    Bush is the latest candidate vying for the Repub nomination to come out in support of the anti-gay law in Indiana.
    The move flies in the face of Bush's claims to be a "moderate".

    sad truth is that the more any candidate tries to be most liked in his party for "primary time" and party nominations, the further away from "moderate" or center they go in a national sense. Bush is not a shocker nor even unique.....Still disgusting.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Another sad truth is that it is only the GOP primary that makes a person smell like sh*t afterwards. Going left in a DEM primary makes a person more sympathetic to minorities, helpful to the poor and downtrodden, and loving of one's neighbor.

    How anyone can vote GOP circa 1980s through today is beyond me. It's bigoted, divisive, the mouth piece of the rich, and quite frankly, disgusting to Christ's teachings of social justice and his second greatest command, love thy neighbor as yourself.

    Jeb Bush has made so many mistakes that when they are exposed during his campaign, it is hard to see how he could be elected.

    Same shit different day!

    They've tried to burn the witches at they stake and now there protecting it. My view is this......Only after a 1000 years do they, the "religeous groups" feel threatened widely enough to pass laws to protect them from law suits and the unwanted. Tells you something about them in the first place. Move on, move away and ignore the witch hunters! They will be the ones who will ultimately burn or go down! #boycottindiana watch this......

    Just shot himself in the foot, Republicans wouldn't get the gay vote anyway, and Americans aren't that prejudiced anymore. Another Bush in power? I don't think so.

    Jeb had been trying to use his brother George W's 2000 campaign tactic and portray himself as a "compassionate conservative" but this HUGE mistake has blown to bits the idea that he's a moderate.
    He's outed himself as a far-right Repub.

    Bush - of course - was lying in 2000 when he claimed to be a moderate "compassionate conservative", and as soon as he got elected he began ramming through a bunch of far-right economic policies and abandoned the non-interventionist foreign policy approach he advocated during the 2000 campaign to immediately start planning for invading Iraq and removing Saddam Hussein.

    The 2016 campaign has barely begun and little brother Jeb's claim to be a moderate "compassionate conservative" has already been revealed as a lie.
    His support for the far-right Indiana anti-gay law makes it clear that he's a far-right Repub and NOT a moderate.

    This is bad news.

    But...

    In a way I am glad this is happening. We are going to have various religious groups shouting over one another. We are going to have scientific evidence entering in. Then we will have another Enlightenment period where evidence trumps religion. It is the only logical solution. Why should one religion take precedence over another?

    At the end of the day we are fighting for freedom.

    I am hoping that humanity will come out stronger. We cannot go back to religious influence

    This is yet another issue that make it clear that the idea that the two parties are the same is BS.
    The policies advocated by the Dems and the Repubs re: gay equality are polar OPPOSITES.

    And in fact, the party platforms advocated by the Dems and the Repubs make it very clear that across the board - the policies and priorities of the two parties are vastly different.

    Bush @0:27
    "I think Gov. (Prick) has done the right thing...This is simply allowing people of con (Freudian slip?)..."


    Look, the people of Khan...

    "...people of faith, ah space to be able to um express their beliefs. To have, uh, to be able to, um, be people of conscience."


    Because, what?, people who don't discriminate are not people of conscience?

    I say this with all due respect, with the gentleness I so often display and, of course, great compassion: Jeb Bush should go fuck himself.

    It looks as though the Republicans are trying to act more reactionary than each other. It will be interesting to see the outcome.

    I wish that the Democratic party had a better candidate than H. Clinton. I would have no problem with a female president, but I don't see her as a good choice although she may be better than the Republican alternatives.

    There are better potential democratic candidates than the hapless Hillary ho. Bernie Sanders is a much better and more qualified candidate than that power hungry bimbo. Joe Biden is more qualified than Hillary. Former Maryland Governor O'Malley would be a more viable candidate that the bumbling Clinton bitch. If it should end up being the power hungry Hillary whore versus any of the republican candidates, I will vote republican because this country cannot afford to have Hillary as president. All her so called accomplishments and success stories are a result of her riding on the coat tails of more successful and qualified political leaders over the years. Otherwise, Hillary did absolutely nothing. She was a mediocre to lousy Secretary of State.

    It appears Indiana is going to be considered a mild affair in comparison to this coming up next:

    Smart of Louisiana Republicans. Given that Louisiana hits bottom economically, there is no company left to pull out of Louisiana.

    Well, there is the oil & gas industry, which is rather large. But they're unlikely to walk away from billions in investments and future revenues. The fishing industry is local, so they've got no option but to stay.

    New Orleans relies heavily on tourism, but most of the "sinners" who go there to debauch themselves are straight-laced Christians at home. So they won't change their patterns, still be visiting. And actually there are many "decent" things for them to do in NOL, as well, including attending sporting events. If LGBTs boycott I doubt they'll be seriously missed in the big picture.

    So while Louisiana does have a pathetic economy, what they do have won't be influenced by this, in my opinion. Therefore in that sense you are correct.
