The part of Jebbie talking about Iraq that caught my attention

Most reporting on the Republican proto-candidate's declaration has focused on his saying that he'd invade Iraq over again, knowing what he knows now. And that's bat-shit crazy. But that's not what grabbed my attention.

This did.

Bush said that the administration of his brother, President George W. Bush, failed to establish security in Iraq after toppling the regime of Saddam Hussein. That caused Iraqis to turn against the American invasion, Jeb Bush said.

“By the way, guess who thinks that those mistakes took place as well? George W. Bush,” he said.

"So just for the news flash to the world, if they’re trying to find places where there’s big space between me and my brother, this might not be one of those," he added.

Clearly it is more important to Jeb Bush that he not piss off his family than that he learn from the catastrophic imperial adventures of his brother.

This guy never cut the cord. I don't want my country governed by the family dynamics of a bunch of dysfunctional plutocrats.

It looks like he's not going to have much chance unless his backers can literally buy the nomination. What has gotten me is how each of these Repubs have a billionaire backer, like Rubio. What a nation we have become. :( It doesn't matter a lot to me which of these characters running get-- it as they are all horrible-- horribler or horriblest ;).

I don't plan to vote for him (or Hillary for that matter). He's not popular with the Republican "base" because he's seen both as moderate and yet another Bush.

Hillary's billionaire backer.

Clinton is out, period. Sanders not good enough.

"Sanders’ Israel policy seems likely to tilt more toward Tel Aviv than that of Obama."
