That’s what the man said.
Jeb Bush said it last night, when asked about the Oregon shooting and President Obama’s renewed call for legislation to monitor, if not control, access to firearms.
The actual quote, as reported in The New York Times was “Look, stuff happens…. There’s always a crisis, and the impulse is always to do something and it’s not always the right thing to do.”
If it had been GW I’d have assumed that, as with so much else during his administration, the man simply had no clear idea what was happening and was letting Cheney run the country. But Jeb was advertised as the bright, thoughtful, intelligent Bush.
Maybe it’s genetic.
Or maybe, considering the Trump bandwagon, Jeb is just looking for a quick exit.
Stuff happens might do it.
