Jeb Bush points to the part of his brain where he processes the questions.

Ooh, it’s time for some fighting words! Jeb Bush is willing to face all the tough questions, and Hillary Clinton is not, according to Jeb Bush. He has nothing to say about what actually happens when he tries to answer those questions, let’s just forget about all that, because at least he’s trying, therefore he gives himself an A for effort:

“You can’t script your way to the presidency,” Mr. Bush said of Mrs. Clinton at a stop in Reno on Wednesday.

Fielding questions from residents, Mr. Bush repeatedly mocked Mrs. Clinton for avoiding formats in which she might encounter unexpected questions from potential voters and reporters. Those are the kind of formats, Mr. Bush suggested, that he relishes and seeks out.

Jebbers just loves those situations, when people (say, Megyn Kelly?) ask him a really hard, unexpected question like “Would you invade Iraq like your idiot brother did?” and he gets to shit himself on live television. That’s part of the fun of campaigning! So let’s get up to date on what kinda great questions and answers Jeb Bush has done lately, the kind that Hillary Clinton is too much of a coward to answer.

Jeb Bush did a town hall meeting in Reno on Wednesday (WHERE’S YR TOWN HALL, HILLARY?), and he managed to shoot at least two loads of utter stupid during the course of the event. First of all, he tried to answer that hard “would you invade Iraq?” question again, and it went like this:

“When I was governor, I got to, I felt it a duty … to call all of the family members of people who lost their lives … And I felt a duty to do that because I admired the sacrifice of their families, and I admired the men and women, mostly men, who made the ultimate sacrifice. So, going back in time and talking about hypothetical ‘what would have happened, what could have happened?’, I think, does a disservice for them. What we oughta be focusing on is, what are the lessons learned?

Oh, we shouldn’t talk about it now that Jeb has talked about it all wrong so many times, because it’s rude to the troops his brother sent to die under false pretenses, but we can talk about the “lessons,” though we’re not sure how you talk about “lessons” without talking about “hypotheticals,” but our confusion is clearly because Jeb Bush is far too good at answering questions for us to possibly understand. He says that his brother Dubya fixed everything, though, with the surge, and that we left Iraq all shiny and happy.

Of course, a mean liberal college student at the same town hall meeting decided that it was HER turn to ask a gotcha question:

“It was when 30,000 individuals who were part of the Iraqi military were forced out — they had no employment, they had no income, and they were left with access to all of the same arms and weapons,” [University of Nevada student Ivy] Ziedrich said.

She added: “Your brother created ISIS.”

Mr. Bush interjected. “All right. Is that a question?”

(He knows it is not a question, because her voice didn’t make that question mark sound at the end, and Jeb Bush is good at identifying questions.)

Then Ms. Ziedrich asked: “Why are you saying that ISIS was created by us not having a presence in the Middle East when it’s pointless wars where we send young American men to die for the idea of American exceptionalism? Why are you spouting nationalist rhetoric to get us involved in more wars?”

Mr. Bush replied: “We respectfully disagree. We have a disagreement. When we left Iraq, security had been arranged, Al Qaeda had been taken out. There was a fragile system that could have been brought up to eliminate the sectarian violence.”

He added some things about how the student was “rewriting history” (which you are not supposed to do, see above), and that everything was great until Obama pulled out. Hillary Clinton would have been bad at the question, “your brother created ISIS,” because she would’ve been like “George W. Bush is not my brother.” Way to run from the hard-hitting questions, Hitlery!

One more hard question, and then we’ll go. “How will you be different from your brother?”

“I’m running for president in 2016, and the focus is gonna be about how we—if I run …

Fuck, he wasn’t supposed to say that! Now the surprise, about him running for president, is totally ruint. Oh well. That’s just what happens when you are too good at questions, you occasionally mess up.

      Heck, his brother paid somebody six figures to be the “White House Director of Lessons Learned.”

      I loved this response to that fact:

      WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) released the following statement in advance of delivery on the House floor:

      “Mr. Speaker, yesterday the President said we continue to be wise about how we spend the people’s money.

      “Then why are we paying over $100,000 for a ‘White House Director of Lessons Learned’?

      “Maybe I can save the taxpayers $100,000 by running through a few of the lessons this White House should have learned by now.

      “Lesson 1: When the Army Chief of Staff and the Secretary of State say you are going to war without enough troops, you’re going to war without enough troops.

      “Lesson 2: When 8.8 billion dollars of reconstruction funding disappears from Iraq, and 2 billion dollars disappears from Katrina relief, it’s time to demand a little accountability.

      “Lesson 3: When you’ve ‘turned the corner’ in Iraq more times than Danica Patrick at the Indy 500, it means you are going in circles.

      “Lesson 4: When the national weather service tells you a category 5 hurricane is heading for New Orleans, a category 5 hurricane is heading to New Orleans.

      “I would also ask the President why we’re paying for two ‘Ethics Advisors’ and a ‘Director of Fact Checking.’

      “They must be the only people in Washington who get more vacation time than the President.

      “Maybe the White House could consolidate these positions into a Director of Irony.”

  • Zippy

    THIS! More people need to be saying this over and over. ISIS was created from disaffected Saddam loyalists and has been around since 2006. They received much of their start-up money thanks to our ill conceived bribes of local warlords as part of the Sunni awakening which was the impetus for “the surge” and they’ve been consolidating power ever since. We really need to push back against the bullshit historical revisionism going on about the supposed “end” of the Iraq war. ISIS is being run by a bunch of Ba’athist ex-Iraq military officers who are planning the very same takeover that Saddam orchestrated in 1968 with their coup d’état. This isn’t some spontaneous religious caliphate,those people are just the useful idiots being manipulated by the very power elite that we toppled when we invaded and all they’re doing is trying to restore the government that we destroyed.

    • Me not sure

      It’s the heads of the head cutters that will roll if this bunch takes power. If they are then able to ally with Syrian Sunnis all the better for them. Iran and the Syrian Assad government have a definite interest in seeing none of that happens. The Kurds in Turkey and Iran, can play a waiting game to see if a chance develops for them to unite with their brothers in Iraq and carve out a united independent Kurdistan from of all of this potential chaos. We’ve just begun to see the legacy of Bush’s plan to remake the region and it ain’t going to be pretty.

      • Zippy

        Eggzactly. As soon as the former Ba’athists regain power, they’re going to eliminate the competition and that means offing the true believers doing their heavy lifting for them now. Neither Assad nor Iran want this to happen, which means more intrigue and dirty tricks and likely eventually as flown blown shooting war.

        Meanwhile, Turkey, Iran and Syria are gonna freak out when their considerable Kurd populations ally with the ethnic Iraqi Kurds and try to forge a soft landing spot that will probably straddle several countries.

        OHJB was absolutely right about trying to peacefully manage the very three state solution we’re going to see anyways, only with tons of blood spilled. Except now we have to deal with an emboldened Iran, a dysfunctional Syria that itself needs to be broken up into ethnic regions t try to staunch the blood flow and a nervous Turkey who is going to fight us rather than coughing up part of their country to establish the Kurdish region. Helluva job Dubya- you fucked up that region for decades or longer and guaranteed that the war on terra will continue indefinitely, since far more people hate now than they did before. Thanks Bush, I hope the treasure Halliburton and the oil companies and the dick swinging jollies were worth it.

            I should have been taking notes during ‘Fury Road’ last night.

    • fratdawgg23

      The American military leaders in Iraq kickstarted the sectarian violence intentionally. UK soldiers were arrested by Iraqi police while driving around in a car carrying ready-made bombs while dressed in Arab garb. The Brits used tanks to literally break their guys out of a local jail to avoid explaining a mission that was obviously authorised by the US/UK led military leaders.

      LTC Jim Steele used his experience running Latin American death squads to hire one sect of Iraqis to hunt down the other sect – govt supported death/terror squads were turned loose supposedly to squash the bad, evil terrorists popping up all over Iraq.

      The war was not a “mistake” due to “bad intelligence” – the destruction of Iraq was a premeditated goal.

    “what are the lessons learned?” Is our children learning? No, young master Jeb is not learning at all. Therefore, Megan Kelly asks him is he stupid because everyone knows (except Jeb ) that GOP/TP presidential hopefuls are not to mention war until after they’re elected or at least they should keep it between themselves for now.

    Were I Hillary, I’d respond to them not at all… I’d bide my time. Then one day I’d announce town halls in cities across the country and play back video comprised of all the inhumane, cruel, and bewideringly stupid shit Republicans said about how the Iraq war could use a do-over, and how Iran needs invading, and how Medicare, Social Security, education, and everythng else needs privatizing… and how the federal government needs dismantling, and our pensions need obliterating, and student loans done away with, and the minimum wage axed, and how immigrants can go hang, and blacks need to get used to some 21st century jim crow and women need to get themselves back into the bedroom and the kitchen… maybe throw in a little bit about how rape might be legitimate, and science is voodoo, and how we need to take all the stuff from the working stiffs and hand it over to the billionaires, and how we need to deregulate Wall Street again and throw people off their Obamacare and how we need to turn the country into a Christian version of the Taliban… and so on and so forth. I wouldn’t say a word… except maybe, “No, both sides don’t do it.”

    As one of the founding members and signatories of

    the neocon cabal called PNAC, Jeb was on board with attacking Iraq long before 9/11. The destruction of Iraq was a premeditated goal that was kept in low gear with periodic bombings of civilian infrastructure by Clinton. When Bush was adjudicated president by SCOTUS, the neocons were all set to carry out the PNAC agenda of totally wrecking a secular nationalist Arab country under whatever false pretense gullible, vindictive Americans would tolerate.

    We can’t believe Jeb Bush even if his tongue is notarised.

    “You can’t script your way to the presidency,” Mr. Bush read from his cue cards.

    Jeb will answer any question but one: Are you running for president? If he does, he loses the campaign finance game he’s playing. (Interestingly, none of the MSM outlets accuse him of playing coy by not announcing already.)
