Jeb Bush to David Gregory: 'You Guys Are Crack Addicts'

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush had a perfect response to David Gregory's question on Sunday's Meet the Press regarding who would be more likely to become president - Marco Rubio or himself.

"Man, you guys are crack addicts," Bush said after a hearty laugh. "You really are obsessed with all this politics" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

DAVID GREGORY, HOST: Governor, before I let you go, who's the hottest Florida politician right now? Is it you or Marco Rubio? Who will we be more likely to see in the White House?

JEB BUSH: [Laughs] Man, you guys are crack addicts. You really are obsessed with all this politics.

GREGORY: You know, I've been called a lot of things.

BUSH: Marco Rubio is a great guy. Okay, heroin addicts, is that better? I mean, put aside the politics for a moment. We've got big challenges, and Marco Rubio to his credit is working on those, and he deserves a lot of credit for it. I'm very proud of him.

Bush was obviously referring to the media who are constantly hounding him about whether or not he's going to run for president in 2016.

He better get used to it, because their - ahem - addiction won't be cured until he gives them a definitive answer.

Stay tuned.
