Jeb Bush Versus Marco Rubio: The Status Quo Undercard

ESTABLISHMENT POLITICIANS AT EACH OTHER’S THROATS … Former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio – one of the Sunshine State’s current U.S. Senators – are in a pitched battle right now for the support of the “Republican” establishment.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio – one of the Sunshine State’s current U.S. Senators – are in a pitched battle right now for the support of the “Republican” establishment.

You know … the dwindling percentage of the GOP electorate that hasn’t figured out its party is a scam.

Bush was supposed to be the status quo’s guy, but Rubio has been coming on strong of late within this narrowing universe of voters who might as well have “Kick Me” signs taped to their backs.

Anyway …

While Rubio has some momentum in the battle to be Washington’s latest faux conservative, serial appeaser – does he have the money to keep up with the Bush machine?

“Bush, with four months to go before the lead-off Iowa caucuses, enters the fall with a distinct advantage over his one-time protege,” a recent Associated Press report noted.

In fact Bush and the super-PAC supporting his candidate – Right to Rise – have launched a massive $50 million television blitz that will keep him on the air continuously in early-voting states.

Rubio?  His campaign and the super-PAC supporting it – Conservative Solutions – have reserved considerable television time, but haven’t yet raised the money to pay for it.

Ruh-roh …

Meanwhile we are receiving reports that the background sparring between these two campaigns is really ramping up … with operatives from both sides launching all sorts of fresh intrigues against the other (including here in early-voting South Carolina).

Stay tuned … the Palmetto State’s reputation for dirty politics appears to be secured this cycle.  It’s only a matter of time before the mud flow (no, not that mud flow) starts in earnest.

Why are you liberals fixated on squabbles among non-starters in the GOP….while you are NOW stuck (as per the CNN-Hillary Coronation Debate) with a Nominee who could end up being indicted? And even if she’s not, she is so personally repulsive, not even a Billion-Dollar Industrial Media Complex can save her.

You’re desperate not to admit that you have ONE SHOT, and that’s Hillary, now. So you talk about the low-percenters in the Republican Party.

Wow it SUCKS to be you. But even you have to concede by now…YOU DESERVE IT, AFTER THE DISASTER OBAMA HAS BEEN FOR OUR NATION.

Got to tell ya I went between laughing and crying last night as I watched these American hating,evil socialists denigrate this great nation and put forward their plans for the ultimate destruction of the greatest republic God ever created.How did the nation sink so low in just a matter of a decade?

Looking middle America right in the eyes and telling them we are going to take your wealth and redistribute it to illegal criminals.Free college and Obamacare .Sanders fomenting racial hatred and division between all classes of people-saying that blacks and hispanics have no jobs while a black president occupies the wH.He is truly the George McGovern of the 1970’s.

Hillary CAN”T win and they know it.Problem for them is Obama and the Clinton Mafia have destroyed the Democrat Party.They are counting on illegal immigration and a path to citizenship to carry them forward. Our nominee must say NO.Never.

TARevolution October 14, 2015 at 9:29 am

I agree. If any voter in this country, is so stupid to even vote for one of those ignorant, backward and hateful Democrats, we have lost our country.

Even if you never want to work again, or if you are sure the MAN is out to get you, or if you fear being attacked by animals, all the Democrat Party will do is make sure we are a WORSE off, less safe, poor and soulless nation.

The Democrat Party is the epitome of depravity, failure and misery. No one should want anything they are peddling, unless you are a selfish, hateful, counter-productive TAKER, like their candidates are.

flip October 14, 2015 at 9:35 am

Yes.The socialists on FitsNews know what you say is true and why they are all hiding this morning.

I watched the debate with Dems last night and the were shamed by those candidate.

Did you see Hillary didn’t even get that Bernie was attacking her about the emails and thought he was covering for her?

TARevolution October 14, 2015 at 10:10 am

I saw liberal friends on FB expressing relief because Hillary separated herself, and solidified her coronation.

I think it was a least of the Evils thing. But if Joe Jumps, I will LMAO at the train wreck that will ensue.

shifty henry October 14, 2015 at 10:42 am

“Jumpin’ Joe Biden” — Hillary has said privately that she refuses to be on any stage with him because she heard that he is a master-debater….

Rocky Verdad October 14, 2015 at 1:14 pm

Yeah, we suck. Probably couldn’t select a Speaker if we had to. Or pass a budget, or avoid default, or stop gay marriage, or Obamacare. Hey, what did your party (dead party now) accomplish this year – – – oh right – – – – nada.

flip October 14, 2015 at 9:12 am

Wasting time on Bush.He will not be nominee.Rubio or Carson will be.Trump prefers Carson if he is not nominee but would support Rubio.

Immigration is the ONLY policy that matters in 2016.Trump has defined that issue in a way Americans can understand.If you want to be the Republican nominee in 2016 you will be clear a Wall will be built and NO Amnesty/path to citizenship.

If you watched the debate last night the Democratic Socialist Party is desperate for illegal voters-offering them free college and Obamacare.They can’t win without them.

Many good Republicans October 14, 2015 at 12:09 pm

I like Rubio. But he has to worry about the way he has expressed himself on immigration. Any Republicans who even sounds like he agrees w/ Obama or the the Democrats, is toast.

Obama’s failure w/ immigration is a Gold Bar to the GOP. Don’t give it back to them.

Rocky Verdad October 14, 2015 at 9:24 am

The fight within the Dead Party. So entertaining. The GOP is dead. It’s gone. It’s 40 Freedumb Caucus guys, and 207 independent un-affiliated Congressmen. RIP GOP!!!

You watched the END of the Democrat Party last night.I watched the debate with family and several LIBERAL Jewish friends within the community.

They thought Hillary looked deranged and had NO interest in the Democrat Party plan of stealing their wealth and redistributing it to illegals for college tuition and Obamacare.Frankly they have given up on the 2016 election HOWEVER in fairness Patrick Murphy(D) (defeated Allen West in a Florida house seat) is well liked by those in both parties and may pick up Rubio’s seat.

I thought Martin O’Malley was Fits boy (read several articles on him here).
He proposed getting rid of electricity,gas and oil by 2050 and going 100% green energy.Wind and solar ONLY.

You can’t make this shit up.

TARevolution October 14, 2015 at 10:07 am

I think FITS does tend to lean toward White (Sanford-like) Males in his ideology…They can push liberalism, and make you think they are one of you…I think is the tactic there.

erneba October 14, 2015 at 11:39 am

the Republicans debated, you had ten people on stage that were
competing with each other for the nomination for the Republican
candidate. I was left with the impression after watching the Democrat
debate that the four men(?) were auditioning for a job within a future
Clinton Presidential Administration, ambassadorship, cabinet post, high
level advisor, etc.
It was all over when Sanders pleaded with the voters for forgiveness concerning Hillary’s e-mails and other lawlessness.

GOP is real debate winner October 14, 2015 at 12:05 pm

Good assessment. I think the BIG winner was the GOP nominee.

If that is the best they have, it will be hard for the Republicans to mess it up.

erneba October 14, 2015 at 1:05 pm

I don’t care how Hillary polled after the debate. She has been proven, in the last six months, to be the most untrustworthy individual in either party that is running for President. The MSM and establishment is trying to keep her head above water, but just can’t convince the general public that she is to be trusted.
She won’t recover, and the upcoming hearings will kill any chance that she was still hoping she had.

flip October 14, 2015 at 1:43 pm

Outstanding observation.She may have eased some of the fears within the Democrat Party debating 3 socialists last night however that doesn’t change the fact two-thirds of the country don’t trust her.She can’t over come that.
I watched the debate with a room full of Jewish liberals last night. Even the ones that said they would probably vote for her said they can’t stand to look at her or hear her speak.

erneba October 14, 2015 at 2:06 pm

And there has been further observations, items you will not hear on the NEWS or read in the paper.
Biden will not run, because he is too closely associated with the Obama administration. If he got on the ticket and lost the 2016 Presidential race, it would be viewed as a repudiation of Obama and himself. Both, Obama and Biden, leaving gracefully at the end of the current term, without Biden running, could be a preemptive measure to save face for the two of them. Obama has been underwater in the polls for months and some of that could be translated to Biden. Just keep an eye on how many times Hillary will call on Obama to help her with the campaign, she knows the score with the current administration. She will probably run against him more than she will praise him.
Of course, you can make the same case for Hillary, but if she is able to separate herself from Obama, she figures she has a chance. Biden can’t do that, he is in there, with Obama till the end.

vicupstate October 14, 2015 at 1:07 pm

The top candidates for the GOP are all neophytes that the GOP establishment will NEVER let win. They will gladly support Clinton or Biden (he probably won’t even run), before letting Trump or Carson or Fiorina get int he White House.

The GOP Civil War is well underway and not even at ‘Antietam’ yet.

The Benghazi panel has been exposed as a partisan witch hunt. Hillary had a bad few weeks, but her luck has definitely turned. If she does as well at the Benghazi hearing as she did last night, she will be officially back on track.

So when do we get to see a picture of Marco’s black love child?

Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson is close to writing a huge check to Marco, with other billionaire ‘john’s’ following in tow.

Of course, Jeb’s millions haven’t bought him love yet, so maybe it won’t help.

OMG, do we really have to put up with Flip Big T talking to TARevoution Big T all day. Can the powers that be not put this total nut back in his cage. We are full blown Sybil at this point. The man is deranged. He is carrying on entire conversations with himself, even going so far as to create imaginary scenarios where he has liberal Jewish friends. I mean really. Who in their right mind believes this racist nut has Jewish friends. Would anyone hang out with this guy if they were not locked in a room with him. This guy needs inpatient psychiatric help. He is beyond outpatient care.

And for those of you who think its funny to encourage his delusions, for the rest of our sake please please stop. You just have to totally ignore nuts like this or they will prattle on forever using different names; believing people actually listen to what they are saying. There are probably only twelve posts on this entire chain that are not the same nutty guy and a couple of them are suspect.
