Jeb Bush Concures With Obama And Reid: What He Just Told Republicans To Do Shows Exactly How Much (Video)

Posted on April 18, 2015 by JayWill7497



At a political affair in New Hampshire, the individual many people believe may be the Republican nominee for president,


just said simply GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill should do anything that many in the party, particularly conservatives, are strongly in opposition to.





The ex – Florida governor told the town hall-style community that the Republican-controlled Senate should go ahead and validate President Obama’s choice for the country’s upcoming attorney general, Loretta Lynch.



Bush’s suggestions to Republican senators who stand as opposed to Lynch’s becoming the nation’s top law enforcement officer places him squarely at odds with a number of GOP senators, which include the two who have launched their run for the White House – Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Florida’s Marco Rubio.



The New York Times accounts that Bush shared with the Thursday night get together in Concord, N.H., that when it pertains to such nominations, “there should be some deference to the executive.”



“’I think presidents have the right to pick their team,’ Mr. Bush stated, in reaction to a questioner who inquired where he stood on the nomination of Ms. Lynch, now the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York.”



Nevertheless, at the same time that he stated President Obama should be awarded his choice for attorney general, Bush presented into a stinging criticism of the present head of the Justice Department, Eric Holder.





It wouldn’t be too far off to see that, in addition to being at odds with widespread GOP opinion about Loretta Lynch, Bush’s status seems to be at odds with itself. He indicates that the president’s nomination should be acceptable, even if that final results in the setting up of a powerful department head with whom he highly disagrees.



Breitbart News records that Jeb’s call for Lynch’s verification lines up him with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats in the upper chamber. Senate Republicans who intensely are at odds with the president’s selection have specified their arguments to Lynch’s indicated support for Obama’s executive amnesty that would grant millions of illegal immigrants certain rights and privileges typically enjoyed by U.S. citizens.





Fundamentally then, mainly because of Loretta Lynch’s agreement of Obama’s executive action on amnesty, Jeb Bush is aligning himself with the president’s situation on the highly controversial policy that angers many conservatives.

Breitbart also factors in the fact that Bush’s opposite status on the Lynch nomination comes at a time when polling is shifting against him.

“Bush’s move comes as he’s lost his frontrunner status-despite all the money he’s raking in-in the 2016 GOP primary to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who opposes Lynch’s nomination and now leads Bush in polls in all three early primary states.”

And just as early as yesterday, Friday, Politico reports on a fresh poll of 400 authorized Republican voters in Florida who put Rubio in the lead of his past political mentor in the Sunshine State.





“Rubio garnered 31 percent support from Republicans and essentially tied Bush’s 30 percent, according to a Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey conducted Tuesday through Thursday and shared exclusively with POLITICO.”



There is still no date reported for the full Senate’s consideration of the nomination of Loretta Lynch, who, if verified, would be the country’s first female African American to become attorney general.
