    Who is going to pay Jeb a dime to speak? Lets keep it real.

    I think that you are trying to spin for drama. I also think that if you removed the drama and actually looked beyond a spin article I would be surprised. In other words, if you were really interested in truth and right/wrong you would be raising hell about Hillary rather than dismissing her actions like you previously did in this thread. Jeb is as slimy as they get. I don't like the guy. I would vote for Bernie before I would vote for Jeb. What his brother does is a far reach. Is that all you have? Really? That is the act of desperation.

Show the legal connection between what W did (which BTW - I think was a case where he should have only charged traveling expenses) and Jeb. I can show the connection between Hillary and the Bill Clinton Foundation with great ease.

    why does that seem a partisan position in this instance

    yet another apologist who insists dubya was appropriate in charging $100,000 to speak before a charitable organization helping the troops injured in his wars of choice
    I voted Trump. Thanks Wikileaks.

    Remember all, if this was about Hillary Clinton there would be an outrage from everyone on the right. Since this is about W, we hear crickets.

    clearly, jeb's brother, the former president responsible for getting us involved in unnecessary wars that caused the injury to many of our nation's soldiers, found it acceptable to charge $100,000 to speak at an event intended to fundraise for those purple heart recipients
    Which has nothing to do with Jeb whatsoever. Keep trying though, the desperation is pretty comical.

    He accepted pay for a speaking engagement, and that signals the end of his brother's bid for the nomination.

    This has to be one of the oddest threads I've seen on here.

    I don't recall reading that GWB was running for President again. Do you have a link?

    what we HAVE learned is that dubya charged $100,000 to speak at a charity event intended to help the military personnel who sustained injury during his wars of choice

    So its not about the principle of the matter? Glad we can clear it up that its about hackish partisan politics and not some sort of principled issue.

    what you want to avoid having to acknowledge is the awful truth that dubya charged to speak at a charity event raising funds to help the military personnel injured during his wars of choice

    and you have good reason to want to hide from that reality
