Geist: Trump’s 9/11 Comments Brings Jeb Back to ‘Where He Doesn’t Want To Be’

‘It brings Jeb Bush back to the time where he doesn’t want to be’

SCARBOROUGH: “And Willie, it cuts the Republican Party right in half. The Neocons versus the traditional Republicans who have always been about restraint and foreign policy. Certainly we were in the 1990s, and you had people certainly from 2005/2006 on, George Will — whether it’s George Will or — I don’t know — I could name five others. I want to name somebody else before I name myself. But, there were a lot of us that were talking about the military venturism, certainly after 2005 or so. And the party literally was split down the middle.”

GEIST: “It’s criticism from Trump of Jeb Bush that has gotten under the skin of a lot of Bush people. They say he’s pedaling Michael Moore conspiracy theory that George Bush could have done more, that he knew something about it. But there is no denying, yes there were intelligence fail — failures for a decade before you can put a lot of those on Bill Clinton he had a chances to get Osama bin Laden and didn’t get him. But there’s no denying, as Donald Trump has found this weakness, that George Bush was the one in office when 9/11 happened. And when you look back people see that and they hear that and they respond to it. And again, it brings Jeb Bush back to a time where he doesn’t want to be. He would love to get out from under his name and his brother name and start talking about the future”
