Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) pushed states to approve the controversial drilling practice known as fracking while he personally stood to profit from the practice, theTampa Bay Times reported on Friday.

According to the Times, Bush, a likely 2016 presidential contender, urged a group of New York conservatives in 2013 to support fracking, even while he was involved with a private equity group that was raising $40 million for a company acquiring fracking wells.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, involves drilling water, chemicals and sand into the earth to break up rocks, thus freeing oil and natural gas. Environmentalists who object to the process say that fracking releases hazardous chemicals into the water supply.

Those in the audience probably didn't know that Bush co-owns a company that is a managing partner of FracStar Logistics, a company that provides sand for fracking. According to the Times, Bush's son, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, helped found FracStar, whose name has since been changed to Proforce Energy Services. The report also notes that the former governor and his other son, Jeb Bush Jr., are co-owners of the managing group, De Soto Partners.

In addition, the Tampa Bay Times highlighted a speech that Bush gave in Colorado last year, in which he said that a possible statewide referendum that could permit more restrictions on fracking was "one of the dumbest things I've ever heard."

Hold on one second. You mean he supported something that created a lot of US jobs and helped reduce US dependence on foreign oil?
Outrageous!
I can see why that would make liberals angry.

I wouldn't want the guy as president but Jeb believed that fracking was a good thing for the economy and consumers everywhere and he was right.

"Through the use of hydraulic fracturing, the United States has become the world’s largest oil and gas producer, keeping natural-gas prices low for U.S. consumers, and keeping crude oil prices in check around the world."

Well thank you Bush, because if it wasn't for fracking the Saudis wouldn't of lowered the price of gas. Something positive to run on. What does Hillary have? I lost 4 american lives, because I didn't know what I was doing.

Oh my God! How dare a private citizen be an advocate for his own business interests!?! Doesn't he know that he's supposed to sit down and be quiet and wait for the government cheese truck to distribute his daily meal?

This is no different than a sitting President touting green energy and all of his cronies benefitting from a failed Solyndra. Unlike Solyndra, oil is proven technology.

Solyndra? What about all the other successful ones? The DOE government loan program actually makes money.

No politician cares about america. They run for the office so they can make a fortune - something they can't do by honest toil.
Their only question is - Which side will pay me the most.?
