Presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he once got an email asking if he would go back in time, if it were possible, and kill the baby Adolf Hitler.
Bush told the story to a Huffington Post reporter on the Bush campaign bus in New Hampshire last week.
Bush’s answer, according to the video clip: “Hell, yeah, I would. Look, you gotta step up man.”
Bush wryly tweeted Monday: “Gotta do it,” referring to the Huffington Post item.
The typically dry-humored Bush, labeled by rival Donald Trump as “low energy,” has shown a more carefree side lately.
Bush has recently been publicizing his new book, “Reply All,” a collection of stories told through the emails he received as governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007.
Bush shared with reporters during the recent New Hampshire trip other odd emails he’d received, including one from a University of Wyoming email address asking Bush to help him find some toilet paper.
“Funny person,” Bush said, recalling the email.

Bush would do ANYTHING to protect the Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan and Soros families, the Rothschild started WWII as well as every war America has been in for the last 150 years. Of course Bush is stand up for the Elitist! Semper Fi.
Baby Hitler was brought up by people that taught him to hate, it should be his parents that needed to be removed.
Rev. Tom Chopp says
Baby Hitler was raised in a theological liberal and anti-Jewish culture during the depression years and lived in post world war I Germany. He was fed a steadily diet of pro-German propaganda from his earliest days and a spiritually dead church. Personally, I Jeb Bush needs to deal with our own reality in the USA, we too are becoming spiritually dead, greedy, and due to Obama’s government more prejudice and racist. Our educationally system is radical amoral liberal and pro-socialistic.
Vic Bailey says
You all forget that the Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan and Soros families have killed more people than all the Rogue leaders put together by depressions, recessions and stealing from all countries of the world, they are a bunch of scam artist that need eradicated from mother earth! Semper Fi.

There’s a lot of people society might want to kill if they knew what the person would become. The problem is no one knows what a baby will become. Every day Planned Parenthood slaughters a large number of babies. We don’t know what those babies would have become if they had lived. We don’t know what medical cures they would have discovered, what problems they would have solved or devices they would have invented. All we know is the baby was slaughtered and the abortion clinics got a lot of money for carrying out the killing.
And how many Einstein’s did they murder? Did they give any thought to that fact? NO Is that murder for hire of the innocent where did their morals go? There are no morals in GREED of the all mighty dollar for some.Here have some more pills , Oh your only taking 6 other prescriptions here is 10 more and call me ! How many people have to die over money for doctors orders. The system is corrupt and headed to the junk yard. Here is what gets me is everone you ask ( who did you vote for in the last election and they are all saying everything but Obama ,so HOW the HELL did that POS get elected??????????????????????????? HOW many of you are telling a LIE? What? just because you pealed the Obama sticker off your car doesn’t unstain nor forgive your treacherous will on our country.Not once but twice branded our nation with lawless intervention in foreign affairs and our own citizens.I have voted time and time again ending in disappointment of both parties ! no more insiders, no more lies, This country is sick ! I am sick of the Bullshit from this transparent government that is nothing short of a coverup daily disgusting spending practices for the last 20 years. By the looks of things today the way our government is destroying our way of life these are the Good OLE Days,Enjoy it . Happy Veterans Day.

How can you kill “Baby Hitler” when no one knows whom or what type of person that baby will grow up to become? Even though it was a hypothetical question, in my opinion it was a stupid question with an even stupider answer from Jeb. Much more interesting, from my point of view, is how much different 20th century history would have been, had the British soldier during World War I who drew down on Herr Hitler had elected to pull the trigger and off the unknown German soldier, rather than not pulling the trigger and letting him go, which was what he did.
