The frustration is kicking in. Jeb Bush thought this was going to be easy, at least a lot easier than it is now. After all, he shares the same last name as two previous presidents – albeit disastrous presidents – so the name recognition is already there. Everybody knows who he is. This was supposed to be so much easier.
The last time we checked in on the sub-par Republican politician, he was so frustrated with how his campaign for president was going, that he fired half his campaign staff and reduced the pay for his remaining employees. Starting on Nov. 1, the campaign will cut payroll costs by 40 percent, downsize its Miami headquarters by more than 50 percent, reduce travel costs by 20 percent and cut 45 percent of spending on things other than media and voter contact.
Yes, the frustration is setting in and this was manifested when Jeb threw a fit on Saturday, telling Americans that he has better things to do than running for president.
“If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want anything, I don’t want any part of it. I don’t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation. I’ve got a lot of really cool things I cold do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”
And that’s not all. MSNBC is reporting that when addressing the concern that his campaign is falling apart, Bush responded, “Blah blah blah blah, that’s my answer, blah blah blah.”
And that folks explains why Jeb! is polling at 5%!
