Iraq

Idiot Quote of the Day

What happened next was obviously Obummer's fault.

"Taking out Saddam Hussein turned out to be a pretty good deal." -Jeb Bush on the Iraq War.

This marks the third day in a row Jeb Bush has openly discussed the Iraq war for reasons that cannot be explained.

This is not a winning issue for anyone, but it's particularly toxic for a man named Bush.

Update... here's video:

    What a brick. And what hubris to believe he could walk into the national spotlight and not be prepared for the most glaringly obvious questions he would be asked. Epic. Fail. Exit the effing stage, Jeb!-boy.

    Bush wants to invade Iraq. That’s the only campaign slogan Dems would ever need.

    But this Bush is so inept that his chances of actually winning the nomination seem slim at this point.

    The Smart Bush Brother, ladies and gentlemen! Give him a big round of … something.

    Oy.

      “The Smart Bush Brother” would seem to be a low hurdle to get over, but Jeb! keeps face planting.

      Jeb! seems to be saddled with a lethal combination of narcissism and naiveté if he thought he could run for president and not have to answer questions that are some variation of “So, your brother. He effed up pretty bad didn’t he?”

        Well, as I’ve said before, being The Smart Bush Brother doesn’t mean he’s smart. We are grading on a generous curve.

        And you’re right, it’s astonishing that Jebbie didn’t think anyone would ask him about Incurious George. His campaign advisers must be drinking Maalox by the gallon.
