Could Jeb Bush Win Over the Christian Right in ’16? | RealClearPolitics

In light of Chris Christie’s uncertain political future, some influential Republican figures have shifted their gaze toward Jeb Bush, pegging him as the GOP prospect they believe is best equipped to win the presidency in 2016. 

But contrary to popular perception, it’s not just members of the party’s establishment wing who are urging the former Florida governor to considering running. More quietly, prominent social conservatives are also nudging him toward a White House bid.

Sure.  Because the only things many socons are actually conservative about are sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, and abortion.  As long as you twang their twangers on these issues, the rest of your platform and history can be right out of Das Kapital, and they’re fine with it.  They like Jeberiah because he’s Mike Huckabee in a better suit and pedigree.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
