We Fear for Our Country, Governor Bush
Jeb Bush. “Former Governor Florida Jeb Bush said yesterday that he found it troubling that the 2012 presidential candidates are, quote, ‘Appealing to people’s fears and emotion on the campaign trail.’ Bush expressed concern about the type of rhetoric the candidates were using, without getting specific or naming names.” Here’s a quote, Jeb Bush to Fox News: “I used to be a conservative, and I watch these debates and I’m wondering: I don’t think I’ve changed, but it’s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people’s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective.”
I have all the respect in the world for Jeb Bush, but I really wonder how many Republicans actually understand what’s going on? Fear and emotion? Governor Bush, the people of this country are scared to death without the Republicans saying a word! Republican conservative primary voters are already scared of what’s being done to their country. Yesterday, they have to hear Obama promise: In five more years, look out what I can do. Yeah, he gave an interview. By the way, this funny. He gave an interview to Univision radio, what the media is calling “the Latino Rush Limbaugh.” There is no Latino Rush Limbaugh! I am the Latino Rush Limbaugh.
But they’re out there saying that Obama’s told these people… And what he was doing, he was telling the Hispanic audience, “Look, I got five years coming to me. I’ll handle this illegal stuff next term when I don’t have any accountability, when I don’t have to run for reelection. Just hang in there is, be cool, be patient. I’ll take care of it.” That was the unspoken message from Obama to Univision radio. But presidential candidates are appealing to people’s fears and emotion? Uh, what do the Democrats do? Every day! Isn’t every day in this country a crisis that needs an immediate government solution right now? Isn’t that the Democrat Party modus operandi?
