“Jeb Bush’s saddest moments”

One could believe that from birth to his current age covers that statement.


#3

Bush is Fredo.


#4

he took the ring to Mordor?


#5

I still say if someone held a gun to my head and said you must vote for one of the Republicans running, I’d choose Bush.


#6

Please, no Bush Co #3.


#7

That says all you need to say about the quality of the other candidates.

(I’d probably say Kasich, but Ohioans here have assured me he’s full of shit)


#8

Exactly


#9

When he drops out, watch for the kiss from W. “Ya broke my heart, Jeb.”


#10

So there’s a “Jeb as saddest turtle” meme somewhere?

The very last bit was the saddest…

Jeb: “the best news of the day was my mom finally told me i was her favorite!”
Mom: “you mean of all the children?”
Jeb: “yeah”
Mom: “Uh…NO.”

…so sad.

The music makes this! But I’m willing to bet a more dedicated producer could dig up a few even more amusing pathetic moments.


#13

I did not know he was Catholic (re: “rosary beads” led me to look it up).

 

Anyway, I’d much rather have any of the Bushes over Trump.


#14

So if someone held a gun to your head and said “vote for one Republican candidate”, which would you choose? The slate of Republican candidates is a total shitshow, but if my life depended on it I would probably vote for Bush too.

Fortunately, I don’t think any of them can win.


#15

Jeb was supposed to be the president before Obama but Georgie tested better with the public.
Even mocking this sack gives the theatre of elections credibility. Slaves have no say. Look past the puppets.

Why Bernie’s Proposals Would Spur Economic Growth
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2016
A few days ago, Neel Kashkari – now president of the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis, who was the senior Treasury Department official in the George W. Bush and Obama administrations helping to save the big Wall Street banks – said “I believe the biggest banks are still too big to fail and continue to pose a significant, ongoing risk to our economy,” and called for them to be broken up. “The question is whether we as a country have the courage to actually take action now.”

That seems to me to be the question on a lot of fronts. Our health costs continue to rise and are about to soar as boomers need more health care. A single-payer system is necessary to restrain those costs and provide the care people need. Anyone who still harbors doubts should take a look at these studies: http://www.pnhp.org/facts/single-payer-system-cost .

It’s the same with widening inequality and structural discrimination.

Failure to take action on the biggest banks, a single-payer plan, widening inequality, and discrimination will almost certainly harm the economy. We can’t afford another near-meltdown of Wall Street. Health care costs continue to be a huge drain on the economy. Widening inequality is robbing the vast middle class of the purchasing power it needs to keep the economy growing. And structural discrimination is making it hard for many Americans to be successful and productive members of our society.

As Bernie Sanders has said, taking action on all these fronts would therefore spur growth, employment, and median incomes. (In this respect, I disagree with the views of four former chairs of the Council of Economic Advisors from the Clinton and Obama administrations.)

The question is whether we as a country have the courage to actually take action now.

Sadly, I think you might be right. It’s one of the reasons I’m not all that worried about Trump. I don’t think he could cause that much damage because he won’t be allowed to. By the same token, I don’t think Sanders can accomplish most of what he’s promising.

It’s the only reason I can think of for why there’s so little change when a new president takes office.


#18

Yes. At 18 Kasich was worshiping Nixon. That is all you need to know.


#19

But if a gun were held to your head and you had to cast a ballot at the Republican convention for one of the current candidates, which would you pick?


#20

I’d take the bullet, for my country, besides I’ve done just that before and lived to tell the tale.
