Jeb Bush Blows Off Oregon Mass Shooting Deaths by Saying “Stuff Happens”

bush-oregon-shooting

Former Governor Jeb Bush seems to have inherited the same gene as his brother, former President George W. Bush when it comes to fumbling mouth syndrome.

Speaking at a Conservative Leadership Project presidential forum at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, Bush responded to calls for gun control arguing, “Stuff happens.”

Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker tweeted Friday afternoon, “In Greenville, South Carolina, Jeb Bush, arguing against calls for gun control after major tragedy, says, ‘stuff happens.'”

Full context:

And in case anyone thinks he was taken out of context, Bush was asked to follow up on the “stuff happens” and yes, he meant it because “Things happen all of the time.”

Reporter: “Was ‘stuff happens’ a mistake then?”
Bush: “No, it wasn’t a mistake. I said exactly what I said. What would you explain to me what I said wrong.”
Reporter: “Well you said ‘stuff happens’.”
Bush: “Things happen all of the time. Things. Is that better?”

The end.

America has a gun problem that is so out of control, it dwarfs the deaths from terrorism. To this fact, Jeb Bush says, “Stuff happens.”

This is insanity. It makes no sense. There is no justification for this other than being in the pocket of the NRA, which is now more about the gun industry than gun owners.

2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Governor Martin O’Malley was not impressed. He tweeted to Bush, “.@JebBush “stuff happens”? That “stuff” is innocent lives lost. These are preventable tragedies. We must act on gun safety now. -O’M”

Why is it that only Democratic presidential candidates are willing to call out the lack of responsible gun laws in this country?

Where are the moderate Republicans? They must be hiding with the “compassionate conservatives”.

  1. Yes Jeb? stuff DOES happen. BAD Stuff. Like your Brother LYING to get us into war. Then Crashing the World Economy.

  2. Is Jeb taking a chapter from the trump playbook? Say something insanely nuts on Friday to ensure you’re the weekend topic. Free publicity.

  3. Yes. Stuff happens. Like running a campaign that basically ignores his last name in the marketing image that they’re trying to create, to replace the STUFF that HAPPENED the last time we let a Bush live in the White House.

  4. Lie us into war. Over 4000 men and women died. Blew up the mid-east. Wreck the world economy. So yeah, I feel you, stuff happens.

    I guess when your grandfather was fellating Hitler, Prescott said “stuff happens”

  5. These people are sick, degenerate, and depraved. I can’t wait until peasants start overrunning their gated communities and the shooting begins there.

  6. POTUS making excellent observations about JEB!s reaction to the Umpqua shootings and our inaction to them. “Become a single issue voter for a voting cycle or two. Stop electing people who are on the wrong side of this issue.”

    Amen, Mr. President. Amen.

    JEB! – go screw yourself you miserable excuse for slime.

  7. “Stuff” happens!? Guns happen?! Shootings happens!? Really Bush?

    The F-ing NRA is supporting legalized terror and tyranny with guns and Bush says stuff happens. Go back to Florida or where ever.
