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?

Jeb Bush, Jr. — son of the former governor of Florida and grandson of George H.W. Bush — on the future of the Republican Party…
"We've got to be a kind of pro-science and pro-technology party."
Well, the GOP already is a kind of pro-science party. Just not the regular kind. More of an interpretive or impressionistic kind.

* Ann Romney says she loves giving tithing 10 percent of the family income to the Mormon Church so much that she cries. Her husband responded, "So do I, but for a different reason." Now that is an actual joke. I think.
* Todd Akin has promised the people of Missouri that he will hang himself limply from Mitt Romney's neck like an albatross all the way till November!
* A Tea Party state legislator who was warned the people of Maryland of how homosexuals will hurt our children got drunk and crashed his boat into another boat full of kids. Is this his way of coming out?
