Editors: Going for 45
"Jeb Bush, who says he is considering running for president, is a strong conservative." The rhetorical trick here is to take the biggest knock on a person or thing and confidently state the opposite of the truth, hoping people buy it, like "Cap'n Crunch stays crunchy in milk." No, it does not. It's an attempt at persuasion, not accurate communication. Annoying but not surprising. They jumped on the Romney bandwagon early too, didn't they? [rdbrewer]
