Go Jeb Bush Go (Frum & Friends push compassionate conservatism and Bush45)
The Daily Beast's David Frum Blog ^ | March 18, 2013 | Justin Green

I have my problems with Jeb Bush, but this passage of his speech at CPAC is not one of them.

"It is not a validation of our conservative principles if we can only point to the increasingly rare individual who overcomes adversity and succeeds in America," Bush said. "Here’s reality: if you’re fortunate enough to count yourself among the privileged, much of the rest of the nation is drowning.

"In our country today, if you’re born poor, if your parents didn’t go to college, if you don’t know your father, if English isn’t spoken at home, then the odds are stacked against you. You are more likely to stay poor today than at any other time since World War II," he said.

Bush lamented that liberals have "channeled the anger and frustration that comes from this oppressive dynamic and used it as an opportunity to attack the very idea of success itself," and argued that conservatism holds out the best path upward for those without power or means.

It’s like the GOP is intentionally going to run Jeb Bush.

How could anyone be so dense to think that anyone with the last name of Bush could win a presidential election?

Even if they had no connection to the Bush family, most low info voters will say no way. There’s too much stigma attached to the name, deserved or not. I would advise Jeb Bush not to run, if he asked why, I’d tell him your last name.

Could this be a desperate (but not implausible attempt to redeem the Bush name?

The unfortunate thing is that Jeb Bush may have been the better Bush.

If the GOP somehow manages to nominate Jeb Bush for President its going to be the election where nobody came to vote.

Say hello to President Clinton, America. The first LGBT President, offered up by the GOP whose campaign cry will be “What Difference Does It Make?”
