Jeb Bush: “Swarthy Immigrants are Fertile and They’ve Got Good Rhythm”

Sometime during the ‘80s or early ‘90s, George H.W. Bush tried to suck up to a Hispanic audience by saying “We need our gardeners, busboys, nannies…”  (Not an exact quote.)

Fast forward a few decades, and now we have Jeb Bush arguing in favor of immigration reform because “immigrants are more fertile.”  He told an audience at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference:

“Demography is destiny.  We’re going to have fewer workers taking care of a larger number of people that the country has a social contract with to be able to allow them to retire with dignity and purpose. We cannot do that with the fertility rates that we have in our country. We’re below break-even today.  The one way that we can rebuild the demographic pyramid is to fix a broken immigration system to allow for people to come, to learn English, to play by our rules, to embrace our values and to pursue their dreams in our country with a vengeance, to create more opportunities for all of us…Immigrants are more fertile. And they love families and they have more intact families and they bring a younger population.”

On the downside, most of them are gang members and they listen to that Godawful Mariachi music.  But their tacos and enchiladas are to die for.

After his speech, Jeb Bush bought a jumbo bag of pork rinds and then went to a truck stop and asked the waitress for “another splash o’ coffee.”

The Bush's have been turned on to Hispanic Hip Hop, no doubt. It's pathetic (the Bush's, not Hispanic Hip Hop) but we need the jobs....sigh. Just ask the Korean beauty and nail workers in south FL and Houston, very grateful lot.

Speaking of odd jobs, if anyone's rich uncle suddenly wont use email/phone and keeps knocking on your door, asking you to go to the library, and research this new thing called ENCRYPTION, here is some background he might not share being he's only offering you $20 or so:

So the population Ponzi scheme didn't quite work out. What happens after the republicans get finished trashing this country and it becomes worse than Mexico?

Ah yes, Jeb Bush. Bless his heart.

Well, Jeb is right, actually -- immigrants *do* have more children than native-born Americans. Doesn't excuse the lame-handed way he interjected that into the need for more hands to take care of aging baby boomers as the boomers retire, but there you go. I do think his heart is in the right place, but he can't escape his upbringing.

9:45 - Assholes often don't have a long term plan. We have nothing on Mexico, never will. I'd rather live in the poorest part of Mexico, in a really bad neighborhood in any of their large cities, take your pick, than any of the richest zip codes in the US. Life is too short to hang around assholes.

Anonymous: Hispanic hip hop and the Bush family, that's an image I'm having trouble with.

WAITING TO EXHALE: Thanks for the link. I hope they smoke out a lot of tax cheaters.

Demeur: It might already be worse than Mexico, in some ways. I think Mexico might have a larger middle class (percentage-wise) than the U.S.

BT: Jeb Bush probably isn't racist, since his wife is Hispanic. But he shows how awkward it is for a sheltered Blueblood to give a speech "connecting" with immigrants and minorities. It's gonna sound phony no matter how he says it.

Anonymous: No argument there.

What he fails to include is all the little snowflake white babies born in the last year or so have come out of white immigrants. The white population here is dying faster than they can get to bumping uglies and creating more little snowflake babies. The projection was something like 2050 it would be majority minority but now it's looking like it will happen sooner. I'm hoping I can add to the numbers of little brown mutts myself :)

This is probably the biggest part of the reason, in the southern staes and those run by GoOpers, they are forcing women to be incubators with all the anti choice laws they are putting on the books. They see the writing on the wall and they don't like what it says.

Jess: I agree, part of the Talibangelicals' anti-abortion frenzy is based on wanting white women to be incubators for little snowflakes. Bunch of sickfucks. I'm white but it can't happen soon enough to have minorities become the majority. The current GOP won't survive the demographic shifts. They'll either adapt or go extinct.
