Jeb Bush's son slams Charlie Crist

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

George P. Bush, son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, spoke to the Young Republican National Federation, and had some choice words for the current governor:

"There's some in our party that want to assume that government is the answer to all of our problems. I'm not going to name any names. You know who I'm talking about. That's problematic. We as conservatives have to ultimately balance the federal government's checkbook."

After the speech, Bush was very much in the mood of naming names, claiming Charlie Crist's appearance with Obama would come back to haunt him:

"That will be on his track record and people are going to remember that. There are numerous actions that I have seen legislatively that do not speak to a strong conservative, it speaks more to a moderate. That's fine, but when you run as a conservative and then you lead as a moderate, that's one thing that any leader would have to reconcile."
