Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush took the stage tonight to talk about education, but first he had something “personal” to get off his chest about his brother, President George W. Bush.

Speaking about his family, Bush praised his grandfather, his father, who “served our country honorably.”

“My brother? Well, i love my brother, Bush said to applause. “He is a man of integrity, courage, and honor. and during incredibly challenging times, he kept us safe.”

Sources on the floor report that Jeb Bush’s remarks about his brother were off-script.

“So Mr. President, Mr. President, it is time to stop blaming your predecessor for your failed economic policies!” Bush concluded.
