Snarky Jeb Bush

From the St. Petersburg Times:

"The deal that Bush and several Florida Republicans have endorsed would allow oil rigs 125 miles off the Gulf Coast, beyond sight, and would permit energy companies to negotiate directly with the state Legislature to put drilling operations closer."
Reminded that some want a total prohibition on drilling in the eastern gulf, Bush said: "Sure they do. That's great. I'll talk to the fairy godmother about it."

Bush was dismissive of his critics, including an environmental group and Democrats in the state Legislature.
"I don't know who the League of Conservation Voters are," Bush said... .
Memo to Jeb:"The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is the political voice of the national environmental movement and the only organization devoted full-time to shaping a pro-environment Congress and White House."


Jeb's Fairy Godmother found!
