Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky parodies the presidential dynasty advantage of Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush with the release Thursday of a satiric telephone call
between the two possible White House candidates.
RAND PAC, the libertarian-leaning politician's political organization, imagines the fake phone powwow between the two about whose turn it is to occupy the White House, with an actor playing Bush telling the phony Clinton, ""I just wanted to call and give you a heads-up in hopes we could work something out."
The actress voicing Clinton then responds: "We both agree on so many issues: bigger government, Common Core, and amnesty for illegal immigrants."
It was the second day in a row that Paul, who is also considering a run for the GOP presidential nomination, took a shot at his presumed rivals.
The Kentucky lawmaker took to Twitter Wednesday to blast Bush, Clinton, and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, who's also considering a third run, using the hashtag #ThingsToRunFrom.
Here is the full transcript of the satiric Clinton-Bush call, posted by Politico:
BUSH: Hey, Hill. It’s Jeb.
CLINTON: Hey, Jeb. To what do I owe this pleasure?
BUSH: Well, it’s true — I’m thinking about running for president.
CLINTON: Well, Jeb, so am I.
BUSH: I just wanted to call and give you a heads-up in hopes we could work something out.
CLINTON: What do you mean, Jeb? It’s clearly my turn: Bush, Clinton, Bush. Now, Clinton.
BUSH: Well, Hillary, there hasn’t been a Republican White House without a Bush since 1977, and we’re ready to be back.
CLINTON: Let me shoot straight with you, Jeb, OK? Bill and I are dead broke and need a place to stay. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is calling me home — I’ve still got the back door key. Being president offers a lot more job security than writing another memoir.
BUSH: Well, the Bushes have weathered attacks before. And read my lips, Hillary: We’re not backing down this time.
CLINTON: Well, you’re right — maybe we can work something out. We both agree on so many issues: bigger government, Common Core, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
BUSH: Well, we’ve both got problems. You’ve got problems with the grass-roots, and I’ve got all those damn conservatives. What say we make a deal?
[Call beeps in.]
BUSH: Sorry, Hillary, but I have to go. Mitt keeps calling.
CLINTON: Oh, for crying out loud.
