Pearl Clutching Jeb Bush Declares This Campaigning Stuff Is Just Too Hard “I’ve Got Better Things I Could Be Doing”…

In a rather typical presentation of pouty-faced Jeb Bush today he declared this competition thing is just too much, too much.  In essence saying he didn’t get into this race because he was actually expected to do any work or anything.  Look, if you’re not just going to hand it to me, well, to heck with all y’all – go on and elect Trump.

(Via New York Times) A day after his campaign slashed staff and salaries to retrench ahead of the Iowa caucuses, Jeb Bush decried the toxic tone of the presidential race and suggesting that “demonizing” people isn’t what he signed up for in this campaign.

Mr. Bush made the remarks at a town hall in South Carolina, where, according to a report by CNN, he seemed fired up about taking on the person who has overshadowed him during the campaign, Donald J. Trump, who is leading most Republican polls so far.

“If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, I don’t want any part of it. I don’t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation.

“I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”

    What is his point? Trump would have nothing to do with “gridlock”,he is not in Congress. Did he not encounter gridlock as governor? How about you fight TO get things done.

    See, this statement is very telling here. This show’s he’s really not all that into the gig ( I really don’t think he wants the job). It appears he’s going along like everyone is saying, because he wasn’t supposed to have to work at it. He also shows a real weakness that points out his lack of willingness to work with people, R’s & D’s, for the best solution. Sometimes that takes months. The fact Obama had no skills at this is why he was given a pass, but a Republican, snapping his fingers, demanding, not gonna happen. He too will not raise the seas…damn if I don’t hate politicians when they talk like that, he too will keep us in that “decline”. His statement here needs to hammered as his latent inability to want to see policy/programs initiated then the follow through.

    It appears it’s time for Jeb to take his little red wagon and go home.

      Trump could, and likely will, encounter plenty of “gridlock” if he becomes president. ANY president would, up to a point. And maybe NO president can fully fix that. But if anyone CAN, it seems to me it’s gonna have to be a guy like Trump… if HE can’t solve some of the “gridlock” problems, nobody can, at least no current, living politician.

        Not all gridlock is a bad thing, especially if it stops the march of the globalist COC and their agenda. I think President Trump will stiffen the backgones of many who were elected to congress as conservatives but turned coat when faced with the pressures there.

        Trump has the innate ability to fire up the people electoric who in turn can FIRE those in congress within two years who are part of the gridlock……………it will take time, but he can clean up everything by the start of his second term……………ie: 1st 4 years will be house cleaning along with his promises.

        In the house of representatives continue with their business as usual (gridlock) policy, Trump will call them out and two years down the road they are gone. Fired! Senators up for election in the next cycle as well. When Regan was president the air traffic controllers union went on strike threatening to bring air travel to a stop. Regan fired them and brought in Military controllers to avoid problems, and guess what? Anyone who got a wild idea about bring America to it’s knees waited until he left office.

        Also of worthy note: Regan’s election prompted the Ayatollah to release hostages ( that Carter failed to rescue) before Regan had a chance to take action. One bomb on Gadhafi’s Mansion was all it took to keep him out of the picture for over twenty years. Anyone remember what became of Manuel Noriega (bye bye)?

        We need a president that is a powerful figure. Yeb…go do something that is cool…Stand on your own two feet!

          I’m all in for Trump, and I think he’ll (eventually) do amazing things. But I’m sure not wanting another Reagan. I’ve given my opinions about the guy here many times, so I’ll not go into it again. I felt really sorry for him and Nancy and the whole family when he started getting sick… but while he was president? Nope, NOT a fan, quite the opposite. Anyway no, I don’t see Donald as the second-coming of a person like Reagan…

        personally I’d rather have gridlock than a free flowing stream of one party’s desires and agenda. People have been calling gridlock what could be referred to as debate and deliberation in a defined process.

        I’d hate to think what this country would be like if there hadn’t been gridlock the last 5 years or so.

        JEB (that’s not his name you know that’s his initials) seems to be getting pissed and exasperated, he might well be out of it before some of the 0%ers if that’s where he’s at now.

      What is so staggering is like with the Thanks Matt moment, you can tell that he really believed he was entitled to the nomination, that he didn’t have to do much if any work, that it was all preordained and he just needed to turn up. All the other GOPe candidates were told they were there to prop Jeb up and propel him to the nomination.

      BUT The Donald decided to run, so the whole process was thrown into chaos. The game plan was all messed up. Then the water boy got ambitious.

      The terrifying thing is though, if Donald Trump did not run, then Jeb would of been the nominee, no matter how useless he was.

      The other beauty of Donald Trump running is that he exposed the whole game plan, the GOPe for what they are, Jeb Bush for what he is, the media for what they are, including all the pundits. It was a revelation, or rather a confirmation of what we all probably thought anyway.

    I just read how Trump brought up Ben Carson’s religion and razzed him about it: “I’m Presbyterian. That’s down the middle of road,” he said. “I mean, Seventh-day Adventist I don’t know about.” Some people would say that’s dirty pool – and they may be right – but that’s the funniest damn thing I’ve read in a long time. Trump’s down to Carson in Iowa because of Evangelicals so he goes right at Carson’s religion! Lmfao. It’s like LBJ accusing his opponent of having a sister who was a thespian. Look, this thing is between Trump and Jeb. If it means getting downs drilling in the mud, so be it. Bush the Elder used Willie Horton. W accused McCain of having “fathered a black child”. Bubba Clinton threw Sista Souljah under the bus. Honestly, if you can’t fight a little dirty, you just aren’t even in the game.

        So, in other words, Trump sees Carson surging in Iowa because of his “evangelical” credentials and sets about letting Iowans know with one simple, controversial statement he knows will hit the headlines that Carson’s no evangelical, he’s a 7th Day Adventist. Non-evangelicals see this as “fighting dirty” because we don’t know a thing about the differences, when in actuality, the evangelicals are saying to themselves “wait, Carson’s a 7th Day Adventist????”

Trump should focus on his lack of leadership skills as a result of his quiet demeanor. Stay away from the religion.
