Jeb Bush may be destroying any hope of becoming the GOP nominee in 2016, but he’s well on his way to throwing one
hell of a gay pride parade.
First he hired David Kochel, an aggressive advocate of homosexual marriage and a former Romney hack, as one of his top campaign advisors.
And now Tim Miller, the openly gay executive director of America Rising PAC, has been hired has the Bush campaign’s communications director.
Bush has good company, though, when it comes to letting the fox into the hen house on marriage politics. Miller previously served as spokesman at the Republican National Committee and for the presidential campaigns of John Huntsman and John McCain.
Miller, 33, is not shy about promoting his gay lifestyle on social media, and “loves to mock conservatives” who defend marriage being between one man and one woman, according to a website that promotes homosexuality.

*Sesame Street references like “If Bert was gay, why didn’t he wax his eyebrows? A symposium on grooming an heteronormativity.”
Miller’s Facebook page has also documented his attendance at events such as ‘DC Protest Against CA Proposition 8;’ ‘SUGARTIT: A dirty polaroid style New Year’s Eve;’ ‘BYGays AllCity Happy Hour feat;’ and ‘Homo/Sonic: Natty Boom Birthday Explosion!’
Straight out of the Republican Party platform, right? Just like Bush’s support for amnesty and common core.
Is Jeb doing what ever it takes to be elected even though he is unelectable? Just last month Jeb Bush said he still thinks the issue should be in the hands of voters.
The Miami Herald reported Jeb saying:
“It ought be a local decision. I mean, a state decision,” the former governor said Sunday in a brief interview. “The state decided. The people of the state decided. But it’s been overturned by the courts, I guess.”
The paper also provides some background on Bush's mixed record on LGBT rights over the years:
As governor, he was against same-sex marriage but wasn’t publicly enthusiastic about the successful 2008 campaign to rewrite the Florida Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. Bush, who left office in 2007, said the change wasn’t needed, since state law already restricted marriage to heterosexual couples. Two years ago, he suggested in a PBS interview that gay parents could be held up as role models, even as he said “traditional marriage is what should be sanctioned” by the government.
In the 2012 interview, Bush told Charlie Rose that “if people love their children with all their heart and soul and that’s what they do and that’s how they organize their life, that should be held up as an example to others, because we need it.” In a speech to a Republican group last year, Bush warned against being a party seen as against too many things, including being “anti-gay.”
