Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said Sunday that it’s time for President Barack Obama to stop blaming his brother, former President George W. Bush, for the country’s economic troubles and accept responsibility.
“I think it is time for him to move on,” he told host David Gregory on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I mean — look, the guy was dealt a difficult hand, no question about it. But he’s had three years. His policies have failed, and rather than blame others — which I know we were taught that that was kind of unbecoming over time — you just can’t keep doing that. Maybe offer some fresh new solutions to the problems that we face.”
Bush added he doesn’t expect that to “happen between now and election day.”
He later talked about his family’s legacy in the Republican Party, including both his father George H.W. Bush and brother’s presidencies and his own time as governor.
