Jeb Bush: Man For The Statist-Quo™


It’s RINO season again. In response to Jeb’s address at CPAC, and to Dick “I’m a conservative now, really! I am!” Morris’ assertion that Ted Cruz is “divisive”, an old buddy of ours emailed this:

It’s not enough to haverich moderates in your corner; Jeb needs a lot more than that to win the primary.
He’s alienating everyone, he’s alientating social cons with his pro-gay advisers, he’s alienating fiscla conservatives with his support ofr amnesty, he’s alineating both parents and teachers with his support for Common Core, and he certainly doesn’t have the ear of libertarians.
who does he have left/

Please forgive our friend’s typing.  His point is clear and brutally sharp: That Jeb is the divisive candidate, and by implication, every statist-leaning candidate sharing his pro-centralized government, anti-libertarian views.


Dyslexia Politica leads inevitably to Electile Dysfunction


Our response is that the Demos are not going to field a “moderate”; it would be folly for Republicans to alienate that huge bloc of Republicans, Independents and Democrats who are looking for a real choice.

The Bush family’s fetish for bowing and scraping before the altar of “moderation” leads Republicans into a trap.

Republican ED is a condition indicated by sagging numbers, “moderate” performance and ideological befuddlement. The condition is known colloquially as “Squishy.” The cause is a condition known as Dyslexia Politica. Put bluntly, many Republicans and “Conservatives” can’t tell Left from Right.”

Have Republicans learned nothing given the devastating losses they have suffered running liberal candidates?  From Jeb Bush’ candidacy, apparently so.

    Driving about yesterday I heard Geraldo (TM) opine that no Republican could beat Hillary, other than The Jebster. Funny how establishment Gerry Rivers has become, notwithstanding his naked selfies. Living in the Manhattan media fishbowl really has clouded his objectivity. Kind of pathetic really.

      A: A ham sandwich can beat Hillary
      B: No Republican can beat Hillary except Jeb
      Ergo: Republicans are not ham sandwiches, but Jeb is.

      With you on Gerry – and the fish bowl syndrome.

    I don’t think Clinton’s wife will be the nominee. I smell a shake up.

      I too. At first I thought this was one of those classic Clinton “limited hang-out” things to be rebuffed later as “old news.” Now I’m not so sure. Gals like Carly Fiorina have done inestimable damage to Hillary’s Identity card. Perhaps Demos smell a loser?

    She’s not likable at all. Therefore, she isn’t liked. The more people get to know her, the less they like her. I think she’s already been taken out and we’re just awaiting the theater that would explain it all away.

      Good point. She’s been around too long; there’s no way for the old media to hype a new Brand on her. No way to make her look appealing. Hell, she already has morticians doing her makeup.

      As for la Mooche, she’s abandoned couture and gone straight for upholstery.

      They could both learn a thing or two about presentation from Debbie W-S over at DNC.
