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



EVAN MCMORRIS-SANTORO 12:00 PM EST, TUESDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2012

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.

2. Jeb sr. is running in 2016. Rubio is a diversion(and Jeb can't w/o losing Florida) pick Rubio as VP

 

Jeb also is not just a friend and mentor, but more like, ahem, The Godfather to him.

3. There shouldn't be any confusion..

It says clearly in the Bible that the Earth was created on October 23, 4004 BC. Oh, wait, no it doesn't. Never mind.

5. The Bushes are looking to create/consolidate a Moderate Republican Party...the Tea Party is painful

history. Obama's win will drag them somewhat to the left just as 2010 dragged the Democrats to the right. I believe the Tea Party will be held at least somewhat accountable for dragging poor Mitt so far to the right, he couldn't "right the ship"...ignoring the fact that he's an idiot.

6. Absolutely and while I think a shift is better for the country in general...

The involvement of the Bush family is quite dangerous.
