Jeb Bush on RNC: George W. ‘Is Smart to Stay Away’
LOL, maybe George is 'the smart one'.

Ben Forer reports at ABC News:

August 29, 2012

(via ABC News)

In a Republican convention that has yet to prominently acknowledge the party’s last president, George W. Bush, Bush’s brother, Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, hinted to ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer that his brother would be a part of his speech on Thursday night.


Bush says he does not find it strange that his brother has not been mentioned in the convention hall and understands why his brother decided not to attend the festivities in Tampa.

“(My brother) knows that he will be a target. The president has spent a lot of time and energy around this notion that ‘I can’t do anything about it. It’s all Bush’s fault. You know I’m trying, but it’s not working because it’s Bush’s fault,’” Bush told Sawyer. “Now we’re in year four of a presidency, think back into American history, think of a president that is blaming his predecessor in the fourth year. So why encourage the bad behavior and I think my brother is smart to stay away.”


Bush also had tremendous praise for Christie.

“I thought he was very effective, now I’m biased, I love the guy.

America's shame.

blames Bush for the condition of the 2008 economy?

And why did Bush stay away from the 2008 convention?

Am the only one having trouble making sense of Jeb's comments?

Then again, no one expects a member of the Bush crime family to make sense. What in hell was I thinking/

You can always gauge a man's patriotism by the size of their flag lapel pin.
