Here Comes Jebbie


Jebby and Dubya
The other son also rises....

Here we go again. Anyone who was still in doubt about John E. "Jeb" Bush's presidential aspirations for the year 2016 had those doubts shattered this past weekend during his media blitz on the Sunday morning talk programs. There he was plugging his new book, coming out strongly against a "path to citizenship" for illegal immigrants - a position he has strongly supported in the past. The problem is the fact that "the path", so to speak, is not supported by most of the knuckleheads who tend to vote in Republican primaries in the South and the Midwest. Watch him during the next four years as he stomps around the country during what promises to be the most comprehensive pandering campaign in the history of American electoral politics. That oughta be loads of fun to watch.

Are we really going to go down this road again? Part of me says, no, the Republicans have been seriously damaged, maybe even fatally, by the posse of criminals, halfwits and crazy people who long ago hijacked that party. It'll never happen, or at least that is what I'm trying to convince myself. Our luck couldn't possibly get that bad. And imagine how idiotic we're going to look as a country when future history books print the POTUS list:

41. Bush
42. Clinton
43. Bush 
44. Obama
45. Bush

Yikes! That would be too weird to even contemplate. Think of the semantic calisthenics that poor ol' Jeb needs to perform in the next three-and-a-half years: He'll have to transform himself from the essentially easy-going moderate, "compassionate conservative" (at least that is how he is perceived by most) into the screaming right-wing lunatic that appeals to "the base". And then, once he gets the nomination (if he gets the nomination) he then needs to move himself way back (and it's a long way back indeed) to the slightly-right-of-center. Best of luck to the dude.

"My guess is that history is going to be kind to my brother."

-Jeb Bush 

Seriously, if that gem of wisdom uttered yesterday by Jeb doesn't raise serious alarm bells nothing will. The undeniable fact of the matter is that history will not be kind to his brother. If anything, as the years go by, it will be even more apparent what a dreadful mistake this country made when they came to the collective conclusion that sending the hideous little jackass to the Executive Mansion would be a really cool idea. Jeb Bush is his brother's brother. Although it would be presumptuous to say that a Bush Administration III would be a mere mimeograph of the Bush Administration II, there are more similarities between the two than stark differences. If we are foolish enough to go back down this road in 2016, you can bet the farm that the neo-con crazies will be running our foreign policy again. Remember how nicely that worked out last time around? That was a trick question. It didn't work out nicely at all.

We should give credit where credit is due. If it was absolutely preordained that America would be cursed with a second Bush administration, it should have been the Jeb Bush Administration. He's certainly a lot smarter than brother George, that's for damned sure. It's a pretty safe bet that had he sent Dick Cheney on an errand to find a suitable running mate and Cheney had come back with a report that concluded "I AM YOUR MAN", I can just imagine Jeb pissing his pants in laughter at the very idea. No, in all fairness to Jeb, he's not one/tenth as dumb as George Dubya. That very fact, however, is not a qualification for the office of president of the United States of America. The job is just a tad more nuanced than that - or so I've been led to believe.

I can just see the reaction of the rest of the planet earth to another Bush presidency. We're already the laughingstock of western civilization, folks. Do we really need to make mattters worst? The day after King George the Second was reelected to a second (disastrous) term, a newspaper in England posed on it's front page the musical question:

"HOW CAN 59,000,000 PEOPLE BE SO STUPID?" 

How indeed. It was a damned good question when you think about it for a minute or two. Any takers?

Theodore Roosevelt
The most impressive person to seek the GOP nomination last year was Jon Huntsman. In fact I'll go as far as to say that he was the most impressive Republican to run in a primary since Theodore Roosevelt one-hundred-and one years ago. He could have beaten Obama easily in a general election. Unfortunately, given the extremist bent of that party in recent years, he never had a chance. If the Republicans are smart, they will nominate Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey in four years. He's got a seventy-five percent approval rating in his state and he's also one of the most popular politicians in the country. They would be fools not to make him their standard bearer in 2016. Of course that's never gonna happen for obvious reasons. C'est la vie.

Hear me out: If the American people are ever again stupid enough to send another member of that disgusting family to the White House, we'll deserve everything that happens to us - EVERYTHING. Trust me, we don't want to go down that road again. Call it a silly hunch on my part.

Shrub: The Short and Happy Career of George W. Bush
by Molly Ivins

In 1999, a full year before the "selection" (by the US Supreme Court) of George W. Bush, the late, lamented Molly Ivins tried to warn us what was in store. We didn't listen. On the eve of his second campaign, she wrote, Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America. In the introduction she said, "If y'all had read the first book, we wouldn't have had to write this one." Sadly, we didn't listen to her second warning.

Damn, I miss Molly Ivins. Here is a link to a eulogy I wrote to her six years ago on the night she died:

Tom,

I know one should never underestimate ones opponent but I seriously doubt Jebs candidacy will ever get off the ground and if by some stroke of genius he does get it off the ground it will quickly be shot down by the Rubios and Cruzs of the Republican Party which the extreme right wingers who run the GOP will embrace long before they go with another Bush. Lets be honest with one another the extremists on both sides are running the two major parties which is why the bulk of us feel disenfranchised by the process as we currently know it.

Hope alls well,

Tom V

Oh I don't know lets think about George Soros and all his money er PACs for starters. Lets keep the debate honest shall we. There are probably as many hard working main stream Dems as here are hard working Reps who feel there party has lost there way and left them behind with no other alternatives other than going across the aisle which I'm sure you know dedicated party members are reluctant to do in either party.

Tom V,
I take it you consider yourself to be a moderate?

So could you please let us know how Soros is "running the party"? And could also share what you feel makes him "extremist"?

I'm curious if the extremism on the left compares to the Right's voter suppression and electoral rigging in states that vote democratic. They are working to allow the majority of democratic voters be overruled by a minority of Republican voters.

We can all understand a war on democracy is extreme, so what is the left doing that is comparable?

Also many of us on the left see both major parties owing more allegiance to Corporate interests and Wall Street than to Main Street and the public good. In a system where money is represented more than people, what is the option other than a dose of real change?

Thanks.

Tom V.
It would be better if you, not me or Jack, made your point. And without the appearance of false equivalence. What example of extremism from Soros or the Left, compares to the subversion of democracy by the Right? You need to substantiate this, or your point is unsupported..

We really get a lot of this "both sides do it" from the corporate media. And they have the corporate bias.

Or are you saying that this is the unbiased truth from the corporate media?

Is so, then support your contention, please. If you say Soros and Kochs are equally extreme in their influence on our government, you need to provide evidence. What is as extreme as undermining and suppressing democracy? And is this equal from the Left and Right?

Make your point and support it, please. That's all I ask.

The Bush family has been horrible for the US . A few of the scandals that made millions for Jeb’s relatives are as follows:

Grandfather Prescott --supported the Nazis buy selling them oil

Father ( Poppy)-- sold arms for the hostages; Sold drugs to buy arm for the Contras and made money with the CIA heroin trades

Brother Neil -- bankrupted Silverado S&L during the S&L scandal

Brother G W – made a ton of money from Halliburton by falsely leading the US into bogus wars

Jeb is responsible for purging many democrats from the FL voting roster along with Katherine Harris . He had the state police pull over minorities on their way to the polls, and created long lines in the dem. Districts. There were many voter irregularities. I know a person that was waiting to vote when it was announced over the loudspeaker that Bush had won the state of FL.

Michigan Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee has been in Congress for a little more than two months, and today the leader of the free world gave him a gentle ribbing about just how new he is to Capitol Hill.

At a closed-door meeting between President Barack Obama and House Democrats, Kildee introduced himself as a freshman, to which Obama said, “Wow, you’re really classing up the place then.”

Kildee then proceeded to ask what one person described as a somewhat “long-winded” question about the importance of creating jobs for his economically distraught district.

“I can tell you’re a freshman because you didn’t pay much attention to the State of the Union,” Obama joked. “I talked about that.”

Amid the resulting laughter, House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra of California then offered to provide Kildee a printout of the speech.

Obama was referring to his $1 billion proposal for 15 manufacturing “innovation centers,” the details of which are still somewhat hazy.

Actually, though, the joke was on Obama: On Wednesday, Kildee had met with the White House legislative affairs team about the innovation centers proposal, so he was quite familiar with it.

And his question was broader, about what types of reforms are necessary to reform decaying urban centers like Flint, Mich., which Kildee represents.

“Dan wasn’t specifically talking about innovation centers in his question,” a spokesman said.

Latvia's Prime Minister hit back on Friday at Paul Krugman's criticism of Latvia's austerity measures, saying the Nobel Prize-winning economist has "difficulty admitting his own mistake."

"Krugman famously said back in December 2008 that Latvia is the new Argentina, it will inevitably go bankrupt, and now he has difficulty apparently admitting he was wrong and so he tries to seek some problems in how Latvia is recovering from the economic crisis," Latvian leader Valdis Dombrovskis told CNBC in an interview at the EU summit in Brussels.

"But I think that the mere fact that for the last two years we are enjoying rapid growth shows that it was probably the right strategy."

Latvia's government undertook a heavy dose of austerity after a credit boom led to an economic crash in 2008. The government undertook the biggest fiscal adjustment drive of any country in the European Union and gross domestic product (GDP) plunged 24 percent in 2009.

This commitment to fiscal prudence, and Latvia's subsequent growth of 5.5 percent in 2011 and 4.5 percent in 2012, has led the country to be feted by proponents of austerity, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

However, Krugman, who is known for his strictly anti-austerity stance, has remained consistent in his criticism of the Baltic state.

Chinese doctors have performed more than 330m abortions since the government implemented a controversial family planning policy 40 years ago, according to official data from the health ministry.

China’s one-child policy has been the subject of a heated debate about its economic consequences as the population ages. Forced abortions and sterilisations have also been criticised by human rights campaigners such as Chen Guangcheng, the blind legal activist who sought refuge at the US embassy in Beijing last year.

WHAT WOULD FDR DO?

Frustration over a delayed bailout turned to incredulity and anger in Cyprus on Saturday as islanders woke up to news that savers would be footing part of the bill to avert national bankruptcy.

In a radical departure from previous euro zone rescues for Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain, finance ministers struck a deal to lend the indebted island 10 billion euros ($13 billion). But in return, depositors would have to forfeit up to 10 percent of their savings.

Small queues of people gathered at cash machines across the island to withdraw money on Saturday, while co-operative credit societies had to shut to prevent a run on deposits.

A levy of 9.9 percent on deposits exceeding 100,000 euros, and of 6.7 percent on anything below that, is expected to generate 5.8 billion euros for Cyprus, which first applied for a bailout in June 2012.

The levy must be ratified by parliament before banks open on Tuesday, since Monday is a public holiday.

A St. Patrick's Day toast to our trolls:

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” ― Isaac Asimov

 
At 3:18 PM, Anonymous James said...

Taking a break from the Us Vs. Them politics,here is an excerpt from an article in the Dr. Mercola's website.


Story at-a-glance

Two prominent dairy associations have filed a petition with the FDA requesting the agency “amend the standard of identity” for milk and 17 other dairy products to provide for the use of any safe and suitable sweetener as an optional ingredient—including non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame to deceive you by not having to indicate its use on the label
The FDA already allows the dairy industry to use the unmodified “milk” label for products that contain added sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Because of this, the petitioners maintain that “consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners if the labels do not include such claims”
Aspartame is the most dangerous food additive on the market today, accounting for over 75 percent of adverse reactions reported to the FDA, including seizures and death
Methyl alcohol is metabolized differently in the human body compared to other animals, and is FAR more toxic in humans which is why studies have trouble nailing down the hazards related to aspartame
Methyl alcohol, after it is taken up by the body as a “Trojan Horse” into susceptible tissues like the brain, converts rapidly into formaldehyde. This causes severe damage to proteins and DNA that can contribute to many serious and chronic diseases, such as cancer, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and multiple sclerosis

I'd say it validates Asimov's quote to believe he was talking about such educated people, and not the "Muslim Marxist" and "death panel" believing dupes who think liberals are commies and ACORN stole the election for Obama.

Now that is ignorance on a vast and frightening scale.
