Perpetual irrelevance engine Gov. Jul Bush has found another way to attack the politician he’s not running against and complain about poor women at the same time.
“This is a place where I think President Obama missed a real golden opportunity, because he has a stable family, loving children – great, balanced children from what I can tell – a strong relationship with his wife, and he could have shown that as a model for others to emulate. And I don’t think he’s done it as much.”
On first read I found this as comprehensible as his Look America I’m Armed! tweet. I mean, I don’t expect Gov. Jib to look at the froth-spouting howlers he’s trying to court and think maybe there’s a reason the Obamas don’t haul Sasha and Malia in front of the cameras as much as Jab would like. Neither do I expect it to cross his wobbly little particleboard desk that perhaps Sasha and Malia have expressed a desire to stay out of the limelight and their parents are honoring that wish. That would require introspection and empathy.
(Personally, I have never once thought “Gee, I’d like to see more of the First Daughters,” either for my own personal edification or as part of some sort of grand example setting effort on the First Family’s part. I attribute this to the fact that I’m not a creep, a clown or a conservative. Create the Venn diagram at your own leisure.)
But I read on and realized that putting on the po-face about Obama’s American Dad routine was Jam’s way of releasing the safety prior to firing a few rounds of “It’s Obama’s fault [certain] poor women continue to be single poor welfaristas when they could stop being poor if they got married.” Per CNN Transcription Services, Inc.:
Bush, as he often does, said that marriage is one of the keys to keeping people out of poverty, pointing to federal welfare programs that he argues create incentives for single moms to stay single, because otherwise they may lose some benefits.
Still gibberish, but I’ve heard it enough to translate it to English: In the dusty bowl of mouse turds Jug uses for a mind, if the Obamas had done enough of the strong black family thing in public, poor black women on welfare would rush into the streets and beg the one man who had avoided being the victim of a form of institutionalized racism that put him behind bars or underground to cure them of their wicked welfare-dependent ways with the power of holy matrimony. Thanks a lot Obama!
And yes, the poverty-banishment marriage ritual can only be completed with a man. As Jot non-judgmentally observed, some family arrangements are less equal than others.
Bush said that a family with a husband and wife provides the best environment to allow children to succeed.

“There may be other forms that are equally as important and good. I’m not passing judgment,” he said. “To not try to strengthen family life, we do it at our peril.”
Plans for strengthening family life are available upon receipt of requests post marked on or before April 15, 1921. And anyway the plan relied on President Obama and his family being good role models to their kind, so there’s no point asking Jaw to do anything about it. Back off. He’s got a gun and he’s not afraid to tweet it.
As an aside, and perhaps my sensibilities have been blunted by close to 30 years of GOP nastiness, but Jog’s wee, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie shtick skeeves me out as much as the Trumpenfuhrer, and almost as much as Ted “Oleomargarine” Cruz.
