• Jeb Bush: NSA Spying the Best Part of the Obama Admin

    Jeb Bush is running a weird pre-presidential campaign.

    He’s been vocal and supportive of several issues that conservatives and libertarians abhor, from comprehensive immigration reform to Common Core.

    And now Jeb Bush is supporting Obama’s expanded NSA surveillance program, which many on the right, left, and center are against.

    When asked by talk radio host Michael Medved what’s the one thing he likes about President Barack Obama’s presidency, Jeb Bush said the continuation of the NSA’s spying program.

    “I would say the best part of the Obama administration would be his continuance of the protections of the homeland using, you know, the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced,” Bush said on the Michael Medved radio show on Tuesday. “Even though he never defends it, even though he never openly admits it, there has been a continuation of a very important service, which is the first obligation I think of our national government is to keep us safe.”

    The NSA’s collection of phone calls, emails, and purchase history, on tens of millions of Americans was exposed when former NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked classified information to the press.

    About 63% of Americans are against their government’s surveillance program. Only 20% favor the controversial program according to a new Amnesty International USA poll.

    The NSA spying program won’t help Jeb Bush who’s surely going to be painted as a legacy candidate who’s too similar to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

    Just yesterday, Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) said he thought the easiest Republican presidential candidate to possibly work with in passing a comprehensive immigration reform bill into law is Jeb Bush.
