Conservative Radio host Mark Levin … who has an audience size that is the envy of every working network journalist … described Republican Jeb Bush (who may run for president in 2016) as a “good moderate Democrat.” This did not sit well with with the Mainstream Media, some members of which felt obliged to testify on behalf of Mr. Bush’s conservative bona fides.
Jeb Bush. Not conservative enough. Try as I might, it remains impossible to see these two concepts as even remotely related. John Ellis Bush, the second son of George Herbert Walker Bush and Barbara Bush, who during his first run for Florida governor in 1994 cheerfully called himself a head-banging conservative, a hang-’em-by-the-neck conservative … who during his second run for Florida governor in 1998 had to craft for himself a more compassionate persona so as not to scare off independent voters … that Jeb Bush has come to be viewed with suspicion by the uber-conservative, Tea Party wing of his Republican Party?
One can conclude from this that… um… the MFM really, really want Jeb Bush to be the Republican nominee against the Hillary in 2016. Because, obviously, they think he will present interesting and thoughtful ideas and provide Americans with a viable alternative to Mrs. Cinton and they will treat him with complete fairness and respect.
And if you believe that, let me tell you about my sister-in-law who made enough to buy a Ferrari working on the internet…
Anyway, I don’t deny that Jeb Bush is more conservative than Hillary or Obama. But he is a Bush, and after three Bush terms, we know how they govern, and we know that… philosophically, at their core, they believe that Government Knows Best and, in that very significant way they are of one mind with the Obamas, the Clintons, the Kennedies, and all the other statists.
