    Jeb Bush said he would be a more fiscally conservative president than his brother as the Republican presidential candidate appeared as a guest on Stephen Colbert's inaugural episode of "The Late Show" Tuesday night.

    Colbert asked Bush to differentiate himself from his brother President George W. Bush, to which the former Florida governor copped to being "younger" and "better looking."

    But when pressed on policy differences Bush critiqued his brother's inability to bring fiscal restraint to Washington.

    Colbert acknowledged that brothers don't always agree politically, introducing as an example his own brother who was sitting in the audience and who confirmed their differing partisan persuasions.
