Jaw Dropping Nonsense – Erick Erickson: “Jeb Bush is The Most Conservative Republican Governor”…

Erick Erickson became the center of the GOP discussion this week with his disinvite of Donald Trump from the Red State gathering of political candidates. In addition, Erickson did not invite Dr. Ben Carson saying: “he’d seen him appear at charity benefits and talk about himself“.

So Erickson takes to the stage to introduce his friend: “I love this guy“, “the most conservative governor“, Jeb Bush.  Watch:

Jeb Bush, “the most conservative governor”;  surely soon to be followed by: Nancy Pelosi, the most open-minded democrat.

        Absolutely. He destroyed FL higher ed. He and Phil Handy, his little buddy from NJ, had a layover at MCO and sat in the lounge and outlined how to destroy the Board of Regents on a cocktail napkin. He outsourced all state personnel functions to a dysfunctional contractor from OH which was headed by a close personal friend. In order to qualify, the OH firm has a “data center” in JAX.

        There was a state legislator, I forget his name, that said after the first two years of the outsourced project that he would vote to go back to the old way, but they had sunk so much money into the contractor that they really couldn’t do that. Juan E. Boosh also outsourced cleaning of state buildings to firms that hire only Spanish speakers (even in N. FL). Oh, he also said he was going to balance the budget. He did. By increasing taxes and shrinking FL already way too small to serve the volume state government. He’s a piece of work, is Juan Boosh. Vote for him at your peril.

    Wow, Erick is delusional. I am thinking it is better that Trump isn’t there after all. He wouldn’t have been well received anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I love Trump and still want him to win but I have to admit that I am angry with him right now. He is making it harder and harder for me to defend him. I know that “Trump is Trump” but I am somewhat surprised at his lack of discipline. I am angrier with Megyn and Fox News but I just think he could have handled this whole thing better and come out of it looking like the better person. This whole thing has me feeling sick and I am starting to go wobbly.

      I was “disinvited” from commenting at RedState, for having the audacity to disagree with one of the arrogant, power-hungry moderators regarding the legal basis of disparate impact theory. I apparently crossed the line by citing supreme court cases that rejected disparate impact theory, and promptly had my commenting privileges revoked. I was a member/contributor for over a decade, but I’ve not been back since. It’s their sandbox, and they can set the rules however they like.

Curious, I scrolled the the comments below (which had now been closed, and were being redirected to “Twitter”) and saw that more than a few had been chastised by the mods, deleted, or banned. Sounds a tad “over moderated” to me.

      Stone, who was brought on at the start of Trump’s campaign. Sharp elbows guy w/ dodgy background. Goes back to Nixon campaign. Trump says he was canned for using the position for his personal gain. Stone says after the Kelly flap, he left due to Trump being distracted off of the mission.

      I believe Trump. Why? Because on Tues or Wednesday, this guy tweeted about two minority reporters being ‘quota’ hires. Geraldo then chimed in w/ threats should he appear on Fox. Then, after the termination, he’s in studio on CNN. Says nice things about Trump, but subtly tries to undermine him.

      My guess is that Stone was bought for a higher price by someone else, to create problems. I find the timing of those inappropriate tweets and departure very curious.

      Two things I’ve learned about Trump from regular Apprentice watchers and listening to everything he’s said in interviews since his campaign began: he HATES liars. You lie, you are out. Second, loyalty is key. One comment he had about Rubio when asked to evaluate the others, was Rubio had been incredibly disloyal to Bush.

    Considering that Ted Cruz Super-PAC is funding the Carly Fiorina Super-PAC

    Let’s Flashback to 2013:

    ….”Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO Northern California Republican who ran as a conservative to get the Republican Senate nomination in 2010, attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

    On Wednesday, saying there was “no honor” in his fight to defund Obamacare.

    Fiorina made her remarks just days after she joined the American Conservative Union, an establishment organization on the right that supports comprehensive immigration reform.

    In an appearance on CNN’s The Lead, Fiorina blamed the government shutdown on Cruz and implied that Republicans would have been better off waiving the white flag from the beginning on eliminating Obamacare.

    “There’s no honor in charging a hill that you know you can’t take, only casualties, although Ted Cruz maybe got name recognition and money along the way,” she said. “But President Obama wanted this shutdown. And Ted Cruz played right into his hands.”

    Fiorina said she felt “badly for [House Speaker] Rep. John Boehner ” and emphasized that “this is Ted Cruz and President Obama’s shutdown.” “Everybody could see this train wreck coming,” Fiorina said”….

    • Fascinating. Looks to me like they’re saying “anybody but Trump, and we’ve simply GOT to get these hopeless conservatives back onto somebody who builds to Jeb – or, if all planning fails and one of the chumps actually get into the White House, it’s somebody who can work with our global partners (WINK WINK).”

      I think they realize that Jeb is not taking, despite hopelessly inflated UnipartyMedia numbers, and that they now have two problems.

      The first: they need to get conservatives back onto something that works to their advantage – and NOT Trump. Cruz and Carly still fit into your scheme, but even if Plan Jeb blows up for some reason, Cruz and Carly are failsafe options, because they’re malleable from Main Street to Wall Street, though each in different ways.

      But the second problem is worse. Jeb just is not building real support to match his fake starter support. The herd is not moving.

      I know you still think it’s Jeb, SD, but I think Kasich has Establishment legs, and can soak up most of Jeb’s Florida backing if they spin him right. And the debate was a definite LIVE TEST of Kasich’s ability to take Ohio, which is nearly 100% IMO (as well as test-marketing his appeal to the Florida youth and gay sectors). Good grief – I had Kasich signs out just last year. He’s been a great governor, and as the whole country saw, he’s a good neighbor to EVERYBODY.

      Maybe the plan is now a Jeb-n-John OR John-n-Jeb ticket.

      And in any case, I think the “OMG – IT’S GOING TO BE REAGAN” option is that they stick Trump, Cruz, or Fiorina (the outsider) with Kasich. Because a Bush would be just TOO obvious.

      So, if as you predicted Walker and Rubio voters go to Jeb, some might now go to Fiorina.

    Moe on Jeb Bush “the conservative”…

    “With Bush as governor, the state invested in behemoths such as Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Lehman Brothers, UBS and Prudential Financial. Those eight, which all employed George W. Bush Pioneers, received more than $1.3 billion in Florida pension money. Executives from the eight companies made a combined total of $4 million in contributions to George W. Bush’s campaigns, the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Florida between 1998 and 2006.”

    Now it’s Jeb’s turn to collect the loot…

    “According to a February Politico report, George Herbert Walker — formerly at Goldman and now at Neuberger Berman (which also received Florida pension money) — attended a $100,000-a-person fundraiser for a group backing Jeb Bush. The event was held at the home of private equity mogul Henry Kravis, also a George W. Bush Pioneer.

    CNN reported that Blackstone’s Schwarzman attended a fundraiser for Jeb Bush’s political action committee last month.

    Meanwhile, Bradford Freeman, the co-founder of Freeman Spogli — one of the companies that was involved in the New York pension scandal and also received Florida pension money — co-hosted a fundraiser for Jeb Bush in January and another event in California last month.”

    and where did Jeb go to get a no show job after he left office?

    “A majority of this paper was sold to SBA by Lehman Brothers . Bush, as the state’s top elected official, served on a three-member board that oversaw the SBA until he retired as governor in January. In August, Bush was hired as a consultant to the bank. Lehman spokesperson Kerrie Cohen, speaking on behalf of Bush, said they had no comment and would not say when the bank had sold Florida the paper. SBA did not return calls.”

    Trump should wash Jeb’s face with this info.

    Here’s my take on this Eric Erickson/Donald Trump idiocy. FOX tried their best to be rid of Trump before, during and after the debate. You still can’t go far and not hear or read the utter contempt people have for FOX, especially Megyn and Bret Baier (expected Wallace to be an a$$and even Todd Starnes is getting heat for dissing Trump…Todd Starnes for Petes sake). Now, and I really, really don’t get the whole “she had blood coming out of wherever” from Erickson except to say this. He was asked, by FOX to NOT invite Trump to his event as a means to get back at Trump. Of course, now we know Erickson doesn’t exactly like Carson either but that’s a different reason. I’m convinced FOX asked him to do this and it going to backfire on Erickson, big time. It already has for FOX.

    ““You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump continued, “blood coming out of her whatever.”..is that supposed to mean she’s on her menstrual cycle? Really? Am I missing something?

      So Walker, Rubio and Bush wanted to keep Trump out of the debates? Well, I think it’s pretty obvious who wanted Trump uninvited and EE obliged the head of the stooges Jebbie.
      Is it true 15 states can keep Trump off the ballot? I guess I need to do some researching.

      Great post, thanks for sharing. I respect Stone for strongly supporting Trump in this interview and Isounds to me like Trump camp needs a voice like this to help steer him back onto the big issues. Perhaps he and Trump can kiss and make up in the days and weeks to come.

    so, Erick is a JEB BOT. No wonder he went to the gutter to attack Trump. As Trump spox said “Only a deviant” would think Trump meant menstruating!

    Erickson is much like Megyn Kelly (and I used to like Kelly)….. the more notoriety he gains, the more full of himself he becomes. Reminds me of many too Hollywood actors.

    If I was on the ropes I would still be very choosy about who came to my defense. Poor Megyn made another big error getting involved with this nut. He will turn on her and I can’t wait. Some one articulate needs to debunk the argument all the FOX anchors are using Like Julie banderas. We had to ask tough questions….. I mean the president will have to face Dem debates, and Putin. Like they were doing trump a favor asking him hard hitting questions to warm him up like they were doing some kind of good. As far as BS goes my little nephew can come up with much better and quicker excuses. Tough questions… About Rosie…what tough…. where….Megyns skin maybe but that’s all. Reptiles the bunch of them. I used to watch FOX every day by the way…no mo hit the road jack and don’t ya come back no mo no mo.

    What in the world is making it okay for all this dirty language to be tweeted and posted along with inappropriate comments regarding feminine hygiene? I find it extremely offensive. Just because Trump made a comment that Megyn was trying to draw blood with her offensive questioning does not mean it’s okay for everybody else to put in print whatever comes to their minds.

    • Since we have no way to know what Trump meant by the word “wherever” we should not impute meaning to it. Its meaning was not made clear in its context. His critics, including the self-righteous Erickson, have made it a reference to Megyn’s cycle in order to justify their outrage over Trump’s alleged disrespect for women. It doesn’t matter to them that they don’t know what he meant.

        I don’t know much about his wife other than he met her in Mexico when they were both in their teens and she didn’t speak English when they got married and that she became a naturalized citizen 5 years after they were married and of course she was fined by customs. I’ll do some searching and see if I can find out.

          Honoring the Family Name : * Culture: ‘I’m not interested in politics,’ says Columba Bush, the President’s daughter-in-law. Still, she knows how to campaign for a cause: her native Mexico.
          July 31, 1991|MICHAEL QUINTANILLA | TIMES STAFF WRITER

          Bush knows her role as political wife and daughter-in-law–she has been married to the Bushes’ second son, Jeb, for 18 years–brings attention to her cause.

          She recalls a touching conversation she had with the First Lady about her childhood, about growing up in a divorced family and being ostracized in her Roman Catholic community because her father had abandoned them. It was 1988, during the height of the presidential campaign, and her estranged father, looking to exploit his daughter’s name, had just made the tabloids in Mexico and the United States.

          “I told my mother-in-law that I thought I wasn’t going to be able to campaign anymore. She asked me, ‘Is there a reason, Columba?’ ” Her eyes fill with tears.

          “I said, ‘Well, Mrs. Bush, it is difficult for me to speak in public about something very painful.’ She said, ‘Columba, I understand your reasons. It was not your fault that you were abandoned. If you want to campaign or if you do not, it’s OK with us. We want you to know we love you very much.’ ”

          “For three days I thought about what I was going to do,” Bush says. “This was my reality and this was my life. I realized that I had to be strong, that I had to keep on going.”

          Bush decided to continue campaigning, especially in Latino communities, where her presence and bilingual skills were highly valued. Later that year, at the Republican National Convention, she took the podium to second her father-in-law’s nomination. She had prayed to the Virgin of San Juan for strength. After much prayer and thought, she would give up her Mexican citizenship to vote for George Bush.

          “That was a difficult decision to make because up until then I didn’t see any necessity to change my citizenship. My husband wanted me to stay as a Mexican citizen, and the whole family has always respected my decision. I changed my citizenship to vote for my father-in-law.”

            This would seem to make all the bio’s I’ve ever read about Jeb a lie unless she didn’t understand she could already vote. If she became a naturalized citizen in 1979 then she didn’t need to change her citizenship to vote for her Father-in-law.

            So I guess the question remains if she’s a dual citizen or not and just when exactly she became a U.S. citizen.

            I also have read bio’s provided by Jeb that he speaks Spanish in the home, is English that hard for her?
            I’ve never given much thought about her. Maybe someone from Florida would know a little more about her citizenship and how well she speaks English.

              Oh, yeah, English IS that hard for this peon. She used to make commercials championing her special cause while Juan E. Boosh was Governor. It was PAINFUL to hear her slaughtering my father-tongue for :”Just Read Florida”….

              I knew a young French student once who told me that he couldn’t understand why we Americans put up with people garbling our language like he did. He said that in France, if people spoke French that poorly, the Frenchman spoken to would just walk away. Maybe we should start doing that as well instead of trying to figure out what these imports are saying….

    The best things that have happened in my life started as doubt and uncertainty. Even as they were being lived out, the doubt and uncertainty was still tangible in the background. That’s my feeling about Trump. He’s not perfect on a political sense, but his basic message is a strong one. And that’s unsettling for a lot of people.
