Bush dynasty in its death throes sends out freshman co-ed to take down Donald Trump-Howie Carr

@Jeb Bush best boss ever! Go go governor!!!!!!!!

10/14/15, "Carr: Bush ‘volunteer’ fails in attempt to trip up Trump," Boston Herald, Howie Carr

"Once upon a time, the Bush Crime Family employed perhaps the greatest political dirty trickster of all time--the late Lee Atwater.

A quarter-century later, in the dynasty’s death throes, with the family’s fading fortunes riding on a lost soul whose picture you can find in the dictionary next to the phrase, “deer in the headlights,” the Bushes send out a freshman co-ed from St. Anselm’s to take down Donald Trump.

What could possibly go wrong?

The girl’s name is Lauren Rose Batchelder, and here are a couple of her recent tweets:

@Jeb Bush best boss ever! Go go governor!!!!!!!!

During the CNN debate last month: I love you Jeb. I’m sorry you have to be next to trump (sic).”

The Bush campaign says she’s not a “staffer.” She’s a “volunteer.” It’s like “Mission: Impossible.” If you’re captured or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. As Trump noted yesterday, if Juan Ellis Bush is so pathetic his campaign can’t even cover their tracks on this kind of fifth-rate dirty trick, how are they going to do if they ever have to square off against Putin?

Lauren looks like a cross between Pippi Longstocking and Squeaky Fromme. You can check out all her photos online — she goes gaga over any RINO visiting the Granite State. Juan, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham. She even stalked Bernie Sanders for a photo.

Here is the question she asked Trump on Columbus Day at a moonbat-fest in Manchester called “No Labels.”

“So, maybe I’m wrong, maybe you can prove me wrong, but I don't think you're a friend to women. How...what..."

The most amazing thing about this whole episode is that in the entire state of New Hampshire, maybe five people are planning to vote for Bush, and yet Trump was able to not only find one of them, but to allow her to ask him a stupid question.

“I want to get paid the same as a man,” she said, “and I think you understand that. So if you become president, will a woman make the same as a man?”

If you do as good a job as a man, Trump answered, swatting her away like a mosquito. Let’s put it this way, Lauren: When it comes to turning around elections for one of the Bushes, you’re no Willie Horton.

But what were Bush’s crack consultants thinking? They have $125 million in the bank and Lauren was the best suicide bomber they could come up with? Trump took on Carly Fiorina, Megyn Kelly and John McCain, not to mention every illegal alien on every welfare roll…and not only is he not dinged, his poll numbers actually go up.

Surely the Bushes can pick up some unemployed dirty trickster on waivers. Maybe John Sasso can come out of retirement. Is G. Gordon Liddy still around?

As manager of the New York Mets in 1962, Casey Stengel famously asked a question that now equally applies to the floundering Bush campaign:

"Can't anybody here play this game?”"

Comment: The Bush dynasty was entirely the fault of Ronald Reagan. George Bush #1 and his RNC cronies hated Reagan, fought viciously to prevent him from getting the nomination. Reagan defeated the Bush crowd, then inexplicably turned around and named Bush his VP.
