Jeb Bush issued a very odd ultimatum to the American voting public last week.
Just 24 hours after Jeb Bush downsized his campaign to fit his struggle in the polls, Bush tells America if they want to elect Trump, go right ahead. Jeb Bush has better things to do than sit around and be demonized.
Speaking in South Carolina today, Jeb Bush said (via CNN’s Jake Tapper), “If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want anything, 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 cold do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and feeling compelled to demonize them.
That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”
Following his dismal debate performance in Boulder on Wednesday night, the public and important donors may be ready to take Bush’s offer to heart, thereby freeing Jeb to pursue all the “really cool things” to combat the self-inflicted misery of sitting around as a target of those whom would unfairly demonize deserving heirs to the US presidency.
Indeed, with his poll numbers headed southward, voters seem to be telling Jeb: Go ahead, Jeb. And do not let the door hit you in the posterior!
Jeb Bush: Free at Last!
