On Sunday’s Meet The Press, Jeb Bush spoke with Chuck Todd about his campaign and addressed his lackluster performance at last week’s GOP debate.
Asked if he had re-watched the debate, he said he hadn’t but admitted that he needed to improve his performance during his party’s primary debates:
“I know I gotta get better at doing the debate,” Bush said. “I’m a grinder. I mean, when I see that I’m not doing something well then I reset and I get better, and I’m going to get better.”
“This is not debating. I mean, whatever it’s called, it’s not debating. Because I can complete a sentence in the English language pretty well, and I have ideas that can lift people up.”
Bush’s remark about his ability to “complete a sentence in the English language” is notable given the frequent criticism his brother received during his tenure as President for what many perceived as his bungling of the “English language.”
