Shock: Jeb Bush Says Two Things Which Are Vaguely Conservative

Maybe his plan to run against conservatives in a Republican primary isn't working amazeballs like he expected.

Jeb: The climate is changing, but those who claim that the debate is over are "intellectually arrogant."

Earlier Wednesday, Obama warned in a commencement speech to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that climate change "constitutes a serious threat to global security (and) an immediate risk to our national security."

Shaking his head as the host of the house party, Richard Ashooh, quoted Obama's remarks, Bush chided the President for taking what he argued was the wrong path in addressing the problem.

"For the people to say the science is decided on this is really arrogant, to be honest with you," he continued. "It's this intellectual arrogance that now you can't have a conversation about it, even. The climate is changing. We need to adapt to that reality."

"The President's approach is, effectively, reduce economic activity to lower our carbon footprint," he said. "That's not what he says, of course, but that's the result of his policies."

Rather than focusing on carbon emissions, Bush said, the federal government should provide more incentives for lower carbon-producing forms of energy, like hydraulic fracking and horizontal drilling.

"I don't think it's the highest priority. I don't think we should ignore it, either," Bush said of climate change. "Just generally I think as conservatives we should embrace innovation, embrace technology, embrace science. ... Sometimes I sense that we pull back from the embrace of these things. We shouldn't."

Then he said Republicans had spent too much when his brother was president.

Jeb Bush kind of bores me so I've modified this article to make it more "street."

Jeb Bush Faults Brother for Lack of Budget Discipline 'N Shit

CONCORD, N.H. -- As Jeb Bush has faced questions over Iraq and the policies of his brother throughout recent days, he got all TURNT!, son!, on one difference between them: curtailing spending.

"I think that, in Washington during my brother's time, you know, he served his nickel there, plus three more, Republicans spent too many Benjamins," Mr. Bush said Thursday when asked to describe where there was a "big space" between himself and his brotherman. "I think he could have used the veto powizzo, put a jimmie on that shit. He didn’t have line-item veto power, but he could have brought budget discipline to Washington, D.C. Instead, he got all krunk.

...

He did qualify that his criticism of the government spending during his brother's tenure as president “seems kind of quizzaint right now given the fazzact that after he left, the budget and deficits and spending went up astronomizzically, knahmean?”

In the second link, there's a video of Joe Scarborough, the sad establishment clown, confessing that not a single Republican is passionate about Jeb Bush, and David Frum says Jeb just can't win.
