Jeb Bush: quit blaming George W. Bush

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says President Barack Obama should stop blaming his brother, former President George W. Bush, for the country's economic woes.

Bush said a real leader would accept responsibility for his own policies.

Bush told the GOP convention Thursday night that his brother is a man of integrity, courage and honor.

The former president is a convention no-show. Republicans aired a short tribute video to George W. Bush, but they have barely mentioned him.

Polls show many voters still blame George W. Bush for the nation's sputtering economy. Democrats have tried to tie GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to Bush, charging that Romney would restore many of the former president's policies if elected.

Jeb Bush left office in 2007 and remains influential in Florida and GOP politics.
