Glenn Beck rips Jeb Bush: ‘Enough with the royal families’

- The Washington Times - Monday, October 21, 2013

Glenn Beck blasted Jeb Bush on his radio show Monday after Mr. Bush criticized Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for lacking "self-restraint" against Obamacare.

The former Florida governor told ABC News that Republicans need to show how the "flawed" health care law won't work.

Mr. Beck declared that if the GOP hadn't been "shooting at Ted Cruz," they could have been showing the world "how bad" Obamacare is, the Blaze reported.

"If you wanted to show how bad it is, why wouldn't you do it?" Mr. Beck asked. "Because you want the framework. You want the control. You've just announced that ... where you said, 'We can do it better. We just have to reform it.' You want control."

Mr. Beck also urged his listeners to "stop listening to the Bushes."

"Enough with the royal families," he said. "Why do you have royal families? You have royal families because everybody knows they can trust them ... because I know your dad, I know what you are going to do and you are not going off the beaten path because everybody in the family is in on this ... We're just going to have you as a lord and lady. Why don't we just start calling them Lord Jeb? And Lady Bush? The Duchess of Houston! Why don't we call them that? The Kennedys and the Bushes. Enough with them."

"And the Clintons," Mr. Beck's co-host Stu Burguiere added, according to the Blaze.
