RUBIO PUTS HIS MENTOR OUT OF HIS MISERY

RUBIO PUTS HIS MENTOR OUT OF HIS MISERY
Six months from now, when the conventional wisdom is a burbling brook of lamentations for Jeb Bush not being the Republican nominee, it will be said that it is too bad that his party was too conservative, too racist and too angry for him.

They will say that if only the GOP had picked Bush instead of whomever that the discourse would be finer, the talk would be more substantive and Hillary Clinton would have a moderate peer to face, rather than a right-wing ideologue.

No doubt, the very same moderators who made a complete hash of Wednesday’s debate – the one where the blood drained out of the Bush restoration – will be among those tut-tutting the party’s pick and lamenting that Republicans are so crazy that they couldn’t even pick the sensible choice.

They will be wrong.

The picture Bush painted in recent weeks was that of an angry, expensive slog to the nomination, slashing at the very candidates he would be championing if he were happily basking in Florida with his family. Young and Hispanic, female, brimming with ideas on issues like education and entitlement reform – the very rebirth of the Republican Party for which he had once pleaded.

After those shoots of grass were mowed down, Bush would then immolate the surviving candidate from the other side of the party and rule the wasteland of his creation.

Sounds like a blast…

Rubio delivered the blow not with anger, not with glee, but with the air of cold, clinical truth: “Someone has convinced you that attacking me is going to help you,” he told Bush. “It’s not.”

It seemed almost like an intervention.

Another stumble for Bush. I had interest in Bush at the beginning. But he sounds so "Wah wha wha" and dull that the only campaigner with less skill is Hillary.

I sure hope so.....Go home JEBU
