GOP’s Bush Noting Difference With Former President Brother
CHICAGO (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush plans to note he is different from his former president brother George W. Bush in a Chicago speech about U.S. foreign policy.
In excerpts released ahead of the midday speech, Bush answers a question he faces repeatedly in closed-door fundraisers as he marches toward an increasingly likely 2016 Republican presidential bid: What makes you different from your former president father and, more recently, brother, George W. Bush?
Bush says he's "lucky" to have a father, George H. W. Bush, and brother who have shaped America's foreign policy from the Oval Office, but recognizes that "my views will often be held up in comparison to theirs."
But Bush says he's his "own man," and that his views are shaped by his own thinking and experiences.
