Jeb Bush Asks Audience: ‘Please Clap.’

Share

Just when you thought Jeb Bush couldn’t get any sadder as a presidential candidate…

In a town hall event Wednesday in Hanover, N. H., Jeb attempted to speak forcefully on his commitment to national security.

“So here’s my pledge to you. I will be a Commander-in-Chief that will have the back of the military. I won’t trash talk. I won’t be a Divider-in-Chief, or an Agitator-in-Chief,” he declared.

“I won’t be out there blow-hardin’, talkin’ a big game without backing it up,” he continued, inconsistently dropping his G’s. “I think the next president needs to be a lot quieter, but send a signal that we’re prepared to act in the national security interests of this country — to get back in the business of creating a more peaceful world.”

He then paused, and said in a sunken voice: “Please clap.”

As the crowd applauded, he smiled with what seemed to be a sense of relief.

    Wow. Just… wow.
    Looks like the “smart one” won’t get a shot after all.

      “Trusted leadership”–from a guy that keeps defending the W., yeah, that’s not gonna happen.

    What I can only say is: “desperate people do desperate things”.

    At what point does he decide he can’t sink any farther and just get out while he can still salvage some self respect?

    Bout time for Jeb to cash in his chips and head back Florida.
