Dick Polman comments on Jeb Bush’s decision to play the “Asian” card. Here’s a bit.
The GOP establishment’s designated big bucks receptacle has already misspoken, backtracked, and clarified so many times, I’ve lost count. But what he said on Monday at the Texas border was truly classic. While trying to mend fences with Hispanics, he said that he hadn’t meant to suggest that the slur term “anchor babies” applied to them. No, no. Here’s what he meant: “Frankly, it’s more related to Asian people coming into the country.”
Well, that clears things up. He hadn’t meant to smear Hispanics. He was trying to smear Asians.
And this guy is supposed to be the smart Bush.
