I'm not saying I'm a Jeb Bush supporter, but this comment in Sunday's Union Leader editorial caught my attention. I also can't say I fully agree with the entire editorial nor do I think his continuing comment ("... people need to work longer hours" ) should be criticized as being elitist or out of touch. He was clearly referring to increased productivity in general, not individuals. Disappointing and making Jeb's point were the instant political posturing of the left and the subsequent right leaning editorial with the hyperbole "Tell the truth get crucified." Good examples of why we can't seem to solve any problems at any level of government.
I agree wholeheartedly with Jeb Bush on this issue, and while it may not play with some supporters, he was indeed telling the truth. There exists today an incredible amount of intolerance for opposing ideas just about everywhere on the political spectrum.
Sometimes your "side" will win and sometimes it will lose. "It can't always be, 'I win-you lose' every time. We've got to start solving problems."
