The Bush family is not known for their conservative values. Certainly they’ve got “center-right” values on most things, but on many issues near and dear to conservative voters they are in the Clinton camp.
The Bushes and Clintons go way back. Bush41 kissed and made up with Bill Clinton and none of the Bush family dared to utter a word of criticism about Hillary and any of her “ethical lapses.” Some days I get the feeling that we have the old European monarchies intermarrying to protect monarchies in general with the Bush and Clinton families. We’re probably lucky that neither had a son.
Some say a picture is worth a thousand words, in this case, maybe a hundred thousand. And then some. Mr. Bush, WTF are you doing?
David Chalian, CNN’s political director tweeted that picture with the comment and to say it’s raised eyebrows is an understatement. Is there a cabal with the Bush and Clinton families at it’s center? You could certainly find a lot of people – more than a few are willing to vote for Jeb! – who are willing to believe that one.
Whether or not this portends anything is, at the moment, up for grabs. We’ll be watching as the political season heats up. I want to see if the Bush family is willing to level their Establishment guns at the Clinton Establishment. I’m guessing no, but I hope I’m wrong.
What do you think? Are the Bushes and Clintons joined at the hip? Are we looking at a reincarnation of Bonnie and Clyde? You tell me …
