Marco Rubio Can Actually Fill Jeb Bush's Boots: He Can Flub the Answer on Iraq, Too!

It's been suggested that Marco Rubio benefits from Jeb Bush's implosion of the past week. But based on his Fox News Sunday appearance, Rubio's not ready for primetime on such issues, either.

Also please notice how Rubio's justification -- that based on false intelligence, he would have invaded Iraq, too -- relies on the false premise that Bush had "faulty intelligence." Assuming, as I'm willing to do, that Rubio isn't stupid, then he's purposely presenting that false premise in order to justify his view that he would have invaded Iraq and that in any event the world is better off without Saddam Hussein in charge of Iraq.

We aren't, by the way. Think ISIS, for heaven's sake. Rubio is just another lying rube, which we don't need. He may end up the "establishment" candidate, but it won't be because he can handle these questions better than Bush. Okay, marginally better, but still... Sheesh.
