TOUGH TO RUN ON DRILLING WHEN GAS IS UNDER $2:

Jeb Bush Attacks Obama Policies, Says GOP Needs 'Hopeful' Message in 2016 (ALEJANDRO LAZO, Jan. 23, 2015, WSJ)

Mr. Bush laid out a series of attacks on the president and Washington, taking on rules laid out by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Dodd-Frank Act, the Affordable Care Act, and the president's foreign policy, among other issues. He referred to politicians in Washington as the "Maytag repairman," saying "nothing gets done."

The former Florida governor--whose father and brother are both former presidents--said the next president has a "duty" to roll back some of Mr. Obama's executive actions both "where the president has gone beyond his constitutional authority," and when he hadn't.

During a question-and-answer session following the address, Mr. Bush described the absence of a high-level American official in Paris following the recent terrorist attacks in that city as "a huge missed opportunity."

He also emphasized "a patriotic energy policy" with cautious regulation of hydraulic fracturing, an "economically-driven" immigration system, and touted his education record in Florida.
