Glen Beck first tore into Jeb Bush’s argument for an alternative health care plan, calling it borderline “fascist” and saying the Republican establishment is no longer contending that the government shouldn’t be involved in health care, merely arguing now that they can do it better.
But it was Bush’s comment about the need for “self-restraint” in the Obamacare fight that really set Beck off. He said,
“If you guys would not have been shooting at Ted Cruz, you could have been showing the world how bad it was!”
He mused, “Maybe it’s time to stop listening to the Bushes.” Beck listed a whole array of things brought to life by the Bushes, from the PATRIOT Act to John Roberts to “never-ending wars” to No Child Left Behind, and asked why on earth any conservative would ever have voted for them in the first place.
