Jeb Bush has made a stunning revelation, on the subject of his fall from frontrunner status to the lower tiers in the Republican race: He “hated” being ahead in the first place!
“I feel much better back here,” he explained, as he noted the high expectations that were placed upon him by being both brother and son to two former presidents.
“Being the frontrunner made me feel like other people were gonna being to say, ‘the other guy’s just dancing right through this,'” Jeb said. “I have to go earn it. I have higher expectations on me than people have on me. So it doesn’t bother me a bit that the expectations are high. And I want to win — which means that you garner momentum when it matters, and so I feel good about where we are right now.”
Yes, and we’re sure that all the people who helped donate over $100 million to Jeb’s campaign and/or Super-PAC are just delighted that he’s been able to overcome the burden of being frontrunner. It feels so much better now!
