That, of course, would be the second least-compelling presidential candidate in the field, Jeb Bush:
Likely presidential contender Jeb Bush said Thursday the Senate should confirm attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch despite objections from many of his fellow Republicans. The former Florida governor appeared Thursday night at a GOP “Politics and Pies” event on the eve of a gathering Friday that will bring together more than a dozen other potential and declared contenders for the nomination.
Lynch was nominated by President Barack Obama in November, but Senate Republicans have delayed a confirmation vote. Bush said presidents should have the right to pick their teams, adding that Lynch’s confirmation would at least speed up the departure of current Attorney General Eric Holder, deeply unpopular with the GOP.
That’s the Bush family — no tactics and no strategy, either. Honestly, the entire clan is the perfect dupe/punching bag for the Left, who must thank whatever deity they don’t believe in for the gift that keeps on giving.
“If someone is supportive of the president’s policies, whether you agree with them or not, there should be some deference to the executive,” he said. “It should not always be partisan.” In Jackson, Mississippi, earlier, Bush said he will make up his mind “in relatively short order”’ whether to seek the Republican nomination and is not concerned that several rivals have a head start in declaring their candidacies.
“I’m on a journey to kind of measure support,” Bush said. “Other people’s processes are not really that relevant to me. I’ll make up my mind in relatively short order. I’m excited about just the possibility of being in a position to consider it.”
Maybe you ought to stop considering, Jeb, since you have only a slightly better chance of being elected president than the soon-to-collapse Hillary! candidacy. You’re both figments of the political media’s imagination.
