Watch Jeb Bush try to remember something he will never forget.

Courtesy of the Daily Banter: 

There are a lot of difficult things about being a Republican, but none so difficult, it would appear, as remembering things they’ll never forget. Whether it’s forgetting 9/11 or forgetting the other 9/11, or even just forgetting the third thing on your own list of three things, rememberating is hard, y’all! 

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush found that out on Wednesday when he tried to make a point by bringing up a certain space shuttle disaster that he said he’d “never forget,” then promptly could not remember when the hell it happened. The audience at the Concord, NH town hall meeting tries to help him out, but he can’t quite get there.

Wow! This guy may be one of the worst presidential candidates I have seen in quite some time. 

And I still remember Rick Perry.

My favorite part of the video is hearing the audience try to help him, and he still can't get it right.

Here is a lesson to all of you future potential political candidates, never start a statement with "I will never forget" in the middle of struggling to remember what it is that you will never forget.

And member folks, THIS is the smart brother!

    If he's the smart one, it doesn't say much for the rest of them. I never could suffer through a Dubya speech; he always came across as such a doofus.

  2. I can't believe I'm about to say something positive about Dubya, but at least his pandering was real. Jeb! is the most insincere candidate of all!

  3. When the previous one had gone up, I remember my husband remarking, "You know what the next big thing to go wrong is gonna be?" while pointing at the TV. "They're sending too many up too quickly and they're gonna get sloppy."

    When he came home the evening of the Challenger (late January 1986, Jeb!), I told him 'don't do any more prognosticating.'

    How could you forget Jeb? Doesn't everybody remember St. Reagan's "slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God," written for the half-senile lummox by somebody intelligent?

    Bush will pick Lizzy Cheney as his VP.

    When someone is not an authentic person they should have a good script and be able to memorize their lines...

    5:05, "High Flight" was written in 1941. Reagan used it, it wasn't written for him.

  7. Elect Bernie President then send all Bush and Cheney to the moonbase6:12 AM

    I think this was the same appearance where Jeb! endorsed the Newt Gingrich moonbase idea.

    "When former House Speaker Newt Gingrich proposed the idea of forming colonies on the moon during his 2012 presidential bid, he got a lot of laughs.

    But not from Jeb Bush.

    The former Florida governor said Wednesday that he actually liked the idea.

    Recalling the skeptical responses to Gingrich's pitch, Bush said he remembered thinking, "Really? I think it's pretty cool.""


    ""I'll never forget that, when I went as governor of the state of Florida on the tarmac for a tribute to the astronauts that died in, I think it was 2005, was it? No ... the ... um ... yeah, no the other one, 2002," he said, as he and an audience member tried to remember the name of the shuttle. "In the 2000s, it was horrible. It's a recognition that this is a dangerous endeavor, but it's worth us, for all sorts of reasons, to be engaged."

    Reporters later asked Bush who he would send to the moon to govern the new colonies, asking whether if Florida Sen. Marco Rubio or businessman Donald Trump -- two of his biggest rivals -- come to mind.

    "There's lots of people that could be effective leaders of the moon," he said with sarcasm. "Let me think about it, I'll get back to you on that in the next millennium."

    "THIS is the smart brother! "

    JUST STOP IT, GRYPHEN!! Just stop your lying libtard ways!!

    NOBODY ever said Jebby! was "smart"! NOBODY! You've completely distorted reality to support your obvious Jim Gilmore-loving partisan bias! (Ed. note: A man named Jim (or possible Juan, Jerrard or Jan) Gilmore is rumored to be running for the GOP nom, but a Google search provides no evidence to support that rumor)

    All anybody has EVER said about Jebby! is that he is "SMARTER" than Shrub! And if you know anything at all about that family, you know being the SMARTER brother doesnt exactly qualify for MENSA membership, if you get my meaning.

    Prediction: by early 2017, the 2016 nomination contest will be known in the Bush! family euphemistically as "The Troubles".

    I feel sorry for you. smh

    I've always felt, as soon as it happened, that that specific disaster was a sign from the Gods, the universe, or a more intelligent race of beings, that was telling us NOT it invade Iraq, especially over false pretenses. Think about it!

    After Claiming His Brother ‘Kept Us Safe,’ Jeb Bush Tries To Blame Bill Clinton For 9/11

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush continued to defend the record of his brother, George W. Bush, while on the presidential campaign trail Monday. The younger Bush said his older brother deserved a “tip of the hat” for keeping the nation safe for the final 2,600 days of his presidential administration and suggested that President Bill Clinton deserved more blame for the 9/11 attacks. But once again, Bush offered a factually inaccurate take on the historic events.

    In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Bush argued that “when we were attacked, my brother created an environment where for 2,600 days, we were safe. No one attacked us again. And he changed the laws, he did everything necessary, he united the country, and he kept us safe. Just a tip of the hat to that.”

    During the post-9/11 days of the Bush administration, Americans endured domestic attacks in other forms, including anthrax attacks, a failed airline shoe bomber, the DC sniper, the Ohio sniper, and ricin in the Capitol — and thousands of U.S. troops were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    There is a simple reason why a Bush is running: The prevent the Bush family from being tried for crimes against humanity and the US government. There was the attempted coup in the 40's against Roosevelt, the Kennedys' assassinations, Iran Contra, 9/11, etc. Watch:

    Good lord. That's pathetic. Jeb cannot connote excitement: it's time to call it a day. Donate your campaign war chest to a worthy (meaning not conservative) cause and pack it in, buddy. It's not happening.

    And he wants access to "the button"? ?????? WTF? How hard can it be to study facts off of index cards? Hell, even Sarah got her name right. This dipshit's got an exclamation point for a last name, when it should be "Zzzzzzzzzz"


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
