If Jeb Bush is like Peyton Manning, then Marco Rubio is Cam Newton



Jeb Bush must be rooting for the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning, after all, maxed out to his campaign last year. And Jeb drafted Manning for his fantasy football team.

"Congrats @JebBush supporter Peyton Manning," Charlie Spies of the Bush super PAC wrote Sunday on Twitter. "Even written off by pundits, Peyton shows experience matters and leads to comeback victory!"

Bush's spokeswoman, Kristy Campell, tweeted a link about the donation (Eli has contributed, too). Jim Merrill, a Rubio staffer in New Hampshire, shot back: "Grateful for the reminder to @Patriots fans in #nhpolitics that Peyton Manning is a Jeb supporter!

If Jeb is like Peyton -- a veteran with a proven record of success -- then Marco Rubio is Cam Newton, young, charismatic and hungry.
