Turns out the only thing harder than immigrants finding a pathway to citizenship is a guy named Bush finding a pathway to the presidency.
And you people are not making it any easier.
Take a look at Jeb Bush's* new book, released just last night, which argues that "those [immigrants] who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship." Harsh!
(Also, "cherished fruits"? Sounds like Michelle Obama just got an ally for her healthy eating campaign. Yay bipartisanship!)
But just a few hours later on Morning Joe, Bush said the following sentence-like jumble of words: "If you can craft that in law where you can have a path to citizenship where there isn't an incentive for people to come illegally."
His reason for waffling? "We wrote this book last year, not this year." Duh. If only Americans would stop flip-flopping on what they want Jeb Bush to believe, he wouldn't have to change his mind so quickly.
*Fun fact: his real name is John Ellis Bush. If he's going to avoid one of his names, though, shouldn't it be the last one?
