Jeb Bush Tests Campaign Theme By Blasting Clinton
[su_right_ad]As Jeb Bush hits the campaign trail for Republican candidates, it appears as though he’s trying some language that would resonate in a presidential campaign. Attacking Hillary Clinton seems like a clue as to his 2016 intentions.
Speaking in Colorado on Wednesday, Bush took a jab at Clinton for her remarks last week – which she later backpedaled – in which she said “don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Without mentioning her name, Bush criticized Clinton’s “breathtaking” comments. He also called her a “candidate,” even though she has yet to declare herself.
“A candidate, a former Secretary of State, who was campaigning in Massachusetts where she said that ‘don’t let them tell you that businesses create jobs,’” Bush said, eliciting boos from the audience.
Of course Bush took the side of business.
“Well, the problem in America today is that not enough jobs are being created. They are created by businesses where people’s income rise where they can live a life of purpose and meaning independent of government. That should be the mission. And the only way that we do that is to create a climate of high sustained economic growth where everybody, everybody in this country has a chance at earned success.”
