Jeb Bush was speaking to his base, a group of religious zealot wingnut conservative Republicans who hate anyone who isn’t a religious zealot wingnut conservative Republican last week and said the debate over same-sex marriage should continue “irrespective of what the courts say.”
Oh honey, you can debate it all you want, but it’ll be over, so clutch your pearls, take a seat and be quiet.
But, while his own party wishes people like Jeb and Ben and Marco and Ted would just stop talking about the issue — the party wants it to just go away — these men Who Want To Be President are standing firm that they’ll do something if elected.
And here’s what they’ll do: they’ll pander to the base about the issue, and when SCOTUS declares equality the law of the land they’ll repeat how they will fight and fume and stomp, and, goddess forbid, if one of them does get elected, they’ll swing to the middle and quietly forget about it because they are all a bunch of lying hypocritical pandering asshats.
Still Jeb — no last name, please because, Bush — says he will not let the issue die:
“It’s got to be important over the long haul, irrespective of what the courts say. In a country like ours we should recognize the power of a man and a woman loving their children with all their heart and soul as a good thing, as something that is positive and helpful for those children to live a successful life."
Um, Jeb, you clinking clanking clacking collection of caliginous junk? No one … no one … believes, truly, that allowing same-sex couples the right to marry will hurt any child or destroy one single hetero-marriage.
That argument is as old and as lame as your asshat father’s ‘No New Taxes’ line and your dim-bulb brother’s ‘Mission Accomplished’ shiz.
Jeb? You can leave your last name out of it but it’s clear that you are the dumbest limb in the entire Bush.
