That bad man is being mean to my brother George

By Richard K. Barry

Who's a big baby? Yes you are.

I'm the first to admit that Jeb Bush presents a hell of a lot better than his dimwit brother. It must have been hard to watch W. be president knowing if there was any intelligence in the family, George didn't get it. But give me a major break that Jeb is bellyaching because President Obama is blaming everybody else for everything, including poor brother George.

Here's the quote from Jeb:

His entire strategy is to blame others -- starting with my brother, of course. Basically, he blames every possible thing rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and to find common ground.

But here's the thing, Jeb. It's even worse than you thought. Nobody, not even the Republicans, want to talk about your sorry brother. Nobody wants to blame him. They just want to ignore him. He's not worth anyone's trouble anymore. Unless you're talking about casually mentioning every now and then what an economic mess George left for the country and Obama. In which case, well, yeah, what's your point?

But my favourite part is Jeb bitching that Obama hasn't the humility to reach out and find common ground. I actually think you're smart enough to know your GOP brothers and sisters decided from the start they were not going to work with the Obama Administration.

Or maybe you think like Republican Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock that partisanship, that "working with" Republicans, means doing what they want you to do. That's probably what you mean. That's always what Republicans mean when they say Democrats won't work with them and lack humility.
