Jeb begs ABC News to accept that he will not be VP candidate

in Uncategorized by

Former Gov. Jeb Bush practically begged ABC News (via the Political Wire) to accept that he will not be a candidate for vice president.

Said Bush: “It’s not in the cards for me. I don’t know how many times I have to repeat this. I have been repeating it for the last two years. I’ve been pretty consistent.”

When pressed, he repeated again: “I am not a candidate. I’m not going to be asked.”

Of course, the reason he keeps getting asked the question is that he said in April that he would “consider it.”
