'Jeb Can Fix It': Bush Relaunches Campaign With New Slogan
Jeb Bush is trying a new slogan as he relaunches his presidential campaign.
The GOP candidate kicked off the “Jeb Can Fix It” tour, speaking at a grassroots rally in Tampa, Fla.
“After seven years of incompetence, corruption and gridlock in Washington, we need a president who can fix it,” said Bush. “I can fix it."
The slogan quickly started trending on Twitter, but the early reviews from voters and pundits have been less than promising.
Donald Trump also jumped in, deriding the former Florida governor's new attempt to find momentum in his bid for the White House.
Jeb's new slogan - "Jeb can fix it". I never thought of Jeb as a crook! Stupid message, the word "fix" is not a good one to use in politics!

"Jeb can fix it" sounds less like an expression of confidence in his governing ability than a desperate plea not to give up on his campaign.

I don't want to pile on, but "Jeb Can Fix It" may be literally the worst slogan I've ever heard

"Special Report" host Bret Baier reacted this morning on "Happening Now" (video above) to Bush's campaign reset and to the feud between Bush and Marco Rubio on the senator's missed votes.
He said that Bush is now on version "3.0" of his presidential campaign, as he continues to lag behind in the polls.
"There is a subtext. Many people say [Jeb Can Fix It] might also apply to the campaign," said Baier.
Let us know your thoughts on the new slogan, plus hear from Bush tonight at 7p ET on "On The Record."
