Check out the interview here, it’s at the 50 minute mark. And watch Jeb squirm in a way he doesn’t anywhere else in the interview.
Andrew Sullivan thinks Bush sounded like Obama did two months ago. David Link observes:
Jeb’s detours, platitudes, bromides and banality not only don’t answer the question, they don’t even seem to convince Jeb himself.
That, I think (and hope) is the tragedy of politicians of good faith. They know they are giving the wrong answer and hate themselves for it. Can Jeb Bush really believe that when he says same-sex marriage is a “diversion,” he is not insulting every lesbian and gay man, to whom marriage is not some triviality or stratagem, but a central fact of their daily life?
