It looks like the GOP Establishment won’t go quietly into the good night. After he lost the presidential primary in dramatic fashion to Donald Trump – and was originally considered a front-runner to be the nominee – Jeb Bush laid out his “vision” to reclaim the Republican Party from Donald Trump’s “nativist rhetoric.”
Here’s the story and some of the Jebster’s thoughts from Zero Hedge:
“While he has no doubt tapped into the anxiety so prevalent in the United States today, I do not believe Donald Trump reflects the principles or inclusive legacy of the Republican Party. And I sincerely hope he doesn’t represent its future.
“Trump’s abrasive, Know Nothing-like nativist rhetoric has blocked out sober discourse about how to tackle America’s big challenges. Rebuilding the trust in American government requires that we be the catalysts that lead to change.
“Let’s move beyond the daily fray of who is disparaging whom on Twitter, and rally around a policy agenda that will lead to greater economic growth, revitalized leadership on the global stage and a strengthened democracy.”
Given the resounding rejection of Bush and other Establishment candidates, we don’t think most conservatives care what Jeb Bush thinks about re-building the GOP. It’s obvious that voters believe Trump is a better catalyst for change than the Establishment GOP.
Many conservatives don’t see the point of having America as the world’s policeman and the “leader on the global stage.” Trump repeatedly said the Iraq War was a bad idea, and this resonated with millions of Republican voters.
What percentage of conservative Republican voters really care about what Jeb Bush thinks of the future of the GOP?
