• Laura Ingraham Hits Jeb Bush For Saying He’d Still Support the Iraq War

    Jeb Bush is probably my favorite Republican candidate, even though he hasn’t officially announced his presidential bid.

    Now I know what you’re thinking. “Jerome, have you lost your mind?”

    No, I haven’t.

    I like Jeb Bush only because it’s absolutely hilarious to see him campaign and throw so much support behind a host of issues that put him on the wrong side of conservative Republican primary voters.

    Jeb Bush’s full-throted support for a one-size-fits-all immigration reform bill that creates a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens has turned off a lot of conservatives to his campaign and to his message.

    Jeb’s unabashed support for Common Core has also enraged a big chunk of conservative voters who see Common Core as the usual carrot-and-stick, big government backdoor federal tack over of education in America.

    And now, now, Jeb Bush says knowing what he knows now he’d still support invading Iraq and going to war.

    “Knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the invasion?” Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Bush.”

    “I would have [authorized the invasion],” Bush replied, “and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody. And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.”

    And if that wasn’t enough dirt in the eye of war-weary right-wingers everywhere, Jeb’s got more for you.

    “So just for the news flash to the world, if they’re trying to find places where there’s big space between me and my brother, this might not be one of those,” Bush added.

    So far, Jeb’s plan of running on the wrong side of issues is working . . . if by working you mean hurting his campaign.

    It’s like a never-ending campaign comedy hour. Keep it up, Jeb. It’s working.

    And radio host Laura Ingraham had a lot to say on the matter.  Watch her take on Jeb’s latest gaffe in the video above.
