Why Jeb Bush is Losing the Race

The GOP presidential candidates held their third debate on Wednesday, October 28.  There has never been a better, more dynamic example of the “Haves” vs. the “Have Nots” than at that debate. 

By “have”, I mean “courage”.  The debate showed the viewers the courage of the non-establishment candidates versus the lack of courage of the cowardly go-along-to-get-along, give-up-and-hope-we-don’t-lose-votes, old-guard Republicans.

Specifically, the non-establishment candidates tore into the CNBC moderators and pointed out, in glaring detail, how the moderators were biased and were asking stupid questions rather than asking substantive questions that the audience wanted to hear the answers to.

Ted Cruz started it. He was asked a very loaded question about his opposition to the budget deal cut by Obama and the House Crybaby Boo-Hoo Boehner.  Ted Cruz immediately fired on the moderators with:

"The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media. This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions – ‘Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain?’  ‘Ben Carson, can you do math?’ ’John Kasich, will you insult two people over here?’  ‘Marco Rubio, why don't you resign?’ ‘Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?’ How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?"  Saying that drew thunderous applause from the audience.

A short time later Marco Rubio accused the Mainstream Media of being Hillary Clinton’s “Ultimate SuperPAC”.  He specifically said:

I know the Democrats have the ultimate SuperPac. It’s called the mainstream media. And I’ll tell you why. Last week, Hillary Clinton went before a committee. She admitted she had sent e-mails to her family saying, “Hey, this attack at Benghazi was caused by Al Qaeda-like elements.” However, she spent over a week afterwards telling the families of those victims and the American people that it was because of a video. And yet the mainstream media is going around saying it was the greatest week in Hillary Clinton’s campaign.  But it was the week Hillary got exposed as a liar.”

Ben Carson joined the fray by pointing out how the audience recognizes the media’s bias, and Chris Christie got so tired of being interrupted in his answers that he bluntly told the moderator that all the interrupting was rude, “even in New Jersey”.

But, in contrast, Jeb Bush and John Kasich didn’t fire on the moderators, no matter how biased the questions were. They didn’t put up a fight at all, instead choosing to attack the other candidates.  Why?  Probably because they were afraid of “alienating the moderates”.  In other words, they didn’t want to risk losing votes, so they let themselves be made to look like idiots.

And that’s why they’re losing in the polls.  Nobody supports Bush and Kasich and nobody’s going to vote for them because they’re cowards.  They’re so worried about losing votes that they don’t call out evil.  But wars aren’t won by generals who let the enemy take shots at them. They’re won by generals who attack the enemy and take out their forces. Bush and Kasich just showed that they won’t attack the enemy. They’d rather sit back and hope that their appeasement strategy will work. 

But if Bush can’t stand up to the LameStream Media, he sure as heck won’t be able to stand up to Hillary in a debate, or any world leaders.

It’s time for a major change in Conservative politics. It’s time the liberal forces in America were exposed and then taken down.  And we saw the beginning of that change tonight.
