Jeb is not so much weak as he is wrong-headed. He will strive mightily to drag the Republican party into the same old alliance with the Demorodents.
No, Jeb’s problem is not lack of balls but a lack of vision and he like Obama is surrounded by the same sycophantic fools that have dragged us into the longest and deepest depression since 1929-1940. In just a few more years this depression will claim the all-time record for economic destruction and concurrent record high unemployment, record loss of income for working people, record loss of labor force participation.
You are absolutely correct about Jeb being too stupid to learn what conservatives want—we want the government to shrink to half its size and to eliminate most of the federal “cabinet” level departments.
If we cut coporate and personal and capital gains tax rates, the US workforce, still the most productive on the palnet, will catapult the economy to real growth, real income growth, and massive capital formation.
Or not. I remain unconvinced there is anyone on the horizon who has the balls to do that—most especially I cannot see the will to do anything like it in Jeb Bush.
So is a right turn still viable? I really cannot say, but I am not optimistic. Too many rice bowls to guard and the entrenched bureaucracies, federal and state and local are going to be defended by any and all means neccessary.
The ends justify the means and the purpose of any bureaucracy is to reward its friends and punish its enemies.
More likely is widesporead civil disobedience, revolts in the streets as the last of the rapidly dwindling private assets held are dissipated by everyday people just trying to survive.
You can only fit so many people into a house and you can only afford so much for food, energy and transportaion before people as a rule begin to go hungry, not as an exception.
My father will be 86 this year. It will be a blessing if he could avoid watching and experiencing the absolute destruction of America.
Gee that was harsh. Meant every word of it.
he wants to govern like LBJ
