During a speech Wednesday, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tried to separate himself from the two men who made Bush a household name and who also made some highly criticized foreign policy decisions.
Jeb Bush's political action committee, Right to Rise, pre-released his remarks for Wednesday's speech in front of the Chicago Council on Foreign Affairs. Bush said: "I love my father and my brother. I admire their service to the nation and the difficult decisions they had to make. But I am my own man – and my views are shaped by my own thinking and own experiences."
As many outlets have alluded to, the Bush legacy is one of the most important hurdles for Jeb Bush to clear if he wants a chance at the White House in 2016.
