Marco Rubio’s clownish behavior making Jeb Bush look statesmanlike

For months I have complained that the national political media has adopted a narrative that makes Jeb Bush look like an above-the-fray statesman. Now I can completely understand the point of reference used to create this narrative – it is none other than Bush’s one time protege’ Marco Rubio. This week’s Republican Presidential Debate on […]

Is a Jeb surge around the corner?

Jeb Bush has been left for dead by so many. But he’s staying alive, continuing to raise money and rack in political endorsements. His operation is built out in many of the early primary states and he shows no signs of giving up. Much like John Kerry at this point in 2003, Bush is seen […]

Reactionary Behavior and Dishonesty a Jeb Bush Staple

Worrying poll numbers forcing Jeb Bush to rewrite history?

Despite all of the discussion that Governor Jeb Bush is a principled thinker we’ve stated time and again his is simply an opportunistic politician who lacks his brother’s gift for connecting with ordinary folks or his father’s gift for intellect. Instead Bush’s political career is characterized by a bad temper and sense of entitlement. The […]

Jeb Bush’s Reaganomics could tank US economy but reward Wall Street

The political chattering class all seem to view Donald Trump as a clown with marginal views. However, the real clown in the GOP Presidential race is Jeb! Bush, whose adherence to right wing talking points makes him a politician extraordinaire on the cocktail party circuit, but increasingly irrelevant to regular voters. While Trump has offered […]

Jeb Bush TV Ad borderline laughable

Jeb Bush’s new TV ad was rolled out today and from a Florida perspective it is laughable. Bush starts the ad taking a shot at self-promoters a clear shot at Donald Trump. However, Bush has been perhaps the most consistently shameless self-promoter in politics nationally over the last twenty years with the exception of President […]

Years of arrogance and entitlement catching up with Jeb Bush
