Former Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush said that current Gov. Rick Scott has taken a “business-like approach to government” consistent with his campaign message, while devoting less time to the public relations side of the job.

“I think he’s more interested in service. And the politics of politics doesn’t seem to interest him,” said Bush. “God bless him for that. I mean aren’t you tired of politicians that wake up each day kind of sticking their finger in the wind, and saying ‘Ooh, I better not do this?'”

Bush also said he supports efforts by Michael Reagan, the son of the late president Ronald Reagan, to replace California’s full-time legislature with part-time lawmakers, mirroring the system used in Florida and 40 other states.

“I can’t imagine being governor of Florida with a full-time legislature. It would have driven me nuts personally,” he said. “But more importantly, you know, if you have a full-time legislature, the void is filled — and it’s filled with, a lot of times, just nonsensical stuff.”
