NEW YORK – As Senate Republicans delay a vote on Loretta Lynch attorney general nomination, GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is urging confirmation, arguing President Obama deserves the right to appoint his own team without partisan opposition.My first thought was "see no difference between Repubs and Dems". That's probably the case, but not for the usual reasons. This isn't a case for the business as usual betrayal of voters by republicans in the name of bipartisanship. This is more self serving than that.
The Bushs and the Clintons have nearly identical corporate sponsors. That fact is fairly well known. They also have nearly identical governing philosophies. Again no surprise there. Hillary is likely going to be the Democratic nominee for president. She stepped aside for Obummer and they owe her a run. No doubt she's got enough dirt on everyone to get that run anyway.
Jeb Bush doesn't have the chops to beat Hillary in an election. He never has and he never will. Bush must have some back channel info that Lynch is going to investigate Hillary. He probably thinks that her investigation will serve to derail her presidential run. That is what Jeb is hoping will eliminate Hillary from the presidential race and improve his chances at ascending the cherry blossom throne. He needs to dry up her campaign contributions to increase the available pool for himself. To do that he needs sponsors to see her as a poor bet early on in the process.
