HONOLULU, June 27, 2013 – This fall, former Florida Governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush will be presenting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with the Liberty Medal on behalf of the National Constitution Center.
In an official press release, Bush noted “Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy … These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
While a more appropriate and deserving choice for the medal might have been former Texas congressman Ron Paul, the selection of Hillary Clinton as the National Constitution Center’s epitome of service should force Republican leaders and Bush Dynasty loyalists to re-evaluate their partisan affiliation.
After all, neoconservatives know that George H.W. Bush and son George W. Bush were flawless presidents who never made any mistakes, who always did the right thing, whose service was so stellar and worthy of emulation that should Jeb Bush run in 2016, Republicans have a responsibility to support him.
Neoconservatives know full well that anything a Bush does is the right thing for America. Therefore, under that logic, Jeb Bush’s honoring of Hillary Clinton forces one to grapple with the inevitable conclusion that true Republicans are most “conservative” and patriotic when they honor Clinton Democrats. What should one do then?
Turn in your Republican card and become a Democrat today!
While this light dosage of editorial hyperbole is probably detestable to most Republican readers (and rightly so) the simple fact of the matter is that in today’s 21st century America, being a Republican or Democrat now carries the same significance as carrying a warehouse shopping club card.
The only people that worry about partisanship are well compensated campaign managers, political consultants and the voting blocs they deceive.
The real world isn’t divided between Republicans and Democrats but between those who have power and those who don’t. It’s time to put away the absurd political mythology of Republican Olympians and Democratic Titans and start recognizing the real world needs real, nonpartisan solutions.
Elected officials of both parties are out of touch with America. The battle between the two parties is as never-ending and relevant to America as who will win the next NFL SuperBowl. We need less partisans and more patriots in D.C. if the United States is to ever regain its rightful place as leader of the free world.
