Here's Something Odd

(Reuters) - Likely Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush, who was popular among Spanish-speaking voters while Florida governor, marked himself as 'Hispanic' on a 2009 voter registration application, The New York Times reported on Monday.

The newspaper posted a fuzzy copy of the form, which it said it obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department. The circle marked "Hispanic" was checked. The next circle said "White, not Hispanic," which was not checked. Carolina Lopez, a spokeswoman for the county elections department, did not immediately return calls to Reuters.

A Bush representative was not immediately available to comment.

Jeb's reported response:

"No intiendo que se dice."

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio both tweeted Jeb the following advice:

"En boca cerrada, no entran moscas."

File this under "What difference does it make?"

If you make yourself miserable trying to make others happy that means everyone is miserable.

Re: Here's Something Odd

This is odd.  If it's correct (more evidence than a 'fuzzy copy', and how can they get a citizen's voter registration form? Is that legal?), I would love to hear his explanation, for entertainment purposes, should be good!  Does he think that if Hispanics like him, and he can speak Spanish, that means he is Hispanic? Now, technically most Hispanics are white (Caucasian), and 'Hispanic' is not a race at all, and I'm not a fan of the 'what race are you?' questions on documents like this (what difference does it make?), but if you are going to answer it, at least be honest.

But, I don't think it will matter anyway.  I think our next president will be someone who hasn't yet emerged, and no one has even thought about seriously yet.
