Scott Walker Says He Didn't Intentionally Insult Jeb Bush

As potential candidates get closer to announcing their intention to run for the White House, things are getting testy between front runners. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker denied allegations that he was talking about former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush when he said, "unlike some out there, I didn't inherit fame or fortune from my family." Walker made the remark at a Christian media convention on Monday night.

Yet, in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Walker said he was making a general statement--he was not specifically addressing his comment to Jeb Bush who is the son of former President George H.W. Bush and the brother of former President George W. Bush. Walker then explained it more clearly, "People have heard me talk about my narrative for years, long before there was even a thought of potentially running for office at this level. What I got from my parents and my grandparents was the belief that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can do anything you want." Van Susteren asked Walker if that was a slap at Gov. Bush, Walker replied, "No. I've talked about that for years."
