Yes, he's that dumb

Jeb Bush has dreamed of being president since, oh, the last century. His dumb big brother got to skip ahead of him (UNFAIR, Dad), but now it is finally Jeb’s turn. So given his decades of dreaming and scheming and preparationing, you’d think he would know how to answer the most obvious question he will be asked during his not-yet-official campaign: Are you a fucking idiot just like your brother?

Yes. Yes he is.

Jeb stopped by Fox News — the cable news network that was the official sponsor of the George Dubya Bush presidency — for a quick friendly chat about how Jeb supposedly wants to be president, though he seems to be trying real hard to make sure that doesn’t happen. And he was asked a simple yes-or-no layup question about Iraq that every single moron in America, including Jeb’s own brother, knows how to answer: “KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW NOW, would you have authorized the invasion?”

And he sharted all over himself anyway. Given nearly 24 hours to go to his room and think about how saying “Yes, KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW NOW, I would totally full on invade Iraq all over again, Jeb for president!” is the WRONG FUCKING ANSWER, Jeb was given a second chance by, of course, another Fox personality, Sean Hannity, on the radio:

“I interpreted the question wrong, I guess. I was talking about given what people knew then, would you have done it? Rather than knowing what we know now. And knowing what we know now, clearly there were mistakes as it related to faulty intelligence in the lead up to the war and the lack of focus on security,” Bush told Hannity. “My brother’s admitted this. And we have to learn from that.”

Claiming he “misinterpreted” a question even more basic than “what newspapers do you read?” — that’s supposed to reassure voters he is ready to be leader of the free world? He thought Megyn Kelly meant “then” when she said “now” so you can understand why he struggled with a yes-or-no question to which the only acceptable answer is “no”? (Unless you are Dick Cheney, because Dick Cheney would invade the bejesus out of Iraq again, even knowing what we know now, for shits and giggles and because he just loves killing people, or at least shooting them in the face. But running on a “I’m just like Dick Cheney” platform is also not advisable.)

One of the many — many, many, oh so many — reasons Jeb Bush is never going to be president is that his brother almost destroyed America, and Americans, even though they are profoundly stupid, vaguely grasp that. Sure, it’s taken a decade for a majority to figure out what some dirty fucking hippies in the streets (and most of “old Europe” and the United Nations weapons inspectors) already knew before we got ourselves eternally quagmired there: that there was no goddamned reason to shock-and-awe Iraq in the first place, because there were no goddamned weapons, Saddam Hussein did not cook up 9/11 while chilling in Osama bin Laden’s rec room, and while Iraq was led by a third-rate jerkface, the nation was pretty well contained and not the ground zero for terrorists that it is now.

It is inconceivable (and yes, we are using that word correctly) to imagine that not a single one of Jeb Bush’s advisers have considered that Jeb would be required to comment on the failures of his brother’s miserable presidency. Especially after Jeb recently professed, in a move that seems calculated to ensure he never sets foot near the White House, that his brother is one of his foreign policy advisers.

Jeb’s fuck-up was so bad, he provided his Republican competitors in the race to lose to Hillary Clinton the opportunity to try to score easy points by saying that of course they would not invade Iraq, KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW NOW, although we cannot remember Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or Chris Christie marching with us in 2002 to oppose the invasion before it happened.

Admittedly, there is no good way for Jeb Bush to explain how he epic FAILED such an easy question. There is also no good way for Jeb Bush to explain why he is bothering to run for president. He was a lousy governor of Florida, which is why he’s still unpopular there — and, oh yeah, he’s got a family name that is so tainted with the stench of dead bodies and a broken economy and general stupidity that he’d be better off changing his last name to something more palatable to the American public. Like Hussein or Stalin or Castro, perhaps.

It’s not too late for Jeb to scrap the whole idea and decide not to run after all. There’s no Republican who has a sliver of a chance at winning the White House in 2016, but for Jeb especially, the only winning move is not to play.

    Also, knowing what we knew then, there was no reason whatsoever to invade Iraq. Except so Dubya could resolve his Oedipal issues.

      That much was painfully clear – to some of us.

    …the decision to invade Iraq falls into the same category as:

    -Knowing what we know now would you still take part in the slave trade?

    -Knowing what we know now would you allow your toddler to play with a loaded firearm?

    -Knowing what we know now would you have escalated the Vietnam war?

    -Knowing what we know now would you have invested your entire life savings into the development of the 8 track

    • Left Coast Tom

      -Knowing what we know now would you allow your toddler to play with a loaded firearm?

      Unfortunately, for the GOP base the answer to that one is “yes”.

      • HogeyeGrex

        Pretty sure they’re in for the pound on Vietnam and the slave trade, too. As long as the slaves don’t get freed, natch.

        The jury’s out on the 8 track thing, though.

    Ohhh he misunderinterpreted the question, FFS. The Bush brothers don’t have a complete brain among them, except for Neil, apparently he’s a criminal genius.

  • Zippy

    The real reason why Jerb will never get the nod is because the GOP power brokers read the polls that show a significant number of the GOP base will sit out the general election if he’s their candidate. Since that is unacceptable, he’s being hung out to dry now to send him a message. There’s a reason why so many conservative pundits savaged him for his recent remarks, instead of circling the wagons like they usually do. They want him to know in no uncertain terms that they do not have his back.

    Sorry, Jeb, but you’re going to have to decide what you love more, your brother or becoming president.

    • david green

      I don’t really think he has a chance on number 2, regardless of his dreams and aspirations. .

    What we knew THEN was that Real American Patriots line up and obey our President, no matter how dumb he is.

    What we know NOW is that “President” is just another word for “Dictator” and Real American Patriots aren’t required to listen to that uppity Kenyan because the Tenth Amendment says so (I think).

    In the unlikely event that another Republican ever becomes President, Real American Patriots go back to that “obey” stuff.

  • Beaumarchais?

    Still, I’d rather that he be their candidate than Scott Walker.

      You don’t have anything to worry about there. Just ignore the fluffing going on. Everyone knows this will be the Billionaires rentboy. They just like to play a little hard to get is all.

    The Bush brothers must take more after their mother’s side of the family. Barbara Pierce Bush is a descendant of president Franklin Pierce – the only president to date whose own party would not support his bid for a 2d term in office and he was not reelected. A notorious alcoholic, he ran over an elderly woman in Wash., D.C., with his horse while allegedly drunk. He was arrested but released when police realised who he was. Pierce is usually included in the lists of Worst U.S. Presidents.

      Good to know his descendants are keeping up THAT tradition.

    Hannity: Gobernador Heb. if you had known then, when Megyn asked the you the question, that by “then” she meant “then, ” not “now” and that by “now” she meant “now,” “not “then” would you have answered as you did, then or now.?

    Heb: Yes. Or no. Whichever one doesn’t make me look like an half-brained asshole.

      “known unknowns” or “unknown knowns”… “fool me twice”..,

  • MikeyArmstrong

    The prick choked on that answer because he was dying to deliver that zinger about Hillary also voting to invade Iraq.

    • Doug Langley

      Totally forgetting that Hillary has long since apologized for that vote.

    • kfreed

      Hillary and 70% of the population. We should definitely blame the people who were lied to rather than the people who did the lying.

  • anniegetyerfun

    Dear Jeb,

    The correct answer is: No, I would have invaded Syria and bombed Iran.

    It’s a stupid answer, but the wingnuts will love it and most Americans only vaguely understand what is happening in Syria now (ISIS!!!!).

    You’re welcome.

    Vote Bush if you want a third CHENEY term.

  • kfreed

    “faulty intelligence” which we made up and forced everyone to swallow… otherwise TRAITOR!

    Just ask Valerie Plame, Joe Wilson, and Scooter Libby.

    Sincerely,

    Realistically I think that Jeb’s strategy at this very initial stage in the campaign is to rehabilitate the Bush name. To that end I think he was looking for opportunities to put forth justifications for his brother’s actions. I think that it is indeed quite possible that he misheard the question because he was eagerly anticipating the chance to lay out the rationale that he then stated. He went into the interview with the plan to offer up this historical revision, and so when he heard the words “Iraq” and “would you do” he immediately went into his pre-planned spiel without noticing that the question was about today rather than 12 years ago. He was anticipating one particular question but instead was given another.
