What Mark Levin Just Said About the Bush Political Dynasty Will Make The GOP Establishment Livid

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Former Reagan administration official, constitutional attorney, best-selling author, and top radio talk show host, Mark Levin, gave his vast audience a history lesson on Thursday, angry at establishment-backed probable Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush’s latest doubling-down on amnesty.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]As we reported on Thursday, Jeb Bush adopted rhetoric on amnesty which would make Barack Obama and the extreme anti-American left proud, pushing for illegal aliens being able to “come out of the shadows and receive earned legal status.”

“We have a family in this country, that’s the Bush dynasty, that’s hell-bent on more and more open immigration. This is almost their single focus. This is their obsession,” a justifiably upset Levin began on Thursday.

Levin pointed out the history of the Bush political dynasty — that while they may from time to time do conservative things in office, they have never been true conservatives. It was George H.W. Bush, who ran against Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination in 1980, who referred to Reagonomics as “voodoo economics,” as well as supporting Gerald Ford over Reagan in 1976.

Levin contends that the label “corporatist” much more accurately describes the Bush’s than “conservative.” In fact, Levin argues that the Bush family has never been actual conservatives:

“And the reason is, ladies and gentlemen – and I’m going back to the Reagan versus the George H.W. Bush time – the Bush family, they’re corporatists. This is who they are, this is what they are. They’re not conservatives, they’ve never been conservatives. That doesn’t mean they don’t do conservative things from time to time when they’re in office, but they’re corporatists, they’ve always been corporatists. They’re part of the establishment, they’re part of the ruling class.”

Levin reflected that if the Bush’s had succeeded in 1980, we would have never experienced the Reagan Revolution, or the years of American prosperity that followed the policies that were born in the Reagan years, and that the Soviet Union would still be in existence if the Bush’s had defeated Reagan:

“If they had succeeded in 1980 Ronald Reagan wouldn’t have been president. And if Ronald Reagan wouldn’t have been president, imagine! The Soviet Union wouldn’t have collapsed and I could go on and on and on. But this is who they are: they’re corporatists.”

Of course, we will hear the same rhetoric from the leftstream media and the RINO establishment wing of the GOP, the Ford, Dole, McCain, Romney wing, that a true, principled, unwavering conservative like Ted Cruz is unelectable, and that only a boring moderate squishy pragmatist like Jeb Bush can save us.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]

You can almost just hear Bush cronies like Karl Rove beginning the rhetoric. It’s like 1980 all over again. And Rove-types are hopeful that Levin’s history lesson is kept under wraps.

We experienced what a Bush “conservative” presidency was like, as George W. Bush from 2000-2008 increased the national debt more than any preceding president in U.S. history.

Hardly conservative.
