I unwittingly made today my election special……I know a bit early but what the Hell! What is life without whimsy?
There are many that seem to think the Jeb is the man to beat in the general election in 2016…..I have my doubts…..but first my apology…….
I must be honest here…..back in the early days of the election of 2000 I was tickled by GW Bush……his antics and performance in debates and such lead me to believe he was an idiot….I thought then that he would be the perfect GOP candidate to run against Gore……for Gore would be a shoo in for the presidency…..keep in mind I was not a big fan of Clinton or Gore for that matter…..but the alternative were just to simple minded to win the election.
While researching candidates and other politicos I read up on his brother Jeb at the time was the governor of Florida…..all that I read lead me to believe that he was articulate and rather intelligent……so I was one of those that thought the wrong brother had been chosen to run….the country would be much better off with Jeb over GW……..
Fast forward to the 2016 election…..we have Jeb running for the nomination of the GOP…..and since his announcement he has made some truly bone-head decisions. For one was the release of the e-mails as his time as governor…..the problem was he released many many of them and a good portion of them had people’s personal information in them which became public knowledge.
Then there was the gay thing passed and signed in Indiana by another GOP d/bag, Mike Pence……Jeb came out in support of the law and then after so much uproar he has to walk back his approval and :clarify” what he had said.
He then came out in support of the letter written by a mental midget Sen. Cotton of Arkansas to the leaders of Iran pretty much crapping on any nuke deal……and as usual Jeb had to walk that back also…..
All of this was just to stay in good graces with the neocon money train…….and then most recently when asked about the foreign policy of the US he has this to say……..“The basic policy should be our friends know we have their back over the long haul, and our enemies need to fear us again,” Bush said at the South Carolina GOP convention in Columbia, according to the Associated Press.
