Jeb Bush Cuts Trio of Spanish-Language Ads for Republicans

Jesse Byrnes, The Hill, October 7, 2014

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) in ads rolling out Tuesday urges Spanish-speaking audiences to elect Republican candidates in Colorado, Arizona and California, states with large numbers of Latino voters.

The nearly seven-figure ad campaign, sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, uses the potential 2016 presidential candidate, who is fluent in Spanish, to appeal to Latino voters wth pro-business themes.

Bush backs Rep. Cory Gardner (R), incumbent Sen. Mark Udall (D)’s challenger in Colorado, saying that Gardner is “a good man willing to buck his own party” and is “dedicated to creating more jobs and growing the economy for everyone.”

“Cory supports the hardworking and entrepreneurial spirit of the Latin community,” Bush says in the 30-second TV spot airing in Denver and Colorado Springs and online statewide.


In California, Bush backs the reelection of Rep. David Valadao (R), the son of immigrants, over challenger and former Capitol Hill staffer Amanda Renteria (D). In the ad Bush says Valadao is “willing to work across the aisle to do what’s right to keep families together, grow our economy and create good-paying jobs.”

    I guess Obama wasn’t available to do plugs for them.

  • Roll together any Bush and the Chamber Pot of Commerce and you get the Eighth Circle of Hell.

    And with this, I’ve finally put Cory Gardner on my recommended do-not-vote-for list.

    As a conservative, I will say that if Jeb Bush becomes our next President, the ten people left in Mexico will be here ASAP.

  • DaveMed

    Jeb Bush, Jeb Bush…

    Oh, right – he’s the one with the Mexican wife!

    • Pathfinder75 (formerly Shadow)

      “he’s the one with the Mexican wife!”

      Which is another way of saying that he suffers from “tamale fever”.

    • propagandaoftruth

      He’s got his brownies’ future to pad.

      And a son caught with his pants down (literally) in a parking lot, and a daughter hopped up on drugs.

      • SentryattheGate

        And his wife caught sneaking lots of high-priced designer gowns across the border w/o declaring them to customs; thereby averting the customs fees. And a son, George Prescott Bush running for a state office in Texas.

      And the drug addict daughter.

  • WR_the_realist

    I have a growing suspicion that the Republican Party will give us Jeb Bush as the 2016 nominee for president. That will work about as well as the selection of McCain in 2008. After all, like McCain he has the blessing of the mass media because he favors open borders and illegal immigration.

    • Ike Eichenberg

      All signs point to Romney going for his third fail.

    • Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee and maybe Jeb Bush.

  • NoMosqueHere

    As much as Senor Yeb wants to be our first Mexican president, he will fail. Republicans will never be able to out pander democrats for the spanish vote. The democrat goody bag is limitless.

    • Ike Eichenberg

      His half Mexican son George P. is being groomed for the Oval Office now.

      • SentryattheGate

        He’s on his way, running for a state office in Texas.

    I saw Jeb on TV the other day, and the lighting and camera angle made him look strikingly like Vincent D’Onofrio of “Law & Order – Criminal Intent.” D’Onofrio would make a far better president. I can imagine him cocking his head to one side, bending at the waist and cracking a little smile at Putin.

    • IstvanIN

      Would we have to address him as Señor Traición?

    • propagandaoftruth

      D’Onofrio (thanks for spelling that out first) has been a favorite of mine since Full Metal Jacket.

      He has Tourettes, you know? Has it under control, but uses it very effectively to play weird characters.

      He’s getting that age where an Italian actor can start taking lots of good mob boss roles. Like Abe Vigoda.

      My God. Abe Vigoda is still alive (93) and has a band named after him. That made my day. He looked old and haggard when he was young, lol…

  • George Costanza

    If we didn’t allow these a__holes into the country to begin with, we wouldn’t have to appease them. I know a lot of Eastern Europeans who would love to come to America and do the jobs we “won’t” do…

    • Ike Eichenberg

      True, and there’s plenty of white people already here that would do those jobs if we stopped their welfare.
      Not to mention the non whites born here who would figure out that working beat starving.

  • stringtheoryrob

    A other reason I ditched the democrat-lite party and became a White Nationalist.

    • phillyguy

      like I said before and I keep on saying , we need a nationalist leader just like the ones that came into power in Europe in the 1920’s..that is the only leader that can save our race!

      • propagandaoftruth

        I’m partial to Franco myself.

  • MBlanc46

    For those who wish to vote in those states, ole Jeb’s helping identify those you don’t want to vote for.

  • Mybad

    Neocons will once again reign supreme come election time. Their go-to man WILL BE BUSH. A true friend of Israel and Sheldon Adelson. A friend of Hispanics, Latinos, immigration. Case closed. Powers that be will assure it happens. Hanging chads and all, it will happen!!!
