Important participant in democracy Jeb Bush took to some Chamber of Commerce summit on Wednesday and asked: What awful thing has capitalism ever done to anyone that Barack Obama wants to criminalize it so badly?  “‘I think President Obama has used the bully pulpit as a way to attack capitalism,’ he said, according to Bush paused a moment, then acknowledged: ‘That’ll make the news.'” The Bush progeny has become self-aware. Run.  [CNN Political Ticker]

  1. Uh, sorry Jeb, but your brother and his frat boy administration have done more in the last eight years to wreck capitalism than Obama ever could. Try reading a newspaper before shooting off your mouth.

  2. Capitalism is the dream-giver. She is the snowy complexioned, golden-haired siren of commerce, the muse of multi-millions. And that democratic devil has invaded her White House and is having his way with her. The horror!

  3. “That’ll make the news”
    Jeb, if you’re looking to make a splash in the news may I suggest jumping off of a very tall building? Front page stuff I guarantee.

  4. B-b-b-but Jeb, all my buddies on the far left think Barry’s a schill-whore for the the banking industry. Surely you can’t BOTH be right? Or maybe you’re saying that their enablers are really their own worst enemies?


    Jeb/Chauncey Gardener 2012!

  5. But it won’t make Jeb’s obituary like his role in the 2000 election, which will then cause all people to say “ohh he’s the dick responsible for what happened? Man what an awful person.” Then, since he’d be dead, that will be the last time he makes the news, as a person worthy of scorn, nevermore, the end.

  6. [re=447025]OReillysVibrator[/re]: I thought the fault was Sandra Day O’Connor’s when she was serving as the US Supreme Court before she retired and Anthony Kennedy became the third branch of government.

  7. I would like to take my cane to ALL the Bush boys. Puerile assholes.

    P.S. I would also like to pack Pappy’s parachute next time he goes out for a jump.

  8. No, if they truly became self-aware, they’d realize how awful their family is and spontaneously neuter themselves and their progeny. As it is, they’re about as self-aware as an earthworm or a junebug and not nearly as useful.

  9. Big words from a “Republican” that sought to prevent oil drilling off Florida’s shores. Where was your love of capitalism then? Drill, baby, drill!

  10. I don’t recall President Obama attacking capitalism in any speeches — although I do remember him exhorting people to volunteer, get an education and help their communities. Oh — gotcha.

  11. Can’t wait for the Jeb Bush–Liz Cheney Reputation Rehabilitation-alooza, coming soon to a megachurch near you. If you can’t make it in person it’ll be covered live on… oh, hell – this has become WAY too obvious.

  12. “That’ll make the news.”

    Well, no. That’ll make a ripe target for mockery.

    Poor Jebby. The media are fascinated by Palin’s every burp, while he couldn’t get on the front page unless he died or married a boy.

  13. [re=447008]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: And then there’s George P who is apparently going to run for something down your way once he finishes his stint in the Naval Reserves.

    Please do something, I beg of you.

  14. Leaving the Bush family to guard capitalism is like leaving frat boys to guard beer and 17-year old females. The next morning there’s a huge clean-up job complicated by a criminal investigation.

  15. [re=447092]Spike[/re]: Man, that guy is going to be one crappy president come 2016.

    I’m thinking he’s pretty bitter, because if he had only allowed Florida voters to have their ballots counted honestly and impartially in 2000, his chances for Prez in 2016 would one hell of a lot better than they are now. One SHIT-TON HELL of lot better.

    “Oh, yeah. George W Bush. Wasn’t he that guy who lost to Al Gore way back when?”

  16. Yeah, Barry’s “attacking” capitalism while his brother was content to allow capitalism to just run itself into the ground, taking us all with it.

  17. It will make the news because it makes no fucking sense. If he had said, “bank capitalization levels turned out not to have been adequate to weather a significant downturn in asset values and perhaps regulators should address that” THAT would have made sense, and the press would have ignored it.

  18. I enjoyed the comments on the site. I didn’t see a single one that was favorable. And yet they still ask him to speak. Who exactly is he speaking for when no one wants to hear what he has to say?
