Jeb Bush is wrong about blacks wanting ‘free stuff’

| October 2, 2015

By George E. Curry NNPA Columnist Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush thinks he can become president of the United States if Republicans can double their share of the black vote in several key states.

By Lee A. Daniels NNPA Columnist Karl Marx famously wrote, “History repeats itself, first time as tragedy, second as farce.” So, his ghost must have eagerly joined the many living in this dimension who last week thoroughly enjoyed the two spectacles that underscore the chaos within—and perhaps even the coming-apart of—the Republican Party.

Jeb Bush: Immigration is ‘not a felony’ but ‘an act of love’
