Jeb Bush Suggests All Black People Want Is ‘Free Stuff’

Jeb Bush needs to get it together.  He was taking questions from the white audience and someone asked about how he plans to get African Americans to vote for him.  Jeb Bush’s response, “Republicans get 4% to 7% of the African American vote. If you double that, you’re at a low number. If you double that you win elections in places like Ohio and Virginia and we should make that case because our message is one of hope and aspiration. It isn’t one of division and get in line and we’ll take care of you with free stuff. Our message is one that’s uplifting that says you can achieve success. We’re on your side”.  Here’s the actual video.

Obviously, the most ironic thing about this is that Jeb’s entire career and wealth were handed to him.  This guy was literally born with a silver spoon in his mouth.  However, unlike everyone else it, I don’t think this is as bad as Romney’s 47% comment.  Trump set the bar so low for the republican party, that this will not be something that ends his campaign.  Moreover, as suggested in the video, Jeb’s comments came off more like he was fumbling around and didn’t know how to close out his answer.  Romney’s comments were smug, condescending, and he believed every word he was saying.  Also, Romney’s comments were directly an attack on African Americans, Jeb’s comments were more of a slap on the democratic leadership.  But, let me know what you think…
