What Does Jeb Bush Need Our Support For?
John Ellis Bush, who prefers that we all call him Jeb, given the nasty history of US presidents named Bush, is asking for your support. He wants you to go “all in for Jeb”.
To me, this request for the support of everyday Americans is astonishing, given that Jeb Bush already can support himself more than well enough on his own. Jeb Bush was born rich, and he has used his family’s wealth and power to gain even more wealth for himself,molten at the expense of others, on the boards of abusive employers such as Swisher Hygiene and mismanaged corporations such as Rayonier.
Jeb Bush took these positions not to serve the companies’ workers and investors, but to profit from them. He is showing the same selfish attitude with his presidential campaign. When he ought to seek ways to support the nation, Jeb Bush expects the nation to support him. When he ought to be offering to be all in for America, he asks America to be all in for Jeb instead.
Mr. Bush, this election is not about you.
