Jeb Bush Super PAC Says $10M+ Iowa Ad Budget "Too Small" to Make Jeb Likable

DES MOINES, IOWA (The Nil Admirari) - A senior official with Jeb Bush's Super PAC "Right to Rise USA" told TNA on the condition of anonymity today the $10 million-plus ad budget it had to make Jeb likable to Iowa's Republican caucus-goers was "way, way, way, way, too small." The Super PAC official added, "Jeb needs to stop hugging his brother George W. Bush's policies whenever he is asked about them, because that is not helping."


"Jeb is already struggling in a crowded Republican field that includes Donald Trump, who is really busting our balls on some of Jeb's flubs like the one he said about cutting back on women's health funding. So when Jeb says things like that or says he is in favor of torture and wants to put troops back on the ground in Iraq as soon as possible, those are all examples of 'not helping,'" explained the high-level Super PAC official.

The Right to Rise USA source continued, "Telling everyone he would have attacked Iraq knowing what we know now, namely that it was an expensive and deadly mistake based on lies, is another example of 'not helping' both in the presidential race and in advancing our general narrative that he is 'the smart brother.'"

"I swear, I will quit if he says Iraq was a "good deal" again. He can destroy his own political future and make it so no amount of money can ever clean the George W. Bush off of him, and he's getting close," warned the Right to Rise USA official.

"Of course, we think Republicans in Iowa are going to love Jeb Bush if he can keep his mouth from saying stupid things and we quadruple the current budget," stated the high-level Super PAC source.
