Jeb! Speaks! Truth!

Right on the money:
  Bush spoke Monday to an audience of several hundred investors in Hollywood at a conference sponsored by the financial firm Noble Capital Markets of Boca Raton. During a speech and onstage interview with author Brant Pinvidic, Bush likened the role of the president to part prime minister, part king.
   He gave Trump good grades on the ministerial side, applauding the appointments of conservative jurists Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh as justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as the strong economy, low unemployment and a reduction in government regulation. “There are a lot of good things going on,” he said.
   The nation, though, still faces serious financial problems, said the two-term former Republican governor.
   “We have trillion-dollar deficits in a growing economy,” he said. “We never envisioned that,” along with unfunded Social Security and Medicare liabilities that will have to be resolved by others.
   “These things are left to be tended to by somebody else and I think that’s malpractice.”As for such "kingly’ duties as setting an example to which younger people can aspire, Bush found the president deficient.
   “The duties say if you can work hard and play by the rules you can be just like him … that’s an ‘F,’” Bush said. “That’s an important part of this, to be admired by someone that you look up to. This president doesn’t achieve that.”
