As former Gov. Jeb Bush gets ready to tour our state in his campaign for the presidency, a Twitter campaign has backfired in the most Jeb! way possible. In a attempt to bullrush his way back to the top of the polls and voters' imaginations, Jeb has launched a "Jeb Can Fix It!" campaign meant to let people know what a handyman for America Jeb! can be.

But, with yet more proof that Jeb Bush is the Charlie Brown of the GOP candidates, Twitter trolls have hijacked the slogan and are making with the jokes.

Today was supposed to be the first day of the "Jeb Can Fix It" campaign, with the former governor's team asking all of Twitter to tweet out the biggest problems facing America with the hashtag #JebCanFixIt.

Things have not gone according to plan.

Here are some of the gems inspired by the slogan:

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
