Thanks to Trump, we now know that many Republican voters eat up that stuff, like a take-home box from Golden Corral that never makes it home. Well before that exchange, a few of the former governor’s allies here were pushing for the campaign to make use of George Bush.
This would have been true if “stuff happens” was all the candidate said on the matter, but it wasn’t. Even Donald Trump is jumping on this S.E.
Democrats quickly seized on the comments, accusing Bush of flippantly brushing off the shooting at an Oregon community college last week that left 10 dead, including the shooter.
“I don’t find it offensive”, he said during a Sirius XM interview. Still, in this heavily conservative state, which delivered crucial primary wins both to George W. Bush and to his father, the first President George Bush, there is a growing view that Jeb Bush needs to embrace his older brother.
“You’re going to have these things happen and it’s a terrible thing to behold… We’re on your side, things can get better”, Bush said. Sure. But to imply that Jeb Bush somehow does not care about what happened in Oregon this week is absolutely unacceptable.
“I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name”, he said. This is what happens. Not only does he have the baggage of the worst presidency in our lifetime in his genes, he also has no record of accomplishment beyond winning the birth lottery and serving as Florida’s governor during the inflationary curve of a housing bubble. He says he was advocating for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, or creed, to unite under America and the set of shared values its people have, rather than remaining isolated in distinct cultural pockets. The Republicans had an entire day at their convention in 2012 basing the idea of the president saying you didn’t build that which was also an inartful statement. Tell us, the American voters, that you won’t give any of us any free stuff.
A week after presidential hopeful Jeb Bush (R) said the Washington Redskins’ name is not offensive and does not require a change, Donald Trump (R) weighed in on the issue, agreeing with Bush. It’s that then he went on and said well, you know, if a kid nearly drowns we don’t put up a new pool fencing law. So government response is okay for dealing with pools but not okay with guns perhaps because the pool lobby is not as strong as the gun lobby.
