There are signs Jeb Bush plans a hard push to the Pansexual Left.
Of course, the mainstream media doesn’t call Jeb’s direction a “hard push to the Left.” Instead, the NBC News headline is: “In Early Stages, Jeb Bush Runs to the Middle, Shuns Some Conservative Stances.”
But if it looks “middle” to NBC, we have every reason to believe that Bush is actually quite Liberal. And indeed, consider what the report actually says:
Bush’s approach, at least at the start of his candidacy, seems to acknowledge that Tea Party activists and other more conservative Republicans will oppose some of his stances, and he is trying to get them to accommodate his views, as opposed to Bush appeasing them. He seems eager to confront his opponents on some issues, as Bush has repeatedly defended Common Core, a kind of finger-in-the-eye to the many conservatives who oppose the education standards.
And there is one obvious sign Bush is likely to continue this approach: the presence of Mike Murphy on his campaign team. Murphy, a well-known figure in the party who was the chief strategist for John McCain’s 2000 campaign, has long been one of the loudest voices of change within the Republican Party.
In 2011, Murphy publicly warned that his one-time client, Romney, was making a mistake in attacking rival Rick Perry for being too soft on the issue of illegal immigration. This strategy, Murphy predicted, would eventually be “a great wedge issue for President Obama to beat up the Republican nominee with.” Murphy was right: Obama won overwhelmingly among Latino voters on Election Day in 2012.
Two years later, Murphy, again breaking with many in his party, joined a group of Republicans signing a legal brief urging the Supreme Court to strike down Proposition 8, California’s ban on gay marriage.
Now, the consultant is part of a small circle of longtime advisers to Bush who are running a campaign that seems intent on creating a more moderate Republican Party.
So Murphy is “middle” in his politics because he signed onto an argument that not only advocated the existence of homosexual “marriage,” but also suggested that the Federal government had the authority to overturn a state decision settled through a democratic process.
That’s not “middle”; that’s radical big government centralism and pervertocracy. Why even be a Republican if that is what they want?
