So apparently an internal Bush campaign memo has leaked. He is trying to calm his donors and he says not to worry, their voters have A.D.D.

Internal Memo: Bush Wins Because Voters Have ‘Attention-Deficit Disorder’ | PJ Tatler

A leaked campaign playbook for Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush has revealed a strategy that counts on denigrating rival Marco Rubio and calming donors about their beleaguered candidate’s weak performance on the trail.

Bush’s aides even suggested that voters flit between choices because they suffer from attention deficit disorder, writing that the “race will remain fluid for some time because … voters have ADD”.

It's never good when a candidate on either side of the aisle insults potential voters. Jeb will find that out soon enough.

Jeb! should have fired his nandlers for utter incompetence when it first became apparent they have no imagination and are locked into the middle of the road campaign that resulted in Jeb! getting RunOver!

And then he really needs to bow out. He's over and the damage has been done. ADD won't save him.

I always find it especially offensive when they take and use a serious medical diagnosis as a slam - A.D.D. So many people actually suffer from this.

Jeb needs to get a backbone and pull out of the race. It is time he stood up to his mommy and daddy.

Jeb took the American people for granted. He wanted to sell the past and voters want a future. He was said to be the smarter brother. Most people have seen him enough to realize he's just a different kind of dumb than his brother. He is the typical kind of politician that is committed to his donors not the working middle class people. He will say and do anything to get your vote but didn't realize what he believes in, like common core, is not something people want to buy into.

Jeb no really, voters can make up their own mind, and I would take Rubio over Jeb any day of the week.

Talking about the middle class who in the hell is Killary fooling, she is not for the middle class in the least. She can fool a lot of people except for us with brains that we actually use.

And Jeb is taking voters for granted, something one should never do.

He is still wishing for a McCain miracle. The McCain of 2004 was still popular with the base. Nothing like what Jeb is today. Not next to Trump anyway.

Jeb is even more corrupt than his brother. The ex-Bush cabinet members at fox aren't very happy, especially Karl Rove, but looks like the conservative base has had enough of the Bushes this time around.

Didn't hurt Obama when he was asked why "white blue collar democrats" voted overwhelmingly for Hillary in Pennsylvania's primary and he responded essentially that they were racist rednecks that cling to their Bible and guns, because they are too stupid to know their real problems so they lash out at people that look different.

Then again, media like NPR smoothed it over for him. Speaking of NPR, today one of their analysts said that Bush's problem is that he has a "300 years of WASP problem." Will that same analyst say that about Hillary who is also a WASP?
