"Most of the candidates running do not have a proven record. They haven't been a governor, they haven't had to make a tough decision.... The other candidates, really, look, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are all really gifted but they have between them, two bills that they sponsored that have become law. They can't point to doing much because in the age of Obama nothing is happening."
---Jeb Bush on Senators Marco Rubio, Rand Paul & Ted Cruz having no track record while in the senate
Jeb Bush, 2016 GOP Presidential candidate & former FL Governor, called in to Kilmeade & Friends from New Hampshire to talk about Sarah Palin blaming her son's PTSD on President Obama, why he feels Rubio, Paul & Cruz can't point to any accomplishments during their terms as senators, his thoughts about Hillary Clintons e-mail server and whether or not his brother, former President George W Bush, will join him on the campaign trail. Plus, Jeb Bush saw a moose!
Jeb Bush comparing and contrasting his record to other candidates, specifically Rubio, Paul & Cruz
(BUSH) It's a story of accomplishment, not just talking about it, which is different from other candidates.
(BRIAN) Who are you referring to?
(BUSH) Most of the candidates running do not have a proven record. They haven't been a governor, they haven't had to make a tough decision. Both Governor Kasich and Governor Christie can tell their story, I tell mine and mine is one of transformational governor. The other candidates, really, look, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are all really gifted but they have between them, two bills that they sponsored that have become law. They can't point to doing much because in the age of Obama nothing is happening.
Jeb Bush on Sarah Palin blaming her son Track's PTSD on President Obama
(BUSH) I don't know the details of that but I do know that we have a problem with post-traumatic stress, it's a serious problem and the veterans administration needs to do a better job of creating centers of excellence to deal with veterans. Our communities need to rise up and help veterans. We have homeless veterans, we have people who are suicidal and who have committed suicide. It's a national tragedy and all of us have a responsibility to roll up our sleeves, I don't think blaming the President is appropriate but you can blame the President for the dysfunction of the department of Veterans Affairs where they are giving out bonuses totaling 140 million dollars and included bonuses for people that reduced workloads for the waitlist for veterans but they didn't give veterans care and veterans dies, that's a scandal.

(BRIAN) Have you gotten a commitment from 43 to help you out?
(BUSH) He will do whatever he is asked to do, the campaign is sorting that out. My brother is very popular in South Carolina for sure and New Hampshire and Iowa. Smart people are trying to sort this out. I love my brother, he loves me. He wants to help, he has been very helpful and he has given me good, solid advice and we will sort that out in the next couple of days.
(BRIAN) You want to tell me now? You do know.
(BUSH) No, I don't know. I really don't know. I promise, Brian.
