Jeb!: If I'm The Nominee, There Will Be A Stark Contrast From Clinton

There certainly will be a stark contrast between Mr. "Right to Rise" Jeb! and Hillary Clinton if they end up being the presidential nominees.

There certainly will be a stark contrast between Mr. "Right to Rise" Jeb! and Hillary Clinton if they end up being the presidential nominees. Here's how Bush responded when asked what he thought of Hillary Clinton's debate performance on this Sunday's State of the Union on CNN:

BUSH: She looked beatable because of the ideas she embraced. She's a... she did a good job in the debate for sure. She's a smart person, no doubt about that, but every chance she had to lay out a different approach than the one we're on now, she actually doubled or tripled down on it. More taxes, more regulation, more creating barriers on people's ability to rise up.

I think there will be a stark contrast. If I'm elected the Republican nominee, it will be a stark contrast of, do you believe in the country's future with a hopeful optimistic message that gives people the capacity to achieve earned success, or should we manage the decline? And I”m excited about that.

The person who needed to "manage the decline" in our economy was our current president who had to clean up after the mess his brother made that almost put us into another Great Depression. Of course Tapper didn't ask him what "decline" he was talking about.

Tapper also asked him about Trump's demand that they shorten up the next Republican debate to two hours. Bush said he was up for three or even four, but four might be too mentally exhausting. On that point, I agree with him. I've had a belly full after one, quite frankly.
