Election 2016 Hillary Clinton Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush is Delusional


If Jeb Bush finds himself running against Hillary Clinton next year, how will he pan her campaign?

Bush reportedly told a group of Republican lobbyists yesterday that Clinton’s campaign would be a “campaign of the past.”

According to one attendee, Bush talked about how the expected campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state under President Obama, would “be a campaign of the past dating back to what happened in the 1990s” and that his “will be candidacy of future” focusing on positive immigration reform, among other issues.

If it were anyone else considering a run against Hillary Clinton, I’d say this might work. But it isn’t anyone else. It’s Jeb Bush.

Jeb Bush.

If voters have a choice between two campaigns “of the past,” I believe they would choose the 1990s version which led to economic prosperity, not the 2000s version that led to economic ruin.

If we’re being honest, a campaign between Clinton and Bush is unlikely to happen while Jeb continues to pretend that Republican primary voters will go along with his relatively moderate positions on immigration reform and Common Core education. His Republican opponents will attack him for both.

    Ed Kilgore pointed out yesterday that Alec MacGillis of the New Yorker torpedoed the myth of Jeb Bush as an education reformer who actually cares about education. Bush’s record in Florida shows he’s just another privatizer, albeit one who understands how much public money could be funneled to the testing industry under Common Core.

    There’s no way he’s going to be the GOP candidate for president, so it doesn’t much matter, but Jebbie is less of a new kind of R than it might at first appear.


  • And of course he ignores what Clinton’s been doing since the Clinton Presidency. Maybe he’s never heard of Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

      Of course it does not matter what she has done on her own accord. It only matters what her husband has done and when, because he is Teh Man and she is subservient to him. In fact, her accomplishments are also his.
