It’s been said that truth is stranger than fiction – especially when it comes to politics – and here’s another example.
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said in a January 5 interview with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade that his brother, George W. Bush, would be a good addition to his campaign. That’s because he’s embraced by conservatives in the same way that Democrats are fond of former President Bill Clinton.
Here’s part of the interview via Raw Story:
“Kilmeade: Is that something that you think, if he could tell your story as well as you can if not better, is that something you’re considering?
“Jeb Bush: Yeah. It is something to consider because he is very popular. And I also know I need to go earn this. My brother has been a strong supporter and I love him dearly. He’ll continue to play a constructive role.”
Bush also insisted that he was the one candidate who could beat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton even though “most of the pundits [are] writing my campaign off.”
We think that Jeb probably believes what he’s saying, but given the extreme anger and frustration with incumbent politicians, we don’t believe this move would improve his chances of winning the GOP nomination.
Do you think bringing George W. Bush on to Jeb’s campaign will land him the Republican nomination for president?
