Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think the day would come that I would agree with Democrat operative James “The Ragin’ Cajun” Carville.
But I’m with him on this one. We don’t need, and hopefully the majority of Americans agree, and we don’t want another Bush in the White House.
Here’s a portion of what Carville writes in his article “Does the US really want another Bush?” published in The Hill:
“Let me suggest that poll question: ‘As you may have heard, Jeb Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush, is running for president in 2016. Jeb Bush has announced his eight-member foreign policy team, seven of which advised his brother to go to war with Iraq and how to conduct that war. Having heard this, are you more or less likely to vote for Jeb Bush for president?’”
This is not to say that I want one of Carville’s picks which would give us another Clinton, Gore, or Obama. May it never be.
Carville’s agenda is to revive the glory days of Bill Clinton. That ain’t going to happen no matter who the Democrats put in unless it’s Hillary and she picks Bill as vice president and she resigns.
There’s more to dislike about Jeb Bush than what Carville lists. The two Bush administrations turned out to be disasters in so many ways. What was good about the Reagan years was squandered by George I, and George II gave us No Child Left Behind that left more children behind, an expensive failed war in Iraq that kicked the Islamic hornet’s nest, and continued the spend, spend, spend policies of his Democrat and Republican predecessors, including Ronald Reagan.
A “George III” would be worse. We might never recover as a nation.
“Pro-amnesty, Pro-gay marriage, and pro-abortion donors are powering former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s fundraising operation.” This should be enough to keep Bush from even becoming a primary candidate.
At the 2013 CPAC convention, Jeb Bush said, “Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on.”
Why do many people believe these things? Is it because they’re true? No. It’s what Democrats say about Republicans. The fact that Bush brought them up and threw them in our face is a perfect indicator that he is not our guy in 2016.
It is true that many, even most, conservatives that are still left in the Republican Party are opposed to giving people who engage in certain sex acts special privileges. We’ve seen what has happened to the “live and let live” argument of the Left on this issue. Anybody who takes a different position can have their freedoms and livelihoods taken away.
People of good will who opposed granting special legal privileges to people who engage in same-sex sexuality knew that it would not stop with homosexuality. Do you know that there are now 15 alternative sexualities that will be vying for special legal status? LGBT has grown to LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. “The 15 letters stand for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamourous, bondage/disciple, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism, in that order.”
Buzzfeed is reporting that Jeb Bush has made the switch even though at this time he will deny it. Like Obama, he will say that he’s evolved on the issue. He will support same-sex marriage if he is elected. He’s promised his donors. The evidence? Look who he’s picking to join his campaign team:
“When Bush officially launches his presidential bid later this year, he will likely do so with a campaign manager who has urged the Republican Party to adopt a pro-gay agenda; a chief strategist who signed a Supreme Court amicus brief arguing for marriage equality in California; a longtime adviser who once encouraged her minister to stick to his guns in preaching equality for same-sex couples; and a communications director who is openly gay.
“To an extent that would have been unthinkable in past elections, one of the leading candidates for the Republican presidential nomination has stocked his inner circle with advisers who are vocal proponents of gay rights. And while the Bush camp says his platform will not be shaped by his lieutenants’ personal beliefs, many in the monied, moderate, corporate wing of the GOP — including pragmatic donors, secular politicos, and other members of the establishment — are cheering the early hires as a sign that Bush will position himself as the gay-friendly Republican in the 2016 field.”
If Jeb Bush is the Republican candidate in 2016, the GOP will lose another presidential election. Enough conservatives will stay home. Not only will Republicans lose the White House again, they most likely will lose the Senate and House.
The country is not embracing same-sex marriage. Judges are, and they are imposing their immorality on the nation by judicial fiat.
Another Bush in the White House will be bad for America. Another Bush just running for president in 2016 will had the nation over to the most radical leftists America has ever seen.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
