Team Bush Obfuscate Jeb’s Connections To Wall Street….

The Bush team is ultimately concerned that the electorate will connect the dots. The GOP establishment candidate is – The Chamber of Commerce candidate – is the Tom Donohue candidate – is the Wall Street Candidate.   (And therein lies the heart of the Mexico affiliation between Jeb Bush and Billionaire Carlos Slim)

Bottom Line: Jeb is Wall Street, Trump is Main Street.

Charlie Gasparino – Jeb Bush apparently doesn’t want people to know that he worked at Lehman Brothers, the now-defunct investment bank whose collapse led to the broader financial meltdown in 2008.

That’s the only conclusion I can come to after receiving a series of occasionally bizarre emails from his press people to what I thought was a fairly simple question about Bush’s work before he became a Republican presidential candidate.

For about seven years, Bush earned more than $14 million as an adviser to Lehman and, after its 2008 bankruptcy, Barclays, which took over Lehman. As such, he helped pitch business to clients or as he recently put it “I advised their clients on a wide range of global economic issues with a mind towards navigating government policies.”

Dig a little deeper and you will find that Bush may be downplaying his role at the firm, particularly when it mattered the most: Those turbulent months in 2008 just before Lehman filed for the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history.

      Bush’s piece of this firm-wide effort was termed “Project Verde” (Spanish for Green), and it involved convincing the world’s richest man, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, to make a potentially life-saving investment into Lehman.

      How do I know this? Not from the Bush people or even from all those tax returns he released last week, but from countless anonymous sources on Wall Street and once source who isn’t: Anton Valukas, a Reagan appointed former U.S. Attorney who went on to become the examiner for the Lehman bankruptcy.

    The goal now is to make Yeb spend most of that $101M in the early states. Keep an eye on what and where he’s spending money.

    I know I already said this last night/early this morning, but I truly cannot stomach Jeb’s smile. It makes me sick. He cocks his head in an oh-so-innocent way that he looks like a dopey child. Smiling when ValJar is that close? I’d be throwing up. This picture is proof enough for me.

    They are ALL Wall Street and if you find one that isn’t, I guarantee that the minute he or she shows enough movement to suggest he has any chance, he’ll BECOME Wall Street.

    If any one of them seems independent is because “Freedon’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.”

    The sight of the three of them sitting together, Jeb, Rupert, and ValJar, all at the same table, enjoying a good laugh together is disconcerting. A down to the bone rock solid Republican would regard ValJar with the same disdain as he would a Benedict Arnold, Vidkun Quisling, or Lord Haw Haw, or perhaps even a Frankensteins Monster or Dracula. The laugh they’re enjoying together is likely due because the joke’s on us..

    …not to mention organized crime, drug smuggling profits, and bank scandals. What a coincidence that the Bushes were friends with a Reagan would-be assassin. Nothing to that. Just a 1 to 100 billion odds coincidence, Mikey Ultra notwithstanding.
