Jeb Bush to Defend Brother from Obama's Attacks in RNC Speech

Tired of W. being blamed for everything


Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Thursday he would open his speech to the Republican National Convention with a defense of his brother George because President Barack Obama keeps running him down.

"I just feel compelled to do this because almost every day I hear the current incumbent feeling compelled to push down the past to make himself look better," Bush said on "Fox and Friends" ahead of his Thursday night address. "When I was growing up, we were spanked when that happened."
