Jeb Bush said publically on Monday 11 June, that both Ronald Reagan and his father, George H.W. Bush, would have a hard time getting nominated by the more conservative voters in today’s Republican Party.
“Ronald Reagan would have, based on his record of finding accommodation, finding some degree of common ground, as would my dad, they would have a hard time if you define the Republican party, and I don’t, as having an orthodoxy that doesn’t allow for disagreement, doesn’t allow for finding some common ground,”
Jeb Bush said he sees the ultra-conservative and partisan standards of today’s GOP as “disturbing,” but called “this dysfunction … temporary.”
Jeb Bush said “It’s just a different environment left and right,” Jeb Bush said during his “dad’s time and Ronald Reagan’s time,” they “got a lot of stuff done with a lot of bipartisan support”, and that Reagan “would be criticized for doing the things that he did.” unquote
Jeb Bush and the Bush Clan have all but have proclaimed their superiority and themselves the political GOP Republican Party Mantle by virtue of their Presidential dynasty, by pitting constitutional conservative Republican President Ronald Reagan of yesterday, against the Constitutional Conservative Tea Party People of today.
Now, this is what I said yesterday, and is what I say now and tomorrow about Jeb Bush and the Bush presidential dynasty clan-
Jeb Bush is a political opportunist hack, seeking to rewrite political history, and the image and reality of President Ronald Reagan, vs the Bush's, against the constitutional conservative Tea Party folks of today.
The only reason the Bush's were ever in the Presidential White House picture, is because of Ronald Reagan and all the Reagan Conservative people, not because the Bush's were GOP establishment Republicans, but in spite of it.
Let me tell you why- The "connection" to a real conservative, President Ronald Reagan.
If it weren't for Ronald Reagan choosing GHW Bush as his VP, the Bush's would never have been elected President, period. This connection is the only reason they were selected by conservatives over others in the 1988 election, as well as the 2000 election. American conservatives do not love, nor have they ever loved the Bush's.
Secondly, the Tea Party uses President Reagan as a template for what we want and need in a conservative leader of America. Reagan was not prefect, but no one is, but that does not mean you should not strive for perfection in applying conservative values and principles, not the abandonment of those values and principles under the guise of collusional appeasement, ie; their so called compromise BS.
Ronald Reagan today would absolutely agree with every word I have just said, as he practiced it everyday, he didn't just give lip service like these liberal progressive GOP RINO's like Jeb Bush.
In 1976, then Gov Reagan was told in a letter by prominent GOP politicians at the time, to back down from challenging then President Ford. Reagan told them all to go to hell. Reagan stood firm for what he believed in, and mauled President Ford in advocating conservative values and principles over progressive GOP establishment policies at the RNC Convention in 1976.
And do you think those very same GOP progressive establishment RINO's like the Bush's, would have ever have implemented Reaganomics, that saved not only the US Economy from Carter's stagflationary economic recession disaster, but the GOP Party as well. And do you think they would have defeated the USSR. No.. The Bush's would have appeased and compromised every piece of American Sovereignty. And they would have continued the same old stalemate stand off diplomacy of detente', instead of setting an aggressive policy to defeat the Soviet Communists.
You show me anything by the Bush's that even comes close to what Constitutional Conservative Republican President Ronald Wilson Reagan has said, done, achieved, and accomplished in America and the World, other than to be elected US President. Obama was elected US President and was awarded a meaningless Nobel Peace Prize for just being elected.. Does that put him in the same standing light of greatness as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or Ronald Reagan.. No, it does not.
Jeb Bush, the Bush clan dynasty, and the rest of their progressive GOP establishment RINO buddies, can take their phony revisionism and attacks on Ronald Reagan and Reagan Tea Party Conservatives, and stick it where the sun don't shine.
This is what a great US President says, along with all he has accomplished giving credence and validity of all the words he ever spoke.
"Let us be sure that those who come after will say… we did everything that could be done."
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
Freedom ... must be fought for, protected, and handed on for [our children] to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children, what it was once like where men were free.
There can be no real peace while one American is dying some place in the world for the rest of us. We're at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind ... and ... if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record ... that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening."
~President Ronald Wilson Reagan~
