Is Jeb Up To It?

by Deacon Blues

Jeb Bush backtracked today from his statement earlier this week, wherein he said that knowing what he knows now, if president himself he still would have invaded Iraq, just as his brother did in 2003.

Republican Jeb Bush reversed field on Thursday after a week of criticism and said that based on information known now, he would not have launched the Iraq war carried out by his brother, former President George W. Bush.

Jeb's flip-flop baffled Rick Santorum, after Bush's original statement raised eyebrows amongst other GOP contenders. Clearly, Jeb isn't ready for prime time. But if the GOP thought John Kerry's alleged "I was for the war before I was against it" stance disqualified him for the presidency in 2004, then how is Jeb qualified in 2016?
