Jeb Bush says father, Reagan not conservative enough for today's Republican Party
Washington, June 12 (ANI): Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has said that both Ronald Reagan and his father, George H.W. Bush, would have a hard time getting nominated by the more conservative voters in today's Republican Party.
"Ronald Reagan would have, based on his record of finding accommodation, finding some degree of common ground, as would my dad, they would have a hard time if you define the Republican party, and I don't, as having an orthodoxy that doesn't allow for disagreement, doesn't allow for finding some common ground," ABC News quoted Bush as saying.
Bush said he sees the ultra-conservative and partisan standards of today's GOP as "disturbing," but called "this dysfunction temporary."
Bush said that during his "dad's time and Ronald Reagan's time," they "got a lot of stuff done with a lot of bipartisan support," adding that Reagan "would be criticized for doing the things that he did."
Bush blamed President Barack Obama for much of the clashing.
"His first year could have been a year of enormous accomplishment had he focused on things where there was more common ground," Bush said.
Bush argued that he believed Obama made the "purely political calculation" to run a more partisan administration.
Bush also said "under no circumstances" would he be Romney's running mate, but did leave the door open to a future White House run himself. (ANI)
