Endless Love Open Thread

So here is some stuff I've collected from the various corners of the web, all the way from Hot Air to Hot Air's Archives.

I don't know why we're talking about this but there is some concern that Jeb "Act of Love" Bush will be, or won't be, our nominee in 2016.

He recently claimed that illegal border crossings were just a Crazy Little Thing Called Love, causing many conservatives to ask in turn, What's Love Got to Do With It?

Charles Krauthammer notes that we're not just talking about one family that crossed the border, but 11 million illegal migrants. And that's a Whole Lotta Love for the American fisc to start being responsible for.

On that, Kausfiles offered a strange but oddly plausible theory: Bush decided to Keep Talkin' 'Bout Love not to advance his own bid (which won't happen), but to say something so outrageously out of sync with GOP primary voters that it makes his protogé Marco Rubio's position on immigration seem palatable, by comparison.

If the full Rollercoaster of Love offends you, would you accept instead a Lovin' Spoonful?

Karl Rove warns Jeb Bush that maybe he ought to stop needlessly offending the base lest he become a Victim of Love.

Steve Hayes looks at Jeb Bush's prefatory statement -- in which he declared that he didn't care if this was going to be on tape or not -- and concludes that Jeb Bush is definitely thinking seriously about running for President, hoping to ride The Power of Love to the White House.

And, by the way, the Executive Director of the Virginia GOP just called for the party to purge itself of all "nativists," by which he means anyone who doesn't support Comprehensive Immigration Amnesty.

You know, I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That).

Today the President was pumping out the verbal fog (Love Is Like Oxygen), attempting to gin up his base, depressed and anxious (possibly feeling a case of Tainted Love) by declaring it Equal Pay Day, demanding that we end the gap between women's and men's pay. Raising women's wages up to the top floors, much like Love in an Elevator.

Ed Henry wondered why, at the White House itself, women made 88 cents on each man's dollar. Jay Carney then did what he does best, which is babbling aimlessly for five minutes and asking unmarried female voters to Let Me Put My Love In You.

Even CNN had to say, respectfully, To Sir With Love, that's just stupid.

Oh, and somewhere, a Congressman got trapped in his Chains of Love. You're seeing the leaked security footage of his kissy-necky embrace because he's a Republican.

Well, that's what I got. I ain't got no more.

I'm All Out of Love.
