Jeb Bush: GOP and Romney Too Extreme

Strange that Jeb Bush blames Obama. It's the extremism of the GOP that caused republicans to work to oust Obama instead of doing what they were elected to do. It's the fanatics, the tea partiers and the birthers (racists) who've taken over the GOP. I don't care what anyone says, democrats are not anywhere near as extreme as the GOP.

“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,” Bush said Monday in a meeting with journalists at Bloomberg headquarters in New York.

Bush lamented the party’s turn sharply right on some issues, such as immigration, and suggested that it would be a passing phase. He urged Romney to moderate his tough stance on immigration and to find ways to reach out to Hispanic Americans.

“I do feel a little out of step with my party on this,” said Bush, who also blamed Democrats and President Obama for the divisive atmosphere in Washington. Read more at marketwatch.
