Height of Hypocrisy: Jeb Bush Declares He Is His Own Man While Signing Up With Dick Cheney's Team (The Invasion Of Iran Is Already Decided If He Wins)

Jeb Bush signs up with most of the Bush Administrations team like Romney did before him. Clearly, Jeb Bush is the anointed one.

Jeb Bush: ‘I am my own man’: Jeb Bush took the first big step to the White House today by distancing himself from his father’s and brother’s presidencies. Kasie Hunt, Steve Kornacki, and George Pataki join the Hardball discussion.

Article extract:

Jeb Bush may be his “own man,” as he declared Wednesday in his inaugural foreign-policy speech as a putative presidential candidate. But to hear GOP insiders describe it, the former Florida governor is pulling together his foreign-policy team with a distinctive Bush-family recipe in mind, adding a strong dash of 43 (his hawkish brother) to a sprinkling of 41 (his moderate dad), mainly to make himself more palatable to mistrustful and still-mostly-hawkish GOP primary base voters.

Bush’s advisory team is being pulled together by two mainstream Republican foreign-policy experts who served both his father and his brother, Richard Haass and Robert Zoellick. They have enlisted not only old GOP lions like James Baker—who first served under Gerald Ford, then Ronald Reagan and distinguished himself as George H.W. Bush’s secretary of State—but also neoconservatives such as Iraq war advocate Paul Wolfowitz and John Hannah, Dick Cheney’s former national security advisor.

People who they disagree with get a media cover-up...

The media consistently treats Ron Paul like 'he is the thirteenth floor in a hotel', yet he is the one that planted the grassroots that the establishment republicans are benefiting from now. Why is that? [Note: The media anchors all following a similar script has been dubbed 'echo chamber' and is written about here and here. ]
