Jeb Bush Drops Out

Published

The “death watch” is over … with the coup de grace administered in a state previously regarded as “Bush Country.”

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush succumbed to reality – dropping out of the 2016 “Republican” presidential race following another disappointing finish in an early-state primary where his campaign blew millions of dollars.  This time it was South Carolina – a state won by his father George H.W. Bush in 1988 and 1992 and by his brother George W. Bush in 2000.

Bush entered the “First in the South” presidential primary backed by establishment chieftains including U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, former U.S. ambassador David Wilkins and the consulting empire of Richard Quinn.

None of it mattered …

He got creamed …
