Jeb Bush Gets SCHOOLED For Saying ‘Psych Majors Will All Work At Chick-fil-A’

Here’s what he said at a South Carolina town hall, attended by Senator Tim Scott and Rep. Trey Gowdy:

“Universities ought to have skin in the game. When a student shows up, they ought to say ‘Hey, that psych major deal, that philosophy major thing, that’s great, it’s important to have liberal arts … but realize, you’re going to be working a Chick-fil-A.'”

12. Ivy League legacies who fly in private jets getting crowds to rail against 'elitists'

Seems to be page 1 of the operations manual for the Bush family.

5. Wow, first the GOP blames mass shootings on the mentally ill

who, I guess, should be allowed to have guns because it's their right as an American, but being mentally ill, a non mentally ill person with a gun should take them out. That's the logic I get from the gun people, and Jeb is a full out, signed the legal murder bill, gun person.
So, the point of dissing psych majors is what? They may be the only ones left to sort out the mentally ill person with a gun from the non mentally ill person with a gun.

Oh, Jebby, do you even know what you're saying anymore? ..

19. Anti-intellectualism for WH candidates is mandatory in a party that has to pander to the GOP voters

of Iowa and NH, not exactly famous for their deep thinking, which is all done for them by Fox.

7. My Philosophy major husband had a Cornell scholarship named for him. But MORE TO THE POINT: Jeb is

 

disgracefully showing, as a CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT, let alone as a human being and probably a self-proclaimed Christian, CONTEMPT for those who DO work in the Food-Service industry.

SHAMEFUL.

11. People....Jeb does not want to be president.

Neither did George Jr. I remember pre-primaries they kept asking him if he was going to throw his hat in the ring. Repeatedly he said "NO"! Then wham bam one day he's the nominee. (His daddy probably took him aside and gave him a good talking to!) Same with Jeb.

Let's just sit back and enjoy listening to the crap that comes out of Jeb's mouth and see how far he goes before he is eliminated. He may not be the smart Bush but he must realize the stuff he is saying is going to hurt him. But, you have to be pretty dumb to out-dumb the republican base so his got a way to go.

Oh...and BTW...this newest remark was a double whammy because it's also a jab at Chik-fila which is a very Christian business. (Not open on Sundays and strongly anti gay) Why would he offend them by implying that only losers work there?

22. Jeb wants you to follow a technical career...

You know, one of those jobs that get shipped to India eventually, making you obsolete at 40? So, in the end you'll be a robot with nothing. They'll never ship to India the kind of work that a psych major can do in the local community. Psych mayors acquire the kind of self-regulation and interpersonal skills that Jeb would need desperately but never bothered to acquire.

31. If it doesn't get shipped to India...

...it'll be one of those fields like web design that changes so rapidly you have to be trained from scratch and replace all your development tools every six months.

Bill Gates once said something like, if Microsoft made cars they'd cost fifty bucks and get a thousand miles to the gallon. (Forgive me because that's not right, it's the CRS kicking in.) Actually, if software companies made cars you'd have to learn to drive all over again every year and your mechanic would have to throw away his whole toolbox every three.

26. I was a psych major and went on to become an attorney.

Never worked as one, but I've done fine so far.

As much as I already dislike this asshole, that comment gives me reason to dislike him even more.

Condescending asshole who has been rich all his life giving us career advice? F you, Jebby!!

27. Have you noticed how many Bushes

get government checks? That particular family has been getting paid by the government for at least three generations, and none of them have lifted a finger to make things better for the rest of us. They take tax money and scorn those who work at legitimate jobs and who are actually doing something positive with their lives.

Jeb's Jobs Plan Fails to Get Marco Rubio Back to Work

WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) - Today, Republican presidential candidate and former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush was widely criticized for his latest jobs plan failing to get presidential rival Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) back to work after missing a growing number of votes in the Senate. Bush's plan was declared "a complete failure" by conservative and liberal observers alike for its exclusive reliance on guilt, and failure to give Rubio any incentives to get back to work.
