. We need leadership that rolls it back and drives us rightward

When there has been an ongoing coup attempt against our President for 3 years, fraudulent FISA's issued, spying, SWAT arrests, personal client attorney client privilege overturned, double jeopardy laws overturned, personal violent attacks and insults, 24/7 lies, sabotage, criminal activities---all by the left. No, I am not going to be civil to the left, quite the opposite. It is time to confront the left and full blast! Forget the formal English. Tell them what you really think about them!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." -- President Teddy Roosevelt, "The Man in the Arena"

Speaking as a long time Conservative Republican voter......I am tired of the civil, fight losing, "moderate" wing of the party. I voted for the two Bushes as the best of a bad thing and sat through 12 years of Democrats denying their legitimacy as president. At last we have president who, however crudely, fights back from beginning to end and takes laps after winning time after time after time. I don't want smooth and polite Republicans who agree with the Democrats. I want a Republican any Republican who will look them in the eye and spit in it when deserved. Who calls the lying sacks of horse manure out for being lying sacks of horse manure. The corruptocrats for lining their own pockets and the pockets of their families with money at a cost to the Nation.

When Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg touted support from African American comedian and actor Keegan-Michael Key last week, his campaign was forced just hours later to clarify that the actor had not officially endorsed the former South Bend mayor, telling reporters he only sought to "encourage early voting and voter registration." Key appeared with Buttigieg on Saturday to drum up voter support at his Henderson, Nevada field office.

When a CNN host pressed Sanders' campaign press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, on the issue during a Tuesday morning interview, Gray called the question "reminiscent" of "smear and skepticism campaigns" like the racist birtherism conspiracy concerning former President Barack Obama's birthplace.

Republicans in the Senate are expected to swiftly reject the bill, however, continuing a legacy of partisan sparring over the District of Columbia that has been going on for more than two centuries.

WASHINGTON—House Democrats are grappling with whether to pursue further investigations of President Trump following his acquittal in the Senate, facing both an election in nine months and fresh White House actions that they say demand scrutiny. Democrats want to look into whether the president improperly influenced the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for a Trump confidant, casting Mr. Trump as emboldened by the end of the impeachment process. At the same time, party leaders are eager to focus on pocketbook issues for voters, such as health care, and Democrats are wary of launching another drawn-out fight with the White House that
