More War in Iraq
Bush then made an odd point: “The best way to lessen the chance of having American boots on the ground is to have a foreign policy that is strong and secure and consistent.”

Raise Social Security Retirement Age
“I think we need to raise the retirement age, not for people that are already nearing, receiving Social Security, or already on it, but raise it gradually, over a long period of time for people that are just entering the system,” Bush said. “And I think we need to do that in relatively short order.”

Tax Cuts for the Wealthy
Other Republican candidates who are more conservative than Bush — like Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky (who favor a flat tax) — may also want to highlight his tax relief for rich investors. They will want to portray the current front-runner as a country-club Republican who is only catering to more ideologically pure conservatives until the primaries are over.

Eliminate the Minimum Wage
“We need to leave it to the private sector,” he responded. “I think state minimum wages are fine. The federal government shouldn’t be doing this.” He went on, “The federal government doing this will make it harder and harder for the first rung of the ladder to be reached, particularly for young people, particularly for people that have less education.”

Denies Climate Change
“For the people to say the science is decided on this is really arrogant, to be honest with you,” he reportedly said. “It’s this intellectual arrogance that now you can’t have a conversation about it, even.”

The "Best" In The Business
Jeb W. Bush is stuck in the shadow of his brother's legacy... and that's right where he wants to be.
"It’s clearly on people’s minds—even W’s. The former president (and my former boss) had an interesting exchange Wednesday with an audience in Chicago. Asked about his brother Jeb’s candidacy for president, his answer was quintessential W: 'He has got a problem: me.'"
In an interview with the Washington Examiner Coburn said, "I think there's Bush fatigue and I think you automatically lose a large percentage of the electorate." He explained, "I like Jeb Bush. But the fact is his last name will kill 47 percent of the votes for him — potential votes in this country. That's a big deal to get over."
During a stop in Tennessee, Jeb Bush sat down with "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer, who asked about the possible presidential candidate's relationship with his brother and the potential stumbling blocks it could cause in his own campaign. When asked if he believed his brother was his main challenge, Bush told CBS News: "No, I don't."
