Jeb joins the Dis Newt Gingrich's Message Club over 'ridiculous' Crist bashing

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush dissed Republican candidate Newt Gingrich for invoking the name of former Republican-turned-independent Gov. Charlie Crist, whose former staffers work for Mitt Romney (some former Crist-ites also work for Gingrich's camp)

“That’s not a serious accusation,” Bush told the National Review Online. “Candidates win elections. I’m not a big Charlie Crist fan, as you recall, but these guys shouldn’t have that moniker attached to them, as if Governor Romney is part of some evil plot. That’s ridiculous.”

Bush's comments are a harsher version of Sen. Marco Rubio's statement on the matter Tuesday. Rubio followed up Wednesday with a forceful condemnation of Gingrich's Spanish-language radio ad that called Romney 'anti-immigrant.'

Not a good week for Gingrich heading into Tuesday's vote.

I hope people are enjoying the magic show. This next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren't in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

Jeb Bush is our #1 State of Florida ADA violator. He evaded the ADA for 8 years, ruined the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation with his "privation" of this agency who receives huge federal funding in matching funds and vetoed many disabled persons projects, see Bush veto of 2006 at www.dignity4disabled.com.

Anyone listening to Jeb Bush needs counselinng on what a real "rat" Jeb Bush really is.

"Rats" make sure that restrooms on their floors cannot be used by people in restrooms. Toilets are the Jeb Bush legacy that will live with this ADA violator for the rest of his life. Denny Wood


Newt is a dirty old career politician. A truly unethical man. Charlie Crist was a panderer - just like Newt Gingrich. Gingrich has gone to every state and tells people what they want to hear, not the truth. Romney nailed him on that in the debate last night when he told Newt to get real about a "moon colony." That was classic. I would vote for Newt to be the first person we sned to lve on the moon.

The debate on TV brought up the Swiss and Cayman Islands banking of Romney.

Unfortunately, the Cayman Islands banking history did not come out or get disclosed. Go to google to find out more about the Romney Cayman Island banking history.

Romney skillfully side-steped that one and Newt and the CNN moderator blew that one.

Romney is not volunteering anything about the Cayman Island banking history.

It's early, and Romney will get cornered on the Cayman Islands sooner or later.


Romney is another McCain. We saw that show already. Newt has the pair that will beat Obama. He knows how. He can get the horrible policies of Obama repealed in no time at all.
He knows how. He has balanced the budget before and can do it again. He isn't a white marshmellow millionaire. Romney can't buy it nationally.
