Jeb Bush Doubling Down On "I'm With Stupid" Strategy

AND THE GLOBAL INTERVENTIONISM THAT GOES WITH IT … We’ve written previously on former Florida governor Jeb Bush‘s effort to revive his flagging presidential aspirations by campaigning with his brother – former U.S president George W. Bush. We call it the “I’m With Stupid” strategy … Anyway, since Bush’s campaign…


We’ve written previously on former Florida governor Jeb Bush‘s effort to revive his flagging presidential aspirations by campaigning with his brother – former U.S president George W. Bush.

We call it the “I’m With Stupid” strategy …

Anyway, since Bush’s campaign is still struggling he’s decided to double down on “Dubya” – a.k.a. “The Deciderer.”  Specifically, the Right to Rise PAC – which inexplicably continues to back Bush despite his dismal 2.8 percent showing in early-voting Iowa – is launching a new television ad in South Carolina starring the former chief executive.

According to reporter Alex Isenstadt of Politico, who broke the story, the “W” ad will begin airing in South Carolina on Friday.

Not only that, according to Isenstadt the former president is planning to “hit the campaign trail in the state” for his brother over the coming weeks.

“The first job of the president is to protect America,” Bush (the dumb one) says in the spot.  “The next president must be prepared to lead. I know Jeb. I know his good heart and his strong backbone.”

“Jeb will unite our country,” Bush added.  “He knows how to bring the world together against terror. He knows when tough measures must be taken.  Experience and judgment count in the Oval Office. Jeb Bush is a leader who will keep our country safe.”

Really?  By warmongering all over the planet with money we don’t have?  All so we can create bigger, angrier enemies?

The same way his idiot brother did?

We thought Jeb knew better than that.

This website is (obviously) no fan of Bush 43.  In fact we ranked him as the “Worst President Ever” three months before his term ended – although the current occupant of the Oval Office is obviously No. 1 with a bullet now.

Especially if you’re black …

Still, Bush was a terrible president who championed big government at every turn … and South Carolinians suffered under him and the “Republican” Congress the same way they’ve suffered under Barack Obama, John Boehner and the current “Republican” leadership in Washington, D.C.

Frankly we’re amazed Bush (Jeb!, that is) is staying in the race.  At this point, we figured his status quo donors would have seen the writing on the wall and embraced the candidacy of the other “centrist” GOP candidate in the race – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

I proudly worked for President Bush (43) for 23 months in 99 and 2000. Knowing what I do today , I would do it all over again. The idea of a McCain administration then or in 08 almost makes me puke. 43 might not have been the best person for the job but as it turned out, with 911 and all, I think the USA made the right choice. He did what , at the time , was right for the country. It’s easy to Monday morning quarterback now, but when it was hitting the fan , we had a true leader. God bless 43.

Meanwhile, people who worked even closer to Bush than you did:

A former top aide to Colin Powell says his
involvement in the former secretary of state’s presentation to the
United Nations on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction was “the lowest
point” in his life.

“I wish I had not been involved in it,”
says Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, a longtime Powell adviser who served as
his chief of staff from 2002 through 2005. “I look back on it, and I
still say it was the lowest point in my life.”

That’s a hell of a chink in one’s Karma to know you are wearing into future lives.

OK – everyone will fall of their horses when I say this. I actually, in hindsight, think Bush’s decision to invade Iraq was actually not so bad. True it was a complete and utter cluster, and a giant mess. But consider this – the fall of despots in the Middle East resulted in two failed states (Syria and Libya) – and they foster homes for ISIS. Iraq was borderline failed in the west, and they got that too. Now consider, if the US had not removed Saddam and Iran hadn’t had access to its influence in eastern and central Iraq, and instead Saddam had fallen on his own say 2010 to 2012 – we’d have ISIS from the Persian Gulf to the Med. Now that would be bad.

So sort of like that time you chip onto the green from 30 feed on the apron, and it someone actually goes in the hole – total freakin’ luck, but it’s still a par.

Excellent post.W. was a Godly man that loved this country and did his very best to defeat our enemies abroad and at home-the Democrats.Got to shake his hand and pray with him when he was campaigning with one of the Gatlin brothers in MB prior to the 2004 SC Primary.

Thank you for your service to this country.

If Bush was a godly man he wouldn’t have spend trillions on a war he lied to get us into, killing thousands of armed service men and women to “free” a country that will fall apart after we leave.

OK, I’m waiting for the fish sticks to get crispy in the oven, so I’m giving you folks my all-time favorite George Bush story here:

At Heathrow Airport in England. A 300-foot red carpet was stretched out to Air Force One and President Bush strode to a warm but dignified handshake from Queen Elizabeth II. They rode in a silver 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London where they boarded an open 17th century coach hitched to six magnificent white horses.
As they rode toward Buckingham Palace, each looking to their side and waving to
the thousands of cheering Britons lining the streets, all was going well.

This was indeed a glorious display of pageantry and dignity.

Suddenly the scene was shattered when the right rear horse let rip the most
horrendous, earth-shattering, eye-smarting blast of flatulence, and the coach
immediately filled with noxious fumes.

Uncomfortable, but maintaining control, the two dignitaries did their best to
ignore the whole incident, but then the Queen decided that was a ridiculous
manner with which to handle a most embarrassing situation.

She turned to Mr. Bush and explained, “Mr. President, please accept my
regrets. I’m sure you understand that there are some things even a Queen
cannot control.”

George W., ever the Texas intellectual and gentleman, replied, “Your Majesty,
please don’t give the matter another thought. You know, if you hadn’t
said something I would have assumed it was one of the horses.”

Over 30 years ago when tight blue jeans were the norm, I was on a date. I had to stop for gas. After paying for the gas I slowed my pace so I could fart before I reached the car. When I got in and started the car I felt a bubble of air creeping up the back side of my jeans. Well you guessed it, it was an SBD. I apologized and told her I was sorry. She said for what. I said don’t you smell that, a fart just escaped from my jeans. She laughed and said I wondered why you slowed down, I have a head cold and can’t smell anything. I said to myself with a sense of humor like that I need to marry this girl. To this day she doesn’t want me to fart in public but we’ve had a few good laughs because of them here at home.

That’s a great story! Your prize is one of my “first date” favorites:


Parking in the driveway after their first date, Roger leaned over and gave Linda a passionate kiss. When she responded warmly, he unzipped his fly and pulled her hand to his penis. Furious, Linda opened the door and jumped out of the car.

“I’ve got just two words for you,” she screamed. “DROP DEAD!”

“And I’ve got just two words for you,” Roger screamed, “LET GO!”

PS: what amazes me is that with some humor much effort and thinking has gone into it to make it sound plausible and reasonable up to the punch line — and we never know who created it…..

Have you ever been in a group setting were people are taking pictures and the picture taker says “OK everybody say…FART”. I’ve done it and you wouldn’t believe the expressions on some of the faces.

That technique should be used for those group fotos taken by city police departments and sheriff’s offices (some of which are put on calendars)

If the same thing happened today I wouldn’t be looking for a Mrs. IDCYDM, too set in my ways. That’s not to say a lady friend wouldn’t be in order to spend some time with on occasion. My 95 year old father has an arrangement like that and I see how well it has worked out for both of them.

Who can forget how we cringed and held our breaths in fear of what else this clown would fuck up in the months before he left office. Hang it up Jeb (I’m too ashamed of my last name to use it) Bush.
