Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush told Fox and Friends last week that populist anger toward Washington could result in a political "tsunami" that sweeps many Democrats out of Congress come the mid-term elections this November.
"I think we’re living in such a complex world and our federal government just appearsand not just appearsis pretty incompetent," said Bush.
The former governor blasted President Obama for not adapting his ideology in light of populist displeasure regarding the administration’s policies. Bush also mentioned that the president and other Democrats should have learned something from Republican Scott Brown’s recent senatorial victory in Massachusetts, a historically liberal state.
"My prediction is if the administration and Congress doesn’t try to change its course, there will be huge gains for challengers to incumbents, but most particularly for conservatives, most particularly for Republicans," said Bush.
Meanwhile, former Vice President Dick Cheney told political activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday that he believes Barack Obama is a "one-term president."
Cheney noted that the recent GOP victories in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia are "enormously encouraging" for Republican prospects this fall, according to The Washington Post.
