Jeb Bush Jr: Rubio’s Doubts About Age Of The Earth ‘Head-Scratching’ (VIDEO)

Jeb Bush Jr: Rubio’s Doubts About Age Of The Earth ‘Head-Scratching’ (VIDEO)

The son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said Tuesday he's confused by Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) claim that the age of the earth is "one of the great mysteries."

"It was a strange question and I guess kind of a head-scratching type of answer," Jeb Bush, Jr. told CNN. "We've got to be a pro-science and pro-technology party."

Bush, Jr. is on the board of the National Immigration Forum, a group that has urged conservatives and Republicans to drop their opposition to comprehensive immigration reform.

As CNN reported, former Gov. Bush is a "close friend and mentor" to Rubio, who is thought by many to be gearing up for a 2016 presidential bid.

1. This means two things (at least)...

1. Jeb really wants to run in 2016
2. He really wants to knock out the only other potentially Latino-friendly competition well ahead of time.

Heaven help us if US is so stupid to bring in another Bush--even the comparatively "smart one"

2. Jeb always intended a 2016 run - which is why he pushed so hard to get Rubio as Romney VP -

it would make Jeb appear to be pro-Rubio while clearing the 2016 field of someone who he'll need campaigning for him. Looks like he'll now be using George P as his ambassador to Hispanic vote.

4. It's not a mystery. The best minds in the field tell us

that the Flat Earth was created in exactly seven days.
