Jeb Bush on immigration in an interview at the George Bush Presidential Library Center in College Station, Texas:
“Yes, [illegals] broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love, it’s an act of commitment to your family.”
But I do agree with his statement about public schools and education:
“The system we have today with over 13,000 government-run, politicized, unionized monopolies probably is not the best governance model for 2014 and going forward.”
Understated, but true. Unfortunately he is a major mover and champion of Common Core, which basically wipes out and negates the above statement.
Naturally he was asked about running for POTUS in ’16 and he said he would decide by the end of the year, but if he did run, it would be on The Vision Thing ™ not nasty, mud-slinging politics of today.
It could be refreshing to have a candidate who doesn’t play down and dirty smash-mouth politics, but unfortunately the Democrats will continue to play smash-mouth because it works for them. It especially works for them when their GOP opponent is a “moderate” like McCain, Romney—or Jeb Bush.
