The end of the Bush legacy

I was just reading JMM's musings whether Trump finally moved us past 9/11, but winning the SC primary after openly sneering at what had been GOP orthodoxy about the terrorist attack since that occurred, when I read that Jeb Bush had dropped out of the race. That GOP orthodoxy that Marshall referenced was very much associated with Jeb's brother. SC doesn't just represent a break from 9/11 orthodoxies, it represents a clear break within the Republican Party from the Bush legacy.

Yes, this really is finally the break.
