Bush's answer, according to the video clip: "Hell, yeah, I would. Look, you gotta step up man."

Bush wryly tweeted on Monday: "Gotta do it," referring to the Huffington Post item.

Bush has recently been publicizing his new book, "Reply All," a collection of stories told through the emails he received as governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007.
