Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is trying to salvage his campaign following his poor performance at the CNBC GOP debate and falling poll numbers, so he decided to change his campaign slogan to “Jeb Can Fix It.” No, seriously. This is the grand new campaign strategy that Bush and his team are implementing, beginning with a rally tour to drum up support for the former Florida governor’s presidential bid.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter, decided to take Bush’s new slogan to task by testing the limits of its intended meaning, as well as every other possible meaning the social media platform could think of.
Some poked fun specifically at the slogan’s attempt to be a slogan.
Slogans that lost to “Jeb Can Fix It”: – Jeb Can Fox It – Jebgasm! – Return of the Jebi – JEB CAN DO THE STUFF THAT WILL FIX THE THINGS!

The “it” in “Jeb can fix it” apparently does not refer to campaign slogans. — Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) November 2, 2015

“Jeb can fix it” sounds less like an expression of confidence in his governing ability than a desperate plea not to give up on his campaign. — Jim Antle (@jimantle) November 2, 2015
Some pondered what else Bush’s campaign could do with the slogan.
It’s 3:00am in 2027. A pipe bursts in an ad on TV. The homeowner is distraught. A plumber van shows up. The graphic reads: Jeb can fix it.
