If anyone was thinking that Jeb Bush would be a different type of president and not like his father and brother, you need to stop believing that and realize that Jeb Bush would be no different and would simply act as a fourth term to the Bush family dynasty. Jeb Bush has made it clear that if he is elected president, the United States would turn back the progress the Obama administration has made with Cuba, going as far as cutting off talks and placing them back on the terror watch list. Jeb Bush would also have blind support for Isreal’s policies and tighten sanctions with Iran, while urging NATO to deploy more troops to Eastern Europe to counter Vladimir Putin. Our foreign policy would go from cooperation and negotiations to labeling countries as “evil doers” and counting on the military to solve problems over peaceful negotiations.
The Washington Post has a great article out today that details how Jeb Bush is very slowly turning into his brother.
“Far from running from or downplaying the views once expressed by his brother, George W. Bush, Jeb Bush is embracing them — and emphasizing them.”
“It’s clear when he calls for closer engagement with Arab leaders to combat the growing threat of the Islamic State. Or when he criticizes President Obama for pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq. It’s most apparent when he refers to “evil doers” — a formulation used widely by his brother — and argues that the United States needs to engage but doesn’t have to be ‘the world’s policeman,’ a view voiced by his brother that was also embraced by their father, George H.W. Bush.”
In recent years, nearly six in 10 Americans have believed that the Iraq war was not worth fighting, though Republicans have been slightly more supportive, according to polling by The Washington Post and other organizations. In more recent years, public opinion has similarly turned against the war in Afghanistan.
We don’t need a third term of the failed policy of George W. Bush. Join the fight to keep America going forward not backward.
