“Take a hike, man!” said an irritated Jeb! Bush on Saturday, clearly not ready to talk about the exclamation point (!) that has come to follow him around during his bid for president, like a dark, gloomy cloud!

At a campaign event in Bedford, New Hampshire, Yahoo! News asked the Republican presidential candidate a simple enough question: what gives with the “!”? Jeb! was not happy.

How the tune has changed for Jeb! Just last week in Iowa, he was proud to be an exclamation point!
