Hatch endorses Jeb Bush for president

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sen. Orrin Hatch issued the following statement Wednesday in support of Jeb Bush’s candidacy for president:

Our country is in the midst of a crisis in leadership. At home, our economy continues to limp along and too many citizens lack good jobs and opportunities to advance. Abroad, the United States appears weak. Our enemies no longer fear us and many of our friends no longer trust us.

We need a President who will restore America’s strength by promoting real opportunity for all and by reengaging with the world. Jeb Bush is a proven leader who has the experience and the commitment to get our country back on track.

Jeb has a longstanding record of conservative reform. In Florida, he cut taxes, eliminated wasteful spending, and reformed broken government programs so that they better served people most in need. Jeb created the first statewide school choice program, expanding opportunities for parents and students. He took on the teacher’s unions and won.

I am confident Jeb will do the same for our country — creating jobs, expanding opportunity for all, and restoring America’s standing in the world. Most important, I know Jeb will help our country move beyond the politics of polarization. He will work to unite our party and our nation. And he will reform government so that it serves the best interests of all the people. Jeb is a doer, not just a talker. And our country desperately needs a conservative doer in the White House.

For all of these reasons, I am pleased to endorse Jeb Bush for President of the United States.”

    Ah, yet another reason to dislike Hatch.

  • Brian August 13, 2015 at 9:04 am

    Read my lips: NO NEW DYNASTIES. Hatch and his cronies are poster-children for term limits.

    • Accountable August 13, 2015 at 5:03 pm

      You are absolutely correct Brian. Term limits would restore the citizen-legislator ethos of the Founding Fathers.

    We so badly need to dump both these RINOs.

    • Bender August 13, 2015 at 11:09 am

      You say RINO like it’s a bad thing.

    • ffwife August 13, 2015 at 5:33 pm

      Yep and Yep!

    All hail the newly crowed monarch, King Bush III

  • beentheredonethat August 13, 2015 at 10:28 am

    Didn’t he also endorse Lincoln?

    • NotSoFast August 13, 2015 at 11:01 am

      Now that was an appropriate question.

      Excellent question, but I was thinking more about the dinosaur age!

  • DRT August 13, 2015 at 11:48 am

    Well we made “history” by electing a black president. See how that worked out? So now we will likely make “history” by electing Jeb. 🙁 Anybody see any more Bushes lurking out there in the uh-er bushes? 😉

    Um, I’m new here. How is it that Hatch keeps getting reelected if you folks want to dump him?

    • wilbur August 13, 2015 at 12:22 pm

      Lot of Republicans here, but many of ’em aren’t all that bright, sadly.

      • fun bag August 13, 2015 at 1:10 pm

        Lot of Republicans here, but *99.9% of ’em aren’t all that bright, sadly.

          Lots of Dem/Socialist trolls here, and none of them are bright.

            But they make up for their dimness by making tons of noise with both ends of the gastrointestinal tract.

    • Simone August 13, 2015 at 2:14 pm

      Easy. Hatch has been approved by the Mormon church. The majority of people around here subscribe to Mormonism. These people have been taught that they must do what church officials say without question or face excommunication first then shunning followed eternal damnation. So when their Bishops tell them who to vote for, they follow orders.

    The ruling class sticks together to our detriment.

    Luckily, Orrin’s endorsement is worth absolutely nothing.
