If you were to elect Jeb Bush as President in 2016 he wants you to know something… one of his priorities will be to “weave a web of civility” with people who don’t agree with him.
In a conference call for the Alabama Republican Party earlier this week, Jeb Bush answered a question about the things he would try to get done first upon his election as President. He listed a number of important issues that he planned to deal with as soon as he could, but then he went on to mention something a bit more nebulous. Weaving a web of civility with Democrats…
“Those three or four things would be the first things that I think are important,” he said. “The final thing I would say, Terry, which may sound a little unorthodox is to actually talk to Democrats. It’s extraordinary this president has no relationship with Republicans. There’s no trust because our president doesn’t believe that is a priority. You know, to fix big things, you have to do it in a bipartisan way. There’s never been a time in American history where you jam it down the throats of the other party and expect a good result. Obamacare and Dodd-Frank – these are examples of horrible policy and it was done without any support of any single Republican. So if we weave a web of civility where you don’t violate your principles by actually talking to people who don’t agree with you – it’s an essential part of restoring democracy in this country so we start fixing things.”
