WASHINGTON - When Jeb Bush sat down last summer to write an ambitious plan to overhaul the immigration system, prominent conservatives were calling for mass deportations as a solution to the problem of having 11 million illegal immigrants in the country. In that environment, the former Florida governor and possible 2016 presidential hopeful came up with a proposal that he felt could bring conservatives to the table while simultaneously luring Latino voters to the GOP. Half a year later, the proposal, fleshed out in a newly released book, has landed in the midst of a radically changed political environment.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is making the rounds to promote his book "Immigration Wars" -- but he seems to be most at war with himself. "Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution" proposes that illegal immigrants could become permanent legal residents, but not citizens. The trouble is, the political landscape has shifted -- and so have Bush's ideas. On Tuesday, Bush said he would support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants “if you can craft that in law where you can have a path to citizenship where there isn't an incentive for people to come illegally.” That's at odds with his own book, in which he writes, “those who violated the laws can remain, but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship.” Tuesday on "Morning Joe," he explained:  “We wrote this book last year, not this year.” So...

WASHINGTON _ As Republican Jeb Bush appeared to back away from supporting citizenship for illegal immigrants on Monday, top Republican senators working on the issue distanced themselves from his comments.    Bush, speaking on NBC's “Today” show, indicated he would prefer that the estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally be given permanent legal status rather than a pathway to citizenship -- which has been the long-standing goal of the immigrant community. Senators are seriously considering such a citizenship measure in a bipartisan effort that President Obama supports.

George H.W. Bush, the nation's oldest former president, could be released this week from a Texas hospital after nearly two months of treatment, according to a family spokesman. Bush, 88, could be released from Methodist Hospital in Houston, if doctors give him the final approval, spokesman Jim McGrath said in an email to reporters. “We are hopeful that the president can be discharged this coming week, but we're still taking everything one day at a time,”  McGrath said. If Bush is released, it is unclear whether he will return to his Houston home or be sent to a rehabilitation facility.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - George W. Bush has been virtually silent during the 2012 election. He offered a public endorsement of Mitt Romney only after being caught by a reporter heading into an elevator, and has been silent about the reams of criticism lobbed his way by Democrats for the economic collapse of 2008. But his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, wasn't silent on that question Wednesday as he campaigned with Gov. Mitt Romney on Wednesday. “Our country has huge problems, huge problems, structural problems that require people that actually solve problems rather than just talk about it or excuse away why it is that things aren't working,” Jeb Bush said during a rally in Jacksonville on Wednesday evening.

TAMPA, Fla. — The distinguished Republican panel included House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former George W. Bush domestic policy advisor Margaret Spellings. But the audience clapped for only one person at the beginning of a discussion on education policy Thursday: former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. "By the way," Jeb Bush said, prompting a second round of applause, "it was a spectacular speech. " Every so often at a political convention, a rising star disappoints (say, Bill Clinton, who droned on too long in 1988)

TAMPA, Fla. - George W. Bush has not been much of a presence at the Republican National Convention, his two-term administration barely mentioned, but the former president got a prime-time shout-out from his younger brother, Jeb Bush, in an unscripted moment from center stage. "My brother, well, I love my brother," the former Florida governor told the cheering crowd, opening his remarks by diverting from his scheduled talk on education. "He is a man of integrity, courage and honor, and during incredibly challenging times, he kept us safe.

TAMPA, Fla. - Party activists come to a convention for many reasons - networking, fundraising, morale boosting - but for a handful of Republicans who envision themselves as potential future nominees, this week represents an audition. Conventions may not generate much actual news anymore, but they remain a crucial proving ground for new talent. Most politicians remember that Barack Obama probably would never become president but for a tremendously successful keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
