Bush accuses Rubio and Cruz of being 'all talk' on Syria



In an new video, Jeb Bush criticizes Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz for not supporting military action against Syria.

At the time attacks were being considered, many members of Congress were wary of supporting them. And in September 2013, Rubio voted against an authorization measure, a vote some saw as Rubio trying to adapt to the less interventionist mood among Republicans at the time. The rise of the Islamic State and continued trouble abroad has swung the GOP back to its traditional stance and Rubio espouses one of the most hawkish views.

Bush wasn't vocal in 2013, however, as a BuzzFeed reporter points out. We've asked his campaign for examples.
