Jeb Bush talks about 2012 presidential race and the seven dwarfs with Sean Hannity



Former Gov. Jeb Bush sat down for an hour-long interview with Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity. It airs Friday (tonight) at 9 p.m. The following are excerpts:

On a 2012 run for president: "I don’t anticipate that, you never say never. This is a standard answer that I’ve kind of learned how to give which is -- you never say never, but I never ruling out being on Dancing with the Stars either."

On why he won't run:  "It relates to my family and a desire to fulfill my duties as a husband and a father which is I think we all have a duty to provide financial security for our families going forward so people don’t believe it but I promise you that’s the reason and it doesn’t mean I’m a hermit or gonna live in a cave… I’m totally engaged in the process you know I may support a candidate I don’t know but I intend to have my voice heard just won’t be with a big megaphone."

On Obama's approval rating: "If you recall my dad in 1992 had a approval rating that was double what President Obama has right now and he was running against the seven dwarfs I think …And one of those dwarfs became President… dwarf,  you know President Clinton."
