Jeb Bush: His Ass from a Hole in the Ground? Maybe. The War in Iraq? No Way.

I love commanders-in-chief who don't know what you're
talking about, or what he is, for that matter.

Jeb Bush spoke quite clearly when answering Megan Kelly yesterday on Fox News, when he said he loves his brother and the Iraq War. Now it seems he wasn't speaking quite clearly because, I don't know, today is Monday, and it's as good a day as any to explain that he didn't know what he was talking about.

Walk-back Monday, anyone?
"I interpreted the question wrong, I guess. I was talking about given what people knew then, would you have done it? Rather than knowing what we know now. And knowing what we know now, clearly there were mistakes as it related to faulty intelligence in the lead up to the war and the lack of focus on security," Bush told Hannity. "My brother's admitted this. And we have to learn from that."
Bush then pivoted to praise his brother's troop surge in Iraq saying it brought "stability and security to Iraq which was missing during the early days of the United States engagement there."

Yep, stability, security, and all that. Dubya blew up the Middle East, and even Republicans largely believe that. Nice stability you got there, Bushies.

I'm glad that Jeb stabilized his answer.
