Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush sat down with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl on Sunday for a discussion about the Republican tactics which led to the government shutdown. Bush said that he sympathizes with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) desire to defund the Affordable Care Act, but advised hi m to exercise a bit of self-restraint when it comes to tactics.
Bush began by taking aim at Cruzs tactics. He observed that the GOP actually lost ground with the public over the course of the shutdown and ironically made significantly reforming the ACA that much harder.
Tactically it was a mistake to focus on something that couldnt be achieved, Bush said.

There was a time when I thought that I could vote for Jeb. Now? Hell no.
There is little doubt that this is a concerted, meticulously planned effort by the GOPe to destroy Ted Cruz.
I’ve got a message for Jeb The Bush:
LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER!
Me too. At one time I thought he did a great job as governor of FL and might be good as a president, but that has gone completely out the window. I’ve already told all my friends to beware of Jeb. He’s just another Romney/McCain republican.
Extremism in pursuit of liberty is no vice.
This coming from the guy who awarded Hillary Clinton the liberty medal.
Jeb Bush: Credibility = ZERO.
They can do nothing to him.
I'm loving it. That's why I voted for him.
It is amazing how McCain, Jeb Bush, and the rest of the RINOs are only criticizing REPUBs these days. Not a word about RAT policies trashing the country and hurting people.
The DemocRATS know who their target is.
Go pound sand Jeb.
Conservatives advise Jeb Bush to keep his advice to himself. We’ve waited YEARS for someone with backbone to speak up.
Doesn’t Jeb know it’s over for the Republican party and with amnesty on the horizon will soon join the Whigs in the history books.
Hey Jeb! Just go away, also take Marco and Hillary with her Freedom Medal with you. Perhaps the three of you can rent a room at the Aspen Institute.
In contrast, George P. Bush lauded Cruz's campaign to defund Obamacare. "It's a monstrosity of a law," he said. "In terms of defunding it, that would be one way to reduce and mitigate the impact it's going to have on practicing physicians and hospitals here in Texas," The Dallas News quoted him as saying.
(Need Those T.E.A. Party Votes!
But with Election Day fast approaching, Bush said its probably too late for Republicans to pivot away from the partys conservative base and seize the political high ground on the immigration issue.
I am a pessimist as to the timing right now, said Bush, a co-founder of the Hispanic Republicans of Texas and a fluent Spanish speaker

Once again, my nephews (13 and 11 years old) are smarter than Jeb Bush.
What a DOLT.
Jeb “The Collaborator” Bush just confirms again why he is so useless.
Sort of nails it- that’s EXACTLY what’s wrong with the GOPe- entirely too much restraint in upholding American values, traditions and principles. They have totally lost their way, and are sadly clueless. The GOPe needs to fade away into the graveyard of history.
