"Rook" has some thoughts on Jeb Bush. Jeb Bush has more money in his campaign coffers than everyone except Donald Trump, yet he has not yet garnered double digit poll numbers. Jeb has insisted he is his “own man”, yet he runs to his father and brother when his campaign falters. Jeb insists he is a Reagan Republican, yet he violates Reagan’s “Eleventh Commandment” by repeatedly attacking fellow Republican – and former protégé – Marco Rubio, when he should be on the attack against Hillary Clinton and the democrats.
In his attacks on Rubio he comes across like a petulant Prince of Political Royalty who expected to take the nomination in a cake walk, but has been reduced to throwing hissy-fits out of overwhelming frustration and disappointment. Jeb first tried attacking then frontrunner Donald Trump, but Trump’s Muhammad Ali like counterpunches left Jeb semi-conscious and praying for the bell. Rubio, always the gentleman, is a safer target.
Jeb’s attacking fellow Republicans leaves his judgment and party loyalty in question. His less-than-presidential demeanor has raised real doubts among his donors, many of whom have already begun to shift to Rubio.
It is not too soon for Jeb to throw in the towel and throw his support to Rubio, which might be the difference in whether or not Trump gets the nomination. No thinking Republican wants that!
