    "At some point in recent months, members of Jeb Bush’s campaign staff probably sent him a strategy memo, encouraging him not to embrace his brother too closely. Given recent events perhaps the former governor missed the word “not.”

    The Washington Post reported yesterday on the Florida Republican’s latest effort to connect his unannounced candidacy to some of his brother’s most striking failures.

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush would have authorized the 2003 invasion of Iraq, as his brother and then-president George W. Bush did, he told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in an interview to be aired Monday.

    “I would have [authorized the invasion], and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody. And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got,” the likely 2016 presidential contender said.

    To top this off, the unannounced presidential candidate added, “So just for the news flash to the world, if they’re trying to find places where there’s big space between me and my brother, this might not be one of those.”"

    Megyn Kelly asked him if he woulda invaded, knowing what he now knows. He dodged by qualifying, 'if confronted with the intelligence everyone had at the time.' So... that's not what he was asked. His attempt to avoid criticizing Dumbya I guess. Pretty bad attempt.

    His camp is already trying to walk this back; they put a campaign worker out there saying Jebbie told her he'd misheard the question.

    Think of the other shit we could have done with this money

    Reuters:

    The U.S. war in Iraq has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion over the next four decades counting interest, a study released on Thursday said.

    R's typically double down on everything. They think it's 'strength.'

    Cheney hasn't budged, even has the nerve to call Obama the 'worst President of his lifetime' and shit on his foreign policy.

    It's beyond hubris, it's like another realm of existence where you don't actually care about anything at all.

    Everyone and their mother in the government voted to invade Iraq given the info of that time. If we had the knowledge we do now and you would still invade back then? Then you're a moron. But at the time given the climate and the info presented... its why everyone on both sides of the political line voted to invade.

    Yes, Jeb would have invaded Iraq for the same reason his retard brother did. To distract the American public about the gaping, flawed holes about 9/11, and shift focus to a country potentially harboring weapons of mass destruction.

    Let's not try to pretend that the libtards are above the fray. They will tell any audience exactly what they want to hear to get where they want to go. We don't need another Bush in the White House but we sure as hell don't need a Clinton or anyone like the liar in chief Obama.

    I can't frankly take seriously anyone who uses the term 'libtard,' sorry.
