NO WONDER THE RIGHT HATES HIM:

Jeb Bush Listed Himself as 'Hispanic' on Voter Form (Alan Rappeport, 4/06/15, NY Times)

He speaks fluent Spanish. His wife, Columba Bush, was born in Mexico. For two years in his 20s, he lived in Venezuela, immersing himself in the country's culture.

Mr. Bush, a former Florida governor and likely presidential candidate, was born in Texas and hails from one of America's most prominent political dynasties. But on at least one occasion, it appears he got carried away with his appeal to Spanish-speaking voters and claimed he actually was Hispanic.

In a 2009 voter-registration application, obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department, Mr. Bush marked Hispanic in the field labeled "race/ethnicity."
