Jeb Bush and Barack Obama agree on one thing about Marco Rubio



President Obama and Jeb Bush agree: Marco Rubio has hightailed it away from the Gang of 8 immigration bill he helped write.

"You've got a candidate who sponsored a bill -- that I supported -- to finally solve the immigration problem, and he's running away from it as fast as he can," Obama said during a news conference Tuesday in California, in which he criticized Republican presidential candidates.

Bush has said Rubio "cut and run" when things got tough on the bill. Rubio now calls for a border-first piecemeal approach.
