Jeb Bush’s Support for Puerto Rico statehood, Drug Use and Dealing Hurts Him in Iowa

Jeb Bush - Before and After

Jeb Bush – Before and After

Jeb Bush’s committed support to Puerto Rico on the issue of statehood and drug involvement is driving his poll numbers down.

The poll asked whether respondents would support Jeb Bush for the Republican nomination due to his support for Puerto Rican statehood.

Respondents had a generally negative reaction to that position: 46% were less likely to support him, while 27% were more likely. A plurality – 28% – was somewhat less likely and 23% said it made no difference, the most common two responses, showing that Bush’s position is certainly not popular, and probably toxic.

Much more off-putting is Bush’s call to extend the bankruptcy laws that apply to Puerto Rico, which would allow for the restructuring of debt owed to the United States. 64% of respondents were less likely to support him and a plurality – 34% – was much less likely. This position by Bush will jeopardize Americans taxpayers’ 401ks, mutual funds and IRAs, as these are the forms in which most of Puerto Rico’s $72 billion in debt to the U.S. is held,

As reported below, Jeb is already polling worse than expected for Iowa. Since this is an issue he can expect his rivals to attack him on, it is bad news that it doesn’t play well to voters.

It is bad news in a larger sense too: Bush has staked much of his success in the Republican primary on his ability to favor Hispanic voters by advocating a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

And then there is Jeb’s drug history

Don’t just take our word for it.

Bill Maher has slammed Jeb Bush harder than them all for his degree of hypocrisy which showed a complete lack of ethics.

“When Jeb Bush was at prep school, he was apparently not just a pothead but a dealer,” Bill Maher said. “But he dismisses that by saying ‘Back then I was a cynical little turd at a cynical school.’ OK. But then when you became a governor of a state you insisted on mandatory sentences for drug crimes and a policy of jail only, no treatment for drug users. Except when it was your daughter. When you made an exception. Wow that sounds like something a cynical turd would do.”

It is well known that Governor Jeb Bush’s daughter is an addict, but at the same time his daughter was getting treatment for her drug abuse, Jeb Bush was opposing a proposition that would allow the masses that same treatment—the ordinary people.

According to a recent Jeb Bush profile in the Boston Globe a friend of Jeb’s said: “The first time I really got stoned was in Jeb’s room,” Tibbetts said. “He had a portable stereo with removable speakers. He put on Steppenwolf for me.” As the rock group’s signature song, “Magic Carpet Ride,’’ blared from the speakers, Tibbetts said he smoked hash with Bush.

Tibbets said he once bought hashish from Bush but stressed, in a follow-up e-mail, “Please bear in mind that I was seeking the hash. It wasn’t as if he was a dealer, though he did suggest I take up cigarettes so that I could hold my hits better, after that first joint.” Yeah, Jeb knew a lot about dope.

Then there is the case of murdered CIA drug smuggler Barry Seal in 1986 to keep a lid on Iran-Contra and government’s and Bush family participation. You can read all about that here.
