• Allen West Rips Jeb Bush: ‘Last Thing We Need Is A Big Gov’t Republican Running Against A Bigger Gov’t Democrat’

    Jeb Bush announced Tuesday that he is edging closer to deciding whether or not he would pursue a 2016 presidential run. Bush said he was “actively” exploring the decision.

    That’s all it took for click-thirsty media minions to fire off their seemingly pre-written Bush VS Clinton opinion articles.

    “It’s instructive to compare Jeb’s numbers in our NBC/WSJ poll to Hillary Clinton’s,” one (of many) write ups said.

    However, former Congressmen and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West isn’t playing the big government establishment’s game.

    He told Sean Hannity that the last thing the GOP needs in 2016 as a candidate is a “big government progressive Republican running against a bigger government progressive socialist Democrat.” (Video above.)

    He added, “I think the challenge for governor Bush is going to be his policies on illegal immigration and also Common Core.”

    Indeed, Jeb Bush characterized illegal immigrants breaking the law to get into America as an “act of love.” Jeb Bush has also been the Republican face of the plan to nationalize education standards through Common Core. Bush said he finds opposition to Common Core “troubling,” and said he had “lost patience” with those opposing Common Core.

    Jeb Bush is not “going to be able to go out and win a presidential nomination without proving to conservatives that limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty, our free market and free enterprise system” are values that he would fight for, West added.

    A new Washington Post-ABC News poll of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents shows Jeb Bush leading the pack without Mitt Romney–and when I say “leading,” I mean his support is embarrassingly low.

    Jeb gets a laughable 15 percent of the Republican vote, without Mitt Romney running against him.
