I was sorry to see Jeb Bush drop out of the race for the Republican nomination for president of the United States, but he probably did the best thing.
If you don’t know, The Gantt Report is politically independent and doesn’t endorse political candidates unless they are close friends that I know very well. I considered Jeb Bush a friend, but he was not a very close friend.
Why am I friendly with Jeb?
Well, he won’t say it on Fox News or probably anywhere else, but Jeb Bush endorsed my first book, “I Talked About The Beast.” That book was also endorsed by leaders of The Nation of Islam.
More important than that, when I suffered a catastrophic injury in 2002 that caused brain damage, Jeb Bush was the only politician that called the hospital to wish me a speedy recovery.
Even though my company, All World Consultants, helped put many Black elected officials in office and even though I paved the way for many Black lobbyists, I didn’t get a single call from any Black person in public office or from any Black lobbyist I helped to get lobbying contracts. I only heard from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
My company, All World Consultants, also made a lot of money from state government contracts while Jeb Bush was governor. More Blacks, Hispanics, women and other minority businesspersons made more money during the Jeb Bush term as governor than the terms of any other Florida governor in history!
Jeb Bush was bushwhacked and bamboozled by imperialist businessmen that contributed millions to his presidential effort. Jeb Bush fell for the okey-doke!
Conservative donors gave money to Jeb. But they also told him how to spend it.
Jeb Bush went on the hire some political idiots that didn’t have a clue how to generate votes and support for what I thought was clearly the best Republican choice for the GOP presidential nomination.
In nationwide, statewide and local elections, the only question candidates need to ask about consultants and advisors is, “Who can deliver?” The Bush performance in Republican presidential primaries showed that his highly-paid political consultants couldn’t draw flies to an outhouse full of feces!
Money can’t buy you love, and money can’t get Republicans elected. Bush should have learned that from the failed Mitt Romney campaign against Barack Obama.
When Bush decided to shy away from minorities that could support him and help him, he shied away from himself, from his wife – a Hispanic – and his mixed-race minority children.
He focused on pleasing new-age conservative, imperialistic and rich closet Klansmen who only contribute to candidates that hire ultra-conservative political consultants. If Bush had garnered the support of conservative Whites along with Hispanic and Black Republican primary voters, Donald Trump would have been dumped!
Also, when not on Fox News, Bush has regularly said he was not a political carbon copy of his father or his brother. He said he was his own man and would preside in his own way.
But when the going got tough, the chicken went home to roost. He paraded his brother and other family members around in South Carolina. That decision got him three percent of Republican votes cast and ultimately ended his campaign!
Look at yourself
You are not like your brothers and sisters. You have your parent’s DNA, but you are not like Mommy and Poppy. If Bush had just said, “I love my family members, but I am not exactly like they are,” he would have fared much better!
I’m sorry, but Jeb Bush had to learn the hard way. It’s good to acknowledge and accept your past and your family. But it’s bad to let your family bring you down and bring America down!
If Bush would have asked me to help him, I would have. But he didn’t, and I didn’t.
My “friend” got clowned in his own circus by Bozo Trump and Clarabelle Rubio. If a fool gets to go to the White House, blame Bush for not doing as well as he could have to win his party’s nomination!
