Act of Love: Jeb Pushes GOP to Cave to Executive Amnesty, Approve Loretta Lynch

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has joined Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid in calling for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to abandon his pre-election promise to fight President Obama’s executive amnesty by holding a vote to confirm U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch as Attorney General.

“I think that presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said in New Hampshire at an event with about 95 voters and “a horde of media,” according to Time Magazine’s Zeke Miller.

“The longer it takes to confirm her, the longer Eric Holder stays as Attorney General,” Bush said, echoing a talking point that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has used to justify his planned vote for Lynch–even though a vote for her is a vote for Obama’s executive amnesty.

Bush’s move comes as he’s lost his frontrunner status–despite all the money he’s raking in–in the 2016 GOP primary to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who opposes Lynch’s nomination and now leads Bush in polls in all three early primary states.

Reid, appearing on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC program on Thursday, also—like Bush—called for Senate Republicans to confirm Lynch immediately.

  1. We are a one party system, only a few have figured this out yet. Our only hope is that Bush is not the nominee and then began to clean house in the house and the senate. If Bush is the nominee I will not vote for him.
