Jeb Bush: Fool Us Three Times, You Don’t Get Fooled Again

By Charles Pierce, Esquire

16 June 15


In which Jeb (!) would like to run the family business.


he heart is the Jeb (!) and Jeb (!) is the heart.

That was the theme of Monday’s roll-out. Also, the corazon is the Jeb (!) and Jeb (!) is the corazon.

There was some serious bilingual humanizing going on in the extended run-up. We heard more about his efforts to curb domestic violence than we did about his work cutting taxes, and killing affirmative action, and the other more base-worthy moves from his days as governor. (Terri Schiavo’s, another victim of Jeb (!)’s great heart, was not mentioned.) He left the Jesus stuff to his son, George P., who is upholding the family tradition of avoiding the private sector by glomming onto an elected position in Texas. I kept waiting for a short word from the grateful heirs of Orlando Bosch, the Cuban terrorist whom Poppy Bush sprang from the hoosegow at Jebbie’s insistence.

According to the justice department in George Bush Sr’s administration, Bosch had participated in more than 30 terrorist acts. He was convicted of firing a rocket into a Polish ship which was on passage to Cuba. He was also implicated in the 1976 blowing-up of a Cubana plane flying to Havana from Venezuela in which all 73 civilians on board were killed. CIA memorandums strongly suggest, according to Bardach’s book, that Bosch was one of the conspirators, and quotes the then secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, as writing that the “US government had been planning to suggest Bosch’s deportation before Cubana airlines crash took place for his suspected involvement in other terrorist acts and violation of his parole.”

OK, past is past. Jeb (!) is not about the past. Not him. He’s especially not about that thin slice of the past that occurred during the years 2001-2009, when somebody Jeb (!) once met briefly was president of the United States and everything went to shit. Because Jeb (!) grew up in a small shoebox in the middle of the road, and is not one of the “pampered elites.”

(I have to admit that this was the point where I expected his pants to ignite.)

Honest to god, if you listened to the speech, which was written very well and delivered with the kind of smug WASP brio that so often eluded that chap who Jeb (!) bumped into back in the Aughts, you would believe that history began in January of 2009. He did make a little wink and a nod to the “first president I met on the day I was born, and the second one I met on the day I came home.” But, beyond that, you’d have thought he was found in a basket in the bullrushes along the banks of the Kennebec River.
