Jeb Bush on Disagreeing With Family: 'I Have a Hard Time With That'

The candidate explains his hesitancy to criticize his brother's invasion of Iraq

Bush said those words both at a press gaggle after the town hall where he finally gave his Iraq answer and in a speech to the RNC's spring meeting in Flagstaff Thursday night.

He also said he has a hard time disagreeing with his family in public.

"There's a lot of people out there [in the room] from the press, and there's a lot of interest in finding the ways that we're different and all this," Bush said. "But I'm not going to go out of my way to say that, you know, my brother did this wrong or my dad did this wrong. It's just not gonna happen. I have a hard time with that. I love my family a lot."

Earlier in the day, speaking to reporters after a town-hall-style meeting at a brewery in Tempe, Arizona, Bush also said he would not "go out of my way" to disagree with his brother.

"I am loyal to him," Bush said.
