Jeb Bush says Marco Rubio followed his lead



Jeb Bush today painted Marco Rubio as one of his disciples as he sees Rubio overtake him in the polls.

"I'm a proven leader," Bush told CNN's Dana Bash in New Hampshire. "I disrupted the old order in Tallahassee. I relied on people like Marco Rubio and many others to follow my leadership and we moved the needle."

Bush also knocked Rubio's message of turning the page.

"Look we had a president who came in and said the same kind of thing -- new and improved, hope and change -- and he didn't have the leadership skills to fix things," Bush said.
