If you needed any more proof that Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign is dead in the water, here’s your sign. It happened at a campaign stop in the Granite State of New Hampshire.
Here’s the report from the New York Post:
“At the final stop of the day on Tuesday, the former Florida governor ripped off an inspired speech in New Hampshire that seemed to be going pretty well. He vowed not to ‘be out there blowharding’ or to become an ‘agitator-in-chief.’ He said we need to get ‘back in the business of creating a more peaceful world.’
“The crowd must have gotten it turned around, thinking he meant his campaign needs a quieter audience because you could hear a ‘Bush 2016’ pin drop when he finished.
“So what does Bush do? Why, he does what any fading candidate would do in the face of such humiliation. He asked for some applause. Politely and exasperatedly.“
Bush actually told the audience to “please clap” on this 33-second video clip.
Although Jeb has never been our favorite candidate, we almost feel bad for him in this instance. All that’s missing from this video is “Dandy Don” Meredith (former Monday Night Football announcer) singing “Turn out the lights… the party’s over. They say that all… good things must end…”
And it sure looks like the 2016 presidential party is over for Jeb Bush.
Do you think this is a sure sign that Republican and conservative voters want to “stay out of the Bushes?”
