Hyper-Stupid Things Said by Jeb Bush

Best listen to your mother, boy...

It's time to give-up on the "nostolgia" of the Reagan era:

"So our ideas need to be forward looking and relevant. 
I felt like there was a lot of nostalgia and the 
good old days in the [Republican] messaging. 

I mean, it’s great, but it doesn’t draw people toward your cause" 

"From the conservative side, it’s time for us to listen first, 
to learn a little bit, to upgrade our message a little bit, 
to not be nostalgic about the past because, 
you know, things do ebb and flow..."

I don't think a party can aspire to be the 
majority party if it's the old white guy party.

"Reagan -and my father- 
would have a hard time in today's GOP..."

"Back to my dad’s time and Ronald Reagan’s time-
they got a lot of stuff done with a lot of bipartisan support"

Reagan “would be criticized” for reaching across the aisle today. 
"I do feel a little out of step with my party on this..."

Immigrants "are more fertile- and they love families!"

"...we would serve our students better by focusing on attracting 
and retaining the quality teachers by raising teacher pay. "

"I have never wavered from my intention to advance the 
cause of diversity in new and more effective ways."

"I used to be a conservative, and I watch these (2012 primary) debates and I’m wondering, I don’t think I’ve changed, but it’s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people’s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective..."

Jeb Bush on Ted Cruz and his attempts to kill Obamacare: 
"...have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be a politically better approach to see the massive dysfunction...  I think Republicans need to just take a step back and allow -- show a little self-restraint and
let this happen a little more organically."

"I miss being Governor"

"I don't miss politics"

Any still in support of a Jeb 2016 run please email 
Reaganite Republican immediately so I can arrange to come over 
to your house and choke you to death with my bare hands...
