NYT: CONCORD, N.H. – As Jeb Bush has faced questions over Iraq and the policies of his brother throughout recent days, he found one place where there is a policy difference between the two: curtailing spending.

“I think that, in Washington during my brother’s time, Republicans spent too much money,” Mr. Bush said Thursday when asked to describe where there was a “big space” between himself and his brother George W. Bush. “I think he could have used the veto power. He didn’t have line-item veto power, but he could have brought budget discipline to Washington, D.C.”
