Fla. Gov. Talks Daughter, Chokes Up

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Jeb Bush choked up on the campaign trail Monday as he asked members of a Pentecostal church to pray for his daughter, Noelle, who is in a drug treatment program.

"Every time I think about my daughter, it's very hard," Bush said after speaking at the Restoration Christian Center. "I appreciate the fact that thousands of people are praying for her and praying for our family. I know there are others out there who are going through similar things."

Noelle Bush, 24, was arrested in January at a Tallahassee pharmacy drive-through window for allegedly trying to buy the anti-anxiety drug Xanax with a fraudulent prescription.

A judge last month found her in contempt of court and sent her to jail for three days after a worker at the center where she was receiving court-ordered drug treatment found her carrying prescription pills.

Bush is unopposed for the Republican nomination for governor. Former Attorney General Janet Reno ( news - web sites) is among Democrats seeking that party's nomination.

Heee haaaw, nice move Jebro, whimpering and sobbing for sympathy votes from the bible-thumping crowd! Keep working on it, you might get an Oscar someday. The reason the poor kid needs anti-anxiety meds is because her parents are both major league assholes. You need to fix the CAUSE of the problem dipshit, not the symptoms.

Prayers sent. God bless you, Noelle.

Dumbya is so dumb it extends to his whole family. I am ashamed to be an American thanks to the disfunctional first family. I will start rooting for the terrorists. Go Hillary.
