Jeb Bush:

"All too often, we're associated with being anti-everything. Way too many people believe that Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on."

Gee, ya think?

Why would that be? Republicans? Extreme and small-minded? Anti-everything? Via a post I wrote back in 2011 during the Wisconsin protests:

The GOP has no foresight or grasp of the health of our planet and wants to do away with the Environmental Protection Agency.

The GOP wants to do away with unions.

The GOP wants to do away with the middle class.

The GOP wants to do away with the Democratic party.

The GOP wants to do away with free speech and expression.

The GOP wants to do away with human dignity.

The GOP wants to do away with civility toward anyone who is not like them, meaning white and/or Christian.

The GOP wants to do away with health care for anyone but the wealthiest AmericansEspecially women’s health care.

The GOP wants to do away with allowing two people who love each other to marry each other.

The GOP wants to do away with freedom of choice.

The GOP wants to do away with taxes for the very wealthy, not to mention productive spending and job growth at the expense of the health and welfare of this country.

We need to do away with the extreme demands of the GOP.  We have no choice… but that’s exactly what they want.

Which brings us to 2012, when Mitt Romney famously said, “It would be helpful to be Latino.”

And Bobby Jindal said, “If we want people to like us, we have to like them first.”

Karl Rove’s advice to his fellow Republicans was just don’t *sound* intolerant.

And according to a Republican strategy memo, “Republicans have run out of persuadable white voters.”

Which brings me to 2013, when RNC Chair Reince Priebus wants to play hero with minorities GOP hasn’t wanted to touch with a 10-foot car elevator. Check out the list of "anti-everythings" in that post.

And let's not forget the Rolling Stone piece that warned us, “Don’t be fooled” by the so-called GOP makeover. “Rarely has it been more dangerous.”

Finally, Jeb said this:

"We need to be larger than that."

Insert obvious large Republican joke here. I can't bring myself to do it. It would be too anti.

    The people are educated to the way the GOP claims one thing and does another. The people are correct. Look at how the GOP votes!

    People wouldn't think the GOP is anti-everything if they weren't. Their actions, their words, prove how little they think of large segments of the population. In addition, Jeb Bush is delusional if he thinks he is a shoo-in for the presidency. I can't see this country electing another Bush; not after the debacle caused by the last one.

    I'm hearing more and more people say Jeb Bush will come riding to the rescue of the GOP and America in 2016 as the shoe-in presidential candidate. All I can say is, not on my watch, damn it. It's about time to open the bomb bay doors and drop my precious word bomb on Jeb and the rest of his miscreant family. The good Lord willing for me to get it done, I will make a big fuss for you girls to take a gander at it.
