On Tuesday’s “Michael Medved Show,” Former Florida Governor and prospective presidential candidate Jeb Bush (R) said that President Obama’s “continuance of the protections of the homeland using the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced” has been the best part of his presidency.
Bush was asked by host Michael Medved to name the best part of President Obama’s presidency, to which Jeb responded, “I would say the best part of the Obama administration would be his continuance of the protections of the homeland using the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced. Advancing this — even though he never defends it, even though he never openly admits it, there has been a continuation of a very important service, which is the first obligation, I think of our national government is to keep us safe. And the technologies that now can be applied to make that so, while protecting civil liberties are there. And he’s not abandoned them, even though there was some indication that he might. That’s the best I can do.”
