Jeb Bush: Stop Blaming My Brother for Driving the Country Off a Cliff
Jebby is a little miffed that people keep holding W. responsible for totally wrecking the country.
Asked about House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer blaming the former President Bush for the nation’s fiscal outlook, Jeb Bush said:
"I was on the plane yesterday coming up to Washington and I heard someone complain that their child’s acne was because of George Bush. Of course last week the Olympics didn’t come to Chicago, that was my brother’s fault. And at some point people are going to have to put on their big-boy pants and assume responsibility for the great challenges and opportunities our country has…"
Act like a Bush, Democrats. Man up, take responsibility!
President Bush on Friday put responsibility squarely on the CIA for his erroneous claim that Iraq tried to acquire nuclear material from Africa, prompting the director of intelligence to publicly accept full blame for the miscue.
"I gave a speech to the nation that was cleared by the intelligence services," Bush told reporters in Uganda.
Don’t blame others for stuff that happens on your watch.
Nobody organized this country or the international community to fight the terrorist threat that was upon us until 9/11. … We were not left a comprehensive strategy to fight al-Qaida.
Quit making schoolboy "the dog ate my homework" excuses.
"When I took office, our economy was beginning a recession," Bush said in a speech at a Mississippi high school. "Then our economy was hit by terrorists. Then our economy was hit by corporate scandals."
You’re in charge. Put on your big-boy pants, you Democrat pansies.
I think when the history of this period is written, people will realize a lot of the decisions that were made on Wall Street took place over a decade or so, before I arrived," he [Bush] said.
Because if anyone knows how to cowboy up and assume responsibility, it’s a Bush.
