"Neil Bush (Jeb and George's younger brother) joins the Cruz team"

Just as I suspected, the establishment is about to openly join forces with Cruz. (it was stealth like before)

That's comforting to know. Both Jeb and George H. Walker worked at Lehman Brothers in 2008 even during its collapse. George H. Walker was the Bush who assured his team they'd still get the bonuses.

Neil was of course better known as "Silverado [i.e., Savings and Loan] Neil Bush".

Just remember, Wall st. has no influence on US policy and despite all the contributions and back scratching, our government isn't owned by them:

Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush only made $14 Million working for Lehman. If he had become President, the people he worked with there would have had not more influence on the government than the guy who works at a diner in Minnesota.




I'm sure Hillary Clinton doesn't owe anyone any favors either. It's an "artful smear".

Neil has been in a daze since his bosom buddy, Boris Berezovsky, kicked the bucket. Glad that at last he's found a new purpose to his life.

I am not happy having anyone named Bush associated with Cruz. I still support him over Trump. But it takes money to win a national campaign and if Neil Bush can bring in big donors, then so be it. It makes me nervous to think that this would put Cruz in a quid pro quo situation, but I have yet to see Cruz sell out to any special interest groups up to this point.

Time will tell, but this is a disappointing turn of events for those of us who see Cruz as anti-establishment.
