Jeb Bush: I would have authorized Iraq War

CNN, By Eric Bradner, May 10

Washington – Jeb Bush said he would have done the same as his brother in deciding to go to war in Iraq if he had been president at the time.

His comments, in an interview with Fox News set to air on Monday night, come in the wake of Bush’s private statement that he relies on his brother, former President George W. Bush, as an adviser on some Middle East affairs.

“I would have [authorized the invasion], and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody. And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got,” Bush said in the interview.

Clinton’s 2003 vote in support of a resolution to green-light the war in Iraq was a key part of the 2008 campaign, then then-Sen. Barack Obama hammered her hawkish stance. It could help Bush blur lines between the two when it comes to his brother’s legacy.

And there it is!!! No one is better than Jebby Bush on the war question, so you might as well vote for him!
