“Jeb Bush Moving Closer to 2016 Run”
With Christie or Rubio as his running mate, if I had to guess.
And why not? I mean, it’s not like if you put your ear to the ground and listen attentively you can’t here the slow, steadily-building swell for yet another Bush in the White House — particularly when we finally have the right one this time, a man not tainted with a Reagan connection, one not responsible for two wars of aggression, a cowboy posture, and some malapropisms.
This one is so perfect, in fact, that he doesn’t want principles getting in the way of the government solving our problems efficiently and effectively!
And if the last several years have taught us anything, it’s that grass-roots Republicans are pissed off that they haven’t been getting enough government fixes to the problems that plague them. Brought on by government fixes. They don’t want limited government: that’s for kooks and cranks and fringe crazies who hate our country; instead, they want somebody who can step in and manage the expansive federal government in a way that everyone prospers from it. They want a balanced approach. And if that means making common-sense compromises on raising taxes and open borders, and refusing to be bullied by far right extremists into pushing austerity measures that would hurt children and the elderly, then by golly, we need to be willing to make that deal.
I just hope to God it’s Karl Rove and his “Conservative Victory Project” who are the ones who will propel this new kind of practical and minority-friendly rich white “conservative” into the Presidency.
Because as I noted yesterday, America is thirsty. And the only cure is a third giant pitcher of ice-cold Bush.
