Jeb Bush: When in Doubt, Flip Flop. Iraq Invasion.

Jeb Bush: When in Doubt, Flip Flop. Iraq Invasion.
http://www.salon.com/2015/05/11/thanks_s...hird_term/

""With that one-two punch, Adelson showed Jeb that the man he was trying to run away from, in order to prove “I’m my own man,” held the key to his victory (at least with big donors). The Las Vegas mogul and Israel hawk thus took Bush’s biggest political problem – his brother – and made him an asset.
Since then, we’ve enjoyed the spectacle of Bush telling a roomful of wealthy New York donors that on the question of Israel, his top advisor is none other than his brother. “If you want to know who I listen to for advice, it’s him,” he told the donors.""

Him, referring to W.

"“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.""

Jeb was told to distance himself from W. as much as possible, now he's his new idol.

I refuse to admit that I am the only one who looks at that statement and counters that it was his fucking dipshit brother who controlled what the "intelligence" was.  Now, THAT is a scary thought.

I feel the same way. The intelligence was from him or the voices in his head.

I'm sorry, but I watched them explain the "intelligence." I smelled bullshit from the very beginning. We all know the Bush administration pushed to find any link, no matter how tenuous, and to say that everyone would have acted upon it insults my intelligence.

Fortunately for the Jebster, his contstituents are idiots and won't be able to see the sheer stupidity of such an outrageous claim.

Before any of our resident fascist dumbfucks show up, let's not forget:

Quote:(CNN) -- The Bush administration began planning to use U.S. troops to invade Iraq within days after the former Texas governor entered the White House three years ago, former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill told CBS News' 60 Minutes.
