Jeb, oh Jeb! Why couldn’t you have listened to that sage Mama Bush when she gave you advice on running for the presidency: Don’t! You would have spared yourself so much embarrassment and humiliation. You could have spared the country from watching one of the worst political campaigns in recent memory.
With all that money, one would have thought you could put together a competent campaign staff. But you have lurched from one gaffe to another. Your brain trust just never could figure out how to handle the 800-pound gorilla in the room: the Bush name. (The GOP Battle Of The Brands)
Now you’ve been reduced to telling Iowa voters, ““I’m gonna get better. I oughta get better. I know I have to get better.” Really? And you follow up that bizarre statement with, “You know, poll numbers, they go up and they go down.” Seriously?
Telling voters, who have long written you off, you’re a “grinder” and that “I eat nails when I wake up,” is just laughable. But of course, neither you nor your out-of-touch campaign apparatus sees the joke.
For God’s sake, do yourself and the country a favor, pull the plug on this rotting corpse otherwise known as your presidential campaign. Yes, we know the GOP establishment hasn’t completely given up on you; that there is still some money in the bank. But be a man and do the right thing.
Even Captain Obvious is asking you, and all those around you, to see the writing on the wall.
