Jeb Bush Thinks He’s Actually Hispanic? Apparently so…

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, an almost definite 2016 presidential candidate (but still unannounced), is considered the GOP establishment leader in the squishy middle of the Republican Party, in the mold of “moderate” presidential hopefuls like Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney.

Among most in the pro-Constitution, pro-freedom grassroots Tea Party movement, Bush is considered more of a RINO (Republican-in-name-only) for his support for amnesty and Common Core.

While Bush portrays himself as having strong ties to the Hispanic community because his wife has Mexican heritage, this just discovered claim by Bush, the son of former president George H. W. Bush and brother of former president George W. Bush, is perplexing to say the least.

As the New York Times reported, Jeb Bush identified as a “Hispanic” on a 2009 voter-registration form, citing the application it obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department.

A Bush spokesman could not offer an explanation to the newspaper, since Bush is obviously not Hispanic, however Bush did tweet about it late Monday morning, attempting to brush it off as a funny and innocent mistake, using a Twitter hashtag “HonoraryLatino.”
