Jeb Bush endorses Adam Hasner in congressional District 22

by George Bennett | February 16th, 2012


Republican Senate-turned-congressional hopeful Adam Hasner has landed the endorsement of former Gov. Jeb Bush.

The Bush endorsement could come in handy if Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca or some other Republican gets a notion to challenge Hasner in the primary.

Hasner, the Boca Raton resident who was state House majority leader before he was term-limited in 2010, is running in Palm Beach-Broward congressional District 22. The seat is now held by U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, who bolted to new District 18 when District 22 was redrawn with a Democratic tilt. West is also backing Hasner.

Says Bush in a statement released by Hasner’s campaign: “I am proud to endorse my friend Adam Hasner for the U.S. House of Representatives in District 22. Adam has a passion for reform and for common-sense conservative solutions, and he will take that passion to a Washington that is certainly in need of both.

“The challenges America faces grow each and every day, and we need representatives that share Adam’s commitment to principle, his dedication to government accountability and his proven record in working for his community.

“Adam served Palm Beach and Broward counties with distinction in the state legislature, and I know he will continue to do so in the U.S. House.”

    Doesn’t matter at all because Kristin Jacobs will be the next Congresswoman from the 22nd district after she dispatches Frankel in August!



    You can keep your dreams of fascist oligarchy.

    Here in America we prefer representative democracy and shared prosperity.


    The economy is recovering. We got Bin Laden and Al-Awlaki. Al Qaeda is dead.

    Right now the only enemy left for the United States of America is the Republican Party of fascists and their 1% overlords.




    Screw the GOP and long live the DEMOCRATS who are standing up strong for the Middle Class!

  3. Jan Says:

    Just another reason not to vote for Hasner. He was always Bush’s boy in Tallahassee.

  4. Jeb who! Says:

    This joker, Jeb Bush, is gonna have his face plastered all over the place, right next to the crook, fraudster, and liar Rick Scott. They both are crooked and they both used their political clout to further enrich themselves and his friends–at tax-payer expense.

    the Bush family is as corrupt as they come. Let’s not forget it was FL that Gore won and was declared the winner by the news, all the while the GHWBush was stating Gore didn’t win FL. Because he knew something we didn’t know. That there was no way Gore could win because it was rigged.

    Is it a surprise former Jeb Bush office of Elections ‘screwed’ everything up? Or that the FL Supreme Court ignored the popular vote and gave it to ‘W’?

    And lets never forget what they, meaning the Bushes have done for the country:

    –created the huge federal deficit and debt we are experiencing now.
    –Lied to the public and enriched themselves by waging an illegal war and fabrication evidence.
    –Invade our privacy with the Patriot Act.
    –Tortured combatants.
    –NOT KILL BIN LADEN in 8 years
    –AND finally, if we use the same logic as those that blame Obama for the mess we are in, then we can blame George W Bush for the terrorist attacks on 9/11 since the warnings were there and ignored on many fronts. Hey, I know it’s a low blow, but I am only using your own logic against you. Otherwise, I wouldn’t go there because I do realize what an ignorant way of not thinking that is.

    Jeb, take your sorry ass back to TX and take your junky, felon of a drug-addict daughter; and the light-fingered, shop-lifter of a wife with you. We don’t want you here anymore and we could care less who you endorse.

    What is so hot about JEB BUSH Was a terrible governor

  6. David Says:

    JEB!’s endorsment is another excellent reason to vote for someone other than Hasner. I sincerely hope that FL will wake up and realize what the Repugnicans have done to this state.

    Why I voted Democrat:

    1. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

    2. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

    3. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

    4. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

    5. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

    6. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.

    7. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

    8. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few months to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

    9. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.

    10. I voted Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE.”

  9. ELC Says:

    FORGETABOUTIT…Hasner can now throw away this election. Anytime a Bush especially Jeb endorces someone..I tend to vote for anybody but that party. Adam might think his endorcement is a bright spot in his election-I look upon it as the DEATH KISS!

  10. Dave Francis Says:

    The American people, namely ‘ the increasing fathomless numbers of THE TEA PARTY” must unseat all radical Politicians, Governors, mayors, judges police chiefs and every elected official, city manager and councilman who are anti-sovereignty and pamper illegal aliens with taxpayer dollars. Their oaths of allegiance are meaningless to them as they have shown by their pro-illegal immigration agenda’s. Antonio Villaraigosa, Los Angeles county mayor, the way he demonizes pro-sovereignty, anti-illegal alien activists should be one of the first to be recalled, as he answers to a government south of our border? Both political parties have been complicit in the flood of illegal migrants and immigrants that is estimated to be well over 20 million, not the numbers calculated by the US census bureau? Our only chance of stopping this scattering pestilence is to support the business mandatory E-Verify program and the Birthright citizenship Act that must be introduced in Congress right now.

    Frank Sharry, Founder and Director of pro-amnesty group America’s Voice and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) went was caught up in a verbal confrontation in The Huffington Post. Sharry calls Chairman Smith’s mandatory E-verify bill “anti-immigrant legislation” and “unworkable and expensive bureaucracy.” Sharry claims the bill would “grant the federal government the authority to approve or disapprove every new hire in America.” That is how it should be, and rejection from being hired. A relatively simple solution that guarantees foreigners begin Mitt Romney’s ‘self-deportation’ antidote, better known as Attrition through Enforcement. Of Course Sharry doesn’t individualize between a legal immigrant and illegal immigrant as it should be acknowledged or the Liberal media.

    Rep. Smith defended E-Verify by saying the web-based program “quickly identifies illegal workers and protects jobs for citizens by checking Social Security numbers and ID of newly hired employees” and describes E-Verify as “free, quick and easy to use.”

    Rep. Smith cites a Rasmussen poll which found that 82% of likely voters think all businesses should be required to use E-Verify. Sharry, this open border individual and is now so frustrated and angry that millions of businesses have chosen to use E-Verify–both voluntary and state mandatory, that this far left progressive is reduced to name calling.

    Sen. Lamar Smith’s E-Verify, “The Legal Workforce Act” is just tipping the scales and only needs a little more momentum from American voters to get this bill into Congress. The potential law has 74 co-sponsors and needs a final push of only 26 more lawmakers with a backbone; four of the co-sponsors are Democrats.

    Join the TEA PARTY, as the refugees from every other delusional political voter and vote a Tea Party senate and house into office, displacing all those politicians and elected officers who protect illegal migrants and immigrants and betrayed the lawful U.S. Populace. These old party agenda is profit, votes and exploitation, and are in collusion with churches, unions, foreign governments and radical organizations and special interest groups. Illegal immigration has been forced on taxpayers through ‘UNFUNDED MANDATES’. These acts include free health care, free schooling, and has attributed to the loss of safety-net for Americans; coerced on citizens and lawful residents by liberal influenced courts.

    Frosty Wooldridge said in his latest article:

    Every indicator that our country is failing shows up daily with 15 million unemployed, 7 million underemployed, 46 million Americans subsisting on food stamps, $700 billion annual trade deficit, $15 trillion national debt, endless wars that cost $15 billion monthly and thousands of kids dropping out of high school daily. I have said it before: illiteracy defines a third world country. With 42 million functionally illiterate Americans, we are well on our way. Nonetheless, Congress pumps over 125,000 immigrants into this country every 30 days. I am beyond exasperated as to why and how we can do this to our country.

    Learn more at NumbersUSA, how the government is defying the U. S. Constitution and the laws that govern us. Investigate even more the terrible penalty our nation pays, for unending spending on foreign nationals by Googling—“AMERICAN PATROL.” Seek out your politician either by phone at 202-224-3121, or go their office in person. Proclaim to them they are–OUT–if they vote for any kind of AMNESTY, disguised as Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

    When the States of Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, Indiana and South Carolina is being financially crippled by the illegal alien invaders, it is undeniable that something smells of government corruption. These states have spoken out on behalf of their taxpayers, especially the border state of Arizona. Using fake ID, of exceptionally good quality unlawful nationals are able to qualify for food stamps, WICC and other public assistance programs. It is way past time that many incompetent administrations stopped this fraud? The only possible way is to issue every eligible US citizen and others able to qualify a National ID card, which can be substantiated?

    Our Social Security numbers and other documentation has been compromised, as seen in the overwhelming amount of victims that is unceasing spreading across our nation.

    Important: Voter fraud does exist and our only chance of fair and impartial elections, from now until the November Presidential is every citizen show official Identification. Non citizens have been registered to vote and will again in all electoral cycles, which could cause major issues in a close vote. Fake ID has been around for years, but is more prevalent now than ever before?
