Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, announcing his candidacy for president Monday at Miami-Dade Community College, will portray himself as a problem-solver, vowing to “take Washington – the static capital of this dynamic country – out of the business of causing problems.”

Ahead of his Monday afternoon speech, Bush’s campaign released some lines from his speech:

“We will take command of our future once again in this country.”

“We will lift our sights again, make opportunity common again, get events in the world moving our way again.”

“We will take Washington – the static capital of this dynamic country – out of the business of causing problems.”

“We will get back on the side of free enterprise and free people.”

“I know we can fix this. Because I’ve done it.”

“In any language, my message will be an optimistic one because I am certain that we can make the decades just ahead in America the greatest time ever to be alive in this world.”

“That chance, that hope requires the best that is in us, and I will give it my all.”

“I will campaign as I would serve, going everywhere, speaking to everyone, keeping my word, facing the issues without flinching, and staying true to what I believe.“

“I will take nothing and no one for granted.  I will run with heart. I will run to win. “

“We made Florida number one in job creation and number one in small business creation. 1.3 million new jobs, 4.4 percent growth, higher family income, eight balanced budgets, and tax cuts eight years in a row that saved our people and businesses 19 billion dollars.”

“All this plus a bond upgrade to Triple-A compared to the sorry downgrade of America’s credit in these years. That was the commitment, and that is the record that turned this state around.”

“I also used my veto power to protect our taxpayers from needless spending.”

According to his campaign, a number of family members will be in attendance at his announcement speech, but two people who have been president, his father and brother, won’t.

“Joining Governor Bush for today’s big event are his wife Columba, his children and their spouses and his grandchildren,” a spokeswoman said. “Former First Lady Barbara Bush will also be in attendance today.”
