Now He Gets It

Via TPMDC, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush tells Newsmax that he’s not sure Sarah Palin has what it takes to be President.

Though he had some nice things to say about her “charisma,” it was clear that Bush thinks Palin doesn’t have the intellectual heft to occupy the oval office. He said that Palin’s success depends on her willingness to add a “depth of understanding of the complexity of life we’re living in today” to her rhetoric.

“That’s up to her,” he said. “I mean, I don’t know what her deal is, but my belief is in 2010 and 2012, public leaders need to have intellectual curiosity.”

Not to mention a sense of irony.
