Jeb Bush's campaign continues its free fall as protesters interrupt speech in front of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Courtesy of CBS News: 

As Jeb Bush expanded on his support for a path to citizenship for some immigrants, immigration protesters cut him off with chants of "No hope without our vote!" 

Bush tried to make himself heard over the protesters, so that he could talk about his support for the children of undocumented immigrants, known as "DREAMers." He told the audience at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, "I believe that Dream Act kids should have a path to citizenship...I've been consistently for it and I'll continue to be consistently for it irrespective of what the political ramifications of that are." 

But Bush, like most of the Republican presidential field, does favor securing the border before taking action on the millions of undocumented immigrants currently in the U.S. The Associated Press reported that the Texas Organizing Project planned the protests that disrupted Bush's speech. 

The group's communications director, Mary Moreno, told the AP that protesters wanted to call attention to "the hostile atmosphere being created by the GOP field of presidential candidates," and she said the Republican candidates wanted to "militarize the border" when there are already thousands of border patrol agents on the southern border.

If I had the capacity to feel sorry for Jeb Bush, which I don;t, I think I would be feeling sorry for Jeb Bush right about now.

The guy had this whole thing mapped out.

He had the name. He had the money, He had the political connections.

What he didn't have is a personality, or the ability to run a coherent campaign where his foot does not  end up him his mouth every two or three campaign stops.

At this point I don't think that it's inconceivable that Bush will drop out.

It won't happen today, but it certainly could happen, and it could happen earlier than anybody would predict.

    What's even sadder about Jeb! is that he's not able to get his foot in his mouth with the smooth and elegant ease of MItt Romney. Fails there too.

    His brother stood on the rubble pile at ground zero ... standing on the remains of over 2000 people .. and Jeb! wants us to believe his brother KEPT US SAFE.... SMDH

    He's definitely a Bush all right. The kids in that family are all dumb as rocks and crooked as snakes.

    why would he drop out? he has over 100 mil in his pac and more coming in. and the party changed all the rules to favor him at the convention no matter who wins primary contests. i predict he will stay in, limit the damage, and be selected at the convention.

    "He had the name"
    OK, you can stop right there. America knows this family has caused enough death and destruction here and abroad to keep Them! out of the white house for decades to come.

    Some people are so illiterate and really disrespectful to their spouse. Just chill.

  7. When he ends up a statistical no-show in both Iowa
    and New Hampshire, the book will be closed on Jebby.

    I get the feeling that, having seen what his father and brother endured during their presidency, being president is the last thing he wants. I think he's being forced 'by the powers that be' to run. He lacks the necessary passion, his wife, who has been described as an introvert, is quite possibly holding him back. On stage he appears to lack confidence, and his grins remind me of someone who's been caught peeking in the girls locker room.

      His son George Prescott Bush wants him to run... for the obvious reason.

    Election fraud can still save the day for Jeb! as it did for his brother. Check out Dr. Beth Clarkson and election fraud (not "voter" fraud). She is a mathematician at Wichita State University who is suing none other than Republican vote suppressor Kris Kobach for access to Kansas election records and voting machine tapes. There seem to be "statistical anomalies favoring Republicans in counts coming from large precincts across the country". She rechecked the findings of Francois Choquette and James Johnson who, in 2012, found "strong statistical evidence of election manipulation in Iowa, New Hampshire, Arizona, Ohio, Oklahoma, Alabama, Louisiana, Wisconsin, West, Virginia and Kentucky". Dr. Clarkson did not believe their findings until she re-checked them and then found additional data from elections that they had not analyzed and found the same discrepancies.
    As Donald would say, This is YUUUUUGE!!

    This is from The Wichita Eagle, April 1, 2015 (it is no joke)

    This could explain Rove's insistence to Megyn Kelly on Fox that Obama did not win Ohio during the last election night coverage.
    He trusted that the machines would take care of the result. I am convinced that Bush did not win either election because voting results and exit polls did not match up. I hope that Dr. Clarkson will be the Republican's undoing. btw, Koch brothers, in 2013, bought a company named "Molex" which makes connectors for Diebold and ES&S voting machines. Coinkydink???

    Thanks to Rawstory for The Dr. Clarkson story

      Dr. Clarkson should check Florida, too. And possibly Illinois.

      And Ohio for sure.

      Well if they did it in one place they'd do it everywhere!

    He's not dropping out. As mentioned above, he's sitting on 100 mil. He's hoping Trump finally screws the pooch, and he'll be the savior.

    Not gonna happen.....

    I hope when John Ellis Bush drops out of the race his entire extended family is there for support. You know them: Bar, Poppy, Sleepy, Dopey, Sneezy, Skeezy, Dufus, Grumpy, Sleezy, Druggy, Crazy and DoDo (the smart brother)

    JEB! has fallen to 6th place in Iowa.This man is a walking gaffe machine. He has 0 personality. He Can't think on his feet and is divorced from reality.He is the"Smart" Bush?

    No, Jeb connotes excitement won't drop out - he has too much money and he wants to sit in the Oval Office before Poppy Bush bites the dust. Jeb connotes excitement was always thought by the parents as the smart one who would be president; then the dry drunk jumped in first cause he was not going to get his dream job ( baseball commissioner). Rove convinced the dry drunk they could pull it off - they could convince the right people (Christian conservatives) that the dry drunk was I deep a born again Christian, sober and committed to cleaning up the White House. 'Merica fell for it but not entirely: without little brother's help and Katherine Harris, the dry drunk wouldn't have ascended into the Oval Office. Now it's Jeb connotes excitement's turn to fuck up the country. God help us all.
    P.S. Do you know when the dry drunk bought the ranch in Crawford Texas? Do some checking. It's an 'interesting' story.

      I'm not so sure he didn't fall off the wagon a few times while in office, hence the 7.5 year vacation.

    2. Anonymous11:47 AM

      Thanks- I looked up why he bought the ranch and it is very interesting. Spin. Reminds me of someone in Alaaaasssskkkka.

    Keeping in mind, the GOP has stolen elections before, I don't know who on the ballot terrifies me more Jeb!, who's foreign policy is really his brother's therefore Dick Cheney's or The Donald, who is so busy blowing hot air, he has no policies except for building a wall, with a door.

    Also too, watched The Donald on Colbert last night and he gave his memorized answer to the Obama is a Muslim question. I hope the media keeps asking and tells him he owes America an answer since we are "interviewing him" for the position of pres.
