Marco Rubio Schools Jeb Bush on Foreign Policy

5/17/2015  articles

Jeb Bush continues to provide the major media with space -filler gaffes. His problem is the Bush name itself. According to Washington Post writers Philip Rucker and Ed O’Keefe “For four straight days he gave wavering, uncertain and incongruous answers to questions about the Iraq war as he struggled with whether and how much to differentiate himself from his older brother, former president George W. Bush.”

Jeb Bush is having problems selling the Core Curriculum agenda to the American people especially the conservatives.

According to the Post, “By contrast, a top rival, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla), laid out a muscular, if nonspecific, foreign policy Wednesday, in a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations.” The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the premier internationalist organization in America.

Although he is a former two term governor of Florida, when the media tosses him a soft ball question about his Iraq policy, he stumbles with a weak “Yes” or “I don’t know.”

His tepid showing with the media and fellow governors has obviously got him no- where close to victory in the race for the White House. This weak showing brought a rejoinder from New Jersey’s GOP Governor Chris Christi who is no role model for a great governor or even president, though he keeps trying.

Christie says that Jeb Bush should answer the questions put to him and forget his role as GOP gadfly.

The longtime conservative group, For America, headed by conservative activist L. Brent Bozell, makes it plain to Bush that they plan to topple him.

“If Jeb Bush is nominated, Hillary Clinton is elected. There is no doubt in my mind,” said Bozell, “Republicans can’t win without a base that is inspired.”

Attention Republicans: Get active in your local Republican organization. Your party will be in need of help - your help.

The same goes for you Democrats. Get active in the party. Understand where it is headed—to victory or oblivion. Use your help to get things moving in the direction you want. Don’t complain. Move on with a positive victory program. Then celebrate.

There’s good news ahead for parents and students: The interest rates on federal loans to college students and their parents are scheduled to drop this fall.

Note about deaths caused by defective ignition switches on older GM small cars: They’ve reached 100, according to a fund run by Kenneth Feinberg and Camille Biros. GM expects total payouts to victims to top out at $600 million.

Post writer Chico Harlan writes: “Over the last three months an eye-opening trend has appeared in U.S. jobs data: African Americans are making notable gains.

“During that span, the unemployment rate for whites has held flat at 4.7 percent. But for Blacks? It’s fallen from 10.4 percent to 9.6 percent, hitting single digits for the first time in the recovery.

Meanwhile, the gap in labor force participation between blacks and whites is the most narrow since September of 1999. It has fallen from 10.4 percent to 9.6 hitting single digits for the first time in the recovery.
