TWISTING HIMSELF INTO A PRETZEL
Jeb Bush Comes Full Circle On Iraq Question:
‘I Would Not Have Gone Into Iraq’
In the space of just four days, likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has come full circle on whether he would have made the decision invade Iraq in 2003 as his brother, then President George W. Bush, did.
“If we’re all supposed to answer hypotheticals,” Bush said at a town hall meeting in Tempe, Arizona, today. “I would not, have engaged, I would not have gone into Iraq.”

But over the last few days he has sought to refine that answer.
In an interview on The Sean Hannity radio show on Tuesday he acknowledged: “I interpreted the question wrong, I guess” and added “I don’t know what that decision would have been. That’s a hypothetical.”
And Wednesday, at a town hall meeting in Nevada, he said this: “The problem with hypotheticals is two-fold.
One, when I was governor I got to — I felt it a duty, I didn’t have to — to call all the family members of people who lost their lives and I don’t remember the total number but it was easily over 100.
And I felt it a duty to do that because I admired the sacrifice of their families. And I admired the men and women — mostly men — that made the ultimate sacrifice.
So, going back in time and talking about hypotheticals — what would have happened what could have happened, I think, does a disservice for them.”
But speaking to reporters after the event he hinted at the position he took today: “Of course, given the power of looking back and having that — of course anybody would have made different decisions. There’s no denying that.”
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
Oh, Jeb …. accept it. You have no clue. You are just a mouth piece for those behind you that tell you what to do.
I often wonder … do people like this think that the public has no recall, that we forget things as easily as they retract their statements? And even if we did, don’t they know that today everything is recorded and we can see/hear the interaction to our heart’s delight?
Please, you made a mistake and keep making it worse by attempting to fix it.
Guess Shiite does happen!!
Born and raised by underpaid public school teachers in Sanford, Fla., Andy Marlette graduated from the University of Florida and became staff editorial cartoonist at the Pensacola News Journal in 2007.
Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C.
Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle.
