The Daily GOP Ignominious: Jeb Bush Goes Mush Mouth On Asian Immigrants

In, Jeb Bush, not Hispanics, The Daily GOP Ignominious, The Daily Kos, white nationalism on August 25, 2015 at 7:44 PM

We are a day or so late on reporting this next item, but it is classic Jeb Bush, classic GOP, and sickening in its existential reality. The art of deflection never works well, when applied in matters of race and ethnicity avoiding one’s SNAFU via deflection is frankly vary non-presidential.

The Daily Kos
OMFG Jeb! speaking with reporters earlier today in McAllen, Texas:
Partial transcript:
REPORTER: Do you worry that using the term “anchor babies” could affect your ability to win the Hispanic vote?
BUSH: No. Look, as I said in Spanish, my background, my life, uhh, the fact that I’m immersed in the immigrant experience…this is, this is ludicrous for the Clinton Campaign and others to suggest that somehow I’m using a derogatory term. What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed, where there’s organized efforts, and frankly, it’s more related to Asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized efforts, taking advantage of a noble concept with birthright citizenship. I support the fourteenth amendment. Nothing about what I’ve said should be viewed as derogatory towards immigrants at all. This is all how politics plays, and by the way, I think we need to take a step back and chill out a little bit as it relates to the political correctness…
Good save, Jeb! Whew. LoL

END The Daily Kos……

While the insertion of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race has proven the extent of white nationalism inherent in the GOP (on the downside), it has revealed a virtual universal abyss among GOP candidates regarding issues outside the scope of conferred white privilege.
