|"I probably shouldn't have said that."|
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Friday night touted his role as a member of the Bush family while discussing how he would improve the United States' relationship with other countries as president.
"Name a country in the world where our relationship is better today than the day that Hillary of Clinton became secretary of state," Bush said during a speech at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference in Michigan, according to CNN.
Bush said that the U.S. might have a better relationship with Iran, Cuba and Burma, but said that ties with countries in the Middle East and Israel have worsened under the Obama administration. The former governor said that he would improve relations with other countries as president.
"I know how to do this because, yes, I am a Bush," he said, according to CNN. "I happened to see two really good presidents develop relationships with other countries."
How can anyone be this disconnected from reality?
Under his brother's administration Americans had to pretend to be Canadian just to travel overseas.
The only countries that seemed to like us better were Israel, because Netanyahu is just as big of a hawk as Dick Cheney, and Saudi Arabia, who loved us so much that they sent fifteen of their people over to help Bush start the war with Iraq that he wanted.
You know when this whole 2016 campaign thing first started I was convinced that in the end it would be Hillary versus Jeb!
Now I don't know what to think.
From now on my go to answer will be, "Beats the hell out of me."
