Jeb Bush joins Ryan to court Latinos in Miami

MIAMI —

At the landmark Versailles restaurant in Little Havana, where Castro-bashing is as much a menu staple as the cortaditos and ropa viejas, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan courted Latino voters Saturday by accusing President Obama of a “policy of appeasement” toward the Cuban dictator and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.

Ryan also joined Republican nominee Mitt Romney in blasting Obama for telling the Spanish-language network Univision on Thursday that Washington can’t be changed from the inside.

Ryan appeared with a guayabera-clad former Gov. Jeb Bush, one of the GOP’s most popular figures with Hispanic voters. Ryan was also accompanied by his mother, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea resident Betty Ryan Douglas, who has become a key figure in Republican efforts to reassure seniors about Ryan’s Medicare proposal.

“The exciting thing for my family today is my mom finally got to meet Jeb Bush,” Ryan told supporters who packed the restaurant in the heart of Miami’s Cuban-American community. A larger, outdoor rally had been planned for the restaurant’s parking lot, but rain forced the event indoors.

3. Why on earth would people elect the brother of George W. Bush?

I can't believe they think Americans would want a 3rd Bush.

5. You all have to be kidding...right? We'll be running the wife of Bill Clinton!!!

Love him or hate him, I love him and I just watched his Awesome interview on The Daily Show, with Stephen Colbert. What happened to him way back when underscores the hypomanic Right and the neutered Left. We "misunderestimate" at our peril, the political reality of anti-Liberal ignorants.
