    Jeb Bush:
    " Life, is increasingly more difficult for those who aren't born with built-in advantages.

    It is not a validation of our conservative principles if we can only point to the increasingly rare individual who overcomes adversity and succeeds in America," Bush said. "Here’s reality: if you’re fortunate enough to count yourself among the privileged, much of the rest of the nation is drowning.

    "In our country today, if you’re born poor, if your parents didn’t go to college, if you don’t know your father, if English isn’t spoken at home, then the odds are stacked against you. You are more likely to stay poor today than at any other time since World War II.. "

    Somehow, some way, the Republicans must address wealth distribution differently than the past.

    As long as Republicans see the wacko's at CPAC as the ones they have to please, the GOP will become more and more marginal.

    Reagan used to say that he didn't leave the Democratic party, it left him. I feel the same way about the GOP and it's choice of gun-loving, immigrant-hating, climate warming-denying, bigoted people.
