As we’ve said before, the last thing this country needs is another Clinton or Bush in the White House.
With Chris Christie hobbled (for the time being) the establishment GOP has turned its gaze toward Jeb – “I never thought people would actually let my brother be president” – Bush. Chris Christie would be a good nominee in their eyes, but how much better to have a governor who already knows (and can hire) all the people who worked in the prior Bush presidencies?
Jeb is the way the establishment gives the finger to the new breed of small government people coming up in the GOP. If the establishment can nominate their guy the Tea Party and libertarians will have no choice but to fall in line behind the big government Bush.
Seriously, how is it that in a country with 315 million people 2 families have been allowed to dominate the most important office in the land for potentially a collective quarter century.?
And now the laudatory articles start.
(From The Washington Times)
“If you look at the Republican field minus Jeb Bush, you have some potential stars out there, but nobody knows whether they can put together the grand effort needed to win the nomination and go on to win the White House,” he said. “With Jeb, people are immediately struck by his intellectual heft. He is a serious policymaker and you get the sense that he could go all the way.”
For the sake of the country let’s hope not.
Oh, and Jeb is a key guy behind Common Core.
