Former Florida Governor, Republican presidential candidate, and World’s First Human Sad Trombone Jeb Bush has been having more and more difficulty convincing anyone he will ever be president, least of all himself, but things got sad even by Jeb’s standards Sunday morning.

Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace tried to get Jeb to feel the fork by gently reminding him that there are these things called polls, and they measure how much or how little people care about what you have to say. Jeb sounded a pathetically “optimistic” note:

Wallace: Did you fail to come up with a compelling message for voters? I understand you want to talk about the future, but the past does give some indication as to what went wrong and what you need to improve.

Bush: Chris, I respect your world. Your world is all about process. My world is about connecting with voters in these early states to build momentum. We have a national campaign, we’re going to be on every ballot in every state. That’s a hard thing to do. Not every candidate has done that.

Congratulations, Jeb, you are definitely ahead of Jim Webb and Deez Nuts on that count. This former frontrunner is now literally looking for a participation ribbon.

    How sad for jeb. The ruling class was hoping the election would be between the royal families, the clintons & bushes.

      The Bushes are three-generation American “royalty”.

      But the Clinton’s earned where they are.

    This raises a question I’ve wondered about.

    Polls are one thing but candidates need organization. It’s a lot of work and planning to get on the ballots of all states.

    Has Trump done this?

    So I guess that means when Jeb loses primaries in all fifty states, he’ll be able to brag about being good at “creating consensus”?

    • Mensa Member

      He. He. You make a good point.

      Jeb Bush has unified the left and the right in a consensus against Jeb Bush.

    With all the gawddamned money he’s spent, it would really be a sad statement if he didn’t clear that bar at least. “My staff completed all the paperwork! So there!”
