Who is John Ellis Bush? About Jeb Bush…

  • “So would a third President Bush be good for America?
    Well, it depends on whether you’re a fan of George W. Bush’s presidency,
    because Bush is a whole lot like his older brother. He’s a staunch conservative
    on everything except immigration, and he’s a foreign policy hawk who backed
    all of Bush’s military interventions overseas.  We say no thanks. 
    Here are nine reasons not to vote Jeb Bush for president — in case you needed them.”

    1. He’d Be Terrible for Women
