Jeb Bush is ready to pucker up! The GOP candidate offered an interesting suggestion at the third republican debate to any democrats who support budget cuts: step forward, and receive one free kiss from Jeb!
Jeb Bush shared an interesting, and intimate, offer to democrats during the third Republican presidential debate on October 28: agree to budget cuts, and prepare for some wet, sloppy kisses! Please, allow Jeb to explain this platform further!
“Find me a Democrat that will cut $10 and I’ll give them a warm kiss,” Jeb stated during the GOP debate. He had been presented with a hypothetical situation, in which Democrats would agree to slash $10 in spending for every $1 in tax increases.
It was an awkward joke that fell flat, much to the confusion and delight of spectators at home, but it was a testament to how deeply Jeb feels about the need for both Democrats and Republicans to figure out where they’re headed on the federal budget, together. If only Jeb didn’t invoke the image of each and every Democrat getting a huge smooch from the candidate to get his point across!
Jeb was angry that a spending cut/tax increase scenario happened before, without any Republicans getting benefits. “Barack Obama got his massive tax increase and there were no cuts,” Jeb said. Unfortunately, Jeb didn’t remember the series of budget cuts (sequestration) that happened in 2011. Whoops! Time to start talking about kissing!
Jeb sincerely pledged that he would speak to Democrats who were willing to cut spending if he were elected president. Hands off, no kissing or anything! We have a feeling that this presidency would be very friendly!
