It’s not Brit Hume making the comparison between Ronald Reagan and Jeb Bush; rather, Hume is responding to a piece in Commentary, “When Conservatives Play the Purification Game.”
What if conservatives held Reagan to the same standards as they now hold Gov. Jeb Bush and other candidates? ” The greatest conservative politician in the 20th century and one of the greatest presidents in American history would have been deemed a RINO, unprincipled, in favor of far too much government in people’s lives, and unable to win over limited-government conservatives,” writes Peter Wehner.
Is there any way for Jeb Bush to shed his RINO image and win over conservative Republicans? He’s certainly no Reagan, is he?
So, are we looking at a Bush vs. Clinton race in 2016?
