Arguing With Himself

Jeb Bush now says he’s in favor of a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, sorta.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday that he would support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants “if you can craft that in law where you can have a path to citizenship where there isn’t an incentive for people to come illegally” — a position that puts him at odds with his new book, out today from Simon & Schuster.

That was after he had changed positions — going from supporting the idea to being against it — in the last few months… most notably since the November election when the GOP lost the Hispanic vote by wide margins.  Now he’s disagreeing with his own book.

I guess he’s covering all the bases in case he has to run against Jeb Bush in the primaries.

3 barks and woofs on “Arguing With Himself

  1. He sounds like Mittens, he was for it before he was against it. Does anywone have any social convictions in the Repub Party other than bigotry?

    • You mean like: Ahmurrca is for Gud, Xtian, caucasian hetero Patriots?

      Or: “When the last tree is felled the Messiah will come [and presumably relocate all our lumber, furniture and paper industries to someplace that still has wood]?”

      No? How about: “entitlements” are beautiful things for corporations (they’re people, after all, and they’re struggling) but not for individual voting citizens (cuz that makes them “takers” donchano)?

      Maybe: foeti are people, but babies are a drain on society and should be Hoam Schuled? And Teh Wimmins should be bearing all those foeti – but FSM forbid we should make that any easier for them, or they’ll start driving Cadillacs and visiting Planned Parenthood.

      … Hmmmm. Guess it all does boil down to bigotry.

  2. He’s got the Romney disease. Forget the idea of running for President, Jeb. Or do I repeat myself?
