Gotta give Jeb credit for being straight with us. But then, we've known that he's been doing that- to his cost- for a while now.

The trouble is that I'm not sure we want our leaders to be straight with us. We penalize that. We reward them for telling us what we want to hear.

In any case- right or wrong- saying this was not the best of tactics for the Jebmeister.
