If there isn’t one already, there will soon be a Hitler video about the Jeb! campaign. There is definitely a bunker mentality as Mr. Inevitable Dynasty has become Mr. Stuck-in-Single-Digits-While-Donald-Trump-Drinks-His-Milkshake. Recently, the Jeb! camp met with its megadonors (i.e. “Jeb’s Base”) to convince them to keep writing checks because despite Jeb’s low and sinking poll numbers, eventual victory was inevitable. Out of that meeting leaked this slide:
“Voters have ADD” and “Cash matters.” In two bullets, we have a summary of how the Bushies feel about the voting public, and what is really important to them.
The Bush’s have always projected a sense that they did not see elected office as an opportunity to advance the priorities of the voters; but rather to use powers to drive the public down a path of their choosing, because they knew best by virtue of breeding and education. They are indistinguishable from Democrats in that regard. It’s why I have never warmed to the Bush sense of entitlement about high elected office.
