George W. Bush: 'Who the hell is Marco Rubio?'



WINK News: NAPLES, FL. -- Former President George W. Bush and his brother, former Gov. Jeb Bush spent the evening at the Naples Grande in Collier County. The brothers shared their thoughts on many political topics, although not always sharing the same philosophies. ... Most notably the Bush brothers disagreed on the Senate race between Marco Rubio and Charlie Crist. Jeb Bush says he is officially neutral, but is disappointed in Crist's embrace of the stimulus bill. George W. Bush joked "who the hell is Marco Rubio," something that even caught the attention of this high schooler.

Something sounds like it was lost in translation there. Hard to see President Bush backing a governor who wouldn't even appear with him in the Panhandle. Karl Rove, remember, is a Rubio supporter, and saying Who's Rubio? is not saying I Back Charlie.
