The Uncompassionate Conservative: Vicious Headlines for Jeb Bush

Jun 11, 2015

Jeb Bush’s campaign shakeup this week hasn’t changed his pattern of being unprepared for simple questions and his penchant for creating terrible headlines for his not-yet campaign. After reports surfaced this week that Bush had lauded the merits of publicly ridiculing unwed women — among other eyebrow-raising proposals — in a 1995 book, Bush refused today to repudiate or apologize for his crude views.

With days to go before announcing his official candidacy, voters Googling “Jeb Bush” are going to read some interesting headlines:
