Jeb Bush, who has lately been pushing the meme that “he is his own man” has hired an openly gay man as his top communications aide as a precursor to his a presumed 2016 Republican presidential hopeful run .
The chosen quisling in question, Tim Miller, (pictured above right) is currently executive director of the America Rising Political Action Committee (PAC) and wrote on Twitter Friday (20 February): ‘Thrilled and honored to work for a great person with the right message.
Miller was deputy communications director for the Republican National Committee, worked on Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, and was national press secretary of Jon Huntsman’s 2012 presidential campaign
Jeb Bush plans to name Tim Miller, executive director of America Rising PAC, as his top communications aide, Republican sources told POLITICO on Friday. Miller initially will be a senior adviser to Bush’s Right to Rise PAC, and is expected to become communications director if Bush launches his campaign. Kristy Campbell, who has been the PAC’s chief spokesperson, likely will be national press secretary of the campaign, or have some senior communications adviser role. Miller is an aggressive, younger operative who can be expected to inject a pugilistic style into Bush’s high command. America Rising – based in Arlington, Va. — is the two-year-old GOP opposition-research group that relentlessly spattered Democratic Senate candidates during the last cycle.
Being a self loathing quisling sure must pay well.
