According to the Los Angeles Times, Jeb Bush just blamed President Obama and Hillary Clinton for the decline, war and mess in Iraq. That’s like blaming Winston Churchill for World War Two and giving Hitler a pass.
In what his campaign billed as a major speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Bush… blamed the Obama administration — and its former secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton — for the rise of the Islamic State militant group, also known as ISIS.
“Radical Islam has been spreading like a pandemic,” he said, vowing to be “resolute … in the defeat of radical Islamic terrorism wherever it appears.”…
But the approach, particularly the emphasis on the military, carries considerable risk for Bush, heir to a name that is closely connected in the minds of many voters with a deeply unpopular war.
Let’s get one thing clear: The Bush family created ISIS. The Bush family started a stupid evil war. The Bush family discredited America and ruined our economy. Before Bush we had mere terror. Now we have a spreading caliphate and a 100 year holy war on our hands.
Jeb is no Catholic, Christian or even political leader. He is a goddamned liar. Think that’s harsh? What is harsh is 5000 dead Americans, hundreds of thousands of dead Arabs, the entire Christian population of the Middle East killed, chased fled.
The Bush family and only the Bush nest of oligarchs is responsible. We’ll be living with the consequences of the fool Bushes for a 100 years. Damn!
I don’t believe in hell but if there was one the Bush tribe would burn, for war, for murder and now for the biggest lie I’ve heard in American politics told by Jeb: this shape-shifting, blame-shifter liar.
