He’s now a Latino:
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush marked himself down as Hispanic on a voter registration form that asked for his “race/ethnicity” in 2009, according to a document posted online by The New York Times.
The paper said it obtained the document from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department.
Bush was born to two white parents. But he speaks Spanish, married a woman born in Mexico and once lived in Venezuela.
You can just hear the Left now, can’t you? Jeb making a completely honest mistake like this, you’d think he created a false identity as a Native American for 25 years.
Here’s Andrea Mitchell reaffirming that Jeb is white and not Hispanic:
Yes, Andrea, but he can say that in Spanish. Can Elizabeth Warren tell us she lied about being Indian in Cherokee? Thought not.
I’m not a Jeb fan, but the only way I can see this hurts him is that the establishment already has its token Hispanic. Two Hispanic RINOs in the same election cycle could look like they’re pandering for Latino votes.
Now if he would only get rid of the mom glasses.
And say something remotely unliberal sounding.

UPDATE – I’ve received a heads up from one of our FB friends that some may misinterpret my comments as offensive to Hispanics. I hope that is not the case. Anyone who reads RRG knows that one of my pet peeves with the GOP is their pandering for minority votes. While this is a fine racist Democrat tradition, it is not conservative. Pandering to racial groups doesn’t win elections; broad-based messaging of conservative ideas does. My criticism is alway strictly reserved for the establishment political class, never for what the Left deems to be “designated victims”. I don’t think of minorities as victims, and I regard all Americans as equal under God. I assume that conservatives of every race, creed and color are intelligent enough to understand this.
My sincerest apologies to anyone who may have misunderstood the content of this post.
