In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash that aired Wednesday, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), a candidate for the 2016 Republican nomination, took a shot at his opponent, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Bush was asked about the possibility that the electorate is seeking a “fresh face” and responded by pointing out he has proven leadership and that Rubio and others had followed his leadership.
“I relied on people like Marco Rubio and many others to follow my leadership,” Bush said.
“We moved the needle,” he said. “We’ve had a president who came in and said the same kind of thing — new and improved, hope and change. And he didn’t have the leadership skills to fix things. In fact, he’s been the greatest, most divisive president in modern history. What we need is someone with proven leadership to fix things and I believe I have those skills.”
