• Media Question GOP Candidates Over Iraq and Ignore Hillary Who Voted For the War

    Last week, Jeb Bush took a beating from the press for saying that knowing what he knows now, that he’d still invade Iraq.

    Sunday, Florida Senator and Republican president contender Marco Rubio was hit with a similar line of questions by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.

    “It was not a mistake for the president to have invaded Iraq based on the intelligence he was presented,” Rubio said regurgitating Jeb Bush’s earlier gaffe on the subject.

    “Presidents don’t have the benefit of hindsight,” Rubio added. “You have to make difficult decisions based on the information that’s before you at that moment.”

    The Jeb Bush narrative is interesting because it was his brother, George, who was president and who launched the Iraq war. But beyond that, the question is rather pointless. Jeb Bush was the governor of Florida at the time. It’s trivial and useless to ask him what he’d do differently 15 years later.

    Similarly, Rubio is a Senator but he was in the Florida legislature in 2003. What’s the point of asking him what he’d do in 2003 knowing what he knows about the Iraq war in 2015? It’s beyond stupid.

    Once again, the media are missing the point and a perfect opportunity: ASK HILLARY CLINTON THIS DUMB QUESTION BECAUSE SHE ACTUALLY VOTED TO INVADE IRAQ IN 2003.

    Thankfully I’m not the only person thinking this:

    Now if we could just get a few of these idiots in the media to shove the microphone in Hillary’s face and ask her the same question, that’d be great.
