Marco Rubio is very confused by Chris Wallace’s Iraq questions, which are the same questions Jeb Bush continually fucked up last week, so, as a Serious Heavyweight Presidential Contender, he should have been prepared. However, whereas Jeb Bush’s face would gloss over in confusion every time he tried to answer Iraq questions, Marco Rubio took the entirely different brilliant tack of insisting that the questions were hard, refusing to understand them, and being downright testy about it.

Wallace plays Rubio a clip of him telling the interviewer on “The Five” that it was not a mistake to go into Iraq, because Saddam Hussein was a Mean, but then weeks later, telling another interviewer that, OF COURSE he wouldn’t go in to Iraq, knowing what we know now, that would make him a great big Dumb! This set Rubio up for the gotcha portion of the interview, where he was asked the same exact fucking question, so that he could tie himself up in knots trying to answer:

WALLACE: Senator, isn’t that a flip? Six weeks ago, it made sense to invade Iraq in 2003, now you say it was a mistake.

RUBIO: No, they’re two different questions. It was not a mistake. The president, based on — this is the way the real world works — the president, based on the information that was provided … […]

WALLACE: She was saying “based on the information we know now” …

RUBIO: Well, heh. Based on what we know now, a lot of things, based on what we know now, I wouldn’t have, you know, thought Manny Pacquiao was gonna beat, in that fight a couple weeks ago …

Answers is tough and is not my favorite.Oh good, Marco Rubio knows how the “real world works,” and also understands the concept of sometimes we know things, but other times we don’t know things, which means we will make different decisions based on whether we currently know the things, or don’t. Also, he did not have psychic powers about that fight. This man is PRESIDENTIAL. Moving on:

WALLACE: You were asked the same question, and you said it made sense …

RUBIO: No, it was not the same question. The question was whether it was a mistake, and my answer was, it’s not a mistake. I still say it was not a mistake, because the president was presented with intelligence that said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, it was governed by a man who had committed atrocities in the past with weapons of mass destruction.

WALLACE: But what she asked you was, “was it a mistake to go to war with Iraq?”

RUBIO: It was NOT a mistake, given the fact what the president knew at the time …

WALLACE, SO FUCKING EXASPERATED: No! She didn’t say that, she just said “was it a mistake?”

This goes ON AND ON, with Rubio explaining that two questions are different, because different words are in them, and Wallace just keeps beating his head against the desk, until finally Rubio says, “In hindsight, the world is a better place because Saddam Hussein is not there. But I wouldn’t characterize it as, I don’t understand the question.” FINALLY, he admits that he is dumb! The question, which has four words in it, is simply too hard, and Rubio would rather run around in circles chasing his own dick to avoid having to process the words through his brain and actually give an answer.

Besides, how can a person even know things in the first place? Marco Rubio knows that you cannot know a thing, especially about Iraq, not if you are the president. He adds this brilliant declaration later in the interview: “A president cannot make a decision based on what someone might know in the future!”

All right then. Glad we have cleared that up. We are amazed that Rubio actually managed to fuck it up harder than Jeb Bush, since Rubio wasn’t even trying to avoid calling his own brother a great big bag of dumb salted dicks. This man is GOING PLACES.

      Maybe Rubio can find the door that allows him to exit the stage. W had problems even doing that.

    Marco, let’s face facts here.

    You’re a dipshit. This may play well with the mental micromidgets that are the Faux Noise channel’s bread and butter, but with the vast majority of the electorate, it’s a turn off.

    Stop now before you embarass yourself further. If you’re losing an argument with Chris Fucking Wallace, for the love of Walter Cronkite, you’re toast.

    He should always answer with “I’m not a scientist.” It works every time.

        Just go with “I am not a human”. Covers it all.

        • david green

          Or, “I dunno – I’m not very smart”. That would at least give him points for honesty.

  • sundaytrucker

    I feel nothing but sympathy for Rubio, Bush,…et al. Imagine if you were trying to be the nominee of the Republican Party, every time someone asked you a question you would have to think “What would my dumb-ass constituents say?” and then try and answer from that perspective.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      That does seem to be what both John Ellis and Marco are doing…desperately trying to avoid alienating the microbrains without the slightest care as to how they appear to the multiple synapse crowd

    • FauxAntocles

      I think where they’re getting screwed up is trying to talk to the micro-brains while at the same time being acutely aware that the rest of the world is also listening for a change.

    • Ulricii

      I’m not sure there’s that much distance between their dumb-ass constituents and their dumb-ass selves. So answering might be pretty easy. I used to think the GOP pros were faking it for the bone-heads. Not so sure any more.

      • Zippy

      • sw19womble

        Derp-step

  • Villago Delenda Est

    I still say it was not a mistake, because the president was presented
    with intelligence that said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, it was
    governed by a man who had committed atrocities in the past with weapons
    of mass destruction.

    Yet the “intelligence” that the deserting coward was “presented with” was utterly bogus. That means his entire rationale for going to war was bogus. The “weapons of mass destruction” (which is neocon for “nukes”, and nothing else…not chemical or biological weapons, just nukes) did not ever fucking exist. Period. End of discussion. There was no reliable intelligence that indicated that they did, aside from some warmongers making some up out of whole cloth.

    Which is why, if you have more than two synapses firing, you say it was wrong, given all that we know now, to include the fucked up occupation that was predicted by actual military professionals who were ignored by neocon asswipes.

    • Ulricii

      Minor correction: nukes are weapons of mass destruction when in the hands of countries we don’t like. When we have them, they are “peace keepers.” When the Israelis have them, they are ( ).

      • Villago Delenda Est

        You do of course have a very good point here. The Israelis do not have WMDs, they have ‘defensive’ nuclear weapons.

    The really unfair part of it all is that the ones who should be paying the price for being so criminally stupid (W. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfewicz, et al) have gotten off scot-free and we only get the satisfaction of seeing these current morons tie themselves into knots trying to defend them.

  • Zippy

    In hindsight, the world is a better place because Saddam Hussein is not there

    It is? That would be news to the Iraqis getting butchered by ISIS, news to the families of thousands of dead US soldiers and tens of thousands of disabled ones, news to the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed either by US forces or genocided in the ensuing sectarian violence, the millions of political refugees trying to carve out a new life hundreds of miles from their homes.

    Saddam was indeed a bad person, but that doesn’t mean things couldn’t get a whole lot worse for a whole bunch of people

    • Villago Delenda Est

      You know, I’m reminded how during the occupation it became obvious that what was needed to stabilize Iraq was a secular Sunni strong man.

      Oh, wait…

    • tohu777

      It’s interesting that Rubio’s bothered a bunch by hypotheticals with regard to the invasion of Iraq–but cool with weighing the state of Iraq (an absolutely foreign nation to him) as it is now vs. under a living Saddam Hussein…

    • Spotts1701

      All anyone with any sense of recent history had to do was look at the Balkans. As soon as Tito kicked, everything slowly unraveled because while the Croats, Serbs, Bosnians and ethnic Albanians in Kosovo hated each other, they all were too scared spitless of Tito to do much beyond some skirmishing or isolated incidents. Take him out of the picture, and it’s open season.

      I remember when Sad Dam would send up a plane once a week or so to “test” the No-Fly Zone. He’d throw away a perfectly good jet (and pilot), we’d get some target practice, and the GOP would piss and rant that this meant nuclear armageddon was only a change of wind direction away and when it happened, it’d be all Bill’s fault. Good times.

        and then, when Slick Willie would triangulate and try to do something about it- they’d scream “wag the dog”

  • HogeyeGrex

    To be fair, it wasn’t a mistake. A mistake is unintentional. The invasion of Iraq was the farthest thing from unintentional as you can get. It was a premeditated atrocity that required most of America’s substantial political weight on the crowbar to force into being. No “Whoopsie, my bad” covers destroying a nation and plunging a larger region into lawlessness and violence for a decade with no end in sight. Mistake? Not so much.

    And I, like Rubio, can say I sure as shit wouldn’t have done that.

    Of course, that’s not what this weasel is actually trying to say. He’s just fence-straddling. How’s that barbed wire feel on the taint, Marco?

  • sw19womble

    This is like watching the DNC desperately trying to distance themselves from _their_ President and his actions.

    And going just as marvellously!

    • Zippy

      difference being- the DNC ran from their successes

      • sw19womble

        To be fair, the only alternative for the GOP is to talk about their record on the economy.
        Although, that said, they’ve already tried blaming the build-up to 2008 on the black man, so what the hell give it a go….

        • HogeyeGrex

          I don’t think “Look at how awesome it was last time we had the Oval Office” is going to be much of a winner for these guys regardless of the subject. It’s why the all still worship Reagan. That’s the last time they can point to anything at all positive a Republican President has done, and even that whole administration was an unmitigated cockup. It’s just that the Soviets finally collapsed while he was in office.

          • Zippy

            that, and the bills didn’t start to come due until later when he was long out of office

          • AnOuthouse

            We crushed Granada! We rule!

            Pretty amazing. 5000 medals given out among the 7300 strong invasion force. Not quite everyone got a trophy. And it sure kept that barracks bombing thing out of the news cycle.

          • Zippy

            And it sure kept that barracks bombing thing out of the news cycle.

            that was the entire point- a bright shiny object to distract the rubes while giving Murica a chance to puff up its chest about beating up another country

        • Zippy

          dintcha know? All the sub prime mortgages and credit default swaps and race to sell bad paper that went on between 2003 and 2006 really only happened in 2007 after Nancy and Barney took over in 2007, then everything fell apart in a couple months. If only the GOP had won the 2006 mid-terms eberything would have been peachy. I’ve actually had wingnuts claim that with a straight face…

          • Hardly Ideal

            I got my current job way back in 2007. At the time, there was a bank I’d pass every day with an LED sign board out front. It was always advertising things like “sub-prime loans,” and even then I thought that sounded like a euphemism for “shit-and-garbage burrito,” well before the shit and garbage hit the fan.

  • Virginia Dreaming

    The problem with Rubio’s whole argument is that the intelligence used to justify the invasion of Iraq was generated by the same people who wanted to justify invading Iraq. That is like buying a gun because George Zimmerman tells you that everyone needs one.
    Plus almost any intelligent military leader would tell you that engaging in wars with multiple countries at the same time is not a good idea. Especially wars of occupation.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Yup, you’ve nailed it much more precisely than I tried to…the “intelligence” was made up by people looking for a justification for a war of aggression.

    One think I like about this gotcha question is that Katie Couric is not the one asking it on liberal media. Also, too, given how each person who has answered it thus far has exhibited more pain than if he had stuck his dick in a hornet’s nest, this should be fun when they pose it to Huckabee, Cruz, iCarly and Ben Carson.

    It almost make me want more GOP candidates to throw their hats in the ring.

    Just STFU about “flawed intelligence” already. Enough of the “mistakes were made” BS. I’m so tired of the revisionism going on here. Bush/Cheney didn’t passively receive bad intel- they purposefully and continually massaged, manipulated, cherry picked and distorted the available intel until it was completely unrecognizable from where it started. They went so far as to demand that reports be constantly rewritten to reflect preconceived notions and pre-established conclusions. If the facts didn’t fit, they were either ignored or run through the meat grinder until they did.

    The “how could anyone have known?” meme is complete bullshit. Plenty of people knew- and they were promptly marginalized. Analysts were pulling their hair out when their conclusions were trashed and the administration demanded different conclusions to the existing data. Cheney personally took over the intel gathering and directed it with an iron hand to give the exact results he wanted. Why water board KSM 185 times? Because the first 184 times he didn’t give them the answer that they wanted? The administration completely controlled every aspect of the intelligence gathering process to give them exactly what they wanted- an excuse to go to war in Iraq. Then they took that manipulated intel and turned the flacks loose before a gullible populace and a culpable MSM and used insinuations, weasel words and outright lies to push far past even where the cooked data took things. Mushroom clouds, attacks on American soil at any second? Saddam was an imminent threat? They lied their asses off- then threw the professionals under the bus once it all went wrong.

      Don’t worry, this will be over soon.

    Having been one of the hundreds of thousands who marched through London, and one of hundreds who took part in an impromptu lie-in protest in Oxford Street, the fact that these shallow-minded shit-heels still spew out the lame bullshit about the fake “evidence” being not an integral part of the bigger picture…

    Well FUCK YOU.

    The media in the UK pushed the “45 minutes from WMDs landing in London” horseshit, and enough people believed it.
    Bliar had heard from God (via his Opus Dei advisors) that toppling Saddam was a ‘just cause’, and that the end would justify the means.
    Same old Establishment.

    The Politics of Fear sucks big fat hairy donkey balls, but it works. I’ll admit that I became highly cynical after what I saw first hand (from both an erstwhile Labour government and a fawning media during the Anti-War marches and protests).

    The fact remains that, although Bush and Rubio might become unstuck, some douche-canoe will rise to the top and work out how to answer the question in such a way as to confuse or placate the majority of voters.
    The machine doesn’t care which of these bozos scrapes through, only that one of them does and will promote their agenda. (q.v. Trans Pacific Partnership)

        I gotta say, most of the yahoos these dipsticks are pandering to think Iran is about the size of the next county over.
        I was with the 101st Airborne 1st Brigade in 2/320th Field Artillery in April 1964 on Exercise Delawar [Farsi for “Courageous”], and that country is fukin’ HUGE and sparsely populated and a LOT of the people would resist an invasion because they’re proud of their heritage of the Persian Empire and Darius and Xerxes, and all that.
        Most ‘Murrican idiots don’t consider that countries they want to invade have lots more history beyond the 239 years of the US.
        There’s a saying that in Europe 100 miles is a long way and in the US 100 years is a long time. This country has increasingly been on the way to a bunch of dumb-fucks all my life of 74 years. Most Wonketteers excepted. Wonketeers, enjoy my lawn. All the rest, get the fuck off it.

    It’s funny… I seem to remember people telling the Bush Administration that the “intelligence” they were citing was false and wrong… I seem to remember people objecting to it and pointing out its flaws and protesting the decisions being made on the basis of that “intelligence”… I could swear I remember being one of those people who rather loudly objected to the very obvious rush to invasion…and oddly enough, I seem to remember being spat on by right-wingers and derided and labeled a traitor and anti-American and lectured by those same neocons and right-wingers that it was totes inapprop to “undermine” a sitting president when the stakes were so high.

        Abbott: Now, that’s he first thing you’ve said right.

        Costello: I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!

        Abbott: Don’t get excited. Take it easy.

        Costello: I throw the ball to first base, whoever it is grabs
        the ball, so the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and
        throws it to what. What throws it to I don’t know. I don’t know
        throws it back to tomorrow–a triple play.

        Abbott: Yeah, it could be.

        Costello: Another guy gets up and it’s a long ball to center.

        Abbott: Because.

        Costello: Why? I don’t know. And I don’t care.

        Actually, it’s worse than that. You left out “anti-qualified,” which goes beyond not having the needed qualifications into the realm of having attributes that strongly suggest one should not hold elected office. Bush 2 and Marion Barry are two excellent examples of the voters knowing but not caring about anti-qualifications.

  • Walter Wellstone

    Here’s what I find interesting: what is Fox News doing questioning the “wisdom” of invading Iraq? I thought that was settled scripture at Fox: Dick Cheney said we should invade and that’s that. What is Wallace doing to the candidates? Isn’t he supposed to be asking questions such as “Elvis or Johnny Cash?” or “What is your favorite David Duke book” This is alarming.

    They all sound very Palinesque, which is not surprising. Hey, she is not that bad after all!

    • Treg Brown

      Yeah she is.

      If the Tundra Twit is the high bar for the Republican candidates, then that makes everything easier for President-Elect Clinton.

      The very voters the Republicans seek to lure to their side are infinitely more educated on world matters than any of the clown car occupants. The younger voters are not passive Fox News watchers ….

    Hey, he wasn’t sweating — so that’s basically a win.

    I’m waiting to see how Rubio does in the swimsuit competition.

  • toomanyrappers

    The sad thing is, I can’t tell anyone I know “I told you so”. They refuse to talk about it now and do the same kind dumb sh*t that that Jeb and Rubio have been doing.

    But, FWIW: let’s all get together and say it one damn time. ;)

    “I TOLD YOU SO!”

    Stick with, ‘I’m not a scientist’, it would work about as well, and is factual.

    • Alex Grey

      About right…

  • Ryan Denniston

    Scientists know things right? He ain’t a scientist man!

    Much as I respect Wonkette’s nonexistent commenters, I have to note that David Brooks says that Marco Rubio is “talented” and “has the best stuff” and is “most talented politician in the race.” I have to assume, contrary to all the evidence, that David Brooks is right.

    • NorthStarSpanx

      That’s about as helpful as Rush Limbaugh calling Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue, “truly one of the most substantive policy books I’ve read.”

      • Mehmeisterjr

        When Rush uses the word “truly,” you know you are in for some serious bullshit.

        Incidentally, is there any chance that Rush could be the Vice Presidential candidate. I would love to see the bumper stickers:

        “Chris Christie/Jeff Christie 2016!”

        • Alex Grey

          Nah, Rush is toxic goods, that’s why he is being dropped left and right by advertisers and radio stations…

    heh, who doesn’t enjoy gawking at freakshows? Bring on the debates!

    Aww give the guy a break. Question-Dodging and Subject-Changing are fine art forms… the guy just needs a little practice to master his technique. Meanwhile, the rest of us are snickering our asses off at the prospect of this person becoming our real-live Commander in Chief, all the while shuddering at the thought. …He fumbles his way around like a 12 year old. Painfully awkward. Actually: Great choice, GOP!

    it was the intelligence that got us do it – intelligence? what intelligence? oh faulty intelligence you say. well even if you are a complete moron you can at least use the word without having any intelligence yourself.

  • Gleem-McShinez

    “Knowing what we know now”
    Funny thing about that! People also knew some things back then, like “this isn’t even close to a good idea” and “let the inspectors finish their jobs,” and “Iraq has jack shit to do with 9/11.”

    But sure, let’s imagine NONE of that was available “back then.”

  • SecludedCompound

    Wait, we can’t say that the world is a fundamentally WORSE place since Saddam Hussein is gone? If we’re going to operate by the Utilitarian standard here, fucking ISIS and Al-Qaeda n Irag alone killed more people than him not to mention…oh…who was it… the USA that killed so many more people than Saddam?

    Jesus. These idiots are enough to turn me into me back into a completely incredulous 20-something year old, I guess.

  • Zhu Bajie

    The intelligence wasn’t faulty. It was faked to suit the fantasies of Bush/Cheney. Lets call it stupidity!

  • Smibo

    Here Marco, let me FIFY, bro:

    …the president was presented with intelligence that said had ordered intelligence to conclude that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, it was governed by a man who had committed atrocities in the past with weapons of mass destruction (which we still have the receipts for. Thanks, Ronnie!)

    There. Does that help you come up with an answer to the “was it a mistake” question?

    (Hint: the correct answer is “No, it wasn’t a mistake, it was intentional. Also, too, it was a WAR CRIME”. Granted, that may not be the winning-est quote in a Republican primary, but trust me, it’d be a game-changer in the General.)
