His brother, George W. Bush, is a man of "integrity, courage, and honor, and during incredibly challenging times, he kept us say safe," the onetime governor said of the 43rd president of the United States.
"So, Mr. President, it is time to stop blaming your predecessor for your failed economic policies," Bush said as a crowd broke out into cheers and applause at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Fla.
He acknowledged Obama was "dealt a tough hand."
"But your policies have not worked," Bush said. "In the fourth year of your presidency, a real leader would accept responsibility for his actions, and you haven't done it."
"Now that I've gotten that off my chest," Bush segued, "let's talk a little bit about our kids and education."
