Daniel Ruth asses Jeb!‘s debate performance and is not impressed. A nugget:
After Wednesday night’s in-the-tank appearance during the latest Republican presidential debate, Jeb disdainfully dismissed the notion that his campaign was wanting. “I’m not a performer,” Bush sniffed, after spending two hours on stage exhibiting all the warmth and charisma of an Easter Island statue.
Bush is wrong, of course. He is indeed a performer in the political theater of the GOP presidential nominating process. He’s just not very good at it.
