Bush Calls For Tougher Action Against ISIS

Dec 1, 2015

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is in Iowa trying to gain some momentum in his bid for the Republican Presidential nomination.

He told a gathering at the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum in Waterloo Tuesday that he disagrees with President Obama’s statement this year that climate change is a major issue affecting nearly every American sector.

“The idea that 99-percent of scientists believe that this is all decided is just not true,” he said. “It’s true that the climate changing, but that’s not a Captain Brilliant comment, it’s a Captain Obvious comment.”

Bush also says in light of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, the Islamic State, or ISIS, must not be contained; it must be destroyed.  He says the U.S. must change its current military policy and fight the organization.

“All of their policies revolve around something they think doesn’t exist, well it does exist,” Bush says.  “We need a leader to be able to destroy ISIS, not contain ISIS.”

The most recent Quinnipiac University poll of likely Republican Iowa caucus goers shows Bush with just 5 percent support among likely Republican caucus participants.
