The Teabag GOP Is Batshit; Jeb Is Noticing That as He Prepares to Run
If this is true, Bush is certainly right. As for his candidacy, though, the answer is not just no, but HELL NO. This isn’t Saudi Arabia or North Korea. Dynastic rule does not belong anywhere in the 21st century, but especially not here.
For some time, rumors have been circulating as to whether former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will run for the president in 2016. As Bush further considers the possibility of running, he’s seems to have realized one thing: the current GOP is completely insane.
Yesterday, Bush announced a game plan of sorts should he follow through and run for president in 2016, according to The Huffington Post. Bush said a successful candidate must be willing to “lose the primary to win the general.” As strange as the rationale behind that analogy may seem, Bush is saying that a candidate must stick to his guns, which is respectable.
However, for the GOP, sticking to its guns means government shutdowns, holding hostage tax plans that benefit the poor, gutting healthcare reform, and inciting ignorance on Net Neutrality (we’re looking at you, Ted Cruz). Traditionally, Bush is a moderate Republican. But today’s GOP are just as extreme, loud, and obnoxious as ever.
“I don’t know if I’d be a good candidate or a bad one,” said Bush. “But I kinda know how a Republican can win, whether it’s me or somebody else. [The candidate] has to be much more uplifting, much more positive, much more willing to be practical,” when compared to past Republicans.
