W. on Rubio: He’s “Articulate” (what about bright and clean?)

in Uncategorized by

Former President George W. Bush had some pretty non-descript praise for Sen. Marco Rubio Thursday.

“Rubio’s articulate. I met him once, maybe twice. My brother likes him, so I like him,” Bush said, according to the Huffington Post, at his third annual Warrior 100K, a three-day mountain bike ride that he hosts every year. 

The former president also commented on the current immigration reform battles, and cautioned his fellow Republicans to not try and fix the system simply to win votes.

“I think the atmosphere, unlike when I tried it, is better, maybe for the wrong reason,” Bush said. “The right reason is it’s important to reform a broken system. I’m not sure a right reason is that in so doing we win votes. I mean when you do the right thing, I think you win votes, as opposed to doing something that’s the right thing to win votes. Maybe there’s no difference there. It seems like there is to me though.”
