Jeb about W: ‘He kept us safe’

George W. Bush miss me yetBy Lynn R. Mitchell

The biggest applause and loudest cheers from Wednesday’s CNN Republican presidential debate came when Jeb Bush defended his brother against negative comments from Donald Trump (see Jeb Bush defends brother, says George W. Bush ‘kept us safe’):

Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush defended his brother, former President George W. Bush, against criticism from Donald Trump Wednesday night, saying “he kept us safe.”

“Your brother and your brother’s administration gave us Barack Obama,” Mr. Trump taunted the former Florida governor. “It was such a disaster those last three months [of George W. Bush’s administration] that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected.”

Jeb Bush retorted, “As it relates to my brother, there’s one thing I know for sure: he kept us safe.” The audience at the debate cheered.

“You remember the rubble [at the World Trade Center]?” Mr. Bush asked. “He sent a clear signal that the United States would be strong, and fight Islamic terrorism, and he did keep us safe.”

Mr. Trump replied, “You feel safe right now? I don’t feel so safe.”

Here’s a question for Mr. Trump: What part of “no bombs falling on your head” do you not understand? President Bush kept us safe. His leadership deserves thanks.
