Jeb Bush doesn't think 'good friend' Marco Rubio called him an 'outdated leader'

@PatriciaMazzei

LAKE BUENA VISTA -- Without naming names, Marco Rubio took aim Tuesday at older candidates running for president in 2016. 

"While our economy is transforming, our policies and our leaders are not," the Florida senator said in a video played at a Republican candidate forum. "Our outdated leaders continue to cling to outdated ideas."

Hours later, his one-time mentor, former Gov. Jeb Bush, addressed the same crowd.

Did Bush think Rubio was talking about him being, essentially, too old for the job?

"It's kind of hard to imagine that my good friend Marco would be critical of his good friend Jeb," Bush said.
