  •  Jeb pragmatic? (5+ / 0-)

    Uh no, that is a big N-O!!!  Jeb is all about what all the Bush's are about and that is protecting corporations in which the Bush family has an interest.

    As governor, Jeb tried to outsource much of Florida governmental functions as he could.  That was how he was trying to empty all the state buildings. It was a boondoggle that Florida taxpayers are still funding.  Jeb Bush was also behind the FCAT test in public schools to determine which schools got additional state funding. FCAT has negatively affected public education in Florida because so much time is spent teaching the test instead of teaching children the necessary skills for later in life.  Jeb Bush was also behind public funding of vouchers for private schools, which is just another way to bleed money off public education in favor of private schools.  Most recently, Jeb was behind the move to dismantle the public education system in Florida by removing teacher tenure and tying all teacher retention and pay to test scores.

    Jeb Bush supported uber right wingnut Republican Marco Rubio over the more pragmatic populist Republican Charlie Crist from the very beginning.  Now Jeb about to get his come uppance on that one since Crist became an independent and is beating Rubio in every general election poll.

    Jeb Bush is simply the smarter Bush wolf brother in sheep's clothing.
