Jeb Bush, the "smart" brother?


In the CNN interview below, Jeb Bush, George W.’s older brother, admits to an interviewer that, regarding his brother’s new book Decision Points: “I haven’t read it, but I’ve bought 40 copies. And it’s far more important to buy 40 copies than to read it.”

Well, he does show an uncanny understanding of the more cynical side of the book business. Jeb Bush — the one who was previously thought of as the one who was supposed to be president — also adds that he will give the book the classic “Washington Read”: “What I’ll do,” he says, “is go back to the index and look for Bush, Jeb…”

Brothers! Always giving you a hard time…. Watch it here:
