The progressive opposition research machine/PAC thing, American Bridge, is wetting their britches over what might be the absolutely lamest "gotcha" video I've ever seen. American Bridge describes itself as a, "progressive research and communications organization committed to holding Republicans accountable for their words and actions and helping you ascertain when Republican candidates are pretending to be something they’re not." They send trackers to all kinds of meetings in the hopes of catching a Republican candidate or politician spilling their deepest, darkest, Koch-funded secrets. The super secret Jeb video was described as follows:
Only a day into his official campaign for president, Jeb Bush fielded a town hall question about Social Security. And it didn’t take him long to slam the critical seniors’ program. Then he started talking about his brother — the brother who, as president, notoriously went all-in trying to make partial Social Security privatization happen. And not to leave any question lingering, Jeb made sure to note that “the next president” would have to try what his brother did again. This, from the guy who’s running to be the next president. We caught it on video. You need to watch it for yourself and share this with your friends.
