ELDER PATRIOT – Jeb Bush’s recent interview in Nashville with the Southern Baptist Convention reveals just how out of touch he is with today’s Republican voters. Most likely that’s because he has a different agenda than they do.
During the interview he was questioned about the Republican front-runner Donald Trump. His answer accused Trump of “preying on the fear and angst” of voters caused by “America moving away from them.” Mr. Bush then reverted to the tired mantra of politicians past, “to win, and to go the right way, we have to unite rather than divide.”
Jeb, what universe are you living in? Washington has been selling us comity since your father was president and conservatives have nothing to show for it except our loss of freedoms and a bankrupt republic – financially and morally. You’re damn right we’re angry about what your party’s leadership has done to “move America away from us!” You have chosen to be the face of that party and the only fear we have is that your kind might win the White House again. That is something we know America and the world can ill afford.
Mr. Bush then continued by suggesting that many border crossings were an “act of love. This is the world we are in, when you can’t express a pretty common-sense thing. The great majority of people coming here want to provide for their family. It’s a pretty good value.”
This last, is very revealing. We owe a debt of thanks to Mr. Bush for letting us know early in the race that he has no intention of shutting down illegal immigration or of controlling legal immigration in a sane way. Of course, we could surmise that judging by his donor base. It’s become apparent that he is running to represent the same corporate masters as the rest of Washington’s Ruling Elite currently does.
Abe Lincoln told us:
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
Mr. Bush is in the wrong place at the wrong time in history because the base of the Republican Party is refusing to fall for his song this time around. He can blame his party’s leaders past and present; his father who squandered the Regan legacy, his brother who was the most profligate spending president of all those who preceded him, and Boehner and McConnell who demand support of their caucuses to fund Obama’s excesses. They have been the leaders of a party driven to establish a New World Order where U.S. sovereignty becomes a thing of the past. And, Mr. Bush’s simple statements recounted above clearly shows he’s of the same cloth.
Jeb bush’s handlers should consider locking him in a closet for the duration of the campaign after revealing himself so openly to the Southern Baptists.
