“If you want a president who defends the illegals and supports education system that makes our children stupid, then you can vote for the Democrat or Jeb Bush.” – Transcript below video
Hello, I’m Todd Starnes. The problem with Jeb Bush: That’s the subject of today’s commentary. Jeb Bush is running for the White House – Even has an exclamation mark behind his name for added effect. JEB! But quite frankly he should have used a question mark. There are a disturbing number unanswered questions surrounding what a Bush White House would look like. First and foremost the former governor’s position on the illegals. By all accounts, he seems to favor what looks very much like amnesty. Here’s what he said last March in remarks covered by the Daily Caller: The best plan, the most realistic plan, the grown up plan once you control the border is to say let these folks achieve earned legal status. If we just keep people in the shadows, we are not going to solve our immigration problems. Smells like and amnesty to me folks. We need a president willing to stop what is a de facto invasion of the United States.
And then there’s Common Core. In the past he’s called criticism of Common Core purely political and troubling. Folks, Common Core teaches kids to hate America. One lesson compared the Boston Tea Party to an act of terrorism. Another portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as racist slave owners. Under Common Core, the Islamic faith has been given accommodation in American classrooms. Children are being taught there was no true god but Allah. And yet Governor Bush seems to believe the critics of such nonsense are the problem.
So here’s the bottom line: If you want a president who defends the illegals and supports education system that makes our children stupid, then you can vote for the Democrat or Jeb Bush. Finally, I will be giving a major speech this weekend at our nation’s capital at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road it to the Majority conference.
