Polar Opposites

Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times writes that Jeb Bush has found his message, he's the anti-Trump. Sorry, Doyle, that role - the polar opposite of boisterous, crude Donald  - is already occupied by the too-cool-for-school Obama.

Being unlike Obama in every possible way is Trump's road to success, at this point a better path than those traveled by other GOP candidates. This makes attacking Trump look like a defense of Obama-style politics, now thoroughly discredited. In 2016 the one thing no Republican trying to survive the primaries dare do is be associated in the minds of voters with Barack Obama.
