Republicans and Democrats have been accused of being two arms of the same corrupt political body. Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are demonized by each other, by their opponents, and even by factions within their own parties, but they have more in common than you might think.
Here are 15 ways Jeb Bush is just like Hillary Clinton:
1.) They project entitlement:
Bush and Clinton represent a political class that is seen as living lives apart from those they represent, people who are seen as out for themselves rather than for ordinary people. – Dan Balz, Washington Post
Immigrants keep America young and dynamic.- Hillary Clinton, On The Issues
Immigrants are an engine of economic vitality. - Jeb Bush, On the Issues
6.) They both agree the Confederate flag is racist. Jeb Bush removed the flag from Florida’s capitol in 2001.
7.) Both support the death penalty.
10.) Both support the controversial Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP).
12.) Each has strong corporate ties:
Bush enlisted the firm’s lobbyists to help him write speeches, provided private glimpses of public policy to lobbyists and reversed his positions to support policies that helped their clients. -International Business Times
Hillary Clinton was one of the most aggressive global cheerleaders for American companies, pushing governments to sign deals and change policies to the advantage of corporate giants such as General Electric Co., Exxon Mobil Co., Microsoft Corp. and Boeing Co. -Wall Street Journal
15.) Both have high unfavorable ratings. Jeb’s is 44 percent. Hillary’s is 49 percent — beat out only by Obama and Donald Trump.
