FULL OF CRAP: Jeb Bush, ‘Not a Single Shred of Evidence’ That Govt Spying Violated Civil Rights

Your future isn’t looking so bright for a presidential run, Jeb.

“There’s not a shred of evidence that anybody’s civil liberties have been violated by it. Not a shred,” Bush said Thursday in New Hampshire, in comments after a breakfast organized by the Concord Chamber of Commerce, according to the Huffington Post.

The comment puts Bush, who is considering a presidential bid, on the opposite side of one his likely rivals, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky).

Bush vocalized his support for NSA surveillance just hours after Paul, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, ended a 10 hour Senate filibuster in protest of the government surveillance. Paul was speaking out against the renewal of portions of the Patriot Act, anti-terrorism legislating signed into law in 2001 by Bush’s older brother, former President George W. Bush. NSA surveillance is authorized through the Patriot Act.
