Oh, good grief.
Jeb Bush praised Mitt Romney today for having “common ground” with Barack Obama.
Bush also bragged about working with the Obama Administration.
Mitt Romney may have encountered a tough crowd addressing a group of Latinos Thursday, but former Florida Governor Jeb Bush transitioned easily from Spanish to English and drew loud applause on the issue of education reform and school choice – and complimented the presumptive Republican nominee’s rival, President Obama.
At the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials or NALEO in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Bush began by giving Romney a nod.
“We heard an excellent speech, I thought, from Mitt Romney, who is a supporter of education reform and of school choice,” Bush said.
However, in his next breath he aligned himself with Romney’s rival and repeated what has gained him headlines over the last few weeks, but he deeply believes in: Working across party lines works as well as having a more open debate.
“I am proud of the fact that as a former governor I was asked by [Education] Secretary [Arne] Duncan to introduce our current president of the United States in a high school in Miami because we share common ground,” Bush said to cheers from the crowd.
“And I don’t know about you, but when we find common ground we shouldn’t fight anymore, we should move on and build on that success. Apparently one can get in trouble when they say these kinds of things, but I happen to believe it’s the American way. There is enough to fight about … to me it’s important that we begin to focus on how do we build capacity for the next generation to maintain the greatness of our country.”
Jeb doesn’t seem to understand that the Democrat-media complex is only promoting this “let’s get along” crap because they do not have complete control over all branches of government today. We never heard this complaint from the media when Democrats were ramming their far left policies down our throats two years ago.
