In typical Bush Family style, phony Ol Jeb decides to give a Speech denouncing Lobbyists while being Sponsored by a Corporate Lobbying Group.

Speaking at Florida State University, the former Florida governor derided what he called the capital city’s “comfortable establishment” that leverages lobbying power to unduly shape public policy. “I was a governor who refused to go along with that establishment,” Bush said.

Bush was touting his clean-government credentials at a function organized by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, a private lobbying group for the state’s business community. Emails obtained by International Business Times show that Bush’s campaign coordinated the event with the chamber, whose political committee has donated to a super PAC backing Bush's bid for president.

This is a typical smoke screen to try and get elected. Hypocrite Deluxe.
I wonder if food comes out his rear end, because I know what comes out of his mouth,

Before Jeb Bush can get back into politics, he has to rehabilitate the family name. He started this process with a speech defending his brother’s record at the 2012 Republican convention, and he is continuing it by trying to massage away from the memories of voters his brother’s responsibility for destroying the economic health of the country.

In order to explain away the facts, Jeb Bush has to repeat stupid and obvious lies about the president passing the “largest tax increase in history,” and “not being serious about the debt.” Entitlement spending and how this debt was created are two separate issues that Republicans are trying to mix up in order to accomplish their ideological goal of destroying the social safety net.

Before the sequester, Obama had already slashed the debt by $2.5 trillion. However, this apparently isn’t serious enough for Jeb Bush.

Jeb Bush wants back into politics, but his brother’s legacy is the main reason why he will never be president. Jeb Bush can tell all the lies he wants, but as long as Americans are still living with the economic pain caused by this brother, he will never win a presidential election.

If you look at the impact of the policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, it becomes clear who was/is not taking the debt seriously. President Obama’s policies will only add $983 billion to the debt over the course of his eight years in office, while George W. Bush’s policies added $5.1 trillion to the debt during his presidency.

The other debt on Obama’s record was caused by the collapse of the economy, and we all know who is responsible for The Great Recession! Jeb Wont see the white house!

Jeb Bush was completely lying about both Obama’s seriousness about reducing the national debt, and the drivers of our debt. It is stunning that Bush would so openly try to fool the American people into forgetting his brother’s role in creating our current debt problem. Bush repeated the Great Republican Lie that entitlement spending is responsible for the debt. Bush also ignored the fact that President Obama has put entitlement reform on the table numerous times during his presidency.

The best way to illustrate both how we got here and who got us here is with this graph

Actually, the National Debt has increased under Obama.

By around $8 Trillion.

Bush left office with around a $10 Trillion national debt.

look at what it is today ...

Sounds like his brother dubya getting paid 100,000 to speak for a wounded veterans event. This family is shady at best, tons of conspiracies allegations and with how disgusting they are I wouldn't be surprised to some of the theories validity. Even if they aren't true what a disgusting family.

You do in fact realize that debt can increase as a result of a decision that occurred in the past...? Government spending is not done from a liquid cash flow with each decision being paid for as soon as it's made. That 8 trillion was nearly all a result of policies enacted by previous Presidents.

Yes I in fact realize that.

So, show us all the previous policies with all the supporting facts and figures that make Obama not responsible for his failures.

Don't forget his promises during the 2008 campaign and his own denouncement of deficit spending under Bush.

This thread is not about Obummer. Because you don't like Bush doesn't mean you support Obummer, but in defense he was handed an 11 Trillion Debt, 2 Wars and massive deregulation by that prick "W" . Nobody could turn that around, and I doubt they ever will.

What we don't need is the Bush Bastards or anybody vaguely similar.

Vote Bernie Sanders, our only hope.

A huge portion of the debt under Obama is due to accounting changes. Under Bush the wars and anything else placed under the supplemental spending bill didn't go onto the debt. Obama changed the accounting which added a lot of money to the official debt total. That money was already spent, regardless of how it was being listed.
