first of all, he has the right to wear the shirt if he wants. Getting in trouble is ridiculous. No doubt about that. The story I list below was more dangerous because Jeb Bush was present at the time! Luckily, the person was treated better.
I saw this same shirt on a college student here at the university. Governer Jeb Bush of Florida was here for a dedication of a medical research building. Students excercised their right to protest, which I wholeheartedly support. One of them was wearing the exact same shirt.
Regardless on your political views, I think you have to be ashamed for this:
After his protest (screaming loudly "Bush is for sale" and other comments) he was asked to leave the immediate area (not arrested, attacked, shoved or anything like that, just escorted...). As soon as the speech was over, this HYPOCRITE comes back up to the presentation area and has the audacity to eat the free food and drinks that were provided.
It was a funny move, but he lost all credibility in my eyes. I guess he will only stand up and speak his mind until he can easily change his mind with something as simple as a finger sandwich. A true definition of a "sellout", but with a surprisingly low price.
