Fox News' Laura Ingraham Slams Jeb Bush on Iraq War Statement

Remember how Jeb "Jebbie" Bush is supposed to be the "smart brother"?  Especially in comparison to his idiot brother George W. Bush, perhaps among the worse U.S. President in the nation's history.  First Jebbie said that his top adviser on Middle East policy and affairs is, yes you guessed it, his idiot brother.  Now, Jebbie has said that knowing all that we now know, he would still take America to war in Iraq.  The stupidity of the statement is both frightening and chilling given the American lives that were squandered (not to mention the huge number of Iraqi lives) the financial ruin brought down on the nation.  Jebbie's idiocy was too much even for the propagandists at Fox News.  As Talking Points Memo, Laura Ingraham of Fox News went off on Jebbie and slammed him.  Here are highlights:

"You can't still think that going into Iraq, now, as a sane human being, was the right thing to do," Ingraham said on her radio show.

"If you do, there has to be something wrong with you," she added. 

Bush made the remark in an interview set to air Monday night, after Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked him if he would have ordered the invasion of Iraq in 2003, "knowing what we know now." "I would," he said. "And so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody."

This did not fly with Ingraham.

"No Hillary wouldn't!" Ingraham said on Monday. "Hillary wouldn't authorize the war now, if she knew what she knows now."

At one point she began laughing, and doubted that Bush was "his own person" capable of breaking with his brother, President George W. Bush.

The radio host said the exchange did not bode well for Bush if he were to secure the GOP nomination and face off against Clinton and the press.
"You have to have someone who says, look, I'm a Republican but I'm not an idiot! I'm not stupid!" she said. "I learn from the past and I improve myself."

The LAST thing America needs is another Bush in the White House.  The so-called GOP establishment needs to get it collective head out of its ass and make it clear to Jebbie that he is NOT wanted. He needs to go f*ck up something else and leave the country alone.
