Who says Jeb Bush cannot compete with Marco Rubio in appealing to those youngsters who are looking for a political champion more appropriate to their generation? Here’s Jeb Bush, Jr., talking to a group of College Republicans about Rubio (per Shane Goldmacher at Politico):

Jeb Bush Jr. told a group of college Republicans in New York on Thursday that Rubio should consider bowing out of the race entirely because of his poor voting record in the Senate. “It’s just, kind of, like, dude, you know, either drop out or do something, but we’re paying you to do something, it ain’t run for president,” Bush Jr. said.

Jebbie Jr. is 31, but he clearly knows how to talk to The Kids, eh?
