Jeb Bush Endorses Marco Rubio… Sort of

The Marco Rubio campaign is once again proving to be superior to their Florida competitor, Jeb Bush. While Bush’s campaign has been using tired Democrat talking points and liberal nastiness to attack Rubio, Rubio continues to refuse to play the mud-slinging game.

News leaked on Tuesday that the Bush campaign was preparing to attack Rubio’s record on abortion as “too conservative” and “extreme” in his stance AGAINST abortion. (I kid you not. As if Bush wasn’t in enough trouble already.) Instead of using vitriol to blunt the Bush attack, Rubio’s campaign responded with grace by using Bush’s own words in support of Marco Rubio against him.

Before Jeb Bush started the phony attack

“What Marco has, I think, is something that the Republican Party needs to have, which is a hopeful, optimistic message based on our principles…

I’m a HUGE Marco fan…

He’s probably the most articulate conservative on the scene today…

I look forward to him being a good President….

I’m so proud of his high voltage energy. I’m so proud of his enthusiasm. I’m so proud of his eloquence…

I’m a HUGE Marco fan.”

We all know the obvious problems with the Rubio campaign, particularly that he’s been too ready to endorse amnesty and support comprehensive immigration reform without first securing our borders. However, this is a problem with about half the GOP field (Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich, Rand Paul to name a few), so it’s difficult for them to attack him on his one real weakness. Instead, Jeb Bush and his people have chosen to launch underhanded, nasty and immoral attacks against Rubio on issues like abortion (among other scurrilous attacks).

The time has come for Jeb Bush to bid adieu to the presidential milieu, hang up his hat and wander off into the sunset.
