Jeb Bush: Obama’s just blaming my brother

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Former Florida governor Jeb Bush, addressing a rally for Mitt Romney here Wednesday afternoon, lashed out at President Obama for blaming many of the nation’s problems on his brother President George W. Bush.

In remarks introducing the Republican presidential nominee, Bush accused Obama of trying to divide the nation instead of focusing on practical, bipartisan solutions to economic and other problems the country faces.

“Do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together?” Bush asked. The crowd of 3,500 at the University of Miami yelled, “No!”

“His entire strategy is to blame others – starting with my brother, of course,” Bush said. “Basically, he blames every possible thing rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and to find common ground.”
