Jeb Bush: Obama Handling of Ebola 'Incompetent'

Tuesday, 28 October 2014 10:17 PM

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is criticizing President Barack Obama's initial handling of the Ebola crisis as "incompetent," saying it gave rise to unneeded fears among the American public about the virus.

Bush is the latest potential Republican presidential candidate to attack the president over Ebola. During an appearance at Vanderbilt University in Nashville on Tuesday, he also said he supports travel restrictions for people who have been to the most severely affected countries in Africa.

Bush contrasted what he characterized as the president's indecisive approach on Ebola to his own actions as governor when anthrax was mailed to a supermarket tabloid in Florida after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

Bush ended the wide-ranging talk by saying he's not "freaking out" about whether to run for president.
