In a new 90-second video called, “Why I’m Running, “Jeb Bush is shown displaying a fire in his belly in clips from a town hall meeting where he touts his success in Florida as governor, and blasts Washington D.C. and Barack Obama directly.
“The source of optimism I have is because I know the American people and its ability to innovate, create, to disrupt, its belief in the future,” Bush says in one clip. “There’s no way that Barack Obama or the progressive liberals in Washington can take away the bigness of this place.”
The ad begins with Bush criticizing the D.C. culture, calling it “incompetent” and “in some cases, corrupt,” but says that doesn’t mean it has to be that way (as photos of Obama and Hillary Clinton are shown). He then goes positive and boasts about how he reformed Florida.
“What we have to do is stop saying how angry we are about it, and win the election so we can fix it!,” he says, “it’s not about yapping, it’s not about talking, it’s about doing …”
The ad will reportedly be screened prior to Bush’s appearance tonight at the Scott County Republican Party Ronald Reagan dinner in Bettendorf, Iowa.
