Jeb Bush more of a Palin fan than mom is

In an exclusive interview Monday, Bush told Newsmax.TV: “If it’s between my mom and Gov. Palin, I’ve got to go with my mom, just in general, because she’s my mother.”

He added with a smile, “So you’re not going to get me in trouble with disagreeing with my beloved mother of 85 years, who occasionally from time to time says things that give us all great joy, and sometimes some consternation.”…

While siding with his redoubtable mother, Jeb Bush went out of his way to compliment Palin’s political acumen, saying: ”She has an incredible skill to connect with people. She has fantastic political instincts, I think.”
