Jeb Bush: ‘My Brother Is An Idiot’ Mar. 13, 2013

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush continued his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination this morning by further distancing himself from his unpopular sibling.

In an interview on Good Morning America, Jeb Bush finally admitted that although he loves his brother George W. Bush dearly, the former two-term president is sometimes "an idiot" In the studio to promote his recent book, the younger Bush faced questions about his U-turn on immigration reform, his family's political legacy, and his plans for 2016. The highlight came, however, when George Stephanopoulos asked Jeb about his thoughts on his brother's presidency.

"You have to admit though," Stephanopoulos asked, "That whatever your political leanings, your brother George W. Bush wasn't the brightest president we've ever had."

"Well you know I love my brother," Jeb responded, "I think he's a wonderful person. But we've always said in my family that George got the looks and I got the brains. "He made a lot of mistakes as president, there's no question. But he didn't make those mistakes because he's a bad guy. My brother, he's just an idiot sometimes. But deep down, he has a good soul."

They are a united crime family.

2. Th whole family is criminal.

It is bullshit to claim that W did anything out of the goodness of his soul. He may be an idiot but he is not an ill-informed one. He and his crew knew exactly what they were doing and they accomplished much of their goals. Our current budget problems and the opportunity to weaken Social Security among those goals.
Jeb is a bastard as are all the members of his family. If Americans are stupid enough to elect another Bush then Americans are far stupider than even I could have guessed.

3. The OP is a bit of satire.

You were saying something about how other people are very stupid. Please continue.

7. My comments were a reaction to the idea that any Bush

ever take public office again, not an indication that I missed the satire (after all it is clearly stated in the post above mine).
I don't happen to think that joking about Bush family crimes is funny. They have cost us too much.
I'm not sure that warrants the label "very stupid".

6. We figured that out long before you did, Jeb.

And you're supposed to be the "smart" person in the Bush family.

12. I agree with the idiot part, but not the good soul part.
