The 2016 election is just sad on so many levels….but the best is poor Jeb Bush, He just cannot win……he has out spent his rivals by a wide margin and what has all the cash bought him?
He just keeps sliding in the polls….presently he stands at about 5% but it will depend on which poll you care to quote……
Trump absorbed 3 points, boosting him to a healthy lead of 27%. Ascending to second-place position in the poll: Marco Rubio, who gained 3 percentage points for a total of 17%. Ted Cruz also drew in 3 additional points to tie Carson at 16%, while Jeb Bush languishes in a distant fifth place with 5%. The rest of the GOP comes in at 3% or less.
As he continues to slide he has not lost his donors……apparently they will stick with him (at least for now) with the hopes that Trump will crash and burn and then his only rival after that will be Rubio……so what does he need to do to impress the GOP voters?
A “did I just say that out loud?” moment in politics usually means someone’s foot has been deftly inserted in someone’s mouth, but in Jeb Bush’s case, it may be a harbinger of a more gender-balanced campaign. Appearing at a town hall in Waterloo, Iowa, on Tuesday, Bush was asked by an audience member about his take on the vice president’s role, per the Daily Caller. After waxing nostalgic on the respectful relationship that had existed between his dad and President Ronald Reagan, Bush added, “That kind of relationship I think is really important. And should I be elected president, I would have my vice president—I think she will be a great partner.”
Whether his use of the pronoun “she” was a slip of the tongue or a calculated move, Bush “quickly walked back the remark,” the Hill notes. “I mean, did I say that out loud?” he asked the audience. “We always talk about this with one gender in mind. I think we’ve reached the point in our country where maybe we should be a little less gender-specific about this.” And, just to give himself an out in case he a) does surprise naysayers and actually get the GOP nomination, and b) picks a guy as his running mate, Bush added, “Frankly, the one important element of selecting a vice presidential candidate is whether he or she is qualified to be president. Everything else is secondary.”
Sad attempt at subtly….maybe someone should tell him that it has been done already….the American people been there, done that and they have the T-shirt…….
Maybe attacking the Dem front runner would help…..
Over the weekend Jeb Bush, the US presidential hopeful, told CBS News that if it came to it he would support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, “because anybody is better than Hillary Clinton”. You can see why he felt obliged to say so, but it won’t be easy for him to defend the idea that Clinton is the worst presidential prospect he can think of.
Really Jeb? You really cannot think of anyone that could possibly be worse?
But wait…he will use resources as president to force Americans to buy Israeli goods……
Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush has promised that if he is elected president next November he will deploy the full might of the US Department of Justice to crack down on the movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel.
“On day one I will work with the next attorney general to stop the BDS movement in the United States, to use whatever resources that exist,” the former Florida governor told the Republican Jewish Coalition in a speech on Thursday.
Seriously Jeb? You gonna make it illegal to boycott? You’re a tool!
Poor Jeb is struggling……how long before the GOP donors see him for what is is…..a presidential loser?
