Siblings stick together: Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush tells President Obama not to bully brother
Former Florida Republican Gov. Jeb Bush is telling President Obama to stop picking on his brother.
Calling the President’s behavior childish, Bush told The New York Times on Wednesday that he’s sick of Obama blaming George W. Bush for weak oversight of the oil industry, in addition to current economic and budgetary turmoil.
“It’s kind of like a kid coming to school saying, ‘The dog ate my homework,’” Bush said of the President. “It’s childish. This is what children do until they mature. They don’t accept responsibility.”
Bush then said the President isn’t a 21st-century leader and described him as “Hubert Humphrey on steroids.”
The former governor added that Obama spends too much time focusing on how he is perceived in Washington. “He really seems like he’s getting caught up in what people are writing about him.”
He goes on to suggest Obama needs a new hobby.
“I mean, good God, man, read a book!” Bush said. “Go watch ESPN!”
