Former Florida governor Jeb Bush offered a rhetorical hat tip to one-time rival President Trump on Friday for the nations surging economy.
The man deemed low-energy Jeb on the 2016 campaign trail by Mr. Trump took to Twitter to marvel at Americas high-octane economic growth 4.1 percent in the second quarter.
Todays news confirms that 4% growth isnt just aspirational, its achievable through policies that unleash the power of the market, Mr. Bush wrote. Credit to @POTUSs economic policies. To sustain this growth, we must pursue a free trade agenda and move to a merit-based immigration system.
Mr. Bush was one of the billionaires staunchest critics during the 2016 presidential election cycle.
I cant vote for Hillary Clinton and I cant vote for Donald Trump, and it breaks my heart, Mr. Bushsaid during a July 2016 interview on MSNBC. This is my the first time in my adult life Im confronted with this dilemma.
Politico noted the bitter-sweet news for Mr. Bush by revisiting his 2015 assertion that 4 percent growth was indeed possible.
The target was 104% nonsense according to a Vox headline, the website wrote on Friday. Economists on Bushs Promise: Close to 0 Percent Chance of 4 Percent Growth, was the headline on a blog post from The New York Times Upshot blog. Economists who spoke to Politico at the time were equally skeptical.
President Trump told reporters that the nations annual growth rate is the highest its been in over 13 years.
Weve turned it all around, Mr. Trump said. These numbers are very, very sustainable. This isnt a one-time shot. America is being respected again and America is winning again because were finally putting America first.(continued)

” To sustain this growth, we must pursue a free trade agenda and move to a merit-based immigration system.”
Go back to what he calls free trade, and more immigration. Howzabout to sustain this growth, we just do more of what Trump is doing??
Or how about to sustain it, Jeb calls for the GOP to end to the farce of an investigation that is holding him back?
It sounds like something his oldest son Prescott would (wisely) admit to. Prescott is one of the few Bush’s who seems anchored into the real world, not some RINO fantasy of submission to the left.
Jeb angling for a cabinet position?
How about appoint Low Energy Jeb to a consolution, such as in Tijuana? Or maybe somewhere more report in Mexico.
The Bushes gauged a healthy economy on how many invaders could infiltrate America’s infrastructure
How are guacamole bowl sales doin’?
No, I think was on how may factories were closed per quarter.
Nice of Jeb! to thank President Donald Trump. However Jeb!’s advice about what else “needs to be done” is a pile of horse poo. So, no thank you Jeb!. Your advice is worthless.
Jeb makes Jeff Sessions look like Jack LaLane on the energy scale.
If you watch that clip carefully you can see when Trump gooses Jeb! and up he goes!
No kidding. Jeb must be a bot. How could anyone be so disconnected from the reality of what is going on? Cognitive dissonance.
Nice collection of goofballs and one with presidential timber.
Sit down and shut-up, loser.
